Malekith along with a human expedition in the Artic locate Odin's hiding place for the Casket of Ancient Winters on the orders of Loki. Loki released Malekith from the Realm of the Dead with the help of Amora the Enchantress. When Enchantress and Executioner meet Malekith to retrieve the Casket, he uses the power on them; freezing them to the spot. Malekith uses the weapon "to see if it's the true casket," unleashing a harsh everlasting winter on Midgard.

The Avengers; Thor, Iron Man, and Black Panther then encounter Malekith. After freezing Thor, Malekith states that his plan is to release the other dead Dark Elves and make Midgard their new home. Malekith then unleashed his hounds on the Avengers.

Through the battle Iron Man finally frees Thor from the ice as he attacks Malekith. The Avengers with advice form Black Panther attempt to combine their powers of magic and science, Thor uses Mjoiner and strikes lightning on Iron Man's armor to take down Malekith.

Thor then closes the Casket reversing its effects across the planet. But before they can secure the Casket, Enchantress and Executioner thaw-out and steal it from the Avengers, and disappeared with her magic.
