Yeah He's in some books, I knew that and wish Marvel would do a story on Ullr. lol
There is alot of Norse/Germanic myth lost, since most of the stories were passed down by mouth over writing them down.
The Native Americans have the same problem. They told their stories to each generation, and if they weren't told often alot of the details would change or get lost.
I'm sure Snorri Sturluson wrote down what HE knew, there's no telling what amazing stories and details were lost over the century's with the older Norse/Germanic pantheons.
