    hehe There's a part just before he destroys Durok where Thor says, "I've become too dependent on Mjolnir" .
      I can see as a warrior where having a weapon like Mjolnir would be fantastic.
      JMS had JUST started to explore Thor's powers he got from Gaea before he left Marvel so yeah sometimes I wonder why Thor really needs Mjolnir, but, they were made for each other basically.

Yes, I'm all aware of how the story came to evolve. However, I can't see it making much sense or being a great move for the character. Why having 40+ years of Thor praising Mjolnir? Why would Odin give such a tool to his son? Would he encourage him leaning on his hammer if he always could do have do what we tought the hammer was responsible for? Mjolnir was a cool weapon, but with the new perspective it's largely redundant.
