Default Re: Tom Hiddleston: Loki Redux - Part 1

It's like Loki is an addict in some ways. The response he seems to be eliciting from Odin in the prelude comics is a very human one when dealing with a loved one overcome by their addictions. I think one of the users is right in that Odin has given up on Loki, and in some ways there is nothing that can be done. I'd wager that Odin feels the son he knew died when Loki fell into the abyss and the Loki Thor brought back is a stranger. Anger is in itself a product of grief and on a deeper level I think Odin is grieving for Loki's spiritual death. All that hurt and betrayal is being masked by the All Father's rage.
