Am I the only one or the writers just have nothing else to write about?
I know this a new story by a new writer, but isn't it too soon to focus on Thor being worthless again?? I hope the rumors are right. It's been swirling around that after this arc is over, Mjolnir will be Thor's only. If it's true, then I would say...FINALLY.
From the beginning, when Odin put the worthy enchantment on it, it made him (and the writer and writers) look like the dumbness god in the Universe by leaving an open-end loophole on one of Asgard's most powerful weapon. It's like the USA saying to Russia "how many fingers do I have behind my back? 2? Correct! You can have one of our Thermo-Nuclear missiles!"
I know it's a comic book, but really? It's ok to have common sense. Even in a comic book. The main excuse from the writers would be "If we did that, it wouldn't be interesting." If you're a good writer, you can write any story and give it a good spin.
That's probably my number one pet peeve since Walt Simonson had the inscription broken down word for word. When Thor and BRB had their fight, Odin said that the old enchantment had to be fixed. I thought good ol' Walt was going to make sure to change the enchantment and made sure Mjolnir stays Thor's possession from there on. But what did Odin do? All he did was give the BRB the enchantment to change to his old self before his people made him BRB.
I also think that made no sense that beings more powerful then Odin could not affect the Hammer!
