Bear with me. Here’s the syllogism.

Humans need gods to worship to make sense of the universe.

Gods are humans with super power benefits.

The Greek gods [Ares, Athena, Hera] are an example of this phenomenon.

Among gods, there is a Supreme God.

Zeus is the supreme God of the Greek gods.

 

Comic book superheroes are the gods of the post modern world.

The Marvel comic universe of superheroes [The Avengers] is an example of this phenomenon.

Ironman appears in and plays a prominent part in all Marvel comic universe movies thus far.

Ironman is the Supreme God of the Marvel comic universe.

Ironman is portrayed by Robert Downey Jr.

Therefore Robert Downey Jr is Zeus.
