Thor's Hammer

It cracks me up how, in the comics, Mjolnir's inscription was written in such a modern font, as if a comic book letterer was the one who actually carved it into the uru. I forget if you ever see the inscription in the movie, but I'm pretty sure it doesn't look like this. I can just see Art Simek or Sam Rosen telling Stan Lee that they weren't going to go through the trouble of using a fancy script–after all, it was just a 12 cent comic book.
