Clearly, very few people have shown the capability of being "worthy" to lift Mjolnir. However one question still arises.

According to Marvel wikia (here):

Mjolnir can also transform its user into his civilian guises. When Thor was a civilian, the hammer most often became an old wooden cane.

So, does the enchantment still hold when Mjolnir is disguised as

a cane (Comic-books) or as an umbrella (in the Thor:Ragnarok)?

    Well, since in Ragnarok the "umbrella" still makes the same sound as Mjolnir always has, and it's still capable of smashing stuff on its way back to Thor's hand, so I'd say the answer is probably no.

    Even when it is not a cane people like Vision can lift it Commented Dec 4, 2017 at 19:54
  • @MetroBoomin But Vision's not a "person."

    @Bob that is a very close minded attitude. Androids have fought long and hard for their "person" status. Even when they wear meat bodies like Vision, you people still look down on them. #androidsarepeopletoo

According to Thor Vol. 1 #138, the answer is that as a cane, there is no immovability enchantment on it:

    Now, the question is: What happens if someone breaks that cane?
