Odin is my favorite of all the Norse pantheon. Yes, he dies at the battle of Ragnarok, but he is still wise, and a great warrior. My favorite scenario of Odin is when he was hanging from the tree, that is where he was blinded in one eye. To learn more about Odin, you may read more at Wikipedia. Here is a brief commentary about Odin:

 

Odin (/ˈdɨn/; from Old Norse Óðinn) is a major god in most if not all branches of Germanic mythology especially in the Norse mythology branch of Germanicmythology, the Allfather of the gods, and the ruler of Asgard.[1] Homologous with the Old English “Wōden“, the Old Saxon “Wôdan” and the Old High German“Wôtan”,[2] the name is descended from Proto-Germanic “*Wōdanaz” or “*Wōđanaz“. “Odin” is generally accepted as the modern English form of the name, although, in some cases, older forms may be used or preferred. His name is related to ōðr, meaning “fury, excitation”, besides “mind” or “poetry”. His role, like that of many of the Norse gods, is complex. Odin is a principal member of the Æsir (the major group of the Norse pantheon) and is associated with war, battle, victory and death, but also wisdomShamanismmagicpoetryprophecy, and the hunt. Odin has many sons, the most famous of whom is the thunder god Thor.
