    Battle against Odin

    Laufey was King of the Frost GIants until he was killed in a battle against Odin. Neither Laufey or Odin knew that the battle was actually part of a plan between Loki and his younger self, which would lead to Loki being adopted by Odin. Laufey actually survived his fight against Odin, but was killed by Loki via time travel as revenge for all the beatings Laufey had given his son. Loki found killing his father 'therapeutic'.

While the Frost-Giants gathered the remains of Laufey, Malekith managed to put his Laufey's parts back together through the use of magic. It was then that Malikith returned to life and sought revenge against Odin and Asgard and would not stop until the city of Asgardia was in ruins. It was then that he and Malekith encountered the all-new female Thor.
