Susanoo no mikoto
Susanoo's history is the same as his mythic counterpart.

After the "Chaos War," Susanoo-no-Mikoto descended to Earth to fight the insane god Amatsu-Mikaboshi, however, neither his power nor that of all the gods of all the pantheons in the universe was sufficient to defeat him, and the threat only came to an end thanks to Hercules, who sacrificed his immortality and godly powers to defeat the "Chaos King." However, Susanoo-no-Mikoto was not happy. His failure to defeat Amatsu was dishonorable, and only by defeating an even greater challenge (and therefore proving himself worthy) could he then return to Kami. He decided to remain on Earth to prove his worth.

Later, the Mad Titan Thanos attacked Earth during "Infinity," and Susanoo-no-Mikoto joined Big Hero 6 to protect Japan from the "Builders," and the Six were greatly strengthened by his help. Invited to join the team, Susanoo saw the honor of those mortals and decided to join them as a way to regain his honor as the Eastern storm god. Along with the Six, he faced the challenges threatening the current-day Japan to prove his honor, which proved to be a greater challenge than Amatsu-Mikaboshi, and then returned to the kingdom of his mother, Izanagi, and his brothers the Kami.

Powers and Abilities

Susanoo-no-Mikoto is virtually a god, having vast unlimited powers. As such, he has unlimited strength and superhuman speed. He is also able to control the elements of the storm, generating cyclonic winds, lightning, storm and frost. He also uses powerful weapons, such as the Kusanagi-no-Tsurugi sword.

Susanoo-no-Mikoto is known to be the strongest among the eastern gods of Kami, can lift objects as massive as planets, weighing millions of tons. His body resists fire, extreme cold, and even bullets and nuclear explosions. With his keen senses, he can follow the trail of an enemy for months without losing them. And due to his several millennia-long lifespan, he has become a master of all kinds of combat, unarmed, with swords katanas, spears or nunchakus.

Superhuman Strength: Susanoo has one of the largest strength levels in comic books. Through the present day there is nothing that he has not been able to move by exercising his power. Some of his most impressive feats include making a planet shake with a strike from his katana, breaking Adamantium cables, pulling the huge dragon Yamato-no-Orochi, and destroying moons in a single blow. Susanoo-no-Mikoto has attacked Thanos with such force that he destroyed the planetoid he was on, and turned the Tao of Circle of Yin and Yang in the opposite direction; that according to Japanese legend, represented the axis of the universe, as well as winning against the assembled Avengers. When under the effects of warrior's madness, his physical force is amplified several times, reaching near-omnipotent levels. In this state, he has won against extremely powerful cosmic beings, such as the Silver Surfer, Drax the Destroyer and Adam Warlock, among others. Several times, Susanoo-no-Mikoto mentioned that he contains his strength and power while fighting on Earth, and made himself promise to never use all of his strength and power, even if his life is at risk.

Superhuman Resistance: Susanoo-no-Mikoto also has one of the highest resistances in all comics. His resistance is greater than the average Kami, thanks to his divine genetic inheritance. He can withstand the rigors of space, the pressures of the oceans, the core of planets, orbital falls, nuclear explosions, and resist extremely high or low temperatures.

Superhuman Speed: Susanoo-no-Mikoto can run faster than a normal human being, thanks to the characteristics derived from the Kami. His reaction time is also greater than that of a normal human, thanks to his superhuman senses. Susanoo-no-Mikoto also has extremely high flight speed, and when in outer space, he can reach his top speed without worrying about causing harm to others or his environment.

Divine Immunity: Being a god whose genetic heritage is derived from the sovereign of Izanami, the god of gods in Japanese mythology, and the Earth's goddess, Izanagi, Susanoo-no-Mikoto has the gift of divine immunity. He has absolute immunity to all types of diseases and infections in the universe. In addition, Susanoo-no-Mikoto still has full immunity to toxins, poisons, acids, extreme temperatures, electricity, heavy metals, asphyxia and radiation poisoning.

Longevity: The genetic code derived from Izanagi granted immortality to the eastern thunder god, which came after impurities were cleansed from his body in the "source from which originate all waters."

Climate Control: Susanoo-no-Mikoto is commonly known as the "Oriental God of Thunder," and he has control of the elements and the climate equivalent to Thor or Storm. He has invoked storms and lightning in space, where there is no atmosphere. He can invoke the most stringent of storms; such powers can be used very effectively, both to cause damage, or repair / avoid damage to something or someone. Thanks to the powerful magic katana Kusanagi-no-Tsurugi, Susanoo can channel and enhance these effects, as this magnificent weapon serves as a catalyst. The elements of the storm he can locally manipulate are: rain, wind, lightning, ice and snow.

Experience in Combat: The life of Susanoo-no-Mikoto spans millennia. Much of it is marked by fighting against Onis, Hengeyokais, Kuei-Jin, Japanese demon wizards, Lords Yomi and all sorts of Japanese mythological creatures. Naturally, that Susanoo-no-Mikoto has acquired expertise in melee combat. He is an expert martial artist with unparalleled mastery in most Japanese martial arts; such as Karate, Judo, Jiu-Jitsu-Do, and Aikido, and has deep knowledge of the arts of war and oriental philosophy of the samurai. Susanoo is one of the deadliest martial arts fighters martial arts ever. Also, to win the right to possess the Uru katana Kusanagi-no-Tsurugi, Susanoo had to go through many rigorous tests to prove himself worthy to wield the enchanted weapon.


Kusanagi-no-Tsurugi: Izanami the most accurate and powerful weapon possible, the katana Kusanagi-no-Tsurugi, for Susanoo. It is a magical blade comparable in power to Thor's hammer Mjolnir. Made of a special mystic ore called Uru and forged by the flame of a Celestial Dragon by blacksmith monks, this fantastic weapon is capable of cutting virtually any substance like a hot knife through butter. The katana is also able to cut through reality to create portals between dimensions, as well as absorb any type of energy and re-launch it enlarged. It is also able to manipulate cosmic energies, electricity, magnetism, quantum particles, and the six elements of oriental culture (Fire, Earth, Water, Wind, Wood and Metal). By rotating the mystical katana at incredible speeds, Susanoo can create an insurmountable shield. Beyond these, the katana is still imbued with many mysterious incantations.

  • The Worthiness Enchantment: The enchantment placed on Kusanagi-no-Tsurugi by Izanami makes it so that only Susanoo-no-Mikoto can wield it in combat, since he feared that such a powerful weapon could fall into dangerous hands. Anyone who is unworthy to wield the sword and attempts to do so is mystically compelled to pierce their own hearts with it. Only those who have a heart equally pure or purer than Susanoo-no-Mikoto's can wield the blade, among those few is Thor. The moment someone loses their favor, all the special powers of the katana vanish, making it unable to kill the most insignificant creatures and therefore rendering it completely useless in combat. If Susanoo-no-Mikoto is being controlled by a being powerful enough to bend his will, the katana itself denies him and loses all his special powers, becoming an ordinary weapon that only regains its powers at the time that Susanoo-no-Mikoto regains control. Kusanagi-no-Tsurugi also has a spell that allows the user to reveal when one is lying. Those who wield it and lie cause the blade to become black. A second comparable katana would be given to a human named Amadeus Cho, who would become the superhero Prince of Power, an Eastern version of Hercules who had lost his divine powers. It has also been able to raise Captain America; and, of course, Izanami himself.
