Any day of Last Stands must begin with the greatest of them all....the Tale of Skurge, the Executioner who stood alone at Gjallerbru.
Walt Simonson gave Skruge an ending so epic, so metal that the warriors and the skalds of the world unite in respect and honor.
His name was as Skurge! Say it, damn you, say it loud!
Hela, goddess of the dead and Hel stole mortals that were not hers to take in Midgard. The Thunderer and his warriors cannot allow this. So Thor, Balder and a crew of M-16 toting Einherjar travel to the realm of the dead to get them back. Skurge the Executioner. Ever the enemy of Thor and Balder travels with them. For he is tired of defeat, the mocking laughter of others and the way the Enchantress toys with his heart.
The battles are long and difficult but the forces of Asgard win back the stolen souls. They flee the underworld with the armies of Hel hot on their heels. At the end of Hela's kingdom is the Gjallerbru. A stand must be made here to delay the armies of evil.
"He stood alone at Gjallerbru...and that is answer is enough."
