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

I thought this was a great ending to Gillen's Journey into Mystery

The other Leah growing up to become Hela was really cool

So Mini!Loki's love interest grew up to be his daughter? How Olympian.

In a manner of speaking. I found it a very interesting and poetic take on the myth. Loki is her "father" in the sense that he technically created her, but she's not the fruit of his loins or anything like that. Gillen rather elegantly solved the long-standing Marvel riddle of how Hela seemed to be older and more powerful than her purported father while still lending some truth to the ancient mythology.
