Cate Blanchett as Hela in Thor: Ragnarok.

Who she is: Hela

Her power: Hela is the Asgardian goddess of death, so in addition to the usual Asgardian abilities of superhuman strength, speed, and so on, she also historically has mystical abilities over life and death.


Her story: We have yet to see Hela on the big screen, so it’s unclear as of yet what her MCU backstory will entail. All we know is she’s the presumably main villain of Thor: Ragnarok.

Played by: Cate Blanchett

Currently, Hela is: Probably gearing up to make a lot of trouble for Thor and the Hulk.


Where will we see her next? She makes her Marvel debut in Thor: Ragnarok, coming November 3, 2017.
