Odin should not be brought back. this is a new beginning in thor's life. this not the asgard of old. or the thor of old. thor has been reborn after the final ragnarok. thor has growned wise and educated from his previous ordeal. let's not rehash the old. odin is dead. long live the king!


Of course he will be brought back sooner or later. He's come back from the dead mythologically too BTW. The question, then, is how to do it RIGHT.

My take is that he should be very different from how he has been shown before. Odin mythologically wasn't always "king" of Asgard. At times he was considered to have been less central, while Thor was "king." Thor (Donnar) was referred to as his father, even; of course this could be interpreted to mean that once upon a time Odin's father, Bor Skullcrusher, had the trappings that made him seem an earlier version of Thor.

Anyway, I'd want to see Odin as an independent operative sort of along the lines of how that other one-eyed Marvelite has been operating...
