"You have gone too far, Loki. This is no game. Soon I shall enter the Odinsleep and Asgard will not have my power to protect it to bring the Frost Giants here to try to usurp your own father!"
―Odin to Loki[src]

Odin, the Allfather, is the ruler of Asgard, the father of Thor and the adoptive father of Loki. He sleeps once a year to regain his strength in a sleep cycle known as the "Odinsleep" to protect his kingdom from invaders like the Frost Giants. After he banished Loki to the Isle of Silence, he became cross with Thor's decision to remain on Midgard during the next Odinsleep instead of helping to protect Asgard, but he decided to let him go.

Falling into the Odinsleep, Loki schemed after he was freed by the Enchantress and the Executioner and started a plan to conquer Asgard with it's main enemies. He was temporarily succeeded, but was ultimately defeated by Asgardian forces as well as the Avengers. Odin then banished him to a realm to be tortured by the Midgard Serpent.

Biography[]

Odin was the king of Asgard that served for centuries and fought in many battles including one against Surtur as retold by his sons Thor and Loki. He had been seen as a source of salvation for years as Algrim and the Dark Elves had begged him for help in their war against the Frost Giants, but refused due to the fact that more Asgardian lives would have been lost than he could have afforded. Instead, he only fought in the war against the Frost Giants once Surtur had aligned himself with the Dark Elves knowing that it was only because Surtur had wanted the to take over Jotunheim. After Algrim had taken the Sword of Surtur from Thor and destroyed the Einherjar, he had attacked Odin and burned his right eye. Thor and Loki were able to stop and destroy Algrim and had made their father proud.

Loki's war[]

"You have the thanks of Asgard, mortals. You have our respect. To the mightiest heroes in the nine realms... Hail Avengers!"
―Odin[src]

Odin was on the brink of his Odinsleep when Loki had the Frost Giants attack Asgard. Odin sent for Thor who defeated Loki and the Frost Giants. Odin later scolded Loki for this action and then banished him to the Isle of Silence. Thor later tells Odin that what Loki stated to him is right and states that he will handle things on Midgard until Odin calls him in case of a major attack on Asgard. When the Avengers battled Loki, Odin awakens from his Odinsleep and banishes Loki to a dimension where Loki will be tormented by the Midgard Serpent for eternity and respectfully honors the Avengers for having helped Thor to save Asgard.

When Thor was about to be finished by Beta Ray Bill who was carrying Mjolnir, he summoned the one who worthy to lift up Mjolnir. He was surprised to see Bill instead of his own son and apprehended him. He soon summoned Thor and Bill explained his backstory mistaken their aura the same as the Fire Demons.
