Loki: Agent of Asgard #11 Review by (February 22, 2015)
Comments: On the cover, AGENT OF ASGARD has a question mark after it. When the gods returned from Ragnarok Loki stole the body of Sif as his; this was in THOR (2007 series) #4-602—which was only twelve issues, despite what it looks like. The title is a line from “Let It Go,” the immensely popular song from Disney’s FROZEN.

Review: The latest chapter in what could be called LOKI DISASSEMBLED ups the stakes quite a bit. Everyone but Odin is against the charming young trickster turned pathetic exile. And the story will only get worse as it goes on. Yet there is a hint of a loophole in our (anti-)hero’s fate in Sif’s lack of recognition of him as the real Loki. Al Ewing has ably continued the promise of Kieron Gillen’s total revision of Loki and I can’t wait to see what comes next.

Loki: Agent of Asgard #11 Synopsis by Peter Silvestro

Thor has dragged Loki to Asgardia to face judgment for the Crime That Will Not Be Forgiven--the murder of his younger self. As one, the Asgardians turn away from him, with Volstagg backhanding him when he gets too close. Only Lady Sif looks back, since Loki once stole her body she is familiar with the God of Evil--but this one she doesn’t know….

 

One of Odin’s ravens warns Loki that Ego-Death is soon coming to him. Loki enters the palace in search of Odin but finds only the All-Mother Freyja. She demands to know if the accusation is true; Loki affirms it and denounces her for her betrayal of her willing agent Loki. She exiles him from Asgard and goes to the dungeon to find that King Loki is also gone….

 

Walking in a place between the worlds, Loki encounters Odin. The All-Father assures him that he is Odin’s child but also that the blood on his hands must be purged by fire. With final encouragement from Odin, Loki is consumed in flames…

 

…and returned to his Manhattan apartment where Verity Willis is looking for him. He tries to explain to her but King Loki appears and lists all of the younger Loki’s crimes until Verity is disgusted with he friends and storms out. One more thing: King Loki imprisons his younger self in a chair and forces him to watch the story of how the younger Loki will become the evil one….
