Only Whosoever Carries Its Owner’s Fingerprints Can Lift This Real Life Mjölnir

Tony Stark was right!

Tony Stark’s whining during the post-party scene in Age of Ultron has been vindicated: Here is a version of Mjölnir that can only be lifted by the person carrying its owner’s (Allen Pan) fingerprints, worthiness be damned. Or by anyone who figures out a way around the giant electromagnets inside the hammer’s casing.

In probably the only not-terrible “prank” video on the Internet, you can watch a bunch of people try to lift the hammer (and cringe while trying to telepathically convince them to lift with their legs instead of their backs) before being shown how it’s really done.


… and also a fingerprint scanner on the handle, though one quick thinker does eventually realize that magnets are to blame and comes up with another creative solution.
