Flash is too awesome to become a god.

Are we talking about the same God here?

Because if we are, I don't think you quite grasp the idea of omnipotency...

demi godess, I'd wager

or a heroine - as in the classical term of hero, not out modern definition. that's what halflings of gods are usually paired in

I'd say we don't know enough about current Wonder Woman's origin to say one way or another. Because lets be honest she believed the made from clay story until it was later revealed that Zeus was indeed her father. So demi-goddess there, except that we later find out that there is something going on with her bracelets that may or may not be limiting her power to the levels that it currently exists at... so I'd say wait and see at this point.

The whole idea of Wonder Woman and Thor being actual gods never really made sense to me. It makes the whole religious aspect of the universes convoluted, and I think Diana and Thor are arrogant enough without being put on a pedestal like that. So even if they are technically gods I refused to acknowledge them as so.

They are not Gods as in real Gods. Marvel/dc uses it as a title, so it's not related to actual Gods..

You can call myth versions Gods. any myth God>writer>whatever character he comes up with.

I'm not trying to be a grammar nazi, but you would actually refer to them as a "god" not "God". There's a difference.

Regardless, I still refuse to call them any variation of the word.

pray tell, what's the difference? I never get the thing lol

I get that you have to use a 'G' when referring to an actual God, while you can use 'g' for anything that's not one, but used as a title.

So I should be using 'G' for God thor, and 'g' for marvel god thor, right?

I could be wrong but I think when using a capital G you're referring to a monotheistic, omnipotent God where as when using a lower case g when referring to polytheistic gods like the Greek or Roman religions.

Uhh plenty of them have feats and capabilities that exceed those shown in holy scriptures, I am a religous person IRL but when debating in the context of fiction I treat it objectively.

@bob808: Thor is a god. And no, nothing and no one can beat God.

Tell that to SoK who shot that c0cksucker in the face

IRL god is the strongest, but not in the land of fiction.

I can make a fanfic about Mitt Romney strangling God to death and killing Yahweh

@charetter115: I see. That's the point lol no one is sure..

@nerx: Comics use God as a title. So sok shooting God isn't that much of a big deal. Only Godlike thing in comic is toaa, I don't think sok can shoot him. and toaa=writer< God.

@princearagorn1: Disagree

IRL theists (myself included) say that God is supreme being

In fiction that is not true (God/Yahweh/Jehovah can be killed and manipulated), in fiction writer is god (no two ways about it) it is sickening that pantheons get reduced while angels/demons/abrahamic religion get five star treatment. SoK shot the dude in the bible.
