      I remember back in the day, Thor himself stated on several occasions his strength was a result of his godly birthright and nothing to do with the hammer. Therefore his strength is his alone due to his godly heritage and shouldn't be transferred to anyone else via the inscription.


        Do you agree?


    I think the ship has largely sailed on this issue. Originally my namesake, Roger 'Red' Norvell, required the Belt of Strength, the gauntlets, and the Fires of Gierrodur to equal the strength of Thor. When Simonson introduced Beta Ray Bill, he was already equal to Thor in strength. Walt has since stated (IIRC), that Bill didn't gain any strength from the hammer (correct me if I'm wrong anyone).

    However, when Masterson acquired Mjolnir, he gained most or all of Thor's physical power. As did Dargo in the future. Jake Olsen is a bit more complicated.

As did Captain America when he first lifted the hammer. As did Jane when she lifted it too. Maybe it was not Simonson's intention with BRB but he did gain the powers of Thor when he lifted it. His strength is likely just not exceeded by that of Thor.

Like if you are as strong or stronger anyway than it does not add anything in that regard.

    So while you make a good point about the original intended nature of Mjolnir, DeFalco already set the precedent and it hasn't been rolled back.
