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 fingerprints, worthiness be damned.

New!Thor Addresses Those Damn Feminists Who Ruin Everything

Snortblat would be so proud.

Well, okay, no—she addresses jerks like Absorbing Man here who think feminists are actively trying to make his life worse simply by wanting more out of their entertainment than just the same three or four white dudes punching stuff together in every single comic book.
