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

Kid Loki's dead. I have no interest in reading Adult Loki in a Kid Loki skinsuit, and given that Kid Loki was potentially my only real reason for looking at Young Avengers, Marvel's lost that potential sale.

That's a fair point, though given the quality of Gillen's work on JiM, I'd say it's a bit premature to to assume the book won't be worth reading.

I'm not making any sort of judgment as to the quality of the story. There are simply no characters in the book that particularly interest me now, ergo...no real reason to read it.
