Hi All. First post long time lurker (at least since the Thor movie came out). Have not read any comic books but I am familiar with the names at least of the super heroes because my brother has those Marvel cards back when we were kids and each card has the characater's bio at the back.
Obviously, based on my user name, I like Loki (not his deeds though, coz they're bad). I am already familiar with him because of Norse mythology. I am a fan of all things mythological - Norse, Greek, Roman.
In the movie verse, I like that he is not just your typical mustache twirling villain. I understand his motivations but I don't agree with his actions. Like everyone, he wants to be loved and respected but he is just going about it the wrong way and so blinded by his anger, jelousy and self pity that he can't see past them. Tom Hiddleston in his interviews perfectly describes Loki and he sees Loki the way I see the character too.
Because of my interest in Loki, I've been doing a lot of reading about him. I found that even in the original mythology, Loki is neither good or evil. Actually, according to historians, there is no such duality in the Norse pagan religion. I liked that about Loki. There's one story where he was travelling with Thor just hanging out and having an adventure. Of course, there's the famous story about Sleipnir. In that story, Loki was actually being nice and it was the gods who were being cheap. They didn't want to pay the builder for the wall being constrcuted with the help of the horse Svašilfari. The gods told Loki to do something to delay the construction or else he will be punished. And we know what he did.
Another story of mythological Loki that I enjoy is the Lokasenna, He basically crashes a party of the gods and insults everyone. Here's a link to the poem: http://www.sacred-texts.com/neu/poe/poe10.htm
Here's a very modern translation of the text. I must say, the translation is pretty accurate. Verily.
