The Time He Was Found Worthy by NautilusL2 The Time He Was Found Worthy by NautilusL2
It did not matter.
Loki hauls his unconscious brother onto his back and to safety. Picking up The Hammer was an afterthought.

* To those who feel the need to say that no one can carry Thor's hammer other than Thor. This image has been on Tumblr for months and months and I've already heard the arguments that he can and that he can't. I'm here to tell you he's carrying it so don't bother. Thanks!

I knew Loki still loved Thor deep down (even in the comics I heard that he even sacrifices his life for him.) I think it would make sense that he could carry Thor's hammer because what matters most is protecting his brother and he's carrying the hammer for Thor rather than for himself. I wonder why the other Avengers can't pick up Thor's hammer (other than Steve Rogers/Captain America I heard but that makes sense because he has a heart of gold) because you'd think they'd be as worthy as Thor.

Anyone can carry Thors Mjolnir! But they must be true of heart! If Loki has saved Thor and put Thor before Lokis needs/life/safety then he is worthy.

Very awesome! But there is one other person would can lift and probably even use his hammer, its Captain America/ Steve Rogers. :) So happy that Loki is worthy too.

the only reason loki went nuts is because thor had it all the throne the hammer the friends and odin loki just snapped and who could blame him like hanging on that staff before he fell into the abyss he already did that mentally if they would have givin him something in the movie than yeah he woulda been fine i mean just looking at this pic makes me think why could'nt he have had an equeal weapon to thors

I agree with you there (Pardon me for butting in), but I also think that another reason he went slightly crazy is because he just wants to be loved. Think about it: He was abandoned as a baby by his own father and people, and grew up knowing that he would never really amount to anything in Odin's eyes. His brother was loved and popular, and he was just 'the adopted one'. So when Thor was banished, he saw a chance to be recognised as someone powerful, and to be loved by more than just Frigga. I think that's why he 'tried to save Odin's life' by killing Laufey. Then when Frigga was killed (Thor 2), he went even crazier, and decided to give getting the throne one last shot, and this time it worked (as far as we can tell). 
That doesn't make much sense, but human minds are complicated, so i can only imagine that a deity's mind would be even more so. 

(BTW this is a beautiful painting, I love it to shreds!)

Well, he may not has a physical weapon like Thor has, but his mind (I think) is an increadible weapon and totally stronger than Thor's glorified wand (it shoots power out of it, helps him fly, sounds like a wand to me tbh.) It is a shame that the Asgard society and ours value physical strength over mental, but hey, it's changing slowly but surely! I am glad you like the picture and found it thought provoking!

If I may.

It was too late when Mjolnir has crashed with Tesseract, sending it flying from Loki's strong hands; ultimately freeing his mind from its grasp. He saw everything, he simply couldn't control his body when an old relic was connected with his consciousness he was a prisoner of his own body, locked in the depth of his being. Another blink and he was in control again- the ruins, destruction and his brother on the ground becoming painfully apparent. As Thor has thrown his weapon to disarm Loki, the ray from Tesseract has pierced his heart. Loki dropped to his knees, praying to anything that would listen for his brother's life. Thor was not breathing, his skin felt cold to the touch.  Panicking, he lifted his brother onto his shoulders, carrying him away from the battle. Picking up Mjolnir was an afterthought. His king would not be buried without his weapon; he, Loki of Asgard would see to it even if it was the last thing he would do.

He can carry it if he is worthy of the power of Thor... He's rescuing Thor, being selfless and brave, so I'd say it makes sense that he's temporarily worthy. When Thor is better and Loki stops worrying about him, maybe the hammer will be too heavy again ;)
That aside, it's a really powerful picture. Bravo!

Thank you so much!! yes, I think that as soon as Thor wakes up and Loki realizes the hammer is in his hand, it will drop immediately and be too heavy to pick up. but Thor will know, there will be witnesses to Loki being virtuous and true.

Outside of mama (who worked more in the shadows than in the open) Thor seems to be the only one who can really see Loki for who he is. Sometimes, the tricks blind him or make him doubt, but then there's always something reminding him of where his brother is in this strange mind. I think in a way Thor feels responsible, because he didn't see it sooner when Loki began his descent, so he always gives him a chance to do the right thing.
And there's that video on youtube of Hiddles throwing Mj÷lnir to Thor (and then he goes RAAAAAHRRR!) so it could kind of fit with that theory.
But that's just my opinion and I'm veering off topic which is how great this illustration is ;)
