Zeus VS Odin

Zeus VS Odin


With no strong leader it is hard to rule with because there is only chaos. About ten million thousand years ago gods ruled the earth and there were types of cultures like Greek, Roman, Norse Mythologies and there are many more and those are just examples. For the leaders of Greek and Norse are Zeus and Odin. Zeus and Odin are similar in ways that they are both the all gods and people feared them; however, they are different in the ways that they use thunder bolts for weapons and Odin uses Spears and birds and a shield.

In most ways gods are similar in many ways, like how Zeus is compared to Odin for the first one. They are both the All Gods they both rule there realms and all the other realms and the planet earth ”They rule the planet” .Most people know these gods as the king of all gods as Zeus. Greek gods are named after the planets as so they could rule them. They are the best ruled because they both saved their families from harm.

Zeus and Odin have another similarity that they both are feared by everyone. No one likes them because they're raging temper they both have a VERY short temper. Most people feared them because they have all that power “King of all gods”. So much power that they could destroy the planet. When a war happened they fight it and win it for people. Most gods are forgiving but nope, Zeus and Odin are not that forgiving. They punish for breaking the rules.

For all gods they have a special item that make them stronger and smarter and better. Zeus is N0T similar because his weapon he uses a Lightning bolt as a weapon. As all the other gods there weapons are not that good but Zeus’s weapon “is the best weapon”. It can turn into a sword, spear, knife, pencil. That is why it is the best weapon in greek mythology.

For the compare part of this SA Odins best weapon is a spear. For all gods they use 1 weapon but for Odin he uses about 4 weapons or other people call it an “Item that makes them invincible”. For Odin it is a shield made out of gold and he has a spear that is the strongest material in their universe but the main thing he uses to protect all of this land on the 9 worlds is 2 Birds that scout out for danger so he can protect the land.
Now for the second compare the dislikes like how they are both a god of somthing.
For Zeus he is the god of sky, lightning, thunder, law, order, and justice. He is the god of the Sky, Lightning, Thunder because he was born like that. For all of the other powers he inherited was that he was the god of Law, Order, and Justice.
Now for Odin he is the god of Poetry, Wisdom, Dead, and Battle. All is traits come together as one to form that he is a protector, and a god that is meant to rule and protect and savor all of their race.

This concludes a lot of gods compare to each other as a same or a ruler. Like Zeus and Odin are similar in ways that they are both the all gods and people feared them; however, they are different in the ways that they use thunder bolts for weapons and Odin uses Spears and birds and a shield. They are all the same somewhere and all alike in somewhere.
