Subj: Sadly, that is Thor's fault too...

    All true but at current I think Odin has shown himself to be more evil and cruel than Loki has since his rebirth. So just from rebirths Loki is doing better than big daddy is. At least in my eyes. Odin is quite unlikable since he returned.

I do agree Odin has been unlikable, but I think he has had good reason for that. Odin made it quite clear he did not want to return. And what does Thor do but return him. What awaits Odin's return? Asgard in rubble, hundreds if not more Asgardians dead, his spear stolen, the instigator of all this restore to life, a massive threat coming with Balder doing nothing, and Thor acting clueless about the whole thing. I would be severely pissed if I were him. Since his return Odin had to clean up one mess of Thor's after another. First the World-Eaters then out of the blue Thor decides to cut open the World Tree. Then the Serpent so Odin has to deal with that threat and try to protect Thor.

I think Loki is only doing better because whether due to Thor or old Loki his memory was erased. Loki also did not get saddled with trying to fix Thor's mess. Odin returns only to find his kingdom in ruins and is left to try and fix one disaster after another. With Loki's return Odin has to constantly look over his shoulder and wonder if this is all just another trick on Loki's part.

In short, I think the way Fraction has written Thor as an almost complete idiot for the first story arc has had lasting ramifications.
