Synopsis for "To Become an Immortal!"
Following their encounter with the High Evolutionary, Thor explains to Jane Foster that Odin has consented that they can be wed and that he is going to take her to Asgard. When transporting Jane to Asgard she is almost overwhelmed by the teleportation process and even more so when they materialize on the Bifrost Bridge just as a warrior party is returning home with a Troll as their prisoner.
After an encounter with Heimdall (which further startles Jane), Thor takes his love to meet Odin. The encounter has Jane completely in awe. Odin, in honour of Thor and Jane's impending marriage, uses his powers to transform Jane into a god just like they are. As well as being imbued with immortality, Jane also learns that she can fly, however she lacks the necessary skill to stay aloft and Thor must come to her rescue.
As a final test of her worth, Jane is locked in a room to face the Unknown to see if she has the courage to be among the gods. However, Jane is horrified by the creature and cowers away from it in utter fear, forcing Thor to come to her rescue and fight the monster off. Finding everything too much, Jane demands to be changed back to normal and return to her normal life with no memory of Asgard. Odin complies with her wish, in spite of Thor's protests, and Jane is shunted back to Earth.
When Thor continues to protest Odin's decision, the All-Father exerts his will upon his son who ultimately accepts Jane's fate. Odin then sends Thor to the realm of Gundershelm to protect the Glade of Crystals from attack. Thor is transported there where he defends the Glade from an attack by Trolls, while back on Earth, Jane Foster suddenly appears in a hospital.
She has been restored to human form, and has no memory what happened in Asgard, however Odin had manipulated events so that Jane would soon be hired on as a nurse for Dr. Kincaid, whom Jane instantly finds attractive.
As Thor finishes his battle with the Trolls he is confronted by Sif, his old lover from ages ago. The two instantly reconnect and their old romance once more begins to flourish. Watching this Odin feels satisfied that his son has once more found love.
