Reply Subj: Odin and his secrets

    Odin has a long history and bad habit of keeping important secrets from everyone including Tho. Usually, these secrets come out when he is not around to deal with them leaving the rest of Asgard scrambling around for a solution.

    For a god of wisdom, this is pretty stupid. Has a reason ever been giving for this? If not, what would a no-prize answer be?

If you reveal your secret, you limit your ability to manipulate people and gods like pieces on a chess board. A good example of this is when he orchestrated events involving Ego-Prime, a plot which spanned multiple plot-lines.

He's primarily been doing this to forestall Ragnarok, but beyond that, he's been doing it so long that the game is all he knows. He's always using one catastrophic event as an opportunity to forestall another.
