You guys all know about the bad dude of Lord of the Rings, Sauron right?
Well he used to have a boss called Melkor (later on called Morgoth)
For those that don’t know, this is the guy that made all of Sauron’s doings with the rings look like kindergarten bullying. Sauron was a basically a demigod (called a Maia), Melkor, however, was full on god status (called a Vala). He was constantly wreaking havoc across against all of creation and the 14 other Valar (Melkor was the 15th).
(Check out this gallery for more info on the Valar)
This dude had all sorts of scariness under his command. You remember the Balrog that killed Gandalf? (temporarily)
He had an army of these. A MOTHERFUCKING ARMY OF BALROGS. DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA HOW SCARY THAT WOULD BE?!Well here is an idea.
That is not even the end of it. HE ALSO HAD AN ARMY OF DRAGONS. AN ARMY. Many of which would put Smaug to shame, including this monstrosity, Ancalagon the Black
Yes, he is palming a FUCKING VOLCANO. Melkor also had an ally that make your worst nightmares its little bitch.
That is Ungoliant. CHECK OUT HOW GRATUITOUSLY GIGANTIC SHE IS. She was never truly under his command for various reasons that include her strength and the fact she was a huge bitch.
So what do you do against a guy who has all that power? You would die instantly, but not Fingolfin. Fingolfin was an elf king of Noldor. He was just an elf, he wasn’t even on Sauron or Gandalf’s level (demigods called Maia) and he challenged Melkor to single combat.
HE WANTED TO FIGHT HIM. And he was such a bad ass that he didn’t die instantly. And not only did he hold his own, HE SEVERELY FUCKED UP MELKOR’S FACE AND GAVE HIM A PERMANENT LIMP (Get the fuck out of here Achilles and Hector, this fight is the best duel of all time, OF ALL TIME) He eventually lost the fight, (he WAS fighting a god) but not before giving Melkor anguish for the rest of his life. So next time you say that all elves are prissy little bitches, you need to shut the fuck up and reevaluate your life.
