Biography

Thor

Volstagg was one of the Asgardians to appear at Thor's coronation. However, it was ruined when a group of Frost Giants attempted to steal the Casket of Ancient Winters. When the Warriors Three and Sif found Thor talking with his brother, Loki, Volstagg was outraged at how the perfectly made food for the feast was on the floor. He was later convinced by Thor to travel to Jotunheim by using the Bifrost summoned by Heimdall, where they entered a battle with the Jotuns. However, Odin rescued them at the last minute. He punished Thor by stripping him of his powers. Loki revealed he had the guard alert Odin to Fandral, the Warriors, and Sif before he left. After Loki refused to lift Thor's banishment, the Warriors and Sif grew more and more desperate to have his friend back.

One evening, Volstagg constantly ate to handle with the stress, causing Fandral to fight with his companion before Sif and Hogun stopped them before it could escalate, where they decided to go to Earth to rescue Thor after Heimdall purposefully left his post. The Warriors Three and Sif used the Bifrost to get to Midgard, where they were reunited with Thor and acquainted with his human friends, Jane Foster, Darcy Lewis and Erik Selvig.

As they convinced Thor his brother was behind the deception so far, when Loki sent the Destroyer to kill Volstagg, the other Warriors Three, Sif, and Thor, they helped evacuate the citizens of the city and witnessed Thor face the Destroyer and regain his full power. The Warriors and Sif, along with Thor, returned to Asgard after Heimdall, before he succumbed to unconsciousness, had summoned the Bifrost to bring them back home. Thor told Sif and the Warriors to get Heimdall to the infirmary when he confronted Loki

After the Bifrost is destroyed, Volstagg went to a celebration with the return of Thor with his wife and children. However, Thor left in the middle of the feast, still grieving for his lost brother.

Thor: The Dark World

In the final attempt to bring peace to the Nine Realms since the Bifrost was repaired, Volstagg fought during the Battle of Vanaheim with bravery and witnessed Thor defeat the Kronan Marauder. In the aftermath of the battle, Volstagg celebrated with his wife and children. He and Fandral left Asgard and returned with more Marauder prisoners. When one of the prisoners, escaped, and it cost Queen Frigga her life, Volstagg and the other Warriors attended her funeral.

After the sack of Asgard, Volstagg decided to assist Thor in helping break both Loki and Jane Foster from custody in order to get Jane off world to lure Malekith to them, where Thor would destroy the Aether when the time was right. When the group retrieves Loki, Volstagg threatens to kill the god of mischief if he betrays Thor.

Thor: Ragnarok

After Hela broke out of her prison due to Odin's interference, she killed Fandral and Volstagg when they attempted to attack her. Volstagg's death was avenged alongside his friends, as Hela was killed by Surtur, which caused the destruction of Asgard.
