Spoilers for Season 1 of Loki. Available now on Disney+.
With the recent slate of Marvel television shows dropping onto Disney+, it is safe to say that season 1 of Loki has been the most well-received entry thus far. Of course, this should come as no surprise to anyone familiar with the MCU, as the aptly named God of Mischief has been a fan favorite and enjoyed a comfortable tenure as a villain and anti-hero in previous films.
Therefore, we have decided to compile 5 things that Marvel fans loved about the series below (in no particular order).
1. The Introduction of the Multiverse
For the past few years or so, we have been teased time and time again about the inclusion of the Marvel multiverse, particularly with the introduction of Doctor Strange into the MCU, the optics of time travel discussed in Avengers: Endgame, and the subtle yet not so subtle teases in Spiderman: Far From Home (though the last one was a lie fabricated by Quentin Beck a.k.a. Mysterio).
Finally, however, season 1 of Loki confirms the existence of the multiverse right off the bat, and with the events that unfold in the finale, the possibilities of more multiverse-related stories are now endless.
Or more specifically, Agent Mobius, in the series, played by the ever-charming Owen Wilson, won over audiences’ hearts as arguably the only TVA employee without a stick up his rear end. His often profound philosophical conversations with Loki give the latter a newfound perspective on his life, indirectly causing the two to become friends in an organic and thoroughly enjoyable way.
3. Tom Hiddleston
It would be obvious to conclude that a Loki show without Tom Hiddleston as the demigod himself would create a gaping vacuum for the show’s narrative. Thankfully, the actor does reprise his role in phenomenal fashion, this time giving fans a more in-depth and layered approach to his portrayal of the character, making his performance a truly engaging experience overall for viewers.
4. Classic Loki
Richard E. Grant’s fantastic performance as one of the many variants of the God of Mischief, referred to as Classic Loki in the credits, was a perfect addition to the show’s already larger-than-life narrative. Although his character’s appearance was arguably an ephemeral one in the show, Classic Loki nevertheless became one of the most memorable characters from season 1.
5. Gator Loki
There is not much that can be said about this specific variant of Loki in the multiverse, other than it being a whimsical version of the demigod that, despite not being integral to the narrative as a whole, was an adorable inclusion that fans enjoyed, and are most certainly looking forward to seeing again.
And, that is our list!
