...... This is probably one of the strongest posts I have seen. I guess there can be hero gods, since most gods are a hero to their worshipers anyway. Although Thor is understandable, he was the viking god of lightning. A god named the monkey king is a bit confusing. Alot of tribes that have any kind of monkey usually worshiped them in some form, so why not.

Your belief , magickor, is that there is one God. Do not make the mistake of stating it as fact . We all have beliefs, and nothing more than that.
I'm not quite sure what you mean by "hero God". Have you read the Prose and Poetic Eddas concerning Thor? I think you should find that there are several stories in various lore and literature that describe Gods who help others, and could be considered "heroes".
Yes of course. Hercules, Perseus, Horus, Mithra, Baldr to name a few of the ones who walked the earth. Gods of war are considered heroes but they are immortal, and I would only consider "heroes" those who risk their life. But they are still many amazing warrior and miracle working deities throughout various cultures.
The Monkey King is based of Chinese myths, but it is still "based off" therefore not 100% truth. Much of it is fiction. Thor (as in the Marvel Comics) again is "based off" of authentic myth but is still fiction. I suggest reading into mythology. My favorite legends above all is the Arthurian legends. Now those are excellent reads and steeped in mythology.
