The council of Gods
Zeus is the ruler of Omnipotence City, a planet teeming with gods from all across the universe. ‘Love and Thunder’ demonstrate that the gods are similar to those seen in ‘Moon Knight‘s council. They gather for these god council sessions, presided over by Zeus, to discuss the fate of the planets they rule over.
This planet is home to numerous gods with diverse connections to the larger Marvel universe. For a bit of rock, paper, scissors humour, Korg’s Kronan God is pictured sitting on a throne of scissors. Bao, the God of Dumplings, is shown to be nothing more than a living dumpling. Mayan and Aztec gods are depicted, which could be important in understanding the origins of Namor, who appears to be closely tied to those cultures and is slated to debut in ‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.’

Artemis God, Elche Goddess, Maori Goddess, Minerva, Goddess of the Dead, Jademurai God, Fur God, and the Dancing God are among the other gods mentioned in this sequence of gods.
Rapu – the God
The god Rapu, who is worshipped by Gorr, played by Christian Bale, at the beginning of the film before being slain by the Necrosword, is not present during the council meeting but is essential to the plot. Actor Jonny Brugh plays Rapu in the film.
The two characters first meet at the beginning of the film, when the God Butcher discovers an oasis in the middle of the desert.
Gorr questions Rapu about why his god abandoned his people. The deity then responds that he is uninterested in mankind and that there will always be more to revere him.

Gorr taunts Rapu, which enrages the deity, who then grabs the human by the throat, trying to suffocate him. The Necrosword picks Gorr before he can, corrupting him and allowing him to stab the deity in the throat.
Rapu, according to Zeus, is a lower-level god of little importance, therefore his egoism and arrogance make sense. Aside from that, not much is known about the God.
