Hel is a region of Niflheim that serves as the home of the dead who are neither honored nor dishonored.
Hel was among the worlds labeled by Erik Selvig on his chalkboard mapping the Nine Realms. Loki also promised Algrim he would see him in Hel following their final confrontation.
Hel was visible among other realms during the Convergence during the Battle of Greenwich.
