    Malekith the Accursed (Marvel Cinematic Universe)

    "Dark Elf Malekith had almost no personsality, and basically existed as freaky-looking dude trying to get an Infinity Stone - and Thanos already does that way, way better."

    Malekith the Accursed (Marvel Cinematic Universe)
    You needn't have come so far, Asgardian. Death would have come to you soon enough
    Gender: Male
    Type: The Weak Side of Malekith
    Species: Dark Elf
    Portrayed by: Christopher Eccleston
    Status: Deceased
    Media of origin: 'Thor: The Dark World'
    First appearance: Thor: The Dark World

    Malekith the Accursed is the main antagonist of the 2013 Marvel film Thor: The Dark World. He is the cruel leader of the Dark Elves (a malevolent race of beings said to be older than the universe itself) who plots to plunge the universe into eternal darkness.

    He was portrayed by Christopher Eccleston.

    Why He Should Be Accursed

    • He is considered to be one of the blandest most generic villains in the entire MCU with almost no notable lines, little personality, no interesting motive besides "destroy things", or any type of depth to speak of.
    • He barely has any presence in the film to the point where it is super easy to forget that he even exists.
    • Him sacrificing his own men to make sure the Asgardians suffered as much as the Dark Elves did is stupid beyond belief. He destroyed his ships with countless Dark Elves still inside them, meaning he killed more of his species than the Asgardians did.
    • If he really knew what he was doing, he would simply use the Aether to make Thor's hammer disappear.
    • He was originally going to have some depth to his character like a family that he cared about but it was cut from the film making fans even more angry as they were denied a possibly interesting character and left with a generic destroyer.
    • Much of his backstory was also cut out of the film denying any explanation or worldbuilding to why he even exists besides him just doing so.
    • He is also a really poor adaptation of his comic counterpart, who is an actually well-liked character while still not exactly loaded in depth is at least interesting.

    Redeeming Quality

    • Christopher Eccleston did a good job portraying him.
    • Promotional porters of him perfectly show him as menacing.
    • He is genuinely cunning and displays this during the admittedly underwhelming action scene MCU Wiki dubs "the Sacking of Asgard".
    • Him shooting slews of dark matter at Thor is a relatively cool and unique move for a Marvel villain (even if he hugely overuses said move).
