PREPARED BY MARIA HILL
PERSONNEL BRIEF: Executioner
Given Name: Skurge (Surname unknown)
Classification: Extradimensional hostile (EDH)
Criminal Record: Not applicable. As a designated EDH, however, SHIELD has flagged Executioner with an Always-Detain designation whenever he manifests in this plane of reality.
Powers: The same superstrength and endurance typical to a native of Asgard.
Unique Weapon: A huge battleaxe that can (allegedly) cleave portals between realities.
Known History: The Directorate knows little of the Executioner prior to his first appearance on Earth to attack Thor and his allies in the Avengers . SHIELD will have to defer to its resident expert on all matters Asgardian: Thor.
Observations: “Skurge could number himself among Asgard’s finest defenders, but instead he had to fall in love with Amora the Enchantress , and once ensorceled by her feminine wiles began following her like a puppy dog into one mad scheme after another.
“My comrade Anthony Stark , whom the sagas rightly extol as The Iron Man, has suggested I gather together a group of my fellow Asgardians together to perform a Ritual of Purification on Skurge that Tony calls an ‘Intervention.’
“To rid Skurge of Amora’s pernicious influence I would try almost anything, and have requested literature on these ‘Interventions’ from the keepers of knowledge upon Nicholas Fury ’s floating Helicarrier.” — Thor
