This isn't a random guess, Thor is actually the uncle of the king of Olympus. Gaea is Thor's biological mother, she is also the mother of Cronus, who is the father of Zeus thus making Zeus the nephew of Thor.

@joshmightbe: Ha, I'd forgotten about that little biological factoid. Guess it is true :P

I hope this has been/will be mentioned in a Thor/Zeus encounter. That could be pretty funny.

@joshmightbe: I was referring to the Thor in Marvel comics. In that particular world he is.

Make it happen Marvel. This should come up when or if Hercules, ever gets his strength back; so that we can get a HUGE BRAWL to commemorate the return of the King.

That is quite interesting.

Interesting. Some reason this reminds me of the song "I'm my own grandpa".

Well you cared enough to comment, if you didn't care at all you would have just scrolled past the thread.

Lovely! We need more plots developing around these facts! Pronto

@drunkvader: Ahh so just trolling then? Cause if you honestly don't care then being a troll would be the only reason to comment. That being the case I fully expect that if you respond to this it will be some meme that you find just hysterical or possibly some joke that you think is just so clever or even a straight up insult. It'll save you some time if I just go ahead and sigh and roll my eyes now. Good day.

I always found it stupid that they made Gaea Thors mother

#27 Edited by SandMan_ (4528 posts) - - Show Bio

Who is next Gaea? Tony Stark?

#28 Edited by The Stegman (23982 posts) - - Show Bio

And in typical Greek fashion, Thor will now sleep with Gaea and spawn offspring that will be related in more ways than one.

@jonny_anonymous: Well in mythology Thor's mother is the norse goddess of the Earth, Jord. Basically they just lumped all the "Mother Earth" figures into one character and went with the Greek variant as the name she goes by tho she has been called by many names in Marvel over the years.

@joshmightbe: Odd they never did the same thing to Pontus (water), Ouranos (Air) or Tartarus (Fire).

@guardian_of_gravity: Maybe the did and they're waiting to do a giant and ultimately disappointing event about it.

@joshmightbe: Events stop being special when they happen every year. :P

Mr.Incredible was right, the world can't stay saved for five minutes.

Some of the information on that chart is wrong.

The chart has the same Cronus that is Zeus' father, also listed as Thanos' grand-father. This is incorrect.

Zeus' father, didn't(as far as I know) actually make an appearance in the comics until 2008(and his name is spelled with a C as in the chart), while Thanos' grand-father, appeared in the comics way back in 1976(and his name is spelled with a K, Kronos, rather than Cronus).

The chart would have you believe that Thanos is actually a God, or descendant of one, when he is actually an Eternal(same as Makari).

The chart also claims that Namor is part God(descending from Neptune), which is also, as far as I know, incorrect.

@sirmethos: Atlantian legend claims that the royal family is descended from the gods, sort of like how the Egyptians claimed the Pharaohs were descended from gods.

@joshmightbe: It seems to me Marvel just wanted an excuse to be stronger than the other gods so they made him half Elder God

@joshmightbe: Remember when events were rare things?

You know when there was a nice long gap between Secret Wars and Infinity Gauntlet before someone thought that the Onslaught Saga was a good idea and should be how 616 ended to give us the awful, awful heroes reborn reboot?

Yeahhh those days sucked too but the crap was generally mired in obscurity.

@guardian_of_gravity: Marvel can't take all the blame, they'd quit making pointless events if the sheep would quit buying things they hate just cause its there.

#40 Posted by joshmightbe (24876 posts) - - Show Bio

@jonny_anonymous: And your point? If they are saying that all the Earth goddess are the same person it just simplifies it and they didn't need to find an excuse considering that Thor was already considered possibly the most powerful god in Norse mythology any way. In fact there is a case to be made that he was probably considered above Odin by quite a lot of the Norse people considering he had more worshipers than the rest of the pantheon combined.

More accurately, Thor is Zeus' great-uncle.

@powerherc: Not really since Thor is the half brother of Cronus, who is Zeus' father. He'd have to be the brother of Zeus' grand father to be a great uncle.

Yes, that's what I was thinking but I put Zeus in place of Hercules.

@theincrediblesuperhulk8642: Having a younger uncle isn't unprecedented, I know like 5 people who have uncles that are around the same age or younger than they are.
