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

Yeah, you I think you're jumping to conclusions there, since kid Loki defies Loki's plans off hostile take over, it's still Kid Loki, but it's now got some more old Loki flavorings. Notice that he did not put on the crown and cackle evilly. There's a lot of ways to read it, but I really don't think "Old Loki is now using Kid Loki as a meat puppet" fits.

Ya know, I wouldn't be surprised if Young Avengers first 12 issues weren't Kid Loki's suicide attempt to make sure the old him doesn't corrupt him completely.

Oh, honey; it's worst than that. Kid Loki doesn't say that he wins because he survives in old Loki. He says he wins because just by doing what he's doing Old Loki does doom himself to being what he has always been. That's why Old Loki loses. That's the bitterest of victory for Kid Loki.

(Though I wouldn't be surprised if Young Avengers did indeed bring about some subtlety to it).

Honestly, with Loki, nothing is cut and dried as far as I'm concerned.
