“FEED THE TROLLS”
The Nine Realms - worlds of infinite majesty and mystery, cosmically bound by Yggdrasil the World Tree and watched over by the gods of Asgard. The king of these gods, the All-Father Odin, strives to maintain peace yet is unflinching in his administration of justice and retribution. The Rock Trolls of Rike Nedenfor, or “the Realm Below,” recently attempted an uprising. They stormed the Realm Eternal but were turned back, at great cost, by the brave warriors of Asgard and their prince, the mighty Thor! To make sure they were no longer a threat, Odin dissolved the Trolls’ clans and banished them to internment camps scattered across the green world of Vanaheim. Beaten, the brutish race has languished in despair. Yet one of their kind refuses to yield. Somehow, this Troll has obtained what resembles brass knuckles made of enchanted uru, and his fists have broken the barriers holding back Trollkind. Several camps have already been liberated. If he can rally his people, this Ulik could be a significant threat... and that is why Odin sends his son Thor on a quest to stop him!

“LOST AND FOUND”
The quest has begun. Thor, god of thunder and prince of Asgard, has been tasked by his All-Father Odin with bringing the outlaw troll Ulik to justice. Ulik, somehow evading detection, has been liberating his warlike but defeated people from internment camps and wreaking unholy havoc across Vanaheim. Even with assistance from the unparalleled warrior Sif and his half-brother Balder, Thor struggles in pursuit of his elusive enemy. But is Ulik really the vile fiend Thor believes him to be? Or are greater forces at play, manipulating a much larger conflict?
Meanwhile, the trickster Loki seeks to prove his worthiness by finding Ulik before his incompetent brothers can. Delving into the Asgardian Palace’s secret maps and charts of Vanaheim, he discovers an isolated area called “Leyndarmál” that was heretofore unknown to him. The confidential records reflect Leyndarmál was magically sequestered by Odin himself at the request of Thor. Apparently the place was intended to be a therapeutic “safe space” for “a friend from work.” Unfortunately for this friend, no space is safe from the god of mischief...

“OF ORDER AND CHAOS” part one “DUALITY”
Not long ago, the Mighty Thor journeyed to Midgard to battle its greatest monster - the Incredible Hulk. But this was a Hulk unlike any previously witnessed. An encounter with the cosmic entity of duality known as the In-Betweener left the man and monster deeply polarized, driving Bruce Banner inexorably towards “order” whilst sending the Hulk spiraling into greater “chaos.” Not even Thor could defeat him, and only through great effort was Banner finally able to reassert himself. Fearful of ever unleashing the chaotic Hulk again, Banner begged Thor for help - and Thor, seeing a hero afflicted with a curse most foul, petitioned his father Odin to secretly sequester an isolated region of one of the Nine Realms where puny Banner could be left alone in peaceful solitude. And so he was. Until Loki found him on Vanaheim... and made him angry! Now the realm must contend with an uncontrollable and indiscriminate rage the likes of which it has never seen! Will Banner ever be able to forgive himself for the countless acts of violence the Hulk is about to commit?
Meanwhile, the God of Thunder’s quest to recapture the rebel Rock Trolls has culminated in a duel with their new leader. Thor fights for the honor and security of Asgard. Ulik fights for the freedom of his people. As Balder, Sif, and the other trolls look on, the titanic contest may be cut short when it appears the only way to stop the chaotic Hulk is for the two uru-wielding enemies to join forces! And all the while, the In-Betweener continues to effectuate universal balance... 32 PGs./Rated T+ …$3.99

“OF ORDER AND CHAOS” part two “THE NIDAVELLIR JOB”
Unlikely allies Thor and Ulik the Troll continue to struggle against the rampaging Chaotic Hulk as he lays waste to Vanaheim. But even these two powerhouses can only slow down the monstrous side of Bruce Banner after he was cursed by the In-Betweener. Someone needs to formulate a plan and soon...
Enter Loki! To defeat the monster, the God of Mischief draws inspiration from the one object that has ceaselessly vexed him: Mjölnir, Thor’s enchanted hammer. Vast power can be transferred into the uru metal from which it is forged - potentially even the chaotic power currently afflicting the Hulk. So, where can Loki obtain fresh uru? A preternatural eavesdropper, he happens to know that his adoptive All-Mother Frigga recently commissioned the dwarves of Nidavellir to forge an uru mace for her beloved natural-born son Balder. Loki could requisition it through official channels, but that wouldn’t allow him to be the dramatic hero. Surely no one would mind if he simply “borrowed” the weapon and enchanted it into “Gammölnir the Hulk Hammer” in order to forestall an emergency within the Nine Realms... All he has to do is get by thousands of dwarven warriors and steal it from one of the most high-security armories in the universe! Easy enough, except for the fact that the most notorious assassins in Svartalfheim, the dark elven Daughters of Døkkr - Illska and Sārga - are planning a similar heist at the same exact time!

“DIVINE JUSTICE”
The Hulk has been subdued and the In-Betweener’s curse dispelled... but the destruction he wrought remains. Bruce Banner must now stand before the All-Father in judgement. The Vanir, led by Queen Frigga, demand a swift execution as Vanaheim bore the brunt of the Chaotic Hulk’s rampage. Yet Odin, questioning Hulk’s culpability, sees a spark of worthiness in the monster from Midgard. Perhaps a test is in order? To gain ultimate wisdom, the King of Asgard famously once made a sacrifice of himself to himself. He hung from the great cosmic world tree Yggdrasil for nine days, stabbed and bleeding, as he peered into the waters of the fathomless Well of Urd below until secrets and truths untold were finally revealed to him. If the Hulk can survive such an ordeal, Odin will pardon his crimes. If he cannot, then Asgardian justice will be served!
Meanwhile, for his part in defeating the Hulk, the troll Ulik has been granted an island on Vanaheim for his people to build a new homeland. Having earned the respect of his rival the mighty Thor in battle, the two now face a new challenge - how much mead can they drink?!
But not everyone is feeling celebratory, especially not the native Vanir... nor Loki, who feels cheated of credit for the victory and believes the green brute who pummeled him deserves naught but a painful end. Fortunately for the god of mischief, he knows someone on Midgard who would agree. The Hulk humiliated this man in battle, slew his people, destroyed his armaments, and even deflowered his daughter! So wouldn’t it be interesting if General Thaddeus “Thunderbolt” Ross found out that his mortal enemy could presently be found in Asgard?

“CONGRESS WITH SERPENTS”
The Congress of Worlds: an assembly of representatives joined to resolve issues of and between the Nine Realms. Today a representative from Midgard speaks. Thaddeus “Thunderbolt” Ross, an esteemed military leader from the realm’s most powerful nation, the United States of America, demands that Asgard extradite a criminal most foul. Bruce Banner, a.k.a. the Hulk, wrought untold destruction on Midgard and now Midgard seeks justice and retribution. Odin, however, knows the Hulk’s actions were due to the curse of the In-Betweener. The All-Father absolved the Hulk of crimes related to a similar rampage on Vanaheim and would deny Ross’ request - but what say the speakers of the other realms? To ignore their voice again may be folly, as Odin’s ever-spying ravens have already whispered to him regarding rumors of discontent with his rule...
Meanwhile, the Sons of Odin arrive in Alfheim. Thor, Loki, and Balder have been sent at the request of the Queen of the Light Elves to investigate stirrings of the Jormungandi, a snake-like race descended from the enormous Midgard Serpent once prophesied to kill Thor during Ragnarök. The God of Thunder, never one to passively accept fate, ensured that prophecy would never come to fruition by slaying the monstrous wyrm centuries ago. The beast’s spawn, however, escaped to the woodlands of Alfheim where they’ve naught been much trouble - until now. It seems they have an aggressive new cold-blooded leader who aims to see the old prophecy fulfilled. And his name... is Fin Fang Foom!
Plus, the revelry after the Rock Trolls were granted a new homeland may have borne unexpected fruit. Lady Sif... is with child!

“THE SCIENCE OF WAR”
To ameliorate discontent within the Nine Realms, Odin has granted Midgard’s request for extradition and surrendered the Hulk to the custody of General Thaddeus “Thunderbolt” Ross. Under the auspices of national security, Ross has his arch-nemesis subjected to (he hopes) painful experimentation in an effort to weaponize Banner’s transformation and create gamma-enhanced soldiers. But Thor, Prince of Asgard, says thee nay! He will not abandon an ally to torture and death. Joined by Sif, who has yet to inform the god of thunder that she is with child, Thor resolves to liberate his friend and end Ross’ perverse experimentation - even if the legions of the United States be hurled against him. Yet unbeknownst to our heroes, they face no mere mortals on this quest. Ross, it seems, insisted that he be the first test subject. And lo, a Red Hulk awaits!
What’s more, Asgardian royalty attacking a military installation on U.S. soil will almost certainly be construed as an act of war! Can Loki cover up the incident? Does he even want to?
Plus, in the cold realm of Niffleheim there is naught but primordial darkness and ice. There is no life. For that realm is home to the undead Draugr - the “again-walkers” - and upon Niffleheim’s frozen throne sits its skeletal king: Thrain. There he nurses an old grudge - a hatred for the man that first cursed him to living death. He has a plan for vengeance, but if he truly desires to depose the tyrant “All-Father” then he will require allies. Fortunately for Thrain, the leader of the Dark Elves of Svartalfheim is like-minded. So begins an unholy alliance... with Malekith the Accursed!
