.. from a few replies..


Kurt Busiek has said that Thor can summon Mjolnir.
Kurt Busiek is not the boss of me.


"Thor 's hammer returns to his hand when he throws it, but he can't summon it to him." I thought that's what he did in FI#5 to incapacitate Angrir?

Yep, we screwed that up.


I guess Tom forgot about the times when Thor didn't have Blake as a crutch and the 60 second rule didn't apply. What happened then ? Oh, I guess he turned into nothing when he didn't touch the hammer.

So, his point about the film being a "mistake" is wrong anyway. Plus, He and Marvel always like to say that what happens in the films doesn't necessarily go with what happens in the comics, so he's wrong there too.

Anyway, it's just his opinion, lots of evidence proves otherwise.
However, I bet if it was about Thor not being bullet-proof he'd be quick to say that the few occasions he was shown to be less invunerable to them are canon and not mistakes.

"On occasion a creator had him call the hammer, but those instances were mistakes." Just randomly deciding that those who came before were in the wrong, huh? It's like Spider-man's marriage again. Stop cheapening this by disrespecting your own history.

No, this has been the way it's been since the beginning, with the occasional lapse. It's what the Marvel handbook will tell you, among other things. It's about respect for the past, not disrespect--being consistent with what's previously been established.


    Tom goes on to say:

    "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.)"

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

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

    Also the guy writes the Avengers cartoon.


Tom just says these things to wind up these boards.The old any publicity is good publicity rule.He knows how to work it.Month after month he keeps people talking about marvel.
