Jolnir is a Frost Giant/Elf hybrid with immense magical power who hails from the realm Alfheim. Rather than use his power to rule, Jolnir used it instead to bring joy to children of the Nine Realms, giving them gifts, particularly to Midgard (Earth). Jolnir's antics became a blessed time to the people of the Realms, and they celebrated his merry making ways as a holiday, which came to be known by humans as Christmas. As well, Jolnir gained a new name from the children of Earth, Santa Claus.
He appeared in the TV movie Marvel Super Hero Adventures: Frost Fight, as the main focus of the story.
