Respect Malekith the Accursed

No Caption Provided

"Have you met my people before? Dark Elves aren't weak little children, locking for a mother to love and cuddle us. We only follow the leaders we fear. And as for now... Svartalfheim fears no one more than me."

Mobility

"War is the fire that forges elves' souls, so long as Malekith lives there will always be war... for without war, what am I?"

Ability to travel incredible distances both in and out of combat is arguably one of Malekith' greatest assets. Dark Elves in general were said to vanish in shadow at will but as their king and the most renowned member of his race, Malekith collected quite few feats:

Teleportation

Malekith' teleportation is quite fast and so he consistently uses it in combat to evade a strike. When Iron Man forced him to retreat by using dark elves' kryptonite (Iron), dark elf could instantly teleport out of the fight:

Not long after he did it again to escape from Mandarins in spectacular fashion:

No Caption Provided

Except retreating and overall maneuverability, Malekith can use his teleportation to launch a surprise attack as seen when he used it to murder one of the new Mandarins:

No Caption Provided

Loki stated that dark elves are able to vanish in shadow and move anywhere in the entire universe:

No Caption Provided

Also disappears before an Asgardian can strike him. He does that once again, this time against Thor:

No Caption Provided

As mentioned before fighting dark elf in shadow is a bad idea, really really really bad idea:

No Caption Provided

Not only Malekith can teleport anywhere, in darkness he is fast enough to slash Thor before the latter had the chance to realize what's going on.

No Caption Provided

Flight

Despite the fact that he can utilize teleportation in combat, it's not his only source of mobility. Malekith was often seen soaring through the air:

No Caption Provided

He can do that quite casually and as a result he can perfectly control tempo of the fight, Malekith attacks and retreats whenever he wants.

No Caption Provided

It also lessen his body and makes him harder to hit:

Speed and Reaction Time

Being Thor' villain already put him on certain speed level but Malekith has the feats to prove his swiftness:

No Caption Provided

Dark Elves is not only fast enough to react to Mjolnir but also instantly disappear. He once again replicate similar feat when he remove Thor' hammer from the battlefield by opening portal after the God of Thunder has already thrown his precious weapon:

No Caption Provided

Last but not least, dodges hammer blow and open casket of ancient winters before Thor can strike again:

No Caption Provided

Phasing

As if all those abilities aren't enough, Malekith displayed ability to phase through solid objects.

No Caption Provided

He can use it in combat with equal efficiency as seen when he effortlessly phased through Minotaur' attack:

No Caption Provided

Magic

"..You are the most naturally gifted spellcaster I have ever seen.."

Offensive

His magical abilities were praised by quite few people and Malekith himself claimed to be the most dangerous sorcerer in all of the nine realms. His master whom Malekith surpassed at young age, could slaughter entire army of trolls.

No Caption Provided

Worth noting that trolls demonstrated the strenght to at least bother Thor and at best challenge him. He displayed telekinetic abilites once more when he murdered his mentor at the dinner table:

The very same wizard called Malekith the most naturally gifted spellcaster he has ever seen. Thor was able to overpower him when it comes to raw power but Malekith held his own and has quite few tricks up his sleeve.

No Caption Provided

One of the most famous moments in his career, transfigurating Thor' liver into glass.

No Caption Provided

He yet again displayed casual transfiguration when he turned kindneys into pair of rasts, blood into lava and eyes into snakes:

No Caption Provided

Transfigurating and telekinesis aside, Malekith can unleash devastating magical energy:

No Caption Provided

He can kill living beings with mere gesture:

No Caption Provided

And blast Jagrfelm with a magical beam:

No Caption Provided

Malekith showcased pyrokinesis on two separate occasions, first when he burned Thor' arm:

No Caption Provided

And once again when he set human ablaze:

No Caption Provided

Shape-shifting

Malekith is a talended shapeshifter. He can do it at any time and used it on several different occassions to fool him enemies:

No Caption Provided

Malekith can take various shapes and forms:

No Caption Provided

He used it once to battle Thor althought it didn't end up well:

No Caption Provided

Illusions

Malekith poisoned Loki and cast a spell so Thor' brother would look exactly like the dark elf. Then he impersonated Balder the Brave:

Durability

Malekith' durability might not be anything extraoridinary and like all faires he is vulnerable to iron but it's still superhuman:

No Caption Provided

On the picture above Malekith survive prolonged pummeling from angry Thor. He was hurt but such feat still require superhuman durability. On another occasion he got hit with Thor' lighting, he loses his form but other than that is unharmed:

No Caption Provided

He earned his famous scar by surviving a powerful magical blast to the face:

No Caption Provided

Last but not least takes the beating from Mandarins and treats them like a D-list villains they are:

No Caption Provided

Malekith also took hits from Mjlonir quite few times.

Wild Hunt

"..Let the great horn be sounded. The Wild Hunt has begun!"

One of Malekith' many titles is Lord of the Wild Hunt. Thanks to mystical instrument called Hunting Horn of the Faires he can summon a pack of devilish hounds that will chase and devour any of their master enemies.

No Caption Provided

During their very first appearence they battled classic Thor:

They were no match for him but Odinson himself stated that their their number was overwhelming and he had the advantage of fighting on an iron bridge that limited their movements, preventing them from attacking at once.

No Caption Provided

As seen above they are quite numerous and possess the ability to fly just like Malekith. Combined with outstanding maneuverability they make Malekith even more dangerous, his foe not only has hard time catching him but has to deal with an entire army of flesh devouring hounds and sometimes even their riders.

Unrestricted by iron they could eventually overpower Balder the Brace.

Close quarter combat

"The sword, Twilight, is finished. The hosts are ready. And when he strikes the third blow against the power of Asgard, then shall the Nine Worlds shake as never before!"

Malekith rarely utilize his sword to begin with but magical blade' cutting potential alone makes it a great tool:

No Caption Provided

Hurting dark elf might not be overly impressive but on another occasion he managed to stab Thor with little effort:

No Caption Provided

Defeats Lady Sif, she was arguably hurt at the moment though:

Evades an attack and strike with his magical blade with enough force to make Thor wheeze:

Agile enough to dodge strike from Minotaur:

And strong and fast enough to murder a giant from the inside:

Briefly fights all Mandarins at once:

Miscellaneous

"Welcome to the War of the Realms, you fools. And know... your bleeding has scarcely begun."

Becomes Sera' vessel and scheme against Odin and Thor:

Honestly would never expect anyone to make a Malekith respect thread. Makes me feel a little better about Thor losing his arm to this guy. Good job.

@foxerdes: Great RT man. Malekith is a really underrated villain, this should change that.

@asgardianbrony: Thanks a lot! Plus he has nearly as many titles as Daenerys Targaryen, that's something.

I love his appearence in War of the Realms and recent issues of Thor.

I'd pay to see "Malekith phases his heart out" on battle forum.

Very good respect thread. I didn't know he was so powerful in the comics. His movie counterpart is so off. They don't even look that much alike.

Updated with few feats I missed:

  • Transfigurating blood into lava, kindneys into rats and eyes into snakes.
  • Shrugging off Mjolnir hitting him in the head.
  • Takes two lighting bolts in rapid succession.
  • Added blood magic ritual that resurrected Laufey
