The theory of worthiness surrounding Thor's Hammer Mjolnir is arguably one of the most debatable topics in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. As Odin's spell implies, only the worthy could lift the Enchanted Hammer. This brings us to a scene in the Avengers: The Age of Ultron where none of the Avengers could even budge the hammer from its place except for Steve Rogers. It was this scene that proved why Mjolnir was uniquely exclusive to Thor. 

As the events progressed, we came across one of the most iconic scenes in the movie, where Vision casually lifts Thor's hammer and hands it to him, leaving everyone confused. This sparks discussion among fans regarding why he was able to do so. 

Vision lifting the Hammer was a clear indication that the Avengers could trust him, a point later highlighted by Thor during a conversation with Steve Rogers and Tony Stark. Till now, numerous fan theories speculate on Vision’s worthiness, while some present alternative perspectives. 

Some theories suggest that Vision was an android and could lift the Hammer the same way an elevator could. It can be assumed that since Vision was a machine, he couldn't be categorized as worthy or unworthy. However, if we dig deeper into the events after Vision sprang into existence, there is not one but several instances where he proves why he was capable of wielding the hammer. 

Why is Vision Worthy of wielding Mjolnir?

As seen in the Age of Ultron, a newborn Vision was created after Stark uploaded the remains of his AI J.A.R.V.I.S. into the vibranium body that also held the power of the mind stone. Vision throughout his existence has always been willing to sacrifice himself for the greater good. He not only saves Wanda from the plummeting chunk of Sokovia but also mentions his thoughts on mankind during his final conversation with Ultron, where he believes that there is more to humanity than their failures. 

Fast forward to Captain America: Civil War, when the great heroes of the universe were fighting over the Sokovian Accords, it was Vision who could thoughtfully articulate the pros and the cons of the pact. His intellectual abilities help him reason with justification and consider all possible consequences of a situation. 

In the Avengers: Infinity War, Vision’s existence is again threatened by Thanos, who would do anything to get all the six infinity stones. However, for once Vision didn't hesitate to give up on his life if that meant destroying the mind stone, the source of his power.

Later on in Wandavision, we again see Vision reaching out to help the people of Westview knowing he was disintegrating, the more he tried to force himself out of the Hex created by Wanda. This shows he was willing to let go of his new life yet again and the world where he and Wanda could finally be together.

Vision rose to be one of the most powerful forces for the good only to sacrifice himself for the good of the universe. He kept on choosing the side of life no matter what consequences it may have on him. And it was the virtue of these qualities that made him a worthy contender for the Enchanted Mjolnir. Nevertheless, Vision continues to be a fan favorite and is so far one of the best characters Marvel has given to us.
