The Twilight Sword,[8] also known as the Sword of Doom,[1] was reforged by the Fire Giant Surtur using the "Burning Galaxy" (created by exploding the home galaxy of the Korbinites),[9][10] with the life force of the planets in it powering the sword,[11] to set the universe afire.[citation needed]


It was used as a power source by Loki[12] and Morgan Le Fay.[13]

Apparently the broken Twilight was retrieved and stored in the armory of Asgard.[4]

Beta Ray Bill claims Twilight

After his last defeat at the hands of the Asgardians, a repaired Twilight Sword appeared at the deepest level of Muspelheim,[11] alongside a resurrected Surtur, unable to escape that part of the realm. Twilight deemed Surtur unworthy of it, and left him waiting for a warrior to prove his worthiness to the sword.[14] Beta Ray Bill reached the level of the sword to claim it, but was stopped by Surtur.[15] After a fight between Surtur and Bill, the Korbinite claimed Twilight and used it to slay Surtur and return to his mortal form. Twilight was later placed in a containment unit on Skuttlebutt.[14] Later, Bill used Twilight to fight the God of Hammers.[16]


The sword was capable of channeling Surtur's fiery powers.
