> Hi there........I was hoping to get some feedback. I was thinking of making a website that centres on the gods as they are portrayed in Marvel. I was wondering if anyone would be interested in visiting a site like that and if so what kind of content they would most like to see. Any feedback given would be greatly appreciated.

I would definitely visit a site like that. But I think the one thing that I'd really like to see, would be how the Marvel deity is portrayed, but also have how the real deity is portrayed. Just have a small blurb at the end of their profiles that perhaps gives a popular story involving them or just an overview of their role in real mythology.

That is a great idea for a website, though. And I wish you the best of luck and can't wait to be one of your first visitors once it's up and running!

That's a good idea, Kenobi.
And one that really isn't out there yet.
Imagine a nice shot of Marvel Thor side by side with an artist's book
illustration of the mythical Thor. And then a short blurb on each that
shows some of the contrasts. Nice.

Immediately, people like Loki's father comes to mind. Marvel had his
father named Laufey, yet in the myths, that's his mother's name.
