This is true for any character. If the writer likes the character then that character will receive good treatment, but when the writer has a known disdain for a character than they will be a jerk. I can say this is not the character that Stan and Jack created.
Quote: I don't know, but ever since he returned, I've really disliked the character. He seems borderline sociopath, at least in some stories. Different writers seem to have written him as more sympathetic and loving towards Thor and Loki, but how has he evolved? I haven't read the majority of the Silver Age stories, but he did seem like kind of a jerk in those stories, too. He did seem to genuinely love Thor, though. I guess that it depends on the writer. He seemed pretty noble under Simonson. Thanks.
You are correct this version of Thor,Odin, and all things Asgard have no relevance to the pre-8th universe. I expect that is true of all the Marvel universe . This new version will play out its hand until the next reset which is unfortunate because it sucks rotten lemons. I think Marvel and D.C. are using the four to five year template and maybe they are right in that the old way of numbering is antiquated resulting in new #1s with higher sales in the short run then do it all again. That is the only way it makes any sense but that doesn't make it any more palatable.
