God Poll 1+0: Accanax

It is clear, from the comments, that some of you are ambivalent or downright displeased with the World Tree gods. Well, those of us who are their creations, clients, and playthings sometimes feel the same way. So I will ask a poll about each one. The results, perhaps alas, are not binding.

Accanax

Status: Creator God, or, equivalently, Verb God
Domain: Destroc, the Verb "destroy"
Prime Species: Accanax alone created the Khtsoyis. It seems that this creation was not wholly satisfactory, and so, later, he and Reluu jointly created the Gormoror a few years later.
Appearance: He sits in the high sky, appearing as a clot of darkness. When he is in a good mood, it is shot through with silver filigree.
Creations: Accanax is the author of a great many monsters. Now and then, he creates a hundred new species in an afternoon. His creations are generally hasty, awkward, and ill-conceived. They are often stupid, barely fit for life, quite violent, and suffer greatly (e.g., venom bears, whose cheeks are perpetually wounded, meaning that the bears live a life of constant pain.) But they are no less dangerous for all that.
Benefices: There are plenty of things that ought to be destroyed, and Accanax is just as happy to sponsor their destruction as the destruction of anything else. In my own skyboat, we have a vast source of curses and magical troubles; Accanax has given me a great blessing for breaking curses, or will have given once I get the several weeks to make it.
Commandments: I've been given as direct a commandment from Accanax as anyone has, namely, "I like what you're doing; keep it up." He is hardly a domineering, all-controlling god.
Job: Accanax, like the other creator gods, simply maintains his Verb and creates things. The Noun Gods actually keep the universe running.
Dark Trinity? He's certainly qualified to be in the Dark Trinity.

If we are somehow able and willing to rebel and overthrow our gods -- I cannot imagine how we might become 'able', though willingness may be achievable -- what should we do with Accanax?

Bind him in an exceedingly valuable gemstone guarded in a fearsome dungeon underground fortified defensive complex, because he cannot be killed.
2(9.5%)
Send him off to other worlds to seek his fortune there.
5(23.8%)
Continue to employ him in his present capacity as a servant of the new regime.
13(61.9%)
Rebel against the other gods in his name; crown him as the supreme deity.
0(0.0%)
Other: please specify
1(4.8%)

What alternate fate would you recommend for Accanax?

What else should I ask in later polls?
