|The Asgardian gods are extremely long-lived, but not immortal like the Olympians; they age very slowly upon reaching adulthood. Their body density are three times denser than normal human beings, contributing to their superhuman strength and weight. Their superior physical vitality enables them to harness magic more easily than humans, though both races possess some extent of mystical potential.|

Loki would attempt to manipulate the Hulk in this reality much like he did on Earth-616. However, in this reality Bruce Banner would retain his intelligence whenever he became the Hulk and would see through Loki's ruse, thus the Avengers would never form in this reality.
In this reality, the Avengers would form due to the machinations of Loki and Thor would be among their members. However, in this reality, the group could not agree on how to deal with their former teammate the Hulk forcing the group to disband. Thor would return to Asgard to focus his energies to fighting threats to his homeland.
In the Vi-Lock infected world of Earth-8545, The Asgardians are called upon to produce their Godly blood in able to construct a cure for the Legacy Plague.

Powers & Abilities
The majority of the Asgardians all have some potential to practice magic, mostly but not limited to changing their appearances, transforming matter and wielding cosmic, elemental and paranormal energies. Though upon a world undefended by any known Sorcerer Supreme, all Asgardian races (like all sentient races of the Marvel Universe, including humans) have the natural ability to harness eldritch energy (magic) far more easily than humans, drawing upon the ambient mystical might of Asgard itself and power-objects found therein, though their magical strength wanes beyond their native dimensional plane, if never fading completely. It has previously been stated by the Sorcerer Supreme of Midgard, Dr. Strange, that personal vitality is a key factor in one's ability to harness magic and since Asgardians are many times more durable than humans they can manipulate far greater magics than most human beings. All known Asgardian races have super-human strength and are extremely long lived, not truly immortal like the Olympians but long enough lived to seem ageless. Each group has especially dense body tissue rendering most of them bullet proof to at least small caliber weapons. Ulik resisted high powered, armor piercing rounds but it should be noted that he is the strongest of Rock Trolls and is probably more durable as well. The Asgardians have been shown to be bullet resistant but not completely unscathed from damage by them, though the more powerful gods, such as Thor and Odin have shown complete immunity to them.
The Asgardians are not highly advanced in technology, and unlike many of the Olympians or other pantheons, very few relatively wield magic; even Ares has been shown using it for various effects. The Asgardians were doomed to die and be reborn in the eternal cycle of Ragnarok, until Thor ended it, their lives bound to the Norns, Yggdrasil, Hela and Those Who Sit Above in Shadow. Even on Midgard without Ragnarok, it has been shown that "the touch of mortality upon" the Asgardians are greater than in Asgard, and, like Odin, their natural powers are weakened.
Population of this race is unknown.
