Thor: Ragnarok. What’s up with Mjolnir!?

I cannot stop thinking about Thor: Ragnarok. To be more precise: I cannot stop thinking about Mjolnir. We’ve all seen how Hela has smashed Thor’s favorite toy. But, is it a toy? It might seem ridiculous to worry about the fate of a Hammer; however, there’s much more to Mjolnir that meets the eye.

For starters, Mjolnir is the Hammer of God. Well, the Hammer of Thor. As Odin stated in the first movie, “Whosoever holds this hammer, if he be worthy, shall possess the power of Thor.” Thus, it very much looks like the Hammer is the source of Thor’s power. If so, what will happen to Thor during Ragnarok? Is he mortal again?

As you remember, Odin sent Thor to Earth without his powers so that he would learn a lesson. He was a bully and a spoiled individual. Very much like any child, he would ask for what he wanted without understanding or care for the consequences. Soon, Thor discovered that he wasn’t a kid anymore, and that he needed something more than a shiny face to have the things that he wanted.

Thor: Ragnarok Teaser Trailer Reaction

I’m so hooked on Thor: Ragnarok teaser trailer! Thor sees how Hela destroys his hammer with style, a lot of style. We see Loki having fun with knives, and we have a flair for comedy thanks to the Hulk. But there are several points that we need to geek out loud thanks to this trailer.

Thor appears hanging from chains into a lava abyss. I bet that must be Hela’s realm. Hela’s awesome and super spooky. For starters, she appears with her traditional appearance in the comics: with lots of horns and very intimidating. She’s alluring, yes. But, she’s also very intimidating. We get to see for the first time too Valkyrie.

Valkyrie is working for the Grandmaster. And who is he? The Grandmaster is one of the Elders of the Universe. And, he’s the brother of the Collector. We know that from the comics.

Joanne M. Harris Runemarks: you have to love Loki

You have to read Joanne M. HarrisRunemarks. If you love Loki, this is another great piece of literature on him. I read The Gospel of Loki time ago, and then I put my eyes onRunemarks. It’s a masterpiece. If you compare the sizes of The Gospel of Loki and Runemarks you’ll realize that Loki has been creating some mischief. One book is small, and the other is so big. Blame the trickster.

Be advised: there are mild SPOILERS ahead. But don’t be surprised to find tons of incredible mischief, chaos, and trouble. If you find Loki in a book, well, he sets up stuff to be frenzy.

Embracing my Dark Side with Villain Archetypes

Today I want to explore the art of embracing my Dark Side with villain archetypes. We have a tendency to love villains more than heroes. Although we think of ourselves wonderful people, some of us tend to root for the villains. Meanwhile, we talk all about positivity and try to be our best. However, we do have a dark side. How we manage it make us villains or heroes for the people around us.

In ancient times, people used mythology to explore their bright and dark sides. We can believe we’ve forgotten this stage in evolution, but we aren’t that different from our ancestors. The only difference is what archetypes we use. Instead of Hercules, we choose Superman. Our myths are found in pop culture, not in ancient books anymore.

So, when we are having a rough time, and we start thinking about a thousand ways to Hulk-smash someone, instead of thinking about unicorns, we would probably be thinking about Darth Vader and Loki. Let me explain.

After The Gospel of Loki: Runemarks

runemarks, the gospel of loki, loki, loki's army, depepi, depepi.com

I lost count on how many times I’ve read The Gospel of Loki. Now, I plan to re-read it after I finish Runemarks. If you haven’t got your hands on these books, I recommend you to do it soon. The Gospel of Loki is one of my favorite books. It’s funny, witty and it makes you love Loki regardless of all his tricks and misbehaviors. Runemarks seems to be a great read as well. However, I wasn’t expecting the book’s size! (It’s going to be a challenge to put these two books together on a shelf!)

If you’ve been following this blog, you already know that Loki is one of my favorite characters. And so, I feel the need to read all things Loki. When I first read The Gospel of Loki I was delighted: Joanne M. Harris has captured the trickster in all his glory. Thus, there’s no surprise here I will read Runemarks too.

Loki Year 2016: Loki Plans for Ragnarok

Loki Year 2016 keeps up! Today we’ll find out how Loki starts his plans for Ragnarok. But first, we’ll take a look at some adventures of Thor. We’ll take a look at Thor vs. Geirrod in Gods of Asgard : A Graphic Novel Interpretation of the Norse Myths‘s version. Loki wants to go for a ride, so he asks Freyja for her falcon cloak. Unfortunately, when going around spying Geirrod, a Jotun, he’s caught. He bargains with Loki and tells him to bring Thor to him, or he’ll kill Loki. He has two hideous daughters that laugh a the idea.

Loki Year 2016: Loki and snakes don’t compute

I love what’s going on with Loki Year 2016! Today we’ll discover that Loki and snakes don’t compute. Loki is famous for not liking snakes very much, especially if they let poison into his eyes. But before we explore Loki’s allergies, we’ll take a look at Thor’s journey to Utgard and Thor’s duel with Hrungnir from the eyes of Gods of Asgard : A Graphic Novel Interpretation of the Norse Myths. In Thor’s Journey to Utgard and Thor’s duel with Hrungnir, Thor plans to go to Jotunheim and fight Jotuns on the ground. Loki, of course, asks him to reconsider. Thor was going to go alone, but then he lets Loki join the fun. Because there’s a long journey ahead, they stop for dinner in a nearby farmhouse. Because it’s a penniless family, they have no meat. So, Thor offers one of his goats. They regenerate at night, so there should be no problem, right?
