Loki Year 2016 is here again! Today we’re reading about Loki’s path to Ragnarok from lessons 1 to 4, book 4 of the Gospel of Loki. Loki has escaped and joined forces with Hel and the Jotuns. All enemies of Asgard are joining forces to attack Asgard and make the Gods fall. But Loki has the chills. Even if he will go ahead, there’s something that worries him: is it the end of everything and everyone?
The Death of Balder is well planned by Loki in Gods of Asgard : A Graphic Novel Interpretation of the Norse Myths. Odin tells the Gods the fate of Balder, but his mother refuses to late fate take him. And so, she roams all realms making sure that nothing will harm him. Satisfied, they make a party, and everyone starts throwing stuff at Balder. Nothing harms him till Loki convinces Balder’s older brother to shot an arrow. And so, with the only plant that didn’t swear not to harm Balder, he dies.
Desperation appears among the Gods, and they ask Hela to return him. If all the creatures of the realm cry for him, she’ll return him back. But Loki won’t do it.
In Loki’s insults, Loki tells all the dirty secrets of the Gods in a party. He does it so badly that all Gods are super angry with him. He brags all their secrets out, but he makes a mistake: he confesses that it was him who killed Balder. What will happen next to him?
And finally, we’ll explore a little bit how Lokisexual Loki is according to Geek Anthropology of Loki’s Army. According to mythology, Loki is pansexual (or omnisexual). He shapeshifts even to the opposite gender to have children. In the Marvel Universe, he happens to be bisexual and likes to use both genders depending on what he needs. However, he happens to be so unique that he might be just Lokisexual. Said in other words, what he likes and how he likes it it’s unique. Especially according to Norse mythology, in which he shapeshifts even into animals.
Next: we’ll read lessons 5 to epilogue, book 4 from the Gospel of Loki. We’ll also take a look at the binding of Loki and Ragnarok from Gods of Asgard : A Graphic Novel Interpretation of the Norse Myths.
