Fandral is one of a trio of Asgardians adventurers known as the Warriors Three, and is a friend of Thor. He was present when the jotuns infiltrated the vaults while most of Asgard was preoccupied with a ceremony naming Thor as heir to Asgard's throne. When Thor becomes enraged by the interruption, Fandral readily agrees to accompany him to Jotunheim to revenge against the jotuns' aggression. Fandral gets injured during a battle against the Giants. Later, when Odin falls into Odinsleep and Loki becomes the king Fandral, Sif, and the rest of the Warriors Three suspect Loki's motives and decide to get Thor back to Asgard from Midgard, where he has been exiled until he learns humilation. The group fights against the Destroyer that was controlled by Loki, and then return to Asgard.
