Synopsis / Summary / Plot

Thor #1 Synopsis by Marvel Comics
A man holding children hostage at a day care demands Thor's presence. When Thor arrives, the man, Hank Brandley, tells him he's really Heimdall. Desperate to believe him, Thor takes Hank to Asgard where Hank admits he is actually a mental patient. Thor returns Hank to Earth, not knowing something sinister escapes Odin's imprisonment in Asgard.

Meanwhile, soldiers lug a heavy box onto a ship. Their commander, Colonel Case, touches the box, causing it to explode.

In Hel, Volla tells Hela that he whom she desires will be in Hel shortly.

On Earth, Thor drops off Hank at a hospital where Jane Foster is an attending physician. Jane asks why he isn't with the Avengers at the docks. Thor races there, finding the Avengers battling and losing to the Destroyer, now possessed by Colonel Case. Thor buys them enough time to help the bystanders get clear. EMT Jake Olson tries to rescue a woman trapped under a car. A gasoline explosion pelts Jake with shrapnel, killing him. 

Destroyer opens his visor and turns Thor into a charred husk.
