Wotan is the ruler of the Gard of the Aesir and Thor's father. After helping to save the world, Thor returned to the Gard of the Aesir planning to ask Wotan for advise on how to free Donal, Thor's mortal form.
Wotan possesses all the conventional attributes of an Asgardian. However, as the ruler of the Asgardians, many of these attributes are considerably greater than those possessed by the majority of his race.
Superhuman Strength: Wotan possessed superhuman strength sufficient to lift about 60 tons without supplementing his strength with his other powers.
Superhuman Speed: Wotan, despite his age, is capable of running and moving at speeds greater than even the finest human athlete.
Superhuman Stamina: Wotan's musculature produces considerably less fatigue toxins during physical activity than the musculature of a human. As a result, he possesses superhuman stamina in all physical activities. He can exert himself at peak capacity for about 24 hours before fatigue begins to impair him.
Superhumanly Dense Tissue: Wotan's skin, muscle, and bone tissues are about 3 times as dense as those of humans. This contribute, somewhat, to Wotan's superhuman strength and weight.
Superhuman Durability: Wotan's body is considerably more resistant to physical injury than the body of a human being, or even most other Asgardians for that matter. Wotan's body is capable of withstanding great impact forces, exposure to temperature and pressure extremes, falls from great heights, and powerful energy blasts without sustaining injury.
Regenerative Healing Factor: It is possible to injure Wotan, but he recovers from physical injury with superhuman levels of speed and efficiency, like all Asgardians. Wotan is capable of regenerating massive tissue damage or loss to a degree far beyond that of most other Asgardians, even of being able to regenerate missing limbs and organs.
God of Wisdom: Vast knowledge of ancient and arcane wisdom.
Master Combatant: Wotan is a formidable hand to hand combatant
Master Tactician: His thousands of years of experience result in him becoming a master tactician.Asgardian Mystical Combatant: Wotan is also extremely adept at wielding his vast energy powers during combat situations. Wotan is extremely skilled at using Asgardian magic, weapons, and items.
Once every year, Wotan is forced to under take the Odinsleep; a state of deep sleep where he recharged the Odinforce but left him as vulnerable as a mortal. The duration of the Odinsleep varies from time to time; sometimes it's a single night while other occasions are for more than a week.
