    But I do think he would be wrong in just leaving. No matter what Thor has or did not do he is still his son, Odin is still their King, and Asgard is still a part of him. What would leaving do? How will Thor ever learn to be a good king unless someone shows him how? True Thor has had many chances but after what he's been through I think Odin would know that now he has a son that would be willing to learn how to be a good king, and if not Thor then at least Balder would.

One could argue that after seeing Odin be king for centuries if not longer Thor would already have a pretty good idea of what is required for being king. Under Fraction, Odin stated Thor refuses to be king because he can't stand the quiet. He needs Odin and Loki in his life to create tension for him. Odin could be wrong, but considering Thor's problems with staying on the throne I think it is an accurate assessment. At this point I think it would be best to focus on Balder. Balder was a decent king under Simonson and Defalco considering he couldn't just snap his fingers and fix things. I would be interested in Balder trying to rule Asgard when he has nigh-omnipotent powers to back it up. I figure that would make things a bit easier. Thor has them and failed which I think is a testament to Thor just not being a good king.

A couple hundred even thousand years is nothing to them, Thor is still pretty young and time means nothing to someone who could live forever. But I think with Thor's contact to humanity and his duel heritage that he would know by now that time waits for no man or God. Especially now with the cycle of Ragnarok over he can start fresh, but then again wanting a new start for him and his people is what gt him into this mess in the first place. It seems that the Asgardians are bound by who they are, the very nature of them rejects any kind of change. Perhaps someone like Odin could change the culture of Asgard but it would take hundreds of years doing so and not over night like Thor wanted.
