As an Asgardian/Frost Giant hybrid, Skurge possesses enormous superhuman strength and is likely the strongest Asgardian after Thor, Odin and Hela. He has been said to be nearly as strong as Thor or Wonder Man.
Executioner's skin and muscle tissue are superhumanly dense. Due to his half-giant heritage, The Executioner's flesh and bone are even more dense than an average Asgardians. He is able to resist ballistic impacts of up to .50 caliber machine gun fire and temperature extremes from 100 below zero to 2000 degrees Fahrenheit. He is virtually inexhaustible, not tiring after any physical exertion. He is immune to all earthly disease.
The Executioner has the visual acuity of a hunting falcon able to see at a 100 feet what a normal human can see at 10 feet.
Weapons: The Executioner wields a double bladed axe with a three foot handle and blades two feet wide. The axe is so massive, that it weighs approximately 280lbs. With the axe he can cleave inter-dimensional passages that can transport himself and others to other realms or dimensions. He can also use the axe to open small rifts to other dimensions which permit inter-dimensional energy to pass through, such as blazing stellar fire or intense cold. The axe is also capable of destroying illusions created by magic.
Uses an enchanted axe which posses and corrupts others.
Skurge is an Asgardian/Storm Giant hybrid. Usually partnered up with the Enchantress.
Skurge was an Asgardian warrior who often teamed-up with the Enchantress against Thor. This led to his banishment from Asgard. The two would now team-up with humans to fight Thor and his allies. Finally Skurge came to the realization that the Enchantress was just using him through the years and she did not love him as he loved her. During that time Malekith trapped living human souls in Niflheim and Hela who rules refused to let the souls leave. So Balder and Thor decided to lead an army to free the souls. Skurge jumped at the chance for redemption. Skurge died taking on Hela's armies while the Asgardian army and the human souls escape her realm. Thus, earning him an honorable death and putting in Vahalla.
He sacrificed himself to allow the warriors of Asgard to escape Hel.
