Plot synopsis

After battling the Absorbing Man and successfully defeating him, Thor travels to Asgard where he discovers the Warriors Three are on trial. They accidentally killed a giant who had shape-shifted into an aquatic beast and as punishment they were sentenced to retrieve several difficult items from various pantheons and return them to the father of the dead giant. These include magic apples from the branches of the Asgardian world tree, Yggdrasil, guarded by a giant eagle. The skin of Dionysus' magic pig from Olympus, guarded by Hercules. The spear Slaughter from the Celtic Tuatha De Danaan, guarded by Chulain. The sword Grasscutter from the Japanese land of the dead guarded by Mikaboshi. And finally they must shout their victory from a hill on top of the Egyptian temple of Toth guarded by his three sons.Thor volunteers to go with them, but is forced to not use Mjolnir as a weapon.[7] As they get the items they meet many people including Hercules.[5][8]
