When Odin becomes tyrannical, the Warriors Three invoke his anger and are sentenced to death. Young palace Guardsman Arko, who has recently married, becomes involved with the trio and receives the same death sentence as well. On the day of their death, the four are rescued by the Asgardian sorceress called 'The Enchantress' and spirited away. The five of them become a rebel cell against Odin. Arko is accepted as a sworn sword-brother with the Warriors Three.
It is later discovered their ruler is not in his right mind, having been affected by the God of Mischief, Loki.
As seen during the aborted execution attempt, the wives of Arko and Volstagg have become friends, comforting each other in their grief.
