Usually depicted as a hulking beheamoth of a man, capable of huge feats of strength as well as being a gifted acrobat, Olaf is a key member of our Blackhawks lineup.
There's a little discrepancy as to what his last name actually is. Generally, the Blackhawks all go by just one name, so he was always just refereed to as Olaf, but his last name has been written as both Friedriksen and Bjornson. Friedriksen seems to be the more common last name for him, but there's already a Blackhawk that actually goes by the name Hendriksen, so it's a little redundant for Olaf's name to be so similar. Instead, we went with the less-commonly used Bjornson.
