    Quote: I said, that can be revealing that the God Storm is not the  power source of the hammer. It's just a malevolent entity which corrupted mjolnir. To fix the reveal that the power source of the hammer is the god storm could be a new reveal that it was all just a big fat lie.

Even for comic books this would be far fetched, it would make a mockery of Thor and Odin. It also makes no sense for Odin to capture a storm, trap it inside Mjolnir and not use its power. It would a potable jail for the storm? Why do that?

    The others who wielded mjolnir did get weather powers because they are  imbued with the Power of Thor. "Whosoever, if he be worthy, shall possess the Power of Thor". The weather power is part and parcel of being the god of Thunder. So, that power source is not the Odin Power. The enchantment which enabled the wielder to access the power of thor is the worthiness enchantment placed by Odin.
Marvel has tried in the past to clear this up but for me still messed up. When Thor holds Mjolnir he doesn't get his own power back because he is his own power. The hammer would just give him extra abilities apart from his storm powers. When someone else who is worthy holds Mjolnir they become Thor in essence (I think minus the Godblast since that comes from Thor himself ). So the Odin Force copies Thor's power and imbue the holder with that power. This was the way I understood it. With the God Storm, things have changed somewhat making the hammer have storm powers similar or equal to Thor's innate storm powers. If that's the case then Thor should be twice as powerful as he is now or his powers weren't that powerful to begin with and the hammer made up the difference? Which is it?  I think this has not been flushed out and explained properly. This is why the God has got to go IMO.     

In the previous posts, you are offended that the power source for the hammer is the god storm and not Thor. And now you think it would make a mockery of thor and odin if Odin did not use the powers of the god storm? Weh? Make up your mind, and not just disagree for disagreement sake.

Why would Odin do that? Well, he did absorb Surtur once and imprisoned the Elemental Demon in his own body.

And what the heck is a "potable jail"? Drinkable jail? Uncontaminated jail?

And before we go off-tangent, the scenario I stated above is my way of fixing the current storyline. It's not what I think is happening. It's not what I thought happened. It's just a hypothetical scenario how I will fix the current storyline. Ok? Why did I come up with this? Because you originally said that there is no way to fix the current arc. I just half-assed it and came up with a very plausible scenario where I can fix the things that you are offened the god storm being the power source of the hammer...I will fix that by just saying that it is not the power source, just merely corrupted the hammer (which has happened before with the Enchanters).

Far fetched? No. Everything I proposed has been done in Thor comics in one way on another....the hammer as the prison for the God Storm? Odin used himself to imprison Surtur. The god storm corrupting the hammer? The Enchanters once corrupted Mjolnir, and Surtur once also almost corrupted Odin. There are precedents, and not far fetched at all.

As for the Odin Power copying Thor's powers, as how you understood it...there is nothing overtly stated that such is the case. Not a thing. With mjolnir, another wielder, if proven to be worthy, also possesses the Power of Thor...not "the carbon copy of thor's power courtesy of the odin power". When Thor fought Eric Masterson and both of them used the hammer in that fight, do you think the hammer alternated enchantments? No. Do not overthink things. Sometimes, it is what it is. The wielder of the hammer just access Thor's powers, nothing more. If it doesn't make sense to you, well, still doesn't make sense how anyone can instantaneously travel from one end of the universe all the way to the other side, but it does happen in comics...a lot.

As for the odin power copying Thor's powers? Maybe in the case of Stormbreaker for Beta Ray Bill....maybe. but with Mjolnir, it's always "whosoever holds this hammer, if he be worthy, shall possess the Power of Thor".
