They also have a more relaxed game which involves hitting much easier targets: bald men.
:D And everyone will blame those poor innocent pigeons…
Zeus and Jupiter are the same god, though…
You and your conspiracy theories are so adorable, Fenrir. You don’t seriously believe in all those rumors do you?
And so is Thor. More hammer, less seducing-mortal-women-into-zoophilia stuff, but I think this just reflects that the Northeners were much cooler and much less perverted than the Greeks. And if you think about the Christian god as the innovative synthesis of the pagan gods (what else would a novel single “The God” be replacing dozens, if not hundreds, of older specialized gods), than he’s also part Zeus-Thor-Jupiter-whatever. You know, flaming bushes, bolts of lightning, whatever.
Bottom line: I believe this might be intentional.
Zeus was the main god from the greek while Odin was the main god for the Nordics. Zeus and Thor aren’t much alike besides lightining.
About being pervs, did you know that Loki gave birth to a horse? Seems like his sex life was way crazier than people give him credit for.
Yeah, I think I’ve heard the horse thing…forgot about that. Not that I’m much versed in norse mythology anyway. (Obviously this doesn’t stop me from making decisive statements;)
Yeah, he had sex with a horse and become the mother of a 8 legged horse. He is also the father of these cute kids http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:The_children_of_Loki_by_Willy_Pogany.png
On paper: No. Zeus was worshipped in Greece while Jupiter was worshipped in the Roman Empire. But possibly borrowed frog Greece, so technically: yes.
True! I split Zeus/Jupiter into the Greek and Roman versions to get another participant in the game. Turns out there aren’t that many widely recognizable weather gods. Maybe I missed some, though.
I wold recommend you to use the Japanese god Raijin aka Raiden but draw it like Raiden from Mortal Kombat because this way people would easily recognize him. I think this is the only other easily recognizable weather god I can think of.
Well, there’s Slavic God of Thunder named Perun.
The ice cream! Noooooooo
