Son of the mighty Norse god Thor, Magni is believed to be the one god stronger than his father. He is so strong that he is the only one besides Thor to be able to lift Mjollnir, Thor’s mighty hammer. When Thor lies trapped under the colossal leg of the giant Jotun whom he had just slain, the gods sends for his three-year-old son Magni to say his farewells. Seeing his father barely alive, Magni effortlessly lifted the giant’s leg and saves his father. Magni’s brother Modi inherited Thor’s battle wrath. So, while warriors prayed to Magni to give them strength in battle, they also prayed to Modi to enhance their rage and quell their fear.
