Synopsis for "Tales of Asgard: Home of the Norse Gods"Edit

The first part in a series telling some of the ancient legends of Asgard, this premiere story explains the early origins of the home of the Gods and the birthplace of the mighty Thor.

It explains that the origins of these legends have their root from the Ancient Norsemen who crafted these tales. We are introduced to the Aesir (good gods) and their opponents the evil Frost Giants, and how they would wage battle in a realm bound by fire in the south and mist in the north.

At this world's end, the legends state the demon of fire, Surtur sits planning the destruction of the Gods, while deep below them all is the Well of Life. Aeons ago, the realm of Asgard was a world of pure ice until the birth of Ymir the greatest of the Frost Giants, followed by a magical cow. Soon the first of the Asgardians would be born, Buri.

As time would go on, Buri would take a wife and have a son named Borr. Borr would also have children of his own, one of them growing to be the soon mighty Odin. It would be Odin who would eventually vanquish Ymir. Following the ice giants defeat, Odin and his brothers would plant Yggdrasill, the Life Tree and protect the Earth, preparing it for the coming of man.

Synopsis for "Tales of Asgard: Odin Battles Ymir, King of the Ice Giants"Edit

War has erupted between the Asgardians and the Ice Giants. Odin joins the battle in his flying chariot. His Meteor Bolts began to drive back the Giants, until a unison of Ice Giants produces a frozen wind that down the chariot.

Grounded, Odin strike the earth with his sword and causes a great chasm which devours all but the mightiest of the giant, their king Ymir. He attacks Odin, and the Asgardian god appears to flee. But he actually is luring to Ymir to a specific spot. Then one blow from Odin's sword causes a circle of volcanic flame to imprison the Ice Giant in an eternal trap.

Then Odin returns to his throne in Asgard.

Synopsis for "Tales of Asgard: Surtur the Fire Demon"Edit

Hearing that the trolls have joined the evil Surtur, Odin invades their land. When the trolls attempt to ambush Odin, he thrusts his sword into the earth, releasing power that drives the trolls away.

Odin faces Surtur himself, as the demon transforms himself in a sinister multi-headed serpent. But Odin with his power draws meteors down unto Surtur.

Realizing he can not defeat Odin directly, Surtur attacks the earth. Boring deep into the earth, he releases a huge chunk of matter into the sky which becomes earth's moon.

Using his powers, Odin constructs the Rainbow bridge which connects Asgard to earth. Upon reaching earth, Odin uses his power to set the earth spinning, trapping Surtur deep within the planet. From there the fire demon produces heat and energy for the earth. Open to earn freedom, Surtur presents Odin with the gift of a flying horse, in the hope that one day Odin will release him.

Synopsis for "Tales of Asgard: Heimdall the Guardian of the Rainbow Bridge!"Edit

Quote1 Too long has the Rainbow Bridge remained unguarded! Too many times have our enemies attacked Asgard by crosing its shimmering brilliance! The bridge needs a sentry! And that is why I have decided to appoint a guardian of the Rainbow Bridge! I have selected three warriors--and now I shall choose one of you! Quote2
--Odin

This is the story of how Heimdall came to be the guardian of Bifrost the rainbow bridge. Odin holds a sort of try-out, summoning Heimdall and two other worthy candidates. Agnar the fierce, is the first, and offers him self as having the mightiest chest, the strongest lungs, and that none but he have the power to sound the horn warning, Gjallahorn, as he demonstrates this ability, the "roar reaches to infinity". The second is Gotron the Agile, who claims that his deeds speak for themselves, and that he was nimble enough to defeat seven frost giants at once, when they attacked Asgard "only last year".

The last is Heimdall The Faithful, who shows that he has other useful abilities other than strength "that is a match for any". He proves this by stepping out into Odin's garden and, by placing his ear on the grass, hears the tinniest plant growing in the heart of a place known as the "Hidden Hills", which was scorched by the fiery breath of a dragon. After Odin had dispatched his gardener to verify the tiny new plant just blossoming into life, Heimdall proved himself further. He said that his eyesight is so keen that he "can see across time as well as space!!" He then informs Odin of a "savage band of Storm Giants" marching towards the rainbow bridge, still two days away. Odin then dispatched a heavily-armed war party to meet Storm Giants. The war party returned in days, with the King of the Storm Giants as prisoner. These demonstrations of abilities and noble character earned him the position of "Guardian of the Rainbow Bridge - - FOREVER!"
