Origin

All-Father Thor's life closely parallels and is tied to that of the Thor of Earth-616, who he refers to as being his past self;[5] to the extent that if the Earth-616 Thor were to die he would cease to exist.[6] During the War of the Realms, Thor sacrificed his eye to obtain the knowledge to defeat Malekith the Accursed, and was made All-Father of Asgard - the tale being recorded in a saga.[7]

At some point, Thor inherited the Power of the All-Father from Odin, renaming it the "Thor-Force".[5] Thor's brother Loki, falling back into evil, instigated the annihilation of all life on Earth out of spite;[8] the loss of his friends and comrades causing Thor to become a stern and cynical ruler - the spitting image of his father. At some point during his millennia-long reign, Thor had a son named Woden after his father's Anglo-Saxon name, who in turn had three daughters named Frigg, Ellisiv, and Atli.

Coming of the God-Butcher

Thor's reign was disrupted when a deicidal alien serial killer named Gorr appeared, having travelled through time using the Pool of Forevers. Bonded to the ancient All-Black symbiote, Gorr manifested a horde of monsters called Black Berserkers and began a brutal campaign - capturing and enslaving every deity he came across. Asgard was ransacked and its inhabitants captured or killed - Woden being slain and Thor's granddaughters being among the enslaved. Trapped in a cycle of being beaten and brutalized but not killed by the Black Berserkers - Gorr's way of mocking him - Thor fell into despair and wished for death.[9]

After 900 years, the Thor of Earth-616 arrived, having followed Gorr into the future through the Pool of Forevers.[10] All-Father Thor's hope and fighting spirit rekindled, the two Thors set out to attack the Black World of Gorr, joined by the young Thor from Earth-616's 6th century - who had been torn from the past by Gorr using the Pool of Forevers. The three Thors battled Gorr in an attempt to prevent him from using the Godbomb to kill all gods that ever had and ever would exist, but were ultimately defeated.[11] Crucified to a comet, All-Father Thor was sent flying into the depths of space, but freed himself and returned to Gorr's dark world, but was unable to stop the Godbomb from detonating.[1] Thor the Avenger bonded to the All-Black symbiote, halting Gorr's plan, and Young Thor killed the God-Butcher. All-Father Thor used the Thor-Force to purge Thor the Avenger of the All-Black symbiote and resurrect him when he succumbed to his wounds, casting Gorr's dark world into a black hole to prevent Young Thor from claiming the symbiote-sword out of arrogance. Reunited with his remaining family, All-Father Thor sent his past selves to their proper places in the timeline and allowed the displaced gods to settle in Asgard.[12]

Restoration of Midgard

Líf and Lífþrasir

With Earth having become lifeless, Thor often visited Midgard reflecting on its barren nature and mourning its desolation.[13] When Galactus came to devour it, Thor attempted to stop him but was thrown into deep space. Realizing he couldn't defeat Galactus as he was, Thor retrieved the All-Black symbiote and bonded to it. Corrupted by the symbiote, Thor attempted to kill the Devourer of Worlds before succumbing to his injuries and fainting.[14] Wounded during his fight with Galactus, he bled upon the Earth causing plant life to grow anew. King Thor and his granddaughters subsequently did their best to cultivate the Earth so that the flowers and trees and other plants could thrive.

Fearing his death was near, King Thor's granddaughter Ellisiv came up with the perfect gift for his birthday to lift his spirits. The three thunder goddesses gathered all the bones they can find, stardust from a comet, sap from Yggdrasil, mud from the Well of Urd, and three strands of hair from the All-Father; weaving a complex spell of life. They created hybrids of Earth's animals, such as shark-birds and zebra-flies and multi-tusked elephants. Overwhelmed by his gratitude at his granddaughters' actions, Thor used the remaining material in the cauldron to create a "Lif" and "Lifthrasir", dubbing them 'Steve' and 'Jane'.[15]

Secret Wars

When the Multiverse was destroyed as a result of the Incursions, Battleworld was formed from the remnants of the destroyed realities. King Thor was among those recreated. He later joined the Thor Corps, a group composed of multiple men and women across Battleworld and God Emperor Doom's enforcers of justice. As a Thor Corps member, King Thor worked as their Lawspeaker. King Thor was first seen when the Thor Corps arrested America Chavez of Arcadia for throwing a megalodon over the Shield.[16]

King Thor was among the Thor Corps members that showed up in Technopolis to arrest Tony Stark and Arno Stark for their crimes.[17]

End of Time

After the restoration of the Multiverse, King Thor travelled to the edge of the cosmos to observe the end of the universe and try to find a way to stop it. He was attacked by James Howlett - who had been resurrected and indwelled by the Phoenix Force.[18] Despite Thor being delighted to see his old friend for the first time in millennia, Old Man Phoenix attacked him in retaliation for bringing back the Earth, revealing that Doom - who had been collecting the powers wielded by the Prehistoric Avengers - was returning to conquer it. The two gods' battle shook the cosmos, but Old Man Phoenix was victorious;[19] only being stopped from killing Thor by the Phoenix Force's memories of being the All-Father's lover in the ancient past. Thor and Old Man Phoenix returned to Earth in time to save his granddaughters from being killed, but Thor was incapacitated by Doom's Penance Stare. Logan sacrificed himself to transfer the Phoenix Force into Mjolnir, and Thor smashed Doom into New Midgard's mantle - their 99-year battle triggering earthquakes and volcanic eruptions. Emerging victorious from a fissure, Thor collapsed into the Forever Sleep to recover; the Phoenix Force transferring to a new host and warning the Lifs and Lifthrasirs that true darkness was coming to kill them all.[4]

War of the Realms

Recalling how he had won the War of the Realms in the past, Thor prevented his granddaughters from attacking Reed Richards and Ben Grimm of the Fantastic Four when they travelled through time to recruit him to stop Malekith. Journeying to the past, All-Father Thor was reunited with the Thor from Earth-616 - who had lost an arm to Malekith and sacrificed one of his eyes to Yggdrasil to obtain the knowledge of how to defeat the dark elf warlord - and was pleased to see he'd finally grown a beard. He was less pleased to see the hot-headed and beardless Young Thor, who had been brought forward in time to reunite the trinity. Joined by Jane Foster, who became Thor again using the Mjolnir of Earth-1610, the four Thors engaged Malekith - who had bonded to the Venom symbiote in emulation of Gorr and the ancient dark god Knull - who had created All-Black to exterminate the gods.[7] All-Father Thor was pleasantly surprised when Young Thor was able to lift his Mjolnir in order to save their mother from being devoured,[6] and after Malekith was slain he offered to show his past self the wonders of the Golden Age of Craft Beer.[7]

Powers

Seemingly those of the Thor and Odin of Earth-616, he commands the Thor-Force which he inherited from his father.
