    of course they got rid of it :doh:
    that would have been cool

    Technically they *can* do whatever they want. but like I said, to me, and to a lot of people, turning him "good" just doesn't seem like the right thing to do for such an iconic villain, and that's why. But sure, let's not beat a dead horse, back to just discussing Loki,

    oh, the picture, obviously Loki doesn't like who he is. He has his moments, and he did in siege as well. But he is still who he is. He's seeming like an anti-villain.. Unlike freakin Kletus Cassidy that psychopath lol but that's why loki is great, and marvel's second best villain behind Thanos :p

    off topic for a second, but it seems like MCU Thanos will probably be pretty damn evil. Through out the 90s, in my eyes anyway, he went through a character change, into what I see as an anti-villain. and has actually aided heroes.


    but back to thor 1, I don't understand why they would cut something like that out. That's certainly somwething Loki has been missing. Fan of him or not, you gotta admit, you're tired of seeing him JUST create astral projections. Also, I don't see MCU Loki biting the dust anytime soon

    Magneto did as well for a time yes? didn't he lead the X men and the school for a time, when I think Xavier was dead.




    From an early draft of the Thor 1 script...

    THOR
    I've changed.

    LOKI
    So have I.
    Loki hits Thor across the face with Gungnir.

    LOKI (CONT'D)
    Fight me.
    He swings Gungnir at Thor again. Thor catches it in his
    hand, rears back his hammer as if ready to return the blow,
    but instead takes to the air and flies past Loki, back
    towards the frozen controls.
    Loki spins around, aims Gungnir, and fires a blast which
    immobilizes Thor in the air. He hangs there, suspended.

    THOR
    Is the throne really worth what
    you've done? What you would
    become?

    LOKI
    I never wanted the throne. I only
    wanted to be your equal. Now fight
    me!

    With a gesture of Gungnir, he flings Thor to the ground.
    Thor rises to his feet, turns to Loki.

    THOR
    I will not fight you, brother.

    oh yeah I remember reading that. But, it was with gunjir. I'd rather see him do this stuff under his own power.

    and iirc the magneto story you are reffering to is Age of Appocalypse. Legion, who is Xavier's son, travels back in time, kill charles, and in an alternate universe, he leads the xmen

    I don't think I missed it though. I think we're simply talking past each other here. ;) I keep quoting you but I'm not just addressing you here, so don't feel like I'm singling you out.

    And as for where Loki's character comes from... Well, let's just say I'm Swedish. This playes a significant role in how I look at any characterisation that has borrowed Norse gods (and this is about all the characters, not just Loki). I cannot free myself entirely from a cultural influence that has been part of me 42+ years. I have been comparing the original myth to the comics since I was a kid, and I always will, because the Norse myth got to me first (thanks mum, dad, school, the list goes on). My husband, who loves X-Men, will not touch Thor for that reason alone.

    The essence of characters as they have been won't change, that I know and that's not something I question (and they are all, more or less, in line with the original ones Marvel decided to borrow). I just want to say that because someone won't describe a character such as Loki as evil or crazy, that doesn't mean they are fangirl smooching Loki (nor are they necessarily calling Thor a villain when pointing out that he has done some thing that definitely aren't all that charming). Loki is a villain, but the question is why is he a villain. That may not interest everyone, but it piques my interest and that's why I came here - along with the fact that spoilers can be found here too. I'm also an academic, used to picking anything apart, analysing everything, question everything and I will not retort to simple explanations or use labels that has little value if you want an insight in someone's scenic brain, and that goes for Loki as well as for Thor.

    Hopefully, but that all depends on if it fits in the film. Time should allow for more of the things that explains these people though, and if we are to believe what some actors have said, there's a good chance we'll get just that. Yay for us! :woot:

    On a side note, I hate this. I want to be spoiled. :argh:

    And Loki has been nominated for a Nickelodeon Kids Choice award for Favorite Villain (along with Simon Cowell LOL) Hey, jaqua99, you are still young enough to vote for a Kids Choice Award, right? (LOL I KID! I KID! Joking!! :p)

    Chris and RDJ are nominated for favorite Butt Kicker and Avengers for Favorite film (up against Hunger Games so that one probably they won't get). But I definitely think there's a good chance Loki will win. :D

    Okay time to cleanse the pallet and get that image out of my head. LOL

    [​IMG]

    Loki is not amused. :BA

    I wonder how much he'll wear the helmet in Thor 2. I mean he's said how hot it is, how it scrambles his brains from the heat, and uncomfortable. Seems like he may not wear it as much due to being in prison for part of it. Not like Thor ever has to wear his... :whatever:

    I wouldn't mind Thor using his helmet a bit more actually, though from the pics we've got it seems he's not.

    If Loki wears his it's probably during some of the outdoor scenes, and if it's during the Iceland ones, heat won't be much of a problem. :cwink: Good lord, they dress up in shorts and Hawaiian shirts when it's 15 C/60F and call it summer. Says something about temperatures over there.

    No Elizah, I am a MAN :cmad:

    :woot:

    See. I think that's a good thing though. If he looks hot/uncomfortable/sweaty, I think it adds a different look to the character. Making him scarier, or more intense

    literally doesn't make sense doesn't it? Loki has worn his, and Thor's head gear is more notorious as part of his physical appearance than Loki is. If they can have loki pull it off, with these giant horns, then they can have thor pull it off with wings. It will work. I think it's more of a crown though.

    Think about it. Thor wore it during his correnation. Odin had his on. Loki had his on. Loki put it on when he felt he desevers king. So maybe when thor is king, he will wear it in battle..

    you know how he summons armor??? I think it could work like that

    In Loki's case he seems to dress up in finery, so to speak, when he's projecting power; he aims to be king, and when he morphs on to that armour with his helmet, it's to show what he thinks is what he's meant to be. "Look at me, I'm your ruler (or at least, I mean to be)." That's not exactly what Thor is about, so from that perspective it's logical why he's not wearing his much.

    As far as I can remember, Odin didn't make him king, though he tells him he will be a good one. I always assumed they had come to some sort of agreement there, that Odin would keep being king for now, but Thor would become king eventually, just as it had always been. Thor had learned his lesson and knew he still had much to learn. He didn't have to become king at that point either since Odin's powers were restored. If he's not king, well, it seems there is no winged helmet either. Much, anyway. Ceremonies I guess. Let's hope we'll get some of those then.

    I think the helmet for him is about a Napoleonic complex, he wants to appear taller/bigger than everyone else, either due to his feelings of inferiority to Thor, or maybe he even subconsciously knows he's a mini Frost Giant.

    Oh, and I read a request for shirtless Loki from Godzilla2000 in the Thor thread soooooo...

    [​IMG]

    YOU asked for it Godzilla2000!

    [​IMG]

    Because you know I will not deny a request for shirtless Hiddles...

    [​IMG]

    Even *that guy* is impressed. LOL

    or perhaps you prefer manips to make Tom look more like Loki...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    or an artist rendition of shirtless Loki?
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    or good old shirtless comic book Loki?

    Helping Lorelei to make Thor jealous....
    [​IMG]

    or showing his blacksmith skills....
    [​IMG]

    Had enough? No? Okay well I'm putting this one in spoiler tags because it is just TOO hot, and I'm not sure some of your hearts can take it so... open with that caution, because this one will cause quite a reaction. REALLY. I promise you it will...

    I think it understood that upon Odin's death the throne will go to Thor.

    P.S. Curse you Elizah...and proof that shirtless Loki is canon too. ;)

    Hadn't seem the blacksmithing one before!

    There's another one you've posted before where he is imprisoned. . .*and* shirtless.

    That's what I've been sayin'! :yay:

    Sometimes I think you are in league with Tom just to make me absolutely lust after him.

    I'm thinking that in his mind Mephisto is saying, "You might be shirtless Loki but I'm shirtless and wearing only a loincloth."

    oh, yes, can't find it at the moment but I remember it looked like he had no pants in that too. Apparently Asgardians have a no shirt no pants no problem policy when it comes to imprisoning and torturing people.

    IE shirtless, pantless, myth Loki...

    Well, yes, it is a projection, as much for him as for the everyone else.


    :funny: That one really cracked me up when I saw it a while ago.

    I think I'm about to get an overdose actually. I've been wading through enormous amounts of Loki pics and gif's on Pinterest lately, because everyone seems to have gone crazy about him (and Hiddles). When did that happen? It was quite calm just a while ago and then suddenly, KAPOW, everyone. It's like a delayed after effect from Avengers or something.

    I think it might have something to do with the recent showing of Hollow Crown here in the States on PBS and his portrayal of Prince Hal. All I have to say is that his sauna scene must have caused a fair amount of lusty attention to images of Tom lately.
