- Thor is from the Christopher Yost Animated Universe.
A group of warriors approach and surround a darkened pit. They leap down and approach the young Thor, who wields a sword. Thor leaps forward into the group. He blocks the sword of one warrior, slashes the cape of another, and trips a third.
On the other side he goads the others into attacking. The larger warriors approach holding up their swords and axes.
He looks high above the pit, the audience watches and cheers. He spots Sif standing on the ledge looking down.
Thor smiles and readies his sword. He turns and blocks another's attack. Thor locks swords and leaps over the warrior. He flips over and blocks another. He continues to flip and block until he makes his away across the pit of warriors once again.
Upon reaching the last warrior, Thor trips and loses his sword. On the ground Thor reaches out for the sword as the warriors stand by, first watching him then looking at each other.
One large warrior approaches and lifts Thor's sword with his. He raises it up and tosses it back at Thor. Thor grasps the sword and smiles.
High above, Sif continues to look on.
Thor stands and attacks the helping man. Despite his attacks, the man blocks with every move. Thor circles around him but the man keeps moving back away from him.
Sif grows tired of the show and turns to leave down a dark hallway.
Back in the pit the man, Ander bows before Thor and tells him that he is victorious. Thor rests his sword on is back and asks if they would do this again the next week. The other warriors also bow. Ander says they will do as he asks.
Thor starts to walk away but stops when the audience cheers. He lowers his sword and looks up but does not see Sif.
As Thor leaves the arena, Loki congratulates him on the fight, though he notes that the sword had a problems with the grip and was too slick. As Thor passes Loki starts to follow. He says he will punish the dwarves for Thor. Thor puts the sword in its sheath and tells him to do it.
Thor walks up to a barn. Inside, Sif dips her hand into a bucket of feed and holds it to a horse who eats out of her hand. Thor approaches and claims she missed his victory. Sif tells him she left after the opponents helped him with his weapon.
Thor gets flustered but walks up to her saying it was the dwarves' fault they didn't work on the grip right. Sif gets angry knowing that blaming the dwarves was Loki's idea. Thor also gets angry at the idea that he shouldn't have won the match. Sif tells him that it wasn't just that day's match.
Sif grabs the bucket and walks past Thor. However, Thor grabs her arm causing her to drop the feed and demands an explanation. She yanks her hand away from him and demands that he explain why he never ceded victory to the most celebrated warriors in Asgard, the Einherjar.
Thor claims that he is simply more skilled than they are. Sif leans in and points out that they have the toughest foes in the Nine Realms. She shoves her finger into his chest and reminds him that he has never left the royal grounds.
Thor then claims to have the strength of Odin. Sif crouches down and scoops up the feed. She agrees but notes that he also has the authority meaning that the warriors have no choice but to lose.
Sif stands and Thor demands to know why she has so little faith in him. Sif claims she is the only one who does and that all others protect him. Thor yells at her to stop. The two stand staring at each other.
Sif tells him that he has never had an honest fight in his life. She turns to walk away. Thor pulls out his sword and tells her that since she is good with blades she should fight him. Sif warns him to be careful but Thor insults her saying to choose a weapon.
Sif drops the feed and steps on a pitch fork to grab the handle. She spins it around then readies it at Thor. Thor sees the barn tool and realizes she thinks less of him than he thought. Sif breaks off the fork end and holds the broken handle to him.
Thor raises his sword and runs forward. As he approaches Sif lifts the bucket with the handle and drops in on his head. She swings the handle around and sweeps Thor's feet from underneath him.
Thor lands and lifts the bucket off his head growing angry. Then Sif points the broken end at him and he stops. She drops the handle and bids him farewell.
She rears the Pegasus causing its wings to expand. The Pegasus flies up and away from the barn. Thor, still covered in feed, exits and watches her fly away. He turns to see Loki then walks away.
Elsewhere, Volstagg stands on a raised circular platform in a large public square. He drinks from a stein and speaks to the crowd. Hogun sits off by himself also drinking from a pint. Fandral sits with two beautiful women.
Volstagg tells him of a time when the Warriors Three were on the side of an icy mountain with fire leaping up from a gorge below. One of Fandral's ladies wonders how fire got in Jotunheim. Fandral tells her that it was dragons.
The other woman then asks how many were after them. Fandral says there were seven but Volstagg interrupts saying there were ten. Hogun speaks up saying there were a dozen at least. The four look over at the quiet warrior who turns to look back at them.
Fandral then claims that Frost Giants were also approaching them. He goes on to say that there was no escape for him but Volstagg interrupts and continues. He says that the Warriors Three would not stop their quest. He told them that the Sword of Surtur was worth their lives. The crowd mumbles in appreciation.
Just then Fandral sees Thor approaching and congratulates him on his victory. Thor walks past without saying a word, obviously angry. He holds up his pint saying his victory is nothing compared to those found outside the arena. The crowd laughs and parts as Thor approaches.
Suddenly Thor stops. Hogun stands and lifts his mace saying that next time Thor could join them. Volstagg grabs Hogun reminding him that Thor is not allowed to leave the kingdom. The crowd laughs once again.
Thor shakes with anger then runs towards Volstagg. He grabs the overweight man and threatens him for insulting him. Volstagg says they were only jesting and reminds the prince that they are friends.
Thor sighs and lets him go. He turns and leaves. Volstagg asks Hogun what is wrong with the boy. Fandral walks up next to the other two as they watch Thor leave.
You Will Obey
Just then Thor bursts into the room asking to see his father. Odin holds up his hand telling him to wait.
Odin turns back to Skala and asks how he found out about this when the scout sent to track them failed to return. Skala tells him that they followed Brunhilde after she secretly met with Lady Sif.
Once the mighty doors are closed, Odin sights and asks his son what is wrong. Thor walks up to his father asking permission to go with the Einherjar on one of their patrols. Odin knows Thor already knows the answer but Thor does not agree. Odin tells him that as his son he has different responsibilities.
Thor says that at least warriors know their limits. Odin knows that Thor has outgrown his training. Thor looks away asking if the Einherjar let him in. He turns back to his father who says that it is true. Thor is shocked and wonders why.
Odin tells him that it is because Thor turned his training to public entertainment. He goes on to say that the kingdom cannot see their prince defeated week after week. Thor realizes that his father also doubts his abilities.
Odin stands saying that being king is not about drawing a sword in battle but avoiding battle entirely. Thor gets angry saying that running away sounds more like Loki's strengths and claims that he should just give his brother the crown.
Odin walks up to his son saying that perhaps he will give it to Loki. In the meantime, Odin, as the king and his father, says that Thor will not leave Asgard. Thor turns and walks away.
Thor then tells Algrim to come out. Algrim walks out from behind a column near the Destroyer armor. He is impressed that Thor could find him in the shadows while not many can. Thor admits that neither can he.
Thor walks to the other side noting that Algrim always checks on him after a fight wit his father. He walks to a sword and lifts it up. He swings the sword around trying it out. Algrim says that he usually checks up on him because Thor insists on doing something foolish. Thor admits that he usually lets himself get talked out of it but he won't this time.
Algrim walks up wondering where Thor is going that he would need that sword. Thor sheathes the new sword and tells Algrim that there used to be a test for young warriors, a secret quest.
Thor walks over to the spear and Algrim follows. Algrim knows of the test. Thor says that no one has ever died on this quest. Though Algrim notes that it is because the object will never be found. Thor turns to the elf and says that searching for the Sword of Surtur is not about finding the weapon but in looking.
Algrim notes that he would be trespassing in Jotunheim though the boy is glad to do it. Algrim walks up to him and says that the truce with the Frost Giants is fragile and warns that he must not be found.
Thor starts to walk away while insulting the Frost Giants. But he quickly stops and turns to see Algrim in pain. He turns back and apologizes to him. Algrim forgives him and tells him that his people are an example of how dangerous the Frost Giants can be.
Thor tells him he will be careful and asks that this stay between the two. Algrim tells him that he will keep quiet for as long as he can. Thor tells him that he is a good friend and leaves.
Just then Thor calls out to Amora seconds before she and Loki kiss. They look over and see him standing in the doorway. Thor enters the room telling her to leave. Amora bows and walks out passing Thor on the stairs.
Loki asks what Thor needs and Thor asks how Loki is doing on his magic. Loki arrogantly tells him that his magic is advanced. Thor tells him that they're going to be hiding aboard the Thunder Runner and they're going to need his magic. Shocked, Loki admits that he's not very good.
At the docks, Thor and Loki sneak from behind one crate to another. Thor finds the Thunder Runner and tell his brother that they'll hide in the hold. Loki wonders why they should hide from their friends. Thor says that their friends aren't foolish enough to sail with the sons of Odin on their ship.
They make for the ship but hear Fandral boasting behind them. They quickly sneak off.
Fandral tells two lovely ladies that even though they will only be gone seven days it will feel like an eternity while fighting in Jotunheim. Behind them, Volstagg carries two kegs. One of the women asks him to bring them something. Fandral suggest a claw or fang from a savage white bear. Behind them, Hogun pushes a large cart.
The boat launches from the dock. Hogun uses an oar to move them back. Fandrall stands on the ship's bow waving farewell to the women. The ship turns and the sail drops down.
As the ship moves away from Asgard Volstagg drinks from his pint. The ship then flies off into the heavens past Heimdall.
As the three stand on the deck, Thor peaks up through a hatch. He turns to see Asgard growing more distant. Down below, Loki sits against the cargo with his eyes closed. Thor tells him of the amazing sight, though Loki wished never to see it.
Thor closes the match saying that his brother always worries. He reminds him that the Warriors Three have returned from the last three seasons without any harm done. Loki says that since they are royalty they are not skilled in such adventures.
Thor claims that since he is so good with a blade he will protect his little brother. He then returns to peaking out the hatch. Loki sighs saying that Sif was right.
Thor wakes Loki. He tells him that the ship stops and assumes they are in Jotunheim. The two peak out of the hatch and leave. They then see a large creature throw a man out of a door saying that if the man returned he would kill him. Loki tells Thor that it is smaller than he thought.
They then see that they are on a small platform with just a few ships docked.
Hogun laments that sitting in this place stealing stories isn't interesting anymore. Fandral jokes that nothing interests Hogun anymore. Hogun drinks from his pint and notices a hooded figure staring at them. He sees that it is the smiling face of Thor.
Hogun stands and yawns saying he will go to bed. As he looks across the room he sees Loki in the shadows. Loki raises his hand motioning for him to sit down. Hogun sits down saying they're going to get a new story.
Volstagg tells the two that he'll go get some meat while they spread out and see what they can hear. Thor walks up asking about the story of three travelers who never went past the inn. Thor takes off his hood shocking Fandral and Volstagg. Hogun buries his face in his hand.
Volstagg asks how he got there and Thor tells him the Thunder Runner. Volstagg realizes that Thor stowed away, but Hogun knows it gets worse. Just then Loki walks up. Hogun believes they'll all be drawn and quartered.
Thor tells them to relax and grabs a stein from a waitress behind him shocking her. He lifts it up in a toast for their upcoming adventure. Before he can drink, a Fenris Wolf grabs his arm saying that was his ale.
Thor tells him not to touch the son of Odin but Fenris merely growls at him. Then the bartender slams his ax down on the table telling them to stop. Thor looks over at the bartender and back at Fenris. The bartender then calls out to Fenris who takes his stein and walks back to the counter.
Thor turns back to the table complaining of Fenris's smell. Fenris looks over and laughs. He takes a drink as Loki watches and casts a spell.
Fenris looks surprised as nothing comes out. He holds up the glass and shakes it.
Loki chants again and the ale spills all over the wolf. He growls and looks back at the boys. Loki laughs until he realizes the wolf is staring at him. Loki hides behind his brother as Fenris leaps forward.
Fenris pushes Thor off to the side and onto a table spilling all the drinks. He stands and starts attacking the nearby men. The bartender sees him then looks to see Fenris pushing aside a table to chase Loki. He tells the room to stop and grabs his ax.
Thor punches a man then sees the bartender leap over the counter and walk towards him. Fandral tells the man that someone is stealing his money. When the bartender looks Fandral hits him with a barstool, but to no effect. Fandral then flees across the room with the bartender chasing him.
Two Minotaurs walk up to Hogun and asks who started it. Hogun says it doesn't matter and hits one in the stomach with his mace. He then smacks the other in the head.
High above in the rafters, dwarves play their musical instruments. They look down below to see a creature approaching Hogun. On the other side of the room, Fenris is still chasing Loki.
Loki leaps over a table but Fenris knocks it away. He growls as Loki is backed against the wall. Fenris raises his claw as Thor body slams him across the room. Thor reaches for his sword but realizes that it's missing.
He asks Loki if he has seen the sword but his brother hasn't. Loki runs away suggesting they look for it. Thor turns to see the wolf standing up before him. He raises his arm and slams him across the room.
Volstagg stops fighting with a creature to drink from a keg. Thor then flies into the creature knocking him down. Volstagg and Hogun, who is held by another man, look down at him. Hogun smashes into the man and Volstagg raises his keg to slam it down on the man releasing Hogun. He sits on him and returns to drinking.
Fandral flies over the counter past two waitresses. He looks up to see women cooks in the kitchen. He starts to ask them out but a large hand pulls him out. The women then return to their work.
Thor asks if they have seen his sword and describes it as gold, jeweled, and perfectly balanced. The two look blank but then turn as they hear the wolf behind them.
Loki reaches up and tells Thor to try a wooden hammer he found. Thor looks at the hammer then back at Loki in confusion. Loki admits it is better than nothing. Thor shrugs and tosses it at Fenris.
Fenris dodges but it hits the bartender in the head. The hammer bounces off the pillars and rafters. It then cuts through the cord holding up the chandelier and dwarves. the chandelier falls and slams onto the wolf.
Thor looks at Loki and wonders if he used any magic to help him, but Loki denies any involvement. Thor looks back out to see his sword embedded in a table. Then the table flies up as Fenris stands and charges. Thor backs up as he, his brother, and the Warriors Three are surrounded.
Outside, Fandral and Hogun fly out through a window. Thor leaps through the adjacent window. Volstagg runs out the door followed by Loki. Loki turns and closes the door. He casts a spell causing Volstagg's keg to fly out and break on the door. He then commands the fire to light the ale. Volstagg looks back lamenting over his lost ale.
Hogun and Fandral make their way aboard the ship while Thor tries to untie it. Loki pushes Volstagg on board. Thor looks up to see the bartender break out through the burning door. He raises his ax and throws it. The ax embeds itself in the dock but cuts the rope. As the ship pulls away Thor is yanked into the boat.
Fandral and Loki pull Thor in as Hogun and Volstagg row away. They watch as the they sail away from the burning inn. Suddenly, Loki begins to laugh. Fandral looks back as Thor also cracks up. Soon everyone aboard is laughing heartily.
Fandral walks to the stern of the ship to guide it. Volstagg says that this is enough adventure and suggests they head home. Hogun and Fandral agree and say they can be there by morning.
However, Thor rejects the idea saying that he cam in search of Surtur's sword. Thor tells him that they will not return to Asgard until they find it. Loki stands in the center and tells them to go to Jotunheim.
The sail drops down and the ship sails away.
In the realm of Jotunheim, the Thunder Runner lies broken upon the shore. The head of the bow breaks off and lands at the feet of the Warriors Three. Hogun looks up saying he is close to weeping. Volstagg says that it wasn't a pretty boat but it worked well. Fandral says he appreciated it.
Thor bids to go forward and not look back. The three turn to see Thor and Loki standing on a hill above them. Thor looks away from the ship and makes his way up. Loki follows and soon the three join.
Fandral whistles while Hogun walks up next to him. He wonders how the man can whistle while his lips are frozen. Fandral shields his eyes with his hands while Hogun, Volstagg, and Thor bundle up in their coats.
Thor wonders why he is freezing when Loki looks perfectly calm. Loki jokes that it is because he is tougher than Thor. Thor retaliates by saying that Loki can deal with the first Frost Giant they find and the two laugh.
Hogun stops and readies his mace. He tells them that he sense movement and Fandral pulls out his sword. Thor goes for his weapon but remembers that it is gone. Fandral and Volstagg ready their swords.
Just then the ice breaks apart. A swarm of small creatures fly up and at the Asgardians. Fandral stops and notices that they are simply snow sprites. He jokes that Hogun is overreacting. One sprite flies over to Hogun and takes a piece of his coat. Hogun tries to get it back but the sprite flies away.
Thor reminds them to stay alert.
The five continue on their way. They wander through the intense winds and across the long and frozen plains. They inch their way along a ledge.
As they turn a corner on the mountain ledge Thor looks out and sees only more frozen land. He then collapses on the ground and leans against the wall. Volstagg also kneels down to rest.
Fandral looks over and calls out to Thor. Loki then walks over to his brother and sits next to him. He asks if Thor is giving up and he replies that Algrim was right, that the sword could never be found.
Loki asks how Algrim could know of it. Thor tells him that he knows Jotunheim because it killed his people. Loki responds that it wasn't the land itself, but the Frost Giants who live there. Thor responds that the realm will keep its secrets from them.
Loki then says that every secret has a clue and reminds him of the stories they memorized. Loki stands and walks to the edge. Thor says he loves the stories. Loki says he loves the story of Odin defeating Surtur. Thor claims he also loves that one.
Loki tells him that he should then remember the valley he is looking at. Thor stands and looks over. He recognizes it and points out the mountain where Surtur once stood. Thor and Loki imagine the story.
Surtur stood on top of the mountain billowing in fire. He held his sword ready. Thor says that Odin's spear Gungnir was the only weapon to rival the sword. Odin held up his spear as his six-legged horse reared.
Surtur raised his sword and brought it down. The energy from the swipe destroyed the mountain Odin stood on. Odin leapt down in time and raced across the plain. Thor and Loki look out over to the destroyed mountain, still with the mark of Surtur's sword.
Loki goes on with the tale saying that Odin knew he had to tire Surtur before defeating him. Odin readied his spear as the horse dodged one of Surtur's slashes. Surtur turned to see Odin riding down a mountain towards him. Thor explains that Surtur needed grew tired and needed both hands to lift the sword, leaving his chest open to attack.
Surtur saw Odin flying behind him. He raised his massive sword with both hands. Odin turned and raced towards the fire demon. Odin threw his sword hitting Surtur in the middle of his chest. Surtur was blasted back and his sword flew into a far mountain.
Thor sees the mountain from the story and realizes the sword must be there. The five once again make way across the icy fields and through a frozen valley. They approach a dark ice cave and enter. They walk along the ledge of a dark chasm.
Inside, Volstagg pants and leans against the wall. He tells the others that he cannot take another step and sits down. The others stop and look at him, but Hogun hears something and tells them to be alert.
Volstagg jokes that this time it is a moth or cricket but stops when he hears something underneath him. Thor tells him not to move. Volstagg looks up as the ice breaks underneath them. The cracks spread and all the Asgardians fall through the hole.
The five travelers falls down into the icy abyss.
Deep in the ice covered cavern, Thor lies unconscious in a pile of snow. He moves himself up. Behind him, Volstagg is also trying to stand and Fandral is just waking. Loki calls out to his brother telling him to come. Thor looks up to see him standing off to the side. Hogun also starts to wake.
Thor stands and goes to his brother. The Warriors three brush the snow off themselves and run after the two.
They make their way towards a fiery glow. They look up to see the legendary sword of Surtur embedded in the roof. The hilt of the sword gives off massive light illuminated the gloomy chamber.
Thor says it is magnificent. Volstagg notes the immense size of the sword. Thor tells them that the dwarves called it Elderstahl. He explains that it changes size for whoever holds it.
Loki turns and asks Hogun to free it. Hogun agrees and walks forward. He throws his mace at the ice holding the handle. The ice breaks apart but the cavern begins to collapse. The mighty sword breaks free and slams into the ground.
As the debris settles they see the sword nearly buried up to its hilt. Thor steps forward toward the glowing gem in the hilt. He sees his reflection in the sword and touches it causing it to glow. The other Asgardians shield their faces as the light grows too much.
After the light dissipates, the Asgardians watch as Thor pulls the now much smaller sword from the ice. He looks at it as the sword begins to glow once again. He holds it up and it bursts into flames. He can barely hold it as powers surges through the sword.
Thor points the sword away from him as the sword causes a massive blast of fire that bursts straight through the mountainside. Debris from the mountain falls far away. Inside the cavern, the roof begins to fall on them once again.
Thor struggles with the sword and tries to put it in his empty sheath. Thor fights with all his might and inserts it in causing the flames to stop and the cavern roof to cease falling. He looks up to see the massive hole left behind.
The others walk up to him as Thor says he has never felt anything like that before. Loki tells them that they cannot be found in Jotunheim with that weapon. Thor asks why not and believes that with that sword no one would stop them. Loki looks down at the sword and back up at his brother, worried. Thor merely smiles.
Thor walks through the cavern and the others follow.
A Dangerous Path
Outside, the group travel through a crevice to avoid the howling winds above. As they leave the crevice they shield themselves against the wind, but also hear growls among them. Hogun readies his mace.
Loki tells Thor that they must get to Asgard quickly. Thor agrees but tells them thy must go North. When Loki asks why Thor reveals that they need to get horses in Kona Lifandi. Loki is shocked that he would ask help from the Valkyries saying they would be lucky to leave alive, let alone with horses. They both know the Valkyries won't help, but Thor believes that Sif will.
Loki thinks that Sif is the real reason for going there. Thor stops and turns to his brother. He tells him that he is merely trying to get home. Thor and the others continue on their way.
Volstagg tells Hogun and Fandral where they are going. Fandral laments that the they are going to an equally inhospitable place. Hogun asks how many of the Valkyries Fandral is responsible for. Fandral states that there is a reason their archery targets look like him. The three look grim as they press on.
Elsewhere, a polar bear yawns near the edge of a forest of pine trees. It is tied, along with another bear, to a sleigh that a Frost Giant is working on. A snow sprite flies down to the hear of the Giant and whispers into it.
The Frost Giant stands and tells the others that there are intruders. The other giants look over to him. Another snow sprite digs through the snow and pops up at the feet of a giant holding Hogun's coat piece.
The giant takes the piece and lets the polar bear sniff it. It growls and the giant walks back to the sleigh patting the other bear on the back. The giant tells the others that the bears have the scent and tells the others to follow.
He grabs the reins and the bears run off. The other giants follow with their weapons. Behind them at the camp, their flag waves in the wind.
As the Asgardians wander through the plains, Loki suddenly drops and pulls down Thor. Thor looks up, angry, but Loki points to two frozen Frost Giant sentries. Loki tells him that they must find another way. Thor tells him that they both remember the realm charts and know there's no other way.
Hogun tells them they have other trouble. The group looks back to see the polar bears and Frost Giants approaching. Loki reveals that the sentries are just sleeping and they can sneak past. Thor tells them to go.
The group approaches the sentries so they may cross the bridge into the other realm. They calmly walk through the two guards but neither moves. Nevertheless, Fandral keeps his hand on his sword closely watching them. Hogun keeps his mace ready. Loki is nervous but glad when they finally make their way through.
Just then, the leader of the approaching Frost Giants calls out to the guards. One of the guards breaks through the ice covering his head. The leader tells the guards to stop them. The guard turns to see the Asgardians and breaks through the rest of the ice.
Thor tells the group to run as the guards approach them. The guards bring their axes down and slam them among the group. The Asgardians dodge the but Loki is knocked over. Thor turns to see the giants standing over his brother.
As the giants lift their massive axes, Thor orders them to stop and pulls out the sword. The two stop in shock as they see the fiery sword. Thor holds it up telling them that they are the sons of Odin and they mean no harm.
Thor approaches the guards and picks up Loki. He orders them to let them pass. Then he tells Loki to run. He starts to follow but so do the guards. Thor then swings the sword and launches the fire at the two guards.
One of the sentries looks on his horror as the blast obliterates the other. First his skin is ripped off, then the muscles, and finally the skeleton is destroyed. The first is knocked back. The force of the blow destroys the bridge knocking the approaching giants down.
As the bridge collapses the other giant tries to get to safety on Thor's side. Thor watches as the guard fails to get hold and falls into the nothingness below. The guard cries out as he falls.
Thor looks down horrified then back up at the other side. He sees the other giants scowling at him. He admits he didn't want that to happen and sheathes the sword. Loki walks up to him agreeing, but telling him that they must leave. The two boys walk away. Thor looks back to see the giants and continues on.
Back on the other side, the giants look across the ruined bridge near a large fire. The leader tells another to go and inform their king. The Frost Giant leaps onto a bear and rides off. The leader turns back to the bridge.
A mist begins to form at the end of the bridge as the Frost Giants attempt to rebuild the bridge.
I Need You
On the other side, Fandral cuts through a vine as the group make their way through a jungle. Volstagg takes off his coat and throws it to the side. Hogun readies his mace for possible dangers.
Behind them, Loki tells his brother that it wasn't his fault and that the giants attacked them. Thor replies that they were in the wrong and the giants were only protecting their land. Because of that, he killed two beings.
A trio of women on Pegasus fly towards large mushrooms growing on the tree. They land on a platform.
Down below, Thor climbs up at the base of the tree. He climbs a ledge and presses himself against the side to search for any approaching Valkyrie. Seeing nothing, he continues to climb.
Down below, Loki laments that they should not let Thor go alone. Fandral says that none of them should be going in there.
High above, Thor climbs the enormous wall. He reaches the top and makes his way through the tree. He then spots the land of Kona Lifandi, with a large pool of water surrounded by aqueducts and waterfalls. He looks down searching for Sif.
At one pool, women bath naked and dive into the water.
Sif approaches another pool and begins to take off her bathrobe. She unties the belt and begins to slip it off when Thor calls out to her. She quickly turns wraps the belt around his neck. She pulls him forward and grabs his neck with her hand. Thor tells her to stop.
She asks him why he came. Thor manages to get out "I need you" before he starts coughing. Sif is shocked and lets him go. Thor kneels over and coughs. He repeats that he needs her to get him five horses.
Sif gets angry and throws a punch at Thor. Thor grabs it saying that he doesn't have time for her anger. He pulls her in close and says he just needs help. She pulls her arm away saying she came there to leave Thor. She tells him he must go before he is found.
Thor approaches her revealing that he just came from Jotunheim. He says that terrible things happened and he must return home. She asks why he would go there and Thor reveals that he found the sword.
He pulls it partly out and it begins to glow. Sif realizes that it is the Sword of Surtur. Thor puts the sword away and again asks for help.
Just then an arrow flies into the tree next to his head. The two turn to see a group of Valkyries pointing arrows at him. One of the Valkyries tells Thor to get on the ground or they will kill him. Thor is suddenly knocked unconscious from a Valkyrie behind him
Thor awakes to find himself chained to the floor. He gets up and finds himself surrounded by Valkyries. He looks up to see Sif standing next to Brunhilde. Sif looks away, ashamed. Brunhilde holds Elderstahl.
Brunhilde says that Asgard made a mistake in sending him there. Thor rattles his chains saying she is mistaken in thinking he came alone. Brunhilde sets down the sword and sits. Brunhilde says he should have.
The two look up as the Warriors Three, tied together by their hands, are lowered into the room. Fandral asks his love "Hildie" to stop this but Brunhilde quickly yells at him to stop. She tells them that they will share the same fat as Odin's last spy.
She points to a column where a hanging skeleton is pierced with arrows. The Warriors Three, Thor, and even Sif are horrified at this thought.
Thor calls out to Brunhilde asking if she really believes a prince would act as a spy. He looks back at the dead spy and sees Loki hiding behind the column. Brunhilde says that she thinks he came to control Sif because she left him. Thor explains that he simply needs horses.
He begs to be released to they can return to Asgard. However, Brunhilde believes that he will deliver the sword to Odin so that the king could use it to further destroy those who would rise against him.
Thor claims he is only trying to keep the sword from falling into the wrong hands. Brunnhilde asks who he is to judge who is worthy. She then suggests that the sword should belong to her.
The Fire Sword
Suddenly she looks down and sees that the sword is missing. Loki runs in front of Thor and readies to unsheathe the sword. He orders the wenches to release the prisoners, and pulls out the sword just a little bit. Brunhilde is shocked as the fiery glow fills the room.
The Valkyries prepare their bows and arrows and aims at Loki. They all simply stare at each other.
Brunhilde smiles and steps down. She orders Loki to stop or they will kill Thor. Thor agrees saying that the sword must not be used anymore. Loki turns back to Thor then returns to Brunhilde, who orders him to give it to her. Loki lowers his head and sheathes the sword.
The Valkyries relax their bows and run forward to surround Loki. He extends the sword for Brunhilde. She takes the sword and walks back up to her throne, ordering them to be executed. Sif cries out but Brunhilde tells her that if she doesn't stop she will be executed also.
Just then Brunhilde notices that her breath is cold. She asks what is going on and Loki realizes that it's the Frost Giants.
The wall of the camp freezes and a giant breaks through it. The debris crashes into the camp and slams near the Asgardians. One piece knocks Brunhilde out cold.
A group of giants enter the compound. The leader, who chased the Asgardians before, tells them to kill everyone and get the sword. The Valkyries ready their bows. The giants step through the buildings and begin to smash them.
The Valkyries fire their arrows which stick in the giants but to no effect. The leader brings down his mighty ax among the Valkyries. A group of Valkyries fly in on horses but the giants smack them away. More arrows fly at the intruders.
Thor struggles to break the chains as the fight rages behind him. Sif comes to him but stops when the Warriors Three call out for help. She readies an arrow but a bear storms her. She fires and nicks the rope. She then leaps out of the throne room followed by the bear. She lands on her horse and flies away with the bear in pursuit.
The patrol leader makes his way to the throne room. He pushes the Warriors Three out of his way. The giant's shadow passes over Thor as he looks at the sword and unconscious Brunhilde. He renews his determination and eventually breaks the chains.
The giant approaches the sword as the three continue to swing around.
Thor grabs a spear and runs ahead of the giant. Brunhilde wakes to see the giant's foot coming down on her. Thor runs underneath and readies the spear against the ground. The spear pierces the giant's foot and he stammers back, letting go of his ax, in pain.
The giant stops and tells the murdering Thor that he is going to die. Thor and Brunnhilde look down and see Sif leading the bear back into the chamber. She approaches the giant and dodges at the last moment. The bear slams into the giant forcing him out the chamber and into a building below.
Sif flies around and lands. She gets off the horse and runs to Thor. The Warriors Three continue to swing and the rope finally breaks. The bear looks up and the three slam down on its head knocking it out.
Fandral opens the mouth and asks the others to help him get the fangs.
Sif helps Thor up. She looks down and begins to unlock the shackles. Brunnhilde gets up and sees the two. Sif gets the shackles off and the two hold hands staring into each other's eyes. Brunhilde continues watching.
Outside, the Valkyries watch as a giant forms a giant snowball. He then throws it at the Asgardians.
Loki steps in front of Sif and Thor and casts a spell. The ball turns to water and splashes them all.
The Warriors Three run up and Volstagg says not to show any mercy. But Brunhilde quickly stops them. They turn and see her holding the sword out to them. Thor asks why not let them help with the giants. Brunhilde says that the men assume they cannot defend themselves.
She gives the sword and tells them to take it. She orders Sif to provide horses and escort them to Asgard. Thor fastens the sword to his belt. Sif agrees and they turn to leave. Brunnhilde stops Sif saying that she should only return when she is truly ready to join them.
High above the now frozen Kona Lifandi, the six Asgardians fly away on Pegasus.
At the watering hole, the Pegasus drink up, disrupting the reflection of two moons. They hear the Asgardian horses and flee. The horses stop and the Einherjar and Algrim get off. They take out their swords and Ander leads the way forward. He tells them to search the area and they spread out.
Suddenly all of their helmets fall down over their eyes. They lift them up to see the six Asgardians waiting for them. Thor welcomes his trainer and they all step down. Thor approaches Ander and the two shake hands.
Volstagg jokes that that Warriors Three and Sif weren't qualified to train with the Einherjar. The Warriors Three laugh but Sif looks forward sternly.
Algrim approaches saying how glad he is to see the two boys. Thor says he is also glad to see a friendly face. Loki asks how the Einherjar found them. Algrim tells them that the Frost Giants threaten war.
Thor realizes it is because of him. Loki explains that it was merely an accident. Algrim says that doesn't matter because the Frost Giants want the sword as payment. Thor grasps the sword saying that it is a tool of death and cannot be handed over.
Algrim states that Odin agrees, which is why they are there. Algrim offers to take the sword so that he won't have to carry it any longer. Thor agrees saying that it is pure evil. Thor extends the sword out to Algrim. After a moment's hesitation, Algrim takes the sword.
He then looks down at the sword and turns, saying that it is the Frost Giants who are evil. Algrim walks away from the group and begins to mumble about the things that the Frost Giants did to his people.
The confused Thor calls out to his friend. Algrim talks about how even though the weapon now causes grief, it was once a source of hope. Thor approaches him saying that they should leave since the place is disturbing Algrim.
Algrim ignores him saying that the elves came to Odin first. He turns his head saying that Odin rejected their help and they were forced to asked Surtur for help in order to survive. Ander watches intently and prepares to pull out his sword.
The elf goes on to say that after Surtur helped Odin joined only to stop them. As his voice lowers, another Einherjar grabs his sword. Algrim explains that killing Surtur meant death for his people.
The worried Thor calls out to Algrim once again. Algrim says that he now knows why he lives. He lifts the sword and grabs the handle. He says he is to avenge the elves and punish those responsible.
Algrim quickly unsheathes the sword and swings it around. He fires it and Ander quickly leaps up. The blast obliterates the Einherjar with one mighty hit. Thor cries out in horror.
Algrim looks up to see Ander in the air. Ander throws his sword and cuts Algrim across the cheek. Without looking Algrim fires the sword and obliterates Ander. He then turns the blast to the remaining Asgardians. They just manage to dodge out of the way.
Algrim looks up, his cheek bleeding, and proceeds forward into the steam. He comes forward and sees three of the Pegasus drinking. He looks around and sees nothing. He sheathes the sword and mounts the Pegasus.
He calls out saying that if any of them return to Asgard he will kill them. The Pegasus then flies up away. Thor and Loki hide behind a rock. As Algrim leaves Thor looks out to watch.
The Asgardians emerge from the steam. Loki asks what they should do and Thor looks down at Ander's sword. He pulls the sword out of the ground and tells them to find the horses so they can stop him.
Behind them, the returning Asgardians stand on a hillside surveying the conflict. Loki realizes they are too late. They look up to see the storm still surrounding the palace. Thor is shocked as he realizes his father is in battle.
He orders Sif and the Warriors Three to help fend off the Frost Giants while he and Loki go to help their father. Loki leaps from Sif's horse to Thor's and the they fly off. The Frost Giants see the group and throw large ice shards at them but miss.
As they fly above Asgard Thor and Loki pull away and fly up towards the palace. Sif and the Warriors Three land and dismount.
Back in the palace, Odin falls through the ceiling and crashes to the floor. Through the smoke and dust, Algrim waves the sword clearing a path for him. In his crater, Odin claims that Algrim will gain nothing. He struggles but his hand collapses.
Algrim walks over to him and stands over the king. He says that it is enough that the war Odin sought to avoid is upon them, and that Asgard, which he protected over the Dark Elves, will fall. He lifts the sword again. Odin can only look out. As Algrim brings it down Odin closes his eyes preparing for death.
Algrim's attack is stopped by Thor wielding Gungnir and causing sparks to fly around. Thor pushes Algrim back and prepares the charged spear for battle. He tells the elf that the sword will kill no one else. Algrim tells him he will kill all in the House of Odin. Algrim fires the sword and Thor protects himself.
Loki walks over to Odin and cradles him in his arms. He tells his father to hold on as he starts to cry.
Thor fires at Algrim forcing him back into the far wall. Algrim hits the wall then crashes to the ground. Thor walks forward through the flames with the spear ready. Algrim stands and scowls at Thor. He then raises the sword up.
Thor is shocked to see all the flames in the room dissipate as they move towards the sword. He is left it total darkness save for the sword. Algrim then sheathes the sword sending them into complete darkness.
Thor lights up Gungnir casting the area in a blue glow. Behind him, Algrim pulls out the sword and swipes at Thor. He fires at Thor who dodges to the side.
Loki and Odin are bathed in the conflicting lights of the sword and spear. He looks up at the battle, tears streaming down his face.
Algrim once again sheathes the sword and disappears. Thor looks around waving Gungnir but cannot find him. Algrim appears behind him as he takes another swipe. Thor fires Gungnir but Algrim is gone. Back in darkness, Thor looks around but sees no one.
He then stands tall and puts the spear on his shoulder closing his eyes. Algrim runs behind him and Thor hears the footsteps. He turns and throws the spear. Algrim is hit and pinned to the wall. The partly unsheathed sword lies on the ground.
Algrim struggles to look up and sees Thor approaching. Thor grabs the spear and pulls it out dropping Algrim who collapses to the ground. Thor tells him he cannot forgive him for what he has done. he grabs the spear with both hands and readies it. Algrim stares at his attacker.
But Thor tells him that he will not forget all the years Algrim was his friend and family. He drops the spear though Algrim still scowls at him. Just then Loki cries out and the swords blast erupts behind Thor.
The blast hits Algrim blasting off his flesh exposing his skeleton and then obliterating any last trace of him. As the flames stop the shocked Thor looks up to see the ruined area covered in flames. Loki stands behind him with the sword.
Thor looks horrified then turns to Loki. He holds the flaming sword as tears begin to stream down his eyes once again. Thor walks over and takes the sword from him saying that everything is alright.
Loki finally looks at his brother and closes his eyes. Thor puts a hand on his shoulder and Loki hugs and cries onto Thor's shoulder. Thor hugs his brother back.
Just then they hear a loud crash. Thor breaks the hug telling Loki to stay with their father. He turns and runs out leaving Loki and Odin alone in the crumbling room.
Outside, Thor guides Odin's chariot out through the gate and into the fields. Geirmarr rides forward on his bear and raises his war hammer. Thor rides through the ranks of the giants and towards the Frost Giant prince.
Geirmarr brings his hammer down and shatters the chariot. Thor leaps up and runs along the enormous handle. He continues up Geirmarr's arm and leaps off his head to land in front of Thrym. The surrounding Frost giants aim their weapons at him.
Thor speaks to Thrym and bows. He holds up Elderstahl and offers it to the king, and himself as a prisoner, in the hope of ending the war. The king listens to his words.
Geirmarr pushes his way through the army ranks and grabs the sword from him. He unsheathes it causing it to grow for his size. He then readies the sword suggesting they kill Thor. Thor then prepares for death as the surrounding giants raise their weapons.
Just then, Thrym stops them. Thor looks up in shock as the king asks about Odin. Thor bows his head telling him that Algrim betrayed them and nearly killed his father. Thrym asks about the elf. Thor looks up revealing that Loki killed him.
Thrym stands and walks down the stairs. He reveals that he warned Odin against helping Algrim.
Going on, Thrym says that many desire the weapon as it allows anyone to rise up against his kingdom. Therefore, he accepts the offering. He announces to the troops that the war is over.
Geirmarr walks forward saying that they are nearly victorious. Thrym grabs his son's hand telling him not to underestimate the Asgardians. He takes the sword saying that they have what they wanted.
The troops begin to march out. Thor still kneels on the ground at the king's feet. Thor asks what is to happen to him. Thrym walks up reminding him that he killed to Jotuns. Thor bows his head. But Thrym explains that his offering saved countless others. Thor looks up in shock.
Thrym covers the sword's blade with ice, sheathing it, putting out the flames. He tells the boy to go back and help his father. Thor looks up in wonder as he sees the army leaving.
When Family is Threatened
Later, Loki sits in the temple before a bowl of water. He waves his hand over the water causing it to ripple and form another snake. Loki and the water snake stare at each other. The snake then moves forward to strike but Loki holds up his hand stopping it. He then breathes out causing it to freeze.
Thor then calls out to his brother. The ice snake then shatters and falls to the ground. Thor watches from the door then walks forward. He tells Loki that he has been hiding in the temple for too long. Loki says he's not hiding and he likes it there. Loki waves his hand and the ice quickly evaporates.
Thor tells him he knows Loki regrets his actions. Loki corrects him saying that he wanted revenge, and believes that he would have done the same thing in Algrim's place. Thor claims that no one knows what will happen when their family is threatened. He turns and says he hopes they never have to find out again.
Elsewhere, Odin lies bandaged in his bed. A large replica of the Yggdrasill is behind him on the wall. Thor calls out asking if he will see a visitor. Odin looks over, left eye not opening, and sees his son in the doorway. He tells his son he can enter.
Thor walks up and Odin asks about Loki. Thor responds that he will be okay, so Odin asks about him. Thor claims he will also be fine, though he looks away.
Odin asks what is troubling him. Thor claims he should have listened to him and just wanted to prove himself. Odin tells him he should also have listened. He explains that Thor was coming to him as a man but he thought of him as a boy.
Thor turns and says he was a child and his mistakes caused a war. Odin admits that is true, but reminds him that in the end Thor managed to find peace despite the cost. He grabs his son's hand turning him back to him. He tells him that the House of Odin is in good hands and that Thor has made the kingdom pround. Thor finally smiles.
Elsewhere, Volstagg drinks from his stein. The Warriors Three are back on the raised platform in front of the crowd. Hogun sits off to one side. Fandral has his two ladies. Volstagg tells him that before they could even get to Jotunheim they stopped at a pub with the worse creatures of the nine realms.
Fandral holds up a necklace with the bear's tooth on it to one of the women. She asks if it is from a bear, but Fandral claims it is from a wolf. He holds up another tooth necklace for the other woman. He tells them that wolves eat bears, like he does.
The other woman asks how many wolves were after him. Fandral claims it was seven. Volstagg interrupts saying it was ten. Hogun speaks up claiming it was thirty-four. The four look over at Hogun to turns his head to them.
Thor speaks up asking if they are lying again. He walks forward and Volstagg explains that it was dark. Fandral pipes in saying there were no torches lit. Thor then tells the crowd that there were at least fifty.
Hogun is shocked at hearing that. He stands and agrees. He lifts his mace telling them that luckily he knows to how to disembowel. Volstagg goes on to talk about their fur and fangs. As Thor walks away Volstagg tells them that the creatures tried to eat them. Fandral stands joking that they went after Volstagg first, and pats his friend on the stomach.
In the barn, Sif brushes her Pegasus's wings. She looks over at the door as Thor approaches. She says that she hears Odin is getting better, and Thor agrees. She says she is glad to hear that. Thor pets the muzzle of the horse. She turns back and continues brushing the winged horse.
Thor walks around the Pegasus asking about her being recruited into the Einherjar. She wonders if he had anything to do with it. Thor claims that she proved herself in battle and got in herself. He then says he is glad that it wasn't just a mere woman who beat him with the barn tool. Sif wonders if he wants a rematch and Thor agrees.
They walk out in front of the Pegasus. Just as Sif reaches for her sword Thor grabs her arm pulling her close. They stare into each other's eyes and kiss.
In Ander's honor, Thor wears his mentor's winged hat and red cape. He then lead the Einherjar before coming to Earth.
Thor came to Midgard for reasons unknown. There he helped the humans defeat several superpowered villains. Wrecker, Piledriver, and Bulldozer walk up towards her. High above, Thunderballs carries the gamma emitter. He levels it towards the ground and activates it. It begins to glow as he aims it at Jane.
Just as it's ready to fire, Thunderball is knocked back and the gamma emitter falls out of his hands. He knocks one container up into the air and smashes three more. As he stops, Mjolnir flies off his stomach and back into the hand of Thor the Thunderer.
Thor floats in the air watching. He looks up and a lightning bolt tears through the otherwise calm sky. He orders the "mortals" to move back so he can deal with them. Jane watches as he flies towards the four foes.
He lands in front of Piledriver and Bulldozer. Bulldozer sneers and charges. When he gets close Thor sidesteps him and hits him over the head with Mjolnir damaging his helmet. Bulldozer flies into a large pile of containers.
Thor turns just as Piledriver runs up and punches him across the face. Thor staggers back and Piledriver continues punching. Thor holds up Mjolnir and when Piledriver gets close he hits him in the stomach with the handle. Piledriver staggers back and collapses.
Just then, Wrecker whacks Thor with his crowbar across the back. Thor looks up and Wrecker hits him again. Thor flies across the docks. Wrecker is pleased with himself and turns. However, he hears something and turns again.
Thor bursts out of the containers with a lightning charged Mjolnir. He slams the hammer down but Wrecker holds up his crowbar in time. The two stare each other in the face. Thor says if Wrecker surrenders he'll show mercy. Wrecker then kicks Thor in the stomach and watches him stammer back. He then knocks Thor away again.
Above them, Thunderball rubs his head as he walks towards the ledge. He looks over and sees Thor rolling on the ground and Wrecker walking up. He looks up and sees a container above Thor.
Thunderball swings his ball to throw at the crane. The crane sways and the container falls right on Thor. The crane then falls over onto the container. Piledriver, Bulldozer, and Wrecker walk up as Thunderball drops down, all laughing.
Wrecker begins to gloat, calling Thor and idiot, when Mjolnir flies out and knocks them all away. Piledriver dents a nearby container and falls. Bulldozer and Thunderball falls far behind where they were.
Thor calmly walks out of the smoke. As it does he sees that Wrecker has taken Jane hostage with the crowbar to her throat. He tells Thor to back off or he'll kill her. Thor asks if he has any honor to which Wrecker replies no. Thor tells him he should be familiar with attacking an opponent from behind.
Wrecker looks back just in time to see Mjolnir hit him in the face. Jane crouches down as Wrecker goes flying into a pole. He slumps down and passes out.
Mjolnir flies back to Thor and he looks towards Jane who thanks him. Thor wonders why should would go into this situation when she has no powers, armor, or weapons. She explains that she needed to help them and that's what she does. She introduces herself.
Thor smiles and is about to introduce himself. Just then a bright light appears overhead. Heimdall appears asking for Thor. He tells Thor that he carries a message from his father Odin. Asgard is under siege and he must return home.
Thor turns back to Jane and bids her well. He leaps up and flies towards the Rainbow Bridge. Jane covers her eyes as the light overhead disappears. She stands alone among the wreckage from the battle.
Hulk vs Thor
Thor watches from the top of the gate while Sif wonders what troubles Thor. Although they have won, he regrets the yearly cycle with more dying each year. Sif reminds Thor that the cycle will only break through Ragnarok, the end of days. Thor decides to go to the palace to wait for Odin to wake.
As the Warriors Three and Balder drink in triumph they hear the roar of the Hulk. Volstagg initially thinks it to be only another troll. The Warriors Three ride their horses to meet the "troll" only to be easily punched aside by the incredible Hulk.
Loki enjoys the power but Amora warns that Hulk is fighting him as well the Asgardians.
The Warriors Three try again but are still easily defeated. Balder watches as Hulk crushes Hogun with a battering ram then throws it at him. Balder dodges it as the ram smashes right through the gate. Hulk runs up to Balder and punches him away. As Hulk is pounding on other Asgardians Balder blows a horn calling forth reinforcements.
Sounding the Alarm
Sif is confused by the horn, as she believes all of Asgard's enemies lie defeated. Rising from his place at Odin's side Thor dons his helmet and flies off to Balder, leaving Sif behind to protect Odin.
Back at the gate, Balder fights gallantly against Hulk but is not strong enough. Hulk crushes Balder's helmet as he approaches. Suddenly, a bolt of lightning strikes the sky and the hammer of Thor, Mjolnir, knocks the Hulk back. Thor arrives from the sky and calls Mjolnir back to him.
Thor lays the tired Balder down as Hulk jumps to meet him then tackles him away. Hulk throws Thor then punches him even farther. Thor recovers and tries to reason with the doctor inside the creature to no avail. Instead Thor hears the voice of Loki, speaking through the Hulk. Hulk then begins to continually punch Thor. Amora watches Loki in his glee but seems disturbed.
Thor frees himself and hits Hulk repeatedly with Mjolnir. Thor eventually knows Hulk into a statue of Odin. Hulk grabs the statue and throws it at Thor but the god of thunder easily smashes through it and continues at the Hulk. However, Hulk grabs Thor, smashes him into the ground, then throws him onto a temple. Thor digs himself from under the rubble to find Hulk smashing him through the roof into the temple below. Thor then drops Mjolnir.
Loki then tries to get Hulk to pick up Mjolnir to use against Thor. However, even Hulk's great strength cannot lift it. Though Loki is determined to use the hammer, Amora warns that his own rage fuels the Hulk and may break the spell.
Mjolnir suddenly rises up and returns to Thor. Thor then calls down a bolt of lightning directed at the Hulk that destroys the temple around them. Thor then fires another bolt at the mighty beast, causing him great pain.
Loki is physically knocked back as the spell is broken. Amora informs Loki and Bruce that the Hulk, in incarnation of rage, is now free to do as it wishes.
No Going Back
Thor lands and spots the still smoking Hulk, thinking Loki is still in control. Hulk looks up and attacks Thor, knocking Mjolnir away as he breaks Thor's hand.
Through a magical ball, Loki watches the Hulk smash Thor and laughs. Amora seems to regret what is happening but Loki reminds her that it is because of her "black, broken heart" that this is all possible.
Bruce tries to warn Loki about the Hulk's savagery. But Loki has had enough of Bruce's whining and kills him.
Hulk pounds Thor into a mountain leaving a large crater. Hulk continues smashing Thor until he makes a tunnel through the mountain. Thor flies out, skidding along the forest on the other side. Broken and battered, Thor tries to make an attack but Hulk stops him and continues pounding on him. When Thor appears to be down for good Hulk makes a few more pounds, then spots the light of Odinsleep.
Hulk jumps away towards the palace. A mysterious shadow passes over Thor. Thor initially believes that he sees Hela, the Asgardian god of Death. However, it is really Amora, who has come to aid Thor against the Hulk. She states that she was angry when he chose Sif over her but she still loves him. She then kisses him giving him back his health and strength. Thor then asks here where Loki is.
Loki watches as Hulk climbs towards Odin. Suddenly Mjolnir bursts through the wall, hailing the entrance of Thor. Amora enters and Loki realizes she betrayed him. Thor states that the Hulk is be returned to Midgard and Loki will pay. Loki agrees stating that the Hulk provided him enough amusement.
However, Amora notes that since Bruce died in Asgard Hela claimed his soul. Therefore, the Hulk cannot be returned to Midgard.
As Hulk makes his approach towards Odin, Brunnhilde, the Valkryies, and Asgardian warriors make another stand against the mighty creature. Brunnhilde promises places in Valhalla for all of them. However, Hulk quickly proves too strong for them.
Thor berates Loki, stating that Hulk will not stop until all of Asgard is destroyed bringing Ragnarok upon them all. Thor then sends Amora to Sif's side to protect Odin. She is reluctant but does as he wishes and teleports there. Thor then tells Loki to send whatever dark forces he has left to aid the Asgardians against the Hulk. Thor tells Loki that they both will go to Hel.
Thor and Loki arrive in the bowels of Hel. The two see the numerous spirits of those fallen during Odinsleep. Loki comments on what a busy time Odinsleep is for his daughter, Hela. Loki torments Thor with the idea that his friends are also there, but Thor threatens to leave Loki behind.
Back in his home Bruce and Betty sit by the fireplace as Bruce Jr. sleeps. Bruce comments on how nice everything is. Suddenly lightning cracks the sky and the voice of Hela is carried over the winds. Bruce looks down at his son and his wife wanting to be with them. When he turns around he finds his son gone and the same when he turns back to Betty.
Suddenly, Bruce finds himself in a dark limbo with only Hela. Then he is taken to Hela's chamber with Loki and Thor. Thor asks for Bruce's help but he just wants to be with Betty again.
Thor tries to appeal to Bruce's sense of honor but still Banner resists
Fight With Me
Loki then tells his daughter that the Hulk's soul is rightfully hers and convinces her to bring the Hulk to Hel and merge the two halves.
Hulk is about to smash Odin when he is transported away in a green puff of smoke.
Hela informs Bruce that although he does not have to forsake the afterlife's rewards he must still become whole. Just then Hulk is transported to Hel. He sees Bruce and smashes a large part of the cliffside off. Hulk follows Bruce down trying to destroy his other half when Bruce is teleported away by Hela. Bruce and the three gods watch as Hulk lands amongst the souls of Hel and is buried in rubble.
Hulk frees himself and begins attacking the souls, but without success. Try as he might the souls cannot be smashed or even grabbed. However, he does manage to make them go away by using the force of his fists to blow them away.
Hela curses Loki for tricking her into bringing Hulk to her realm. But Thor says that he and Loki will capture the Hulk. Loki is hesitant but Thor reminds him that if he does not he will fight alone. Loki ponders the fact that they are already in Hel and stays behind to watch the two fight.
As Hulk vainly fights the spirits Thor knocks him down with a bolt of lightning. Hulk comes at the god of thunder but Thor dodges and knocks him back with Mjolnir. Hulk makes another attack but again Thor dodges and uses a lightning charged Mjolnir to knock him away. Thor blasts Hulk with a powerful bolt of lightning, but the Hulk still jumps out to make another attack and tackles him into a statue of Hela.
Loki watches as Hulk does a more damage to Thor, then enters with a spell to restrain the Hulk. Thor uses his lightning attack again but Hulk breaks free and grabs the two stepbrothers.
I'm the One
As he is about to smash the two, Bruce runs up to Hulk stating he's the one the green giant wants. Hulk runs up to smash Bruce but in a flash of light the two are merged into one again.
Thor runs up to Hulk and the giant says he is tired and collapses, turning into Bruce once again. Thor berates Loki for thinking Bruce to be weak and states that he has a lot of courage. Hela lifts Bruce and claims him to be too powerful to keep but to valuable to lose to Valhalla. So she returns Bruce to Midgard to stay.
Loki tries to flee but Thor stops him so that he may answer for the damage he has done to Asgard. However, since Hela released a soul she demands that one take its place. Thor prepares for a fight but she instead choses Loki. Loki is dragged down into the ground by the souls around him as he begs for Thor's help.
Thor contemplates fighting for Loki's soul but decides against it. As Thor leaves Hela reminds him that she wants his soul too.
Defended to the End
Thor returns to Asgard to find the palace in ruins. Both Sif and Enchantress see him but Sif runs to embrace him as Amora leaves with a look of sadness on her face. After missing all of the battle Odin finally awakes from his slumber.
Later Odin holds a ceremony for the brave actions of those while he slept. He honors the sacrifices and the ones who assisted. Amora is on her own looking down at the magical ball seeing Thor and Sif kiss. Meanwhile, Loki is trapped in amber deep in Hel, overlooked by his daughter as she feasts. Odin is watched by all the heroes of Asgard including Thor, Sif, Brunnhilde, Balder, Volstagg, Hogun, and Fandral. Odin makes special mention of Bruce Banner, the mortal who showed the gods what it is to be a legend, and dedicates that day's feast to him.
