Norse Mythology explores the magical myths and legends of Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Iceland and Viking-Age Greenland and outlines the way the prehistoric tales and beliefs from these regions that have remained embedded in the imagination of the world. The book begins with an Introduction that helps put Scandinavian mythology in place in history, followed by a chapter that explains the meaning of mythic time, and a third section that presents in-depth explanations of each mythological term. These fascinating entries identify particular deities and giants, as well as the places where they dwell and the varied and wily means by which they forge their existence and battle one another. We meet Thor, one of the most powerful gods, who specializes in killing giants using a hammer made for him by dwarfs, not to mention myriad trolls, ogres, humans and strange animals. We learn of the ongoing struggle between the gods, who create the cosmos, and the jötnar, or giants, who aim to destroy it. In the enchanted world where this mythology takes place, we encounter turbulent rivers, majestic mountains, dense forests, storms, fierce winters, eagles, ravens, salmon and snakes in a landscape closely resembling Scandinavia. Beings travel on ships and on horseback; they eat slaughtered meat and drink mead. Spanning from the inception of the universe and the birth of human beings to the universe's destruction and the mythic future, these sparkling tales of creation and destruction, death and rebirth, gods and heroes will entertain readers and offer insight into the relationship between Scandinavian myth, history, and culture.
How do you make someone stronger than the strongest person? It finally came to me: Don't make him human — make him a god. I decided readers were already pretty familiar with the Greek and Roman gods. It might be fun to delve into the old Norse legends... Besides, I pictured Norse gods looking like Vikings of old, with the flowing beards, horned helmets, and battle clubs. ...Journey into Mystery needed a shot in the arm, so I picked Thor ... to headline the book. After writing an outline depicting the story and the characters I had in mind, I asked my brother, Larry, to write the script because I didn't have time. ...and it was only natural for me to assign the penciling to Jack Kirby...
The Lightning Strike
Stormur translates as storm in English, and it’s a suitable analogy for the God of Thunder. Storms are majestic and powerful. They are forces of nature that can’t be predicted or controlled. Sigur Rós are an Icelandic band that sing in their native tongue, so the song has an otherworldly quality to it that sounds beautiful.
God Pounds His Nails
Savin’ Me is a great song for describing the love and hate relationship between Thor and Loki. Thor wants to redeem his brother, while Loki’s nature is to scheme and plot. They’ve worked together as much as they’ve fought each other, but Thor still believes he and Loki will reconcile for good one day.
Into The Nothing
Breaking Benjamin’s grungy songs are like listening to a Nordic ballad unfold. I picture Thor leading Asgard’s warriors into battle when I listen to Into The Nothing. Thor is a selfless man who will put himself before others, and it fits with him wanting to make sure everyone will make it to see the next fight.

Fans got a clue earlier this year when a clip released from the film showed Thor, played by actor Chris Hemsworth, sitting at a table at Avengers HQ with a bowl of biscuits and a can of Athena Berliner Weisse. But the film also contained a shout out to the brewery’s most popular beer, Tropicália IPA, which Thor drinks midway through the film after Rocket uses it as a bribe to get him to leave New Asgard. (Thor also sports a Tropicália shirt in the film—you have to look closely to spot it.)
Berliner Weisse 4.5% ABV.

St Abbs is a small fishing village on the southeastern coast of Scotland, United Kingdom within the Coldingham parish of Berwickshire. The village was originally known as Coldingham Shore, the name St Abbs being adopted in the 1890s. The new name was derived from St Abb's Head, a rocky promontory located to the north of the village, itself named after the 7th century saint Æbbe of Coldingham.
The film Avengers: Endgame features New Asgard, and location filming took place at St Abbs. The lifeboat station was branded New Asgard Lifeboat Station during filming. Scottish Borders Council made up the signs and the lifeboat crew have been posing with them at locations featured in the film.
Thor and his companions traveled across it on horses on their way to Heimdall and to Jotunheim. On Thor's return to Asgard, he and Loki battled at the entrance to Heimdall's Observatory which resulted in Thor shattering the Rainbow Bridge and destroying the energy output of the Bifrost, preventing Asgard from being able to freely travel within the Nine Realms; this resulted in the outbreak of raids throughout those realms.
Asgard is a fictional realm and its capital city appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. Based on the realm of the same name from Norse mythology, Asgard is home to the Asgardians and other beings adapted from Norse mythology. Asgard first appeared in Journey into Mystery #83 (October 1962) by Stan Lee, Larry Lieber and Jack Kirby, and features prominently in stories that follow the Marvel Comics superhero Thor.
In Germanic cosmology, Midgard (an anglicised form of Old Norse Miðgarðr; Old English Middangeard, Old Saxon Middilgard, Old High German Mittilagart, and Gothic Midjun-gards; "middle yard") is the name for Earth (equivalent in meaning to the Greek term "inhabited") inhabited by and known to humans in early Germanic cosmology. The Old Norse form plays a notable role in Norse cosmology.
The Nine Realms are nine individual worlds that, while located in separate spiral galaxies, are systematically connected by the branches of Yggdrasil and orbit Midgard. The inhabitants of the realms are mostly associated with each other rather than the other advanced species residing beyond the realms. Earth, where humanity resides, is one of the Nine Realms, but its inhabitants are considered to be too underdeveloped by the other races to associate with.
