Are the infinity stones tied into it? Loki says he could accomplish alot with the Aether...
Well, we can assume that Aesir, Vanir and Jotun all are basically belong to one species and they are just different races that share most characteristics and can interbreed, with Jotun being perhaps the oldest, "proto species" among them. They all seems to share longevity, affinity with "source"(again they utilize it differently - Jotun use it to direct elemental control while Aesir and Vanir use it more sophisticated way - Frigga`s and Loki tricks- ironically Thor himself utilize it in basic, elemental control, way) and extreme durability-so perhaps Loki was just born looking like more "advanced" race of the species (small and with hair) -it rare but can happen.
So I do not think it linked with infinity stones and Loki give the Aether to Collector so I doubt he will use it.
