The Trickster God has many faces and forms. Loki Episode 2 just proved it. Here are all the confirmed Loki Variants we saw in Episode 2 of Loki.
This Loki variant is the protagonist in the Loki series. He was created during the events of Avengers: Endgame. the Avengers went back int time, specifically to the events of The Avengers (2012). A minor mishap led to that timeline’s Loki escaping with the Space Stone. Loki L1130 is yet t0 face many of the events Loki has faced in the MCU. Odin’s death, Frigga’s murder, the destruction of Asgard, release of Hela from Niflheim, and his subsequent death at the hands of Thanos never happened to L1130.
There have been multiple Gods of Mischiefs across all mythologies. The Vikings are not the only one to have a trickster deity. The ancient Greeks worshipped the Greek Gods of Mount Olympus. And they had their own Trickster God. Pan was the son of Hermes, another mischievous deity. Pan is the God of the Wild. He has goat legs, horns, and a beard. Loki Variant L8914 cannot possibly be a Greek God since Loki is only over a thousand years old. But looks like Loki based his appearance on the Greek God. He also happens to be wearing a President Loki badge.
We are not sure if this is an actual Loki variant or just Loki L1130 after his escape from the TVA. President Loki is obviously based on the story line Vote Loki. It was a comic book issue where Loki ran for President. His entire campaign was based on one truth – that instead of lying behind the people’s backs like the rest of the politicians, he would lie to their faces. His campaign became surprisingly popular. President Loki probably won the elections and now leads an army of ruffians in a post apocalyptic world.
Frost Giant Loki
The events of the first Thor movie proved that Loki is not Odin’s biological son. He is actually the son of the Frost Giant Laufey. In Episode 2 of Loki, Mobius calls Loki an “ice runt” implying he was terribly undersized compared to the average Frost Giant. Maybe this variant of Loki totally embraced his Frost Giant heritage after undergoing a path of villainy and evil. He is now the ruler of Jotunheim and thus a powerful Loki variant in himself.
Tour De France Loki
Loki L1247 did not want to conquer the nine realms. All he craved for was recognition and acknowledgement for being the greatest long distance cyclist there ever was. Tour De France Loki is seen wearing his signature yellow and blue in a cyclist’s uniform and holding the Coupe Omnisports. That’s the trophy given to the winner of the Tour De France. In 2018, the trophy was stolen but was never recovered. Maybe Loki stole the trophy and went back to Asgard, claiming he won it fair and square.
The Asgardians were heralded as Gods during the Age of the Vikings. Loki L7803 is a nod to the Loki version that exists in the pages of Mighty Thor. In Mighty Thor #6, a Viking warrior named Bodolf prays to Thor for victory in battle. After he loses, he prays to Loki instead as an act of revenge. Loki comes swinging and gives him a way to become stronger – the blood of a dragon. Bodolf does so, drinking the dragon’s blood and becoming strong enough to defy Thor. The price Bodolf pays for this act is losing his humanity in the process.
Perhaps the most bizarre Loki variant is Loki L6752. Since the God of Mischief is always looking for more power, he might have been interested in the Hulk. The Jade Giant has an abundance of raw, brute strength. This version of Loki sports a Hulk like physique with a yellowish-green tinge. Instead of a helmet, this Loki has actual horns sprouting out of its head. Maybe Loki used Asgardian Magic to merge himself with the Hulk, gaining the Green Goliath’s legendary strength and durability.
The big reveal at the end of Loki Episode 2 was Lady Loki. Or is it even Lady Loki in the first place. She has been a thorn at the TVA’s side, forcing the latter to enlist the help of another Loki variant. Lady Loki is certainly working for the bigger picture. Having bombed the Sacred Timeline, who knows what she’s up to next!!
