Germanic mythology gave great valor to the writing, which was runic. This knowledge was acquired with suffering. Odin, Father of the gods, suffered nine days of fasting and pain to reach this knowledge.
And somehow Odin thought telling Loki he deserved to die would resolve the problem? Well done, Odin, for making the problem worse. Loki actually feels that dying that day would have been better than growing up with Odin has a father.
In Norse mythology, Odin was the king of the Æsir. He is a god of war and death, as well as a sky god and the god of wisdom and poetry. Along with being a god, he is the All-Father of all the Nordic Gods. He is also heavily associated with magic.
I think he honestly did not expect to be included in Odin's love. :(
Whenever someone calls Odin the worst father ever, I think of Denethor, who literally told Faramir that he wished he had died instead of Boromir and tried to burn him alive.----I think of John Winchester
