Prologue: The Past
Once, mankind accepted a simple truth: that they were not alone in this Universe. Some worlds, man believed to be home to their gods. Others, they knew to fear.
From a realm of cold and darkness came the Frost Giants, threatening to plunge the mortal world into a new Ice Age.
But humanity would not face this threat alone. The Asgardian armies drove the Frost Giants back into the heart of their own world. The cost was great. In the end, the Frost Giant's king fell and the source of their power was taken from them.
With the last Great War ended, the Asgardian armies withdrew from the other worlds and returned home to the Realm Eternal, Asgard.
There they remain, as a beacon of hope shining out across the stars. And though they have fallen into man's myths and legends, it was Asgard and her warriors that brought peace to the Universe.
But, the day will come when one of Odin's sons will have to defend that peace.
Will they be ready?
