- You wanted the Dark Elves to stand together, remember? And so they have. Who do you think they would elect? A peacemaker? Have you met my people before?
- -- Malekith src
Malekith struck an alliance with Loki on behalf of the fire demon Surtur. He took control of a number of Earth humans using special food of the faerie provided by Hela. Malekith then killed Eric Willis, guardian of the Casket of Ancient Winters, after learning its location.
As Master of the Hounds, Malekith hunted down Roger Willis, Eric's son and new guardian of the Casket. Malekith battled Thor and kidnapped Lorelei. Using Lorelei as bait, Malekith forced Thor to battle Algrim the Strong, one of his Dark Elf followers, then attempted to destroy both combatants by plunging them into a pool of magma. He then captured the Casket of Ancient Winters from Roger Willis.
Malekith was ultimately defeated by Thor, but not before he destroyed the Casket of Ancient Winters, releasing magical frigid force all over the Earth. Malekith was then brought as a captive by Thor to Asgard. Malekith later disguised Loki as himself to take his place in the dungeon, while he disguised himself as Balder, who was about to be crowned ruler of Asgard. Kurse, the being formerly known as Algrim, saw through Malekith's disguise when he reached Asgard City. Kurse then broke Malekith's neck, apparently slaying him. Years later, Malekith was revealed to be alive once again.
Years later, he was broken out of hel by a group of Dark Elves loyal to him and returned to Svartalfheim, with only one of them, Scumtounge, surviving, however, after seeing that his people has grown weak and won't accept him as their ruler, he and his followers began hunting the other Dark Elves to make them strong again, starting in a village in Svartalfheim, they massacrated all Dark Elves except for the woman Wariza. Thor and the Warriors Three arrived in the village, and Malekit told them his intensions of killing all Dark Elves who won't follow him before leaving. He began hunting Dark Elves in all Realms, while in Jotunheim, he was confronted by the Leage of Realms which included Thor and Wariza, however, he was prepeared for them and manage to kill Oggy the Giant. Thor almost killed Malekit until he revealed he had Frost Giants protecting him and left. He then showed up on Earth were a Council of Dark Elves come together to choose their next ruler. Using a parasite inside Thor, he battle him and the other Leage of Realms members until the council intervened and declared that they have choose Malekith as their ruler. When the ceremony was held, Frigga told Malekith that he still needed to serve his sentence, but Wariza volunteered to serve it for him since that way there will be less bloodshed. Malekith then names Scumtounge his senator in the congress of worlds. Later, on Muspelheim he and a Frost Giant made their way to speak to the Fire Demons about a Leage of their own.
Rings of the Mandarin
Malekith was chosen to be the host of Mandarin's Spectral Ring after each of the villain's ring started searching for hosts following their owner's death. The ring attempted to influence Malekith into helping it, but Malekith overcame the ring's attempt to manipulate him and took it against its will. Malekith later begun looking for the other rings, and in Earth took two more rings from Lord Remaker, by beheading him, and Red Peril, by cutting her hands, respectively. He later briefly arrived to New York in order to kill and take Lightning Conductor's ring.
Powers and AbilitiesEdit
Malekith possessed various superhuman attributes, some of which are common to his race.
Superhuman Strength: Malekith, like all Dark Elves, possesses superhuman strength. Ordinarily, Malekith possesses sufficient strength to lift about 10 tons without supplementing his strength with his other powers. However, while using his other powers, he is able to increase his strength to the point where he can lift up to 90 tons.
Superhuman Speed: Malekith can run and move at speeds that are beyond the physical limits of even the finest human athlete.
Superhuman Stamina: Malekith's musculature produces considerably less fatigue toxins during physical activity than the musculature of an ordinary human. He can physically exert himself at peak capacity for up to 24 hours before the build up of fatigue toxins in his blood begins to impair him.
Superhuman Durability: Malekith's body is tougher and much more resistant to physical injury than the body of a human. Malekith can withstand powerful impact forces, exposure to temperature and pressure extremes, falls from great heights, and powerful energy blasts without being injured.
Superhuman Agility: Malekith's agility, balance, and bodily coordination are enhanced to levels that are beyond the natural physical limits of the finest human athlete.
Superhuman Reflexes: Malekith's reflexes are similarly enhanced and are superior to those of the fineat human athlete.
Extended Longevity: Malekith, like all Dark Elves, possesses a greatly extended lifespan and ages at a much slower pace than humans. He is also immune to the effects of all known Earthly diseases and infections.
Regenerative Healing Factor: In spite his his body's increased durability, it is possible to injure him. However, Malekith's metabolism enables him to repair damaged bodily tissues much faster and more extensively than a human is capable of. The limits of Malekith's natural healing abilities aren't known, but it is believed that he isn't able to regenerate missing limbs or organs without magical assistance.
Magical Energy Manipulation: Malekith can manipulate great amounts of mystical energy for a number of purposes. Malekith has been known to often use his mysical powers to alter his shape and appearance. He can even use this ability to transform himself into a mist-like substance, allowing him to fly through the air over great distances. He is also capable of using this same energy to teleport himself across great distances, including between dimensional barriers. Malekith can also generate powerful blasts of concussive energy for destructive purposes. It is also believed that Malekith can use this mystical energy to increase most, if not all, of his superhuman physical attributes temporarily. He has used it to increase his physical strength and, since he was believed to have been killed by Kurse after having his neck broken, it is believed that he used his knowledge of sorcery beforehand to increase the limits of his natural healing abilities and for the purpose of appearing to be dead.
Mandarin's Rings: With the rings of the Mandarin he possesses, Malekith can access to the following abilities:
- Matter-Rearrangement: Malekith can manipulate the atomic and molecular structures of matter. It cannot transmute elements or affect objects encased in force or energy fields.
- Poison Gas: Malekith may transform the surrounding air into a Toxic gas.
- Solidify Gas: Malekith may solidify the air around opponents, encasing them in blocks of cement-like material.

- Electro-Blast: Malekith can project blasts of electrical energy.
|* Teleportation; Enhanced Strength in enhanced form|
AbilitiesThough he generally avoids it, Malekith is a moderately skilled hand to hand combatant. He is also a talented and powerful sorcerer.
Like all members of his race, Malekith has demonstrated a significant vulnerability to iron. For example, his mysical powers are useless against objects composed of iron. Also, being struck by an object made of iron, or even holding an iron object, can cause him great physical pain and injury whereas a similarly durable and powerful metal might cause him no discomfort at all.
- Hunting Horn of Faerie: Malekith uses the Hunting Horn of Faerie to summon the Wild Hunt when he wants to track someone down.
