At Odin's command, Heimdall rescued the artist, Jason Kimbal from a team of gun-happy loan-sharks led by a gangster known as Baker. Heimdall and another Asgardian Kamorr would escort Kimbal to their Asgardian ship, however they would unintentionally led him to the place where Thor was confronting Ego-Prime who was about to transform the world into another living planet like Ego. His energy was absorbed into Kimbal and two others, Carter Dyam and Chi Lo, transforming them into a new generation of gods. Jason Kimbal would become Genii. Dyam would become Bright Sword. Chi Lo would become Harvest. After the battle the three new Young Gods would get to met Odin and stay in Asgard for a time. The Warriors Three, Fandral, Volstagg, and Hogun would come to find the three Young Gods for their true purpose, but the six would be attacked by the great dragon Fafnir. The combined power of the Warriors and Young Gods would overwhelm the mythical beast, defeating it. Genii would join Bright Sword and Harvest to be assembled among 9 other selectively chosen humans to be offered to the Celestials as humanity's great potential. The group would collectively be known as the Young Gods.
