Presumably having been known by many names in the past such as Hephaestus, Vulcan, and Sucellus.. what if the God of Hammers’ identity is revealed to be…



With the Celestials now revealed as the creators of the norn stones and given the current increasing prominence of the MCU, as much as I would loathe it, I wouldn’t be surprised.

No. If you click on the Doctor Stange image you’ll see who it is.

The image doesn't work for me, either, but the url text says Del Mundo variant of Eternals #1. So I looked that up and it appears to be Phastos holding Stormbreaker.

So I think the OP is saying that Phastos could be the god of hammers.

I'm pretty sure that's not Stormbreaker in the picture, besides Stormbreaker is destroyed and I doubt even Phastos could repair it.

I think the God of Hammers will be someone we already know or a brand new being but either way they will be a God of some sort. Phastos like all Eternals are not gods but long lived superpowered humans due to alien interference.

I'm willing to bet that Mjolnir is the God of Hammers! Mjolnir is it's own entity! I mean how can that not be an obvious theory is beyond me....

Smh

That idea may have some teeth though I do not think that will end up being the answer. At some point, hopefully now, the whole dysfunction of Asgardian power storyline will be resolved.

You’re right, it isn’t Stormbreaker. It’s Phastos’s hammer which is no Mjolnir but pretty impressive nonetheless..

I agree, Phastos is an Eternal and obviously shouldn’t qualify. But given Cates’ chaotic writing, it wouldn’t surprise me.

I'm tired of this reliance on Mjolnir already!
I miss the days when Thor was like...I don't need my hammer to knock your @$$ out! Lmao!

Aaron missed a great opportunity to showcase Thor's might without Mjolnir or any weapon at all!

He gave us a few quick blink and you'll miss feats here and there but the art never gave it the gravitas it deserved!

But yeah hopefully this puts and end to all this mess

I like Thor with Mjolnir. They belong together going back to the ancient myths. What I do not like is Thor being treated like a whiny pansy when he doesn't have it. We put up with that crap for years under Jason Aaron and enough is enough. I was elated when his run was over then sick when I saw he would continue when he was announced as the writer on Avengers. Somehow he makes Thor look even worse on that title.

I don't know why certain writers have to keep mucking with Mjolnir's origin. It wasn't broken, it didn't need to be fixed.

And 'fixing' Mjolnir's origin has basically unravelled the entire Thor mythos, and I would argue has led to the less epic stories, not more.

Thor and his mythological backdrop endured centuries, and that's why they were a good starting point for Marvel's Thor. It's pretty hubric for a writer to try rework a formula that served as the basis for an entire religion. This is like Gremlins 2 all over again...

Also, rather than making Thor less dependent on Mjolnir, reworking Mjolnir with some Dawn of Time, God of Hammers input is sure to make Thor more dependent on Mjolnir than ever.

Did Avengers #50 just tell us who the god of hammers is?

Ha- given Aarons Avengers run it would not surprise me. I think he was the last Avenger without a connection to some cosmic related power. Having re-read the issue I totally did a Casey at the bat swing and miss.

Just glanced through the issue and it still baffles me how Aaron has yet to be apprehended for his iconoclasm lol.

Although the short story by Ruocchio about a young King Arthur and Mjolnir was a surprise.

Ha-I had not thought of it but in terms of the comic book world it certainly fits. I am not sure why they added that second story. I do not think it has any relevance to the main arc but it was worthy of entry. Kind of reminded me of the old back-up stories in the old Avengers Classic mode. It was too short for any real analysis but it is interesting that Thor represents the old dying gods where Arthur represents the the coming of Christianity as the new way. The new still has some roots in the old. More likely it was just a way to fill out the last few pages. \:\-\)

But at least we got to see a young King Arthur try to lift Mjolnir. Never thought I would see that story happen. It was the only real highlight of that issue for me tbh. Interesting how Alex Power was able to lift Mjolnir but young Arthur wasn’t. Then again I doubt that old Power Pack story was canon.
