    Tom goes on to say:



    Quote:
    "On occasion a creator had him call the hammer, but those instances were mistakes. Especially given the parameter that he needed to touch the hammer once every 60 seconds in order to remain in his godly form on Earth, the idea that he could just summon it to him in those circumstances doesn't make any sense. Typically, those mistakes were people misunderstanding the mechanics of how the enchantment on the hammer worked. (The film also gets this wrong at a crucial moment.)"



    Quote:
    Writers who have had Thor summon or mentally control the flight of his hammer (off the top of my head):



    Quote:
    Dan Jurgens (who Tom edited)
    Stan Lee
    Dough Moench
    Roy Thomas
    Warren Ellis
    Allan Zelenetz
    William-Messner Loebs
    Tom DeFalco
    Jim Starlin

Matt Fraction as well in Fear Itself. I do not recall if Walt did it or not.

Not sure if Tom's statement makes much sense at all honestly. The 60 second rule has come up before and at times I remember it was a problem when he threw it and then was in a fight and then was unable to catch it when it came back. Like he got leveled as it was coming back for him. Not sure where he gets some of this. It seems a natural extension that he would and has done something like this before.
