Subj: No, that's fan speculation.

Reply Subj: Let me get this straight...Thor can't fix his hammer because he killed a royal family member with it???

I won't get into how stupid that is...But my what i want to know is, was this said in the comic, or is this fan speculation. If it was said in the comic, its a bit suspect to say the least. I mean thor killed the Midgard (as Loki's child he is Asgardian royalty) Serpent with his hammer and it wasn't tainted. BRB killed Fenris (royalty due to being Loki's son) with his and his hammer is just peachy.

There is absolutely nothing in the comic itself to suggest Thor's inability to repair Mjolnir is because it's tainted, or because he used it to kill a family member. This theory has been floating around, but there is nothing to substantiate it.

The (lame) explanation given is that this is the first time Mjolnir was broken with pure force, not magic (which is actually false, Mjolnir was broken by force during Ragnarok). Bor was supposedly 'harder than Mjolnir', that's why it broke.

So, anyways, he can't repair it like he has in the past. He needs a powerful sorcerer (likely Karnilla) to assist him.
