Menu for The Almighty Johnsons


Emmett Couling Skilton

Axl is the fourth brother and the baby of the Johnson family. Axl is an ordinary 20-year old. Well, except he's the human incarnation of  Odin, the big kahuna of Norse mythology, a deity with responsibilities far out-weighing anything Axl wants or needs in his life at his tender young age. Wisdom, war, death, prophecy, battle and magic are among the many powers associated with  Odin. This is a life-changing event for a guy who's still a virgin.
