Top 10 Tricky Facts About Loki

1.Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) 

Loki belongs to a people called the Ice Giants, who live in a place called Jotunheim. He was born much smaller and weaker than the other Ice Giants - who can grow up to 25 feet tall and are covered in ice - so his father, King Laufey, hid him in a castle and eventually abandoned him. When Odin attacked the Jotans, he found the abandoned prince and decided to raise him as his own in Asgard with his biological son Thor. Loki didn't find out he was adopted until he was an adult. Talk about a bomb going off.

2. the Artful Deceiver.

The Marvel character draws inspiration from the Scandinavian god Loki, who is a trickster figure, which means that Loki will give others trouble and trick them with his magic, but he is never really evil. The purpose of the trickster figure in the myths is to help the hero grow by overcoming difficulties and trickery of the trickster. So, Thor should thank Loki for making him stronger.

3. Pretty Woman in Pink.

Loki's first official appearance in Marvel Comics was in 1962 in Journey Into Mystery #85. However, Loki had previously appeared in Timely Comics, which later became Marvel, in 1949 in Venus #6 .  He looked completely different, wearing a bright red short neckline and a pink suit with shoulder pads, which made him fashionable.

4. Fear Me.

Loki has a wide range of abilities in the comics that have not been shown (yet?) in the MCU. Frigga, wife of Odin and mother of Thor and Loki, is shown to have trained Loki in magic, and his boundless wit and intelligence are, of course, always apparent. Loki is also endowed with something called "speed of thought," which allows him to think faster than lightning and react quickly in battle. Because he is a Frost Giant, he can change the size of his body to shrink or turn into a giant. Take that, Ant-Man.

He is also fireproof, as shown in Loki: Agent of Asgard #7. In fact, he is so powerful that the X-Men mutant Rogue, who has the ability to drain the power of others through physical contact, becomes overwhelmed when you try to drain him. And let's not forget that Loki's body is extremely strong, as viewers of the first Avengers movie will recall , illustrated in the scene where the Hulk slaps Loki profusely like a rag doll, and he doesn't even lose consciousness.

5. Man, I feel like a woman.

Don't get too attached to any one version of Loki. The god of mischief can change his age and appearance to suit his purposes, even turning into a woman to disguise himself and manipulate others. Loki is gender-altering and pansexual, as seen in the 2014 issue of Loki: Agent of Asgard . He adapts to all circumstances (or anything else).

6. Lots of greenery?

When Thor was eight years old, Odin gave him a magical hammer designed to help him control his power. This was the first time Loki showed envy of his older brother and the attention and affection he received from his father. When Mjolnir's hammer was being made, Loki intervened, causing the handle to be too short.

7. Avengers Assembled.

In both the comic book and the first Avengers movie, Loki is responsible for bringing the Avengers team together. His desire to cause havoc on Earth and avenge Thor eventually turns against him, much to the delight of fans around the world. Welcome, world.

At one point in the comic book, Loki adopts the Avengers strategy and brings Earth's most powerful villains together. He calls the group Prime Movers, and their goal is to destroy the Avengers. The group includes Red Skull (the villain from Captain America), Magneto (the mutant villain from X-Men) and Doctor Doom.

Loki has a bad reputation as a villain, but digging deep beneath the surface, he's not interested in gaining power or control like he does to appear to be. He enjoys watching the results of the experiments he conducts on those around him, but he seeks respect and wants nothing more than to be Thor's equal.

10. Cheering for the loser

Part of what makes Loki's character so appealing-even though he does so many morally questionable things-is that he is a loser and evokes a lot of sympathy. After all, he is an orphan growing up in a family in which he constantly feels like an outsider. He has never felt fully accepted. In contrast, his golden-haired brother Thor is certainly loved and accepted not only by their parents, but also by the people of Asgard. We'd be a little jealous, too.
