The product of Odin's dalliance with a giantess, Vidar lived outside the city of Asgard, his existence known to few. Vidar ventured into the city but once to seek redress for the slaying of his wife.

As Thor surveyed the devastation the forces of Ragnarok had done across Asgard, he came across Vidar's fields. Vidar had died fighting hordes of trolls, with spears scattered like blades of grass. A funeral pyre was ordered for his body.

Powers and AbilitiesEdit


Vidar possesses various superhuman physical attributes common to the Asgardians.

PeterAdded by Peter

Superhuman Strength: Vidar was superhumanly strong, significantly more so than most other Asgardians. Whereas the average Asgardian male could lift about 30 tons, Vidar was strong enough to lift 75 tons[1].

Superhuman Speed: Vidar, despite his great size, could run and move at speeds beyond the physical capability of even the finest human athlete.

Superhuman Stamina: Vidar's musculature produced considerably less fatigue toxins during physical activity than the musculature of a human being. He could physically exert himself at peak capacity for about 24 hours before the build up of fatigue toxins in his blood stream began to impair him.

Superhumanly Dense Tissue: The skin, muscle, and bone tissues of an Asgardian's body are about 3 times denser than the same tissue of a human body, with Vidar being no exception. This contributed somewhat to his superhuman strength and weight.

Superhuman Agility: Despite his great size, Vidar's agility, balance, and bodily coordination were enhanced to levels beyond the natural physical limits of even the finest human athlete.

Superhuman Reflexes: Vidar's reflexes were similarly enhanced and were superior to those of the finest human athlete.

Superhuman Durability: Vidar's body was much harder and more resistant to physical injury than the body of a human being. Vidar could withstand high caliber bullets, powerful impact forces, falls from great heights, exposure to temperature and pressure extremes, and powerful blasts of energy without sustaining physical injury.

Extended Longevity: Like all Asgardians, Vidar aged at a considerably slower pace than a human being. However, the aging process of Asgardians wasn't completely halted, as it had been in some other god pantheons. Vidar was also immune to the effects of all known Earthly diseases and infections.

Regenerative Healing Factor: Despite his resistance to injury, Vidar could be injured. However, his godly lifeforce and metabolism allowed him to regenerate damaged tissue much faster and more extensively than a human is capable of. However, he couldn't regenerate missing limbs or organs without the aid of powerful magical assistance.

Vidar after Ragnarok, as described by Odin's Eye
FarlstendoiroAdded by Farlstendoiro


  • In Norse myths, Vidar was the god of vengeance, and his role in Ragnarok is that he is supposed to kill Fenris the Wolf with his bare hands, after it had killed Odin. "He will press one foot on Fenrir's bottom jaw, and will take hold of his other jaw and tear the wolf apart. He is one of the gods that will rule the new world when it is created." [3]
