I’ve had this heart-wrenching thought banging around in my brain for a few days now, and I’m sorry that I’m going to share it with you now.

If Loki’s IW death is real, I refuse to believe he was simply stupid enough to think he could attack Thanos with a dagger and win. If it was real, Loki wanted to die. This was just his latest suicide attempt, and this time it finally worked.

In the first Thor movie, he let go- thinking falling through the void would take his life. But he fell straight into Thanos’ hands. (And I’ve already mentioned how I believe Thanos may have killed Loki more than once while he was torturing Loki)

In Avenger’s, Loki provoked every single one of the Avengers in the way he knew would piss them off the most. Was he secretly trying to see if they could kill him? He did make the comment to Thor- “ The humans think us immortal- shall we test that?” Maybe he genuinely wanted to know.

Then in TTDW, during his talk with Odin, he says- “If I’m for the ax, then for mercy’s sake just swing it.” It’s almost as if he’s begging Odin to kill him rather than lock him in the dungeons with… Himself. Afterwards, Loki does “die,” and if you take the fact that he was avenging his mother out of the equation, that death was just as ridiculous as the one in IW. He sees Thor being beaten down by Kurse, and he runs straight over, impales Kurse and… Just stands there. It’s almost as if he’s ASKING Kurse to do what he did.

So if you think about it in these terms, his death in IW only had to be good enough to trick Thor into believing it wasn’t a suicide. He killed two birds with one stone. He gave his life for his brother and finally, finally found some peace.

I’m not saying I believe this. It’s just something my asshole brain has been hurting me with lately. Cry with me.

Makes sense. :/

Loki survives Infinity War.





I invite you to join me in repeating this positive thought every day for the next six months.

Of course he does
Marvel knows how things are in here
So unless they want themselves killed by an outraged fangirl crowd…
Remember, we’re Loki’s Army


Reporting for duty!

They were going to have Loki die for keeps in TDW. Then his appearance at SDCC got such a reaction Marvel realized they could make more money off him, so they threw together his completely illogical survival. I wish they’d let him rest in peace.



What if Thor 2 ends with Loki on the ground dying. Thor and friends are around him and he’s just died redeeming himself. Thor cries and finally he leaves, walking off while the camera is zoomed in on Loki. Then, once Thor is gone Loki’s body disappears because it was just a duplicate. 

Actually that would be fucking epic.

Dude. The post was made before TDW came out. Nerdyworld so called it.






Very interesting theories; I’ll have to bat them around for a while.

An alternate theory that’s slowly been developing in my head has to do with Loki’s potential powers as a jotun. We know the jotnar can create ice and freezing cold at will, and we know they can survive without harm extremes of cold temperatures and contact with frozen substances that would seriously hurt unprotected aesir and the like. We also see that they don’t go for much in the way of armor or protective gear despite living in a world full of, not only cold, but also brittle and sharp/jagged rock, ice, etc. One imagines that even with care, and leaving aside war, they must suffer a certain rate of injury simply from their environment. Yet they don’t take many obvious steps to prevent this – and they aren’t stupid. So what gives?

My theory is that, beyond externally-applied healing magic, most or all jotnar have to some degree an innate and instinctive capacity to temporarily cool down or even freeze a small area of their body that has suffered damage/trauma in a manner that for a very limited time will halt the damage and so enable them to get to safety or apply healing magic. The cold acts as a preservative/stasis mechanism and prevents further blood loss and, as they are jotnar, does not itself cause them harm. This would enable them to survive otherwise-severe or even lethal wounds provided they are not immediately lethal and the extent of the damage not too massive – for instance, being crushed under a landslide would certainly kill, but a single stab to the chest or abdomen would likely be survivable so long as it didn’t hit the heart, etc.

Now Loki of course wouldn’t be likely to know this, but if it’s an instinctive physiological reaction that’s part of how a jotun experiences shock following bodily trauma, he wouldn’t have to consciously know about it for it to kick in. He’d probably be wondering what the hell was going on, and/or just assume that’s what it feels like to by dying from being run through with a fucking sword. (He certainly looks and sounds like he genuinely believes he’s dying, and I include his body language there.) So he was in shock and in pain, his body cooling, quite legitimately thinking he was dying, and lapsed into unconsciousness briefly. Only to wake again and find himself alone, alive, his wound somehow…halted long enough for him to heal himself. He may or may not have begun to figure it out right then, but being Loki he would certainly have realized the opportunity he’s been presented with. So he heals himself, gets up, and figures that, instead of going back to Thor so he can put Loki back in his little box, he might as well make the most of being alive and free and goes to deal with his, and the Nine Realms’, biggest problem after Malekith (who he’ll correctly assume Thor is going after). And so the moment of his ‘death’ itself need not be a deliberate trick at all.

That’s very similar to my thoughts about the matter.

Of all the moments that made me hate Thor, I think his words when he thought Loki was dying infuriate me the most. It’s not his worst moment, far from it, but it’s perhaps the most enraging.

I mean, after he’s spent the entire movie being a shithead to Loki in every possible way, threatening him, beating him up, making it impossible for him to defend himself, cussing out their mother for not giving Thor all her attention, Loki’s been quixotic enough to save Thor’s worthless miserable life. And Thor tells him “It’s okay” (yeah, okay for you, asshole) and promises, “I will tell Father that you died with honor.”

Is even Thor stupid enough to think Loki still gives a shit about Odin’s opinion? Now that Odin’s behaved vilely enough to shatter even Loki’s Stockholm Syndrome?

And we know from the first movie that Thor’s always lied to Odin and everyone else about Loki’s achievements. Loki would save Thor’s sorry ass with his magic and Thor would ridicule him for it and brag about how he “fought his way through a hundred warriors”. For a thousand years, Thor admitting to Odin that Loki had achieved something would have been the most wonderful gift he could have given.

So when does he do it? After Loki has no more desire for the regard of that evil old man. When he believes Loki is about to die and will thus never again be competition for Thor.

I always want to punch Thor in the face, but that moment is when I want to punch him the most.
