Wasn't she the leader of the Valkyrie before being turned into a monster?

Classic Literature [Fiction]: Grendel is the creature that Beowulf fights [no spoilers].

Comics [Dark Horse]: Grendel is several different vigilante-type characters, Hunter Rose [pictured above] is my favorite, and recently returned to comics.

Sex [Position] : Dangling from the ceiling by one arm is called the Grendel. [LOL]

Grendel is from the poem Beowulf.

Epic poem, right?

But, yea, I read the book Grendel for senior english a couple of years ago. He was a monster that fought Beowulf.

I've heard of the character, but never read the poem. There's a bar in Harvard Sq. in Cambridge MA called Grendel's Den. I never really got the reference until I saw the movie.

Hunter Rose is by far superior to both Grendel and Beowulf

He went one on one vs batman and gave him a hard time

And not to meantion beast he fought

God of vengeance possessing body of a shaman who was immortal and looked like giant werewolf
