Finally giving the MCU phase 4 its structure, Loki Season 1 was praised by fans for finally introducing the next big bad of Marvel, Kang the Conqueror. The story is a result of the Avengers meddling with time in Endgame, resulting in Loki becoming an anomaly.

The show also introduced Mobius, who is played by Owen Wilson. He is a TVA( Time Variance Authority ) agent who investigates especially dangerous variants, like the different variants of Loki.

Loki’s redemption arc

Even though the Loki from the original storyline redeemed himself only to get killed by Thanos, the variant from the Loki series hasn’t. He escaped from the Avengers after the battle of New York, preventing his original redemption arc from taking place.

In the series, we saw the character still redeem himself throughout the episodes as he learned about the mysteries of the TVA. He also tried to stop Sylvie from killing He Who Remains, upholding rules over free will, very unlike Loki.

Is Loki a Superhero now?

At the end of Loki season 1, we saw a variant of He Who Remains take over the TVA and Mobius forgetting everything about Loki. But the transcripts for season 2 shown at D23 hint at Mobius knowing who Loki is and affirms the character to be a good guy. The transcript follows:

Loki: I don’t want you to think I’m a bad guy in all this, Mobius.

Mobius: Who said you were?

Director Kate Herron and actor Owen Wilson both agreed that Robin Williams’ therapist character from Good Will Hunting was an inspiration in defining Mobius, as he mentors Loki into becoming a good guy.

Tom Hiddleston helped Owen Wilson prepare for his character by explaining the entire MCU, rather than letting him read the Marvel Comics.

The character of Loki had a redemption arc in Secret Wars comics too. He sacrifices himself to protect another character and joins the legions of gods to protect Asgard. Due to his actions, Loki is hailed as a hero by many including Odin, so we could see this happening in Avengers: Secret Wars too.

Loki is now streaming on Disney+.
