AIM was using the Fenris Wolf to research Asgardian DNA. Three of their test subjects were successfully transformed into baseline Asgardians, which in Marvel terms, gives them superhuman strength and resilience. She's on par with somebody like Sif.

I remember the time when the New Mutants went to Asgard and stayed with some of the 'normal' Asgardian folk, who were said to be stronger and more resilient than the average mortal, but not in the 'supergodly' sense apparently.

I'm assuming the AIM agent is something along those lines, but since she has the spliced genes of the Fenris wolf, I'm assuming she's almost near the pantheon level in terms of physical strength?

A normal Asgardian, just some dude you'd see in the background standing around in a village, is roughly three times tougher and stronger than a human. They've got very dense musculature, and if they're any stronger than that, it's because of magic or divine favor or something. (I think that's how it works, anyway.)

In this issue, Helen's capable of manhandling all three of the Warriors at once until Hogun decides he's had enough and knocks her silly with one hit from his mace.

Wait. Isn't Fenris the son of Loki, who is technically not a real Asgardian? Isn't Loki an unusually-small Frost Giant who was just adopted by Odin?

If so, how can Fenris be used to research Asgardian DNA?

Given that a Frost Giant managed to sire a giant wolf, I think all Asgardian DNA in general is alot more... versatile than mere mortal DNA.

Given that Loki and Angr-Boda are both accomplished shapeshifters, it's entirely possible that the wolf was conceived when they were both yeah let's not go there.

Aw, why not? I mean, Sleipnir was sired by Loki.

He's a shapeshifter. AIM wanted to figure out how to use his DNA to create hybrids, since apparently Loki could impregnate a chair if he put his mind to it.

I think I can mythologyfanwank this. Loki is Aesir (Asgardian/god) by right of blood-brotherhood. If he and Odin literally mingled blood, then his DNA has had access to Asgardian DNA and could morph accordingly.

I have often pondered why writers rule on somethings and suck on others.

I think most people only have a finite amount of awesome available to them at any given time.

Sometimes they use it knowingly and other times it's pure intstinct.

You mean writers have different strengths and weaknesses depending on the genre ;)

"More drinking is always in order!" Oh Volstagg, you scamp.
And is Skadirh a name from Norse mythology, or just a word from the old Viking languages? It sounds vaguely familiar, but...

Well, Skadi was a frost goddess/Goddess of winter who's been name-checked in a lot of FF7 fics...

Well, yeah, I've heard of her - but 'Skadirh' sounds a bit more specific.

I am LOVING this character. Slowly welcomed into Asgardian brother/sisterhood, and all fun and violent.

Not a Willingham fan, but this is very cool. I love her drunkenly dissing Hydra, and I like the Warriors Three adopting her.

That cover alone has more chemistry than 90% of all pairings ever. Or am I the only one who thinks the cover make them look five seconds away from battlefield sex?

Wait a minute. Arn't Fenris's parents both Frost Giants? If that's where she gained her power then no wonder she got so big.
