The Gods of Asgard are a race of superhumanly powerful humanoid beings who were once
worshipped by the ancient Norse and German tribes of Western and Northern Europe
between 1100 BC to 1200 AD. The Asgardians dwell in Asgard, a cosmology of
interconnected worlds adjacent to Earth; an interdimensional pathway between both
realms known as Bifrost links Asgard to Earth, or Midgard as it is known among the
Asgardians, with a possible interdimensional access point somewhere in Norway. The
Asgardians' human worshippers in Germany called their gods by different names than
those by which the gods were known in Scandinavia (Ancient Norway, Sweden and
Denmark): for example, the Norse called the king of the gods Odin, whereas the
Germans called him Wode or Woden. The Vikings and Saxons also carried worship of
their gods to their outposts in Iceland, Britain and North America. The Asgardian
gods no longer have or actively seek worshippers on Earth. However, certain Asgardian
gods, notably Thor and Odin, still take active interest in the welfare of humanity.
