Living in ancient Viking
times, as a tall and powerful woman, Sigrid always wished to engage in battle and combat and raids. However as a girl such behavior and wishes brought her much mocking and teasing from many of the men from her village. Even her father seemed unsupportive of Sigrid's dreams of being a warrior. The sorcerer supreme Doctor Strange
and thunder god Thor
identify her as a descendant of an old man, who once performed powerful rune blood magic, and as such it allowed Sigrid to circumvent effects of his magic. Essentially as a punishment the old man cursed a group of vikings with immortality, and their sudden appearance in modern day New York as well as extremely aggressive violent behavior created a need for warriors that could stand up to them. Sigrid was such a warrior. She is paired with Magnus of the Danes
and World War 2 pilot Erik Loonroth.
A kind soul, Sigrid is more than happy to aid against the fight with Harald Jaekelsson
and his many cursed vikings, merely for the fact that they are killing and slaughtering children. Despite the massive differences in eras, she appears to get on quite well with Magnus, Erik and Thor, striking up a close bond with her fellow warriors.
Created by Garth Ennis
and Glenn Fabry,
Sigrid is a Marvel
comics character who first appears in Thor Vikings
