After the release of the movie Thor: Ragnarok, I keep seeing a fan theory on the Internet saying that Mjolnir might return in Avengers: Infinity War.

The logic: Thor took the Mjolnir to Doctor Strange's sanctum and kept it there. Doctor Strange replaced it with a fake Mjolnir which responded to Thor's summon in the end. So, Hela ended up destroying fake Mjolnir and real Mjolnir survived. Doctor Strange did it on the request of Odin, so that Thor could realize that he is God of Thunder, not God of Hammers.

While this is a beautiful theory and it's possible for Doctor Strange to trap the Mjolnir in a pocket dimension or maze of portals, I am curious to know whether he could really create a replica of Mjolnir. Here, Mjolnir doesn't need to be strong, but it should respond to Thor's summon and be able to do thundering and immovability stuffs upto some extent.

Has Doctor Strange shown such set of powers in comics?

    I'm tempted to remove the thor-ragnarok tag (50% sure) and the avengers-infinity-war (85%) sure, since the question is not really about either of those entities but merely uses one of them as a basis. – Edlothiad Dec 5 '17 at 6:38

    Couldn't he just use the Time Stone to rewind Mjolnir to a point where it was whole? – DisturbedNeo Dec 5 '17 at 10:00

    Regarding the tags, since you could just as easily ask "Has Doctor Strange ever demonstrated in the comics an ability that would allow him to create a replica Mjolnir?" without any of the above MCU background, I would say the tags have no relevance and can be removed. – DisturbedNeo Dec 5 '17 at 10:04

    I assume you're referring to Mjolnir being destroyed, which was in every Thor: Ragnarok trailer, so no, it doesn't constitute a spoiler in this case. – DisturbedNeo Dec 5 '17 at 10:05

    Also, Thor going to the Sanctum is the mid-credits scene of Doctor Strange, so that's not a spoiler either. One could make an argument for the mention of God of Hammers, but I don't think it's enough to warrant spoiler blocks breaking up the question. – DisturbedNeo Dec 5 '17 at 10:14
