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.

*whistles*

Sometimes people do things because they know it will get a rise out of others. I believe that Tom knows that Thor fans have a rep for bitching about everything. You have decades of evidence to the contrary including the writers who have defined the character. They aren't wrong. Ignore Brevoort and he'll go away.

These guys probably sit in the office bored like watch me screw with thor fans..Superman would kick his butt. The hulk can lift the hammer and beat his face with it.
Learn to ignore these people

The marvel handbook and even the Marvel site for years said "Mjolnir responds to Thor like it's alive" Brevort is busting your collective balls
