I'm glad that you think of this thing as mythological.
I might just 6-0 you in Pokemon. Watch out for my teams.

Thor, Hercules, and Hades.

I don't know much about traditional mythology outside of the smidge I know about Greek mythology and a smattering of Norse mythology. I've been introduced to some other mythologies through reading some of Neil Gaiman's work, but I'm still quite ignorant, to be honest.

Thor and Prometheus. Prometheus is tortured endlessly for giving humanity such a simple, fundamental thing as fire. Jesus died on the cross and stayed dead for three days, and his suffering supposedly paid the debt of sin mankind owed God. Thor was the champion of ordinary folk, yet was the opposite of Jesus. If Thor had been crucified, he would have torn his limbs off the cross, climbed down, and beaten the guards to death with his bare hands.

Interestingly, apparently people in the Middle Ages thought of Jesus as a tough guy and hero. Instead of looking downcast and pained on the cross, he's sort of muscular and looks proud and strong.

I used to get in so much trouble as a kid because I took mythology very seriously and would aloud about how the things that happened in the Bible compared to what other ancient people thought gods did.

Sorry, he's the star of the Abrahamic religions, so he's ineligable. I know he was from previous mythologies, he still doesn't count due to being the central figure of the trilogy of religions that most people believe in.

Really? I mean, it's hugely obvious that you think he's fictional, but I wouldn't have thought you'd be a fan.

He probably just included him because TC explicitly said "except him"

He could just be a fan of kicking his ass in videogames.

I thought his favorite would've been like Anubis.

Artemis and Selene since I do love the moon.

Otherwise, I do find the Nordic pantheon pretty cool in general.
