The Worthy (of Earth-616) are the serpents elite vanguard and agent of destruction. The mission is to spread fear across the Earth.


The eight superpowered beings who can wield the hammers belonging to the Worthy are granted immense magical power and are possessed by the evil spirits that are associated with the Serpent. Sin was the first one to lift the Hammer of Skadi and transform into Skadi who frees the Serpent from his magical prison. He then sends seven more hammers to Earth which are lifted by seven more people:

Every one of the Worthy helped the Serpent to spread fear around the Earth. The first Worthy to be dispossessed was the Thing, with the help of Franklin Richards and his reality alteration powers. After the final battle when the Worthy were defeated by the Mighty and the Serpent killed by Thor, their hammers were taken away from them by Odin. Nul was the only one who seemed to be still free in the Earth, for that, Hulk searched for the help of Doctor Strange.




  • Tarene was thought by many to one of the Worthy, because of her being a Hammer-wielder hero.


  • The way in which the arrival of the hammers on Earth is portrayed seems similar to a scene from Transformers Revenge of the Fallen, in which The Fallen and other Decepticons crash land on Earth in several different locations where several super-powered individuals picked them up.
  • The Worthy being each able to wield a specific hammer of their own is similar to Thor being worthy to wield Mjolnir, except that their handles are long while Thor's is short.
