Forging the Infinity Gauntlet

In order to harness the power of the Infinity Stones, the Mad Titan Thanos traveled to Nidavellir to commission the device. When the Dwarf king Eitri refused, Thanos threatened his subjects, with the Dwarf relenting, crafting a Gauntlet using an uru mold. With the gauntlet completed, Thanos killed all 299 of Eitri's subjects, before amputating the Dwarf's hands and leaving him to suffer. To cope, Eitri crafted new hands for himself, yet was still alone, with Nidavellir shutting down.[1]


Thor, Rocket Raccoon, and Groot traveled to Nidavellir to claim a new weapon in order to kill Thanos before he could gain the Infinity Gauntlet. Upon arrival, the trio discovered a somber Eitri, who agreed to help the trio kill Thanos for taking his hands and killing his people. Selecting the most powerful Uru mold, the group created the Stormbreaker, with Groot using his own arm as the handle for the weapon, as Eitri misplaced the original.[1]
