Last issue, Loki was bound and gagged by his older self... are we sure this isn't the slash fic he admitted to writing back in issue 1?

Anyway, King Loki is explaining his plan, and he has some unusual names for some of the most recent adventures. Plus there's a marvelous call-back to Simonson's final issue.

Three panels from from this week's "Loki: Agent of Asgard" #12.

Context is... For Asgard! For Midgard! For Myself! )

In the aftermath of AXIS, Loki is the Hero Of Asgard no more. But one change remains: The God of Lies can only ever tell the truth. Now, Loki’s brother, the Odinson, visits his apartment, to talk of cabbages, kings... and Kid Loki. This is it.

"To Doctor Doom, gods are to be overcome. I see Doom as someone who skim-read Nietzsche in college and decided that he is the Overman, that he's crossed the bridge that is humanity and overcome it. In his own eyes, he is, to all intents and purposes, a God - and we'll see that some of subjects feel the same way. So when he looks at Loki, who was born into godhood, there's the contempt the self-made man feels for the man who inherited his power." -- Al Ewing

Axis is probably my least favorite event in ages thanks to the lame twist of "It's opposite day!" being the main takeaway. However, bad events are often a time when good writers shine; Starman came out of Zero Hour and Thunderbolts couldn't have existed without Heroes Reborn. And so we have Al Ewing's take on an inverted Loki, and issue 8 features him doing something utterly hilarious.

But first, the greatest terrible villain brag ever )

"Luckily, what James Robinson is up to dovetails perfectly with my own themes - Doom, like Loki, is trying to be a better person. (Or at least trying to look like a better person.) " -- Al Ewing

Hi folks!

MC2 (Marvel Comics 2) was Tom DeFalco's baby, spun off from an issue of "What If?" where Peter and Mary Jane's daughter May "Mayday" Parker inherited some of her father's powers and became Spider-Girl. It was meant to appeal to younger readers (but not children as such) by featuring old-school superheroics with newer characters.

(The same idea of attracting newer readers later gave us the Ultimate universe.)

The story took place in the modern day, but with the then-current events in the main Marvel Universe having taken place fifteen years before. Most of the older superheroes had retired or gone missing, so it was up to a new generation to save the world.

Seven pages of twenty-three, plus one from the preview of J2.

Second Coming! )

"It's something fairly important to me on a personal level -- the idea of learning how to be yourself, to accept yourself, to not let other people's ideas of you define who you are. I think that's something that's important to a lot of our readers as well. Unfortunately, it's a more difficult proposition for a fictional character, especially in a medium that trends so strongly towards nostalgia. There's a lot of forward momentum in comics, but it's always hard-won and you never quite know what'll stick, so the stakes for Loki are real and fairly high." -- Al Ewing

'How the truth can hurt -- and how it can be used as a weapon -- is a theme that seems so obvious now that I can't believe I didn't intend to have it in there from the start. I mean, In "Loki: AoA" the truth is literally a sword, for goodness' sake. I have no idea where my mind was.' -- Al Ewing
