While Magnus and his friends are being outmatched by the earth giants, Vidar along with Thor and Heimdall, arrived in time to help them defeat the giants. Later, after the battle, he is shown tending to the wounded. At the celebration at Hotel Valhalla, he is seen conversing with Hearthstone in a sign language Magnus didn't understand.
