Perun (comics)

Perun is a Marvel Comics character based on the mythical deity in Slavic mythology, with control over thunder and lightning similar to that of the Norse god Thor.


In Slavic mythology, Perun ( Cyrillic: Перун) is the highest god of the pantheon and the god of thunder and lightning. His other attributes were fire, mountains, wind, the oak, iris, eagle, firmament (in Indo-European languages, this was joined with the notion of the sky of stone), horses and carts, weapons (the hammer, axe ( Axe of Perun), and arrow), and war. He was first associated with weapons made of stone and later with those of metal.
