- NO! I'll die a warrior's death! Stories will be told of this day!
- -- Sif src
The most distinguished warrior maiden in all of Asgard. Sif is known for her boldness, cunning, and weapon expertese. Few can match her in combat or in beauty. Unlike Thor, she is uninterested in the glamor and theatrics of fame, but like him, she craves the thrill of battle and the honor of serving her kingdom. 
After she, Thor and the Warriors Three incited a battle with several Jotuns, they nearly began a war between the the two races. Odin, deeply disappointed in Thor as the one most responsible, stripped him of his powers and exiled him to Earth. With Thor absent, Sif and the Warriors Three were faced with a dilemma when Loki turned his attention to wresting the throne from Odin, and journeyed to Midgard (Earth) to find Thor. When their search led them to a small New Mexico town where Thor was staying with Jane Foster, Loki sent the Destroyer after them. While Thor was powerless to battle the construct, the Warriors Three and Sif quickly engaged it, Sif leaping from a building's roof to impale the Destroyer through the back of the neck and chest, causing its apparent destruction. The Destroyer's immobility proved to be only momentary, as it revived to hurl Sif bodily away.
Sif returned to Asgard with Thor and the others after he had dealt with the Destroyer personally. She presently parted company with him when he chose to pursue his brother alone. 
Powers and AbilitiesEdit
As an Asgardian, Sif has several superhuman attributes. Sif possesses superhuman strength, speed, agility, reflexes, durability, and is extremely long-lived.
Superhuman Strength: Like all Asgardians, Sif is superhumanly strong and possesses greater physical strength than the average Asgardian female. She was able to hold her own against many stronger foes.
Superhuman Speed: Sif is capable of running and moving at speeds much greater than that of even the finest human athlete.
Superhuman Stamina: Sif's musculature produces considerably less fatigue toxins during physical activity than the musculature of a human being.
Superhuman Durability: Sif's body is much more resistant to physical harm than the body of a human being. She is capable of withstanding great impact forces from Frost Giants and the Destroyer, and exposure to extreme temperatures and pressures of Jotunheim.
Superhumanly Dense Tissue: Sif's bodily tissues are denser than the tissue of a human. As a result, Sif is actually much heavier than she appears. This increased tissue density also contributes somewhat to her physical strength.
Superhuman Longevity: Like all Asgardians, Sif ages at a rate that is much slower than that of a human being. However, Asgardians aren't completely immune to aging, as she is several hundred years old by human standards.Regenerative Healing Factor: Despite her body's resistance, Sif can be injured like any other Asgardian. However, her metabolism enables her to rapidly regenerate damaged bodily tissue with greater speed and efficiency than a human being is capable of. Injuries such as slashes and punctures can fully heal within hours, whereas broken bones can heal within a few days. However, she isn't able to regenerate severed limbs or missing organs. After Sif and the Warriors Three took a severe beating from the Destroyer, she returned to Asgard looking no worse for wear.
Sif is a formidable combatant and has received extensive training in unarmed combat and swordsmanship. Asgard's greatest warrior Thor comments that Sif proved "all wrong who scoffed at the idea of a young maiden being one of the fiercest warriors."
