Review: “Loki: Agent of Asgard #10”

If you’re new to my Loki: Agent of Asgard reviews, I do them in the form of live reactions, paying particular attention to how Loki’s genderfluidity/assumed pansexuality is portrayed. I’m behind and trying to catch up.

In keeping with tradition: Yaay, Verity’s back! And it looks like she and Loki may be able to patch things up quicker than I thought.

And they’re going to save Sigurd and Lorelei, who were unfairly punished last issue!

THIS IS WHY VERITY IS THE BEST OHMYGAWD

Thor — now called Odinson since he no longer possesses the power of Thor — arrives at the apartment to talk with Loki. It’s a good conversation, serious. And Loki reveals he can’t lie anymore, as some kind of aftereffect of the Axis transformation. He can’t even let a lie stand, he has to correct it. So he tells Verity and Odinson the story of how he, a copy of the old Loki, killed Kid Loki and took his body, but is now trying to atone and change his fate.

That’s when things go horribly wrong, because Odinson still loves Loki and always has.

He beats the crap out of Loki and takes him to Asgard to suffer Odin’s justice. The whole scene is a wrench, it’s awful.

Final Thoughts

I want to believe this is all one of Loki’s schemes to get into Asgard and rescue Sigurd and Lorelei, like he said at the beginning. But I just don’t know. That last page… He’s in agony over Thor walking away. It’s terrible. And we already know from the last issue what kind of “justice” we can expect from Odin. (Just one more example of how effortlessly perfect the writing and planning are for this series…) I’m moving straight on to the next issue, so you can expect another review very soon!

  1. Are you planning to come back and review the rest of the series? I just found your blog today and have enjoyed reading your recaps (and it’s got me wanting to go back and re-read the comics from the begining!).

  2. This looks really good! I love the cover. 🙂 Also, I’m ridiculously curious as to why Green Arrow is in Asgard….

    1. Ha! That’s Fandral. He’s one of the Warriors Three, he’s had small roles in the Thor movies alongside Sif and Volstagg and Hogun. Those guys. He does look remarkably similar to Green Arrow though.
