      Can someone explain o me exactly how thor retunred to the world of the living? Did he use the Odinpower to just Will himself back? If so does that mean he cannot really die?

      Also, has it ever been explained whatever happed to that sentient odinpower boy?


    Well the way I understand it, as mentioned below Thor was the last survivor of Ragnarok. In MORTAL terms he died, where in reality he just put himself on hold in the void of non-existance until he found a use for himself.
    Also Don mentioned that people had been thinking about Thor, and as long as we keep thinking about Thor and the Asgardians, they would remain "anchored" into this reality.
    So until people really needed or wanted Thor to return, (the creation "CLOR" probably helped with that call) Thor awoke and left the Void of non-existance.

    The Odin-power boy was just the physical embodiment of the Odin-force.
    As ODIN's Asgard disapeared into the vortex of Raganrok so did the Odinforce leaving Thor with the Thor-force.
    Remember Thor reinvented himself by going through the Trials Odin had to gain the Odin-power.

    Think of the Odin/Thor-force as "Rune-Power" a Magical Norse version of the Power Cosmic. It becomes a part of the Asgardian KING and his lifeforce.
    Each god worthy of the trials Odin and Thor had gone through would be able to control it, or thier own version of the "Rune-Power".

    As Odin Created the now old Asgard and the nine worlds, HIS life force ran through it all, with the Raganrok, all that was erased leaving Thor with a clean slate to recreate HIS Asgard.

The way I understand it, and I might be wrong, is that the knowledge of the runes and the odinpower are two totally different powers. Whereas the Rune-power was gaining knowledge of the runes. You get this from sacrifice (the eyes to Mimir's well, hanging on the tree). The odinpower was odin's power. His own power, combined with the power of Vili and Ve, his brothers. One can have the odinpower, without having the rune power, and vice versa.

When Odin died, the odinpower went to Thor. But if I remember correctly, didn't it leave Thor because Thor was using it improperly (ie, during Jurgen's run, the whole Thor: Lord of Asgard storyline). A god doesn't have to go through the trials to keep the odinpower.
