Algrim the Strong was once one of the mightiest and strongest Dark Elves to have served under Malekith the Accursed. During Thor's rescue of Lorelei at the hands of Malekith, Algrim ambushed Thor in order to defeat him. As they were fighting, Malekith opened a chasm under them that led to a pit of molten lava. Thor managed to fly back to safety but Algrim fell into the magma, kept alive by the enchanted armor he wore at the time but suffered agonizing pain. He was rendered an amnesiac, not remembering the real reason why he fell into the lava. The only thing he kept in his mind was that Thor was to blame and developed a seething hatred for him. The Beyonder sensed this hatred and performed an experiment where he restored Algrim to full health, remodeled his armor and made it a part of him, and increased his strength to untold levels, all just to see what he would do. This new being, now called Kurse, had a single personal goal, to kill Thor.
