6 Reasons Batman Can Never Be Worthy Of Mjolnir

6 Reasons Batman Can Never Be Worthy Of Mjolnir

The Batman fans would instantly riot. Of course, with prep time, Batsy can do anything – is what they would say. But from a logical perspective, the Mjolnir would never let itself be wielded by the Caped Crusader.

There are way too many flaws in Bruce Wayne that make him unworthy of this Asgardian superweapon. We will explain each and every Batman flaw in detail. So before spamming our comments section with  “Batman Rules”, just give this list a gander.

People Cannot Idolize What They Fear So Batman Can Never Demand The True Respect A God Gets

Batman Rules By Fear
Batman – Symbol of Fear

A God leads by inspiration and hope while a tyrant leads via fear and violence. Every wielder of Mjolnir have had many unique personality traits. But the one common factor has been that all wielders have the power to lead by example. Thor instills hope in the heart of his allies. Captain America is a born leader who leads by example and righteousness.

Batman’s very gimmick makes him unworthy of the Mjolnir hammer. He does what he does to become a symbol of fear. The Dark Knight keeps Gotham in line through his sheer ideals of absolute, brutal justice. His methods don’t exactly make him a ‘good’ hero.

He Can Never Kill And That Makes Batman Unworthy Of Mjolnir

To be the hero, you have to make some hard choices. Taking tough decisions are part of being what it takes to lead. Mjolnir recognizes heroes who are willing to take that burden. There are reasons why certain heroes in Marvel Comics itself, despite being the best of the best, cannot lift Mjolnir. The only reason anyone is ever able to lift Mjolnir is because the weapon knows the guy or girl is ready to do whatever it takes to preserve innocent lives. Batman could have easily ended the lives of many DC villains like the Joker and the Riddler, making the world a better place. He didn’t because he was selfish. he did not want blood on his hands and that’s why countless lives have suffered.

Batman’s Failure To Look Past His Childhood Trauma Is Reason Enough For Mjolnir To Reject Him

To overcome tragedy is part of being a hero. Batman‘s very reason of his agenda for vengeance was the murder of his parents. While we are not saying Batman’s childhood trauma is mundane, it makes him weak if he holds onto it even after so many years. Mjolnir would instantly recognize that Batman’s heart can never let that pain go and deem him unworthy.

Batman Has Given In To Temptation Many A Times In The Past

The Batman

Because of his extensive array of adventures in the past, the Batman is not above some very human flaws. He may be a God to some Batman fans, but for the rest, he is a hero with so many chinks in his armor we are surprised he can still walk. In som stories, Batman has been successfully tempted into doing things he never should have done in the first place. His lack of trust in his own friends and his constant paranoia make him totally unworthy of Mjolnir, that generally looks for team-players as its host.

Deep Down, Batman Knows He’s A Bad Guy & The Mjolnir Would Never Let Itself Be Wielded By Him

Batman vs Superman
Deep down, he’s a bad guy

There’s a very famous quote from batman that still gets us:

I know how [Superman] thinks. Even more than the Kryptonite, he’s got one big weakness. Deep down, Clark’s essentially a good person……

……..And deep down, I’m not.”

This alone sums up why Mjolnir wield never come to Batman’s aid. Batman plays dirty and he’s proud of it.

Batman Has Become A God Before & He Abused That Power To Kingdom Come

Batman God of knowledge
Darkseid War

It’s not Batman’s first Godhood rodeo. In Darkseid War, Batman sat on the Mobius Chair and became the God of Knowledge. He had the answer to literally every question in the universe. How did he use that power? He condemned Joe Chill, the guy who killed his parents, to a lifetime of being the Gotham pariah. He then turned Gotham into a police state. Godhood does not suit Batman because Bruce Wayne and Godlike powers is a recipe for disaster.
