Overview

Heven (Tenth Realm) from Angela Asgard's Assassin Vol 1 5 001

The City of Heven.

Heven was one of the Ten Realms. Its inhabitants, the Angels, waged a war against Asgard. After the Queen of Angels seemingly killed his newborn infant, Aldrif, Odin used his powers to cut off Heven from the other Nine Realms and Yggdrasil.[1]

In his hatred, Odin spat a curse upon the Angels, a curse wrought of the Odinforce to bind them from forever returning home, anchoring them deeper in the void. The Odinforce Curse was so powerful that the Angels used it to power their world.[2]

The entry to Heven was later reopened by Thor and Loki.[1] With the Odinforce Curse gone, the engine that once powered Heven now threatened to implode. Desperate, the Queen of Angels sought Angela's aid, but she refused to help despite the Queen's offers.[2] Eventually, Angela invaded Heven and purified her sister from Surtur's essence in the city's furnace, paying her debt with Heven by powering the city's engine and ending the threat.[3]

When the Angels participated in the War of the Realms and invaded Midgard,[4] Angela took part in Midgard's defense. Due to the Angels' overwhelming numbers, Angela felt that the only to stop them was to draw them away from Midgard by attacking Heven itself. Angela used Skurge's Bloodaxe to travel to Heven and unleashed an army of undead gods using the Naglfar Beacon upon the city. The Angels immediately sensed the danger Heven was in and scrambled to their realm's defense. The defenders of Heven were quickly cut down, including their Queen, and Heven was left in ruins. Angela decided to let the surviving Angels become wanderers like she now was.[5]

Notes

  • Angels believed Earth was only a legend, similar to some humans' view of Heaven.[6]
