Re: The (potential) Masters of Evil thread
That's kind of the whole point, isn't it? Loki knows nothing of Thanos' power, and he's blinded by "glorious (single-minded) purpose," so he's easily manipulated. Thanos plays him like a pawn, but Loki is completely oblivious that he's being used....*he* thinks he's bargaining with an equal, an "interstellar gangster" (or whatever Hiddie called him). He thought exchanging the Tesseract for the "throne" of Midgard was an equal trade. But Loki would've never viewed himself as a servant of Thanos --- in his mind, *he's* the genius, and Thanos is just a gangsta who wants a shiny magic wish-box.
