Dargo Ktor grew up on a future Earth dominated by the oppressive Corp; after the discovery of Thor's hammer Mjolnir embedded in some rock, some of the populace, the Cult of the Hammer, drew hope from the belief that one of them might prove worthy to lift it, and thus gain Thor's power. Though Dargo was skeptical, feeling the people should depend on themselves and not an old legend to gain their freedom, he and his girlfriend Salla still attended a secret ceremony on September 4th, 2587 AD where cultists tried to pick up Mjolnir. Having noticed the cult, and wishing to prevent them from restoring his extradimensionally exiled step-brother, Loki allied himself with the Corp and sent minions to attack the meeting; during the assault Dargo grabbed Mjolnir and, judged worthy, was transformed into an avatar of Thor. When even his rock troll Tyrus the Terrible proved unable to defeat Dargo, an angry Loki destroyed Corp Central out of pique, ending their rule. Sensing Mjolnir being pulled towards the true Thor, Dargo sent it to him through a dimensional portal.
Some time later, for reasons unknown to Dargo, Mjolnir returned to him, and he resumed being Thor, battling the likes of Demonstaff and briefly being used as a pawn against Earth-616's Fantastic Four by Zarrko the Tomorrow Man. Dargo and Salla had married by April 2591, when Dargo encountered Earth-691's time-traveling Guardians of the Galaxy and helped them defeat the Korvac-empowered Varley.
A few months later, in September of that same year, he was duped by Zarrko into traveling back in time to Earth-616 to attack Eric Masterson, then Thor's modern-day avatar, whom Zarrko claimed had stolen Thor's hammer and thus been responsible for it being lost until Dargo's era; Dargo fought both Eric and Stellaris before Beta Ray Bill, another "Thor" intervened, and convinced Dargo of Zarrko's deception. Zarrko intended to siphon the combined energy from Eric and Dargo's hammers to power his Radical Time Stabilizer and collapse the multiverse into a single timeline, but together the Thors overcame Zarrko and his time-displaced allies, before Dargo returned to his own timeline.
Dargo Ktor was the last champion of Midgard. Wielding Mjolnir, he opposed the all-powerful techno-sorcerer and Thor's half-brother Loki. At some point, he was left for dead by Loki in the ruins of Minneapolis, his wife killed. The walking cane that transforms into Mjolnir was taken by Loki and kept in Loki's stronghold trophy room. Years later, Loki shock trooper Tannan Six was driven by his curiosity to take both the wooden cane and Captain America's Shield, and deserted. He met Tatiana Maximoff, a fugitive from Loki, who told him about the Avengers. Aided by Hercules, Thaddeus Stark and Deva Van Dyne, they reassembled the Avengers and went out in Minneapolis to found Dargo and convinced him to reclaim his mantle as Thor, causing Loki to fear for the future.
