Mr. Mike Jones of Ferrum Tech had been on guard duty for almost twelve hours straight now. By the time he saw a luminescent glow coming from around a corner, he thought he might be hallucinating. He rebooted his mainframes just to make sure there weren't any bugs in his armor. He still saw the green glow. He thought he might check it out. (He could use an excuse to get up off his rear anyway)
He rushed over to the eerie green glow, and saw a man in green armor with twin golden horns pearched atop his head.
"Wh-who are you?" Jones demanded to know.
The figure smiles a creepy, wicked smile that put Mike on edge. "It's no surprise you don't remember me...we all 'died' hundreds of years ago..."
Jones held up his repulsor ray. "I WILL ASK YOU ONE MORE TIME! WHO THE **** ARE YOU?!"
The figured grinned, letting out a laugh. "Very well...you may call me Loki.
Mike knew the tales about how the Iron Army had killed the Asgardians, noting Loki was a threat, he blasted him with a repulsor ray....but to his surprise....it didn't work. The beam went straight through him and crashed into the wall behind him.
Loki laughed again. "Many years it has taken me to perfect my astral form....finally we can communicate with you." Loki slowly raised a finger, and tapped Mike's forehead. "....and just a little bit more." Mike knew whatever Loki asked, he would do without hesistation...it was like watching someone else control your body.
"My spell won't last long...but while it does...I just want you to do me one teeny tiny favor." Loki said, grinning with malice. He whispered into his ear: "Open the Bifrost...one more time."
In a puff of smoke, Loki vanished.
Loki's body snapped up, his spirit having returned to him. He looked around, finally speaking. "It worked!" He rushed down the halls, shouted for Thor, and his sons, Modi and Magni. HURRY" Loki shouted. "WE DON'T HAVE MUCH TIME, AND ONLY ONE OF US CAN GO!
The Bifrost Chamber:
The family met, as Ferrum Tech's cannon fired, releasing the Bifrost for just an instant. Wind whipped around the place, capes swirled, Loki even stumbed a bit.
"Have you decided who is going?" Loki asked.
"Magni stepped forward. "I have decided to go."
"I will miss you, my brother." Modi said.
The two then exchanged a brief hug.
"No tears, Modi." Magni said..."no tears."
"You'll need this!" Thor said, handing Magni mjolnir.
"Why not?" Thor replied. I used it....you can use it as well as I once did...be strong Magni. The two stared each other down.
"Make me proud." Thor declared, with a smile only a father could give.
Magni hurled himself through the Bifrost, adding the final comment: "I WILL!" He descended to Earth...
....the first Asgardian in over one hundred years to ever set foot on Midgard.
