This issue opens with a flashback to an altercation between S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Roz Solomon and Roxxon security officers that occurred weeks before Thor’s battle with the Destroyer on Roxxon Island. During the skirmish, Roz gets a call from Phil Coulson, who informs her that Thor Odinson has lost his hammer, prompting her to journey to the moon and seek out her “not boyfriend.” When she arrives, Thor is nowhere to be found, but she does find Mjolnir, which she looks at intently as she wishes for “something big” to use against Roxxon.
Fast forward to today, where Thor (the female version, not the Odinson), is battling the Destroyer, which is being controlled by Cul, the brother of Odin and the god of fear. At one point in the battle, Thor loses Mjolnir and Destroyer picks up the hammer to use against her. Odin directs Cul to bring the hammer and Thor back to Asgard, but not before teaching her a lesson.
Meanwhile, Odinson meets with his mother on Midgard to discuss raising an army to right Odin’s wrongs. On Roxxon Island, Roxxon CEO Dario Agger and Malekith work to finalize their deal that will grant Malekith the skull of Laufey, which is currently in Roxxon’s possession.
When we return to Thor’s battle with Destroyer, we see that the Destroyer’s grip on Mjolnir is loosening. Eventually, the hammer returns to Thor, but before the battle with Destroyer concludes, she is joined by a group of allies led by Odinson and Frigga.
