Where we stand on Jane is well documented. And his treatment of the true Thor. But I really think that Aaron has some deep rooted psychological issues for what he's done to Odin. He has always been arrogant, but at the same time, wise and benevolent. Detached, sure, but never a coward. This issue he literally sits on the throne covering his face in fear while the incredibly brave all mother jumps into to the destroyer to fight mangog. Even though she is still sick. He Just sits there. Want to show her in a good light? Ok, fine. Let them face him together. Nope. She goes and he stays. If you wanted to show Cul do something like that, no problem, that fits. But Odin? Nope. Per Aaron, all women are smarter, braver, and good. All men are stupid, weak, and evil. Odin was never portrayed like this in his 50 years of previous comic history. Just disgusting........

I would say it is out of character to a point but not really in fiction totally. He was afraid to die in myth, it is why he sought to avert Ragnarok. To save his own skin and some of the other gods.

I do agree that this is out of place but Odin has always done unlikable things. It just depends on how much. He has replaced Thor several times. Sometimes for good reason.

But this is not unique to Aaron per se. At least not with Odin being a jerk. Him being afraid is new. Although this Mangog does seem like he is insanely powerful. Keep in mind that this iteration of Odin has faced off with various cosmic powers before and apparently had a relationship with the PF, or at least somebody using it, before.

So, that is telling.

Look Raist bunnies...
