Susanoo

The Shinto god of sea and storms, Susanoo was born when his father washed his nose, which means that essentially he's made of booger. Even so, he's one deadly snot-nugget. Susanoo has a crazy temper, and he often goes on prolonged "smiting" benders. He was banished from Heaven for throwing a cow at his sister (no, literally), and immediately began slicing up dragons on Earth with his magic sword, Totsuka-no-Tsurugi (also known as the "Ten-Fists Sword" or the "Heavenly Wing Slash"). The weapon is conveniently multi-purpose and can easily slay gods, monsters, and — sorry, Superman —Kryptonians.
