AKA; The Evil One, Hans Grubervelt
Probably the greatest thing he could have done was dump the women who was using him. Introduced in Journey into Mystery #103 (1964) by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, Skurge is the son of an Asgardian and a Storm Giant. He became a warrior and earned the name Executioner. He went to Asgard, where he was seduced by Amora, the Enchantress. He fell in love with her and became her bodyguard. The two would go onto fight Thor a number of times and even worked for Loki. After the original Masters of Evil were defeated, they teamed up with Baron Zemo and formed the second team.
They would later join Mandarin’s team and then brought Hulk to Asgard, who they fought and killed before he was revive by Odin. Because of this, they were banished. Skurge eventually left Amora for another woman. He would eventually battle the Defenders and Amora killed the other woman and Skurge became her’s again. Together they would help Loki gain the throne. Sick of being toyed with by Enchantress, he would later team up with Thor to rescue lost soul from Hela’s realm. When they received the soul and were being pursued by an army of the Undead, he bravely fought against the army to allow Thor and allies to escape. He died defending them and earned a place in Valhalla.
He would help Balder and Tyr try and stop Angela from taken over Hel but failed. Angela made Balder the ruler of Hel and Skurge would help fight back against the forces of Sindr. He was eventually revived when Kid Loki tricked him into joined the Asgardians of the Galaxy.
While we haven’t gotten a comic book accurate version of Skurge, the MCU figure is very close in design to allow people to use that as a stand-in.
