The "Gods" from the Marvel universe are not actual Gods. They merely gave rise to humans worship OF THEM as Gods. Same thing would happen if you sent The Hulk, Captain America, or even Hawkeye back in time.

No, not Hawkeye. Hawkeye would be immortalized for wearing tights and stealing from the rich while giving to the poor.

Hawkeye would be more of a hero than a god, he lacks supernatural powers.

They'd have definitely worshiped Iron Man. Some people still do.

That's true in the Cinematic Universe, but in the comics, they are actual gods, complete with an afterlife and everything.

What exactly is your definition of a "god"?

Abrahamic religions are pretty much the only ones that define God as omniscient, omnipotent, and perfect.

Pretty much every other religion throughout history has not only had multiple gods, but gods with both strengths and weaknesses of character and body.

So, really, who's the exception to the definition?

A physically fit superior man who can give death to a man 100's of yards a way with a stick and string? I would find that pretty God-Worthy were I a Norse Peasant.

Impressive?
Sure! But by our standards. Those old vikings probably did the same as hawkeye.
Anyway, Hawkeye's awesome, but he does not really fit in with Thor, Hulk, Iron man and Captain America. But you probably understand that.

Even in Norse mythology they weren't gods. They were mortals with access to magic and apples that gave them eternal youth.

well i'm swedish i don't know much about the other nordic countries beliefs regarding the asgardians, but what i was taught in school Thor was the God of peasants and Farmers, basically worshipped by simple folk. but that's according to nordic mythology i don't know if it's the same in the universe the avengers took place.

Well if immortality and magic doesn't constitute a god, what does?

omnipotence. So neither the nordic mythology now the greek or roman mythology contain any gods, because all their powers were limited

They were by far not omnipotent. For example, when the Gods fought against the Giants, they would have lost without the help of Herakles.

Well just so you'd know but Heracles was one bad ass motherf*cker. But he died in a very stupid way

I think that sort of depends on your definition of "god" then.
