Non-Marvel Characters Who Could Lift Thor’s Hammer


If Captain America can lift Mjolnir, then Superman certainly can. In fact, during DC/Marvel crossovers, HE HAS lifted the hammer and used its power.

Superman meets all the requirements to lift Mjolnir and then some. His Kansas upbringing by the kind-hearted Ma and Pa Kent instilled a goodness into Superman during his childhood under the adopted name of Clark Kent. While his spirit is pure, he has shown that under extreme circumstances he will actually take a life, even if it breaks his heart to do so. Remember the anguish when he broke Zod’s neck in Man Of Steel?

When it comes to a lust for battle, Superman has to hold back most of the time. But when he’s faced Mongol, Darkseid or Doomsday, he’s cut lose with a ferocity that would make Thor shudder.

Given that Thor is often seen as Marvel’s Superman, it’s unsurprising that Superman would be able to lift the hammer. The bigger question would be, if Thor used it to pummel Superman, which would break first? The man of steel, or the Uru hammer?
