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

Reminds me of the Doctor Who episodes "Human Nature" and "Family of Blood". "John Smith" so desperately wants to stay human, and is horrified by the prospect of dying and becoming the kind of man who didn't think he could ever fall in love.

Kid!Loki has it even worse. At least the Doctor could pin some of the blame on the Family of Blood for forcing his hand. Here, Kid!Loki has no one to blame but his own past self.

I just hope Loki remembers what it was like being a hero. Maybe that will be enough to change him for real.

this is what i am thinking... imean the notes in "young Avengers" make me think there is still a part of him inside him.
