"Welcome to New Asgard, please drive slowly. Velkommen til Tønsberg.[1]"
―Welcome Plaque[src]

New Asgard is a city-state and enclave within the nation of Norway. Founded as the village of Tønsberg, it was visited by the Asgardians in ancient times, who left the Tesseract there for several centuries. Following the Snap, the surviving Asgardians and their allies relocated to Tønsberg and transformed the Norwegian village into the independent nation of New Asgard. In the aftermath of the Blip, New Asgard obtained diplomatic recognition from the United Nations.

Tønsberg 2

Tønsberg in 965 A.D.

Centuries ago, the Frost Giants of Jotunheim, led by their king Laufey, arrived to Tønsberg, planning to conquer Midgard, freezing everything in their path using the Casket of Ancient Winters to plunge the world in a new glacial period. However, the Asgardian army, led by Odin and aided by the Eternals, defended Midgard and engaged in a war against the Frost Giants, forcing them to abandon Earth and retreat to their own world. Years later, Odin brought the Tesseract to Tønsberg and elected to leave it in the care of Asgardian worshipers.[2]

Church Keeper and Johann Schmidt[src]

During World War II, Johann Schmidt led a HYDRA assault on Norway searching for the Tesseract. Following its trails until reaching a church full of Viking warriors entombed within its walls, Schmidt interrogated the Church Keeper, who tried to make Schmidt cease his search, claiming the Tesseract was a simple myth.

Schmidt, convinced of its existence as the most valuable object in Odin's Vault, located a fake replica inside one of the tombs, and threatened the Church Keeper to kill all the inhabitants of the village if he didn't help him locate the Tesseract. Schmidt then focused his attention at a sculptured mural of Yggdrasil, finding a hidden box behind a Nidhogg depiction in the mural with the actual Tesseract inside. The Church Keeper warned Schmidt that he wouldn't control the Tesseract's power, but Schmidt killed him and ordered his army to destroy Tønsberg.[3]

Rocket Raccoon and Hulk[src]

Following the Snap, Tønsberg was repopulated by the surviving Asgardians and refugees from Sakaar, who renamed the town to New Asgard. After killing Thanos, Thor took residence in a house with Korg and Miek, where he became bitter and a drunken overweight hermit. The Asgardians lived peacefully as fishermen at the docks, accepting the fact that their days of battles and glory were over.[4]

"Tønsberg, Norway. A real Christmas card of a town."
Howard Stark[src]

In an alternate universe, Johann Schmidt and a HYDRA batallion invaded Tonsberg in search of the Tesseract, as he wanted to use it to summon an interdimensional being. Schmidt ordered the door of a church he suspected to contain the Tesseract to be demolished as he arrived in his car.

He then entered the church and began regaling the church's keeper with stories about the Tesseract's power while his soldiers held the man at gunpoint. The keeper insisted that the Tesseract was simply a myth, but Schmidt found a secret compartment in a wall containing a box. He then opened the box and was basked in the Tesseract's blue hue, while the soldiers executed the keeper.[8]
