* Volstagg, as a representative of the Council of Worlds, goes to visit a light elf refugee camp. He befriends a small group of light elf children, even giving them the massive amount of food he'd brought for himself. The encounter swiftly turns tragic, as an attack on the camp separates Volstagg and the children from the others. He desperately tries to keep the children safe, only for them to die a fiery, painful death in his arms. Volstagg flies into a rage and annihilates the attackers, but he is left firmly planted on the far side of the DespairEventHorizon. He starves himself, broken and unresponsive, friends and family unable to bring him out of this state [[spoiler: until the hammer of Ultimate Thor calls to him. And so the War Thor is born, a god of thunder powered by rage and vengeance. A god who used to be one of the friendliest, most jovial gods of all.]]

--> '''Executioner:''' All laugh at Skurge save you, Balder. And every time they do, I die a little inside. I think... maybe I am dead already. So it does not matter if I stand here and die. I ask you, give me this one last laugh.
* And so Skurge makes an epically badass LastStand against Hela's hordes, killing them by the hundreds until finally, as we are told:
--> They sing no songs in Hel, for grim and cheerless is that realm... but when the new ones ask about the one to whom even Hela bows her head, the answer is always the same: "[[YouShallNotPass He stood alone at Gjallerbru]]..." and that answer is enough.

--> '''Executioner:''' All They made a fool of me, Balder. They laughed at me. Everybody laughs at Skurge. Hela, Mordonna, even the Enchantress I love, they all laugh at Skurge save you, Balder. And every time me. Except you. Balder is too kind to laugh at Skurge. But whenever they do, laugh, I hurt inside. Maybe I die a little inside. little. Now I think... maybe think I am dead already. So it does not matter if I stand here already, and die. my axe was destroyed with Naglfar. So I ask you, give me this one will stay behind and the last laugh.
laugh will be mine.

--> They sing no songs in Hel, nor do they celebrate heroes, for grim and cheerless silent is that realm... but dismal realm and cheerless. But the story of the Gjallerbru and the god who defended it is whispered across the nine worlds. And when the a new ones ask arrival asks about the one to whom even Hela bows her head, the answer is always the same: "[[YouShallNotPass [[YouShallNotPass He stood alone at Gjallerbru]]..." Gjallerbru]]... and that answer is enough.

* In ''ComicBook/TheMightyThor'' #4 (Matt Fraction's run), Odin and Galactus and their respective forces are fighting over who will gain control of the Life Seed. Instead of fighting head-on, Odin and Galactus engage in a psychic battle where they show each other their worst memories. Towards the end of the issue, we see Galan, a younger Galactus, investigating the impending doom of his universe. The kicker comes when it is revealed to the reader and to Galan that his wife/lover is pregnant. For a brief panel, the reader sees Galan overjoyed at the prospect of being a father, only to have his universe, his lover, and his unborn child die a few seconds later. This one memory overwhelms the mighty Galactus. I'm not one for recons, but this one was rather touching, if only for the reason that it showed that Galactus, The Devourer of Worlds, was once a normal person who had everything taken away from in a brief instance; it really hits home when you realize that he has to kill trillions every year just to keep the current universe from being completely being destroyed.

* Again with the Simonson run, at one point Thor gathers the warriors of Asgard for a raid into [[{{Hell}} Hela's realm]] to reclaim falsely-taken mortal souls. This mission includes [[WorthyOpponent his old enemy]], [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Skurge the Executioner]]. In the successful raid Thor is mutilated and the Executioner, who used to be [[GoldfishPoopGang an honorable and worthy opponent but has since become a joke]] discovers to his horror that on Ragnarok he will lead the evil dead of Hel to destroy Asgard. He destroys the almost-complete Naglfar, the warship of the dead, by throwing his dimension-warping axe at it, rendering all the work invested on it worthless and delaying Ragnarok until it can be rebuilt. Hela, in a fury, sends all the hosts of Hel after them. Thor is willing to stay behind and sacrifice himself to defeat them. But then the Executioner knocks him out and explains to Balder the Brave:

* Loki, like everyone else, cannot remember Thor following his death in battle against the Serpent. However, unlike everyone else, he knows Tanarus is not the god of thunder, or his brother...and he's upset because he can't remember who ''is''.
--> '''Loki''': You are ''not'' my brother. My brother was--was--
--> '''Tanarus''': Was who... little brother?
--> '''Loki''': ''Kill you.'' I will when I--when I figure all of this out.
** Thankfully an attack from Kelda (accidentally?) jogged his memory.
*** But then in the next issue, it's clearly getting more and more painful for him to hear people call Tanarus his brother. By the end of the issue, he gets [[spoiler: the Silver Surfer]] to remember, and also manages to find Mjölnir.
* Technically this was in ''WesternAnimation/AvengersEarthsMightiestHeroes'' cartoon and not from a Thor comic, but I still think it counts.
--> '''Wasp''': Should we move his hammer? Hulk maybe...
--> '''Hulk''': Can't move it. Can't even lift it.
--> '''Wasp''': Why not?
--> '''Hulk''': Because I'm not Thor...

* A large man materializes in town, and starts to tear the place up. TheMightyThor tries to stop him, but the seemingly mindless berserker is just as strong as he is, and proceeds to kick the crap out out of him. Thor, in desperation to protect the innocent bystanders, powers up and hits him so hard it kills him. Before he has a chance to celebrate, [[spoiler:Balder and Loki run up, too late to inform him that his opponent was Bor, Odin's father and Thor's own grandfather]].
