Mesopotamian Supreme God

Top Babylonian deity, Fertility God and supreme holy leader

As the boss of Babylon and custodian of the Tablets of Destiny (see ME), MARDUK was definitely a force to be reckoned with. Until he was stolen by Assyrians — causing a lot of aggravation with failed harvests and war.

We don’t quite know how this theft was accomplished, but when he went missing his worshippers were no longer able to offer him his two meals a day plus musical performances.

Rumors abound of a takeover bid by ASHUR, but where is he now? Has anyone seen MARDUK? Last seen with beard and very strange sort of Noddy hat.
