In the comics, this is thanks to something they call: All-Tongue or AllSpeak: "When Thor speaks with the All-Tongue anyone who hears him will hear him speak their native language in their hearts" (from Thor's wiki page) In the absence of further information, it seems likely to assume the same is true of Marvel Movie Asgardians as well - though given the ...

That symbol represent the enchantment done by Odin: But the symbol disappear/submerge after the enchantment done as you can see in video below too: In comics, it was written enchantment: Film version replaced it with Triquetra on one side. Even original Mjollnir is depicted with similar symbol to from Norse mythology ...

Short (and meta) answer - and this is the same answer as for some similar questions on movie gore - the MPAA rating system is whacked. Visible gore, i.e. blood, tends to get an R rating, which cuts down on the allowed audience. There could be whole articles written on the nonsensical nature of the MPAA's rules for assigning various ratings, and what ...

According to Keen's answer on "How did Tesseract come to Earth from Asgard?", the Tesseract was lost during the war between the Asgardians and the Frost Giants that took place on Earth, and it was later found by humans and hidden away in Norway. I did not spot any visual of the Tesseract in the Frost Giants war scene of Thor, or during the whole film except ...

From this article referencing this Reddit post (emphasis mine): According to the Redditor, Russo confirmed Valkyrie did survive Thanos’ ambush. The director did not say how, but he did say a portion of the Asgardians also survived. Russo said escape pods ferried those survivors away from the battle, giving the Asgardian race the chance to escape ...

In-universe, the symbol doesn't have any specific meaning; it's one of many Asgardian runes that we see decorating the props. This one seems to be closely linked to Odin's magic, which would fit with it's presumed historical origin as a Nordic rune. Norse culture used a number of these three-lobe style icons. The Triquetra, in particular, appears to be ...

Varies The average Asgardian is capable of lifting 10 tons without any specialized augmentation. Though this note has changed depending on which version of the Marvel Handbook you read. Newer ones indicate the average Asgardian male can lift 30 tons and the average female 25 tons due to their enhanced physical and skeletal structures. Some warriors (like ...

They are not related at all. Consider them beings who share a name, perhaps some behaviors, or historical references but beyond that, each is a unique representation of the Norse mythos and its attendant deities. In recent decades, the Norse mythology has experienced a resurgence in modern media because: Most people only have a passing knowledge of them. ...

A year is a year is a year (in the MCU at least) In Thor: Ragnarok, we see "year" referenced several times to multiple beings without any clarification as to what frame of reference was being used. But perhaps the most telling was from the Grandmaster himself: "Time works real different around these parts. On any other world I would be millions of years ...

At one point during Avengers: Infinity War, Thor says that half of his people are dead (which makes sense since that's Thanos' whole m/o). Thor: Thanos already has the Power Stone because he stole it last week, when he decimated Xandar. He stole the Space Stone from me when he destroyed my ship and slaughtered half my people. The Time and Mind Stones are ...

You don't even need the comics to find one answer, in the first series of Agents of SHIELD there is the Berserker staff which imbues its bearer with supernatural strength alongside amplifying rage and similar negative emotions. It differs from Mjölnir in that there doesn't seem to be any magical requirements to be able to wield it, although the mental ...

Since the Marvel Cinematic Universe has not confirmed or denied the existence of Idunn, the goddess in charge of the legendary Golden Apples of Immortality, we have nothing to confirm the true nature of the MCU's Asgardians "immortality". Given Asgardian superhuman levels of resistance to injury, their incredible physical stamina and innate regenerative ...

Short answer: Magic. Long answer: The Asgardian culture has a very advanced technology, married with magic. Thor remarked that they considered technology and magic to be "one and the same thing." This is the same culture that created the hammer Mjolnir, the Tesseract, and Bifrost the Rainbow Bridge. They also must have a power source of some kind, thought ...

TL;DR - the average Asgardian is about as strong as the average Kree, both of whom are far stronger and more durable than any human could ever be. Being as this is tagged with the marvel-cinematic-universe tag, and all the examples given are from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, I'm going to answer from that perspective. It's also worth noting that the films ...

Marvel has never given the planets or dimensions of origin of any of its "divine" beings. They are and have been depicted as entities/aliens descended somehow from the Earthforces called Gaea and Atum, and who take on the guises of "gods" during their early interactions with humanity. All we are know is the Asgardians and other deities live in nearby ...

It was hinted as far back as Thor #300 (October 1980) that the Asgardians might not be gods but god-like aliens who resided in nearby dimensions, attempting to protect the Earth from extra-terrestrial threats such as the cosmic space-gods, the unknowable Celestials. The first gathering of the Council of Godheads, to combat the imminent threat of the alien ...

This has been confirmed upon in Avengers: Endgame, in short the Asgardians, presumably half of them, escaped to Earth and created "New Asgard". Of the half of the Asgardians that survived the named characters we see are:

Yes. A lot of them. There are even additional hammers from Thor-Like characters. Thunderstrike has a mace and Beta Ray Bill has its own hammer. It is called "Stormbreaker".

According to the marvel-movies wikia The Tesseract has the capability to open rifts through space and time. Which is how the Red Skull met his end and how Loki transported himself and later, the Chitauri, to Earth through a portal. The device is merely a container, or something to focus the space-time manipulation ability of the Tesseracts. Is exact ...

As far as we know, the only people who know that Loki is not the natural-born son of Odin are Odin, Frigga, and Thor. Even Thor's close friends, who end up effectively rebelling against Loki in Thor, do so because they disagree with his actions. At no point do they seem to challenge the fact that he is the rightful heir to the throne, after Odin and Thor. ...

Everyone in Asgard knows. It's common knowledge by the time Thor: Ragnarok takes place. Actor Odin: Loki, my boy...‘Twas many moons ago I found you on a frost-bitten battlefield. On that day, I did not yet see in you Asgard’s savior. No. You were merely a little blue baby icicle... that melted this old fool’s heart.

In The Avengers movie Fury is doing just what you say: using the Tesseract to create weapons that will be powerful enough to fight the extraterrestrial forces that they have encountered(namely Loki and friends). One would have to assume that since that was the purpose of his development that they would have been powerful enough to "effectively combat an ...

From looking around a bit the change in the comics appears to have first been shown in Loki Vol 2 Issue 4 which was released 16/03/2011 which is before Thor came out in 27/04/2011. Of course though the casting for Heimdall was already known by then. As such the change to dark skin was probably done because of the casting of Idris for Heimdall. An in universe ...

As far as we are aware, Asgardians do not use any form of magic. The problem we have attempting to answer this question is that as of right now, the only "magic" we have seen in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is that which the Asgardians use, which is explicitly a form of extremely advanced technology - so advanced that is appears magical to humans (and ...

I suspect it was a collaborative effort on the part of SHIELD, the Avengers brain bank of Tony Stark and Dr. Banner, with the initial development on the part of Dr. Erik Selvig. Let's think of this the other way. Who else COULD manufacture the technology that would allow them to harness the Tesseract/Cosmic Cube's energy while using the information gathered ...

Also, you can see the arm bones in the wrist, and they appear to be glowing orangish-yellow, maybe from heat? So I just assumed that Loki's blade had some sort of magical aspect to it. If it was a super-heated blade, it would have cauterized the vessels and arteries

The guy who wrote the mask pitched the idea with marvel first before running them on dark horse comics so assuming this it is indeed intended to be the same loki

In the comics, no. There Asgard uses a mix of both science and magic intertwined to get the best (and worst) effects from both sources. And magic is a distinct and separate force from the laws of physics (as flimsy as they are in the Marvel universe). The Cinematic Universe however has so far made the explicit distinction that all magic is sufficiently ...

Valkyrie survived both Thanos' attack on the Asgardian ship as well as his "Snap", according to the actor who portrayed her, Tessa Thompson. Q. Did Valkyrie disintegrate? A. No, she’s in one piece and THRIVING Via Twitter: Edited for legibility
