L is for Loki

"So I am no more than another stolen relic, locked up here until you might have use of me?" 
-Loki 


Loki... he's an evil villain with class, style, an amazing voice, and did I mention he was handsome?


I'm one of those nerds who randomly likes and hates Loki.  There's something about the way he almost feels guilty for what he's done.  A few scenes in the Avengers, such as when Loki tells Thor there's no way to stop it, I feel Loki almost looks like he regrets it.  (Though in the next moment, you can see he doesn't.)  Loki had a sucky childhood.  He was lied to about his parentage and always in the shadow of his brother.  That had to suck.  I think Loki's character is best summed up by Tom Hiddleston --


Simply put, Loki never thought of himself as a villain.  He wanted the attention so badly, part of him stopped caring how he got it.  Loki became the villain when he could have been so much more.

One of my favorite quotes from Loki
What did you think of Loki's character?  Did you feel any empathy or compassion for him?

I wrote 320 words.  Definitely not good, but I enjoyed the first night of the women's retreat. At first, I felt like the youngest person in the room, but it was nice to talk to some older women about life in general and in patience about waiting for a husband. :)

  1. I love Loki. I mean, he's evil, but he does it so well! And you do kind of feel sorry for him, what with his sucky childhood and all.

  2. Strangely, I was only watching Thor this morning. No sympathy; lots of people have equally sucky childhoods and turn out great. Nah, he's a product of his own choices.

  3. In the comics, Loki was pretty much a p.i.t.a. Hiddleston, though, really made him awesome and one of the best parts of The Avengers.

  4. I didn't have compassion for him, but I thought he was a great villain.

  5. Loki is one of my favorite villains, and I think it's because there are different levels to his character. Plus, Tom Hiddleston's acting for that role is pretty amazing :)

    Also, I've awarded you here. :)

  6. I found that scene with Loki and the Hulk in The Avengers hilarious (you know the one I mean).

    Chippy

  7. I think Loki makes a fantastic villain, and I love the relationship between him and Thor throughout both "Thor" and "The Avengers."

    Also, the Hulk/Loki scene was quite possibly the most cathartic thing I've ever seen on a movie screen.

    (Is it a bad thing that, when a friend of mine was identifying which character from "The Avengers" the people in our group would be, she pegged me as Loki? Nah...)
