Major Story Arcs
Isis, her husband Osiris and her son, Horus were imprisoned for many years in a pyramid that lied deep beneath the Earth. It was her own brother, Seth that put her and her family there so that he may rule the other-dimensional city of Heliopolis without opposition. From within, they were eventually able to cause it to materialize on Earth in the Twentieth Century and Isis along with Osiris and Horus were able to use their powers to contact Odin, ruler of Asgard. Seth had said that the only way they would ever be free is if their ancestor Atum-Re returned to Earth, so the three captives made Odin believe that he was Atum-Re through the Ceremony of Rebirth. The son of Odin, the mighty Thor wanted his father to be released from their spell and agreed to travel to the city of Heliopolis to face Seth with them. On Heliopolis, Seth’s armies were defeated and he was cast out of the city leaving Osiris to reclaim his throne.
