Weaknesses: His immunity does not function while on Midgard (Earth or the normal 616 universe) although he is still superhumanly durable
- Radiance: As the God of Light, Balder can radiate massive amounts of heat and light from his body. This was able to function the same as sunlight, for example turning trolls to stone as they normally only turn to stone in the sun
- Immunity: Due to a spell by Odin and Frigga, while in the dimension of Asgard Balder cannot be harmed by any weapon, power, or attack save mistletoe. Any projectile that would harm him will be magically deflected before it hits and even if something hits him it will not harm him. Odin presumably has the power to overrule this protection if he wishes, and other beings with similar levels of power could presumably do likewise.
- Not to be confused with the similarly - named character from Bayonetta or the mythological character that they are both based on
