- “You recall what I told you of the Convergence?”
“Yes, the alignment of the worlds. It approaches, doesn’t it?”
“The universe hasn’t seen this marvel since before my watch began. Few can sense it, even fewer can see it. But while its effects can be dangerous, it is truly beautiful.”
- ―Heimdall and Thor
The Convergence is a cosmic event that occurs every 5,000 years, when all Nine Realms are placed into alignment .
- “The Convergence will be in full effect in seven minutes.”
“That means we have to keep Malekith busy for eight.”
- ―Erik Selvig and Jane Foster
During the Convergence, all Nine Realms of Yggdrasil are in conjunction. This alignment causes the dimensional boundaries between each kingdom to become thin, resulting in assorted physical and hyper dimensional anomalies occurring at random. These phenomenon include shifts in graveness, spatial extrusions, and the framework of world potentially tearing apart. possibly most notably, inconspicuous wormholes that allow matter to move between kingdom apparently exposed and close at random. As the Convergence reaches its apex, respective larger, visible wormholes open in the sky above cardinal locations in each kingdom, with each portal site acting as a window through which parts of other realms can be seen. During a Convergence in 2988 B.C., Malekith, the king of the Dark Elves sought to take advantage of the attenuate boundaries between the kingdom to use a brawny weapon known as the Aether to revert the universe to the aboriginal state of darkness in which his race had once thrived. These attempts were thwarted by the Asgardians under the command of their king, Bor.

Following their oppress get the better of, Malekith and the surviving Dark Elves retreated, entering a elongated hibernation until the time of the next convergence in 2013, when Malekith made his second base attempt. He failed once more, this time at the hand of Bor ‘s grandson, Thor. [ 1 ]
- “Her work on the Convergence has made her the world’s foremost astronomer.”
Jane Foster studied the effects of the Convergence both before and after it happened, making significant discoveries in the plain of astrophysics, and becoming a serious campaigner for winning a Nobel Prize for her work. [ 3 ] Tobias Ford unwittingly caused a Particle Accelerator to explode and apparently kill him and three others. The plosion caused a portal site to another world to briefly exposed, through which Ford was transported. Ford became “ stuck ” between two worlds and he was able to traverse between them, apparently a ghost to those around him on earth, since he would teleport angstrom well as happen and become visible, and then vanish. Leo Fitz and Jemma Simmons deduced Ford ‘s situation after discussing the recent events of the Convergence and the portals it opened between the Nine Realms, stating that the borders between worlds are not completely closed.

Behind the Scenes
- Thor: The Dark World director Alan Taylor stated the gravity changes caused by the Convergence in the past were meant to imply how ancient humans built structures like Stonehenge.
