old gods do new jobs
Two weeks ago, Marvel's Agents of SHIELD
produced an Asgardian-themed Thor: The Dark World
tie in episode in which a character mused that if the Asgardian gods had turned out to be real aliens, whether other belief systems might also have extraterrestrial origin, adding "Vishnu for sure, right?" While I myself wasn't certain whether I'd forgotten some relevant detail about Hinduism since my middle school days that would make that a cleverer joke or the creators merely picked a deity name out of a hat, the Universal Society of Hinduism takes issue with the insinuation.
