Reply Subj: So Are Most Of The Asgardians Pretty Much Useless?

Because when you think about it, it seems like they pretty much are. I mean, we don't even know most of them do we? They're pretty much just nameless background characters. And characters that seem to be there in place to help Asgard fight. Fight when Odin does stuff like take the battle to Galactus, or when Asgard has to rally together because it's under attack from Surtur or some other big menace or such. For war and combat purposes. How many Asgardians are there anyway? At least a thousnad correct? The only real Asgardians that we know aside from Thor, Odin, Loki, Bor and Sif, are:

#Karnilla- Although she's back isn't she?
#The Warriors Three
#Amora/The Enchantress- Carlos's favorite and the reason that he reads comics in the first place:). Personally I like her as more of a Thor ally.
#Loreli- I think that I'm spelling her name wrong. But she was Amora's sister.
#Tyr- But he's dead.
#The Wrecker and Wrecking Crew- I know that they're not true Asgardians, but they have Asgardian powers.

I know that there are more that I'm overlooking, but for the most part, they seem to be the main ones, and all of the others are pretty much unknowns. I doubt that they're all that good in a fight also. Being as how most of them don't seem to have any real powers.

Honestly you could send Daredevil, Shang Chi, Bullseye, Winter Soldier, Black Widow and Hawkeye against 10 asgardians and I have to doubt these skilled streets would win. Think about it, no one I listed have any powers whatsover going against class 30 trained warriors who fight to the death.Yet the writer would most likely have the heroes winning. On the other hand, you could have 1 stray Asgardian take on all of the listed heroes and if written correctly, the one asgardian warrior may well prove too much for this team. Its kinda hokey when you consider until recently, The Wrecking Crew were just normal mortals granted the strength and stamina of average Asgardian men.
