The Mighty Thor #3 Synopsis by Peter Silvestro

Thor (Jane Foster) and Loki meet on the battlefield in Alfheim where Malekith's forces are laying waste the peaceful realm. Loki tries to convince Thor that he can be trusted to help her end the war, or as he puts it “An all-new, all-different Thor deserves an all-new, all-different Loki." Thor, who has had many first-hand experiences of Loki as Jane Foster, responds to his wily words by literally knocking his head off. That turned out to be a decoy sent by a cautious Loki (with good reason, as we saw). The God of Mischief reappears and Thor calls down a lightning strike, setting him on fire. Loki reappears again, this time summoning all of his varied incarnations—so Thor sends her hammer Mjolnir flashing among them taking them down. The female Loki steps forward, claiming the right to kill the Goddess of Thunder and a real battle is on. As the two tangle, the various Lokis express their disappointment in the current one, accusing him of deluding himself and covering up his weakness and fear. Lady Loki pierces Thor's shoulder with her sword so Thor ends it by sending Mjolnir to clobber the one real Loki among them: the current one. Pinned to the ground by the hammer, he confesses that he was sent by Malekith to kill her but was stalling so that they could die together. At this Thor sees the villainous Necro-troops riding giant bats—and dropping Roxxon-made bombs. The Goddess of Thunder calls up a massive storm to carry the bombs back into the sky where they explode—then we see Jane Foster plummeting to Earth....

Epilogue: The Lady Freyja is brought before Odin to be tried for her crimes....
