    In 1003 A.D Harald Jaekelsson and his vikings where doomed for a thousand years after slaying an entire village. The only survivor was the village’s wise man who cast a spell on them to sail for millennium, even after he was killed by an arrow from a viking the spell was casted. They had to go to the New World but they never reached it. They encountered Columbus’ ships, the Titanic and aircraft carriers. In 2003 they reached Manhattan. They became superhuman zombies and killed and raped everything on their way. Harald was disgusted after killing a policewoman because modern era people send women to fight. They took over the city and killed thousands of marines brutally. Thor tried to fight him but Harald broke his palms instead and threw him in the river. Thor was rescued by Dr. Strange who helped him to find the wise man’s descendants fro the past to fight the vikings. They gathered Sigrid the Viking, Erik Loonroth and Magnus of the Danes. Harald kept Manhattan under siege for three days and defeated the Avengers too, on his flying ship. They had even constructed a massive hill in the middle of New York city made from decapitated human skulls. He was sent to space by Thor in their final confrontation.
