Lady Sif

Real Name





Place of Birth


Known Relatives
Heimdall (brother, deceased)





6' 2"


425 lbs




Black; formerly Blonde

Sif possesses the conventional attributes of an Asgardian woman ("goddess"). Like all Asgardians, she is extremely long-lived (although not immortal like the Olympians), superhumanly strong (the average Asgardian female can lift about 25 tons; Sif can lift 30 tons) immune to all diseases, and resistant to conventional injury (Asgardian flesh and bone is about 3 times as dense as similar human tissue, contributing to all Asgardians' superhuman strength and weight). Sif's Asgardian metabolism gives her far greater than human endurance during all physical activities.


Sif has extensive training in unarmed combat as well as swordsmanship. Her natural fighting ability is only surpassed among Asgardian women by Brunnhilda the Valkyrie.

Other Info

Sif was born a second generation goddess of
Asgard along with her brother Heimdall. As a child, Sif had golden hair and was an occasional playmate of Thor and his half-brother Loki. Once, while she was still an adolescent, Loki decided to play a trick on her in retaliation for her preference of Thor's company over his. As she slept, Loki cut off all of her golden hair.

Guessing that Loki had something to do with Sif's loss of hair, Thor angrily demanded that Loki restore her golden locks. The scared Loki contacted two dwarfish craftsmen (Brokk and Eitri) and asked them to create new hair for Sif. However, Loki was either unable, or unwilling, to pay the dwarfs enough for golden hair; therefore, Loki ended up stealing the newly created hair. However, Loki stole the hair before it was able to be treated with a special potion, and upon placing the hair on Sif's head, it grew darker by the minute before finally turning as black as night. Sif grieved over the loss of her golden hair for a long time until finally her parents grew tired of her vanity and sent Sif away to learn the arts of warfare as a Shield Maiden.

Years later, Sif returned to Asgard accomplished in the ways of the warrior. She had also grown to accept her black hair. Odin, lord of Asgard, had long deemed Sif to be a fitting mate for his son Thor since they were children. However, Sif and Thor had seen little of one another in the millennia since their childhood, and Thor had just recently been involved in a relatively brief relationship with a mortal by the name of Jane Foster. But, Odin was anxious to make Thor forget the mortal Foster, and when Sif and Thor met again, the two began to fall in love with each other. (Click on the highlighted names above to learn about Odin and/or Jane Foster.)

Reunited with Thor, Sif accompanied him into battle against many of his most formidable enemies including Ulik, the Circus of Crime, Wrecker, Mangog, and Pluto. (Click on the highlighted names above to learn about the different characters and/or team.)

Eventually, Sif and Thor made a pledged to marry. However, Thor's feelings of responsibility to Earth and its people often caused a strain between their relationship. Sif tried to adjust to living on Earth; however, Sif preferred the majesty of Asgard and eventually returned to Asgard to live without Thor. Sif and Thor have did not break their betrothal, but their marriage was postponed until they could reconcile their differences.

Later, Sif and Thor came to the aid of Beta Ray Bill (who was the guardian of a large space fleet that carried the surviving members of his alien race--Korbinites--in suspended animation). Eventually, Sif, Beta Ray Bill, and Thor were able to drive off a horde of Surtur's demons that were attacking Beta Ray Bill's fleet. As the war with Surtur raged on, Sif and Beta Ray Bill found themselves attracted to one another. And in a final battle with Surtur, Thor, Loki, and Odin defended Asgard while the warriors of Asgard, led by Sif and Beta Ray Bill, protected Earth from Surtur's demons and the renegade Dark Elves working with Surtur. In the end, Surtur and his forces were defeated on Asgard and Earth. Following the war, Sif and Beta Ray Bill decided to spend some time on Earth together. However, after some time, the two decide to part ways as just friends, and Sif returned to Asgard. (To learn about characters and/or race above, click on their highlighted names above.)

Sometime later, Loki brings about
Ragnarok (the event that marks the end of Asgard). During the first wave of attacks, Sif lost an arm in battle. Then, during the second wave of the war, she avenged the Valkyrie who was slain by Durok the Demolisher, by stabbing Durok with Valkyrie's own sword, the Dragonfang. However, Sif was killed in the third and final wave, which no one survived. (To learn about the event, character, and/or weapon highlighted above, just click on their names.)

After Thor was reborn, he rebuilt Asgard. Sif, however, remained trapped in the body of an old dying woman named Mrs. Chambers. This was due to the manipulations of Loki who was using Sif's body in order to convince the rest of the Asgardians that he had truly been changed. Eventually, Thor found out what really happened to Sif and he sacrificed what was left of his "Odinpower" in order to restore Sif before she died along with Mrs. Chambers. (Click on the highlighted names to learn about Asgardians and/or the "Odinpower.")

More recently, Sif returned with Thor (now in his mortal form--Donald Blake) to Oklahoma after she refused to return to Asgard which had been moved to Latveria due to Loki and Dr. Doom's plans.
Eventually, when Dr. Doom and Loki sent creations to destroy Thor, Sif was the first to sense their presence. Sif immediately deflected a direct assault against Donald Blake before calling the Warriors Three into battle with her. This allowed the Asgardians to ultimately thwart Dr. Doom and Loki's plans.

  1. A couple of things...
    1 - She carries her weight extremely well ;-)
    2 - The Asgardian story line is quite confusing, with all the twists and turns and rebirths and deaths etc.
