Price was a brilliant, if demented physicist, and built the Worldengine with the aid of Seth. He was also apparently well-versed in genetics, having created clones, and electronics, based on his warriors.
After feasting upon fly agaric mushrooms, Price had a vision of the Asgardian World-Ash Tree Yggdrasil. In this vision, the tree spoke to Price, and told him how after Ragnarok, a new race of humans would be born. Price wanted to see this, and set about to make this a reality. After Price was fired from the university where he had lectured, he used his severance pay to set about building his Worldengine, to trick Yggdrasil into thinking Ragnarok had already happened. With the aid of the Egyptian god of Death Seth, Price built the Worldengine, and staffed it with clones grown from the DNA of Thor and the Enchantress. Price also came to determine that knowledge was passed on by food, and turned to cannibalism, devouring his own wife.
Thor and the Enchantress found the Worldengine, and Price happily explained his plans to them, noting that it was too late for them to halt the Worldengine. However, when the new race of humanity was at last born, they died almost immediately because the atmosphere did not contain the ash it would have had Ragnarok truly happened. Price's clones turned on him and murdered him.
Price had Asgardian runes carved onto each of his teeth.
