A fan on Reddit shared an image of Steve Rogers riding his motorcycle without a helmet or a face shield, which are mandatory for bikers in New York, and jokingly stated that this disregard for a basic law along with the fact that he refused to sign Sokovia Accords made him unworthy. Yes, that’s right. Captain America is a petty miscreant, and that is the reason why according to the fan, Mlonir didn’t find him worthy.
Mjolnir’s like, ‘Great track record dude! Heart of gol… YOU DIDN’T WEAR YOUR HELMET NO CAN DO MR. AMERICA,'” a user commented.
There is a scene in Avengers: Age of Ultron where the heroes try lifting Mjolnir, but, while it proves to be impossible for most including the green monster because strength is not the quality that allows you to wield the enchanted hammer. One has to be worthy of it and although Thor was confident and amused as he knew his teammates would fail, but, Steve managed to budge it slightly, and that made Thor nervous. Since Steve couldn’t lift it, the common idea is that Mjolnir found him partly worthy. That is the perception that this hilarious Reddit explanation digs into.
Having said that and leaving jokes alone, the writer/director of Age of Ultron, Joss Whedon also never revealed whether Steve was worthy or not. Back in 2015, during SDCC, Whedon faced the question, and his response indicated that probably Steve was worthy.
“Is he not?” Whedon said. “Are we sure? Did he fail? Or did he stop?”
Although, that might be questionable, and we know it has been the topic of debates over the years, and the question of worthiness has become fairly outdated now. We saw Mjolnir getting destroyed in Thor: Ragnarok by Thor’s sister Hela (Cate Blanchett). Thor got a new weapon in Avengers: Infinity War when he visited Nidavelir to forge Stormbreaker as part of his endeavor to stop Thanos.
Although it is definitely heavy, Stormbreaker doesn’t have any enchantments like Mjolnir, so it might never be known what made Captain America unworthy.
Avengers: Infinity War is available on Digital, and it will be out on Blu-ray and DVD tomorrow. Future MCU films include Captain Marvel on March 8, 2019, Avengers 4 on May 3, 2019, and Spider-Man: Far From Home on July 5, 2019.
