The Almighty Johnsons is a fantasy/comedy/drama about people in New Zealand who embody ancient gods.


The Johnsons are four brothers who, on their 21st birthday, become Norse gods, although not entirely powerful.

  • Mike (Mikal): Ullr, the god of games and hunting
  • Anders: Bragi, god of poetry and persuasion
  • Ty (Tyrone): Hodor, god of winter and darkness
  • Axl: Odin, leader of the gods, war, magic and prophecy

Other characters include their parents and grandfather, other gods and goddesses, and non-deity flatmate and receptionist. Their quest is to marry Odin to the goddess Frigg, which will invest the gods with their full power. Hijinks ensue.

The third season was enabled by a fan campaign.

As of January 21, 2016, there were 817 fanworks in The Almighty Johnsons fandom on Archive Of Our Own.


The crossover pairing of Anders Johnson/John Mitchell is quite popular in the fandom.

Connections with Other Fandoms

Anders is played by Dean O'Gorman, Fíli in The Hobbit (film series), and is therefore included in Crossover fanworks with castmates, mostly Britchell (Bragi-Anders/Mitchell) with Aidan Turner's Mitchell from Being Human.
