"Field Trip" is the ninth episode of the first season of the Ultimate Spider-Man television series.

Synopsis

During a field trip to a museum, Phil Coulson informs the class of a tablet that originated from Asgard. Peter, however, hates field trips and recalls unpleasant memories as Ava, Luke, Danny, and Sam stare at the tablet. Danny translates the tablet, causing it to release a Frost Giant. Coulson quickly clears the room of civilians and the team change into their costumes. The team struggle to work together due to their different fighting styles contradicting one another. Eventually, they are saved by the arrival of Thor, whose arrogance prompts him to rebuff the young heroes' help. Thor uses Mjölnir to knock out the Frost Giant as Spider-Man and the team fight to tell Thor of their strong teamwork.

Thor leaves the conversation and spots an amulet around the Frost Giant's neck. However, Spider-Man warns him not to touch it since his spider-sense is going off. Thor's pride and arrogance proves his undoing as the mere touch of the amulet transforms him into a frog. Blaming his brother Loki, Thor decides to travel to Asgard by himself. Spider-Man persuades him to let him and his team help. Arriving in Asgard, the heroes are shocked to see it completely covered in ice and are ambushed by Frost Giants. One by one, they are each frozen and imprisoned.

Inside the palace, the five heroes are encased in ice while Loki has Mjölnir and Thor in separate green bubbles. Iron Fist looks for the cage's weak spot as Loki boasts about allying with the Frost Giants and using Thor's pride as his weakness, and that he will kill Odin once he manages to break open the doors to his room. Iron Fist and Power Man break the cage and the heroes attack. However, Loki and the Frost Giants prove too powerful, forcing the team and Thor to flee to the outskirts. Thor chides himself that a god should not run, but Spider-Man tells him that they had to or they would have been killed.

In order to defeat Loki, Thor takes them to a cave where Eitri, forger of Mjölnir, resides. Thor pleads for his assistance, but Eitri refuses, feeling underappreciated by Thor and others who only visit him to retrieve weapons and never say thank-you. At Spider-Man's insistence Thor reluctantly apologizes to Eitri and states that he was far better than he was credited. Pleased, Eitri agrees to aid the heroes.

Back in Asgard, Loki gloats in his victory as the door starts to crack, and Mjölnir spins in, revealing Thor. Unfazed, Loki exclaims he cannot be beaten, until the heroes arrive with new weapons, with the exception of Spider-Man. Each member of the team battles with their respective weapon while embracing and utilizing Eitri's advice. Spider-Man finally takes command and leads his team in defeating the Frost Giants. Loki opens the door, but Spider-Man blocks his path and tricks him into transforming Thor back to normal. Thor then grabs Loki, but the latter flees, swearing revenge on Spider-Man. Thor reassures the group that Odin is still alive and sleeping before taking them back to Earth. Thor declares them to be heroes and rewards them with a two-headed goat, which bites Spider-Man's hand.
