Young in the ranks of other Asgardian Gods, Hermod has been often employed by Odin as a messenger, thanks to his speed. One mission involved traveling to Hela to learn of ways in which his brother, Balder, might be revived.
When Thor was imprisoned for objecting Odin's plan to raze Earth in order to defeat the Serpent, Hermod was one of the few who agreed with the Thunderer. When Loki freed Thor and met up with the Warriors Three, Sif, and himself, Hermod offered to help him escape to Midgard; however, this was discovered by Odin.
- Superhuman Speed: Hermod possesses the ability to move at speeds many times greater than an ordinary Asgardian can.
- Superhuman Strength: Hermod possesses superhuman strength and able to lift 30 tons.
- Allspeak: Thanks to the Allspeak he can communicate in all of the languages of the Nine Realms, Earth's dialects, and various alien languages.
Hermod possesses the strength of an normal Asgardian god and can lift (press) about 30 tons.
- Although being usually stated to be Frigga's son, those statements were balanced by others.
- Of note is the time when Odin cast the Asgardian people into human guises to avoid Ragnarok. Heimdall and Sif remained siblings as mortals, Volstagg and his wife remained married, but Hermod became Howie Barker, raised by his Aunt Freida (Frigga in mortal form).
