Subj: After 40+ years of reading Thor... you'd think we'd have seen him doing these exotic powers w/out Mjolnir by now, but we don't...

Previous Post

The Powers are Thor's. It is Thor that empowers Mjolnir not opposite. Some of the enchantments are Mjolnirs, part of the Hammer. But we know some of those powers are duplicates, i.e- Weather control. But it was Odin who infused Thor's power within the Hammer to teach Thor a lesson in Humility.

Thus it is that your opinion is simply wrong. It is Thor who empowers Mjolnir not vice versa.

As other have quoted.....

"Whosoever holds this hammer, if he be worthy, shall possess the Power of THOR"

Not the power of Mjolnir.

and it's because those exotic powers are in Mjolnir.

All these years we'd have seen him doing them w/o Mjolnir if he was capable of doing them without Mjolnir. But he NEVER does.

Plus, w/o Mjolnir, he can't power up. Bill couldn't power up during the invasion of Asgard by the Skrulls until Thor tossed Mjolnir at him. If it was Thor's power, if it was Bill's power, then it would be in them and they wouldn't need to power up, they'd just summon it all on their own. But they can't... unless they have Mjolnir/Stormbreaker.

Many of the exotic powers ARE in Mjolnir.
It's also the reason why we NEVER see Bill doing them w/o Stormbreaker, either.

The power may be theirs to command due to their worthiness, but they cannot get to it on their own, they MUST have Mjolnir/Stormbreaker in hand to get at it.
