Comics THORsday is all about Loki getting in big trouble. What’s Old Loki planning to do with the young one? We’ll discover a new character in Loki AoA #6, and we’ll also get to peek into Loki’s family relationships thanks to Original Sin: Thor & Loki, the Tenth Realm. Loki AoA #6 also introduces us to the path of Axis, another graphic novel. I read it, and I must say that you don’t really need that one to keep up reading Loki AoA, so we’ll skip Axis (we’re fine with the resume Loki AoA will provide to us.) So, what’s up with Loki AoA #6? There are three important things that we must read carefully: the introduction of an old mate of Loki, Victor Von Doom; the guilt Loki feels for destroying Kid Loki, his better self; and the short trip to the alternate future where Old Loki is King of Asgard. (If you don’t like bugs, you’ll get the chills in this issue.)
The cover’s pretty awesome. Here there are some clues: a new character who can trap Loki because he knows him already (well, at least, his older version); and Loki caught by things he cannot really control!
Verity is the only friend Loki has at the moment, and he’s pissed her off. Why? Remember how he treated her while breaking into Asgard during the last issue? Old habits are hard to kill, and Loki likes to show off whenever he can. So, he did. The problem is that Loki would like to be better with her, he does want to explain everything to her, and when he’s about to do it…
Victor Von Doom prevents him to do so! Victor is the master of Latveria, a villain who has an iron fist. He is, in fact, a would-be conqueror who has an explosive personality. Victor is a wizard but also a scientist. In fact, he has much in common with Loki in that sense. He travels to the future and encounters the Older version of Loki. Thinking there’s only one, he decides to make things right. And then, something happens. Red Skull unleashes a psychic attack!
In The Tenth Realm, we’ll take a look at Loki’s family and how messed up they are. In turns out that there are not nine realms like we’ve been told in the MCU and the comics till now, but 10!!! And in this 10th hidden realm, there live warrior angels that are very spooky. One of them is Thor & Loki’s sister: Angela!
Pay close attention to the scroll-like captions. These are like the ones in Loki AoA. Also, remember Norse Mythology! There are some issues in here that are paramount for Loki in Loki AoA. [Who might be the narrator here?]
We also know a little bit about Loki’s diet: he likes meats! If you’re a fan of Tom Hiddleston, you might be thinking that Loki’s favorite food might be pudding, right? Nope, it’s meats!
Old Loki is having fun watching the Telly! He’s taking a look at all the events that are happening around Angela. Pay close attention to his behavior, because he might be giving away a lot of information about him.
These two pages are vital! Not only we see that female Loki is accepted by Odin, but we also see how the terms of their relationship are at the moment. Even if it looks pretty good, please consider taking a closer look at these two pages. (You can read what’s up here.) Things might be better for Young Loki with his family, but they’re not as good as he might be thinking. Keep this detail in your memory while you read the next issues of Loki AoA.
