(Free Comic Book Day 2011 (Thor the Mighty Avenger)#1
(fb) - BTS) - King Arthur ruled England from Camelot and survived
several assassination attempts. His personal wizard Merlin was secretly
imprisoned by Asgardian trickster god Loki, who then pretended to be
Merlin after "regenerating."
(Free Comic Book Day 2011 (Thor the Mighty
Avenger)#1) - Camelot knight Sir Gawain returned after finding the Holy
Grail, and King Arthur and Loki escorted him through the woods to
Camelot. The trio came across heroes Thor and Captain America, who had
been pulled through time by the desperate Merlin. The two heroes had
knocked out several assassins. In gratitude, King Arthur asked the two
newcomers to ride with them to Camelot. Keen to get the powerful Holy
Grail for himself, Loki cast a magical hydra-dragon that severely
injured King Arthur and Sir Gawain. Loki was defeated and vanished,
while the real Merlin reappeared and restored King Arthur and Gawain to
full health. The wizard then sent Thor and Captain America back to
their original times. King Arthur ensured the two heroes' deeds would
be remembered in art; the tattered tapestry piece was found centuries
later by Jane Foster, but Captain America's flag motif made her think
it was a fake artifact.

Another instance of omniversal Merlin kidnapping heroes from across time to suit his own ends?
that the FCBD 2011 issue is part of this universe (to go after issue 8)
and it was included in the compendium collecting all of this Thor the
Mighty Avenger series.
Profile by Grendel Prime.
King Arthur of Earth-10091 has no known connections to:
Sir Gawain was a knight of Camelot who had spent many
years searching for the Holy Grail. Having found it, he returned to
England and was welcomed by King Arthur and Loki (masquerading as
Merlin). Gawain carried a jewel-encrusted decoy grail to distract
would-be thieves from the actual basic goblet. Loki coveted the power
of the Grail, but Captain America and Thor's sudden appearance thwarted
assassins' attempt on Arthur and Gawain, so Loki unleashed a magical
dragon, severely injuring the two Camelot knights. Later, with the true
Merlin returned and Loki banished, Merlin restored both Arthur and
Gawain to full health.
