Thor: Son of Asgard # 1 Explained

The legend of Thor begins in the Kingdom of Asgard, home to the mighty Norse deities. A beautiful and mystic Rainbow bridge called the Bifrost leads to the City of Asgard. The eternal city and its dwellers are the stuff of legends. The Bifrost is guarded by the ever-vigilant Heimdall.

After crossing the Bifrost the towering Gates of the City of Asgard can be seen. The City has a central square called the Square of The All-Father. This square is used for all important events. The Square is located right in front of the Imperial Palace.

The Imperial Palace consists of the Great Hall of Heroes. This hall is dedicated to memorials of heroes, who have sacrificed their lives for Asgard. The Hall leads to the Doors of Dramir. The Ultimate Seat of Power lies behind these Doors. The Seat is the majestic Throne of The King of Asgard.

Odin, the All-Father, King of Asgard is a compassionate and wise king. Odin reigns over nine worlds. He has a cabinet of advisers for handling affairs of state. He also commands an army of great warriors, who help him counter threats to his Kingdom.

The story starts off with Thor trying his luck at lifting Mjolnir, the mighty Uru hammer of Odin. He gives up and sits down after a lot of effort. Both his friends Balder and Sif seem amused by this. They try to comfort him by telling him that he will one day lift the hammer and rule all of Asgard.

They start talking about Loki, Thor’s half-brother. They start arguing about how evil he is. Meanwhile, Loki is listening to all of this. He convinces himself that he hates the trio of Thor, Balder and Sif. He wants to hurt them so his mischievous mind come up with an idea!

He casts a spell on three spiders and turns them into huge monsters. They attack the trio, who defend themselves with weapons. They kill them with quite ease.

Because of all the nosie, Odin himself shows up at the scene. He looks at the scene and asks them about it. They tell him that they took care of the spiders by working together. He tells them to come to his throne room at sunset.

Later on in the throne room, he tells them that it is time for them to prove themselves worthy. He wants them to go on a quest. He wants them to travel Asgard and collect four mystic elements; which will be used to forge a new enchanted weapon. The weapon will be a sword which he will bestow upon the most deserving Asgardian.

The first element is a scale from the hide of the dragon Hakurei for which they will travel to Nastrond. From there they must make their way to Jotunheim where they will find the second element. They would need to pluck a feather from the wing of a snow eagle named Gnori.

The third element would be a jewel from deep in the mines of Jennia. Last but not the least, the fourth element would be a vile of enchanted water from the lake in Lilitha.

The trio look bewildered. This time Loki is amused.

Odin sends Loki to clean up the trophy room of the slain spiders. Where as the trio sets off on an adventure into the wilds of Asgard.

Meanwhile, evil is lurking close by…..
