Could you imagine the belt being yanked off in the middle of a battle. That would change things. MAN, why hasn't Thanos/someone stolen that b@$%& yet, lol...
Unless I missed something. Someone on here is bound to know for sure.
Otherwise, you're right (about the Eternals/Titanians).
Also, just for the record, Thanos is often called a Demigod. Likely in reference to his Eternal status as a cosmically powerful being, but one who is not worshipped by mortals. (Although, come to think of it, Thanos has been worshipped by mortals at times, and might thus blur the line somewhat.)
IIRC, Thor used the Belt of Strength during Jurgens' run when he went up against Thanos and Mangog. Not positive though.
As for why he wouldn't use it all the time, best reason I could think of would be his overblown sense of honor- he might feel it was cheating if he used it against all but the mightiest of foes.
But I think I FINALLY found something of use... Maybe... I know how the "Rules" on this board sometimes doesn't except this kind of info for some reason.
And I'm never wrong. Simple miss informed till the pieces are put together.
It honestly depends on what you mean by "god" when you ask this question. If you look at a god as something/somebody that controls at least part of the universe, then Galactus could be a god of sorts. If you mean something like the Christian God, then no, I don't think he qualifies as this. Instead, I have always seen Thor as a true god like the Greeks and Romans worshipped. I guess anybody who came from somewhere besides earth could be seen as an "alien"... but I never really considered him that. Granted, some people are covering his history very well- but this is just my opinion. I think he is more god than alien, but he could be both...
Gods-The gods in the MU for Earth have no clear-cut origin. One of the more popular theories is the Elder gods first formed from Earth's lifeforce (demiurge). They became demons mostly and Atum killed them save a few who either fled or were good. The left over energy formed the basis for the following generations of gods. From the early dreams of mankind's collective unconscious the gods were formed. While perhaps formed from the dreams of mankind they do not rely on mankind for power. Their power is static unless they artificially increased, but they do not draw power from worshipers. Gods are set apart from other beings by drawing upon a specific type of mystical energy that resides within them. That is what the god-hunter Desak seeks out.
Most of the myths have some basis in the "true history" of the gods, but are at least partially inaccurate. An example is Typhon whom Greek myths exaggerated his power and size. As far as I know the Titans of Greek myth have never been shown in the MU.
Eternals-Creations of the Celestials and use a type of cosmic energy instead of mystical. Some of them have been mistaken as Olympians due to physical similarities and an old agreement between the two parties supported this. The Eternals of Titan while sometimes called Titans are no way related to the Greek gods biologically. Eternals may be very similar to gods and even considered gods, but because they do not tape mystical energy they are Eternals and not gods.
Belt of Strength-Thor does have a belt of strength, but he does not wear it all of the time. Most of the time he relies on his own colossal strength and the powers of his hammer. He has used it on occassion where he needs extra physical power. One reason stated that he doesn't use it often is it leaves him severely drained afterwards. That and he is already so powerful in most situations he does not need it or the extra strength would not help much.

thor is a god cause normal ppl belive in him or worship him if no one believed in him he would not exsist, an alien may exsist if u belive in them or not.
i might be backed up in that stament in the new thor series #1
Well we do know that some of them are dependent upon worshippers for power, since we've seen some of the Babylonian gods after they've de-evolved into demons due to extended lack of worship in titles like Hellstorm (Ishtar and Marduk), Quasar (Ereshkigal), and Citizen V and the V Battalion (Marduk again).Gods-The gods in the MU for Earth have no clear-cut origin.
