    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.

No idea, quite a few are actually named but sometimes in passing. There are quite a number but how many are specific gods is not known. This is the same treatment that any fiction work has. Be it book, movie or tv show. Or whatever else.

The named important characters are always goingto look better. They show up often and have to seem somewhat competent. The other people are pretty much fodder. Just the way it is in the end. Someone has to make the threat look creddible in other words. And you need armies to make a threat actually seem important. If Thor just showed up and took out a small army of frost giants alone than what is the point anyway?

So to answer your question, in the end yes.

Look Raist bunnies...
