|I would like to note several things|
1. Odin does not have power over lightning. That's
his son Thor.
2. Zeus also has Allfather accolades. He is many
times called "father of gods and men"
3. Zeus does have a true wife. Hera, Queen of
the Gods and Goddess of Marriage. He simply
cheats on her, like Odin does with Frigg
4. Tbh, just a simple read of this seems like this
article is either unknowledgeable or biased
against Zeus. Either way, it is misinforming.

|Last I checked Odin only had one wife, while Zeus had many lovers along with Hera. |

|Hate to break it to you but their really not. Zues attained kingship by staying in hiding from he's father and leading a rebellion. Odin became a king with the support of he's three brothers. Odin's father was a hermaphrodite who was birthed from the ice of the beginnings of the universe. Odin is also attributed, in allegorical terms, with the destruction of the old way and the creation of the new from it's various parts. Odin became human after the willful possession of a king who wanted power and wisdom. This occurred after the said king hung himself on a tree. Odin has 200 names attributed to him, one of them being Yggir. Ydddrasil means Odin's horse. Zues has the epitaph of Licen which means wolf. He was known for wolf cult in Greece. |
