WAR OF THE REALMS begins on April 3, 2019, featuring Thor, Captain America, Iron Man, Spider-Man, Black Panther, and Captain Marvel, against  The dark-elf sorcerer Malekith wages a war that has spread from one otherworldly realm to the next, razing each one to the ground as his armies move from conquest to conquest. Now there’s only one realm left standing.  You may remember Malekith as the Dark Elf bad guy in the second Thor film, Thor: The Dark World. In that Marvel movie, Malekith was played with some menace by Christopher Eccleston. In recent Thor books, the Dark Elf has proven to be a real pain for Thor (both male and female versions).
