The Elf with a Gun was an entity of unknown origin who used a variety of bizarre disguises to murder seemingly random people for no apparent reason over a period of several months. His path almost crossed that of the Defenders a few times, but they never actually met him or learned of his activities. He was first seen in a trailer park in California where he knocked on the door of Tom and Linda Pritchett and presumably killed them both.[1]. The Elf (whose name was posthumously revealed to be Melf) was eventually run over by a truck before his motives could be established. Later, his nephew Relf apparently carried on his mission.

A subsequent claim that the Elves were agents of the alien Tribunals and that Melf's murders were part of an elaborate scheme to restore the cosmic balance and stop a universal catastrophe was eventually revealed to be a hoax. As yet, the truth about the Elf with a Gun remains a mystery.
