Can destroy Power Stone Mjolnir Thor's Hammer

Can Thor wield an Infinity Stone?

Probably not in the Marvel Cinematic Universe - at least not with your bare hands.

We don't know for sure, as we haven't seen an Asgardian attempt to pick up an infinity stone with bare hands - but the fact is that the stone is in a container whenever we've seen an Asgardian move an infinity stone - they must do not touch.

We saw this twice - as Thor and Loki at the end of The Avengers / Avengers Assemble return to Asgard with the Tesseract and Lady Sif and Volstagg at the end of Thor: The Dark World deliver the ether to The Collector.

We also see in the episode "Who You Really Are" The second Season of Agents of SHIELD that Lady Sif is about as strong as the Kree warrior she is fighting. In Watch Guardians of the Galaxy us that another Kree (Ronan the Prosecutor) can't hold the power stone long before he has to embed it in his warhammer. If Kree and Asgarden are about as powerful as each other, we can assume that Asgarden can hold the Infinity Stones for about as long as they can - which is not very long at all.

If someone can tell me how to downsize these images it would be great.

I think you need to resize the actual image files before uploading them e.g. For example, using the Preview on Mac OS X. (They appear to be shown at their original size or, if necessary, smaller to fit into the answer layout.)


@ PaulD.Waite: Since stackexchange uses imgur, you can use filename options to change the image size to a common size. (For example, putting "m" in front of each ".jpg" will resize each file to a common medium size.)


@DrRDizzle: See my comment on Paul just above on how to change image sizes. I did this for you


For the record, "s" and "l" do the same for small and large size changes.
