    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.

Personally, I wouldn't assume the Heaven is Good. I'm thinking more Lawful vs Chaotic and only tolerant so far as its laws jibe with other laws. Comics are just written by screwed up and often wrong mortals. We can generally only conceptualize Good as it relates to us and our thoughts, rarely on global levels, and we haven't the foggiest clue about what Good means in the grand multiversal scheme.

Laws and chaos we seem to grasp easier. It's codified and often quantified.
