History

Exile of Hela

"Before my father died, he told me I had a half-sister that he imprisoned in Hel."
Thor to the Guardians of the Galaxy[src]

Valkyrie arrive on Hel to stop Hela

Thousands of years ago, Odin banished his daughter Hela from Asgard and imprisoned her in Hel after a failed coup attempt..[1] Hela later attempted to escape, prompting Odin to send the Valkyrie to stop her. She successfully overpowered the warriors, killing all but one, Brunnhilde. Odin intervened before Hela could escape, defeating her and returning her to her prison, where she remained until Odin's death.[1]

Hela's Freedom

Hela as she finally escapes Hel after millennia

After the death of Odin, his power over Hela's imprisonment waned until there was no force keeping her at bay. She stepped out of a portal-like gateway soon after, musing that she would have liked to see her father die.[1]
