15 Comic Book Characters You Forgot Are Gods

Posted on

Comic book characters have become the new pantheon of myth in the real world, but it’d be hard to find a person who believes they are literally true. In the world of comic books, gods have the advantage of being provably real with actual visible proof. A few of them have even become recognizable through movie and television adaptations, like how Thor from Marvel Comics has appeared in all sorts of cartoons and headlined several MCU movies.


Oshtur was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, and she first appeared in “Marvel Premiere #5” in 1972. Oshtur was one of the first Elder Gods that appeared when the Demiurge breathed life onto the surface of the planet. However, she left the newborn planet behind before the rest of the Elder Gods got especially nasty, particularly to humans.

Oshtur made it home after a while with her partner Hoggoth (an alien god) in tow, and they had a child together after observing human children at play. This child grew up to become Agamotto, the first Sorcerer Supreme of the Earthly dimension. Oshtur also created the Book of Vishanti and the Tome of Oshtur. She’s consistently depicted as kind and noble, with a deep love for humanity. In fact, this love is manifested in the bloodline of Ororo Munroe: this line of African women have white hair, blue eyes and magical potential as a result of Oshtur’s blessing.
