Heimdall had the typical powers of an Asgardian god, including superhuman strength, stamina, and durability. He also possessed superhuman senses, most notably his vision and hearing. His senses were said to be so acute that he could hear sap running through trees and see events occurring miles away. Heimdall also briefly possessed the Odinpower, which granted him the power to channel cosmic energies.

Heimdall, guardian of the Rainbow Bridge to Asgard. Heimdall, the eternally vigilant. Heimdall the immovable.

*** ORIGIN ***
Heimdall was born gifted with senses so acute that they border on the extrasensory. An Asgardian, he proved himself an extraordinary warrior. With frequent invasion and war brought to Asgard from Storm Giants and Frost Giants among other threats Odin would seek a guard for the Bifrost bridge. Due to his natural gifts of vision, sight, and hearing, Heimdall was appointed as guardian of Asgard's Bifrost Bridge by Odin, after fierce competition from fellow Asgardian warriors Agnar the Fierce and Gotron the Agile. Both of whom were also interested for the duty of guarding the Bifrost. Heimdall is the brother of Sif and frequent ally and friend to Thor. He is a highly respected and standing Asgardian, occasionally even serving as temporary ruler of Asgard.

Not only has Heimdall served as sentry of the Bifrost bridge, but he has also been active as an agent for Odin. Heimdall played a large role in locating and gathering several mortals who would go on to be a part of the Young Gods, new super beings that would be used to pacify the Celestials judgement of Earth. Heimdall would specifically gather Chi Lo, Carter Dylam and Jason Kimball otherwise known as Harvest, Bright Sword and Genii respectively. After the powerful entity Surtur defeated Heimdall and destroyed the Bifrost, Heimdall would even briefly romance Enchantress, but would eventually return to his stand as the guardian of Bifrost upon its reconstruction. Heimdall would also take part in a rescue mission to save his sister Sif, as well as stand in for Odin as ruler of Asgard when the All Father required rest.


Heimdall was the brother of the warrior Sif. For ages, he stood as the guardian of Asgard's rainbow bridge, defending the city's gates from any intruders, and was one of the most trusted servants of Odin. When Asgard was invaded by the fire demon Surtur, Heimdall attempted to defend the gates, but was overcome, and the Rainbow Bridge was destroyed. No longer needing to be stationary, Heimdall spent more time in Asgard, and became close to Amora the Enchantress, who was soon infatuated with him. When Odin returned to Asgard after Surtur's defeat, he gave a portion of his power to Heimdall to rebuild the Rainbow Bridge, and Heimdall resumed his duties.

Shortly afterwards, when Odin was about to enter his Odinsleep, he passed the Odinpower on to Heimdall to rule Asgard until he awoke. Heimdall had to deal with a major crisis in the life of Thor, as Thor had been banished into the subconsciousness of the mortal Eric Masterson, who had assumed Thor's responsibilities. Sif was determined to find the real Thor, and her determination drove a wedge between her and Heimdall. When Karnilla conspired with Loki to rule Asgard by having Odin awaken with Loki's soul possessing him, Heimdall was branded a traitor and banished to the Dream Dimension, where he was saved from the demon Nightmare by Amora. Eric Masterson helped restore Odin and later Thor as well, but Heimdall and Amora drifted apart when Amora realized that his duty to Asgard was greater than his love for her.
When Odin cast the Asgardians into the guises of mortals to protect them from a false Ragnarok, Heimdall became Donald Velez, and joined the other "Lost Gods" in attempting to rediscover who they were and battling the Egyptian death-god Seth. Heimdall and the others regained their true forms and defeated Seth just as Asgard was attacked by the Dark Gods, and they were all taken prisoner. They were finally rescued by Thor. Recently, Asgard was struck by another Ragnarok, one from which there was no seeming reversal. Heimdall perished in battle defending his people.

It has been revealed that Thor has broken the cycle of Ragnarok, the end of all things that has seemingly come to Asgard many times. Heimdall, along with the others of Asgard, have been reborn on Earth yet again. A new version of the city has been established in Oklahoma.

Thor traveled to New Orleans to start his journey of finding the missing gods. After a confrontation with Iron Man, he encounters a man named Ezra, keeping vigil over a bridge. Realizing who he really is, Thor releases Heimdall from within the mortal. Heimdall was drawn to Ezra due to them both feeling angry and helpless due to the fact that neither of them could stop the destruction of their cities, New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina and Asgard during Ragnarok. Heimdall has now joined Thor in the new Asgard.

Heimdall was created by Stan Lee, Jack Kirby and Larry Lieber in 1962 based on the Norse mythological deity Heimdallr. Heimdall first appeared in Journey into Mystery #85 released in 1962.

First Appearance: Journey Into Mystery (1952) #85
