The history of this incarnation of Beta Ray Bill, more specifically how he met Thor and received his own hammer, Stormbreaker, most likely mirrors that of his Earth-616 counterpart.

At his first appearance in this reality, Beta Ray Bill and Thor had just returned from fighting a group of Skrulls. When he and Thor go to their favorite tavern for a drink, they find their table occupied by Power Pack, who now called themselves the Warriors Four and were on a quest to find the Golden Apples of Idunn. Power Pack and Thor shared some tales of their adventures. Katie Power was particularly interested in Beta Ray Bill due to his horselike apperance and her love for ponies.

The two groups of heroes gained each others respects when Power Pack helped Thor and Beta Ray Bill defeat Hrymer, who had come to the tavern to seek revenge for how Thor humiliated him at some point in the past. To thank them for their help, Thor agreed to ask his father, Odin, permission to give Power Pack some of the Golden Apples.

However, Power Pack comming to Asgard and Hrymer attacking them was all a plan cooked up by Loki and Amora the Enchantress. The clothes Loki had given Power Pack earlier contained special gems that, once inside the walls of Asgard, allowed Enchantress to cast a spell that turned all Asgardians and Beta Ray Bill into babies. When Julie, Katie and Jack set out to get the Golden Apples now that Idunn could no longer do so (having been turned into a baby herself), the young Thor and Beta Ray Bill accompanied them, with Beta Ray Bill actually allowing Thor to ride him like a horse. When they brought the apples back to Odin's throneroom, Loki took them and had Power Pack captured.

With the Golden Apples now in the hands of Loki and Hrymer, the Asgardians began to rapidly age, which in turn started Ragnarok and awoke Jormungand, who came to devour Thor (like the legends said he would). The aging process somehow also affected Beta Ray Bill, who regained his real age and joined Thor, Power Pack and the Pet Avengers in battle against the giant Serpent. All of their attacks failed, untill Alex grabbed Mjolnir and attacked Jormungang, proving himself worthy of the power of Thor. Julie meanwhile figured out a way to get the apples back. At her suggestion, Thor destroyed the gems, causing the de-aging spell to backfire agains Loki, Enchantress and Hrymer. With Loki turned into a baby, Julie was able to get the Apples back and avert Ragnarok.


Seemingly those of Beta Ray Bill of Earth-616.
