Known Powers

Being with god-like strength, speed, agility, stamina, durability, an immunity to all known diseases and environments capable of powerful mental projections not bound by space or dimension.


A master of the mystical arts with abilities to take any form including other gods (although without the ability to mimic their special attributes), animate inanimate objects, travel through space and across dimensions, perceive occurrences in remote locations through astral projection and cast a wide variety of other spells.


Note: Odin's powers are dependent upon the dimension of Asgard and the longer he spends time away from his realm the weaker he becomes. Odin is also dependent upon an annual coma-like rest known as the Odinsleep. After such a period of slumber his vital energies are restored.

Origin

Mythology tells of an age past when gods and giants were said to rule over the nine worlds. From beneath the ice of Niffleheim emerged the first of the Norse gods, Buri, who sired Bor, who in turn sired three sons Villi, Ve and Odin. The three brothers lead the fledgling gods against the Frost Giants slaying their leader Ymir and using his corpse to create the cosmos.


Most likely the Asgardians originated from an alien race of beings that had evolved to a state that found its form in the beliefs of other living beings, the first Asgardian was a lame story teller from an unknown Nordic village, who would join with the aliens and became the father of the Norse gods, Odin.
