Having defeated Harokin and secured the Warlock’s Eye, Thor and his compatriots free the people of Muspelheim. Soon they hear the Drumbeat of Mourning. This percussion means that the death of a mighty warrior is at hand, for the drumbeat will draw the Black Stallion of Doom.
Soon the dark horse arrives. It is drawn to Harokin, graceful in defeat and near death. It stops outside of Harokin’s room, as Thor reflects upon the respect he has gained for the man he has mortally wounded.
First Appearance: The Drumbeat of Mourning, The Black Stallion of Doom
