HistoryPerun has the same history as that of his Earth-616 counterpart, up through the present day (early 2019).
In light of an increase of global tensions in the superhuman community, the Russian government expanded the Winter Guard's roster, including the likes of Perun and his sister, Devana, goddess of the hunt. During one of their earliest missions, Perun and Devana together faced Thor Odinson, Namor the Sub-Mariner and She-Hulk.
Powers and Abilities
Perun possesses various superhuman attributes common to the Russian gods.
- Superhuman Strength: Perun possesses vast superhuman strength of as yet unknown limit. However, he is one of the physically strongest of his race and can lift in excess of 100 tons.
- Superhuman Stamina: Perun's musculature produces almost no fatigue toxins during physical activity, granting him nearly limitless physical stamina in all activities.
- Superhumanly Dense Tissue: Perun's skin, muscle, and bone tissue has about 3 times the density of the same tissue in the body of a human being. This contributes, somewhat, to Perun's superhuman strength and weight.
- Superhuman Durability: Perun's body is considerably harder and more resistant to physical injury than the body of a human being, or most other Russian gods for that matter. Perun is capable of withstanding great impact forces, high caliber bullets, exposure to temperature and pressure extremes, falls from great heights, and powerful energy blasts without sustaining injury.
- Superhuman Reflexes: Perun's reaction time is enhanced to a level that is beyond the natural physical limits of even the finest human athlete.
- Regenerative Healing Factor: Despite his high resistance to injury, it is still possible to injure Perun. If injured, he is capable of rapidly regenerating damaged tissue with far greater speed and efficiency than a human being. However, he is unable to regenerate missing limbs or organs.
- Disease Immunity: Perun is immune to all known Earthly terrestrial diseases.
- Immortality: Like all Dievas, Perun is functionally immortal and cannot die by any conventional means. He is immune to the degenerative effects of aging and not aged since reaching adulthood.
- Energy Projection: Perun is capable of channeling great quantities of electrical energies and focus them through various weaponry that he carries as powerful bolts of destructive energy on a level equal to Thor.
Perun is a formidable hand to hand combatant. He is particularly skilled and wielding a hammer or axe in battle.
A winged stallion.
