Aragorn (Marvel)(01 - Valkyrie's Steed)
Real Name: Aragorn
Search for 'Aragorn (Marvel)(01 - Valkyrie's Steed)' on Amazon


Powers:
Aragorn can fly by means of various adaptations given him through artificial mutation. the most prominent of these are his wings, which span eighteen and a half feet from wingtip to wingtip.

Aragorn's entire anatomy has been adapted to flying. His bones are hollower than a normal horse's, making him weigh less than a normal horse of his size would. His body is virtually devoid of fat, possessing greater proportionate muscle mass than human. His eyes are specially adapted to be able to withstand high speed winds which would hurt the average equine eye. He possesses a special membrane in his respiratory system enabling him to extract oxygen from the air at high velocity or at high altitudes.

Aragron flies by flapping his wings, creating enough lift to hold aloft at least 2000 pounds; in other words, he can support aloft his own weight, that of the Valkyrie (who, as an Asgardian goddess, weighs more than an ordinary human of her size and build: 475 pounds), and other passengers as well. Aragorn can fly at speeds ranging up to 125 miles per hour. He can fly at his top speed for about one hour before needing to rest. Though he generally flies beneath the height of the clouds (6500 feet), Aragorn can reach a height of 10,000 feet with little effort.
Aragorn is highly intelligent, and will respond to a wide variety of verbal commands given by the Valkyrie.

Bio:
Aragorn is a winged horse ridden by Brunnhilde the Valkyrie and previously owned and ridden by Dr. Dane Whitman, the Black Knight. Whitman was the nephew of Professor Nathan Garrett, who had adopted the guise of the earlier, criminal Black Knight. In this role, Garrett had ridden a horse whom he had mutated using genetic engineering techniques that he had developed. The artificial mutations gave the horse the large feathered wings and other special adaptations which enabled him to fly. After Garrett's final defeat by the original Iron Man, this winged horse excaped and eventually was further mutated and fell into the possession of the Dreadknight. Garrett, dying from the fall he had suffered in the battle, persuaded Whitman to vow to use the scientific discoveries he had used as the criminal Black Knight for good. Whitman decided to do so by becoming a new, heroic Black Knight. In pursuit of this goal, Whitman used Garrett's genetic techniques to mutate another horse, whom he named Aragorn, into a flying steed. When the new Black knight left his own time for a temporary stay in the Twelfth Century A.D., he entrusted Aragorn to the care of Brunnhilde the Valkyrie, who remains his owner to this day. The Black Knight, having returned to his own time, now rides a mechanical flying steed.
