Loki, the cunning god of mischief and half-brother to Thor, has always been a fan favorite in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Unfortunately, he met his untimely demise at the hands of Thanos in Infinity War. But don’t worry Loki lovers, the man lives on in the comics.
Marvel Comics announced that a new Loki comic series will launch in July. This new series will be a spin-off of the War for the Realms story arc, in which Thor was caught in the middle of a massive war between all the ten realms. Asgard fell, Mjolnir was destroyed and Loki gets eaten alive by his own father, the King of the Frost Giants.
Since the new Loki series takes place after the War for the Realms, which hasn’t finished its run yet, it is unclear how Loki survived his death. Marvel isn’t telling, so we’ll just have to read it and find out.
Here is the cover of the first issue featuring Loki and Mjolnir. How Mjolnir got restored, and the reason Loki is holding it, looks like another mystery just waiting to be solved:
Today is International Women’s Day, and I think its fairly appropriate to give some props to some of the most inspiring women from comic books. These are women who—with or without superpowers—inspire young girls (and those of us who are still young at heart). Real heroes are those who are willing to sacrifice everything for the betterment of others, those who are strong, and brave, and have heart and hope through the darkest of times. These are just a few of the endless inspiring women who encompass these ideals of heroism… and a few of their most iconic, empowering quotes!
