The previous night, he’d snuck up on Thor’s wife and shorn off her beautiful hair. To fix what he’d done, Loki rushes to the dwarves and tricks them into making gifts for the gods. Wanting to best their smith rivals, the dwarves make a set of golden treasures, including a hammer called Mjolnir. Scott A. Mellor traces the legend of Thor’s hammer. Lesson by Scott A.

Asma Khairul Azman (12 days ago)
I read a book titled The Gospel of Loki by Joanne M. Harris and remembered what happened so as I watched the video, I was narrating along with it. I gotta say, the way the book told that tale was pretty funny.

Andy Roth (15 days ago)
Different Mjöllnir, this one is from the Norse myths not the MCU.
Enceladus Eve (15 days ago)
If anybody thinking about Marvel's Thor.. it's Norse Mythology!
Andy Roth (15 days ago)
I agree, so sad that more knows of the MCU Thor then the Norse Thor.
seo hiba Ali (15 days ago)
Oh my God how can you call something which humans have created themselves Gods you fools,all of you! You pagans.There is only one God, how many prophets have he sent upon you just to tell you that?he has given you a big brain for a reason USE IT!!!
seo hiba Ali (11 days ago)
Well it was really good talking to you i hope you understood all i have said.I meant no disrespect and if i did iam very sorry. Peace out😀😀
seo hiba Ali (12 days ago)
I just edited my spelling mistakes
Andy Roth (12 days ago)
Well, I see you deleted your comment or something happen to it, but I was able to read it before it disappears. So our gods are fake cause we believe in nothing more than statues made up of rocks or come from ancient myths or legends these are just fairy tales. What about the bible; a man turns water into wine, every human came from Adam and Eve, Noah's flood, or any other stories from the Bible are myths too. There are no facts backing them up too. And your god doesn't protect his own people too, like when a gunman went into a church and murdered many Christians, where was your god at? Your god doesn't himself or his own people too, but our gods and goddesses never say that they will protect us or do anything for us. Our gods have their own life to live. Prophets, huh? If they were from any other religion you will claim that they are crazy, but since they are Christians or believe in your god than they are a prophet. So are there any good proof for those prophets or of your god outside of the bible?

Natasha Romonoff (20 days ago)
Wait,they said that lady sif was Thor's wife🙄🙄
Natasha Romonoff (20 days ago)
@Andy Roth Waoh that's nice. I didn't know cuz I know the Marval Thor not the Norse God Thor. Thanks for the information.😃
Andy Roth (20 days ago)
Yup, Sif is his wife, and he also has a mistress, Járnsaxa, too. And three kids too. Two sons, Móði and Magni (with Járnsaxa) and a daughter, Þrúðr (with Sif).
And why dose he look retarted?
Why is thor so short and stubby?
That guy (21 days ago)
This isn't really how thor got his hammer but it still is great
Andy Roth (21 days ago)
@That guy Hey, sorry man, but Thor is one of my gods that I worship and the MCU mocks the real Thor. Read Prose Edda, Poetic Edda, and some of the Icelandic Sagas, cause they have the real stories of Thor. And Hel is not Thor's sister, she is Loki's daughter. And Loki and Thor are not brothers, Odin just made an oath to Loki that he, Loki, would always be welcome at the table with Æsir. And last thing, Thor does have a wife, Sif. And he has two sons, Móði and Magni, and a daughter, Þrúðr, too.
That guy (21 days ago)
@Andy Roth whatever bursts your bubbles
Andy Roth (21 days ago)
@That guy Ok, that is just the MCU not the real myths, this story is the real Thor and his hammer, Mjöllnir.
That guy (21 days ago)
It used to be his sisters that was banished and then his dad gave it to him also thor doesn't have a wife
Andy Roth (21 days ago)
Yeah, it is, how else did he get Mjöllnir?

Steve Olivera (22 days ago)
Mjolnir never misses, never shatter and always return to thor, until hela breaks free
Andy Roth (22 days ago)
Yep, never misses, never shatter and always return to Thor, and Hel would never able to pick it up.

Derek Huynh (24 days ago)
If Mjornir would never break why did Thor’s sister break Mjolnir in avengers infinity war then? Sorry for spoiling infinity war if you did not watch it yet.
Andy Roth (24 days ago)
Well, that is a movie, this the real Norse myths. Two different things, dude. And really Hel is not Thor's sister, but Loki's daughter. Loki is not Thor's brother, but Odin made an oath on Loki that he will always be welcome at the table with Odin. And Thor is red hair and have a big beard.

I like marvel’s design for Loki, but it doesn’t portray the REAL Loki’s traits: scrawny, cowardly and pathetic. Also, WHY did Loki cut Sif’s hair off?! Doesn’t he understand that Thor will snap his skeleton body like a twig!!
Andy Roth (28 days ago)
LOL I don't think Loki thought it through
