Why didn't Thor make the second "snap" in Avengers: Endgame?

An interesting theory explains the reason why Thor was prevented from making the second “snap” in the movie Avengers: Endgame.

Thor He is one of the most powerful heroes of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, he was able to defeat Thanos with all the Infinity Stones if he had aimed for the head. But the blow failed and the “mad titan” managed to complete his plan and annihilate half the life of the Universe. In most of the Avengers: Endgame We see him very deteriorated, since he spent 5 years regretting having failed.

There is a moment in the movie when the heroes gather all the Infinity Stones that must decide who will make the second “snap”. Humans are out of the question, as they could die in the process, even Captain America decides that someone else should do it. Thor would be a fairly acceptable candidate, but due to his status, they decide to make it Hulk whoever does it. Although successful, this leaves him deep wounds.

A new theory explains why the God of Thunder was not the ideal candidate.

The effects of the “snap” come from the mind and not from the power of the Infinity Stones, and while Thor might be one of the most powerful Avengers, he was simply not in the right frame of mind to do so. Although, if it weren't for Bruce Banner and the Hulk striking the balance between the genius scientist and the huge green monster, he might have been the only one capable of surviving.

Throughout the movie, Thor was unstable, going through emotional crises from time to time as he continued to deal with his catastrophic failure to stop Thanos in Infinity War. Knowing a thing or two about mental health issues, having suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder after the Battle of New York, Tony didn't want Thor to ruin what might be his only chance to use the Infinity Stones. This is also why Tony gave the Hulk a final reminder before the latter put on the gauntlet saying: “remember, bring everyone that Thanos made disappear five years ago, we just bring them back now, today . Don't change anything in the last five years ”.

Who knows what might have turned out differently if Thor had been the one to undo Thanos's initial “snap”, as his pride could have imposed itself which could have compromised the ultimate goal of Avengers: Endgame. That it was always about returning lives to how they were before.
