Many years ago, a powerful cosmic storm by the name of the God Tempest approached Asgard. The storm had the power to knock planets out of their orbit. However; Odin battled the storm until it weakened and trapped the God Tempest into a chunk of Urn. Urn is a metal ore which resembles stone, with metallic properties and can store magic and energy. Odin then ordered the Dwarves of Nidavellir to forge Mjölnir and the rest is history – pretty much.
Marvel Studios released the long-awaited Thor: Ragnarok trailer where we see Hela (Cate Blanchett), the Asgardian goddess of death, destroy Thor’s hammer Mjölnir. What does this mean for Thor? We honestly don’t know but he will most likely have a more powerful hammer forged. In the Ultimate Universe, Thor has multiple hammers which all carry the name Mjölnir and he can wield whichever one he wants.
Thor’s new hammer shares the same powers as the old look but has some new abilities. For example, new Mjölnir can teleport objects and people of a vast quantity and you don’t have to be worthy to wield it. Also, it has an axe on one end, as you can see below.
It’s very possible Thor could wield the new Mjölnir towards the end of Thor: Ragnarok just in time for Avengers: Infinity War. However, we will just have to wait and see.
In Marvel Studios’ ‘Thor: Ragnarok’, Thor is imprisoned on the other side of the universe without his mighty hammer and finds himself in a race against time to get back to Asgard to stop Ragnarok—the destruction of his homeworld and the end of Asgardian civilization—at the hands of an all-powerful new threat, the ruthless Hela. But first he must survive a deadly gladiatorial contest that pits him against his former ally and fellow Avenger—the Incredible Hulk!
