Journey into Mystery #645


The remnant of the previous Loki appears before kid Loki, telling him Mephisto has seized the Crown of Fear. With it he will unite hell and plunge the universe into an age of darkness. There is only one way to stop him.

If kid Loki sacrifices himself the crown will vanish and the adult Loki will take his place. Journey into Mystery was all a scheme. Loki felt the world wouldn't let him change so he set up the kid to earn everyones trust so Loki can eventually replace the child and live a life free from his past. Old loki gives the kid three conversations before it happens they are touching but page limits.

At last kid Loki stands again before his past self

Beautiful, touching and sad.

I'm cancelling my preorder of Young Avengers though, I can't read old Loki run around in young Loki's skin

it might not be that.... Adult Loki might try to be Kid Loki... or there might actually be a part of Kid Loki still alive in him....

though one thing i did notice though, did the crows change places? meaning instead of being a representation of the part of Adult loki in kid loki's mind did he become kid loki's portion in adult loki's mind?

because if he killed the bird, then shouldn't that mean the part of Adult Loki is gone?

True, but he ate part of it, to me that means he took part of it into himself. That can be read in multiple ways, but I don't think Adult Loki took over Kid Loki entirely. Perhaps, not even at all.

Wasn't there something about Ikol being in Kid Loki’s head all the time? So he was part of him after all? So isn’t this like someone with split personalities merging in a single one?

The magpie's gone. Kid Loki ate it, thus overwriting himself with Adult Loki. Kid Loki is vanished entirely, and there's no thread of him able to come back; the setup was deliberately made to keep from having anything to hold out hope for.

He's gone, and he'll remain gone. And I can only wish that wasn't so.

Actually, good news, it seems! On Kieron Gillen's tumblr, he's said that the end of YA's first arc coincides with the end of JiM, which would mean that the kid Loki in the first arc at least is the one we know.

me thinks Kid Loki may have some tricks up his sleeve. either he made the Young Avengers to find a way to save himself, OR he made them in order to STOP his older self

That would be great. How would he know his older self was plotting against him, though?

On further reflection, I may have misinterpreted the tweet: https://twitter.com/kierongillen/status/261756500022800384
I thought that he meant in-universe, YA's first arc ended with JiM, but it seems like he means the release dates of the comics. Pooey. :(

wow, really? I... do not know what to think of it. It sounds uncannily cruel.

I just realized that I might have misinterpreted his tweet. Here's the whole twitter conversation: https://twitter.com/kierongillen/status/261756500022800384

I thought KG was saying that in the MCU, YA's first arc ended with JiM, but it seems like he was referring to the release dates of the comics. Sorry about that.

Ah yes.

That sounds less weird.
