Deadliest warriors of all history
Zeus vs Thor
Height: 7 foot 5
Weapons: Blade of Olympus
Powers: Control of Lightening and Storms and the ability to summon the Blade of Olympus to his hand when he desires. Zeus can also assume the form of other beings but he mainly uses the power for his own amusement than for combat.
Strengths: As the Father of many of the Greek Gods Zeus is easily the most powerful of the Olympus Deities and commands total respect from them. Zeus is also completely immune to mortal weaponry and does not tire allowing him to rage against his subjects or other Deities for months on end without rest.
Weaknesses: Can be harmed by Divine weapons and despite being a God Zeus doesn’t have an accelerated healing rate.
Height: 6 foot 6
Powers: Control over Lightening and Storms and ability to draw Mjolnir back to his hand after throwing the Hammer.
Strengths: Being a Deity Thor is nigh on immune to any mortal weaponry unless he is in his Blake disguise. Despite being able to be harmed by Divine Weapons and most unnatural means Thor has an accelerated healing rate and is extremely durable allowing him to take a long of damage before falling. As a God Thor does not tire either having once spent nineteen months straight fighting an endless horde of Ice Giants without taking a moments rest during the combat.
Weaknesses: Thor draws near all of his power from his enchanted Hammer Mjolnir and if he spends too long away from the Hammer he slowly loses his immortality and powers. Can be harmed by Divine weapons and some unnatural means.
A fierce thunderstorm raged all over Mount Olympus along with the entire country of Greece itself as Zeus sat on his throne, his expression engulfed with fury as he observed his subjects through the enchanted pool in front of his throne. The people of Greece had failed to pay the Sky God his proper respect that month and now they suffered for their misdeed, acid rain fell from the Heavens, crops wilted away, livestock was driven mad and the very dead themselves rose from their graves to attack the living along with a large assortment of other monsters that Zeus had summoned to ravage the land and slaughter the people.
As he observed a legion of Skeleton warriors overcoming a battalion of Guards that were trying to defend their village Zeus then noticed that the black clouds above him where beginning to part. Believing it to just be Helios coming down to attempt to talk him into lightening his punishment of the humans Zeus returned his gaze to the enchanted water only to flinch as a large lightning strike shot down from the parted clouds shattering the ground in front of his throne sending large cracks along the stone.
Rising from his throne as the lightning strike ended Zeus growled with anger as a large man emerged from the smouldering mark on the ground revealing himself to be none other than Thor “you’re a long way from the North Norseman” Zeus spat as he walked down the steps from his throne to tower over the God of Thunder “too long away, Odin knows not to infringe upon my domain”.
“I could not allow this madness to continue any longer Olympian” Thor responded looking down from the mountain “below your people scream for your mercy, plead for forgiveness for an insignificant crime and you only answer with more death and destruction, Asgard could not simply sit back and allow this to happen so we have answered your peoples pleas”.
“You have what?!” Zeus bellowed back, lightening striking around him as his fury rose.
“See for yourself” Thor replied coldly highlighting the pool which now observed one of Greece’s shorelines, as many Greek ships were torn apart by the waves Norse longboats powered through them, raining Arrows down upon the many Monsters that inhabited the beaches. In the capital cities the dwindling Greek resistance were gaining back up from Norse Warriors and Berserkers to quickly turn the tide against the Undead hordes.
Clenching his fists and his teeth as he watched his Monsters getting beaten back lightening began to strike around Zeus again “you dare bring Norsemen onto my land?!” he roared spinning around to face Thor before blasting torrents of lightening at the God of Thunder.
Easily blocking the bolts with Mjolnir Thor swung his Hammer sending the bolts straight back at Zeus to which the Sky God easily batted them aside as he charged as Thor. Summoning the Blade of Olympus to his hand Zeus swung the Blade down at the Norse God who once again blocked with Mjolnir, the force of the two legendary weapons colliding causing a huge shockwave which tore through the throne room area of the mountains peak, shattering the very stone around them and disintegrating Zeus’s throne.
“Insolent little whelp! You dare intrude on my mountain, on my land and bring your filthy barbarians to defy my will?!” the Sky God bellowed as his Sword clashed with Thor’s Hammer sending wild bolts of electricity flying everywhere carving into the stone around them.
“Your people are not mere toys for you to use for your amusement! Your tyranny ends here!” Thor roared back as he started to push back against Zeus’s weapon. Shunting forward knocking Zeus off balance Thor then reeled back before swinging his mighty Hammer to deliver a punishing side swipe straight to the Sky God’s ribs making the larger deity cry out in pain and rage. Getting sent several yards to the side by the Hammer swing Zeus quickly recuperated dissipating his Sword before shooting up to hover over the battlefield.
Raising his hand high Zeus summoned lightning bolt after lightning bolt throwing them down at Thor to which the Thunder God easily batted them aside and even when a bolt hit him it barely phased him “you are a fool Zeus! You think lightning can harm the God of Thunder?!” Thor bellowed up at the Sky God as he swung Mjolnir around, building up momentum before raising his Hammer skyward to launch himself up to Zeus’s level.
“I think lightning is the only element I have under my command?” Zeus sneered as Thor readied his Hammer again, waiting for the Norse God to charge towards him Zeus then slammed his hands together in a deafening thunder clap creating immensely powerful hurricane winds sending Thor flying back. As Thor flailed back through the air Zeus waved his hands around summoning currents of air powerful enough to render mere mortals to pieces, covering the peak of Olympus with dozens of devastating tornados which tore the very top of the Mountain apart sending huge boulders flying through the air.
Grunting and crying out as boulders smashed into him as he tried to right himself Thor swung Mjolnir around wildly beating around the rocks that flew at him at high speed before finally righting himself. Swinging Mjolnir around again Thor then launched himself at Zeus once again flying at him at the speed of a lightning strike tearing through the hurricane winds to score the Sky God straight in the chest sending him crashing back down to Olympus’s peak.
Large cracks further destroyed the throne area as Zeus slammed against the ground, the Sky God rolled as he landed quickly rising to his feet and summoning his Blade as Thor bolted down. Swinging Mjolnir down hard at Zeus as he swung the Blade of Olympus up, the clashing of the weapons causing a catastrophic shock wave which further destroyed the Mountain’s peak causing both Gods to descend into the huge crevice they had made.
As they fell Zeus and Thor continued to lash out at each other, their strikes only causing more shockwaves which further tore the mountain apart. Every time their weapons met another crack ran down the Mountain’s sides as well as sending out a lightning strike which tore along the land around Mount Olympus.
Kicking Zeus away Thor then swung Mjolnir downwards slamming the Hammer into what was left in the Mountain’s foundations causing Olympus to almost erupt like a volcano. The entire Mountain exploding showering debris and rubble down for miles around causing further destruction to nearby cities and settlements. Landing hard on his feet Zeus let out a furious roar as he watched his Mountain crumble into rubble with Thor marching out of the destruction “you insult my authority, you bring invaders onto my lands and now you destroy my home! This insolence will not stand!” the Sky God bellowed drawing his Blade to his hand once again.
“Your threats do not scare me Olympian, your tyranny ends now!” Thor declared back swinging Mjolnir again as he once again charged at Zeus who in turn ran at Thor, their weapons clashing once again causing more shockwaves and lightning strikes to further tear up the area around them.
Breaking the weapon lock the Norse God swung at Zeus who leaned back to avoid it returning with a Sword slash upwards carving his Blade along the front of Thor’s armour and face making him cry out as he shed blood for the first time in centuries. As Thor recoiled Zeus kicked at his abdomen sending the Norse God flying back landing hard on his front several yards away as his Hammer slammed to the ground creating more cracks in the stone.
Grinning maliciously as Thor heaved himself up Zeus marched towards the downed Thunder God grabbing hold of the hilt of Mjolnir as he went, only to nearly dislocate his arm as Mjolnir refused to move “what?” he grunted dissipating his Sword to wrap both hands around the Hammer’s handle straining with all his might to make the weapon rise from the floor.
“Mjolnir will not answer to you tyrant” Thor called out as he rose to his feet “your dark heart keeps you from ever knowing its power”.
“Do not mock me Norseman! I am the father of the Gods! King of the Sky! Do not call me unworthy of this Hammer!” Zeus snapped as he strained harder on Mjolnir’s handle, the veins along his biceps bulging out as the Thunder Hammer still refused to move.
Sighing at the Sky God’s stubbornness and denial Thor held his hand out to summon Mjolnir back to him, the Hammer immediately flying from its resting place to return to his hand making Zeus cry out in agony as his left out was torn clean out of its socket by the sudden jarring action of the Hammer moving. “This…cannot…be happening!” Zeus grunted as he forced his arm back into its socket and re-summoning his Sword “I am above you, above all creation, I am the father of the Gods!”.
“Your arrogance will bring only your demise” Thor returned as he readied Mjolnir to attack again, his own experience with his hubris having taught him to never underestimate an enemy. Unwilling to listen to reason Zeus charged again, his Sword easily blocked by Thor’s Hammer to which the Norse God used his free hand to slug the larger Deity in the head making him fall to his knees before Thor continued spinning Mjolnir around before slamming the Hammer into Zeus’s back sending him crashing to the dirt.
As Thor raised Mjolnir once again to cave in his skull Zeus quickly rolled over slamming his hands together to create a thunder clap, the sudden blast of air sending Thor flying back and sending Mjolnir crashing back to the ground. Now blinded by anger and his own grandeur Zeus rose to his feet grabbing hold of Mjolnir’s handle again determined to prove to Thor that he was indeed worthy of his weapon intending to use the Hammer to end the Norse God’s existence.
Landing hard Thor gritted his teeth with rage as he found Zeus once again trying to claim his Hammer, lifting his hand the Norse God splayed it out to call his weapon back to him “Zeus! You will not have my Hammer!” he bellowed as Mjolnir once again rose from the ground to return to its master racing through the air to meet his hand.
Only for Thor to realize that the Hammer was covered in blood.
Turning back to Zeus Thor found the Sky God frozen in place, crouched where he had been moments before hand now with a gaping hole through his abdomen and back. Having been facing away from Thor the Olympian had been directly in Mjolnir’s flight path causing the Hammer to tear straight through his body on its journey back to Thor. Speechless as agony coursed through his body Zeus slowly staggered to his feet turning around to face Thor, his eyes wide with shock and pain “h…how....?” he wheezed before his eyes rolled back and he collapsed backwards onto the ground lifeless.
As the Sky God breathed his last powerful bolts of lightning began to strike his body, making it jerk and spasm several times before one final bolt emerged from his body striking at the clouds above. The sky lighting up as the bolt separated the clouds instantly, the great storms that covered Greece calming in seconds and the many creatures that had been under his command either dropping dead or promptly fleeing bringing the Greek and Nord soldiers great relief.
Content with his victory and the peace that now covered the country Thor swung his Hammer once again launching himself skyward to return to Asgardo. Now Greece could rebuild itself, the fallen could be mourned and the damages could be fixed, all without the constant fear of Zeus’s wrath looming over them.
Ok before anyone comments as such this isn’t meant to be Marvel vs God of War, if it was so I’d have made an Avengers joke and whilst I mentioned the Blade of Olympus I only did so to give Zeus a weapon as from all the Greek legends I was taught as a kid he only wielded lightening as a weapon which would do nothing against Thor. Aside from the Blade of Olympus I’m sure another reason people will think this to God of War is Zeus’s personality, if anyone pays attention to Greek legends Zeus is nothing more than a lecherous tyrant, he constantly commits adultery against Hera and even rapes his mortal subjects on a whim seeing them as nothing more than pawns to be used for his own amusement. This being the main reason why Mjolnir would deem him unworthy of wielding it and as a power hungry tyrant Zeus would be both more than eager to take the Hammer for himself which would draw his attention away from the battle giving Thor the upper hand.
