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 agree with all of this ^. To be honest, I expected a nice, low-key (forgive the pun) resolution. I was pretty sure that any stories about Loki after the end of Everything Burns might be enjoyable, but would still be dull compared to the JiM run. The ending was really painful well done and has a greater impact that if it had been done another way.

And who knows, maybe things aren't as clear as we think. Maybe it's not really the end. Maybe good things will happen in Young Avengers. Maybe?

the fact that KG is writing that, i have no doubt that Lil Loki still has a few tricks up his sleeve. :D

I certainly hope so! I have a feeling YA is going to be good. But until it comes out, I shall sit in tortured suspense.
