Lord Harald Jaekelsson
a powerful cursed viking from 1000 AD, appears in modern day New York, and with his ship of cursed Viking's they proceed to utterly destroy and cut a path through concrete and flesh alike in New York, with even the mighty Avengers
and US military failing to stop them. Doctor Strange
took it upon themselves to find warriors though out time who had the required blood linage to be able to harm the cursed Vikings. Magnus of the Danes, a Teutonic Knight was one such warrior.
Just before he is pulled into the time stream, he had just finished slaughtering a village of heathen unbelievers, and is about to be sent to France to spread the word of God. He is paired with Sigrid the Viking
and Erik Loonroth
a World War 2 pilot.
