|Thor:||You know what's coming to Midgard. The mortals need our help.|
|Odin:||The mortals may be beyond our help.|
|Thor:||What are you saying?|
|Odin:||That Asgard must see to Asgard's well-being.|
|Thor:||Even as the Worthy overrun Midgard?|
|Odin:||My energies are devoted to Asgard. My powers are devoted to Asgard. So too should yours be!|
|Thor:||Father. You must listen...|
"In the wake of Thor's disappearance, S.H.I.E.L.D. looks to strange and unlikely allies to handle the growing threats."
— Mission Preview
|Maria Hill:||We've tracked the Wrecking Crew to the Savage Land. They're up to something. Hunting down the Worthy's hammers, maybe? Have we recorded a hammerfall here?|
|Shanna:||It's a lot of noise and distraction covering for the Executioner. I saw him emerge from a portal soon after the Wrecking Crew's attacks began.|
|Tony Stark:||Ah. That makes a little more sense.|
|Enchantress:||Poor Skurge. He is driven beyond reason by jealousy. He wished me to fight with him in this battle to come, and I refused him.|
|Enchantress:||Stay your hand, mortal. I am here in peace. What does it benefit me if Midgard burns and the Odinson dies protecting it? I will offer what assistance I may.|
|Beta Ray Bill:||If he is a fool, Amora, you have made him so. It is his jealousy over you that brings him to destroy this world.|
|Nick Fury:||Who the hell--?|
|Tony Stark:||You've never met Beta Ray Bill, Nick? He's... well, I don't know what he is. What are you, Bill?|
|Beta Ray Bill:||Korbinite.|
|Agent Coulson:||What's Korbinite?|
|Beta Ray Bill:||I am the last survivor of a world destroyed by Surtur. I wield Stormbreaker, a hammer given to me by Odin himself... and like Amora, though purer of will, I am here to battle the enemies of Asgard and Earth.|
|Enchantress:||Let's not cast aspersions, now. You will find me a quite useful ally, I think.|
|Maria Hill:||We'll see. Bill, did you say Surtur? The fire demon?|
|Beta Ray Bill:||Yes. The Executioner works on his behalf of the burning devil. If you have not seen him yet, you will soon.|
|Agent Coulson:||Then we sure could use Thor. Is he...?|
|Enchantress:||Yes. Where is the Odinson?|
|Beta Ray Bill:||I do not know. Come. We must hunt down the Executioner.|
Send a hero to ride shotgun with a field team bringing these captured Iso-Saurs to a research lab.
The Hauk'ka are demanding they be allowed access to captured Iso-Saurs. Send a hero to escort them. We don't need trouble with the locals while we're trying to save their ungrateful lives.
We've caught a stray Jotun trying to get into the Savage Land from the outside world. Send a hero to bring it in.
|Ka-Zar:||Zabu has caught himself a Jotun coming over the mountains from Antarctica into the Savage Land. He might be a scout, he might be lost...|
|Tony Stark:||He might be anything, but we won't know until we bring him in and interrogate him. Who do we have that speaks Jotun?|
|Tony Stark:||Nothing. Jotun are even better at clamming up than Hand ninjas.
Even so, where there's one Jotun there are bound to be others. Worth knowing for future reference.
We're rounding up Iso-Saurs as fast as we can, but one of our field teams has run into something unexpected: an A.I.M. base in the jungle.
|Maria Hill:||Medusa, we need you to break off your Iso-Saur safari and engage a new target.
There's an A.I.M. base near your location. We missed it until now.
|Medusa:||I thought we had all those cleared out.|
|Maria Hill:||That's what we thought, too. Now you can help us finish the job.|
|Medusa:||You should send a team out here to go through this base. They were building all kinds of gadgets here.|
|Maria Hill:||That team is on its way. You're free to return to action as soon as you see them.|
Field teams have located another runic inscription. It may have been left by the Wrecking Crew. Send a hero to stand watch until we know for certain.
|Agent Coulson:||We've found another runic inscription. Might be part of what the Executioner and the Wrecking Crew are doing. Let's get a look at it and make sure one way or the other.|
|Agent Coulson:||Looks like that one's a false alarm. Maybe the Vikings explored the Savage Land.|
MiniBoss - Wrecker/Thunderball
|Heimdall:||We have found two of the Wrecking Crew. The Wrecker's crowbar does not escape my notice.|
|Ka-Zar:||Or mine. You can hear it all the way to McMurdo.|
|Agent Coulson:||Beta Ray Bill will be wanting to come along.|
|Heimdall:||He is already here.|
|Beta Ray Bill:||Yes, I am. What are we waiting for?|
|Heimdall:||Wrecker, you choose a strange place to seek criminal gain.|
|Not everything is about money, pal. You know that.||Wrecker:|
|Beta Ray Bill:||We do. Some things are about revenge.|
|Are you like some kind of big Thor fan? Is that why you're here? Because you ought to stay out of the way or you'll get hurt.||Thunderball:|
|You're slipping, Heimdall. Might be time to put you out of your misery.||Wrecker:|
|Beta Ray Bill:||It is too long since I fought the enemies of Asgard. Again!|
|Beta Ray Bill:||Yes, Thunderball. I am a... big fan... of Thor's. He and I have wielded our hammers against mightier foes than you and this rabble.|
|Agent Coulson:||Any sense of what they were doing there?|
|Heimdall:||There are runic inscriptions on the stones... I cannot read them.|
|Enchantress:||I can. They're trying to open a gateway to Muspelheim.|
|Beta Ray Bill:||You see I was correct. Surtur is using the Executioner.|
MiniBoss - Piledriver/Bulldozer
|Volstagg:||Half of the Wrecking Crew are here, hiding among the Iso-Saurs. Who will bring them to justice?|
|Volstagg:||Wait a minute... we will?|
|Agent Coulson:||We're calling your number, Volstagg. Fire support is on it's way, but you're in the lead.|
|Volstagg:||Varlets! Blackguards! The wrath of Asgard looms!|
|What's he talking about?||Piledriver:|
|Hogun:||He's saying you and the Executioner are in some trouble.|
|Oh, is he, now? Come on, big boy. Let's see who's got the extra trouble to dish out.||Bulldozer:|
|We got the end of Asgard's bench there. Jeez, where's Thor?||Piledriver:|
|Volstagg:||Do not rouse my fury, mortals! You face Volstagg now!|
|Enchantress:||Let me see. Yes. This runic charm, combined with another, will open a portal to Muspelheim. We should assume that Surtur will be on the other side.|
With an army of fire giants? We should also assume that, I suppose.
|Enchantress:||That does seem the most likely situation. Perhaps we can still stop it. I have destroyed this charm but there's no way to know whether its magic has already been discharged.|
|Agent Coulson:||Maybe Skurge will have some information about that. He'll tell you, Amora.|
|Enchantress:||Dear Philip, you think too much of Skurge. If he has grown angry at me, his conversation will likely be limited to grunts and roars.|
|Agent Coulson:||Well, let's find him and see.|
Boss - Executioner
|Enchantress:||Here is Skurge.|
|Agent Coulson:||You know what to do, then.|
|Enchantress:||Should someone else face him? If he sees me...|
|Tony Stark:||Amora. Are you seriously getting cold feet about talking to an ex-boyfriend?|
|Maria Hill:||This mission is yours. We need to confirm what we're already suspecting about the Wrecking Crew.|
|Enchantress:||Oh, very well.|
|Enchantress:||Skurge. What is this madness with Surtur?|
|Betrayer! Liar! You are a cat who tortures my heart like a bird with a broken wing!||Executioner:|
|Enchantress:||I never imagined you capable of such poetry, Skurge.|
|I will compose an elegy over your corpse, witch!||Executioner:|
|Enchantress:||Darling, you're not answering my question.|
|Surtur is coming to burn this realm.||Executioner:|
|Enchantress:||I suspected that already. The question is why.|
|Because the Worthy gather, and soon Midgard will be a world of ash and bone. He has scores to settle first.||Executioner:|
|Enchantress:||Skurge. How many ways can I say it? I never loved you. You are angry at losing something you never had.|
|Enchantress:||Skurge sleeps, and will for some time. The area here is burned. Runes carved with fire still smolder.
Whatever enchantment was done here, it is complete.
|Agent Coulson:||I don't see any fire demons.|
|Ka-Zar:||Nor do I. Shanna has broken up the rocks inscribed with the Wrecking Crew's runes. Perhaps we have interrupted the enchantment in time.|
|Enchantress:||Or perhaps we do not yet understand how the enchantment was supposed to work. If Surtur wishes to find a way to this realm, he will.|
|Tony Stark:||Thanks, Debbie Downer.|
|Agent Coulson:||We could use a little help from Asgard. Anyone seen Thor?
Or Odin, even?
|Maria Hill:||They might be fighting a battle somewhere else. But you're right, it would be good to have them around.|
|Agent Coulson:||Did it work?|
|Beta Ray Bill:||I don't know.|
|Tony Stark:||Well, is there a giant fiery demon rampaging around the Savage Land?|
|Beta Ray Bill:||No. But--|
|Tony Stark:||Then I call that a win. Now we can get back to worrying about the Worthy.|
|Enchantress:||I wouldn't be so quick to answer your own questions, Tony.|
|Maria Hill:||What do you have to add, Amora?|
|Enchantress:||Only that Surtur will not be the only presence we encounter from the other realms.
Every power in the Nine Realms will wish to plunder Midgard before the Worthy destroy it... or someone else does.
|Tony Stark:||Someone else? Now's not the time to be a tease, sweetheart. Out with it.|
|Enchantress:||If the leaders of the Realms see Midgard defenseless... there will be no shortage of threats.|
|Tony Stark:||Midgard's not defenseless. Not by a long shot.|
|Enchantress:||Of course not. But you might not be able to expect help from all the usual places.|
Group Boss - Surtur
|Agent Coulson:||Uh oh. We didn't get to the Executioner in time.|
|Loki:||Surtur has found his way into our world. A little bit of Muspelheim in the Savage Land.|
|Enchantress:||If your brother was here...|
|Loki:||He's not. Pining for his mighty biceps won't solve our problem.|
|Enchantress:||Have I ever mentioned the way your bitterness makes you very poor company?|
"Battling Iso-Saurs and Dark Elves in this heat? S.H.I.E.L.D. wishes for a cool reprieve... and gets it."
— Mission Preview
|Tony Stark:||Surtur started a trend. The Savage Land is about to turn into a slaughterhouse. Kurse and Malekith are here.|
|Maria Hill:||We saw them in Wakanda recently looking for a way to tap into the powers of the Worthy. Is that why they're here now?|
|Tony Stark:||No, they're here because this is where the action is. Every ruler of every realm is looking to settle scores with Asgard, and with Thor gone we're on our own.|
|Maria Hill:||When you say every ruler... I don't follow. Surtur's the only new threat we've seen.|
|Tony Stark:||I think we're about to see another. Field teams are reporting Dark Elves and Jotun patrolling together. That speaks to an alliance between Svartalfheim and Jotunheim.
And who's in charge of Jotunheim?
|Loki:||Ymir. A pitiless and deadly warrior. He was an ally of my... of Laufey.|
|Maria Hill:||Ah. So this is getting personal.|
A combined force of Jotun and Dark Elves is attacking a holding facility where we're researching Iso-Saurs. Captain Marvel is closest. Get her there before those Iso-Saurs get loose.
|Maria Hill:||Carol, we're sending you coordinates of a research lab where we've got about fifty Iso-Saurs penned up. It's under attack.
Keep those Iso-Saurs locked up.
|Ms. Marvel:||Roger that. I'm on my way.|
|Ms. Marvel:||The base is safe. Looks like the holding pens weren't breached.|
|Maria Hill:||Good. We've got reinforcements on the way in case they try again.|
If Malekith and Kurse are here, they could still be looking for a fallen hammer of the Worthy. Send a hero out to do a sweep and see if there are any giant Uru hammers lying around.
|Agent Coulson:||We know Kurse is here. We know he was looking for one of the Worthy's hammers. Did one fall here and we missed it? Better find out.|
|Agent Coulson:||No hammer. That's good, I guess... except now we don't know what brings the Dark Elves to the Savage Land.|
Unleashing captive Iso-Saurs looks to be part of Ymir's plan. This time Rogue is our closest field asset to the target base.
|Rogue:||Base, I'm seeing a full-on brawl between our agents and a dozen Jotun. Looks like our guys could use a little help before the Jotun let the Iso-Saurs off their leashes.|
|Agent Coulson:||We're seeing the same thing, Rogue. Agreed on the need for backup.|
|Rogue:||Then here I go.|
|Rogue:||I swept up all the trash down here. Believe I'll get myself back into the fight.|
|Agent Coulson:||Understood, Rogue. Give our best to any other Jotun you might find.|
|Rogue:||Count on it, sugah.|
We found one of the portals the Dark Elves are using. Enchantress can pop over there and shut it down, but she'll need some cover.
|Maria Hill:||Agent, we've located a portal to Svartalfheim, thanks to Heimdall. The Enchantress can shut it down quickly, but she'll need someone to watch over her while she does it.|
|Enchantress:||It will take only a moment, but I won't go until someone is in position to stand guard.|
|Maria Hill:||Good. Done. Now we should keep a careful eye on that spot. Fleeing Dark Elves might try to get there if they think the portal is still open.|
A few of Surtur's demons have struck out on their own. Send a hero to take them out before they get to one of our bases, or an indigenous settlement.
MiniBoss - Malekith
|Valkyrie:||Malekith lurks nearby. I sense him.|
|Agent Coulson:||Sense him as in you can find him and lead us to him?|
|Valkyrie:||Follow me, Agent Coulson. Follow me who will.|
|Agent Coulson:||You heard her, Agent.|
|Valkyrie:||You will not find the Worthy here, elf.|
|I will also not consult with you, maiden. The business of Svartalfheim is Svartalfheim's to conduct.||Malekith:|
|Valkyrie:||You are not in Svartalfheim. This is Midgard, and I am sworn to protect it.|
|As is Thor... but where is he? Are you deserted by the Odinson?||Malekith:|
|Valkyrie:||The business of Asgard is Asgard's to conduct.|
|Clever. Yet your cleverness is revealing. You do not know where the Odinson has gone, do you? You do not know why he has left you.||Malekith:|
|Doom marches on Midgard, wearing the boots of many realms.||Malekith:|
|Stand clear of me, maiden, lest you would escort yourself to Valhalla.||Malekith:|
|Valkyrie:||The Jotun were too many. We have cut them down now, but Malekith escaped.|
|Heimdall:||Now we may be certain that Asgard's enemies are beginning to unite... and their chosen battlefield is Midgard.
Ymir watches. He awaits his audience with Loki.
|Agent Coulson:||Loki? Why Loki?|
|Loki:||Because the Jotun consider me somewhat... disloyal. As does Asgard. It's a problem I often have.|
|Tony Stark:||Gee, I wonder why.|
|Loki:||Like you, Stark, I am often misunderstood. It is the burden of superiority.|
MiniBoss - Kurse
|Shanna:||Kurse just tore apart a research base here. The survivors are calling for help. I'll do what I can, but...|
|Agent Coulson:||Fandral, Volstagg, you're on.|
|Fandral:||Let's go, old friend.|
|Fandral:||Kurse, this massacre of mortals is beneath you. Test yourself against a real warrior.|
|I would, if I saw one.||Kurse:|
|Volstagg:||Ha! It banters, this heap of muscle and bone. Perhaps the blade of my axe will teach it to be humble!|
|The bite of the fly concerns not the spider.||Kurse:|
|Fandral:||Volstagg, you are bested at boasting! Yet the tale of the battle is yet to be told.|
|You gather here for your own slaughter. Fools.||Kurse:|
|Fandral:||The last time went so well, let's do it again, shall we?|
|Volstagg:||Now you know the might of Asgard! Who is the fly?|
|Fandral:||He cannot answer, mighty Volstagg. Save your breath.|
|Volstagg:||Breath I have to spare, and strength as well!|
|Agent Coulson:||I hate to interrupt, but is there a status update available?|
|Fandral:||Kurse lies dreaming. If you have no prison to hold him, I'm sure Asgard could arrange for accommodations.|
|Agent Coulson:||That would be much appreciated.|
Boss - Ymir
|Heimdall:||Ymir surrounds himself with Jotun, and calls for Loki.|
|Tony Stark:||If we got him next to Surtur, would he melt or would Surtur's fire go out? Can we try that?|
|Loki:||As delightful as I find your diversions, Stark, this moment calls for a bit of sobriety and resolve. I will face Ymir.|
|Maria Hill:||You don't have to go alone.|
|Loki:||Oh, I have no intention of going alone. Who shall fight in my company?|
|Loki:||Ymir. I understand you have sought my company. To what do I owe this honor?|
|To the times, Laufeyson. The hammers of the Worthy cast their shadows over this world. Before it dies you must answer for your treachery.||Ymir:|
|Loki:||I could live forever and yet not answer for all my treachery. So I will not try. I have done what I have done. My father understands this. My brother understands this.|
|Your brother? He cannot protect you now.||Ymir:|
|Loki:||Perhaps you should be more concerned with who will protect you.|
|From you? Will you tease me with illusion? I care not. Will you confuse me with lies? I stop my ears. All that matters to me is your blood.
Stand and fight, trickster, and I will teach you a little something about your heritage.
|Loki:||And I will teach you a little something about who I am.|
|You begin to pay the price for your betrayals, Laufeyson... but this is only the beginning.||Ymir:|
|Loki:||I believe I've had enough of being lectured about loyalty.|
|Loki:||I believe Ymir understands me a little better now.|
|Tony Stark:||At least someone does.|
|Loki:||The Jotun flee. Ymir will gather them again, but for now --|
|Heimdall:||There is a third.|
|Tony Stark:||A third what?|
|Heimdall:||A third adversary. Surtur and Ymir have worked their own alliances with yet another realm.|
|Agent Coulson:||Hold that thought just for a moment, Heimdall. Agent, we'll have a briefing back at the Helicarrier as soon as you can get there.|
|Agent Coulson:||Now that we don't have to worry about being overheard: Heimdall, who is this third?|
|Fandral:||Agent Coulson? Volstagg and Hogun and I were clearing out the last of the elves, and--|
|Volstagg:||Get to the point, you blabbering dandy!|
|Hogun:||The dead are rising.|
"The dead and defeated come back to life at the beck and call of a power hungry coalition. How can you stop that which cannot grow weary or feel pain?"
— Mission Preview
|Agent Coulson:||There's an undead army rising, Surtur's still spreading fire, and field reports indicate Ymir and the Jotun are back on the march.|
|Tony Stark:||Fire, ice, and death. That's some trifecta of primal forces arrayed against us.|
|Shanna:||We can handle it.|
|Agent Coulson:||Of course we can.|
|Beta Ray Bill:||I get Surtur.|
Now that we know this is an alliance among multiple realms, we need Heimdall to put his sight to work and see if there are any other parties that we don't know about yet.
|Agent Coulson:||Heimdall, we need a kind of help only you can give.|
|Heimdall:||I stand ready to assist the allies of Asgard.|
|Agent Coulson:||We know we're facing an alliance of Hel, Muspelheim and Jotunheim. What we don't know is who else is involved. Can you take a look at the other realms and see who else might be stirring?|
|Heimdall:||The Ljosalfar and Vanir watch from their realms. They do not assist Asgard, but neither will they aid Asgard's enemies.|
|Agent Coulson:||We figured on that.|
|Heimdall:||Nothing stirs in either Nidavellir or the Realm Below. We face the entirety of our enemy now.|
|Agent Coulson:||Good. At least it's not going to get any worse.|
Surtur has sent a force to destroy Beta Ray Bill's ship Skuttlebutt! Bill is on the hunt for Surtur; help him out and protect his ship.
|Beta Ray Bill:||Anyone who attacks Skuttlebutt is going to get more than he bargained for. She can handle herself.|
|Maria Hill:||Even so, we'll make sure. You've got enough on your plate hunting Surtur.|
|Beta Ray Bill:||You shall see. Skuttlebutt can handle any threat.|
|Beta Ray Bill:||I told you. Skuttlebutt does not fear demons and giants.|
|Maria Hill:||You were right. Still, we thought it was best to be certain.|
There's a force of Hela's undead hiding out in the jungle and we can't find them... how can we penetrate the jungle canopy and pin down their location?
|Agent Coulson:||Part of Hela's army is hiding out in the jungle here. We can't see them through the canopy.|
|Falcon:||I can help. If there's one thing that you can always find in a jungle canopy, it's birds.|
|Agent Coulson:||Terrific idea, Falcon. We'll have a fire team ready to go once you nail down the target location.|
|Falcon:||Sending you the location now. Man, these are some strange birds down here.|
|Agent Coulson:||Everything in the Savage Land is a little strange.|
One of our scout teams crashed their Quinjet and needs extraction before Iso-Saurs make them lunch. The ever-lovin' blue-eyed Thing is the pilot for this job.
|Tony Stark:||Ben, we've got a scout team crashed in a deep ravine. They're surrounded by Iso-Saurs and they need extraction right away.
You're our guy with the kind of piloting skills to get a Quinjet down into that ravine and back out.
|Thing:||Aw, it's nice to be thought of once in a while.|
|Thing:||Swinging back to base with your scouts. They're a little chewed up, but I got all of them.|
|Tony Stark:||Knew we could count on you.|
|Thing:||Yeah, I'm good for something once in a while.|
There was a significant battle here between Hauk'ka and some of Hela's undead. The Hauk'ka are inclined to feast on the fallen. Send a hero to convince them that's a bad idea.
|Agent Coulson:||The Hauk'ka have helped us out by massacring a bunch of Hela's zombie Vikings. But now they want to eat them.
That's probably not a good idea. Someone kindly get there and convince them of that.
|Agent Coulson:||I can only imagine what a group of zombie Hauk'ka would do to our battlefield planning.|
MiniBoss - Destroyer
|Tony Stark:||Can someone tell me how the Destroyer is in the Savage Land? Didn't we have it locked up somewhere?|
|Enchantress:||This is Hela's doing. The Destroyer is rank with the stench of her sorcery.|
|Tony Stark:||You can smell magic?|
|Enchantress:||I can sense it, as I can sense all magic. Hela's is particularly... distasteful.|
|Heimdall:||I will destroy it. Who comes with me?|
|Heimdall:||Destroyer, your fires are putrid with the scent of death.|
|Heimdall:||We two guardians of Asgard must meet outside Asgard's walls. May we both return.|
|Loki:||He's going to need a little help. Any volunteers? Don't look at me. I have a previous engagement.|
|Heimdall:||This is a perversion of your duty, Destroyer. By Hofund's blade, you will be purified.|
|Heimdall:||The Destroyer's fires are banked, but Hela will soon give it power again.|
|Enchantress:||I will bind it. Hold fast, brave Heimdall, while I work the spell.|
|Loki:||Don't bind it too tightly. I've got plans for father's toy.|
MiniBoss - Ymir
|Agent Coulson:||Ymir has the entire staff of this base hostage. He's calling you out again, Loki.|
|Loki:||I'm not sure I can endure another bout of Ymir's Jotun pride. All the endless lecturing...|
|Enchantress:||He will not be expecting me. You owe me a favor, Loki. I will not let you forget it.|
|Loki:||Forget it? I do not forget favors. I ignore them. Kindly appreciate the difference.
But I thank you all the same.
|You are not the apostate.||Ymir:|
|Enchantress:||Apostate? How seriously you take yourself, Ymir.
Loki sends his regards, but he has another engagement.
|Then I will hunt him down when I have done with you.||Ymir:|
|You suffer unnecessarily, Amora. Would Loki do the same for you?||Ymir:|
|Enchantress:||Would it suit you if I changed my appearance to look like Loki?|
|Enchantress:||Loki, Loki, Loki. He certainly does inspire intense feelings.
Ymir has fallen back with his Jotun. All of your precious scientists are safe for the moment. Perhaps someone should do something about Hela now?
|Tony Stark:||Say, that's a good idea. Wish we'd thought of that.|
|Loki:||I am in your debt, Amora.|
|Enchantress:||Why, yes, you are. I will think of a suitable method of repayment.|
Boss - Hela
|Ka-Zar:||Hela's decided to stand and fight. We'd better take this chance. The dead keep coming up out of the ground. We'll be overrun soon.|
|Loki:||I know I have been poor about accepting my obligations in the past, but perhaps this battle should fall to me. After all, Hela is... in a way she is my daughter.|
|Tony Stark:||You just have all kinds of screwed-up family relationships, don't you?|
|Loki:||I will refrain from commenting on the irony of you passing such a judgement.|
|Loki:||Please tell me this isn't another sentimental attempt to force me to acknowledge the ties of ancestry.|
|Of course not. Midgard is soon to be a land of the dead. I wish to be part of that, and exult in the harvest of souls.||Hela:|
|Loki:||Ah, good. That I understand.
I cannot permit it, but at least I can understand it.
|All souls must pass into Hel... father. Even yours.||Hela:|
|Loki:||Niflheim isn't a destination for me, I'm afraid. You'll have to return without me.|
|Loki:||Hela has withdrawn to Niflheim again. Or Hel. All the realms of the dead seem the same to me.|
|Valkyrie:||Even Valhalla? You cannot distinguish the land of fallen warriors?|
|Loki:||Does it matter what stories the dead tell themselves about themselves? No. Dead is dead.|
|Valkyrie:||You are beneath contempt, Loki.|
Epic Boss - Surtur
|Ka-Zar:||We've been chasing Surtur all over the Savage Land...|
|Tony Stark:||Putting out fires, if you'll forgive the expression.
Now that he's got Hela in the game, he's decided to stand and fight. With a hand-picked force of demons, of course.
|Agent Coulson:||Of course.|
|Beta Ray Bill:||I don't care about demons. I care only for Surtur. Let him face Stormbreaker's justice.|
|Tony Stark:||Ooh, rematch.|
|The Odinson fears to face me himself, I see.||Surtur:|
|Beta Ray Bill:||This is not his fight. It is mine. You and I still have a score to settle.|
|How will you ever settle the score of a galaxy scoured by fire?||Surtur:|
|Beta Ray Bill:||I do not know... but I intend to begin now.|
|Your world burned, Korbinite. Now Midgard too will burn, and you with it.||Surtur:|
|You dress like a god, but even Odin cannot give you the strength to destroy me.||Surtur:|
|Tony Stark:||Good thing the Savage Land is all jungly. Hard for fire to spread when everything is so wet.|
|Shanna:||That's a very practical attitude considering we're fighting magical giants from another dimension.|
|Tony Stark:||Practicality is a Stark specialty. Everyone knows that.|
|Maria Hill:||Bill, is there any sign of Surtur?|
|Beta Ray Bill:||He jumped into a volcano. Perhaps he can swim down through the lava back to Muspelheim.|
|Tony Stark:||What a bizarre... never mind. He's not here. That's the important thing.|
|Beta Ray Bill:||It will not bring Korbin back.|
|Shanna:||Nothing will. All you can do is avenge what you couldn't save.|
|Tony Stark:||That, and maybe along the way you can help us save Earth.|
|Agent Coulson:||Sound off, everyone. Who did we lose?|
|Fandral:||No one. Save Thor himself, but he was lost before we began.|
|Tony Stark:||Excellent. We'll have to conduct sweeps to be sure, but it looks like the combined armies of Muspelheim, Jotunheim, and Hel weren't quite enough to handle Asgard's finest.|
|Fandral:||With an assist from Korbin's finest. Beta Ray Bill, once again you have proven yourself worthy of Odin's regard.|
|Beta Ray Bill:||I am not done yet.|
|Heimdall:||We have beaten back this threat, but others will come. The powers of the Nine Realms know that Midgard trembles on the brink of annihilation.|
|Tony Stark:||From the Worthy? We'll get a handle on that.|
|Heimdall:||Not just the Worthy, no. But what the other peril is... that I cannot yet see.|
