The best summation of Kid Loki
Agent of Asgard is out tomorrow so I made this
Journey Into Mystery #633
The torrent of bits and the pad of i
"Aside from that little detail, though… [Thor]’s not Loki’s enemy anymore. He’s Loki’s brother - Loki’s big, warm, good-hearted brother, who likes a drink and who’d fight to the death for his friends and family. And Loki, for the first time in a very long while, finds himself responding to that warmth. Loki can no longer find it in him to hate Thor, and they’re getting along better than they have in centuries. (It’s all based on a lie, of course, but it’s still nice to see.)"
Proper punctuation is important.

YOUNG AVENGERS #7 & 8

• Three months have passed for the Young Avengers. What have they been up to? Fun stuff, I’ll bet. The sort of “stuff” that makes an excellent super hero comic. THIS IS TRUTH WITH A CAPITAL EVERYTHING.
• A very important breakfast. A new Young Avenger. A selection of emotions.
• Oh - I bet you thought we forgot about those Skrulls from issue 1. We haven’t.
• The Young Avengers desperately race across the multiverse. Nothing can stop their pursuit of their missing friend. Except the urge to stop and take photos, obv.
• Lots of cleverly hidden exposition.
• Kieron decides it’s time to make all the JOURNEY INTO MYSTERY readers scream.

Journey Into Mystery #642
Reason number two hundred forty six I couldn’t deal with this arc. Somewhere between “you can’t even be trusted to take care of a dog” and “I was only trying to help!” I broke a little on the inside and the hug just finished me off.
What does me in about Kid!Loki (along with all the other things that do shut up don’t look at me like that) is his genuine desire to be better. He doesn’t (very often, at least, I can’t recall specifically how much) make claim to being a hero, or wanting to be a hero, but when he says to Thor “you do that!” about saving humans and the “I was only trying to help”-
The thing about kid!Loki is that he really is a kid. He’s a child with the memory of years upon years of sophisticated, deliberate villainy. A child with a host of good intentions that all come crashing down on his head at once. Who tries to be a hero, not just like his brother but his way, only to find that the game’s been rigged.
and it’s just…the appalled, horrified desperation in Loki’s face here, cracking through this sort of tired, resigned, “failed again.”
And that hug.
nope can’t do it still can’t
