Volstagg is one of the warriors who accompany Thor to Jotunheim after the Frost Giants' attempted robbery of the Casket of Ancient Winters. Volstagg and others traveled to Jotunheim, even though they thought it was a bad idea. Here, they fought against Jotuns, who quickly surpassed in number and power. Fortunately for them, they were saved by Odin.
He watched as the all-father vanished Thor and send him to Earth. Days later and after Odin falls into Odinsleep, Volstagg and his friends asked Loki to forgive Thor and allowed him to return from his exile. Loki refused this request since for him that would be the wish of his father. As Loki refused, Volstagg and the others Warriors three and Sif traveled to Midgard, even though they knew that it could cause their banishment. Here, they revealed to Thor that his father was not dead, only sleeping, finding out that Loki was behind all this.
