The Last Words of MCU Heroes and Villains

The Last Words of MCU Heroes and Villains

2020/06/26

Of all the Marvel franchises that kill of major characters, Thor seems to have the highest body count. For example, in the first film, the ice giant Laufey makes this malevolent proclamation to a comatose Odin: "It's said you can still hear and see what transpires around you. I hope it's true, so that you may know your death came at the hand of Laufey." Then he's killed by his own biological son, Loki, as proof of the god of mischief's loyalty to Odin, which he will of course use to his advantage later.



Thor: The Dark World claims the life of Thor's mother, Frigga. When Malekith shows up looking for the Aether, he demands to know it's location. And before the Dark Elf kills her, Frigga defiantly claims, "I'll never tell you." Then, Malekith himself dies while declaring, "The Aether cannot be destroyed," a prophetic declaration of its future use as an Infinity Stone.


But when it comes to Asgardians kicking the bucket, it doesn't get any grislier than Thor: Ragnarok. All of the Warriors Three meet their fate at the hands of Hela, the goddess of death, when she returns to claim her throne. Volstagg defiantly asks, "Who are you? What have you done with Thor?" And then he's stabbed to death. Fandral lets loose with a guttural scream before, yep, he's stabbed to death. And finally, Hogun snarls, "Go back to whatever cave you crept out of, you evil demoness," before ... well, you know.



The deaths don't stop here, though. Skurge declares, "For Asgard," and then he sacrifices himself in battle for his people, while Hela shouts one final "No!" when she realizes Surtur is about to kill her. Then, in Avengers: Infinity War, Thor's best friend, Heimdall, defies Thanos and activates the Bifrost while praying "Allfathers, let the dark magic flow through me one last time."
