Donald Blake in this alternate Marvel Universe is a world renowned archaeologist & historian specializing in Norse history & mythology. His expertise in Norse myths & history brings him to the attention of Loki, who uses his mystical abilities to covertly fuel Blake & his research team into seeking the hiding place of the mythical Destroyer, the Asgardian doomsday weapon created by Odin hidden on Earth centuries ago, which Loki seeks to gain & use against Asgard.
