Bio:
The father of all giants.

Ymir is the most powerful Frost Giant making him ruler of the Frost Giants. He rules over the land of Niffelheim in Asgard where he and his brethren reside. He is so old that he predates any of the gods with Surtur being the sole being in the Norse cosmos older then him.

*** MARVEL HISTORY ***
After countless centuries a strange form of life magically appeared. The tons of ice which had been forming above the Well of Life changed their shape, and turned into Ymir, greatest of all the evil Frost Giants.

Seconds later, another form of life appeared -this was a gigantic magic cow, whose milk provided nurishment for the monstrous Ymir! And, for ages, Ymir and the magic cow roamed the frozen wastes.

Ages ago Odin and his brothers slew Ymir and according to Norse myth created the world from his body.

Despite being killed Ymir has returned numerous times to plague Asgard. Each time he has been defeated with the result being either imprisonment or death, but he constantly returns. Several times he has been summoned to Earth by the Sons of Satannish and battled various superheroes such as the X-Men or Avengers before being returned to his native dimension. He is a sworn enemy of Odin due to their past history. He is also an enemy of the fire giant Surtur due to being opposing elements. The last known battle with him left him imprisoned in the Sea of Eternal Twilight.

He did not participate in the final Ragnarok and is presumed to have died with the rest of the Norse cosmos. Considering how difficult both him and Surtur have been to kill he is expected to return.

Notes:
Ymir is a character from Norse mythology. Accounts of the mythological Ymir stretch back to sources such as Poetic Edda, and Prose Edda, which are collections of older Norse stories and poems.
