    Hermod Using His Speed

    Hermod is an incredible young Asgardian God who is known for his unmatched speed. He is employed under Odin as his messenger. One of his greatest missions was to travel all the way to hell in order to speak to Hela. He was tasked to gather information on how to revive Balder the Brave

    He also takes form of a mortal named Howie Baker. In this form, He wears an enchanted headband as well as Rollerblades. The enchanted headband that he wears gives him superhuman speed.


    Like the rest of the Asgardian Gods, Hermod possesses mystical abilities such as invulnerability, healing abilities, enhanced stamina and life longevity. His speed though is second to none as he could easily surpass that of any superhuman, mutant or individual. It is in these speeds that he can pass through dimensions and worlds with the greatest of ease.
