    if Mjolnir is exclusively Thor's, then as Oeming wrote in Disassembled, the hammer should be a tool and should be considered as the "focus" object for his innate weather powers.

    If others will be able to lift it as per the enchantment, then it should "grant" the powers of Thor and his weather control.
    So, Damned if you do and damned if you don't.

Among many things, I have a hard time seeing Thor fly without his hammer. For me it would feel like Superman now teleporting just because. Also, pulling stuff like the "God blast" end up being suspect when the only "god" who ever displayed it ever was Thor. If you remove the need of the hammer to do it, it's even worse since you also remove the only apparent explanation for other "gods" never being capable of showing their "god blast" or rather their "Oeming blast". Of course, that's on top of cheapening the hammer's legacy by reducing it to a lot less than it used to be and that I came to call the uru batarang. Anyway, again, to each their own. It's just that I truly fail to see the point of what many propose.
