Deadpool wielding a fake Mjolnir (Loki's classic)... Thorpool!

Thors hammer was once taken by an ice giant and the giant said that the only way he would give it back was if he gave him one of the goddesses.
Not wanting to give up the goddess Thor consulted the other gods for ideas. Loki had the best one, he would dress Thor up as said goddess and go to the ice giant.
So Thor dressed in drag sat on the ice giants lap, took the hammer and beat the **** out of him.

TL;DR imagine thor in drag beating up an ice giant

As far as I remember Loki was with him aswell, so two norse gods dressed up as females at thors wedding
#19 to #14 - Rascal (05/20/2013) [-]
If I remember correctly it was stated that Loki had to make the deal. Since it was originally Loki's fault. This makes a disguise for Loki seem rather silly since he didn't need one.

We did that story as a play in my school once.
Can't for the life of me remember what I played as though...

Duuuude, we did the same thing at my school once. I take it you are from Norway as well?
I think I was Heimdall in that play.
And here I thought I had forgotton those horrible songs in that play! xD

yeah but in the original mythology Loki isn't an bad guy
User avatar #287 to #281 - splendiddust (05/21/2013) [-]
yeah but he does kind of start ragnarok
User avatar #290 to #287 - hektoroftroy (05/21/2013) [-]
true, but the comics decided trickster=villian
even though trickster refers to his high intellect and his ability to shapeshift
i do love the comics though and the movie's pretty good too, looking forward to the dark world

#38 to #6 - ariusbrightwing (05/20/2013) [-]

Maybe he was holding Neil, and by extension was picking up the hammer, so it was 'kay? or maybe he handed it to him in a norse way to make him hold it

>Measuring in elephants

It's the only way.
User avatar #169 to #85 - TheMather ONLINE (05/20/2013) [-]
It's more understandeable that way than saying it weighs 2.1 trillion tons, or 2.1 quadrillion kilos.
#181 to #85 - Rascal (05/20/2013) [-]
You get the **** out.
#56 - rattara (05/20/2013) [-]
It was forged in the heart of a dying star...Mjolnir its self is made of the magical metal "uru" just like the spear of odin and much asgardian armor and arms. This has been a topic of discussion in many Marvel forums as well as Scandinavian lore.

TL;DR The hammer isn't made or ever was made of star matter.
#156 to #56 - Rascal (05/20/2013) [-]
If you think about it the only way to account for it's incredible weight would be that it's made of an ultra-dense material (such as the matter of a neutron star). Now as for how he lifts that? Probably magic.
User avatar #57 to #56 - BlueToaster (05/20/2013) [-]
Forge doesn't mean it took material from the star. It means to smelt and mold something- as in Mjolnir.
User avatar #58 to #57 - rattara (05/20/2013) [-]
Why did you reply, to say exactly what I said? I know what a forge is and what it is to forge...Neil deGrasse Tyson "If Thor's hammer is made of neutron star matter..." nowhere in Marvel or Scandinavian lore does it say it is star matter...it's Uru.
User avatar #59 to #58 - BlueToaster (05/20/2013) [-]
Oh! I thought you were disagreeing with what he said by stating a different perspective of what he said. My bad.
User avatar #60 to #59 - rattara (05/20/2013) [-]
All good, man. I assumed as much by the fact that you reiterating and reinforcing what I said.
#132 to #56 - Rascal (05/20/2013) [-]
Technically, everything was once star matter, and therefore, it is.

it takes him so much effort to get it off the ground, but once he does it's all of a sudden super light. ok.

It was made in the heart of a dyeing star, not from one. It's made of Uru, and is enchanted so that only those worthy can wield it.

thats in the movie from what i know of in the comics he got mad enough cuz he couldent lift it and eventually did lift it.

Thor's hammer is made of a rare type of metal called Uru. Only those who the hammer deems worthy can lift it and wield it's power. nerd knowledge

User avatar #234 to #219 - AlanbalMIT (05/21/2013) [-]
I don't wanna arge about that, but then why did Odin (I'll be honest, I only saw the movies) said that it was made by the neutron star matter?
User avatar #267 to #234 - lateday (05/21/2013) [-]
Wasn't it "made IN the heart of a dying star"?
#238 to #219 - hopalongreborn (05/21/2013) [-]
I read "rape type of metal"
#18 - Rascal (05/20/2013) [-]
"Implied by legend"
No, it's implied by legend that the two dwarven forgers put iron in the forge. Not neutron star matter. Just iron.
source:
http://en.wikipedia . org/wiki/Mj%C3%B6lnir
Just scroll to the prose edda part.
User avatar #23 to #18 - trollchildxy (05/20/2013) [-]
Because wikipedia is a great source of factual information on something as obscure as thor's hammer. Specifically.

Guess what? Theres a few dozen different stories, because each **** told their children a different version.
#32 to #23 - Rascal (05/20/2013) [-]
Perhaps, but that doesn't change the fact that back then they didn't know what a neutron star was. Iron and steel were the only metals they knew that could be used in weapons.
The neutron star thingy was made-up by Marvel.
Also this comes from the Prose Edda. Written by Snorri Sturluson. It's the only written stories we have from Norse Mythology. I know it's kinda like saying "it's in the bible so it must be true", but the Proze Edda is all we really have. We don't have any other 'legit' stories or references that haven't been warped by time too much.
User avatar #33 to #32 - trollchildxy (05/20/2013) [-]
Mmm Just throwing some devils advocation, you're right about the neutron star bit, they didn't have that terminology back then. But I have heard of it being crafted from a meteorite (however, some meteorites are just iron. So still the iron theory holds.)
#35 to #33 - Rascal (05/20/2013) [-]
Interesting. I have actually never heard of this.
Though that could explain a few extra things of why Mjölnir was deemed so special.
