Editor’s Note: Mark here. I’d like to thank Mirko for his fantastic event. You’ll be seeing, over the next few weeks, datafiles for most of the things discussed here in the event, so keep your eyes peeled.
Sin, Red Skull’s daughter, and adoptive daughter of Cul, had to face fear, hatred, sadness and failure. With the Serpent’s defeat, she is lost again.
Thor has never made his Father proud, not even when he ruled Asgard in his absence, but now for the first time, on his deathbed, Odin is finally proud.
Sin wakes up in a confused state helped by what seems a insectoid-like sentient race, that convince her she has now the knowledge on where the journey continues.
Thor is dead, and even though Odin watches on him, this has led to the isolation of the All-Father for feelings of guilt towards his son and his kingdom. It was a meager victory against the forces of Evil. The burden is laid upon the inhabitants of the ruined City of Asgard, and Odin’s guilt is always lurking in the shadows.
On Earth, there is a lot to mend, a lot to rebuild. The humans have shown an irreducible courage and a strength with no equal. But they were on the verge of breaking, and they are far more broken now.
Few Heroes have died, symbols of power and cities have been destroyed and the population feels the burden that allowed the Serpent to seize Earth in the first place… But there is hope again.
Among others, Captain America’s Shield, the beacon of hope that for years has protected the world is broken. The Dwarves in Nidavellir, with the help of Iron Man rebuild it but one single crack can’t be fixed. Even though it doesn’t look as perfect as before, Tony reassures Steve that the Shield has never been so strong and Steve is content he has a mark to show the pain suffered and overcome.
Thor’s spirit remains dead until Loki embarks on a journey to save his brother, retrieving the lost cane which used to revert into Mjolnir and bringing it back to Donald Blake, his past human incarnation. This could recreate the link between the two spirits and could allow Thor’s return. Chances are that the Serpent itself, once his killer will be brought back to life, would be able resurrect if some will find a way.
Sin, helped by these enigmatic figures (Intelligencia) contacts her old lover Crossbones and with him embarks on a journey to retrieve the Hammers of the Worthy, which have been safely hidden by several organizations across the globe, both criminal and security.
On earth a new Asgard city is rebuilt with joint efforts of repulsor technology and Asgardian magic and named Asgardia. After some time spent floating around Broxton, the all-mother decides to move the city in space, and let it float around the moon to have a better control over Asgardians.
