Hogun is often referred to as the Grim due to his short, taciturn form of communicating and brooding personality. He is the most thoughtful of the Warriors Three but also the most pessimistic. He is the only member of the three who is not Aesir (With Asgard not being his native homeland). His homeland has never been named in the comics but is known to have been conquered by the Mogul of Mystic Mountain. The Mogul of Mystic Mountain is one of Hogun's bitterest enemies as he not only conquered his home but also killed many of his people and family. With the help of Thor he battles and defeats the Mogul.
Despite his dour demeanor Hogun is very noble and always loyal to his friends.
He is the first to attack Loki when he usurps the throne of Asgard. He is nearly killed but Sif jumps before him and tells Loki that if Hogun is kills he will need to kill her first. Loki relents.
Hogun is generally seen using a mace but not always. He collects and is a seeming master of a wide variety of weapons.
Hogun has had many adventures with the Warriors Three and Thor. He has battled Mangog, Thermal Man, Surtur, Mogul of Mystic Mountain, the Destroyer, Loki, Flying Trolls of Thryheim, Fafnir, Mephisto, Hela, Ego-Prime, Xorr, Ssthagar's Slavers, Mercurio, Zarrko the Tomorrow Man, Spoor, Grey Gargoyle, Enchantress, Skurge the Executioner.
