Anonymous asked: If you want to catch up on comic book Loki, then before you read Young Avengers, I'd recommend Journey Into Mystery 622-645 (Kieron Gillen's run), which is practically Loki's solo. It's fantastic and Loki's characterisation in Young Avengers is built up from there.
oh yeah, i do know journey into mystery! i just never get round to reading many comics. thanks for the rec!
a list of reasons i am excited for loki’s new solo series:
- "loki’s taking the role of asgard’s secret weapon, doing missions to secure the future of the realm”
- "a young man of stolen wealth and varied taste, with the universe as his oyster and a penchant for black nail polish"
- "might see thor discover loki’s secret"
- "loki’s got his own pad in new york, so we’ll be seeing him there a lot of the time, hanging with his big bruv, etcetera.”
- “naked shower scene”
- "loki has a beautiful bottom and we’ll be seeing plenty of it"
- "he can’t quite hate his brother any more — in fact, he’s learning to love him. they’re getting on better than they have in centuries."
- "i try to keep thor in civvies when he guest-stars"
Loki: Agent of Asgard sounds like the most fanservice-y book ever. And I, for one, will be buying it. BISEXUAL, BLACK NAIL POLISH-WEARING LOKI, LIVING IN A NEW YORK BACHELOR PAD AND DOING SECRET MISSIONS ON EARTH?? SIGN ME UP.
