[[[|hide]]]*1 Description

Description EditEdit

Loki has a new helmet, depicting his iconic one seen in the films, and has Bruce Wayne's new head. He wears an earth green cape, grey legs with new printing, and has new torso printing to depict his armour, which continues onto his legs. He comes with a staff made of the staff part included in 7306 Golden Staff Guardians, and one of the new Ninjago sai blade pieces, and the Cosmic Cube (a 1x1 clear brick).

Loki is based on his appearance in The Avengers.

Background EditEdit

After slaying the King of the Frost giants Laufey in battle, Odin found a small Asgardian-sized child hidden within the primary stronghold of the Frost Giants. The child was Loki, and Laufey kept him hidden from his people, ashamed of his son's small size. Odin took the boy because he showed strength when Odin slew his father in combat and raised him as his son alongside his biological son Thor.

Throughout their childhood and into adolescence, Loki was resentful of the differences in which he and Thor were treated by the citizens of Asgard. The Asgardians valued great strength, tenacity, and bravery in battle above all things, and Loki was clearly inferior to his foster brother Thor in these areas. What he lacked in size and strength, however, he made up for in power and skill, particularly as a sorcerer.

During Thor's ceremony of becoming king of Asgard, three Frost Giants broke into Odin's vault to retrieve the Casket, an object of great power that once belonged to the Frost Giants. They were defeated by the Destroyer, but Thor's ceremony was interrupted and he decided use Bifrost to travel to Jotunheim to investigate the matter with their king. However, it ended in a huge battle and after he returned, his father Odin branded him reckless and foolish and banished him to Earth.

Loki soon descovered that he was in fact a Frost Giant himself, and had been disguised as a god. When Odin fell into a deep sleep, he became king temporarily and he commanded the Destroyer to go to Earth and kill Thor. This failed, and when Thor returned to Asgard, they had a climatic battle on the bridge, which ended in Loki letting himself fall, disappearing into the unknown.

In The Avengers, he returns with a huge army of aliens to destroy Earth.
