Among Asgard's arsenal, no weapon is more famous than the mighty Mjolnir, hammer of the God of Thunder, Thor.
But being such a powerful weapon, of course, not just anyone can use it. If the hammer deems you to be unworthy of it, then you won't even be able to get it off the ground. Supposedly, only Thor is able to lift the hammer.
However, that hasn't been the case for quite some time.
Tons of folks in the Marvel universe, both gods and mortals, have managed to pick up and use the hammer since Thor's introduction into the Marvel canon. Be they heroes or villains, as long as the hammer finds them worthy in character to pick it up, then the hammer doesn't care.
And that's really the only criteria for this list: as long as the character in question was able to so much as lift the hammer, then they are in the running. Gods, mortals, heroes or villains, these are the worthy warriors who wielded the powers of Thor.
17. Donald Blake
What better place to begin than at the beginning?
The first person to ever use the hammer of Thor in the comics was a doctor named Donald Blake. Blake was a disabled doctor who suddenly found himself, like many folks in the Marvel universe tend to, at the mercy of an invading force of aliens. He hid himself away in a cave, where he found the hammer of Thor. The hammer took the form of his walking stick when he was Blake, and changed into the hammer when Donald cracked the stick against a solid surface.
Of course, as you can imagine, this did not last long past Stan Lee and Jack Kirby's era. Specifically, it was the great Walt Simonson who revealed that the identity of Donald Blake was a fake, and that he had been Thor the entire time.
Like the 2011 movie, Odin cast him out for being vain, cruel, and far too blood hungry, removing his god powers and overwriting his personality with that of Dr. Blake.
