Surtur was an enormous fiery demon native to the dimension of Asgard. Possessed of evil intelligence and vast power, Surtur was one of the major elemental forces of evil that the Asgardians feared. He was a mystical being whose existence predated that of Odin himself. Over 1,000 feet tall and wielding a huge fiery sword, he was once imprisoned by Odin at the Earth’s core. Along with Ymir the Frost Giant and the Midgard Serpent, Surtur was the most powerful of Asgard’s native enemies.
Surtur has been freed from imprisonment a few times over the years. The first time the Asgardian god of mischief Loki set Surtur free to wreak havok on Earth. The second time Surtur was set free by Marduk of the Sons of Satannish, a cult of human demon-worshippers. Surtur was banished to some unnamed netherworld at the end of that encounter. He appeared, yet again, in what was to be one of the Asgardians greatest battles against Surtur. Loki hatched a scheme to take over Asgard. He released Surtur and attacked. Surtur crossed Bifrost with his newly forged Twilight blade believing Asgard to be defenseless; Odin and Thor were there to make a last stand to defeat Surtur along with some assembled heroes from Earth. Their victory did not come easy though, as Odin fell along with Surtur into a dimensional rift.
