Loki is an American television series created by Michael Waldron for the streaming service Disney+, based on Marvel Comics featuring the character of the same name. Set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), it shares continuity with the films of the franchise and takes place after the events of the film Avengers: Endgame (2019), in which an alternate version of Loki created a new timeline. Loki is produced by Marvel Studios, with Waldron serving as head writer. Loki premiered on June 9, 2021, with its first season concluding on July 14, consisting of six episodes. It is part of Phase Four of the MCU. The first season has received positive reviews, with praise for the performances and visuals.
Loki is arrested by the Time Variance Authority (TVA) when he creates a new timeline after escaping from the Battle of New York with the Tesseract in 2012.The TVA resets the timeline, and this “variant” Loki stands trial in front of Judge Ravonna Renslayer for crimes against the “Sacred Timeline”. Loki blames the situation on the Avengers, who had traveled back in time to 2012, but Renslayer says their actions were meant to happen unlike Loki’s escape. Agent Mobius M. Mobius takes Loki to the Time Theater to review his past misdeeds and question his history of hurting people. He reveals that Loki, in his intended future, inadvertently causes the death of his adoptive mother Frigga. Loki attempts to escape, but gives up after realizing that the TVA’s power exceeds that of the Infinity Stones. He returns to the Time Theater and watches more future events, including his own death at the hands of Thanos. He then agrees to help Mobius hunt another Loki variant who has killed several TVA agents and stolen their timeline-resetting charges.
Tom Hiddleston As LOKI
Tom Hiddleston as Loki:
Thor’s adopted brother and the god of mischief, based on the Norse mythological deity of the same name.This is an alternate, “time variant” version of Loki who created a new timeline in Avengers: Endgame (2019) beginning in 2012. Because of this, he has not gone through the events of Thor: The Dark World (2013) or Thor: Ragnarok (2017), which reformed the previously villainous character before his death in Avengers: Infinity War (2018). Head writer Michael Waldron compared Loki to Apple Inc. co-founder Steve Jobs since both were adopted and love being in control. Hiddleston expressed interest in returning to the role in order to explore Loki’s powers, particularly his shapeshifting, which plays into the series’ exploration of identity. Loki’s sex in the series is denoted by the Time Variance Authority as “fluid”, referencing the character’s genderfluidity in Marvel Comics that had previously been speculated on for the MCU given his shapeshifting ability.Waldron said he was aware of how many people identify with Loki’s genderfluidity and were “eager for that representation”. The series also reveals Loki as bisexual, becoming the first major queer character in the MCU.The series explores more of Loki’s magic abilities, such as his telekinesis and magic blasts.
CREATION OF MULTIVERSE IN EPISODE 6
In Loki’s ending, the answer to this puzzle is provided, as Loki and the Lady Loki variant Sylvie meet He Who Remains; the creator of the TVA and crafter of the Sacred Timeline, who quickly explains that he made both in order to stop a multiverse wide war. Despite telling the protagonist duo that killing him will leave another of his variants in his place, Sylvie murders He Who Remains – a decision that, as the show’s ending reveals, places Marvel villain Kang in charge of the TVA and thus the MCU timeline, seemingly.
