Which Is Your Favorite Variant of Loki?

Marvel’s god of mischief has taken on several forms – Earth’s Mightiest Show picks the best!

Loki has been a part of the Marvel Universe since 1962, but in all those decades, he – sometimes she – has taken on a number of different looks. To confuse? To frustrate? To delight? It’s Loki – is there really a definitive answer? On the latest episode of Earth’s Mightiest Show, hosts Langston Belton, Lorraine Cink, and Ryan “Agent M” Penagos all chose their favorite versions of Loki. And in this post, you can find the books where he’s sporting those looks on Marvel Unlimited!

Langston’s Pick: Teen Heartthrob Loki from YOUNG AVENGERS

Langston says this Loki has a “super slick look that I could totally see someone rocking in SoHo or the meat-packing district in New York City… maybe even with the horns,” which he says “show[s] off perfect hair and scruff. I love this Loki because it captures a modern Loki for the Instagram generation.”

Lorraine’s Pick: Lady Loki from THE MIGHTY AVENGERS

Lorraine says “the fiercest Loki is obviously Lady Loki,” which happened when “he inhabited the body of warrior goddess Sif.” Lorraine continues: “We know Loki does a seamless impression. Living for a big fur coat because she’s a baller, deep V JLo dress, and a horn crown … Even the mani is good.”

Ryan’s Pick: Multiverse Loki from the EARTH X trilogy

Ryan says, “Everyone on the planet gets transformed in this alternate reality story because Loki exists in many realities. Loki—ever the changeling—adopts an incredible look after finding out truth about the Asgardians that’d make Guillermo Del Toro snap his fingers in excitement. Spikes! A sick duster! Prickly claws! And by the end of the big story? He’s in a black and white toga, almost totally featureless, yet still mischievous. Oh, Loki!”
