Is Thor A More Powerful God Than Odin?

#1 Edited by novi_homines (1321 posts) - - Show Bio

After reading the most recent issue of Thor, a thought arose, is thor now considered a more powerful god during his reign than odin ever was? And if so, does that make him the most powerful god in all of norse mythology? I say this because in this series, present thor meets up with future King Thor. King Thor mentions feeling the Thor-Force flowing through him. Thor calls it the odin force, but King Thor lets him know that it is now called the "Thor-Force", ruling far longer than odin and has wielded it far longer than Odin ever did.

Is it safe to say now the "Odin-Force" is now called the "Thor-Force"? And since Thor has had this power far longer than Odin, doesn't that make him a better, more experienced user of this power? If so, I believe that looking at the two kings in their entire reign, Thor seems to be the more powerful one. Do you all agree? Please, feel free to discuss

No, Odin has a mightier beard.

No, Odin is the All Father after all.

By all father I assume you mean with the power that it comes with. I'm stating that If King Thor were to fight King Odin, King Thor would come out victorious. Presently, the "thor-force" (=P) power that odin wields is simply too much for thor to handle.

I think Rune King Thor (Jurgens run) tops them all. As of right now, Odin is the All-Father and enjoys Skyfather status. Behind him, Thor is far and away the most powerful of the Asgardians.

Hard to tell. After wielding a power source for so long the learning curve on it eventually maxes out. It also depends on how many situations one throws into. If a guy spends all his time fighting the same foes for ten thousand years he never learns how to fight other ones. A person who fights many different foes may be better at using a power because they have to figure how different ways to use it despite using it for a shorter time. Odin wielded it for so long and for so many different purposes it is hard to compare.

As for this, I think the only thing we can say is Thor probable has access to more raw power than Odin. If the powers stack than you have the Odinforce + Thor's innate power. So Thor would be more powerful in that sense.

Thor is suppose to be more powerful than Odin in the future. Odin said this himself. He is the son of Odin, and Gaea after all.
