One mind blowing concept for ye mortal brains.



From the article:

"Hela and her infernal realm played a major role in the first arc of "Journey Into Mystery." While Loki was there setting schemes in motion to take down the Serpent he came face with one of Hela's handmaidens, a girl about his own age named Leah who assisted him in his assault on the Serpent's headquarters. Now that Loki is working for the Asgardian All-Mother, Leah will serve as his partner and reluctant BFF.



"In issue #631 Hela told Leah to stay with Loki and help him take care of the tasks he needs to complete. She's keeping the reasons for Leah's assignment a secret though. So now 'JIM' will follow the adventures of Loki and Leah as they save Asgard and do things like drink milkshakes," Gillen explained. "Leah is now Loki's best friend much to her chagrin. In issue #631 she lets out a big sigh because her 'unlife' is not treating her well. She lives in a dirty great hole in the ground. The interaction between her and Loki [is] very charming. They're two kids and they have that 'don't like each other, but like each other' dynamic. Their banter is a lot of fun.



"She's also handy. She's much more capable than Loki is. Loki has no magic at all while Leah can actually cast some spells," Gillen continued. "They're both smart and capable of delivering great one liners, but their motivations are so different. Loki is so mischievous and Leah is like her mistress in that she wants to do a proper job. It's almost kind of like Susie and Calvin in 'Calvin & Hobbes.'" the writer said with a laugh."






That must be one might jolly laugh.


Snot nosed punk teen gods? Are they forgetting who that is?

Reminds me of Disney's Hercules...

"Here is the kid with superhuman strength who can crush boulders between his fingers! What a freak! Let's bully him!"

At least the idiots who tormented Carrie didn't know that she was dangerous.

Sometimes you just think "those people deserve to be punished because THEIR STUPIDITY HURTS" :,)

Eh, Marvel Asgardians can apparently spend centuries continuously forgetting that Loki tried to kill them last week, so that this week's betrayal comes as a complete surprise. Now that he's chibi, it's pretty in character for them to forget that he was ever a significant threat or ever will be again.

I suppose most gods have to suffer from anterograde social amnesia, so that they can reenact their myths over and over again. It's like the Norse gods in Top 10:

"...you killed Balder! You bastards!"
"Hooray, Balder came back to life! What should we do now?"
"Let's play the throw-dangerous-shit-at-Balder game!"
"Yay!"
"...you killed Balder! You bastards!"

and so on.

Loki and Leah as they save Asgard and do things like drink milkshakes

It's the *drink milkshakes* that makes me go, wow, this is everything I ever wanted in a comic!

Wacky adventures of Loki and Leah = yes please.

I really loved it in the last issue when Loki was telling Leah not to worry, he'd kit out her dirty awful hole in the ground. With important things. Like bedding. And books. Loki knows what's important in life.

I want to draw a picture of Leah and Loki (we don't even type the "Kid!" anymore!) walking away from an explosion, wearing sunglasses and drinking milkshakes while "JOURNEY INTO MYSTERY" is formed from the explosion.
. . .
I need to learn how to draw.

HOW LOKI STOLE CHRISTMAS is the vibe I'm getting from this, but it still would sound like a jolly adventure.


Also, I'm all for Loki and Leah and shenanigans TYVM MARVEL MERRY CHRISTMAS.
