‘Man At Arms’ Recreates Thor’s Hammer, Sadly Does Not Allow You To Call Lightning To Smite Thine Foes

Man At Arms Screenshot

Marvel's fair-haired Odison is back in theaters with Thor: The Dark World, and that means that public interest in beating things to death with a magic hammer is at an all-time high, particularly for people who were already interested in fictional weaponry to begin with. Such is the case for Master Swordsmith Tony Swatton, star of the Man at Arms series of web videos, who was deluged with requests to build a replica of Thor's hammer and obliged this week.

Now obviously, the only real way to build Mjölnir is to have the dwarves of Svartalfheim forge it from mystical Uru metal in a forge powered by the heat of a dying star and then imbue it with the Odinpower, but failing that, Swatton does a pretty decent job. Check out his work in the video below!

‘Thor: The Dark World’ Is A Good Time At The Movies (Most Of The Time) [Review]

Thor 2

If you boiled down Marvel's movies to a basic formula, the first Thor film would be a perfect example of it. It's got some decent superhero action, a lot of shoehorned-in S.H.I.E.L.D. stuff, and one huge feather in its cap: A sense of humor about itself and its characters.

Luckily, the new sequel, Thor: The Dark World, is like its predecessor in that it's not afraid to include some levity. As long as that keeps up, it's a jaunty, enjoyable flick. It's only when the movie gets capital-s Serious -- and luckily that's not too often -- that it gets into some trouble.

Stan Lee Says Thor Flying Makes More Sense Than Superman, The Angry Nerd… Doesn’t [Video]

Mjolnir Physics
Stan Lee's World of Heroes/Wired

As the famed co-creator of much of the Marvel Comics universe and cameo king of its current crop of films, Stan Lee enjoys a certain amount of leeway (*ba-dump!) when it comes to opining about pop culture. Take this week's installment of the serialized "Stan's Rants" video series. Lee somewhat dramatically explains that Thor's method of flight makes more sense to him than Superman's. While Superman's solar-powered Kryptonian cells enable him to navigate any axis without an explanation besides "He can," Thor has to chuck his mystical uru mallet Mjolnir in the direction he wishes to travel and catch a ride by holding onto its attached thong. As Wired's Angry Nerd points out, however, Thor's way is still a violation of the laws of physics fit for the gods.

‘Hulk And The Agents Of S.M.A.S.H.’ Week 8: ‘Hulks On Ice’ [Interview]

Hulk and Thor

Just a few weeks away from the release of his latest movie, Thor made an appearance on Marvel's Hulks And The Agents Of S.M.A.S.H. Any team up of the two creates an interesting dynamic for a few reasons. Aside from being one of the few characters in the Marvel Universe who potentially matches the Hulks in terms of strength, Thor is also, as an Asgardian god, pretty used to fighting with or against beings like the Hulks, not to mention the villains for this episode: the frost giants Laufey and Ymir.

We were again joined on the phone by supervising producer Cort Lane to discuss the Agents of S.M.A.S.H. teaming up with the God of Thunder, designing ice giants, and why Skaar and Thor have a lot in common.
