ODin has had more appearances in comics So has been shown to do more amazing things. But is does that make him stronger.

Hercules is physically stronger than Thor and Zeus is stronger than Odin.

Zeus is well under odin! thor himself stalemated zues for a time! odin is a reality manipulator! Zeus is not in odins league! Odin 100% Odin>zeus, thor>Zeus,Herc and ares!

Same character, different culture. King of the gods. They are on the same level. Its just that Odin has more face time in comics so he does more.

I know, but they are the kings of their patheon. I never read it stated that one powewr was greater than the other. In the few books that I have read with they seem to consider each as equals.

I was only going by power. But you bring up a good point. The Greek gods seem to be stronger than the viking gods (except for Thor). Ares and others strength are at 60 tons where guys like Balder and Heimdal are weaker. Unless I'm wrong.

That I can agree with comlpetely. In real mythology Zeus is seen to be more powerful. The whole olympion pantheon is compared to Norse myths. But a lot of that could be due to the lack of knowledge in Norse legends.

"The Greek gods SEEM to be stronger than the Norse gods? do you have anything to back this up other than SEEMS to be! I personally think that people just know and have heard more of the greek gods as opposed to the norse gods, outside of the comics! You'll be surprised at what you learne when you read bout history and mythology! and the gods of heliopolis and olympus are the greek gods! where do you think Zeus comes from? he rules from olympus!

greeks are phisicqaly stronger but the norse gods are better like i dunno how to explaine it but in a fight im sure the norse gods woulkd win

I know a pretty good amount of Norse Myth and Legends, evne have abook with thier most notable legneds (was written in the 80s some time).

The reason I said SEEM is because of that reason you stated. People know more about Greek mythos than Norse so thats why it seems to be stronger or more powerful. Popularity can effect a lot of things.

I've always enjoyed norse myths and thats the main reaons why Thor IS my favorite. I like all the marvel god characters and think there is still so much MORE they could do there if they just got a writer who knew his myths.

To your average(non comic) reader/person when asked the will tell you Greek is better or more powerful than the norse mythos. I would be willing to beat that 4-6 out of 10 people at a campus wouldnt even know what Norse mythology is let alone name 10 of its gods.

Keep in mind to that Ares is not your typical greek god either in the comics. He tends to be stronger than more of the other greeks to. So to cmopare him to the other norse gods of marvels not really fare.

In Marvel Greek I would put him in 3rd physical strength wise.

Just read up on DC's Enchantress, I still like marvels version more. I think she is under rated in the marvel universe, but thats a whole other ball of wax lol.

I went through my Norse book, it just has the main pantheon and she is not in it. So unless she is stated somewhere else I am not sure.

This is how i view Marvel and its Asgardians. They have gods liveing there, asgardians(which i call demi-gods), trolls, giants, and other mythic creatures. The actual characters from the Norse mythology are consiered gods (odin, loki, thor, sif, etc) while the other charcters introduced are demi-gods (enchantress, hogun, fandril, volstagg).

I've also heard rumors that there was a comic out that exsplained the Asgardians to be a alien race and not actual gods. But all I have heard is people remark to it, never with proof of a scan or a comic title and number.
