He then finds out that the golden city of Asgard he once knew is now gone. The invincible Destroyer is sent to Earth for an unknown purpose, which battled Thor and The Avengers member Captain America, Iron Man, Hawkeye and Scarlet Witch. After it has possessed Colonel Case, intoxicated him with its vast power. But The Avengers were quite unsuccessful in stopping him and after a massive fight, Thor seemingly dies at his hands.

Thor was then sent to Hel to Volla and Hela, who are approached by the enigmatic Marnot, who offered him to return his life if he simply agrees to share his body with Jake Olsen, an EMT paramedic who died during their battle with The Destroyer while trying to save the life of a civilian.

Thor agrees to this and starts living as a mortal to honor Jake's noble heroism, learning the ways of Earth as a mere mortal. The revived Thor has returned to Earth and single handedly outmatched the brute force of The Destroyer this time, sending him to a barren and distant planet. Though he could transform into God of Thunder at will, he starts having difficulties maintaining his newly developed dual identities.
