This battle was a battle of the Gods, with Hela destroying Mjolnir and Thor getting cornered at the end of the battle. He taps into his Asgardian divinity and seeks consultation from his father one last time, who reminds Thor that he is not the God of Hammers and rather the god of Thunder. This revelation triggers an event of transcendence in Thor where he can tap into his true power and at least for the time being is bale to shock Hela and destroy the army of the dead to allow the people of Asgardian to make their escape. Thor can distract Hela long enough for Loki to put Surtur’s helmet in the eternal flame and trigger the prophecy of the Ragnarök.

Finally, Captain breaks into Iron man’s chest piece and shuts down its power to make him handicapped and leave the scene with Bucky in his arms.
