Iron Man Plans to Forge Thor a New Mjolnir

The following article contains spoilers for Iron Man #25, now on sale from Marvel.

In a story set in the past, Thor is coping with the recent loss of his enchanted hammer Mjolnir, but a backup feature in the latest issue of Iron Man now reveals Tony Stark knows how to make Thor a new one.

Iron Man #25 features the flashback “Daddy’s Boys” by the upcoming I Am Iron Man creative team Murewa Ayodele and Dotun Akande, where the Golden Avenger — albeit now adorned in a colorless new suit of stealth armor — ventures into the frozen wastes of Jotenheim in search of the missing Thor. Tony locates the now-hammerless Thor easily enough, but the Thunder God is lamenting the loss of his once-faithful Mjolnir. Tony, however, offers to conjure up a technologically-based — and somewhat unethical — version of his iconic weapon.

“We might have to melt Wolverine down to get his adamantium,” Tony reckons. “But with ‘borrowed’ Wakandan vibranium and some of the crazy stuff Reed has in his lab that he doesn’t know I know about, I’ll have you soaring through the cosmos again and smiting evil in the face of lightning.”

“Well, electricity,” Tony concedes.

Thor, however, turns down Tony’s offer, telling him, “Nothing you can fashion can ever … feel the same.”

In the 10-page backup, Tony goes searching for his Avengers teammate, believing him to be held captive, but instead finds Thor merely hiding out — and moping around — in the land of the Frost Giants. The feature is an advance peek of I Am Iron Man, an upcoming, ongoing series set to debut in 2023. The new series, set throughout various eras in Iron Man’s six-decade history, will run alongside the pending relaunch of Invincible Iron Man by Gerry Duggan and Juan Frigeri, set to debut in December.

The main story in issue #25 — the last in the series — by Christopher Cantwell, Angel Unzueta, Frank D’Armata and VC’s Joe Caramagna, serves as the conclusion to Cantwell’s run on the title. The issue also features a preview of Duggan and Frigeri’s Invincible Iron Man.

“Daddy’s Boys” takes place during Thor’s days when he was simply known as Odinson, after losing his status as being worthy enough to wield Mjolnir. The era unfolded beginning in Marvel’s Original Sin event in 2014, with Jane Foster later taking on the role of Thor, with Mjolnir serving as her weapon. Thor recently regained his ability to wield the enchanted hammer, now possessed with the essence of Thor’s father Odin.
