Bowen Destroyer Statue The Destroyer limited Edition # 315 OF 700 Thor.
The Destroyer is an enchanted suit of armor forged by the King of theNorse gods,Odin. When it first appeared it was hinted that the Destroyer had been created as a weapon to face some dark menace from the stars. First seen in the Temple of Darkness in Asia, the Destroyer is used by Thor's arch-foeLokiagainst him. Animated by a nearby lifeforce, it battles Thor to a standstill, Loki is forced to intervene and stop the Destroyer using lethal force when Odin threatens to kill him. Thor then buries the armor under a mountain slide.
The armor is briefly used again by Loki in a failed offer to kill Odin,before being salvaged byKarnilla, Queen of the Norns, and animated by Thor's companionSif, who attempted to use it to battle the villain theWreckerwhen Thor was temporarily deprived of his godhood and powers. The Destroyer, however, attacks Thor, with the battle ending when Sif breaks her connection with it.
Thor later offers the armor to the World DevourerGalactus, in exchange for releasing his current accepts, and the Destroyer acts as his Herald, detectingCounter-Earthfor the entity before going on to battle theFantastic Four.The Destroyer is finally recaptured for reuse by Loki.
When the menace from the stars is revealed to be theCelestials, Thor learns the Skyfather gods (Odin,Zeus, etc.) pooled their resources a millennium before to create the Destroyer as a weapon to stop the arrival of the so-called Fourth Host of Celestials. At the penultimate moment, Odin enters the Destroyer armor and then absorbs the life essences of all present in Asgard (with the exception of the absent Thor), growing to a height of 2,000 feet (610m). The Destroyer then draws the Odinsword, and together with theUni-Mindconfronts the Fourth Host. The Celestials, however, dissipate the Uni-Mind and melt the Destroyer armor into slag, scattering the life-forces of the Asgardians.The initiative of the Skymother goddesses pacifies the Celestials, and Thor revives his people via Odin by using a fraction of the gathered power of the other Skyfathers.
Loki eventually finds the remains of the Destroyer and reforms it in a offer to destroy Thor, who has been reduced to pulp after a triumphant but destructive battle against theMidgard Serpent. The Destroyer, however, cannot kill Thor due to a curse induced by the Norse Queen of the dead,Helawhich made his bones brittle and incapable of healing or dying.Thor wrests control of the armor from the host—an enthralledFrost Giantnamed Siggorth—through sheer force of will and goes on to defeat Loki. The Destroyer - depicted as thinking and speaking for the first time - tries to take back control from Thor but fails. Wearing Thor's raiment and wielding his hammerMjolnir, the Destroyer confronts Hela and forces her to restore Thor to human form.The Destroyer is left in a crystal in Hela's realm, and is eventually animated by the goddessLorelei. Lorelei battles several Asgardians and subsequently becomes trapped in the dimension of theGreat Beasts.
The Destroyer is later deployed by trolls, who empower it with the spirit of the villainMaestro, an evil future version of theHulk. Unable to physically stop the Destroyer, the Hulk enters the armor on the mental plane and banishes the Maestro.Thor has two more encounters with the Destroyer, with the armor almost killing him on the first occasion and breaking his jaw on the second.The armor is eventually retrieved by Loki and occupied by the entityDesak, although Thor—equipped with the Odinpower—decapitates it with one throw ofMjolnir.
The Asgardian godBaldertakes control of the armor when Thor was on a quest to locate his missing people,with villainDoctor Doomlater using a copy of the Destroyer armor to attack the Asgardians.
After Thor loses the ability to wield Mjolnir,and the hammer is claimed by an unknown woman,Odin dispatches the Destroyer - animated by his brother Cull theSerpent- to reclaim it.Queen of the godsFriggaforces Odin to withdraw the Destroyer when she confronts him with the knowledge that he has essentially become the villain with his unprovoked attack.Powers and abilities
