Dark Elves

The souls of the Dark Elves

The Dark Elves were a race of evil beings from the realm known as Svartalfheim.

Their leader was Malekith the Accursed.


Ages ago, war broke out between the Dark Elves and the Frost Giants of Jotunheim. The war resulted in the Frost Giants annihilating the Dark Elves, including Malekith, leaving Svartlfheim in ruins and filled with the remains and tortured souls of fallen Dark Elves.

On Midgard, Malekith had returned as a half-alive and half-dead Dark Elf. He aimed to find the Casket of Ancient Winters, in the hopes of using it to wipe out humanity and resurrect his people, whilst making Midgard their new home. But his plans were foiled by Iron Man, Thor, and Black Panther.

During a battle between Wonder Man and Black Panther, the Norn stone was activated along with all of the other stones causing all creatures from all realms to emerge including the Dark Elves.

On Svartalfheim, Black Panther had been pulled into their realm after destroying the stone. As he examined their remains, he was chased by a swarm of Dark Elven souls. After a long chase, he finally found his way out through the well-like portal which led to Alfheim where he bumped into Faradei and Hawkeye.
