Quote1 The madness is thinking that that any real Thor would suffer you to live. There is no madness, there is only justice. I am Ragnarok. Quote2



Years ago when the Avengers first started, Iron Man found a strand of hair that had fallen off of Thor's head. Tony kept the hair sample in case he might need it for later use.[5]

When the New Warriors attempted to gain ratings for their reality show by capturing a group of escaped supervillains, Nitro used his explosive powers which killed most of the New Warriors and children at a nearby school at a wide range. The government then proposed the Superhuman Registration Act to have all people with superhuman powers register with the government. When the Superhuman Registration Act became law, Tony knew that they would need some serious strength on their side and the time had come to use the strand of Thor's hair. Stark created a clone of Thor from the strand where he fused the clone DNA with Stark Industries technology. He did this by working together with Mister Fantastic and Henry Pym, who unbeknownst to Stark was actually Skrull impostor Criti Noll.[2]

Civil War[]

The Pro-Registration side eventually set a trap for the Anti-Registration group, who were now known as the Secret Avengers. When the Secret Avengers attempt to escape, the Thor clone used his mechanical hammer to blast a hole through Goliath's chest, killing him instantly. The Thor clone continued his assault until the Invisible Woman uses her powers to protect the Secret Avengers and allow them to escape. The Thor clone was immediately shut down and taken back to base. Once they returned, Reed Richards began to examine what could have gone wrong with the clone.[5]

The Thor clone provoked a wave of shock among the opponents.[11][12]

During the final battle of the Civil War, Thor led Captain Marvel and the Order to the fight.[6] He faced Storm, unleashing his wrath upon her and causing damage to the Wakandan Embassy. Storm was quickly joined by Susan Storm who wanted to destroy her husband's creation, but both were replaced by Hercules,[13] who destroyed him.[6]

Camp Hammond[]

Under repair at Camp Hammond, the clone was activated by a safety measure built into it by the Skrull that posed as Henry Pym, Criti Noll.[3] Thinking he was Thor, the clone retook his hammer. But when Baron Von Blitzschlag told him that he was simply a clone, he was apparently killed for it. The clone, codenamed Ragnarok, went on a rampage, easily dispatching the Initiative and the New Warriors, who rushed to stop his violent march of destruction.[1] Baron Von Blitzschlag, who survived his previous encounter with Ragnarok, confronted him, goading him into attacking him with lightning, which only strengthened the old man.

Ragnarok was about to vanquish Von Blitzschlag with pure physical force when the crafty Baron dismissed the notion as futile. He stated that while he could easily kill everyone here or even in the world, this would not change what he was in fact: an android-clone of the real Thor. Unconvinced, Ragnarok was shown proof that such methods were possible when one of the Scarlet Spiders revealed he and his "brothers" were all clones as well.

Ragnarok as a member of the Dark Avengers


Blitzschlag told Ragnarok that the real Thor was living in Asgard, which was now physically in the realm of Earth (or Midgard), floating above Oklahoma. Ragnarok resolved that it mattered not whether he was or wasn't a clone, but rather that his warrior's resolve was true.[14] He flew off to presumably confront Thor and his fellow Asgardians and battled Volstagg during the Siege of Asgard.[15] Ultimately, Ragnarok was killed by the real Thor.[7]

Dark Avengers[]

Ragnarok and Moonstone

Ragnarok's body was recovered by A.I.M., who lacked the resources to repair it. However, when A.I.M. joined a reborn H.A.M.M.E.R. they finally were able to, and Monica Rappaccini promised to rebuild it for Norman Osborn's new team of Avengers.[16] They fought the Avengers on Osborn's behalf but were eventually defeated and imprisoned together with Osborn.[17]

New Thunderbolts[]

After the Thunderbolts went missing in the timestream, the Dark Avengers were recruited as a replacement team. They were implanted with nanites in order to prevent them from going rogue and placed under the leadership of Luke Cage. On their first mission, Ragnarok and the Dark Avengers were sent to the new nation of Sharzhad.[10]

  • Cloned Asgardian Physiology: Much like the original Thor, the Thor clone's strength, endurance and resistance to injury are greater than the vast majority of his superhuman race and most superhumans. However, he wasn't anywhere near as powerful or strong as the original Thor, only possessing a portion of his power and strength. While the real Thor was at the very least an equal to Hercules in hand-to-hand combat and superior when using his hammer, Hercules defeated Ragnarok and crushed his head with his own hammer, although the clone was able to do surprisingly well and held his own for a period of time. Additionally, Thor was able to easily overpower and destroy Ragnarok when they clashed. Despite this, Ragnarok was still a force to be reckoned with, as he was able to effortlessly take on Storm, killed Goliath, and was taking on the entire Initiative and defeating them by himself.[18]
    • Superhuman Strength: Ragnarok has vast amounts of superhuman strength, being able to lift 100 tons.[18] He has displayed enough strength to easily overpower Volstagg and injure him, although the latter still stated that his blows weren't as powerful as Thor's.[15] He has also been able to draw blood from the nigh-invulnerable Luke Cage with the power of his blows.[10]
    • Superhuman Stamina
    • Nigh-Invulnerability: He is immune to conventional disease and nearly invulnerable to injury. His flesh and bones are several times denser than a human's.[18] He was undamaged from attacks by Storm, such as when she launched a truck on him and detonated it with lighting or when she hit him with several thunderbolts at once.[13] During his fight against Volstagg, he took numerous blows from the older god without any real damage and it took all of Asgard falling on him to stop him,[15] which he survived with only superficial wounds. After freeing himself, he engaged the real Thor in battle, taking extremely severe damage from his counterpart before being put down.[7] He has also withstood the blows of Luke Cage and the sonic blasts of Songbird without any real harm.[10]
    • Superhuman Speed[18]
    • Superhuman Agility[18]
    • Regenerative Healing Factor: As the clone of an Asgardian, Ragnarok possesses incredible regenerative abilities. After having his brain's cybernetic components removed he was able to regrow the missing parts with organic tissue in less than a day.[19]




  • Alternate Mjolnir: After realizing his status as a clone, Ragnarok was able to wield the hammer of an alternate universe's fallen Thor.[20]
    • Electrokinesis: Ragnarok can use Mjolnir to generate and control lightning.[20]
    • Flight: Ragnarok can use Mjolnir to fly at great speed.[21]


  • Ragnarok has sported a new look to distinguish himself from Thor.[20]
