Around 500 AD in Demark, lived Grendel and his Mother who attacked and ate the sleeping men of King Hrothgar, King of the Danes, until Beowulf (possibly an alias of Gilgamesh or Ulysses Bloodstone) stopped them. Grendel had his arm ripped off and had supposedly died. Insane with despair, his mother sought revenge against Beowulf, as the legend goes. The Asgardian God Thor had travelled to Pittsburg to melt and make a suit of armor out of Asgardian steel due to a curse that made his bones brittle at the time. Hearing the forging Thor made the Dark Elves of Svartalfheim attacked Thor under the command of Wormwood, leader of the Dark Elves. Cautioned by his fellow Dark Elves, he released Grendel who attacked Thor. Thor pierced Grendel`s armor with an iron pole and saw Grendel green blood flow. Grendel command the Dark Elves hold Thor down and was about to deliver the killing blow when Loki teleported Thor away.
