Also by doing things this way we already have a tie in to her background in the form of the old Thor. So an existing character with an established back story the readers probably care about will feature prominently in her story. That is way more mileage than they would have gotten from a brand new character with her own version of Thor like powers.
But doesn't the mere fact we're having this conversation in the first place disprove that? Trying to connect this character to an existing one isn't helping any it's making things worse!
Maybe there isn't anything there to enjoy? I haven't even been reading Marvel comics because they don't tell good stories in the first place. This isn't suddenly going to change that.

They'd only need one twenty to hit. The second roll is only to confirm the crit. So they'd, on average, do 20d10 damage, actually making the troop do less damage.
I really need Rasputin Must Die! Too bad I'm broke.
I don't think he'd be an orc, or get orc racial traits. Ner'zhul seems to have barely had any orc left when he alone was the Lich King. Heck he was basically just a incorporeal entity tied to the Frozen Throne. Certainly he wouldn't have any levels in mystic theurge, because when he was transformed he didn't retain his shamanistic powers. I wouldn't even stat out the pre-Arthas Lich King. Only when he melds with Arthas is he really a creature at all.
Also amongst the Lich King's powers seems to be a form of mental domination that he used to command the natives of Northrend. He also seems to be the original source of the Plague of Undeath, though this ability seems to be rather limited in range as he could not manifest it in any location across Azeroth, thus requiring his mortal servants to infiltrate Lordaeron and spread plagued grain.
I wonder, what do people do about money, if anyone has had a campaign that is actually set in a modern setting. In a setting where Anachronistic Adventurers are visitors it probably isn't much of a problem, except for the characters who find themselves unable to buy anything with Earth money! Though if character starts at higher level than first than it might be a problem equipping the character with level appropriate gear.
I suppose you wouldn't be able to join my campaign?
I'd stat the Lich King as a NE unique undead human gestalt eldritch knight 10/ex-paladin 20/necromancer 5; ex-druid 15/ sorcerer 20 archmage 10. Alternatively I'd replace druid with one of the third party shaman classes. Personally for race I'd just treat him as a human with the undead type and perhaps a few extra abilities without applying a specific template, or perhaps the lich template rather than graveknight. He is able to control large amounts of undead, I'd give him a special abilty reflecting that. He would probably have the Divine Source mythic ability, granting the Death, Evil, Magic and Rune domains and the Arcane, Murder, Undead, Wards subdomains. That's all I can think of for now.

Where in the heck did you get the idea that the Ten Commandments are a purely Christian thing. They're right there in the Torah.
Well there is that (if you're talking about the steamship), however it's more of a general dislike for, what I see as, a tendency to inflate CRs when a creature is even remotely impressive. Personally I think Balors should be around CR 10, for instance.

I thought "wife beater" ant man was really during the time that the Skrull were impersonating him? didn't they set things right when he was the first one to come back from space during the Secret Invasion storyline? (i.e. "after years of captivity in a Skrull starship")
Nope, it happened way back in the early eighties.
I'd like to see some adventures. Hopefully a mix of "modules" that are basically frameworks to base our own adventures on and more fleshed out ones as well.
I'd like to see an alternative to Sigil. Not a copy, but someplace that has the same role as a crossroads of the universe and haven for low level adventurers.
I don't give this too much thought, except that monster encounters tend to be spaced out. Monsters are only found in roughly one in three rooms. Furthermore, I draw a distinction between dungeons and lairs. A dungeon is not directly controlled by a single entity (guys like Halaster Blackcloak don't qualify as they are hands off, generally leaving the creatures that inhabit Undermountain to their own devices. Even the Whispering Tyrant doesn't really control Gallowspire anymore.) A lair is controlled by a single set of inhabitants. A lair will be harder to defeat as it's inhabitants will generally work together better.
Another thing is that I try to only put beasts in chambers connected by open cooridors, rather than rooms with sealed doors.
Did the OP mention anything about Golarion? Then why are we using Golarion's assumptions?
Personally I'd say a lesser deity might even have less than ten mythic ranks or tiers. A greater deity that has a full five domains would be more powerful than a rank/tier ten creature, and might require defining what eleven or more ranks give you.
That's not true either, every megadungeon I've heard of (except World's Largest Dungeon, which is a poor example) assumes that you don't stay down in them for an extended period of time. You go in for a quick delve, then head back to the surface. There are usually multiple entrances specifically to accommodate this.
Mega Dungeons are kinda weird to do an AP based on. There can be so little NPC interaction. Now you can say stagger an expidition to Orv that plays like a long Mega Dungeon...
Sorry, but that is complete and utter nonsense. Of course, it's less true in later editions where xp is not gained for treasure, as long as you're goal is not merely to slaughter everything in sight there are plenty of NPCs to talk to in most megadungeons.
Well, Nale made it to whichever afterlife they were in. Sabine is clearly sweeping him up.
That's assuming his soul doesn't get shipped off to be transformed into a Lemure or something. I'm not entirely clear on how or whether the transformation of souls into petitioners works in the OotS world. All of the people we've seen in the afterlife (at least those confirmed to have been living people at some point) have resembled their living forms (at least their forms at some point in their life).
A phylactery isn't a creature and therefore isn't an appropriate target for Imprisonment.
