Is Bran essentially a god?

Now stop me if this has been done already.
But, I've been wondering, see I've honestly avoided season 6 until a few days ago, exams are over, I realized the books are a ways off, so I just accepted and dove head first. The series is still great.

Anyway, but Bran. Right, the three eyed raven, and the origins of Hodor, and why he says Hodor.
It seems like Bran's abilities transcend time. So I'm just wondering about that. You know, if he's, essentially, a god.

okay, but then, what exactly is he? What exactly is the three eyed raven? I thought it was just a skin changer. Clearly, it's not. I mean... Just "no" though?

Well, we can't say he's definitively something, that's up to GRRM. He is a seer, he can see back and forth in time, much like oracles. He is probably just a very strong seer, he can skinchange and (in specific locations) look back in time.

I'm on the line that Bran is Darth Vader... :D

I mean, i think he is the "Evil That Must Be" for the 7 Kingdoms to unite. As Vader was the Balance of the Force, Bran is the "creator" of the Night King, so as to Westerosi people gather under a common banner: fighting the White Walkers.

He heard that story from Tata (S1E2 i think) and simply believed it was true. He's fate is linked to Brynden Rivers (i think it has to be some reincarnation shit...) then he went back and forced the history to became true, like with Hodor.

I know that's paradoxical shit in it, but... it's my 50 cents. I rather prefer than Bran being a maimed Doctor X on wheelchair being a saviour. There are too many heroes.
