The Wanda Scene In Endgame That Has MCU Fans Worried For Mjolnir And Stormbreaker

It's the question that plagues superhero movie fans in the advent of the Marvel Cinematic Universe: Who's the most powerful Avenger? One could certainly make cases for plenty of candidates. Before he bit the dust in "Avengers: Endgame," Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) had plenty of firepower and technology at his disposal that allowed him to stand a chance against Thanos (Josh Brolin) and his forces. However, it's hard to understate the power of magic in this universe, so Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) and Wong (Benedict Wong) could definitely have a claim to the title. But when looking in terms of sheer might, it's hard to find an argument that would counteract the theory of Wanda (Elizabeth Olsen) being the strongest of the bunch.

Not only did she beat up Thanos in "Endgame," but she also proved she could bend the very fabric of reality in "WandaVision." She may still need to harness her power, but at total capacity, no one really stands a chance against her. There's even evidence she could take on Thor (Chris Hemsworth), as she has one significant advantage over the Asgardian.

Wanda could likely destroy Mjolnir and Stormbreaker

During the final battle of "Endgame" with the Avengers versus Thanos and his army, Wanda gets one of the most standout moments as she tries to 1-v-1 with Thanos. The astonishing aspect is that Wanda actually manages to hold her own against the Mad Titan. At one point, she gains the upper hand, requiring Thanos to call in reinforcements, which, if he hadn't done, Wanda probably could've killed him right then and there. 

But there's one aspect of their fight worth giving a second look at. Redditor u/megamindwriter points out, "Wanda broke Thanos' sword which is made from Uru, meaning she can also destroy Thor's hammer." Uru is a fictional metal that hails from Asgard, and it's ultimately what's used to create Mjolnir. When Thor goes to get another weapon from Eitri (Peter Dinklage), he uses Uru once again to forge Stormbreaker. 

It's only natural, seeing how Hela (Cate Blanchett) was also able to destroy Mjolnir with her bare hands. However, other users aren't quite so sure if Wanda's that powerful. Redditor u/TheAmazingSpider-Fan writes, "The same material can have different quality, so even if she can damage Uru, that doesn't necessarily mean that she can break Mjolnir/Stormbreaker." Besides, she would still have to go up against Thor himself, and as audiences learned in "Thor: Ragnarok," the hammer is merely a conduit for Thor's power; he's plenty sizable on his own.
