Jesus was nailed to a tree.  Odin carries a hammer.  Do the math.

As a bonus, Odin is mortal. All of the Nordic gods are mortal. According to the Norse religion, the world will end at an event called Ragnarok, and the gods will by bye-bye at the same time along with everyone else.

*facepalm*  I'm not up on my Norse mythology but isn't it Thor who carries the hammer?  I suspect the picture is of Thor even though the caption pertains to Odin (who as I recall had one eye, having traded the other for wisdom).

A couple of ice giants still walk the earth. It's probably because Odin packs a hammer and these dudes pack guns. Another god bites the dust.

@SteveInCo - Odin carried a spear named Gungnir, Thor a hammer named Mjolnir.

They were vikings. Just because they had signature weapons, didn't mean they didn't use anything else.

And as long as we're making children pray to fictional characters, let's add Beta Ray Bill to that list.

The Ragnarok is near.

What's with the cape? What does that do but maybe get caught on something (The Incredibles)
