Thor 360 picks up with the return of the Asgardian warriors back to their home realm. He immediately sets them up to go to war again, this time in the land of the dead to rescue some mortal souls. But before they can depart he, Sif, and Heimdall have a discussion of domestic abuse.
Thor doesn’t really have a good entrance to Hel, so he instead turns to the goddess Angerboda.
Angerboda quickly gets argumentative with Thor about giving him information before turning in to the rock and roll icon seen on the cover. She nearly overcomes Thor, but he uses his hammer to shatter the runes that summon her and send her back to Hel.
Even as that fight occurs the Enchantress (apparently on the side of the angels) has a confrontation with Skurge the Executioner (a former villain that also helped out the Asgardians in their fight with the dark elves).
Balder eventually answers Thor’s summons of him earlier in this issue (and has the adventures described in the Balder the Brave limited series) with a warning for Thor not to enter Hel. He recounts the tale of his own harrowing escape from the pit.
When all is done, not even Balder’s tale can stop Thor from his quest. Alongside Skurge and a small army, he races off to find his path to Hel.
