Brunnhilde the Valkyrie possesses superhuman strength and can lift (press) 45 tons. (The average Asgardian female can lift about 25 tons. Brunnhilde is the strongest known Valkyrie.)
Brunnhilde the Valkyrie possesses the conventional attributes of an Asgardian woman ("goddess"). Like all Asgardians she is extremely long lived (although not immortal like the Olympians), superhumanly strong, immune to all Earthly diseases, and resistant to conventional injury. (Asgardian flesh and bones are about three times as dense as similar human tissue, contributing to all Asgardian superhuman strength and weight ) Brunnhilde’s Asgardian metabolism gives her far greater than human endurance at all physical activities: she can exert peak strength for an hour before fatigue impairs her ability level.
Like all Valkyries, Brunnhilde can perceive and sense the coming of Death. She can see a "deathglow" surrounding a person who is in serious danger of dying, although most Asgardians and human beings cannot see the glow. A person surrounded by the deathglow might still be saved from dying (until he or she meets his or her inevitable end at some later time under different circumstances).
Brunnhilde can transport herself and a dying or dead person from the Earth dimension to an otherdimensional realm of the dead, just by willing herself to do so. She can also return through an act of will.
Brunnhilde the Valkyrie has had extensive training in unarmed combat swordplay, and horseback riding. Her natural fighting ability is unsurpassed among Asgardian women, and is perhaps equalled only by Sif.
Brunnhilde the Valkyrie employs two weapons: an unnamed iron spear and the enchanted sword, Drayonfang. An Oriental wizard named Kahji-Da was said to have carved the sword from the tusk of an extradimensional dragon. The sword eventually passed into the possession of the Ancient One, who in turn gave it to his disciple Doctor Strange. Strange awarded the sword to the Valkyrie after she had returned the current Black Knights Ebony Blade, which she had been using, to its rightful owner. Dragonfang is virtually indestructible.
Brunnhilda the Valkyrie rides the artificially mutated winged horse Aragorn a gift from the current Black Knight.
