So the Big bad is a previously unknown brother of Odin. It certainly seems to be that he is going to pose a serious threat to earth.

My question is why is this? Pluto who is an obvious parallel to draw from (brother of a skyfather, and a not very nice god) has never been portrayed or shown to be as much as a threat as "The Serpent" is going ot be. Why?

I don't know if Pluto is a direct comparison except for the fact he's Zeus' brother. Plus I think there's a difference between being a God of Death and the God of Fear, Pluto and Hela and for the most part most Death Gods (Mephisto not included) strive for power which for the most part means gaining more souls. They are not necessarily evil but they will commit evil acts to gain what they want and both have aided their respective kings in dire straits. Plus Zeus has always been shown as more powerful than Pluto, so Zeus has kept him in check. Being a God of Fear in my opinion is less "political" and more primal, fear is an emotion which can be used to gain power. I have no idea how they will depict this new God of Fear, but I hope it's not your typical "wants vengeance against Odin, and rule both Earth and Asgard" because that has been done a million times. I want to see a villain who doesn't care about power or rule but to spread fear and despair, a villain truly evil and twisted but also cunning with true power to back up his threat.
