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 liked kid!Loki and would have liked to keep him a little longer. But he was always going to be temporary.I suppose I'm the only one who liked him at least in part because he was temporary ...

(Kid!Loki was my only reason for being interested in Young Avengers, too. But it was a very tentative reason, as the whole team-up just sounded ... not very interesting to me. With this change, it becomes a whole different story to me, and one that holds much more appeal as a story.)

I feel like that story was basically already told in Mighty Avengers.

it's still Kid Loki in at least the first YA arc.
