He does it several times. Then again it's not that surprising as you said you don't even remember his fight with Thor.

I'm exaggerating slightly about what he said in the thread about favorite action scene. I'm just messing with him, just so no one takes it seriously.

I remember his in the prison break,him pummeling Thor and Loki killing him. But other than that he was just there.

Are you referring to him beofre or after he transformed?

I'm talking about him as Kurse, although it of course goes for both. Scenes on the ship and on Svartalfheim.

He's pretty forgettable though he looks tough and scary.

He actually doesn't have much personality just like Malekith. Yeah he's strong and tough but most villains are.

His deeds will probably be easy to remember for most. It's not like henchmen often have much personality and I find it pretty funny that the post above says that he's strong and tough like most villains. I guess Hulk is strong and tough like most heroes then.

Yes, his voice alters in the transformation. The transformation is cool and you definitely see it happening. He merges with his armor, like in the comics.

Beyonder fuses his armor to his skin, and it takes a bit of a different form, so in that sense Kurse is similar in both versions. If you look at the panels you link to you can see the armor changing appearance when he is created again by Beyonder.

For me Kurse was a highlight in this, he wasnt in it enough and his fight with Thor was better than the final battle for me.

That part is just what I remember from the comics.

Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
From Marvel's wiki entry on Algrim/Kurse, under the powers section:

"Living Armor: Once again, due to the Beyonder's augmentation, Kurse's armor was a living part of him, growing organically, and helped contribute to his already staggering durability."

Kurse's film origin and that relation to his powers kinda reminded me of Renard from The World is Not Enough.

^I thought the way they did his origin in the movie and transformation was quite clever and pretty damn creepy at the same time. Obviously they didnt want the Beyonder coming in an doing his thing but the way they worked it out and presented it was great.

I just wish he would have been in the movie more.

Yeah it was extremely creepy, really the fanaticism of the Dark Elves was an interesting take.

the armor he's wearing that eventually bonds with him is actually a nice call back to his traditional look in the comics regarding its colors and design.

the same thing happens to the other elves who become "Kursed", their white face masks melt into their body when they transform.
