Mjolnir: Tap Two Times an article of numbers by: GF Willmetts (feature).

The Asgardian thunder god Thor’s hammer, Mjolnir, has a rather unusual set of abilities. By a determination of magic by his father Odin, only someone worthy can pick it up, not necessarily Thor himself. Back in the days when Thor could transform into the human Doctor Donald Blake and thanks his birth that the writer […]
