Description

Mjolnir (pron myol-n(ee)r) is the favored weapon of the superhero Thor. The weapon, which first appears in Journey into Mystery #83, published in August 1962, was created by writer Stan Lee and designed by artists Jack Kirby and Joe Sinnott. Mjolnir is typically depicted as a large, square-headed gray Lump hammer. It has a short, round handle wrapped in brown leather, culminating in a looped lanyard. The object is based on Mj√∂lnir, the weapon of the mythical Norse god. The hammer’s name translates as “The Grinder.” Mjolnir is forged by Dwarven blacksmiths, and is composed of the fictional Asgardian metal “uru”. The side of the hammer carries the inscription “Whosoever holds this hammer, if he be worthy, shall possess the power of Thor.”
