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

This. All of this, always this. He's gone, and I wish he wasn't, but for the sake of the precious Status Quo he has to be- and damned if I'm paying for Lokistuff from now on. He was what the Thor franchise had been sorely needing, but they think he's done enough to hit the reset button yet again.

It's the core issue I have with comic books. The whole point is to get us to CARE about the characters so we'll buy their stories, but the industry-standard is to then demonstrate all the reasons why we shouldn't have bothered! If it isn't ridiculous mischaracterizations, it's the meaningless death of the ones we came to read about in the first place.

With a few rare exceptions, it feels like an exercise in futility, where you wind up grateful that a character you loved was at least given a graceful pointless send-off.
