Which Malekith came first?

Who came first: Malekith the Accursed, foe of Thor in the Marvel comics, or Malekith the Witch-King of Naggaroth, ruler of the Warhammer Dark Elves? Was one definitely swiped from the other? Has legal action ever ensued?

American Popular culture from the early 20th century?

I'm looking for sites related to American popular culture from the early 20th century: books, films, radio, magazines, music, dance, comic strips, celebrities — you name it. I'm particularly interested on the period between the wars, but open to great stuff from before (and during) World War I, as well. Little Nemo, Keystone Kops, the Lindy Hop, Enrico Caruso, Fatty Arbuckle, Al Jolson, Clara Bow, Flash Gordon, Alice blue, Teddy bears, etc. These are all the sorts of things I'm after, especially as they're represented on the web. Bonus points for sites with RSS feeds. [more inside]
