Meanwhile, a few light years away, the
army of Asgardia proves more than a match for the Shi'ar warships.

Flashback, a few days ago: a mysterious
stranger informs Sharra and K'ythri that as gods they are

Challenge of the Gods. The visitor is Loki and he is there on behalf
of Malekith—but it's no fun for him anymore....

City and heads off to mourn. The army of Asgardia arrives as Thor is
beating up the Shi'ar gods. And far away, on a nameless world,
something arises from a pool of lava....
