Balder the Brave was one of the Asgardians, an extra-dimensional race of beings once worshiped by the Vikings and Germans, as well as younger brother and close friend to Thor . Due to prophecies that Balder's death would help trigger the coming of Ragnarok , the destruction of Asgard and its inhabitants, Odin , ruler of Asgard, commanded his wife Frigga to make Balder invulnerable to harm.

Frigga cast spells that would protect Balder form harm by any living or inanimate thing while he was in the Asgardian dimension; however, Balder remained vulnerable to mistletoe. Loki , the god of mischief, learned of the prophecies and vulnerability, and tricked the blind god Hoder into firing an arrow tipped with mistletoe wood at Balder. Odin prevented Balder from actually dying.

Review/plot:
In 1985, the mini-series was still a relatively new and rare thing. I don't know how it was decided which characters would get a series, but considering some of the choices (Jack of Hearts, Rocket Raccoon, Gargoyle) i guess it's not too weird for Balder the Brave to get his own; maybe Marvel was testing the possibility of a Thor spin-off title in the wake of Simonson's success.
