Early Life

Beowulf is a powerful warrior who hailed from ancient Britain. He traveled around Scandinavia and other viking territories on various quests and adventures in the 6th century AD.[citation needed]


He came to the aid of the Danish king Hrothgar, whose hall was raided each night by the hideous man-eating monster Grendel. Beowulf slayed Grendel, then Grendel's angry mother, and ruled as king of the Geats.[2]


Beowulf and an army of Vandals arrived in Vanaria and soon found himself rescuing a woman who was tied to a tree, a sacrifice for the "Ghost-Beast". They killed the creature and Beowulf and his men were led to the king as heroes, but they soon turned to looting. Beowulf ended up killing the king and taking over the kingdom. His rule was soon challenged with the return of the creature he had thought he had been killed, but who became corporeal and then disappear into the "Land of Shadows" at will. Once the creature has killed enough of the Vandals, Beowulf is overpowered and captured by Vanarians, who then tied him to a tree as a sacrifice. Eventually, Beowulf and the Ghost-Beast battled, with Beowulf winning only to find that he himself was actually a ghost, killed by a poisoned ring that had belonged to the former king.[3]

He later somehow became an immortal warrior living on the British Isles.[1]

Modern Era

Beowulf (Earth-616) from Civil War II Gods of War Vol 1 2 001

Beowulf was resting at his home on the coast of Ireland when he was contacted by Hercules on his mobile for a meeting of the "Gods of War". He brought them to New York City to battle the Uprising Storm. It was there he was reunited with Theseus a fellow warrior, but the two had a antagonistic relationship. Theseus liked to refer to him as "Wulfie". But before the meeting could end the Uprising Storm attacked. Beowulf battled Catastrophobia but was no match for the new god. Theseus gloated after shooting Catastrophobia with a rifle believing he saved Wulfie's life, but the new god just stood back up.[1]
