The Norwegian superhero series revolves around Magne a teenager who has moved to the town of Edda along with his mother Laurits Seier and brother Turid Seier. The town has a mysterious tone to it and the weather seems to be unpredictable such as warm winters, heavy downpours and melting ice. Megne realizes that he has supernatural abilities to predict weather patterns. Some people of the town are of the opinion that these weather changes are a sign of the “Ragnarok” which means apocalypse in Norweigne Norse mythology. Ragnarok literally means fate of the Gods.
In this mysterious town Megne meets an activist named Isolde. She tells him about the poisonous levels of cadmium in the town’s water system and that a rich family named Jutuls are to be blamed for it. Jutuls are a family of evil giants. They kill Isolde when she tries to uncover their dastardly motives and make it look like an accident.
From here the show takes a drastic turn in the life of Megne as now he has a motive to bring Isolde’s criminals to justice. He also realizes that he is the manifestation of Thor: the God of thunder.
The climax of the first season displayed a violent faceoff between Vidar Jutuls and Megne, with Megne summoning lightening from Thor which strikes him and Vidar leaving Megne unconscious and a dead Vidar.
