Asgardians are a race of Norse deities.
Powers and Abilities
Superhuman strength: All Asgardians are superhumanly strong with the average Asgardian god being able to lift about thirty tons under optimal conditions and the average Asgardian goddess being able to lift about twenty-five tons under optimal conditions.
Superhuman speed: All Asgardians have the potential of being able to run and move at speeds much greater than the finest human athlete. Only a few Asgardians can supersede the majority of the other gods.
Superhuman stamina: The musculature of the Asgardian gods produces considerably less fatigue toxins during physical activity than the muscles of ordinary human beings. An average Asgardian god can exert themselves at peak capacity for about twenty-four hours before fatigue impairs them.
Superhumanly dense tissue: The skin, muscle, and bone tissues of Asgardian gods are about three times as dense as the same tissue of a human body, contributing to their superhuman strength and weight.
Superhuman durability: The bodies of the Asgardians are considerably more resistant to physical injury than the bodies of human beings. Asgardian gods are capable of withstanding conventional injuries, including great impact forces, exposure to temperatura and pressure extremes, and falls from great heights without sustaining physical injury.
Superhuman agility: Asgardians are more agile, coordinated, and balanced than the finest human athletes.
Superhuman reflexes: The reflexes of Asgardian gods are quicker and sharper than the finest of human athletes.
Regenerative healing factor: Despite their natural durability, it is possible for any of the Asgardians to sustain injury. However, if injured, their highly advanced metabolism enables them to recover with superhuman speed and efficiency. As with most of their other powers, the speed and extent of these powers varies from one Asgardian to another and is greater for more powerful Asgardians. A normal Asgardian can heal from having their heart removed in five minutes after the removal in addition to having their neural system continue to function normally.
Longevity: The Asgardian gods are extremely long-lived, but they are not immortal like the Olympians. They age at a much slower rate but are not immune to the effects of aging. Their bodies are immune to all known Earthly diseases and infections.
Energy manipulation: The Asgardian gods have some potential to manipulate mystical or cosmic energies for some purpose. These powers are mostly limited to changing their appearance or shape and teleporting across great distances.
Allspeak: Thanks to the Allspeak, Asgardians can communicate with and be understood by all races, no matter what language is practiced.
The Asgardians are not highly advanced in technology and, unlike many of the other pantheons, very few wield magic. The Asgardians were doomed to die and be reborn in the eternal cycle of Ragnarok, until Thor ended it, their lives bound to the Norns, Yggdrasill, Hela, and Those Who Sit Above in Shadow. Even on Midgard without Ragnarok, it has been shown that "the touch of mortality upon" the Asgardians are greater than in Asgard and, like Odin, their natural powers are weakened.
