By Nathan Smith Each week we highlight a classic storyline told in full inside Marvel Digital Comics Unlimited, the greatest collection of Marvel comics available online! This week, in honor of Thor and Beta Ray Bill getting set to re-team next month in SECRET INVASION: THOR, we take a look at the earth-shattering storyline, the Surtur Saga!
Things are about to get hot in Asgard!
When the world was young, Odin and his brothers—Ve and Vili—stole the Eternal Flame and hid it in Asgard so that they might prevent the Lord of Flames, Surtur, from ever releasing his might upon the world and destroying all life.
Now after countless millennia, Surtur has returned to reclaim the Eternal Flame and this time he brought his demon armada to help! How can the Norse gods hope to defeat a being so powerful, it annihilated Odin's two brothers?
If that isn't enough, to add mischief to mayhem a little bout of primordial winter starts to plague the entire globe! Could this spell the end of sunny days for Midgard?
Find out the answers to the questions and witness a surprise twist ending in this epic 5-part story by the immaculate Walt Simonson. Head over to Marvel Digital Comics Unlimited and read the Surtur Saga today!
