The Comic Book Stand: Vol. 2, Issue #27, Enchantress


She was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby. Her first appearance was Journey into Mystery #103 in April 1964.

She is depicted as one of Thor’s greatest enemies and is often shown working with Loki.

Her parents are unknown, but she was born in Asgard and has a sister named Lorelei.

Amora began learning magic when she apprenticed under Karnilla, Queen of the Norns, but eventually got banished. Even after her banishment she continued learning magic, and became one of the most powerful magic-wielders.

She mainly focused on her ability to charm and mind-control others. As an Asgardian she possesses super-human strength, speed, stamina and durability. Amora is also capable of projecting magical power bolts, interdimensional teleportation, protective energy shields, illusions, levitation, conjuring, transmutation, telekinesis, time-disruption and mind-switching.

One of her main feats is her enchanted lips; she enchanted them so that whenever she kisses someone they become her slave for about a week if she does not renew the treatment.

Unlike many of her Asgardian counterparts, she is not based on a goddess from Norse mythology. Although she is said to be based off of the Norse goddesses Freyja, Gefn and Iduna, they exist in the Marvel Universe themselves.

There is also a second “Enchantress” named Sylvie Lushton who was created by Loki as a tool of chaos when he granted her mystic powers. Although she is not Enchantress, she models herself after her.

Lushton, however, does believe she is an Asgardian that had been exiled from Asgard. She is a a part of the Young Masters, and admits to her first time to have gained her magical powers.

Although she has similar powers and abilities to the original Enchantress, she looks younger and speaks with a lisp.
