The Warriors Three also helped defend Asgardians from outsiders such as Bruce Banner, AKA the Hulk, Mangog and Norrin Radd, AKA Silver Surfer.
When Balder the Brave was hospitalized on Earth, Odin sent the Warriors Three to retrieve him. Balder found out Dr. Donald Blake, Thor’s alter ego, saved him and reunited with the trio. They then joined Thor in a battle against the robotic Thermal Man.
Returning to Asgard, they found Odin in Odinsleep, a habitual period of rest required to maintain his powers, and Loki had usurped the throne. The Warriors Three refused to obey Loki and resisted him until the arrival of the fire demon Surtur made Loki flee the realm. They then helped defend Asgard from Surtur until Odin revived and drove the demon away. Subsequently, Loki exchanged bodies with Thor. Odin banished Thor to Hell, where Mephisto tried to claim his soul, but Sif, Balder and the Warriors Three freed him and Thor warriors three reclaimed his body from Loki.
When a sliver of power from the cosmic being Infinity corrupted Odin, he dominated the Warriors’ wills, but Karnilla and Loki released them, and they aided Thor in awakening Odin from Infinity’s influence.
When Loki took over Asgard again after Odin entered the Odinsleep, the Warriors opposed his rule and intended wedding to Sif, so the trio forced Odin to awaken so he could help end Loki’s reign.
Odin sent Thor and the Warriors Three to the so-called “World’s End” to obtain mystical waters from the Twilight Pool to mix with Asgard’s Cosmic Well, granting Odin increased powers which allowed him to best the Mangog. With Odin on the verge of death from his battle with Mangog, the Warriors Three helped drive out the Olympian death-god Pluto, who tried to claim his soul.
The Warriors Three joined Thor, Sif, Balder, and Hildegarde against Ego-Prime, but when they learned that both they and the creature had been pawns in Odin’s scheme to awaken the power of three of the Young Gods, Thor fell out with his father, and all seven Asgardians were exiled to Earth. They temporarily lived at Avengers Mansion and aided Thor against Mephisto and others. When Balder began suffering from madness, Volstagg stood to watch over him while the others returned to Asgard, only to find Odin absent, having been enslaved by the extraterrestrial Vrellnexians. After saving Odin, Fandral and Hogun joined the others against Mercurio and Xorr the God-Jewel before finally returning to Asgard where they reunited with Volstagg and a recovered Balder in battling the sorcerer Igron, who had seized control of the realm with enchanted duplicates of the Asgardians. With Igron’s defeat, Odin resumed the throne and lifted their banishment.
The Warriors Three next joined Thor alongside his foe Zarrko the Tomorrow Man against the reality-destroying Time-Twisters, then briefly stayed in New York during which they fought a gang of diamond thieves and helped unite lovers Mary Miller and Arnold Slackmyster in marriage.
