In Thor: Ragnarok, we learn that the eternal flame of Asgard could re-animate people then why wouldn't they use it to bring back people close to Thor? Does the eternal flame reanimate only evil people?

    Spoilers incoming After watching the movie, I reckon that the eternal flame only reanimates someone's body alone - not what makes them who they are (their soul, if you believe in that). So when the Goddess of Death used the eternal flame to reanimate the army of dead warriors and her wolf, it was so that she would have an army under her complete influence (soul not included). I feel that if this is the case, why would Thor or Loki have any motives for "resurrecting" their dead parents? Besides, Odin doesn't exactly have a body to reanimate anyway, so yeah... – XeLa Oct 31 '17 at 3:31
  • Yes, I was thinking along those lines too but the 'dog' just seemed back to life in a soul having, free minded but loyal to Hela way. The skeletal warriors definitely weren't back in 'living' way :D – user76639 Nov 3 '17 at 1:05
  • Actually I got the impression it was the missing infinity stone. Its the right colour after all. Nobody really tried to use it as such. – nathan ralph Nov 3 '17 at 14:35
  • Except we already know Odin doesn't want to keep two stones so close together. – OrangeDog Nov 3 '17 at 14:46
  • And yet if they are going to introduce a soul stone before war, would you go with the goddess of death and her duty to ferry souls to the underworld or Black Panther? But to stay on topic no one really tried to use the flame, possibly it could bring back people for Thor. However they are at heart Vikings who want to go to Valhalla, would they want to bring back someone who achieved this state? – nathan ralph Nov 3 '17 at 14:56
