"Once I have Mjølnir, I will return the items they've stolen from you. Deal?"
"No. Look what's down there! You think you're just gonna walk in, grab our stuff and walk out?"
"No. I'm gonna fly out."
Jane Foster and Thor[src]

The Infiltration into the S.H.I.E.L.D. Crater Investigation Site was an attempt by Thor to take back Mjølnir, which was being analyzed by S.H.I.E.L.D. agents.

Odin banishes Thor to Midgard.

After starting a skirmish on Jotunheim, Odin rescued Thor, Sif, Loki, and the Warriors Three from the Frost Giants and returned to Asgard. At the Bifrost Bridge, Odin ordered the warriors to take an injured Fandral to the Healing Room. Odin proceeded to chastised Thor for his recklessness and could get innocent people kill for attempting to start a war with the Frost Giants. Thor told Odin he was an old man and a fool. Acknowledging that Thor had proven himself to be unworthy to be king, Odin then took Mjølnir from Thor and removed his powers before using the Bifrost to banish Thor to Earth. [4]

Arriving in a wormhole, Thor was knocked over by a truck driven by Doctor Jane Foster and held Erik Selvig and Darcy Lewis as passengers. Thor awoke and realized that he was on Earth, ordering Heimdall to open the Bifrost to return back to Asgard. He then asked the three which of the Nine Realms was he on, leading to Lewis to pull out a taser. Disgusted by this, Thor stated that nothing could harm him until she tasered him to unconsciousness.

Taken to a hospital, Thor awoke and realized that the doctors were trying to take his blood, causing him to attack. He was quickly sedated and tied to a hospital bed. Thor eventually escaped and was hit again by Jane Foster in the truck, who apologized and took him to her Wormhole research center. After spending lunch with the group, Thor overheard two men discussing about the Hammer found in the ground. Realizing that the walk was too far, Thor went to a pet shop and asked for a horse, who stated they had none, leaving him unsatisfied. Meeting up with Foster again, she offered him a ride to the crash site so he can his hammer and she can get her research back on the Bifrost Bridge.

Thor fails to pull Mjølnir from the crater.

Making it the crash site, they found it covered in a makeshift facility protecting the hammer. Thor gave Foster his jacket, predicting it would rain and told her that he intended to fly out once he received their equipment. Thor entered the facility, taking down two agents without being noticed. Eventually, S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Jasper Sitwell sounded the alarm once the guards failed to call in. Thor proceeded to take down many agents, eventually making it to Mjølnir after battling a big guard in the mud. Rejoicing his victory, Thor pulled and failed to retrieve Mjølnir from the crater, realizing that his powers have been stripped from him.

Thor screamed to the heavens and fell onto his knees in defeat. S.H.I.E.L.D. proceeded to take Thor into custody, who didn't fight back and noticed the Asgardian symbol appear on the hammer. [5]

"You made my men, some of the most highly trained professionals in the world, look like a bunch of minimum-wage mall cops. That's hurtful."

Thor is questioned by Agent Phil Coulson.

Agent Phil Coulson questioned Thor, who refused to answer any of his questions on where he learned his combat skills. Coulson ended the questioning by telling him that his agency would get answers, as they were good at doing that. After Coulson left the room, Loki appeared and informed Thor that Odin had died due to what has happening, and that Loki has been crowned king of Asgard. When asking Loki could he come home, Loki replied that he couldn't, wanting to make things peaceful as Laufey and the Frost Giants wanted to wage war.

In addition, Loki told Thor that Frigga had forbidden his return, leaving Thor to agree with the terms and thanked Loki for coming. Unbeknownst to Thor, he was given false information as Odin fell into Odinsleep and Loki had taken the throne. Before leaving, Loki attempted to lift the hammer, but failed as he was not worthy. Agent Coulson returned and saw Thor saying goodbye to thin air, telling him they weren't done. [6]
