> As in The Marvel Tarot Agamotto is revealed as "son" of Oshtur (both of the Vishanti) and Osthur as an Elder Goddess, sister of Gaea (and Chthon and Set), that would make him (it?) cousin of Thor...

The terms "sister" (Oshtur and Gaea in regard to each other) and "son" (Agamotto in regard to Oshtur) were used in the Marvel Tarot. As I said I am not thrilled either...

Excerpts from another post of mine:

Chthon, Gaea and Set were meant to be a Trinity of sort and so were the Vishanti (Agamotto, Hoggoth and Osthur), so seeng one of the Vishanti used to fill the Air slot, making Oshtur an Elder Goddess was a bit disappointing... Why not having made Gaea the fourth member of the Vishanti (the one most linked to our Universe, not to the Earth planet only) and have Agamotto = Water and Hoggoth = Fire?
IMHO the two trinities were correspondent: the Elder Gods for the Earth Planet, the Vishanti for the Universe/Earth Dimension (Chthon = Hoggoth, Gaea = Oshtur and Set = Agamotto). At this point making four elements correspondences would be tricky, I know...

Agamotto as "son" of Osthur was another mild disappointment (I liked the legend of Agamotto, though... )!

Well I don't know if I could call Gaea, Chthon, and Set somekind of Trinity since that would need the three of them to work together no matter how little and we all know if they had a chance they would get rid of the other two in a heartbeat plus Chthon and Set only survived Atum's attack by escaping.

But I do like the idea of giving them more importance and not just a "bunch of old Gods from a single planet", I think it was suggested before that the idea of Earth being at somekind of Cosmic Nexus and thus would make it the most "important" planet in the universe plus it would explain the inordinate amount of Super heroes on Earth and give Earth's Gods more important cosmic roles as protectors of Earth and that Cosmic Nexus.
