Balder Blake is the son of Thor and the Enchantress. On his eighteenth birthday, Blake made his third annual attempt to lift his father's hammer, Mjolnir, from its memorial, which was placed to mark the end of the Secret Wars. Even though he was still unworthy, his friends Crusader (Sarah Rogers), Mustang (CJ), Firefly (Matthew Storm), and Torrent (Kendall Logan) were still supportive of his efforts.
While he and his friends helped to thwart his half-brother, Malefactor (Vincent von Doom) from his attempt to return to and conquer the original Earth, they found out that Crusader was worthy to wield Mjolnir. She was reluctant to, in deference to Blake's feelings about not being worthy himself, but she had to in order attempt the trip back to the original Earth, which was now possible due to the return of the self-exiled Hulk, and his new invention, which was based on the use of Mjolnir's dimensional portal opening abilities. The kids did not get back to Earth as they expected it on that trip; instead they found an Earth that was swarming with Sentinels. After they destroyed one of them, they decided to remain there and free that world as Avengers.
