Odin's Vault & Thor's Connections To The Marvel Universe

Tablet of Life [Unconfirmed]

First Appearance: Amazing Spider-Man #68 (1969)

The text written on the Tablet of Life is actually a chemical formula, the "Lifeline Formula," which augments its user into a superior being, the best of their species. It and its more evil counterpart (Tablet of Death and Entropy) have played a prominent role in Spider-Man comics for years. Another tablet, the Tablet of Order and Chaos represented the plot device for last year's successful Spider-Man: Shattered Dimension video game.

If you're into Marvel history, The Amazing Spider-Man series reveals that the Tablet of Death and Entropy originates from from Lemuria and the Tablet of Life and Time from Atlantis. Atlantis, later home to Namor the Sub-Mariner and the Homo mermanus race, were enemies to the Deviants, the people of Lemuria whose continent was sunk by the Atlanteans 21,000 years ago.
