Gunna Sijurvald was born of an Asgardian mother and a Magzi troll father who had captured her. Even though she looks Asgardian, she was raised by the trolls. When the Asgardians captured Gunna, along with a group of Magzi trolls, they named her Gunna after her mother, and tried to introduce her to Asgardian culture with litle success. She escaped with the Troll after Asgard was destroyed during the events of Siege.
When Luke Cage lead the Thunderbolts on their first mission to the Raft, they run into the young Gunna, who attacks and disables Ghost suit with her axe. Ghost tries calling for help, as the attacking girl wearing troll skin is about to slice him in two. Luckily for Ghost, Crossbones hits her in the side with one shot, causing her to fall down. Cage reprimands Crossbones for the seemingly lethal action, though the latter defends that he simply used a dart to penetrate the girl's ear.
Later at the Raft, Valkyrie identifies the girl as Gunna, an Asgardian who was captured by the Magzi Trolls. She was locked in Asgard along with the rest of the Magzi in hopes of rehabilitating her, before the trolls escaped after the eternal realm's fall. Valkyrie wants to take Gunna home but Warden Walker objects, stating that she and her troll brethren killed and apparently ate U.S. citizens and therefore, Gunna will stay at the Raft until a court trial could be enacted. Valkyrie retorts that if the siege on Asgard never happened, then the trolls would never have been released. Luke Cage mediates the dispute, stating that they will leave the decision to Commander Steve Rogers. Valkyrie accepts the proposal and agrees to let Gunna remain in the Raft until then. As both Valkyrie and Walker depart, Cage advises Songbird to orientate Gunna for the duration of her stay and more importantly, teach her not to eat anybody.
During a prison riot, in which the power was knocked out, Songbird is bttacked by a group of female prisoners. Troll, after bending the bars of her cage, runs out to save her while screaming in broken English. When Moonstone, who earlier just left Songbird, runs out and claims to save the day, Songbird points out that she did nothing while Gunna saved the day.
While at lunch, the other female prisoners criticize her eating habits and describe her like an unbroken house pet. When they jokingly ask if she was a cannibal, she shocks the prisoners with a deadpan "Aye." .
When a trio of male prisoners tease Gunna from behind the forcefield separating the men's courtyard from the women's. Gunna tries pouncing on them, only for the forcefield to block her way. Warden Walker and the prison guards show up to diffuse the situation and discipline the prisoners. Once it is settled, one of the guards confides in Walker that Gunna is too powerful for a juvenile facility but too young for the Raft.
A new Thunderbolt team is drafted in case the primary team dies on a mission, with Songbird selected as leader. Therefore, she and John Walker go around the Raft and select potential recruits.
Now on the Beta team of the Thunderbolts, Gunna is given back her original clothing, consisting of fur from an asgardian animal and her weapon an axe that can cut threw anything. On their first mission to Eastern Europe she shows loyalty to the team, saving Boomerang from being eaten by zombies.
World War II
Troll as well as the rest of the team up in the 1940's due to time travel. She promptly goes hunting. After a brief skirmish with some Nazi's, she starts to hang out with Mr. Hyde. Troll's war axe is also a pivotal tool for the Thunderbolts in the present trying to track her through time.
Powers and AbilitiesEdit
Gunna is a Troll/Asgardian Hybrid and possesses all of the various superhuman attributes common among the Asgardians, but but fights with the savage ferocity of the Magzi Trolls.
Superhuman Strength: Like all Asgardians, Gunna is superhumanly strong and possesses greater physical strength than the average Asgardian female.
Superhuman Speed: Gunna is capable of running and moving at speeds much greater than that of even the finest human athlete.
Superhuman Stamina: Gunna's musculature produces considerably less fatigue toxins during physical activity than the musculature of a human being. She can exert herself at peak capacity for about 24 hours before fatigue begins to impair her.
Superhuman Durability: Gunna's body is much more resistant to physical harm than the body of a human being. She is capable of withstanding great impact forces, exposure to temperature and pressure extremes, powerful energy blasts, and high caliber bullets without sustaining injury.
Superhumanly Dense Tissue: Gunna's bodily tissues have about 3 times the density as the bodily tissue of a human. As a result, Gunna is actually much heavier than she appears. This increased tissue density also contributes somewhat to her physical strength.
Superhuman Longevity: Like all Asgardians, Gunna ages at a rate that is much slower than that of a human being. However, Asgardians aren't completely immune to aging, as some other god pantheons are.
Gunna is a formidable combatant and has recieved extensive training in unarmed combat and axe weilding.
Mystic Axe: Gunna uses an Asgardian axe which is capable of cutting through a tree in a single stroke, and can strike an intangible opponent.
