Forgot about that Boxing match! Nice! My case is that Thor was a top tier Deity well Ares was second tier, feared by mortals yes, but what god was'nt? Thor should be at a higher level, and if worship meant anything Thor should be the most powerful heto god there is, as he was also worshiped by farmers and poor folk, he was worshiped by all, with no need of sacrifice, yup being labled a god of war means squat to a Norse God! Not to mention the Thundergod is almost always the most powerful deity in any pantheon, or second.

In every cultural myth there are always mortal warriors who call Gods out. Always. One of the main themes is that mortals are alike the Gods, and if Gods challenge cosmic forces above them, so do they.

"Thor should be at a higher level, and if worship meant anything Thor should be the most powerful heto god there is, as he was also worshiped by farmers and poor folk, he was worshiped by all, with no need of sacrifice"

What does the need or not of sacrifices mean here? That is just a cultural thing, nothing more.

"yup being labled a god of war means squat to a Norse God! Not to mention the Thundergod is almost always the most powerful deity in any pantheon, or second".

Uhhh...no. Let`s be frank. No. Let`s not even kid here. Myth heracles was physically stronger than myth Thor. Zeus was clearly overall more powerful as a Stormgod, not to mention physically stronger as well. Maui of the Haitian culture dragged islands from the botton of the ocean and pulled the Sun closer to the Earth...etc.

Thor is one of the most beloved heroic characters of world myth, no doubt, but let`s not exagerate to that point in claiming he would be top two among every pantheon available in the world.
