Shiva of Nirvana is one of the supreme gods of Hinduism in the Marvel Universe. He rules the Hindu gods alongside the creator-force Brahma and the preservation-force Vishnu. Together they form the Trimurti. Major decisions are voted upon by the three with the winning vote being their course of action. Of the three he often comes across as the most violent with an eagerness to destroy. He is often referred to as the destroyer-force. He is a member of the Council of Godheads and often attends meetings with the Trimurti. His role is to destroy things whose time has past to make room for a new creation.
One thousand years ago, Shiva attended a meeting of the Council of Godheads with the rest of the Trimurti to discuss the coming threat of the Celestials. In modern times, the thunder god Thor requested a donation of energy to revive the fallen Asgardian gods who had died fighting the Celestials. Shiva (or Indra) opposed believing the time of the Asgardians had past. He engaged Thor in battle and even gained the upper hand, but was defeated when Thor trick fully transported them to the rainbow bridge of Asgard. Thor asked him to give up the necessary energies or be trapped in an endless void. Shiva agreed in the end , but vowed, that Thor's battle with him would be fought again for the test to his ascension to the throne of Asgard . Later, Shiva attended a meeting of Godheads to discuss Thor's ascension to the throne of Asgard. Shiva demanded Thor be tested to see if he was worthy to join the Council of Godheads.
Shiva is skilled in the use of many weapons including spears, axes, and nets. He may be able to hypnotize people and gods with his third eye of sight.
