    A totally random thing I would love to see in Avengers 2 is Captain America casually handing Mjolnir over to Thor, without realising what he just did.

    We can wait for Avengers 3(or whatever title it uses) for that one.

    It would be a pretty cool scene though.

    Can he do that in the comics out of interest?

    Cap has wielded Mjolnir in the comics before, yes.

    Why is he able to win no other "mere mortal" can't?

    Because he is "Worthy" of Thor's power.

    Anyone who is worthy can lift Thor's hammer, but the list is small. As I recall (and using the internet to check), I know that people like Captain America, Thunderstrike and Beta Ray Bill have lifted it, and several credible places including comicvine also say that Wonder Man and Awesome Android have lifted it, along with Odin, Thor's grandfather Bor and great grandfather Buri.

    Superman and Wonder Woman have wielded it in crossovers as well. I was reading up on it after I watched Thor 2 and apparently the creator of Beta Ray Bill suggested that Captain America wouldn't have been able to pick up Mjolnir because he was too patriotic and Mjolnir required a warrior's mentality, so he created Beta Ray Bill.

    There's also the alternate universe where Rogue accidentally absorbed Thor when she fought the Avengers during her time as an evil mutant, and Thor's personality eventually helped her to become a hero in that reality. She became his successor.

    Elizabeth Olsen finally confirms what most of us already knew:

    I was always under the impression that Dazzler can wield Thor's hammer....


    Just kidding.

    I doubt that she could wield it effectively at all even if it was a normal hammer.

    This quote from Elizabeth Olsen made me chuckle...
    I wonder if her "homework" includes the "Ultimate" version of the characters, and if it did, if she still thought it "funny" or disturbing that she's playing Aaron Taylor Johnson's wife in one film and his brother in the next.:eek::p

    ^^^In that case wouldn't she be relieved because she can still pretend she's playing his wife ;)

    I don't read the Ultimate lines because they aren't really my thing, but just what was the reasoning behind giving those two an incestual relationship?
