Hulk and the giant wolf Hoarfen. When Thor returned to confront Odin, the two Thors came to blows, but Thor later gave Red his blessing, recognizing his bravery and acknowledging that both Asgard and Midgard needed Thor protecting them. Though Red’s feelings for Sif remained, he accepted she would never love him, and they became friends.
To fool Ragnarok and prevent the Egyptian death god Seth from destroying them, Odin exiled the Asgardian gods to Earth in mortal form, unaware of their true identities. Red retained his memories, but lost his powers; however, when Thor regained his powers, so did Red. They reunited to find the missing Asgardians, but before they could, Thor seemingly died battling Onslaught. Red tracked down three lost gods before Seth’s minions killed him. This time Red went to Seth’s domain, falling under his power. When the Lost Gods traveled there, Red captured them, but they escaped and returned to Earth. Seth meanwhile learned how to restore the Asgardians’ identities, and that if he destroyed the world tree Yggdrasil afterwards, all the Asgardians would die. Seth send Red to carry out the first part, but when Red restored the Asgardians, he also resurrected himself, breaking Seth’s hold. He hastily returned to Asgard and helped stop Seth. Seconds after Odin vanquished Seth, the extraterrestrial Dark Gods launched a sneak attack, capturing the Asgardians. Presumably freed when Thor later defeated the Dark Gods, Red’s fate in light of the recent, final Ragnarok is unknown.
