After revealing the death of Odin to the troops, Thor called them to arms once more: several human souls have been trapped in Hel by the machinations of Malekith, and must be freed. They make the dangerous journey to Hel, and narrowly avoid being destroyed by Hela's illusions. Thor challenges Hela to single combat, and manages to defeat her despite having his face terribly scarred by her Hand of Glory. Hela promises to allow Thor, the Asgardians and the human souls to leave unmolested, but is able to trick the Executioner into breaking the truce and attacking her first. When they were about to leave, the Executioner stayed in front of Gjallerbru, the bridge on the border of Hel. stopping Hela's dead soldiers with machine guns (obtained during the last visit of the Asgardians to Earth), allowing the others to escape.

Thor then makes a brief visit to Earth, to release the souls. He was then attacked by Kurse, one of the elves that fought with him in the previous storyline, turned into a nigh-allpowerful being by [[ComicBook/SecretWarsII the Beyonder]]. Thor and Beta Ray Bill were unable to stop him, but during the fight he realized that his true killer had not been Thor, but Malekith; and redirected his hatred to him, completely forgetting about Thor. Thor fooled the Beyonder to send Kurse to Hel, and Hela sent him out of it. And then the fun part...

Beta Ray Bill left for Asgard, with Thor following soon, but then Loki (who was tapping the power of Surtur's sword) enchanted a random woman to go and kiss Thor, which turned him into a frog. Thor ended up in Central Park, and helped the frogs in a war against the rats. He eventually returned to the place where his hammer was still laying, and got an idea: the enchantment that says that "Whoever holds this hammer, if he's worthy, shall possess the power of Thor". Managing to raise it a bit from the ground and touching the ground with the base, he turned from a frog into... an anthropomorphic frog with the costume and power of Thor. He headed to Asgard immediately, and kidnapped Loki during the Assembly that was selecting the new emperor. The sword was finally destroyed during the fight, which allowed Thor to return to normal. Thor proposed then to the Asgardians to select Balder as the new emperor, which was accepted.

Balder was crowned emperor, but the ceremony was interrupted by Kurse, who killed him. The crowned Balder was actually Malekith in disguise. The real Balder was found a short time later.
