Hermod possesses the conventional superhuman physical attributes of an Asgardian male (“god”), enabling him to life (press) about 30 tons. Besides the conventional superhuman physical attributes of an Asgardian male, Hermod possesses the ability to move at speeds many times greater than an ordinary Asgardian can.
Very little is known of Hermod except that he is a relatively young Asgardian. Noted for his fleetness, he is occasionally employed by Odin as a messenger. His most celebrated mission took him to Hel, the Asgardian realm of the dead, in order to ask Hela how Balder might be revived.
Because of the events of Ragnarok, Hermod is believed to have suffered the same fate that befell the rest of the Asgardians.
