Im almost 100% sure he throws the hammer and that pulls him. Although, ive seen him levitate in spot, which I don't really I understand.

he is pulled by mjolnir, and since it obeys his commands, he can hover or whatever. but on his own he can't.

He uses the Mjolnir, but I heard someone here mention he flew on his own once, but I don't know the story behind it.

He can probably fly via weather control like storm if he wanted.
 
I'm sure I've seen him throw the hammer while levitating and not fall to the ground immediately.

Well he is a god so why not

he flies through win control like storm when not using the hammer. with the Hammer he can fly FTL. if he ever fully mastered his magic potential he could fly without the hammer in an actual flight sense not a being carried by the wind sense

Yeah but I don't think they'll ever let him fly without it because then as far as I'm concerned he'll be Viking Superman.

Yes Thor can fly, They dont call him the Sky King for nothing. Plus it wouldnt make sense to throw his hammer and continue in a straight line for hundreds of miles or neither would he be able to hovers in one spot.

No he can only use his hammer to fly,he has floated in mid air until his hammer actually returned to him though. and to all the people out there who says he can fly like Storm.this isn't necessarily true.just because they have similar power set doesn't mean that he uses his wind the same way she does.  
 
The fact that Thor is tons heavier than Ororo he might need more wind to support his body mass,while Ororo is like a feather compared to him...so it doesn't take much of hastle for her to stay aloft, IDK it's one of those thing where you can only assume or guess. 
 
Maybe he never thought about flying without Minjlor?  O_o

This is directly from the Marvel website:

"By throwing Mjolnir while grasping its leather thong, Thor can simulate flight at speeds up to Mach 32 (over 24,000 mph). Thor can steer Mjolnir’s path via his mental control over Mjolnir while traveling and can “hover” in place by spinning Mjolnir in his hand. While throwing Mjolnir when “hovering,” Thor can use winds to keep himself afloat allowing him to appear to be in flight."

To be honest, I'm surprised no one went there to reference is powers haha.

Thor has been shown to levitate recently.

I would use my super-powered-hammer to fly...if I had one.

#20 Posted by sunhawk (550 posts) - - Show Bio

in the avengers movie and the thor movie was he flying with out mjolnir or just jumping really hard?

Thor has levitated, but never fully cared to try and use his potential as I dont think he cares much about it as he has the hammer.

his hammer pulls him. but we can still hypothetically say THOR can fly.

stan lee has stated, he found it weird on how superman can fly without any purpose and he thought it was ridiculous. So he wanted THOR to not just jump and fly but to have some kind of method to fly. So stan made THOR spin his hammer like a propeller then the hammer would pull him into the air.

He can levitate and hoover without Mjolnir but he can't fly without it..

@thorson: Stan Lee finds anything he didn't create weird LOL.

I personally have never read a comic where he fly's without Mjolnir so my bet would be on "No".

I think this makes things pretty clear.

Depends on the story and on the plot.

He needs mjolnir.

#31 Edited by Erkan12 (2768 posts) - - Show Bio

He need mjolnir and IIRC he was falling even in the last movie without his hammer.

#32 Posted by Experio (16240 posts) - - Show Bio

Flies using Mjolnir, but can also fly without it.

#33 Posted by DothThouEvenLift (209 posts) - - Show Bio

He can fly without mjolnir, and pretty fast too I assume.. He can create some damn powerful winds to push him thru the air.. If he mastered his magic potential tho he could also fly like that
