A large assemblage of Avengers, both  former and current, have been caught up in a complicated war of wills between Korvac and a cosmic entity known as “The Collector.” Korvac has killed the Collector, but these Avengers, Thor among their number, remain aboard his spaceship, currently orbiting Earth.

Investigating the environs of their now-deceased foe, the Avengers discover that the Collector owned a time machine, and had been using it to snatch Thor out of the time-stream so that he could assist the Avengers, despite his being preoccupied with Asgardian matters. The reasons for this were complicated and opaque, but after each adventure, Thor would be returned to his own point in the time stream with his memory removed.

Thor Annual 6

Thor is in Manhattan when he stumbles upon a group of terrorists preparing to blow up a nuclear reactor in the name of some unspecified cause. Thor stops the villains, but suddenly he and the nuclear reactor are both teleported away.

What happens to the reactor is unclear, but Thor wakes up floating in space. Without any magical conveyance, Thor is frozen by the cold void of space, although it does not kill him.

In the 31st Century, the Guardians of the Galaxy are a ragtag spaceship crew, fighting for the betterment of Earth. They consist of Yondu, Charlie 27, Martinex, Niki, Starhawk, and Vance Astro. They stumble upon Thor floating in space and rescue him.

Once onboard, Thor agrees to help the Guardians in their fight against a villain named Korvac. Korvac has a plan that involves blowing up Earth’s sun. Thor and the Guardians fight Korvac and his allies. They manage to destroy Korvac’s base, and in defeat, Korvac teleports away. Astro uses a time machine that Korvac apparently owned to send Thor back to the 20th century.
