    Those funky shapeshifting Frost Giants. :D
    I don't know how many books back then were actually in print of the Norse myths, so, in the creators defense it could be one of those things where they used books that were wrong or different too.
    Heck even my versions of the translated myths have very little on Loki's parents, like there's very little background on Sif.

    Vartha,
    I discovered that Sif has a son...Ullr, with Thor as his stepfather. Ullr is the god of snow skiing and archery.[​IMG]

    That may be true. But Stan Lee himself has admitted that they just made a lot of stuff up back then without any research. Why do you think so many characters' origins basically break down to "something happened with radiation"? :D

    It was the most advanced piece of technology of its day because it was powered by the modern miracle known as TRANSISTORS! :funny:

    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. :csad:
