Quote:...au contraire, he did it rather easily. Thor exhausted himself and had to go into "thor-sleep", and is limited only to those who fell during Ragnarok. Odin did it witha wave of a hand (as seen in a recent tpb, which I forgot).
Under Jurgen's Thor with the Odinpower failed to fully restore a mortal girl to life. He restored the body but not the soul. Odin could not easily restore Balder to life when Loki killed him. It is stated it took just about all of his power to restore Thor and Valkyrie to life after their mortal forms were slained. So there is a firm history of Odin having great difficulty reviving someone once their soul has passed into Hela's realm. Perhaps due to it being stealing what is there by right and going against the natural order.
