Captain America: Super Soldier Serum Theory Has Major Tie To Chris Hemsworth’s Thor

Captain America Chris Hemsworth Thor

A new Captain America fan theory outlines how super-soldier serum could have major ties to Chris Hemsworth’s Thor.

Few fans need to be reminded that Steve Rogers was transformed into Captain America by the super-soldier serum developed by Dr. Abraham Erskine. Of course, as Erskine explained in the first Captain America film, the serum required more than just physical attributes to work on someone and Steve Rogers proved to be honorable enough to receive the powers bestowed by the procedure.

However, Reddit user believes there could be a specific reason why the serum requires an honorable character that is connected to Chris Hemsworth’s Thor. As fans may remember, Odin once banished Chris Hemsworth’s Thor to Earth for his reckless behavior and essentially cast a spell on Mjolnir to ensure the God of Thunder could only wield the hammer once he proved himself worthy.

The fan theory suggests Dr. Erskine could have discovered the same spell while working for Red Skull, who is known for being obsessed with mystical and mythical objects. Therefore, the Reddit user believes Dr. Erskine could have enchanted the super-soldier serum with the same spell used on the hammer belonging to Chris Hemsworth’s Thor to ensure an individual like Red Skull could not use it and only someone worthy, like Steve Rogers/Captain America, could be granted powers.
