Like wise Seeing Superman sent hurtling thru the Forest like a rocket & trailed by lightning FX, a hammer spinning Thor in hot pursuit, is indicative of major Hammer usage. To Cap it all his final move is to put everything into one hoped for finishing blow from a charged mjolnir... Seems like he definitly needed the Hammer in this fight, To me anyway.

I dont see how he didnt. It was his major gambit to hurt Thor, in a moment, where he cleary didnt had any advantage.

> I also see where you want to go but the idea remains: Thor hitting power with the hammer is no greater than hulk or superman who are weaponless so it stands to reason he doesn't pack as much without it.

Except he had Kal by the ropes, before the HV.
