Is Jormig…Jormug…Jormung… Oh Heck, is “Godzilla” there Thor’s fated opponent? That’s one big lizard…er serpent!
It’s Lokizilla! Yep, I’d say he’s gotten a tad miffed. Seems to have a few issues to work out.
Jormy! I love him, yay! So star struck!
Thor’s gonna have one hell of a fish story . . . .
holy cow that’s a big monster *eek*
I am having a hard time following who is on what side or why any of them are doing what they are doing. A cast list/what the heck is going on tab for this future storyline would be really helpful.
Most of us are in the same boat as you are Robert.
We will probably eventually find all the answers. Although there are at least two definite sides, Hod and his cronies, and Odineye and the rest of the brats (who are now adults).
Hod’s team: miffed love goddesses, certain Celtic deities, his Chinese cronies, Pooka, and Loki’s offspring (minus Hel)
Norse force: the Brats, double elf chicks, and Odineye.
that looks so unfair.
@Robert – All will be revealed in time. Especially when they finally confront the villain. I thought about doing a (very wordy) “what’s going on” episode but decided to keep with my original strategy of letting the pieces of the puzzle slowly trickle out to the reader (otherwise, I risk possibly spoiling the ending).
Things to note so far:
Hod has destroyed everyone in Hel’s realm and is attempting to kill off all the Valkyries. In some folk tales and legends, one of Val-halla’s “heavenly” qualities for warriors is that they can fight and kill each other off (as the Einherjar prepare for Ragnarok) and the Valkyries will raise them again each morning.
Hod’s forces in Hel’s realm are constructing something and they have big plans for Balder.
As we just found out, Arazel was ripped through time to give them the magical power they need to get through the shielding around Hod’s citadel (which they’ve apparently tried and failed before).
Signs of Ragnarok: Loki breaking free of his chains and leading the giants into battle against the gods. He was chained up after “tricking” Hod into killing Balder, which he was apparently framed for in our storyline. Another sign of the start of Ragnarok is Fenrir breaking free of his bonds. Also, there is Jormungandr rising from the depths and poisoning the sky. Note that earlier, Hod had his staff keeping a close eye on Loki and Fenrir, so his plan obviously has something to do with Ragnarok.
my insight so far:
Pookah is the main villain here. He made hod (and almost all of Asgard) evil, and Thor, etc. are the only ones left… for some reason?
Construction work in Helheim? Wasn’t there something like a big ship made from dead mans’ fingernails/toenails in the mythology? Of course, this being the future, it will probably turn out to be a very stinky death star
@Wynni: I don’t see Fenrir here… must still be busy with his concerts…
@Theala: There is a grand fish story about Thor going fishing with a giant named Hymir, and Jormungandr would in fact be the one that got away…
