can a powerful god kill weaker gods?

could hercules beat gods in strength

are norse gods counterparts of greek gods or weaker people often put zeus vs odin or thor

Dear Bernard,

short answers to your questions:

Looking at Greek gods they are immortal so the answer would be : NO !

Are there gods that were weaker than Hercules : YES! as for instance he fought with a lesser river god and won the battle

Well gods have a so called portfolio: Meaning they are protector or creator of certain things
In that way there are Norse and Greek gods that could be compared to one another

Zeus - Odin (although Thor is the god of thunder as is Zeus)

Kind Regards
