Nessa was, in Taylor's words, a blonde with measurements like a Playboy model. As Menja, she wore Valkyrie-style armor that featured countless steel wings, as well as a closed-face helm. She also carried a spear. After she joined the Chosen, she carried a shield in one hand and a spear in the other.
Abilities and Powers
Menja had the same power as her sister, a breaker ability that allowed her to shrink incoming attacks proportionately to her size. When Fenja was first introduced, Taylor described her power as giving her the ability to "grow to be three stories tall", and become "a hundred times more durable". She was also capable of becoming six times as tall, taller than even Leviathan, and taking only a sixth of the damage alongside the benefits of being taller. She and her sister were considered strong enough to go toe-to-toe with Leviathan.
Raised by Heith.
Menja was eventually forced to leave Brockton Bay, with the rest of the Chosen, due to pressure from outside Villain groups.
She relocated her team to Boston, recruiting Niflheim and Muspelheim along the way, there they interfered with the plans of Accord to such an extent that the arch villain was forced to seek outside help.
- Fenja and Menja were mythical giants in the Song of Grótti, who gave their service to a king who squandered their gifts and so fell from power.
- While Nessa has been known to be a shortened version of Vanessa, Menjas civilian name is only ever given as Nessa.
