History

Grimnismal is a character from the 2000 AD strip Sláine. It was a nine-dimensional dark god worshipped by the Guledig and his Cythrons.

After lying dormant for several millennia, Grimnismal slowly reawakened with the help of the Cythrons. Hoping to stop this, Myrddin entered the tomb to slay Grimnismal. He was assisted by Sláine, Ukko, Nest, Murdach, Mogrooth, Tlachtga, Calgacus, Oeahoo and Giya. By the time they arrived at Grimnismal's tomb, however, only Sláine, Nest, Ukko, Murdach and Myrddin survived, with Mogrooth being stabbed in the stomach and then eaten by Grimnismal on arrival.

Sláine and Murdach attacked the dark god without much luck, but eventually realised that they could kill it by slicing off its feeding tubes. They cut several before they were stopped by a group of Cythrons and their general Elfric. This proved to be little more than a nuisance to Sláine who quickly escaped and cut off the last of Grimnismal's feeding tubes, sending the dark god insane. (Before that it was just your average, run-of-the-mill nine-dimensional eldritch deity.)

Grimnismal began to flail around attacking randomly, stabbing Elfric with its claws and nearly killing the Guledig. Eventually the god had a warp spasm causing it to explode, killing it, and taking out its tomb in the process.
