I Heart Characters! is a weekly meme hosted by Dani @ Perspective of a Writer to showcase our book blogger love for characters! Each week she’ll supply a topic and you’ll supply the character. Post on whatever day suits you, about characters from whatever media you love (books, movies, K-dramas, television, manga, anime, webtoons, whatever!) and link up on Thursday so YOU and others can blog hop and share the character love. ♡

 This week is A Minor Character Who Deserves Their Own Story, and the puny asgardian that has ALWAYS needed one is LOKI. He is the one who always wanted to be king, unlike Thor, who runs away to another planet at the very mention of ruling. When he was finally king, he promoted the arts and culture, staying at peace.


 It doesn’t make any sense why no one in Asgard wants Loki to be king. He’s a great king! 


 Loki did get his own comic book series, but there’s only three of them. They star a younger version of Loki, trying to redeem himself through good misdeeds. For every good misdeed he does, a bad deed from his past will be erased from history. 

DIG056328_1._SX312_QL80_TTD_ There is no Loki movie, although he does get more time as the Marvel universe progresses. 

Why there should be a Loki Movie:

  • Loki is so much more interesting than the “heroes”, he’s flawed, he’s evil, but also a good person, and he has killed people and gotten away with it. The average hero causes billions of dollars in destruction during every movie, and chalks it up to whatever villain they fought.
  • Loki is motivated; he wants recognition as a son of Odin, he wants Thor’s respect and love, he wants to survive. Most motivators are rarely so complex in the Marvel universe, they just want to fix their hands, they want to be avengers, etc. while Loki struggles to be accepted as a person.
  • Loki is sexier than the heroes, rivaling only Doctor Strange.


How much do you need a Loki movie? (Don’t tell me about Infinity War, I’m finally seeing it this weekend)

  1. Hahahaha Love this Tanya! Loki is one of those characters that I didn’t think about at all until Tom Hiddleston swept in to portray him and WOWED me out of the theater! I admit that he makes the best villain because he IS motivated and a daddy’s love is a great reason to get things on. ❤️ There have been some recent books with villains as the protagonists so why not a movie too?! I say YES!

    1. Not sure why they haven’t done it yet. It would be weird for anyone else to put this much beauty in a character and leave him in the background, but this is Marvel. Marvel likes fluffy protagonists.

  2. First I adore your gif! perfect and one I had not seen so far about Loki (yet I used some about him trust me). Second I love a good villain, one in shades of grey. I chose a “villain” too so…kinship!
