Making caramel and candy apples is never more popular than it is this time of year. But if you enjoy making them, you don’t always need to make them the traditional way.
For one example, instead of making normal candy apples you could make some Thor: Ragnarok-themed candy apples that look like little replicas of the mighty Thor’s hammer, Mjolnir. Marvel Entertainment has released a video showing you how to make these little treats.

Marvel stirred up the comic book world last summer when it was revealed that Thor the Odinson would no longer be worthy of wielding the magical weapon Mjolnir and that a woman would take his place as The Mighty Thor. Fans have since been wondering just who the true identity is of this mysterious new Thor ever since. Well, that long wait is finally coming to an end as Marvel has revealed to the New York Times just who was worthy.
If you’d rather wait to find out for yourselves in Thor #8, which hits shelves tomorrow, TURN BACK NOW as this news is too big to not talk about immediately.
A group of enthusiastic pranksters going by the name of Trollstation out of the UK decided to find out just who thinks they are worthy of the power of the Mighty Thor. Just in time for this week’s U.S. release of Avengers: Age of Ultron (the film has been out a week in the UK), the prank basically entailed someone using some heavy duty adhesive to glue a replica of Mjolnir, the famed weapon of Thor, to some concrete in a public square. Passersby then tried to determine their worthiness by attempting to lift the “magic” hammer.
The concept is based on the famous inscription from the Marvel comics stating “Whosoever holds this hammer, if he be worthy, shall possess the power of Thor.” Of course the hammer now mentions that if he OR she be worthy, and in the video, plenty of women gave the challenge a try themselves.
From the looks of it, we puny mortals should probably just leave the heavy lifting to the Asgardians. That and apparently wearing a jacket seems to have an effect on our worthiness. Check out the video here below.
A little over a year ago, astrophysicist and host of Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey, Neil deGrasse Tyson, said on the Twitter that if Thor’s fabled hammer Mjolnir were made of neutron star matter, the hammer would weigh as much as 300 BILLION elephants. No problem, sir. Get me two and let’s get to the curls.
It didn’t take long for a correction to deGrasse Tyson’s tweet, letting him know that the hammer was actually molded inside of a star, not made from it, and that it’s actually made of the metal Uru and, according to Marvel, weighs in at about 42 pounds.
42 pounds is nowhere near as amusing as the thought of 300 billion elephants, though, so what if Mjolnir really were made from a star? A new video has been made digging into not only how unbelievably heavy the hammer would be, but also how devastatingly deadly it would be. You can watch the video below!
Mjolnir, the hammer of Thor, is easily one of the most powerful weapons in the Marvel Universe and one of the most coveted, along with maybe the Silver Surfers’ surfboard and maybe Jarvis (come on having your own butler, please”¦). So with the Thor out in theaters I started to consider what I’d do if I had that badass hammer. Now, I’m a caring guy of course so I’d wanna bring the rain to the parched and crush some evil here and there, but there are also those guilty pleasure sorts of things that would just be fun.
There’s the five things I’m thinking of right about now. So head down the rainbow bridge with me and let’s talk five things that would just be fun to do with that hammer of Thor.
