Fire Demons are a race of magma-like humanoid creatures that originate from Muspelheim, one of the Nine Realms. They were ruled by their lord Surtur until his destruction in 2017 at the very end of Ragnarök.


Centuries ago, Odin, the king of Asgard, traveled to Muspelheim to battle and defeat Surtur, the leader of the Fire Demons, taking the Eternal Flame with him to prevent Surtur from reaching his full strength in order to cause Ragnarök, the prophecized destruction of Asgard.

In 2017, Thor was captured by Surtur and the Fire Demons in Muspelheim. Thor managed to escape with the help of Mjølnir, so Surtur summoned his Fire Demons to kill him. However, Thor effortlessly fought off the Fire Demons with a powerful blast of lightning. After killing a significant number of the Fire Demons, Thor killed Surtur and took his crown back to Asgard.

A few days later, Loki placed the Crown of Surtur in the Eternal Flame in order to resurrect Surtur so he would cause Ragnarök to kill Hela.[1]
