Default Re: The Official Mjolnir Thread

Odin was definitely underpowered, but other than the dimensional portals, I thought Thor and Mjolnir were handled pretty well. Thor is clearly strong as s***, as seen from his tossing the frost giants around like ragdolls, and Mjolnir demonstrated a lot of cool powers. Maybe it's not 100% at the level of the high-end power feats we've seen in the comics, but that's 50 years of writers and artists one-upping each other vs. 2 hours of one cohesive vision for the character and weapon.

Besides, it would've taken away a lot of the dramatic impact of everything with Bifrost if Thor (and Sif, actually, if you read the older comics) could easily do what it does.
