I'm in the school that doesn't like to see Thor's hammer reduced to a big uru batarang so I'm always going to inherently be against the idea of giving Thor powers that Mjolnir already has and grant. However, what I would change, is that Mjolnir would be Thor's birthright and his alone. No weird and ambiguous clause about who can or not lift it. Only Thor can for real.

Another reason why I wouldn't give Thor any new inherent powers or less limitations over them is because the crushing majority of his opponents or "rivals" at Marvel would suffer from it unless they too get upgrades. If Thor get beaten it's not a problem of him not being powerful enough already, it's a problem of scenario.

Finally, I'd make it extremely clear what the character can and can't do. No more plot device powers that comes out of nowhere only to never appear again. This is something I'd do with all characters who suffer from this.

Thor is already a superior asgardian because of his birthright. He isn't a class-30 character that I know of so there is no need to emphasize even more the ridiculously obvious superiority Thor already has over the other gods save Odin.

But that's me...

(and this is arguing semantics) Mjolnir is only a conduit for Thor's weather powers, a "focus" object. Sort of like a wand or wizard staff.
Totally agree with Mjolnir being Thor's exclusively (no more "if he be worthy" nonsense)
I also agree that Thor is second to Odin in power. Thor is Class 100 strength normally and Class 100+ with his belt or warrior madness (which makes him stronger than Odin physically). Powers revolving around anything not strength, Odin surpasses Thor, hence Thor's being second.
