Role in the game
He is an unlockable character in one of the "Deadpool" bonus missions called "Bro-tunheim", which requires 200 gold bricks to enter.
Malekith the Accursed is the king of the Dark Elves from the Norse mythological realm of Svartalfheim and an enemy of Thor and Asgard. Malekith once struck a bargain with Loki on behalf of Surtur, king of the Fire Demons of Muspelheim, in which he schemed to mind-control numerous humans on Midgard as part of a plot to retrieve the Casket of Ancient Winters. Malekith pitted his warrior Algrim against Thor and consequently nearly sent the former to his demise. Thor then defeated Malekith and held him prisoner in Asgard. Malekith escaped but was seemingly killed by a revived and mutated Algrim, known as Kurse. Mysteriously resurrected, Malekith returned to Svartalfheim and initiated a massive purge of all Dark Elves unwilling to consent to his rule. Thor stopped and nearly killed him, but Malekith has once more become ruler of the Dark Elves.
