Godstorm is a name for the leader and most powerful member of a race of Asgard-based sentient storms that dwell in the Cragmouth cave when not raging in the skies. The storms typically served the Asgardian thunder god, Thor Odinson, happily granting him their power whenever he requested. Circa 912 AD, Thor's mischief god adoptive brother, Loki Laufeyson, plotted to use Godstorm as an instrument of vengeance for humiliation at Thor's hands. Traveling to Cragmouth, the forbidden dwelling of the storms, Loki lied and tricked Godstorm into believing Thor had no regard for the storms, thinking of them only as slaves. During a battle between Thor's cherished Vikings and the renegade and bloodthirsty Berserkir tribe, Thor called on the mightiest of Cragmouth's storms to turn the tide of battle in favor of the Vikings. Godstorm heeded the call, but Loki further encouraged Godstorm's anger against the thunder god, appealing to its pride and vanity, and it turned against Thor, nearly defeating him in battle. Eventually, however, Thor regained control of Godstorm, using its power to generate a whirlpool that vanquished the Berserkirs. To punish it for its rebellion, Thor trapped Godstorm beneath the sea floor near Oslo, Norway.
Powers and AbilitiesEdit
PowersAn immensely powerful, sentient storm cloud, Godstorm can generate lightning, thunder, powerful winds and presumably other atmospheric conditions. At his peak, his weather control surpassed Thor's, though his level following his recovery from Loki's draining his energies is uncertain.
Godstorm can adopt humanoid form, projecting powerful lightning bolts and releasing tendrils from his hands to wrap around and immobilize his foes. Godstorm's mystic, cloud-like nature renders him resistant to aging, disease, and most physical assaults.
