Real Name: Presumably Nedra
Identity/Class: Extradimensional (Jotunheim; associated with Asgardian cosmology) Giant
Occupation: Former queen of the Storm Giants
Group Membership: Jotuns (Giants of Jotunheim)
Affiliations: Brimer, unidentified Vanna
Enemies: Gods of Asgard, especially Heimdall and Odin
Known Relatives: Presumably Brimer (husband)
Base of Operations: Jotunheim (one of the nine/ten worlds associated with the Asgardian cosmology)
First Appearance: Journey into Mystery I#105/2 (June, 1964)
Powers/Abilities: As a Jotun, Nedra was large and strong (perhaps Class 25-50), with superhuman durability and longevity (enhanced lifespan/delayed aging, with a lifespan perhaps measuring presumably at least millennia).
The Vanna served her will, though
whether this was out of respect for her title as queen or because she
knew some means to influence or control them is unrevealed.
Height: Unrevealed (perhaps 19')
Weight: Unrevealed; (at human density, at the estimated height above) approximately 2.6 tons; (at previously reported density of giants as 2-3 times human) 5.2-7.8 tons
Hair: Unrevealed (dark eyebrows)
(Journey into Mystery I#105/2) - Brimer voiced his frustration to Nedra that, even though he was king of the Storm Giants, he could not attack Asgard as long as the ever-vigilant Heimdall guarded the Rainbow Bridge.
Comments: Created by Stan Lee, Jack Kirby, and George Bell.
It is not explicitly stated that Brimer and Nedra are husband and wife, but she was queen of the Storm Giants at the same time he was king of the Storm Giants. I'm sure there are exceptions, but I would think it most likely that they were married.
