Synopsis for "The Accursed - Part One of Five: The Great Niffleheim Escape or The Svartalfheim Massacre"
On the shores of Niffelheim, a group of Dark Elves arrive and break into the Hall of Nastrond. Their goal is to free their leader Malekith. They manage to free him with only one of their group, Scumtongue, surviving and they then make their way to Svartalfheim. In Asgardia, Thor, Sif and the Warriors Three are celebrating Volstagg's nomination to Governor on the Council of Worlds, when a Dark Elf begins screaming that her world is burning. The heroes quickly fly to Svartalfheim, and there they find a massacre, with men, women and children all slaughtered. Scumtongue and Malekith reveal themselves, along with the other Dark Elves that follow him. Malekith tells Thor that he came home, but was disgusted by how weak his people had become, and plans on hunting them all down across the Nine Worlds and teaching them to be strong again. Leaving Thor and the Asgardians behind, Malekith and his group call forth the Wild Hunt.
