Hogun the Grim is an Asgardian warrior and member of the Warriors Three and an ally to Thor ever since the thunder god's youth. They first met when the Warriors Three joined Thor's expedition to restore the Odinsword that had become cracked.
Unlike most Asgardians, he is not an Aesir, but stems from a land conquered long ago by Mogul of the Mystic Mountain. He was a very quiet man, combined however with a flaring temper.
Hogun was one of the first victims to die. But with the rest of the Warriors Three, he was resurrected from one of three African guards by Thor.
Powers and AbilitiesEdit
Hogun possesses various superhuman attributes common to all Asgardians.
Superhuman Strength: Like all Asgardians, Hogun is superhumanly strong. His strength is somewhat greater than the average male Asgardian and he can lift about 35 tons.
Superhuman Speed: Hogun can run and move at speeds superior to that of the finest human athlete.
Superhuman Stamina: Hogun's advanced musculature generates considerably less fatigue toxins than the musculature of a human. He can physically exert himself at peak capacity for about 24 hours before fatigue begins to impair him, which is about average for an Asgardian.
Superhumanly Dense Tissue: Hogun's skin, muscle, and bone tissues have about 3 times the density as the bodily tissue of a human being. This contributes, at least somewhat, to Hogun's superhuman strength and his weight.
Superhuman Durability: Hogun's body is much harder and more resistant to injury than the body of a human. Hogun can withstand powerful impact forces, falls from great heights, and exposure to temperature and pressure extremes without sustaining injury.
Extended Longevity: Like all other Asgardians, Hogun ages at an extremely slow pace compared to humans, though he isn't immortal in the same sense as some other god pantheons. Nonetheless, he is still immune to all known Earthly diseases and infections.
AbilitiesHogun is an excellent hand to hand combatant and horseman. He is also an expert in all forms of Asgardian weaponry, particularly the mace.
