After saving the planet, these "gods" are universally praised as saviors. The Pantheon are led Odin, the most powerful of the gods. In the decades that follow, Odin and the Pantheon herald the world into an age of unprecedented geopolitical cooperation, scientific discovery, and spiritual enlightenment.
