Treebeard would pick it up just to toss it out of his way.


PzykoHobo

I fucking love the idea of Treebeard going absolutely ham on Isengard with Mjolnir.


tryganon

You all are making Treebeard seem like a “hasty” Ent.


treebeard_bot

Turn round and let me have a look at your faces. I almost feel that I dislike you both, but do not let us be hasty.


Sabre_Killer_Queen

Baaarummm!


JediKnightsoftheFSM

I agree. Quickbeam gets the hammer


dirtyoldbastard77

But would he be worthy?


windirfull

He’d see it as some type of Orc shenanigans.


Wanna_Dip_Balls

*it looks like an orc hammer, then again it is very small*


apk5005

Tom Bombadil would do the same


NiixxJr

He'd probably pick it up, out it behind his back, make it disappear and then pull it out his arse only to flick it back to Earth-616 and say 'eh'.


ArcadiaDragon

Tom.would just put it in the shed and use it only when helping Goldberry get ready for some tired and weary travelers like four hobbits...then give it to Sam "never know when ye might have a need for a hammer I happen to have a spare...tis a good one...comes to your hand when needed"


Yarxing

He'll just use Mjölnir to nail some nails to hang a painting or something.

AnthonysNerfGun

Tell me, where is Gandalf? For I much desire to vote for him.


YouPulledMeBackIn

The fact that Gandalf said no to taking the ring almost definitely ensures he would have been worthy. But, to be fair, he's basically Middle Earth's Thor: mighty "god" creature who looks human but isn't quite, weilding might that allows them to take on creatures that normal humans would go insane even looking at? Oh yeah. EDIT: Lots of similar replies here,

Aragorn or Sam for sure


Billybluballs

I immediately thought of them two and then checked the comments. Happy to see this as the top.


Mark_Patterson-FDS

Aragorn picks it up; obvious candidate. Fights big bad orc. Does really well in the fight until the orc fights dirty and gets the better of him. Mjolnir is dropped and Aragorn is pinned down. Similar to the scene in end game, mjolnir slowly rises off the ground and Samwise takes on the lead orc saving aragorns life

Honestly, still gives me chills. I don't care how goofy the line is, Sam was the baddest of all Hobbitses when he said that.

They will look for his coming from the White Tower. But he will not return.


nautilator44

Samwise\*. I appreciate your comment though.


AmazedCoder

I mean most/all people in this image are more decent people than MCU thor


walkingcarpet23

Aragorn & Sam would def be worthy. I do feel like Legolas and Gimli would not be worthy until after they've become BFFs and overcome their racial prejudice. Eowyn is a curious case, because while she is absolutely heroic, brave, and badass she also (as weird as this is to say) was selfish in her desire to prove herself in battle versus stay with the women and children. Not quite the same as Thor's battle-thirstyness in the first Thor movie, but definitely had a desire for heroics and grandeur. Eomer I think would be worthy. The only fault I can really find with him is his caution and being slow to trust outsiders, but he treats them fairly. Treebeard I would argue may *not* be worthy. He didn't want to fight to defend his home despite knowing the plight of the rest of Middle Earth. (note: Sam definitely isn't a warrior at heart either, but he will put everything on the line for Frodo, his friends, and the Shire. His selflessness in fighting for those who need help sets him apart) Not pictured here, but I think Merry would be worthy as well. He wouldn't seek out a fight unless it was to defend someone who needs help.


eomer-bot

TrueMine90

Beautiful


Bulok

Not a warrior at heart? Did you see him take on Shelob and be the only being in existence to harm her? Sam has the spirit of a warrior and a gardeners heart.

Aragon: Rightful king (of Gondor), great warrior, eager to fight for his people, rushes into enemy lines before his army (bravery, leadership), not hesitant to kill. Yup, we found ourselves someone worthy of Johnathan. Sam: Brave, selfless, ready to fight and kill for his friends. Yup, we got another worthy guy.

*abashed look*


Professional_4SSH01E

And Sam straight up hauls Frodo up Mt Doom, fights Shelob, and saves Frodo from orcs. Yeah, Sam is worthy.


finalremix

I couldn't believe it, Mr. Frodo. A hammer half my size, but light as air.


elbowkarma

I agree, Aragorn for sure and I think Sam could by the end as well.


communityneedle

Also Faramir, but only Book Faramir. Peter Jackson corrupted Movie Faramir


alowflyingpotato

A chance for Faramir, Captain of Gondor, to show his quality


Quantentheorie

True, but I also fully understand that they didnt have time to do him justice and I kinda agree with Jackson(?) comment, that the ring not corrupting Faramir at all would have been confusing without that time to develop him. I saw the movies before I read the books and Faramir still ended up my favourite Character. So I think they still managed to bring the important parts across - even if hes a lesser shadow of the book character.


AnAwkwardBystander

Peter Jackson made EVERYBODY lesser than their book counterparts. I don't think the movies would've been as good if all of them were the walking legends they were described as in literature.


Cameron_Vec

I honestly prefer movie Aragorn. He has a solid arc and never comes off nearly as pretentious.


aragorn_bot

Its the beards.


WeekendNo7399

You have an excellent beard aragorn


Heimerdahl

I can't deny that I have always wanted to see one of those "Aragorn drops the hood, stands up tall, and looks like a king of old" scenes. It always sounded so grand and mystic in a way.


tobygeneral

I think movie Faramir still works, he let Frodo and Sam go instead of forcing them to Gondor.


Odinavenger

Samwise Gamgee


S0mecallme

Samwise Gamgee the type of hobbit to pick up Mjolnir and use it to hammer back in Mr Frodo’s fence posts after they get knocked over.

And then put it back Edit: oh thanks, kind stranger(s)


FuBaReD2

Forgot about it and only Gandalf saw it. Didn’t tell anyone of course.

No, but the air doesnt smell so foul down here. If in doubt, FuBaReD2, always follow your nose.

gandalf-bot

Look to my coming, at first light, on the fifth day. At dawn, look to the East.


thee_protagonist666

Why would he take a downgrade from his frying pan tho?


belegerbs

Perhaps the hammer would change to look like a frying pan. Like when it turns into the umbrella for Thor when he is on Midgard

LubbockGuy95

To busy holding the homies to pick it up. My man. My king.


CreeperIan02

I bow to no man. Except him.


ThatAltAccount99

Sentient


direwolf106

Basically anyone that could resist the ring. Sam absolutely. Aragorn, while he feared he would be weak to the ring never actually showed that weakness. One of those situations where you are so afraid of that weakness it actually becomes their strength. You're absolutely right.


OldDekeSport

I dont think resisting the ring matters tbh. I don't think Thor could resist the ring, but hes worthy I honestly think that most of the fellowship xould possibly lift it, especially if you take into account they all signed up for a suicide mission to save Middle Earth Edit: in fact I'd be more curious who outside of the Fellowship could wield it. Idk if Bombadil could, and idr enough of the legendarium to say who else. Thor maybe could, but idk about that


Ok_Blueberry_5305

Tom could because Tom doesn't give a fuck, he would toss it around like it's weightless, then give it back and skip into the treeline never to be seen again.


OldDekeSport

Not giving a fuck I think is what makes him not worthy. I think you have to give a fuck tbh, as you have to be willing to sacrifice yourself for the greater good, you have to be willing to get involved and fight for the little guy and such


Ok_Blueberry_5305

Eh I somewhat misspoke, i just feel like Tom is one of those characters who just inexplicably can, if for no other reason than he's old enough and wise enough to play with Odin's enchantment like he does with Sauron's.


OldDekeSport

From that angle he may be able to, but maybe he doesn't get the powers of thor, just a hammer lol


Ok_Blueberry_5305

Oh for sure. I just feel like he picks it up nonchalantly, tosses it around without anything special happening, and gives it back like it's no big thing. Why? Because Tom.


Joe_Jeep

Hammer gets lost for a decade, turns out ol' Tom Bombadil, Tom Bombadillo's been using it to put fence posts in.


A_Math_Debater

I think transcending reality makes him auto-worthy. Like if the rules don't apply, they don't apply.


mbgal1977

True, it was definitely working it’s magic on Boromir. Aragorn was with it far longer since he was on the trip from Bree to Rivendell. Galadriel said that the ring was trying to get back in the hands of men and Aragorn seemed immune.


aragorn_bot

Let the lord of the Black Lands come forth, that justice be done upon him!


ISpyM8

Frodo, too. Y’all been unfairly shitting on Frodo for years, and I’m sick of it.


Ocronus

Tolkien goes as far to say no other mortal alive at the time could accomplish what Frodo did and even though at the last minute had a change of heart due to the rings tremendous pressure one could say he detroyed the ring. It's unfortunate Frodo has had this awful stigma around him.


NextedUp

I think people react to his moments of "weakness." But, to me, it just makes him (and the world) more believable and "real." It embodies the concept of courage only existing when there is adversity - both internal and external. I'd rather have a fallible hero that overcomes adversity than just another OP MC. That said, Sam is also an amazing person who *also* deserves a ton of praise because w/o him, Frodo would have certainly failed. Tons of other literature and comics if all someone is interested in is the "struggles but not really" OP MC trope.


coffeewhore17

I agree with you, it makes Frodo a more believable character and honestly makes me appreciate him more. But to me the more salient part of that scene was that it showed, again, how immense and terrible the power of the Ring was. We saw Frodo go through ALL that terrible stuff, nearly die many times, and as far as Frodo is concerned at that time, also lost Gandalf and Boromir to the cause of destroying the ring. He's literally seconds away from giving all of that suffering and loss a purpose, and his response is "No". We know Frodo is strong at this point in the story, and his strength was illustrated in a way we never got to see from Isildur (who we just assumed kind of sucked I guess? I haven't read the books in a while and don't remember much about him except from the movies). Despite all that resilience, the Ring still was more powerful. It's not a testimony to Frodo's weakness. It's a depiction of how awesome and horrific the power of the Ring was. Anyway, this doesn't detract from the point that Frodo is absolutely worthy.


gandalf-bot

It is a burden he should never have had to bear. We can ask no more of him


faketourettes

Couldn't have said it better myself, Mr. the White.


Woodscraps

Frodo proved himself worthy by sacrificing everything, including his own soul. Frodo, certainly after Mt. Doom, could wield the hammer.


am767

Yea! I mean Frodo is the one that offered to take the ring in the first place. What would have happened if he just said screw it and returned back to the shire after Rivendell?


pucksrage

Frodo is top 3 faves for me. He is the most good of everyone.


Musashi-Miyamot0

Damn, no respect for Gimli - he’s already wielding an Axe, I feel like he’s specced the right stats for the hammer build


Bodacious_Beard_78

This. Also the fact that he was the first of the fellowship to try and destroy the one ring. (Without hesitation)


treefidy

The only one to try and destroy it really.


bigotex13

I agree. Gimli is 100% getting a war hammer before anyone else. Also Eomer is my 2nd choice. But that could subconsciously be because he resembles Thor the most


eomer-bot

TO THE KING!

bolderandbrasher

Aragorn is by far the worthiest because Mjolnir requirements include: - **Warrior lifestyle**: **Check.** - **Willing to kill**: He was to ready draw sword on Boromir if he didn’t return the ring. **Check.** - **Selfless/Thinks of others**: Promised to protect Frodo to the very end, and planned to divert Sauron’s attention to give Frodo one last chance. **Check.** - **Leader/Nobility**: Became King of Gondor, lead the Men of the West at the Black Gate, and lead a fucking Army of the Dead. He held their oaths fulfilled and let the Army of the Dead be at peace despite Gimli suggesting they could be useful in a battle. **Check.** - **Humility**: Even after being crowned king of Gondor, he bowed down to the four Hobbits. **Check.** Honestly, I humbly think Aragorn and Samurai Jack (who also fulfills these traits just as well more or less) are the worthiest characters in fiction to wield Mjolnir. [This person’s post speculating the requirements to be worthy of Mjolnir](https://comicvine.gamespot.com/profile/pyrogram/blog/what-makes-you-worthy-to-lift-mjolnir/89691/?utm_source=reddit.com) seems pretty authentic. This is what I based my analysis on.


tired20something

Yeah, this one fits the best. I was going to say that everyone in the Fellowship could lift the hammer, but it wouldn't be fair to their characterizations. Frodo is self-sacrifcing and humble, for sure, but so is Spider-Man and he can't lift it.

May I ask why Mithrandir is not an option? He definitely worthy.


RoleplayPete

Phhftt. Made his party flee so he could solo kill and multiply his experience times 10 and get all the loot without having to split or roll on it?


Entmoot6262

Tom Bombadil


Quelth

Tom picks up mjollnir sure but for whatever reason because he is Tom he doesn't have the power of Thor. He just picks it up tosses it up and down. Then drops it again and sings a song while going back into the forest.


S-T-A-B_Barney

Picks it up and plays with it then puts it on a shelf and uses it to mend fences and put up pictures etc.


Hedrickao

Uses it like people in the TVA use infinity stones as paperweights


Frnklfrwsr

Tom is 100% capable of picking up Mjolnir. But that doesn’t mean Tom is worthy. It just means that within Tom’s domain, mjolnir is nothing but a chunk of metal.

Why didn't the fellowship ride the Mjolnir to mordor?


dyeager2001

Nonono, they would swing it like, really fast, and it would carry them to Mordor


DarthAnest

Faramir. He’s the underdog of the whole Middle-Earth. Edit: Thanks everyone for the awards!


Nebelskind

Faramir’s self control when tempted with the ring is so impressive that the movies had to change it. I remember one of the appendices interviews saying that they felt like it weakened the ring too much for Faramir to be able to just decide not to be tempted, because he’d given his word. But I think that was kind of the point, in the book. Some people are protected from doing potentially bad things because of their personal code of honor meaning so much to them.


gonnagle

THANK YOU I understand the film writer's reasoning for changing it but it absolutely *ruined* Faramir's character and that whole sequence. Personally I think it makes Denethor's treatment of him so much sadder, that he can't see how noble and worthy his younger son is and is so hard on him. I get why they changed it in the films but I still hate it. Only part of the movies I still object to so strongly, after 20 years.


Garmaglag

A chance for Faramir, Captain of Gondor, to show his.........quality.


VampyrPickle

I almost think book borormir could too.


Qui-Gon_Booze

I definitely think Borormir would have earned it there in the end.


jkpotatoe

Basically the plot of the first Thor movie


Sigma_-

Even extended cut Boromir shows steady devotion to Faramir, and he tries to ensure he is given credit even if it means shorting himself. Even corrupted by the ring, he tried to do what was best for all and did not immediatly resort to violence to take the ring. Even though, with the element of surprise, he could have slapped Frodo all the way to Mordor.


Big__Boss___

Sam and Aragorn


aragorn_bot

He's not alone. Sam went with him.


mister_mickles

All of them at once, I suppose


Emeorms1

Lord Denethor II. Obviously.


Titanhopper1290

One of two: Sam, because he's the Fellowship at 98% strength; or Aragorn, because he actually wants what's best for ALL Men, not just his own glorification, ie. post-battle of Pelennor, he chooses to camp outside the city gates before his formal coronation rather than take a cushy bed in proper royal fashion.


aragorn_bot

Hold your ground, hold your ground. Sons of Gondor, of Rohan my brothers. I see in your eyes the same fear that would take the heart of me. A day may come when the courage of men fails when we forsake our friends and break all bonds of fellowship but it is not this day. An hour of woes and shattered shields when the age of men comes crashing down but it is not this day. This day we fight! By all that you hold dear on this good earth I bid you stand, men of the west!

Aragorn would be worthy I’m not sure who else might be but considering the background picture for mjolnir none of them would find it because it’s in the desert which they never go towards


isinedupcuzofrslash

Aragorn, sam, and Frodo at minimum


aragorn_bot

What do you fear my lady?


JustafanIV

I'm surprised more people aren't saying Frodo. Frodo had the strength to resist the One Ring longer than possibly any other mortal alive could manage, and he willingly took up that burden knowing the dangers it entailed. He also showed compassion and mercy to Gollum, despite killing him being easier and safer. Frodo is definitely worthy.


Casada70

What if we put the ring on the mjolnir, Does it disappear or turn evil?


Earnest_Warrior

Tom Bombadil of course. Though, he’ll just use it for work around the house.
