Quote:Although I have my problems with some of it, I thought it was pretty good.
Quote:Never did like the idea that any gods were a million or more years old (outside of the Elder Gods).
I agree but maybe not for the same reason. For the elder gods like Chthon, Set and Gaea that's fine. But this sort of settles the debate whether humans dreamed up the Asgardians, Greek, Egyptian gods etc or not. Looks like they didn't. I'd rather not know one way or the other when it comes to the Gods from the Pantheons.
Quote:The million years ago humans were too pretty looking, and far too ethnically diverse.
While true I think that would be a pain to acknowledge and explain and it would not further this story. Odin looking like a white guy before there were white guys just sounds too complicated to get into.
I really don't like seeing Odin in this time period. It's in a vague period long before the Vikings would have dreamed him up and well after his story of creating the world from Ymir. I just don't think we should ever see Odin in this time period. It's the part not really touched on in mythology.
Quote:Don't like the treatment of Celestials in the past 20 years, and this doesn't seem any different.
To me the Celestial looked a lot like Leila Davis's Beetle suit.
Quote:Don't like how Starbrand is all "I don't care who I kill," when he's supposed to be extremely remorseful about those he's already accidentally killed.
Quote:But otherwise, it was fine.
