Reply Subj: What if the whisper wasnt said to Thor?

Interesting theory. I'm going to hold on to my favorite whisper theory with your twist: Fury said to Mjolnir: "Thor is late on his child support payments to Jane Foster."
That said, I hope they don't go too far w/ the Mjolnir being sentient thing. I realize that this theory is more a construct of the chat boards than Marvel canon, but I hope it's not picked up in canon.
Mjolnir has always had a "sensitivity" to hit (worthiness enchantment being the best example), and certainly follows Thor's commands (sometimes unstated), but sentient?!
The problem I have with this approach is that Mjolnir becomes its own character if it's sentient. Does it have feelings? Wishes? Desires? Can Mjolnir have a bad day at the office? Don't feel like channeling a god blast today?
Further, and on a purely theoretical level (albeit a comic book one), if Mjolnir is sentient, why wouldn't it also be inverted? Let's gloss over, just for a moment, that a mutant jinx can override god/skyfather enchantments and so on. The logic would follow: Mjolnir is inverted. It would be a logical fallacy in the strictest sense, but the "story" would only make sense if an unworthy could wield Mjolnir. "Whoever wields this hammer, if (s)he be unworthyâ€¦."
1. Thor's not worthy b/c of the inversion.
2. Mjolnir has an unworthy enchantment b/c it's sentient and effected by the inversion.
3. Thor should be able to wield Mjolnir.
As an aside, it's nice to see Thor use Jarnbjorn. But I continue to think it's absolutely awful that it can kill Celestials. Awful. Terrible. Stupid. I'm totally down w/ powering up the weapon set of Ol' Goldilocks, but this is just impossibly dumb. Blessing it with his blood to cut celestial armor?! Really? And further, I'm just not a big fan of anybody taking on Celestials outside of a real cosmic threat. It cheapens cosmics (which I'm not the biggest fans of anyway).
That saidâ€¦.it's nice to see Thor getting a lot of front and center action b/c of all these latest twists.
