He would be called a ruler depending on the time and also the writer.

The defender is what they call themselves and Thor is the defender of the earth so it would stand to reason he has a realm he is known as the defender of as well. But I would say he is as always the one that moves in circles only he knows. So who is to say from time to time he does not walk the back ways defending humans backing up Thor and saving the day. A new face an old face. a touch of illusion and just like Mythology he is here and moved on with nobody the wiser he ever was there at all. Not some old croon sitting on a chair hoping for the best they are warriors after all.

Depends on the run. He's not a hero tho imo, I'd say Neutral is the best.

Love the idea of Odin as a hero he does explore and has the wonder lust in his spirit. Likes to change his look to fit the need. Uses many kinds of weapons. I would make him Hawkeye blending into the avengers' nobody would know the better.

Hes not really neutral. Uatu is neutral and doesnt really care too much about what goes on but Odin usually roots for Thor to win he just doesnt think he can

@kgb725: Yeah, but a lot of that is because Thor is his son, not due to his morals

@kevd4wg: He doesnt want the celestials or someone like Gorr to run rampant throughout the 9 realms. Hes a bit of an asshole yes but he does want Thor and the avengers to succeed

Odin is generally written as having his own sense of morality and responsibility that tends towards him being heroic and trying to do good. This started to change somewhat with Fraction's run but he's obviously not out there trying to be a hero. He's sort of lost his overall purpose within the MU imo.
