#1- The Big Difference

Feature Detail

Perhaps the one major difference between Mjolnir and Stormbreaker, though, is the “worthy” factor. Mjolnir, of course, was enchanted by Odin in such a manner that only those who are deemed worthy are capable of wielding the mighty hammer. Stormbreaker, on the other hand, doesn’t have such an enchantment on it. Nevertheless, in some stories, such as Beta Ray Bill: Godhunter, Stormbreaker is depicted as only being capable of being wielded by those deemed worthy.

So, all things considered, is the MCU iteration of Thor better off now that he has Stormbreaker at his side instead of Mjolnir? Well, obviously, the on-screen version of the battle-axe differs a bit from its comic book counterpart, sharing some similarities with Jarnbjorn and the Ultimate Mjolnir, but we certainly think the God of Thunder will be just fine with his new sidearm.
