Loki: Am I cursed? Odin: No. Loki: What am I? Odin: You’re my son. Loki: What more than that? The casket wasn’t the only thing you took from Jotunheim that day, was it? Odin: No. In the aftermath of the battle, I went into the temple and I found a baby. Small, for a Giant’s offspring. Abandoned, suffering, left to die. Laufey’s son. Loki: Laufey’s son? Odin: Yes. Loki: Why? You were knee-deep in the Jotun blood. Why would you take me? Odin: You were an innocent child. Loki: No. You took me for a purpose. What was it?
Loki: TELL ME! Odin: I thought we could unite our Kingdoms one day - bring about an alliance, bring about permanent peace - through you. Loki: Wh-? Odin: But those plans no longer matter. Loki: So I’m no more than another stolen relic, locked up here, until you might have use of me? Odin: Why do you twist my words? Loki: You could have told me what I was from the beginning! Why didn’t you?! Odin: You’re my son. I wanted only to protect you from the truth. Loki: Why? Because I- I- I’m the monster parents tell their children about at night? Odin: No- Loki: You know it all makes sense now, why you favoured Thor all these years! Because no much you claimed to love me, you could never have a Frost Giant sitting on the throne of Asgard!
Inspired by a late-night viewing of The Runaways, and partly an exercise to see if I could make star-spangled pants and Wonder Woman go together. The idea started with Wonder Woman (I briefly entertained using an Ian Curtis Batman) but the idea of an all-girl rock band with Black Canary, Zatanna and Batgirl seemed too good to pass up.
The original black and white art will be auctioned off at Heroescon this weekend, June 3-5, so please come visit one of the best comic conventions in the country. It’s a fantastic family show with great guests and excellent programming, and it’s one of my personal favorites. See you there!
Why should Thor get to stomp around like a giant while the rest of us try not to get smushed under his big feet? What's so great about Thor? Hm? Loki is just as cute as Thor. Ok, Loki is just as smart as Thor. People totally like Loki just as much as they like Thor. And when did it become okay for one person to be the boss of everybody, huh? Because that's not what Asgard is about. WE SHOULD TOTALLY JUST STAB THOR!
