    Not sure that I agree he is anti-Thor. I think he is incorrect about a great number of things about the character but I do not think he has some deep seeded dislike of the character at all.

If Tom would have said Mjolnir can easily destroy Eternity, nobody would ever have dare call him a hater even if Mjolnir doing that would be every bit as fallacious. I have come to the conclusion that a hater is someone who isn't a blind fanatic on steroid. Neutrality is a wasted concept.

Big difference with Tom saying "Thor can not summon mjolnir" (despite numerous showings to the contrary, including by Stan Lee, the guy who created Thor and Walt Simonson, whom many say is the definitive Thor writer) and your extreme example "if he said Mjolnir can easily destroy Eternity"...there is a middle and sane ground, you know.  No need to exaggerate just to prove your point.
Anyway, Tom's original statement (Thor can't summon Mjolnir) is akin to a DC editor saying "Magic is an auto-win against Superman"...there are several showings to the contrary, and it will still rub Supes' fanbase the wrong way...Now, how do you feel Dan Jurgens (guy who wrote Thor and Supes) saying he pick Thor (and he has, really) winning over Supes because of magic?
