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!

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!
