However, prior to Star-Lord’s helmet, the most recent Marvel Mission was to build Thor’s Stormbreaker, which you probably recognize from the Marvel Cinematic Universe: it appeared in Avengers: Infinity War (2018).

In the movie, Stormbreaker’s handle is made from Groot’s arm, and its blade is made from Uru, an enchanted metal that can only be forged in the heart of a star.
After forging the weapon, Thor (Chris Hemsworth) went on a glorious mission to construct the weapon (although when he arrived on Earth with Groot and the weapon, he kind of messed up his execution… he should have gone for the head).
As you probably guessed, Stormbreaker is something of an alternate version of Mjolnir. And just like that enchanted hammer, not just anyone can pick it up, you have to be worthy, like Thor, Steve Rogers (Chris Evans), or Vision (Paul Bettany).
Luckily, Marvel found some worthy agents to make Stormbreaker for the last mission (and you can see the winning selections here).
These fans proved worthy to wield Thor's Stormbreaker ⚡ Take a look at their DIY creations for the latest #MarvelMission!
