    Default Oh my God!! - a tribute to DC's gods and various pantheons

    I'm gonna be real with you, I got this idea because I was watching American Gods for the umpteenth time and was wondering what the landscape of DC's deities and various patheons looks like. Not just the New Gods, all the gods including ones based on real cultures and ones from other planet's cultures. are there any god heroes (a la Thor) or gods who were used that who you would like to see used again?

    Planet:


    Regions:


    Other:
    SIGNAL/Duke Thomas is the Midnight Sun of Gotham (respect thread)
    John Stewart is my Guardian.
    Naomi was great, pass it on...
    DC: Batman and the Outsiders, Justice League, Teen Titans, Suicide Squad, The Flash, Justice League Odyssey, Far Sector
    Marvel: Immortal Hulk, Miles Morales: Spiderman, Black Panther, X-Men (2019), Venom, Avengers
    Anticipated titles: John Ridley IV's Batman w/Luke Fox, Love Army*, The Other History of DC*

    I would like for DC to fully acknowledge Ice as a god.

    Absolutely. I'd like to see her associated with a post-Ragnarok Norse pantheon where Odin, Thor and Loki have fallen, and Baldur is the all-father.

    I'd like to see the Celtic Pantheon again. We got to see a couple of them in Batman/WonderWoman so it would be cool to explore the others!

    I'd like to see the Egyptian gods get more development. If Anita Fite returns maybe the Loa can be seen.

    Don't know if they count: They're definitely channeling different pantheons.

    Definitely. We get tons of Greek/Roman and / or Norse gods developed in sword-and-sandal movies or Marvel comics or whatever, so it would be neat to see some other pantheons get a push from DC, and the Egyptian pantheon already has a potential foot in the door through characters like Dr. Fate, Captain Marvel/Shazam and Hawkman. Plus it could be time to finally get that Golden Pharoah character.

    I'm less comfortable with the loa getting developed too much, since that religion is still quite a bit more active in the real world (maybe 'only' a half million or so practitioners, but still more than active Thor-worshipper Asatru), and a crappy comic book portrayal of Baron Samedi as a cackling super-villain or whatever sounds kind of disrespectful, in the vein of making Jesus a superhero, or whatever.

    Is this an appreciation thread for god characters in the DCU?

    When was she implied to be a god?

    There are so many pantheons not explored that could be fun to play with. Tengri is very interesting. In the DC U I’d have him be a sort of deus otiosus with a large amount of manifestations. So kind of like X-Men but gods instead.

    I think Zoroastrian dualism is ripe for superhero genre exploration.

    Also, the Loa would be fun in a occult subfamily of books. Which is something I think DC should be exploring. I’d like to see a revival of occult comics.
