Avengers: Endgame Possibly Revealed Vision Isn't Truly Worthy Of Mjolnir

Anyone who has seen Avengers: Endgame is undoubtedly pleased with the fact that Steve Rogers is truly "worthy" as he wielded Mjolnir in the film's final act. On the other hand, Captain America's newfound power may have also confirmed that The Vision wasn't actually "worthy" in the first place.

One of the ongoing jokes in Avengers: Age of Ultron was how nobody could pick up Thor's hammer (Steve made it budge an inch but that didn't count back then). So it was a total shocker when the newly created Vision casually picked Mjolnir up and offered it to the God of Thunder. At the end of the film, Steve and Tony Stark tried to theorize that Vision was able to do so because he was a machine (also, this resulted in the hilarious Mjolnir in an elevator line).

But did Endgame actually confirm that Vision was just a machine that could do what an elevator does? A post on Reddit suggests that the idea was proven when Steve could actually call the hammer to himself and summon lightning. It also points out that while Vision can wield Mjolnir, he was never able to possess the power of Thor as the inscription on the hammer dictates: "Whosoever holds this hammer, if he be worthy, shall possess the power of Thor."

It's an interesting thought that somehow belittles Vision as a character and the original poster even pointed out that they had no intention of "doing him dirty." Unfortunately, it could mean that although Vis can hold the hammer, he doesn't seem to be capable of summoning lightning like Thor and Steve.

Do you think Vision is truly worthy despite the Endgame revelation? Sound off in the comments below.
