I have renamed the Category Gods as Deities. I think its a broader category that better fits many of the characters from polytheistic traditions, and also avoids the naming confusion of gods and God. Some entrants in this category are obviously open to dispute. Eve I've included due to her ascendancy over supernatural beings, and Atropos because in Roman mythology the Fates were known as deities and feared by the Greek gods. Happy to take comments on it though. --Missyjack 13:17, 18 April 2011 (UTC) Super Wiki Admin

I completely agree with the name change. Since there are god-like beings (mostly pagan) that are not always seen as gods (eg. Tricksters are rarely seen as gods, Loki is sort of an exception there). There are higher spirits etc., deity is a perfect generic term. Scyllaya 16:07 19 April 2011
