Tales of Asgard, Home of the Mighty Norse Gods “The Hordes of Harokin!”
Fabulously Written by… Stan Lee/ Fantastically Drawn by… Jack Kirby/ Fastidiously Inked by… V. Colletta/ Finally Lettered by… Artie Simek
After the revelations of Ragnarok, Loki is dragged away to the Well of Eternal Sleep by guards even as he wails protests of innocence. It seems Odin is punishing his son for his future crimes that have yet to be perpetrated. He is dumped into a hole, where he is suspended in a state of Kirby Crackle.
This whole quest to discover who cracked the Oversword seems to have lost focus. After accomplishing nothing at sea, Odin now charges Thor, Hogun, Volstagg, and Fandral to visit Musphelheim to collect a powerful magic helmet known as the Warlock’s Eye. Odin wishes to keep this artifact out of the hands of the forces of evil in the face of the coming Ragnarok.
However, a warlord named Harokin has already claimed the Warlock’s eye as his own. Its mighty power is enabling him to conquer Muspelheim. With the Eye, he can unleash a deadly beam from his eye-shaped helmet, decimating any forces before him.
First Appearance: Kirby Crackle, Harokin, Muspelheim, The Warlock’s Eye
