    Default By his bristling beard! The all-father odin appreciation thread

    Odin is one of those characters who has gotten a bit of a bum rap in recent years. So this is an appreciation thread for those who remember well, and yearn to see again, the halcyon days when the All-Wise, All-Father was a force to be reckoned with.

    And since Avengers Endgame has just come out, let's kick it off with a tribute to the time that the Lord of Asgard faced off against the Mad Titan himself.

    ODIN vs THANOS! [AND the Silver Surfer? Yowsa!]

    SO BE IT!

    If ten years of recording The Young and the Restless for my mother have taught me anything, it's that characters in serial dramas are always happily in love...until they're not

    Some pages dealing with Odin getting the Odin-Power (forum rules say I can only post 3 pages from a comic so I've skipped a lot out).

    And it wasn’t just about Odin’s POWER either. He was just a damn good guy, as witnessed in the Trial of Reed Richards for saving Galactus.

    You gotta love the reactions of Sue, Lilandra and Gladiator when they come face to face with the All-Father.

    Remembering the happy time before it was decided that Odin and Frigga had a completely disfunctional relationship.

    Thor #405 Jul 1989
    "Odin Must Die!"
    Annihilus tears his way through the Crimson Hawks, towards Odin. Thor and others stand in his way.
    Odin then appears and, with little more than a gesture,

    sends Annihilus screaming back from where he came.

    Odin sends Thor to Earth through the Fantastic Four’s negative zone portal.

    THIS IS STORYTELLING! Yet we have fans saying these are “dated” and “boring”. Shows what they know and the value of their opinions!

    Odin remains one of my favourite characters ever, regardless of the shocking rendering of him in recent years he at his best use is a fantasti, powerful, authority

    Always felt he had a cool image too
