    As if mangling his character wasn’t enough, Aaron the God Butcher is now hacking away at his identity. You gotta be f@#kin kidding me. There’s definitely no need or appeal to replace Gaea that I can fathom. I’ll take Kelda over the Phoenix any day of the week and twice on Sundays. Thor has always been as powerful as he needs to be, it’s one of his most defining attributes. What needs to be addressed after Aaron’s catastrophic aftermath is not power levels but character and good storytelling. A creative writer shouldn’t need to make a character “more powerful” to increase their popularity or allure. If so, he isn’t a very good writer. Besides, that’s what we have Galactus, Celestials, Beyonders, and Squirrel Girl for.

    I wouldn’t mind a story where Kelda, given her storm powers and ambiguous origin, was revealed as his mother as an aspect of Gaea. I obviously wouldn’t prefer it over the canonical origin.. but definitely over the Phoenix. There absolutely isn’t any relevancy with the Phoenix dynamic whatsoever, not to mention all the mutant connotations attached to the Phoenix, it’s just absurd and plain stupid. It adds nothing to the “great scheme of the universe” aside from giving Eternity a migraine.

Gaea as an elder god is powerful enough IMO. And I agree making Thor more powerful doesn't make him any more likeable. They've tried that with Captain Marvel and we all see how that worked out.
