Biography

Early Life

Odin was born on Asgard to Bor Burison and his unnamed wife, and also had many siblings who died during the many wars the Asgardians faced. When Bor died in the battle, Odin became Asgard's new king, giving him the position of peacekeeper of all of the Nine Realms from dangerous threats. During his early years, he learned of Ragnarök, an event that would destroy Asgard by the hand of the fire demon Surtur. The king would defeat the demon and banish him to Muspelheim, and obtained the eternal flame from Surtur to prevent him from gaining his power source. He would at some point fall in love with an unnamed woman and have a daughter with her named Hela, whom Odin made his commander of his army to conqueror the Nine Realms.

However, Odin saw Hela's ambition going too far when she wanted to subjugate the universe, and was forced to fight his daughter when she refused to stop. Though Odin defeated her, he decided not to kill her since she was tied to the Ragnarök prophecy. He then banished her to Hel and had his life force be tied to her imprisonment, preventing her from escaping until the day he passed. Despite this, Hela attempted to escape, but was thwarted by Odin after the Valkyries were killed (excluding Brunnhilde, who decided to leave her affiliation). Afterward, Odin wiped out Hela's history from Asgard, and established fake history by having Asgard's rise coming from peace treaties. Wanting to become a benevolent and peaceful ruler, Odin decided to marry Frigga due to feeling the weight of the crown, and the two had a son named Thor.

When the Frost Giants led by Laufey decided to take Midgard, Odin and the Asgardians decided to defend Earth from the threat. During the course of the war, Odin would be assisted by Gilgamesh, who was an Eternal, a immortal synthetic being created by the Celestial Arishem the Judge. The Asgardians stopped the Frost Giants' attempted conquest, with Odin losing his eye in one battle, but managing to defeat Laufey in combat. Inside the Frost Giants' temple, Odin obtained the Casket of Ancient Winters to prevent their race from attacking other realms, and find Laufey's son Loki left to die. Odin and Frigga then adopted Loki into their family, changing his appearance and his lineage for centuries. When both of his sons grew older, Odin became more attached to Thor and granted him the hammer Mjølnir, causing Loki to feel like he was in Thor's shadow. Despite this, Loki was close to Frigga, who taught him magic so he could protect the realms in adulthood.

At one point in time, the Asgardians came down to Earth and encountered the people of Norway, teaching them their cultures and virtues. As a result, Odin and the others were worshipped and became mythical characters, with the king becoming well known in literature as the Norse God of wisdom and war. Additionally, Odin gave his worshippers the Tesseract, which was actually one of the Infinity Stones that could control and manipulate space itself.

Thor

When Thor was ready to succeed his father, Odin prepared the ceremony before it was interrupted by the arrival of Frost Giants. Odin decided not to make his son king yet due to his outburst, but Thor would go on to travel to Jotunheim and start a war with the Frost Giants. Angered for his son's arrogance, Odin decided to strip Thor of his powers, exile him to Midgard, and send Mjølnir there as well to find obtained by someone who was worthy. During this time, Odin was forced to reveal Loki's lineage when Loki learned that touching the casket turned his skin, and the king fell into Odinsleep to his grief of exiling Thor. Seizing the opportunity, Loki traveled to Earth and falsely informed Thor that Odin had passed away from grief, and took the throne to continue his schemes. Odin later awakened from his sleep to save his sons from falling off the destroyed rainbow bridge, but would witness Loki let go and fall to his presumed death. Afterward, Odin spoke with Thor, telling his son that he would make a fine king one day.

The Avengers

When Frigga learned that Loki survived his fall into the abyss and planned to conquer Earth, Odin sent Thor to Earth to retrieve the trickster before he cause trouble. Thor succeeded in capturing Loki with the assistance of the Avengers, a group that consisted of Captain America, Iron Man, Hulk, and Black Widow, Hawkeye. Once Thor returned to Asgard with Loki, Odin had his adopted son sentenced to life in prison.

Thor: The Dark World

When Odin's own wife Frigga was killed at the hands of the Dark Elves' leader Malekith, Odin vowed revenge on them, no matter the cost, putting him at odds with his son. After faking his death, Loki cast a spell on Odin, banishing him to New York City while masquerading as Odin and ruling Asgard himself. Odin later recovered from the spell, but decide to remain in exile, deciding to travel across the world before deciding to remain in Norway.

Thor: Ragnarok

After having an emotional farewell with his sons, Odin finally went to Valhalla. However, his soul would remain with Thor to import wisdom and to help him on his future journeys, and helped him channel his true powers to defeat Hela. Despite the destruction of Asgard, Thor kept Odin's dream alive, and saved the Asgardians, and decided Earth was going to be their new home, but only half of the Asgardians would make it to Midgard to the actions of Thanos.
