The Norse Goddess of Death and “daughter” of Loki just wants one thing. To bring noble souls into her realm of Hell. To her, Thor is one of the finest souls she has ever encountered. Introduced in Journey into Mystery #102 (1964) by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, Hela has never really been one to take action against Thor or the other heroes. She prefers to stay neutral expect when they are fighting in her domain. She is extremely protective of her realm of Hell, which she uses to torture souls.

Hela is one of many characters that has a same basic design, which has been done differently by different artists over the years. Most of the time, she is seen in a full body outfit mostly consisting of lighter and darker shades of green nearly black in color. Other times, she is designed in a more sexier design but that usually changes back to the regular design soon after.
