Volstagg bested the Serpent in combat in his youth, but Odin cast a spell making everyone, including Hogun and Fandral, forget the victory. Years later, a nazi woman awakened the Serpent, who summoned his Worthy (Attuma, Absorbing Man, Titania, Juggernaut, Thing, Hulk, Grey Gargoyle). Odin built a death-ray, and after the Ms. Marvel begged Volstagg for help, Volstagg joined Hawkeye, Spider-Man, Wolverine, Iron Fist, and Thor in defeating the Serpent, but Thor was killed. Volstagg cooked the Serpent up in the pan of Sc'Largen (obtained in a previous adventure) and ate him. Odin took Volstagg's waste later to dispose of it in another realm..
