No, he's not being inconsistent. Thor's powers are his, they're not granted by Mjolnir. He's capable - even if he doesn't realise/know it - of using them without Mjolnir, including after it's destroyed as he does in Thor: Ragnarok. In the first Thor movie, Odin takes Thor's powers away from him, and then places the enchantment on Mjolnir. The intention is ...

It is never said explicitly how exactly he survived, but in The Avengers it is hinted that he was saved by the Chitauri and their leader. A mysterious character by the name "The Other" tells Loki: The Other: You question us? You question HIM? He, who put the scepter in your hand, who gave you ancient knowledge and new purpose when you were cast out, ...

This isn't the first time Loki has been to Earth - he shows up to talk to Thor earlier in the film while Thor is incarcerated by SHIELD after trying to retrieve Mjolnir. He's definitely present as he attempts to pick up the hammer, so it's not just an illusion. As Loki was acting as the King of Asgard at that time, he used the Bifrost to make this trip; ...

Ok, I'll attempt an answer, based only on the movie (not the comics) and my small bit of knowledge about Norse mythology (paired with up-to-date Wiki-research). First of all the movie depicts the gods as being just a kind of powerful aliens (wandering on the same paths as Stargate and its farther-in-spirit Erich von Däniken already did). Indeed this isn't ...

Because they used Tesseract/Space stone's powers: Both rotate the handle of Tesseract case and teleported with blue light. Also we already know biforst was not in working condition during the film events: LOKI: Oh, you should thank me. With the Bifrost gone how much dark energy did the Allfather have to muster to ...

LOKI: Oh, you should thank me. With the Bifrost gone how much dark energy did the Allfather have to muster to conjure you here? Your precious Earth. The Avengers transcript via The Internet Movie Script Database While it's never explicitly explained in The Avengers how Thor returned to Earth, Loki implies that Odin used dark energy to send him back. This ...

The damage done to the Earth in Captain Marvel is literally nothing compared to destruction due to the fight between Thor and the Destroyer. Besides this, Captain Marvel takes places years before Thor and only a few people know about her. The damage done to the Earth during Thor was witnessed by many people and was the most recent one. So, he is just ...

Don't forget the next part of the conversation: THOR: My people want nothing but peace with your planet. NICK FURY: But you're not the only people out there, are you? And, you're not the only threat. The world's filling up with people who can't be matched, they can't be controlled. I've put in bold the part that's relevant - This can be argued ...

During the flashback, when Odin picks up baby Loki, Loki's blue skin turns to Asgardian skin. When he is grabbed by the frost giants, his skin reverted back to the original form, not only changing the color, but the texture as well (if you noticed, the frost giants have ice like skin, presumably from being in Jotunheim so long). Loki's size is actually ...

If I am not mistaken Odin changes Loki's appearance by touching him in Thor in a flashback scene. So Odin intentionally changed his look and then adopts him. His real look appears when he's attacked by a Frost Giant's freezing touch. There is no explanation of Loki's small size as compared to Frost Giants but in comics Laufey kept him hidden from his ...

At about 30 minutes into the film, Loki teleports to where the Chitauri leader is. At one point, he says "You question him, he who put the sceptre in your hand?" Here you can see the scene for yourself: And we know it's Thanos thanks to the post-credits scene: Hope that answers who gave ...

And yet, Coulson hands Thor over into Selvig's custody, with only an offhand order to one of his agents to "follow them," which never seems to be followed up on. What's going on there? They are indeed following him, that's why they saw his friends: www.youtube.com/watch?v=jcif323T_qo And right after that, the destroyer arrived. So they were checking ...

The assumption by most, of course, is that the first one he was referring to was Bruce Banner. However, while no further mention is made of Erik's other colleague in the final film, the original script reveals the identity to be Dr. Pym (presumably Hank Pym, the original Ant-Man). JANE (TO DARCY) Will you please stop talking about your iPod?! ...

From Wikipedia article about Thor (so basically the comic version) : Like all Asgardians, Thor is incredibly long-lived and relies upon periodic consumption of the Golden Apples of Idunn to sustain his extended lifespan, which to date has lasted many millennia. From MCU wiki page in a sidebar there are basic info about Thor (the film version). There ...

To answer in short: Thanos gave it to him, along with command of the Chitauri army. Thanos expected Loki to retrieve the Tesseract (which contained the Space Stone) and return it, along with the sceptre (Mind Stone) to him. This was essentially risking one Infinity Stone to end up with two. Loki likely didn't know what Thanos was actually after.

In Thor (2011), after Thor suggest going to Jotunheim (the home of the Frost Giants), Fandral and Sif speak out against it. Fandral says: This isn't like a journey to Earth, where you summon a little lightning and thunder, the mortals worship you as a god. So it seems like Thor has "played" the God of Thunder on Earth at least once. Watch the scene ...

I'd say it works, because Norse mythology isn't just based on stories that are said to have happened, but also on things that "will" happen. Just like Ragnarök: Someone came up with the idea and described Thor in advance. But in addition, I think there's even one instance in the comics where Thor is implied to be a title rather than just being a name.

Reading up on this Marvel Universe article about Cosmic Cubes tells us that there is possibly more than one cube in the universe itself. If we are to believe that the Cinematic Universe (Earth-199999 as it is known in the Marvel Multi-verse) has similar canon then we can assume the same to be true that there is more than one Tesseract a.k.a. Cosmic Cube a.k....

It's a fake, Odin thinking he had it already would stop him looking for it and prevent other from getting it. In Thor: Ragnarok, Hela tells Skurge it's a fake and knocks it over when she's revealing Odin's lies.

Okay, so in answering this I have to first throw out a disclaimer and say that there isn't really a "right answer". As the Marvel Cinematic Universe is still developing, all that I have right now are two theories. You can decide for yourself if you think they are any good. First, some background for anyone interested in the topic but unaware of what the ...

Volstagg was injured but alive. Frigga was stabbed through the heart and died immediately. Odin and Thor are both warriors who can recognize fatal wounds. And Odin holds his wife. He can clearly see that sure is dead as he holds her.

You're assuming that Heimdall is acting solely as a glorified doorman but he's so much more. Certainly he controls access to the Bifrost but his principal role is guardian of Asgard. This is because he can see and hear practically across the universe to detect potential threats to Asgard. Essentially, he's the main guardian and watchman for Asgard ...

Those "designs" you mentioned, are created when the "bifrost" or any bifrost related mechanism/tool is used for teleportation. The signature pattern is also noted when Thor arrives in Wakanda using the teleportation power of StormBreaker. In the instance in question, they used the space stone instead to teleport, hence the absence of the pattern. This is ...

Clearly Thor's lightning powers, his ability to fly/hover and his super strength/durability are not derived from Mjolnir, because he demonstrates them in both Infinity War and Endgame while wielding Stormbreaker. Stormbreaker was forged by a dwarf and not enchanted by Odin. In which case, it seems that Mjolnir must grant some other powers to whomever is ...

Nothing as such shown in MCU, but according to the Marvel storyline and stuff, Odin used to come to Earth very frequently due his addictions to alcohol and women. He used to brag and spill secrets when drunk, either to men at a bar or to women whilst bedding them, and the news kept on spreading and so on. I will add sources to my answer in an edit as soon ...

In Thor: The Dark World Odin and Loki have the following exchange: Odin: We are not gods! We're born, we live, we die, just as humans do. Loki: Give or take five thousand years. Now Loki isn't saying they LIVE for 5000 years. He's saying they live for some OTHER time, probably longer, with an average deviation of 5000 years. In Ragnarok Thor comments ...

As to the Marvel Universe, anything is possible. From the standpoint of Norse Mythology, the answer it's highly unlikely. Certainly the 9 realms represented 9 worlds, but the idea of a world being a planet in the modern sense isn't really accepted until Copernicus. (The word planet derives from the Ancient Greek planetes which means simply "wanderers". The ...

As far as the MCU is concerned it seems as though the Nine Realms does correspond to nine planets. Thor even drew a picture although he may have dumbed it down for us Midgardians: From a Wikia The Nine Realms were the nine main worlds of the Universe, interconnected through the world tree, Yggdrasil. For much more information and some extensive ...
