Thor (1962) #92
Cover by Jack Kirby. "The Day Loki Stole Thor's Magic Hammer" is plotted by Stan Lee, with script by R. Berns and art by Joe Sinnott. In punishment for the sin of pride, Odin the All-Father vowed that whenever Thor relinquished control of his mystic uru hammer Mjolnir for more than 60 seconds he would once become the frail mortal known as Dr. Don Blake. Such is the truth on Midgard (Earth) but while in Asgard Thor is still mighty even without his favorite weapon.
However, evil Loki (already chained to a rock for his past misdeeds) knows that if he can separate his hated half-brother from Mjolnir he'll have a much better chance of destroying him. Through Loki's sorcery, killer trees and massive dragons challenge the Son of Odin who must find a way to fight on bare-handed! Also, word of caution: never mock a monkey! If you do you may share the incredible fate of "The Man Who Hated Monstro!" (plot by Lee, script by Larry Lieber and art by Paul Reinman). Finally, a lone space traveler fears being stranded on Rrorgo, a planet populated by hulkish brutes. But how quickly things can change when he can say "I Used to Be Human!" (written by Lee and drawn by Steve Ditko). Plus, will you drink "The Remedy Oil"?
