History: (Avengers VI#9) - When dimensional native Hecla and Thor from Earth's dimension grew closer to a legendary device said to be able to transport others to their perceived home, two "crystal monsters" attacked Hecla and Thor. Having no prior knowledge of such creatures, Hecla nonetheless yelled for Thor to save herself as he attempted to hold the creatures off. When Hecla injured his arm, Thor grabbed one of the "crystal monsters" by its tail and swung it into the other "crystal monster," impaling them both on their own crystalline forms. Hecla and Thor then continued on their way.
