It my be too early to tell, but As far as Alexander's being tied to our 2hr ability, it may be justified - depending on the defense, number of status ailments it blocks, and duration.

Odin's, on the other hand....I dunno. If all it does is automatically kill things - and only damages HNMs - and its hampered if there are multiple enemies - that sounds as if its just not worth it as a two hour. The only real place that could be useful is in places like dynamis - but if there is a chance it can miss (and it seems like it will be high for multiple mobs) this just isnt worth it. And if his damage on HNMs is compairable to all of the other avatar's damage...there is no point to him being a 2hr only avatar.

I guess we will have to wait and see.

I'm expecting that if Odin is a damage avatar restricted to astral flow, that his damage will be very good when we need large single target damage. As it is, astral flow has limited use with avatars because it is currently focused on;

1. Doing Damage as AoE

2. Doing elemental damage that does not dimish over multiple targets

Odin is the opposite as his ability will be weaker with many targets, but if it's at it's strongest with less targets we may see ourselves having access to something we can use as a good damage 2 hour against a single enemy. Come to think about it, i wonder if they're dead set on Odin doing dark damage, or if his 2 hour ability will simply inflict physical slashing damage. That would be particularly useful as we could have a use for our 2 hour even on enemies that are not weak to magic.

Alexander goes without saying is our only defensive 2 hour ability.
