When Warfare of the Realms #four begins, a workforce of covert Avengers has been led by Freyja to Svartalfheim, the Darkish Elf realm, to destroy the Black Bifrost. Most followers of the Thor motion pictures can be acquainted with the conventional Bifrost, also called the ‘Rainbow Bridge.’ Whereas Malekith was in a position to launch his assaults on the 9 Realms unexpectedly, the reality ultimately got here out: Malekith’s utilizing his personal Black Bifrost to remain one step forward of the heroes, traversing the entire realms as he pleases. Since Freyja was compelled to look at because the warfare started with Loki being eaten by his Frost Large father, she is out for revenge that solely bloodshed can provide her. However proper because the workforce is about to destroy the black bridge, Freyja can really feel that Asgard’s personal rainbow bridge was simply destroyed by Malekith’s forces. So if she goes by means of with destroying the black bridge… then each her workforce and the heroes unfold throughout the realms can be stranded. The plan immediately modified: maintain the road, and management the Black Bifrost so long as doable.

However this resolution is made understanding full effectively that Freyja can be left alone to ‘maintain the door open’ behind them.

Clearly setting apart the drunkenness and ego which have outlined him over the previous a number of months, Odin is given new function upon seeing Freyja put in hurt’s manner. Because the All-Father marches off to enter the black Bifrost and save his spouse with solely his spear in hand, he’s stopped by Tony Stark and Screwbeard the dwarf… who proclaim they’ve constructed an excellent new weapon for Odin.
In basic Tony Stark vogue, he talks. He reveals what nice weapon he, Screwbeard, and Shuri have been engaged on since its tease in Warfare of the Realms #three.

However now that his work is unveiled to the King of Asgard, Screwbeard is taking the entire credit score.
Explaining that he did all of the work whereas Tony simply talked so much, the comedian confirms that it was constructed in keeping with Iron Man’s designs. And as soon as it is revealed, there is no such thing as a doubt. This weapon is a swimsuit of armor match for a king… and when he arrives on Svartalfheim decided to avoid wasting his spouse, even Freyja should see her husband in a model new mild.

However the longer you look, the extra particulars come out. Just like the All-Father himself, the swimsuit solely has one eye. On the middle of his chest just isn’t an arc reactor, however the Valknut–a basic image from Norse mythology, also called ‘The Odin Knot.’ The usage of this image reveals the grim magnificence with which Tony, Shuri, and Screwbeard designed this armor for the daddy of the gods. The valknut is related to each dying and Odin… a darkish omen for what’s to come back. Odin is set to avoid wasting his spouse, however Freya has completely different plans. She is aware of destroying the black bridge may very well be a turning level within the warfare, chopping off Malekith’s reinforcements.
In order the All-Father and All-Mom combat facet by facet towards the limitless waves of Malekith’s forces, they’re ultimately overrun and pinned down. The 2 gods flip to eachother, and profess their love as they destroy the black bridge–and every part else round it, themselves included.
