The Fenris Wolf is a creature of Asgardian origin, said to be offspring of Loki and the giantess Angrboda.
Just like Norse mythology, Odin had the dwarfs forge the chain Gleipnir ("deceiver" or "entangler"). It appeared to be only a silken ribbon but was made of six wondrous ingredients: the sound of a cat's footfall, the beard of a woman, the roots of a mountain, bear's sinews, fish's breath, and bird's spittle (which explains why these things are not found today). When it came to binding the Fenris Wolf, Tyr lost his hand in the process.
It is prophesied that when Ragnarok occurs, Fenris will devour Odin.
Hela one time unchained Fenris Wolf to bring about Ragnarok only to be thwarted by Thor.
Fenris Wolf once battled the Hulk and his Pantheon allies.
Loki later unchained Fenris Wolf to aid him, Ulik, and Hyrm in attacking Asgard using weapons that were forged for them by Surtur. Ulik and Fenris Wolf attacked Thor together only for Thor to attack them using Mjolnid which resulted in the blast removing Sif's arm. Hyrm joined up with Ulik and Fenris Wolf and managed to shatter Mjolnid.
Later on, Fenris Wolf attacked Thor, Captain America, and Iron Man when they were in Asgard. When Fenris Wolf was about to attack Thor, Captain America threw his shield into the mouth. Captain America kicked Fenris Wolf in the stomach to reclaim the shield, then Thor beat him badly, followed by Captain America scaring Fenris Wolf off.
When Kurse was protecting innocent children, Fenris fought Kurse and killed him by sending a hammer into his skull.
Fenris Wolf assisted in the attack on Vanaheim and faced Thor again in battle. Thor bound Fenris Wolf in chains and used it's body to knock down Durok in order to save Sif. With Durok slain, Fenris Wolf snapped it's chains and fought Thor only to be struck down by Beta Ray Bill. Beta Ray Bull used the power of his hammer Stormbreaker upon the Fenris Wolf reducing him to a skeleton as the monster's punishment for attacking a weakened Thor. Those that were fighting with the Fenris Wolf fled.
Fenris Wolf returned to life and swallowed Asgard's sun and the moon assisting to bring about Ragnarok as Asgard perishes.
