    Yeah, the impression I'm getting from his comments about keeping kid!Loki from turning evil is that we're preserving the now-canon that under certain conditions, Loki had it in him to be entirely...

    Does "they" really mean us? That'd be silly. All of us reading JiM wanted Loki to change and lil!Loki to win, I would assume. I thought "they" were the Marvel folks, future writers, etc who wouldn't...

    Good for him. Good for little!Loki. It's good to know that this came from a place of protecting the character, rather than a place of just wanting a hopeless shock ending, or just wanting old!Loki to...

    I feel like there's a lot of support for this in the text prior to the finale, but I also feel like it was squashed in the final issue with the comment about Ikol being a completely separate thing,...

    If I sent Gillen anything, it would be praise, not dead magpies. :P I think he wrote a wonderful story, and I'm very happy that I read it. I don't cosplay, and I will read comics, but won't be...

    No, she's Hela. There's a closed timeloop there now... she gets sent back to the past, and then grows to become Hela. Which is interesting, because it means there's one person in our current...

    Aside from the gorgeous, out-with-a-bang finale (and isn't the Eliot allusion funny at the beginning? I would absolutely not characterize this as going out "with a whimper". I mean, aside from...

    That's lovely, about Hela. Leah growing up to be Hela was one of the unambiguously happy parts of this issue for me. Very satisfying.

    I'm sorry you're making assumptions about me or my motives; this certainly shouldn't be that sort of conversation. I'm just discussing the story as I read it, nothing more or less.

    I'm not forgetting it at all. I'm just... not really buying it as an out. I don't see why the sacrifice would work if little!Loki was still in there somewhere. Yeah, old!Loki could've been lying...

    Wow, what a heartbreaker. Gorgeous art... so glad she was able to do this whole issue. And little!Loki's courageous, stoic helplessness as he tried to make the last few accommodations that he...

    I hate to say so, but I think that's almost certainly an expression of horror and despair.

    Yeah, I definitely think it's going to be ambiguous. Gotta keep the tension somewhere... half the fun of Everything Burns were the parts where I was sure, just absolutely sure, that Loki had turned,...

    I tend to think old!Loki's going to get his way and little!Loki is going to lose his story. That said, it doesn't have to all be bad for him. He's always been both old!Loki and little!Loki, he's just...

    I think the reason he tends toward these elaborate schemes is simply that he doesn't have any other skills. He's not powerful like Thor or the other Asgardian warriors. And yet, he has huge events...

    There would be something in it for her if Loki's being straight about wanting to destroy the Asgardians, but I think her help in that aim would be superfluous at this stage. I think it's plausible...

    Why would he need Hela's help, though, if he's gone darkside? Surtur and Leah are doing a good job on their own, and Loki himself has just gotten Thor out of the way. He'd only need Hela's alliance...

    There are certainly hints that can go either way, but I keep coming back to his words to Ikol - "I can play a villain as well as anyone." Yeah, I think he's angry, and I think he has a reason to be....

    Yep, I agree with this prediction, and I'm not at all sure anyone's gonna know what he did. They'll probably just think they won the war when the bad guys hit a run of bad luck. Loki had best leave...

    Not to take her side or anything, but maybe new Loki IS insane. ;) (That could actually be horribly depressing - here's hoping they don't go there. But has any other character ever interacted with...
