Quote1 I don't want to get married! I want adventure, and excitement! I want what lies out there, beyond the far horizon! Quote2
-- Sigrid

The events of Sigrid's early life have not been recorded.

As an adult, Sigrid had grown tired of waiting to be married off, instead longing to sail alongside the young men of the village in raids and battle. After being ridiculed by Ragnar the Dreamy, one of the men from the voyage crew, Sigrid was left behind in the village, much to her chagrin. While lamenting over her predicament to her unsympathetic father, Sigrid vanished into thin air, transported to the limbo-like dimension where "time flows like a river".[2]

Sigrid soon learned that she had been transported to New York City in the year 2003[3] by Dr. Strange in order to help Thor defeat ancient Viking warrior Harald Jaekelsson. Sigrid further learned that she was was chosen for the task, along with Sir Magnus and Erik Lonnroth, because they were the distant descendants of a Norse wise man from the town of Lakstad, who had haphazardly cursed Jaekelsson and his Viking crew with a rune stone, which had left the Vikings unable to die. According to Strange's reasoning, since the blood of the wise man had powered the rune curse, the descendants of his bloodline should be able to counter the curse's power.[4]

While Magnus and Sigrid were on board with the plan, Erik found the entire story doubtful, and questioned if he was dreaming or drunk. After discussing the plan, Sigrid and Magnus convinced Erik that the possibility of magic Vikings was not that far-fetched, reminding the pilot that he traveled the skies in an "eagle of iron". Seeing their points, and the horrors the Vikings were inflicting on the citizens of New York City, Erik agreed to fight. Contributing her blood to a magical brew whipped up by Dr. Strange, Sigrid took the potion, and headed out into the city.[3]

While Erik attacked Jaekelsson and his flying longboat near the Woolworth building, Thor, Sigrid and Magnus took on Jaekelsson's Vikings on the ground.[3] After three warriors made easy work of Jaekelsson's Vikings, Magnus and Sigrid questioned Thor as to Jaekelsson's whereabouts. Before they could spot him, Jaekelsson appeared behind Thor, and ran him through with his broadsword. Rushing to Thor's aid, Sigrid was bested by Jaekelsson, taking a blow to the face and falling in to some nearby bushes. Sigrid regained her composure just in time to see Thor launch Jaekelsson's body into orbit.[5]

After saying her goodbyes to the rest of her comrades, Sigrid was sent back to her own time by Dr. Strange.[5]

The Rivers of Time show that Sigrid eventually died in combat, having been impaled by a multitude of spears. She was also shown to have entered Valhalla, the Norse realm of heroes, upon her death, along with Magnus and Erik.[5]



Strength level

Sigrid appears to have an elevated strength level. After he insulted her, Sigrid punched a fellow villager, Ragnar the Dreamy, with enough force to sever the optical nerve in his left eye and remove it from its socket.[2] She has also shown enough strength to completely cleave a full-grown man in half, from skull to groin, with one swing of her battle axe.[5]
