Odin appointed Idunn Keeper of the Golden Apples, whose mystical properties retard aging among the Asgardians. She has been at times noted as the only Asgardian who can pick them from the World Tree. Once, while delivering the apples to Odin, she was attacked by the Fenris Wolf disguised as a human, but saved by Haakun the Hunter.
At some point she formed a triad of goddesses with Gaea and Freyja known as the All-Mother. Following the disaster of The Serpent's attack on Asgard Odin summoned the All-Mothers to assume control in his absence.
Idunn possesses the conventional superhuman physical attributes of an Asgardian goddess.
- Allspeak: Thanks to the Allspeak she can communicate in all of the languages of the Nine Realms, Earth's dialects, and various alien languages.
Idunn can lift (press) about 25 tons.
- The story of how Idunn was attacked by the Fenris wolf would serve as one of the inspirations for the tale of Little Red Riding Hood.
