Cul Borson, also known as The Serpent, is an Asgardian god and the older brother of Odin, Vili and Ve.
He was the main villain in the crossover event Fear Itself, where he used his subordinates, the Worthy, to consume the fear of all Midgardians to grow his power in order to battle Odin, who brought him down from the All-Father throne thousands of years ago. He eventually was slain by his nephew Thor, who was destined to die with him.
He was later reborn and now appointed by Odin to be the Asgardian Royal Inquisitor and Minister of Justice.

Weaknesses: If Cul is deprived of fear to feed upon he will revert to a withered state. The full details are unknown, but it that appears if Cul himself feels fear, if the person he is fighting is not afraid of him, or if the masses he is feeding upon cease to fear him his powers weaken. He was also destined to be slain by his nephew Thor (Although this weakness disappears after his rebirth)
Thor needed a specific weapon that Odin wielded in order to kill Cul. We consider this sword, and a specific prophecy to be the reasons why Thor could defeat his much more powerful uncle.
