A few days ago, we shared with you the fantastic NYCC creation of cosplayer Thomas DePetrillo who blew everyone’s socks off with his massive Hulkbuster costume.

So should his fellow Avengers be far behind? Well, it looks like a real-life Thor has also landed on Earth. Or at least, an engineer has built a very cool replica of the Mjolnir.

This hammer is so cool that only one person can lift it – exactly like Thor’s mythical weapon of choice.

According to mythology, only he who is worthy can lift the Mjolnir.

YouTuber Sufficiently Advanced used his scientific knowledge to create a hammer that works that way. His version is made of capacitive touch sensor, a microwave oven transformer electro magnet, some batteries, and – the main secret – a fingerprint scanner that only turns on or off when he touches it. Quite sneaky, huh?

Random people on the street were challenged to lift the hammer.

He eventually took the Mjolnir to the streets, challenging random strangers to lift it and see if they are worthy. As you can easily guess, every attempt proved futile and those who witnessed this guy lift the hammer were extremely impressed.

It is noteworthy – and kinda funny – that the last guy was able to lift the Mjolnir though. We’re guessing it’s either he’s so smart or that the battery just ran out during his turn.

The video has become a smash hit on the web it gained over 4 million views in just a span of 5 days. We have a feeling the numbers will continue to soar as more websites are starting to feature and praise this unique creation.

If you’ve been to a comic convention before, you know that wearing superhero costumes is pretty much the norm during such events. But if you’ve attended the recently-concluded New York Comic Con, you’ll know one particular cosplay stood out from the rest.

The “Iron Man Hulkbuster” cosplay by Thomas DePetrillo of Extreme Costumes totally grabbed everyone’s eyes because of its massive size and impressive details. It’s really hard to miss this guy given the fact that the costume stands over 9 feet tall. You’ll see it even if you’re standing several meters away from where he stands.

Worn by Iron Man on Avengers: Age of Ultron, the Hulkbuster cosplay quickly became a crowd favorite at NYCC.

When talking about sumo wrestlers, we often describe them as huge, heavyset, and strong men with a bodybuild similar to a bear's. However, Czech sumo wrestler Takanoyama Shuntaro defies all sumo wrestling norms - his arms and legs are not as thick as logs and his chest does not look like a wall. In fact, he is taut and well-built.

Born as Pavel Bojar, Shuntaro claims that he is the first Czech man to join the ranks of sumo wrestlers who are primarily of Japanese descent. According to him, what he lacks in body mass is made up for by his superior skills in throwing opponents out of the ring instead of tackling them.

You never know what you might see when walking down a street. With just a few minutes of strolling around the streets of your neighborhood, you can see different kinds of people from all walks of life - those who are in a hurry, power-walking their way to their offices or to the next appointment of the day; those hanging out to observe other people, or the others who use the sidewalks as their performing stage. Indeed, the next big thing in the music industry could be standing there on a sidewalk singing his heart out without you knowing.

Or he may be plucking his guitar strings like a boss, like the amazing street guitarist filmed by a passerby in this video:
