      I would argue that Chaotic Good, such as Thor or Rogue, would have more chance of being in Heaven than someone with Lawful Evil, such as Darkseid.


        Someone Lawful, will just exploit the rules to give themselves an advantage. So Darkseid will use his authority as ruler to kill his son or underlings when they fail him. Thor and Rogue would rebel against Cap or the President of the USA or Odin to save someone innocent.

    So how do you explain comic book Heaven being depicted as without compassion or kindness? I've seen this repeatedly in both Marvel and DC/Vertigo.

Heaven has been shown as kindness. When Daredevil took on Blackheart (with help from the Inhumans and at the very end Silver Surfer) I recall a very specific point that a girl was slain by Mephisto in his realm ,an angel came to rescue her and both went to Heaven.

Likewise, Death in DC is probably one of the kindest entities of all. Hell is there for rehabilitation, no one can be forced to stay there, unless they feel they deserve it. A Headmaster, who was cruel, but didn't do anything illegal went there based on his cruelty. I would say he was Lawful Evil.

Thor often rebels against Odin, making him more Chaotic than Lawful, I can't see him going to Hell. Going by the definition of Lawful, it goes against what those in authority tell us to do. In a corrupt regime, it may actually be more Good to rebel. Otherwise Luke Skywalker, Neo of the Matrix - all evil. Might makes Right?
