The Comic books are filled with Gods and Pantheons. There is the Egyptian Pantheon, the Hindu Pantheon, the Chinese Pantheon, the Shinto Pantheon, the African Pantheon and the South American Pantheon. But in the comic books, only two of the Pantheons have had a marked increase in popularity. Only two of the countless pantheons of ancient mythology have heroes and villains dwelling in the comic books. The Greek Pantheon of Mount Olympus, ruled over by Zeus, the Sky-Father and God of Thunderbolts and Justice and the Norse Pantheon situated in Asgard and rules over by Odin, the All-Father and the God of Wisdom and ruler of Asgard.
Both are the Kings of their respective Pantheon of Gods and are extremely powerful Godheads. What if, somehow, a fight between the Norse and the Greek Pantheon erupted and Mount Olympus and Asgard found themselves at war with each other? What if Odin and Zeus themselves decided to duke it out on the battlefield? Presenting Odin vs Zeus – Why the Sky-Father can never hope to defeat the All-Father!!!
Zeus is the leader of the Greek Gods and the King of Mount Olympus. As a being belonging to the race of extra-dimensional entities with vast superhuman and energy based abilities. Zeus has superhuman physical attributes of strength, speed, durability, stamina, endurance, and reflexes.
He is a formidable hand to hand combatant having tens of thousands of years of experience in close quarter fights. Zeus also happens to possess the mastery of energy manipulation and his ability to hurl thunderbolts at his opponents with pinpoint accuracy is unrivaled in the whole Marvel universe.
Zeus’ strength is also much more than the average Olympian and he has managed to beat the Hulk with his bare hands alone. Zeus is immortal and has an incredible healing factor. He also has the power of precognition and can view multiple alternate timelines simultaneously. The King of Olympus is also a great practitioner of Magic and has defeated even Galactus using his magical prowess.
Odin is the King of Asgard and the father of the popular superhero known as Thor. In Norse Mythology, Odin is the King of Gods and the God of Wisdom, Knowledge, Poetry, Weather and a busload of other phenomena.
In the comic books, Odin has shown the ability to teleport himself and others (including a whole city, the entire Asgard and even the whole Human race to another dimension or location), telepathically communicate with others, longevity and practical immortality, and immense magical Energy manipulation.
But Odin’s greatest feat is his Odin Force, a magical reservoir of virtually unlimited energy that grants Odin abilities unavailable to any God in the Marvel Universe.
The Odin Force gives Odin an array of abilities and it has allowed him to go toe to toe with even a Celestial on one occasion. Odin carries with himself the mystical Spear called Gungnir and an eight-legged steed called Sleipnir the that can travel so fast it looks like Odin is virtually teleporting from one place to another, even if the locations are situated Thousands of light years apart. Odin is also an adept fighter and possesses physical attributes that far surpass those of regular Asgardians, even those of Thor.
Final Fight –Odin Vs Zeus
Zeus and Odin are similar on several fronts. Both can control lightning, have great expertise when it comes to combat and are extremely powerful practitioners of magic. They can hold their own against any adversary, cosmic or otherwise.
A fight between these two Godheads would not just be spectacular but the collateral damage would also probably lead to the end of the world as we know it. But there can only be one winner.
So will win this one? Any guesses???
Odin will most certainly win this fight. Zeus is notably stronger in terms of physical attributes but Odin scores highly in one category where Zeus would have trouble hitting the right mark – Magic. Odin’s command over the mystic arts is legendary, even amongst Gods.
In addition to that, Odin also possesses the Odin Force. The Odin Force has granted the All-Father the power to destroy entire galaxies, resurrecting the dead and stop the flow of time. Zeus may be one of the strongest Gods to ever exist in the Marvel Universe but Odin happens to be the stronger of the two. The All-Father takes this one.
