    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.

Well in a small way yeah it is redundant, but when Thor was young he had to become strong not just physically, but, MENTALLY.
  If Thor or even BRB as shown recently in Godhunter, become too Selfish they loose the use of Mjolnir or Stormbreaker.
  Both Weapons in some ways keep the user from becoming so self involved that they can't protect what they were meant to protect.
