Search for 'Perun (Marvel)' on Amazon
Perun is The Russian God, and as such, has powers and abilities associated with such beings. These include Superhuman Strength (Class 100), endurance, stamina and durability. He can also command and channel lightning and direct it through his weapons.
In the mainstream Marvel Comics universe, Perun is the name of a fictional Russian superhero who was once a member of 'The People's Protectorate' alongside Fantasma, The Red Guardian, Vostok and Crimson Dynamo.
He wears a helmet and red cloak similar to those of Thor. He had long hair and a beard, with a great deal of body hair. He uses a large axe, and later a hammer and sickle, which he uses to focus and direct his electrical powers. Perun is an avatar of the Slavic god Perun inhabiting the body of Valeri Sovloyev.
Perun and his team come into conflict with the Hulk and the Pantheon over the kidnapping of Igor, a Russian spy. The Hulk believes Igor to have been responsible for his, the Hulk's, creation. Ivan is put through a re-creation of the incident, which causes great distress. The Hulk easily defeats Perun and takes his weapons, using them to temporarily entrap Vostok. The confrontation ends in a stalemate, for Ivan had gone mad with guilt and nobody was sure what to do.
