We're not that far away from a major shift for Marvel's Thor. A passing of the mantle (and the hammer that goes with it). So I have to ask, what exactly does Thor do that makes him unworthy to lift Mjolnir? [Spoilers below.]

Thor God of Thunder has had an outstanding run under the guidance of writer Jason Aaron and artist Esad Ribic. He's pulled off some truly spectacular feats, and lived up to his title. They've even had him cross paths with a younger version of himself, to contrast how much he's matured in the last 1200 years or so.

Once upon a time, Young!Thor was not yet worthy of Mjolnir, and bore Jarnbjorn instead, an axe that ultimately had the strength to topple Gods and Celestials alike. He was brash, headstrong, selfish, and egotistical. He outgrew these things.

He's found generosity. Kindness. Compassion. Humility. True courage. So yeah... what the Hel is he going to do to lose his Worth?

To thicken the plot, new artwork has revealed a bit of a blow to Thor Odinson— namely, the loss of his left arm. This isn't a complete surprise, AllFather!Thor in the distant future has outfitted his own missing limb with that of the Detroyer.

This will likely be related to the loss of his worth. I mean, it can scarcely be a coincidence.
