Quote: We do not know what this God of Hammers is, or where he comes from. Maybe he has no connection to Asgard at all though I suspect he will. Why is there a God of Hammers? Maybe to have a new, powerful foe worthy of a story.
Obviously, but that doesn't really answer my question.
Quote:By your definition Ares would be more powerful than Thor. After all Ares is The God of War and Thor is a Thunder God with a hammer. Mjolnir was a fundamental force to the Vikings and even earlier incarnations' of the Gods.
I don't follow your logic at all, at least as it relates to my reasoning that a God of War would be more powerful (or higher in station) than a God of Hammers.
Quote:It was the thunder and lightening that slew the giants to protect mankind. Using beards, gauntlets, or belt buckles as a comparison seems to me a bit petty.
My point was that a god of a specific kind of object seems... odd. At least the God of Cereal represented agriculture, and a variant form of Shiva the Destroyer.
Quote:You absolutely have the right to your opinion and state it here.
I wasn't stating an opinion, I was asking a question as it relates to godhood titles.
Quote:Just do not be offended that I see it in a different sort of light. I get it that you are being sarcastic in the straw example but the hammers and jock straps is-well weird.
It was light-hearted. Being the god of a type of object strikes me as odd, and a station reserved for the most minor of gods in general.
Quote:Once more this is a critique of your post, NOT a personal attack against you.
I called one of your comments petty thus breaking the very guide line set by myself. It was unintentional but still rude. In my mind the word was more like "head scratching" but between thought and word on page I screwed up royally- as any fool can plainly see and I can plainly see it. extra credit if you know where that line came from .:-) I appreciate you not making it a bone of contention.
I think the necessity of a god of hammers will be answered as we go along-I hope. I wonder if Thor's destroying Storm Breaker will play into this at some point? That can not be a coincidence.
