And Kurse wound up battling and losing to the Power Pack.

The. Frickin'. Power. Pack.

Yup, a bunch of Saturday morning cartoon kiddies beat the crap out of the almighty Kurse.

Hell, Kurse was even a joke in Marvel Ultimate Alliance. He paired off with Ulik in Niflheim, and your party beats Kurse down in, like, three hits average, while Ulik proves to be an actual challenge.

Sure am glad that Surtur will wind up being the main villain in T:TDW. Kurse and Malekith are just regrettable throwaways from the bad old days of 80s Marvel.


...They move like slick cotton on oil.
