Something So Poorly Designed

Your Star Trekiology verse of the week:

After Captain Jean Luc Picard has a serious accident which causes his artificial heart to quit working, he goes to a world of all white where a mischievous, but powerful entity known as Q tells him that he is God.

Captain Picard laughs and says,

"You are not God."

To which Q replies:

"Blasphemy! You're lucky I don't cast you out or smite you or something. The bottom line is your life ended about five minutes ago under the inept ministrations of Dr. Beverly Crusher."

To which Captain Picard answers:

"No. I am not dead because I refuse to believe that the afterlife is run by you. I refuse to believe the universe is that poorly designed!"

Thor is God. God is Thor. It's a Marvel universe. Deal with it.

Well, I admit that Thor is a better choice than that Iron Man- who probably thinks he can run the universe and fight evil from his bar stool.

Still, Batman would clean Thor's clock before he could say "Holy thunder blunders". So the choice is obvious.
