THOR #5 (1998)

When Thor saves an anti-hero radio host from an assassination attempt, his hammer malfunctions–threatening to bash in the head of victim rather than that of the perpetrator.

We will learn that the hammer was possessed by Enrakt, one of the Dark Gods. Since he was able to manipulate the hammer, I’m tagging this as a scene where someone other than Thor lifts Mjolnir.

In his “Jake Olson” human form, Thor has realized he’s an ambulance medic whose work causes him to cross paths with Dr. Jane Foster.

Meanwhile, the Dark Gods continue to occupy and rebuilt Asgard in their own image while keeping Odin bound in a basement.
