What the question title asks. Has anyone ever given the pronunciation of Thor's hammer, Mjolnir, in any of the comics? I'm not looking for attempts to pronounce, but rather someone who knows how to say the name explaining how to properly say it.

I'd prefer examples from before the first time it was said in a TV or movie appearance, but if there are none, then from anything after is fine.

    I assume you're looking for an in-universe example, as opposed to (say) a letters page or Bullpen Bulletins reference? – RDFozz Nov 15 '17 at 0:13
  • I would look up danish, or Swedish, or nowegian pronunciation rules? It is Scandinavian Ay – Garret Gang Nov 15 '17 at 17:48

    Honestly, it's hard to work pronunciation into a story, as the characters are talking and would (in-universe) hear the word pronounced. The only cases I can think of are Sub-Mariner (after reading a number of people calling him the "Submareener", and realizing that the phonetic spelling was meant to indicate the mispronunciation) (Probably from MARVEL TEAM-UP 14), and a case where the Hulk pronounced Magneto's named as "Mag-Neat-O" (this one's from DEFENDERS (from the 1970s) 15 or 16), which seemed to indicate a hesitation between the syllables. I'd been mispronouncing both names.... – RDFozz Nov 15 '17 at 19:11
