"To End in Flames!"
Loki has stolen the Ring Imperial from the sleeping Odin and consigned him to the eternally dark realm... the realm of Death... to prevent his recovery. Now Surtur bears down on Asgard, and Thor and the assembled warriors of the Golden Realm cannot stop his onslaught. Loki flees to Earth, and Balder sees a course of action. He goes to where Odin is sequestered, even though it means sure death, to reawaken the only force in the Universe that can deal with the Fire Demon Surtur.
