Thor repairs his damaged hammer in a furnace in Pittsburgh and then returns the enchanted Norn Stones to Odin in Asgard. Loki, in servitude to Ularic the Warlock, imprisons his new master. Thor returns to Earth to find Blake's surgery has closed and that Jane Foster is missing. He tries to enlist the aid of the Avengers to find her, but discovers that most of his old allies have left the group. Hawkeye's brash attitude offends Thor and he leaves too. Loki, meanwhile, has used Ularic's enchantments to reach into outer space and bring back Thor's old foe, the Absorbing Man. He's not happy!
