Prince Harry Channeled a Marvel Superhero While Visiting Veterans in Denmark

As you may or may not know, Prince Harry is paying Denmark a royal visit this week, and we've already gotten some pretty adorable pictures out of it (seriously, the video of him bonding with a baby is the sweetest thing). Thursday marked day two of the excursion, and Prince Harry was hard at work ... channeling the comic book superhero Thor.

The prince met the Invictus Game's Team Denmark, and while doing so, he picked up a hammer that could be an exact replica of Thor's. Prince Harry created the Invictus Games in 2014 as an international sports tournament comprised of injured or armed services personnel and veterans, so needless to say, Team Denmark was pretty happy to see him.

During the same visit, Prince Harry was able to get in on the athletic action himself momentarily when a ball came hurling toward him as he watched a group of veterans playing "rolling floor ball," a game devised by the veterans and center's staff.

Nice save, Prince Harry. In what was certainly a busy day, the royal also went to the Lagkagehuset bakery, where he gave a speech about the effects of social media on young people's mental health, though this is hardly the first time he's spoken out about the topic.

"I'm the last person to say ban it but people are suffering from mental fatigue and getting burnt out. We all need to talk to each other more," he said.

We're with you there, Harry.
