History

Toothgnasher and Toothgrinder are the mystical goats of Thor that pull his chariot.

Thor left Toothgnasher in charge of guarding a Mjolnir from another dimension after it caused his best friend Volstagg to become a murderous maniac. After Volstagg regained the hammer, Toothgnasher ambushed him in the old City of Asgard in the Asgard-realm in order to make Volstagg relinquish the hammer. However, Toothgnasher was unexpectedly grabbed by the monster Mangog and brutally decapitated.[2]

Following the War of the Realms, Loki used magic to resurrect Toothgnasher as a gift to Thor, who had been given the crown of Asgard by Odin.[3]

Powers

Toothgnasher can be reborn if eaten unless one of his bones are broken. He is also superhumanly strong, able to damage the Mjolnir despite it being made of uru metal and Odin's enchantments. He is capable of traveling between the Ten Realms and both run and fly at high speed.
