The Asgardians (or Aesir)were a race native to Asgard, and the supreme race of the Nine Realms. Each possessing unique supernatural powers, the Asgardians were worshipped as gods by the human Nords following a battle against the Frost Giants on Earth in which the Asgardians protected the humans and stood victorious over the Frost Giants. Norsemen and Germanic tribes used to worship the Asgardians nearly a millennium ago and that is why some of the names differ slightly like Wotan instead of Odin. Even though certain Asgardians are still interested in humanity such as Thor, the Asgardians do not have any more active worshippers or seek to have any. The Asgardians possess superhuman abilities such as super strength and superhuman endurance. An average male god can lift up to 30 tons while an average female goddess can lift up to 25 tons, but there are those that exceed these specifications. The Asgardians are also gifted with extremely long life, but are not immortal. They are also immune to all terrestrial diseases and are highly resistant to conventional forms of injury.
