That's who you are. The one who must fight evil at any cost.
-Wotan Wagner to Magne

Magne Seier (portrayed by David Stakston) is the main protagonist in the Netflix Original Series Ragnarok.

He is the reincarnation of Thor, the god of thunder, and he starts the fight against the giants who are destroying the world.

On his journey, more reincarnated gods join him in the fight.

Biography[]

Magne was born and spent some of his early childhood in Edda. When his father Asbjørn died in a bicycle accident, he, his mother Turid and his brother Laurits moved away. Magne grew up into a shy teenager, who was still trying to overcome his father's absence. But his life changed completely when he returned to his hometown, along with his family.

Upon his arrival, Magne helps an old man on a electric scooter to switch the chair back on. An old lady who sees the boy helping the man approaches, she rubs her hand over his forehead and in this way activates the powers of the thunder god Thor within the boy.[1]

He notices changes in himself since he arrived in Edda, most notably that he now possess superhuman strength and sharper senses. One night, after getting drunk by the Jutuls, Magne goes to wash his face, and he sees himself as Thor in the mirror. Which confirms he really is Thor, reborn. But Magne soon realizes that he isn’t the only one with superhuman abilities.

From there, Magne ends up engaging in a battle against the giants, still present on earth, while trying to adapt to the new skills he has acquired.

In the series[]

Season 1[]

As the Seiers drive into Edda, their car gets stuck behind an old man on an electric scooter in the middle of the road, who comes to a halt trying to turn right. Magne decides to get out of the car and tries to help the old man. While he is in the process of helping him, an old woman comes out of a hair salon and sees Magne. She approaches him, telling him that he is a good boy, and looks up at him intensely before touching his forehead. A change flickers through his eyes. This confuses Magne and makes him feel awkward, when he gets back in the car, he tries to roll up the car window, only succeeding in breaking the door handle. He then has the odd sense that it is about to rain, which his mother challenges, only for rain to suddenly start to pour down.

Once they get to their new home, Laurits complains that they will be living beside a drug dealer. Magne pays attention to a brochure lying by their mailbox, as he picks it up to try to read what it says, his vision becomes blurry and he takes his glasses off to discover he can see perfectly.

Magne and Laurits arrive at the local high school Edda Secondary School to attend. They are put in front of the class and introduced by Erik, their history teacher. He asks them to look for an available seat next to a student named Gry, who seems to be of Magne's interest, but in an act of mischief, Laurits steals the seat and Magne ends up sitting next to green advocate Isolde, whom he becomes friends with.

Isolde later dies when she appears to paraglide into power lines. That rainy night, a distraught Magne holds his father's sledge hammer as lightning fills the sky. He throws the hammer and it disappears into the clouds.

As the high school mourns Isolde's death, Magne suspects it was not an accident. His enquiries begin to disturb the Jutul's. He learns the hammer he threw went over 1500 metres and embedded itself in Vidar Jutul's car.

Magne learns that he can run superhumanly fast, and is uninjured when he's hit by a snowplow traveling 50 km/h. The Jutuls invite him to dinner and after drinking mead, he realizes the family is not as they seem, such as mother Ran Jutul holds him to a standstill, then defeats him at arm-wrestling, after Magne looked at her and saw her as an old woman. When he goes to the bathroom to wash his face, he looks in the mirror, and he sees himself as a bearded warrior.

Magne goes jogging the next morning, and decides to punch a tree to test his strength. When he does, his hands do not get hurt and he punches the tree some more, until his last punch breaks down the tree. He later looks up on the internet about mead in Norse mythology. He then learns about the old gods, and that his powers were awakened by the old woman. He goes to her at the grocery store and she tells him everything.

Magne continues Isolde's work in investigating the Jutuls and their role in Edda's water pollution problem while learning more about his abilities and evading the increasingly suspicious Jutuls. Magne and the Jutul's son, Fjor, are both romantically interested in Gry, who seems to care about both. On a school trip up the mountains Magne confesses his love for Gry but she chooses to go off with Fjor, seemingly embarrassed at Magne's admission.

After seeing Vidar cutting up raw reindeer meat, Magne realizes that it matches the same blood from Isolde's jacket at the time of her death. Magne then deduces that Vidar was behind Isolde's death all along, and warns him that he will not get away with it. After Magne follows Fjor and Gry, Vidar sends Trym, the hellhound, to kill him. However, Trym proves to be no match for Magne, who kills him.

Magne is punished for killing Trym, as no one else knows of the strange happenings and see him only as a troubled boy, and when he proposes to submit an assignment critical of Jutul Industries, he is forced to return Isolde's laptop to Erik, who had given it to him. To make amends, Erik gives Magne Isolde's mobile phone, which he found high on the mountain. Magne succeeds in unlocking it and finds the incriminating photos Isolde had taken of the cavern in the mountains. He goes up the mountain and discovers 2,500 barrels belonging to Jutul Industries leaking toxic waste. Magne reports the existence of the barrel store to the police but when they go to find them the toxic barrels have disappeared (as the police had pre-notified the Jutuls of the visit). Magne is not taken seriously by the police and the school authorities and he is excluded from the school subject to psychological evaluation.

Magne is diagnosed as a paranoid schizophrenic by the psychiatrist and is prescribed antipsychotic drugs, which he refuses to take. Fjor informs Magne that he was correct about the toxic barrels from Jutul Industries, and reveals that they are going to be shipped away from Edda. Someone, presumably Magne, dumps some toxic barrels on the police station steps and they begin an investigation in spite of Vidar's attempts to intimidate the police chief. Fjor takes Gry to an abandoned warehouse and starts to attack her, but Magne intervenes and saves her life. Vidar appears, identifies Magne as Thor and attacks him. Before he does, Magne warns Fjor and Gry to run.

Magne is almost overcome by Vidar, but he calls up lightning and, directing a bolt from the sky, uses it to strike Vidar, presumably killing him. Magne is hurt by the lightning as well, but it appears that he survived the strike, as just before the screen fades, he closes his hand into a fist.

Season 2[]

The second season picks up right where the first season left off, with Magne calling up the lighting bolt from the sky to strike Vidar, which ended up hurting him as well, though nobody was killed. Wenche was there watching them fight and then flew away, turning into an eagle. Magne runs up to the mountains seeking for answers from Wenche, she takes him into a different realm where Magne finds out that he as to wait for the battle, and that he is not alone. He has to gather up the other gods. Magne asks Laurits to be on his side on the great battle, but Laurits still finds it hard to believe Magne. Magne finds his first ally Iman (who is the embodiment of Freyja) to fight the giants.

One night, Magne and Laurits sneak into the Jutulheim to forge Mjölnir in what they mistakenly think is the eternal fire in the living room. They are caught by Vidar, and Laurits is labelled as a traitor. Magne, Laurits, and Iman meet Odin. Later, when Vidar and Laurits go to Jutulheim, Magne follows. When Vidar was about to kill Laurits, Magne interferes. Magne and Vidar fight, and Vidar dies from being impaled by his own axe.

Magne regrets killing Vidar as it alienated Laurits, who doesn't believe that Vidar was going to kill him. Magne, disheartened, drops out of the fight and leaves his hammer to Odin. Iman tries to get Magne to join the fight again, but Magne refuses. In the mountains, Magne begs the heavens to take his powers, and during Vidar's funeral, he does the same.

Magne finds out that his prayers worked and he lost his powers, he was relieved. When Magne hears from his mom that Fjor fired her because of Laurits, he got furious and tried to antagonize Fjor. But he didn't have any powers anymore, leading Fjor to knock him down. Magne turns back to Odin asking for his powers back but he wasn't welcome anymore as Iman had Harry in his place. Magne tries to stop thinking about it, but he couldn't ignore the fact that his team was using their powers selfishly. Magne again tried to talk to Odin and asks him if there's a way to do this without killing anyone, but he tells him there is no other way which really frustrates him. When Ran tries to harm Laurits at home, Magne steps in trying to defend his brother, but without his powers he can't do anything. That's when he decides to do whatever it takes to win the battle and goes back to Odin to actually ask for his powers back and accepts that he would do whatever is necessary. Odin tells him that his greatest weapon, Mjölnir, is the only way by which he can stand a chance against the Giants. Magne decides to lie to Laurits for the sake of the world to get the key of Jutulheim, which Saxa gave to him.

Magne, Wotan, Iman and Harry, accompanied by Halvor, set out to Jutul Industries. Magne tricks Laurits into giving him the key to unlock the old warehouse where the ancient forge was located. Wotan distracts the guards while the others sneak into the warehouse. The guards inform Fjor and he sets out to the old warehouse. In the Warehouse, Iman keeps guard while Magne and Harry, along with Halvor manage to locate the ancient forge and start crafting Mjölnir. Meanwhile, Iman and Harry engage in a fight with Fjor who overpowers them and severely injures Harry. They manage to craft Mjölnir and Magne returns home while the others get caught. As a result, Iman and Halvor are fired from the hospital. Magne tries throwing the hammer, but his powers don't return. Later, Magne notices the pet in Laurits' room. Then, storms rage in the skies again, as the news of the Jutuls' victory enrages Magne, who discovers that it was lightning that created Thor. As he takes his hammer, he is confronted by Laurits, who realizes that Magne lied to him. Magne leaves anyway and awakens the hammer, causing his powers to return. Magne goes to Jutulheim to face Fjor, only to find an injured Saxa there. Saxa offers to help Magne and they end up having intimate intercourse. Later, as the Jutuls are about to leave, after beating up Laurits, Magne appears in front of them and attacks them with Mjölnir, but they escape.

Personality[]

Magne is polite, quiet and a good boy. He is also straightforward and doesn't keep secrets. This is revealed when he casually reveals his love for Gry Isungset in front of his peers.[2] He believes in what is right and just.

Appearance[]

Magne is tall, blonde, has blue eyes, and he originally wore glasses until his sight got better, thanks to his true nature being unlocked.

Family[]

Magne's father, Asbjørn died in an accident when he was a young child. His mother raised him and his brother Laurits.

Relationships[]

Thor[]

Magne is the reincarnation of the thunder god Thor. He has seen pictures and illustrations of Thor in books and on the internet. Magne has only been able to physically see Thor once in the mirror one night when he was drunk from drinking mead. The two of them have a strong physical resemblance to each other. They both believe in the same ideas of justice, righteousness, and protecting humanity from harm. As Thor's reincarnation, Magne has all of his godly powers and abilities, such as, weather and lightning manipulation. He also has Thor's hammer, Mjölnir, which helps him control his powers (just like with Thor).

Wotan Wagner[]

In the first season, Magne and Wotan had only a passing friendship. But, as of the second season, they now have a "father/son" relationship. Seeing as how they are the reincarnations of Thor and Odin. After the passing of Wenche, Magne has turned to Wotan for help and guidance.

Iman Reza[]

Magne and Iman are both friends and reincarnated gods. She is the reincarnation of the goddess, Freyja.

Harry[]

Harry is a friend of both Magne and Iman, a fellow god reincarnation. As Magne is the reincarnation of Thor (god of thunder), Harry is the reincarnation of Týr (god of war).

Wenche[]

Wenche was a mysterious woman who worked at the local supermarket, and provided Magne with his powers. She also helped Magne when he was feeling down. Magne was heartbroken when he saw her get killed by Ran Jutul.

Halvor Lange[]

TBA

Isolde Eidsvoll[]

Magne was assigned to sit next to Isolde after his brother took the seat next to Gry.

Gry Isungset[]

Gry and Magne became friends while they were working together with Isolde on a group project for their class. Gry was a reluctant love interest for both Magne and Fjor. She was significantly less reluctant towards Fjor, and more reluctant towards Magne. But she did care about him a great deal, as shown when she gave him a hug when she heard about him being kicked out of school on false charges. She and Magne share a great belief in what's right and what's wrong. Like Magne, Gry cares about the community and she knows it's being polluted by Jutul Industries A/S. But after her father died, she and her mother moved away from Edda. She did give Magne one last hug goodbye before she left.

Erik Eidsvoll[]

Erik is Magne's teacher at Edda Secondary School. They have a good and respectable relationship with each other, especially after the death of Isolde. Even though Erik doesn't know Magne is Thor and the Jutuls are giants, and probably wouldn't believe it if he did, he saw Magne as a troubled young man who needed help, even if he didn't want it. Later though, he realizes that Magne was right and apologizes to him.

Signy[]

Magne and Signy have a love interest for each other. Unlike Gry, Signy is a lot less reluctant towards Magne, and more straightforward with him. They have a great connection towards each other, and together they believe in right from wrong. She even supports Magne in protesting against Jutul Industries A/S for polluting the community's water supply. In the sixth episode of season 2, Signy gives Magne a kiss.

Laurits Seier[]

Laurits can be found constantly teasing his older brother and usually putting him in more negative than positive light around others. Magne often doesn't express any significant reactions to the teasing - and also isn't afraid to say something back. When these two don't fight, they care for each other and keep good sibling relations.

Even though Laurits doesn't stop himself from many of these, often cruel, kind of actions, even goes as far as sending Magne a text message indicating that their mother's condition is concerning and make him come all the way down the mountain, as a joke - which results in Magne leaving Isolde alone up there. However, if there's someone else to give his brother a hard time - Laurits is ready to stand by Magne. In the last episode, upon hearing the school headmistress bad mouthing Magne, Laurits asks her a moment later if there's a chance for him to get the student speech on May 17th - just so he can, in a joking way, point out wrongness about her and her family's actions.

Turid Seier[]

Magne has a hard relationship with his mother, Turid.

Vidar Jutul[]

Vidar and Magne were sworn enemies, until Magne killed Vidar by impaling him with his own axe.

Fjor Jutul[]

Like with Vidar, Magne is sworn enemies with Fjor.

Ran Jutul[]

Ran desires more than anything to kill Magne and his family. Since she murdered Wenche, Magne hates her more than ever.

Saxa Jutul[]

Enemy and one time sex partner. Even though they are enemies, Saxa has at least some level of attraction towards Magne, culminating in them sleeping together in the later half of season 2. But Magne rejects her.

Powers and Abilities[]

Magne possesses all of Thor's powers and abilities, like:

  • Super-Strength: Magne has super strength, enabling him for example to move a car by himself, break down a tree with his fists, and also throw a hammer over 1537 metres. In episode 1 of season 2 he effortlessly bend a metal baseball bat.
  • Super-Durability: Magne has the ability to withstand unnaturally high levels of physical harm.
  • Super-Speed: Magne can run 100 meters in seven seconds, faster than the world record.
  • Enhanced Senses: Magne has extremely accurate senses, allowing him to see, hear, smell, taste, and feel better than an average being.
  • Nigh-Invulnerability: When Magne is hit by a snowplow, the doctors couldn't find a single injury.
  • Accelerated-Healing Factor: Magne gets bitten by Trym, but the wound on his arm heals in a matter of minutes.
  • Weather Manipulation: While he doesn't control it purposefully and it is instead fueled by strong emotions, Magne can make it rain and summon a thunderstorm with his powers. He also can predict the weather.
    • Electricity Manipulation: Magne can use both his hands and the hammer Mjölnir to summon, create, shape and manipulate electricity, such as lightning.
  • Immortality: Because he is the reincarnation of Thor, it is possible Magne can be immortal, and never die.

Equipment[]

Mjölnir[]

As Thor's reincarnation, Magne wields the thunder-god's hammer Mjölnir, the world's most powerful weapon. Like Thor, Magne uses the hammer to defeat the giants. When he throws the hammer, it always returns to his hand.

Trivia[]

  • Magne is neurodiverse, but in what way is never specified. Most likely he is autistic. He is shown to have had problems with aggression in the past and uses a stim toy to focus. The only clear diagnosis we hear is that he has dyslexia.
  • Interestingly, the name given to the character refers to Thor's son, Magni. According to mythology, Magni is the result of a relationship between Thor and the giant Járnsaxa.
  • His Super Empowering probably doesn't count, but in his climactic fight with Vidar at the end of Season One, Magne summons lightning to end the fight. At the start of Season Two, Vidar explicitly notes this is a sign Magne is close to attaining his true power as Thor, and has become much more dangerous (especially since he did it without his hammer). Shortly after, Magne's strength and muscle mass increase dramatically, such that by the middle of Season Two, his rematch with Vidar is far more even.
