No, he's not being inconsistent. Thor's powers are his, they're not granted by Mjolnir. He's capable - even if he doesn't realise/know it - of using them without Mjolnir, including after it's ...

How could Thor become a part of Earth's mythology despite he didn't come to Earth before?

I'd say it works, because Norse mythology isn't just based on stories that are said to have happened, but also on things that "will" happen. Just like Ragnarök: Someone came up with the idea and ...
