The Sword of Summer

Hunding takes Magnus to the front desk to check in at . He then takes Magnus to his room and answers a few of his questions. When he drops Magnus off at his room and gestures for a tip. Magnus gives him a chocolate bar, which he happily takes. He then leaves Magnus and tells him his Valkyrie will get him when dinner is served. At the dinner he is seen standing by Helgi and handing him peeled grapes, much to his displeasure.

Hunding is later seen when Magnus and his friends are brought before the Thanes to be judged. He looked at Magnus with disappointment and was surprised when X revealed himself to be Odin.

Just Another Decapitated Head

Hunding alerts Odin to a food fight among the Valkyries. After that he tells the Thanes of a meeting to select a new valkerie captain. When the meeting fails Odin asks him to track Thor while he is jogging, have the Einherjar attack Heimdall to make sure he is ready for a sneak attack, and to tell the thanes he will be away while he goes under cover in the valkeries to select a new captain.


Hunding has a warty face smeared with ashes, an untamed beard that seems to 'have not been trimmed in decades', and 'murderous' bloodshot eyes under bushy eyebrows. He is usually seen in his doorman's uniform: a top hat, white gloves and a dark green jacket with tails and the interlocking letters HV embroidered on the lapel. The burly man possesses a double-bladed axe that hangs at his side and has been noted to smell like turpentine and burning meat.


Hunding is a helpful man who looks out for guests that treat him with kindness.


  • In Norse mythology, Hunding was the king of the Saxon tribe, who was slain by Helgi Hundingsbane in revenge for his father.
  • He has a fondness for chocolate.
