Hera possesses the conventional powers of the Olympian gods including superhuman strength (Class 25), vitality, longevity and resistance to injury. Hera also has many mystical energy-wielding powers, not all of which have been depicted, that may surpass those of all other Olympian goddesses. Her magical abilities are known to be surpassed by those of her brothers Zeus, Neptune and Pluto. It is not known how the energy-wielding abilities of her sisters Demeter and Vesta compare to Hera's. Evidently, Hera's mystical powers enable her to fly at great speed, shape-change her form to manipulate her size or very appearance to that of another person, animal or object, and she can render herself and other beings invisible from mortal eyesight. Hera can cast spells to change the form of other beings or objects and is able to project mystic bolts of highly concussive force. She is also capable of teleporting between dimensions such as from Olympus to Earth.
Hera is the Queen of the Olympian pantheon and wife of Zeus. Neptune and Pluto are her brothers, Vesta is her sister, and Ares and Hephaestus are her sons. She was born on the island of Samos, and now resides with the rest of the pantheon in Olympus.
Hera was present at the time of a pact made a millennia ago to end war between Asgard and Olympus. It was also revealed that she was present during the Trojan War. When Hercules was gravely wounded fighting the Masters of Evil, Zeus blamed the Avengers for his condition. Hera sought to aid the Avengers in Olympus against the wrath of Zeus. Later, Hera challenged Ares to a contest to see who could cause Hercules more sorrow. She began a plot against Hercules concerning his growing love for the mortal Taylor Madison.
