Heart Wrenching Story Of MCU’s Villain- Loki

At this point, it’s a stretch to call Loki (Tom Hiddleston) a villain. The God of Mischief is one of the most popular characters in the MCU, having appeared in seven films and his own TV series, the second season of which is forthcoming. Still, Loki (or variants of Loki) have been antagonistic about as often as they’ve been agreeable. And of all of the MCU’s villains, Loki has been subjected to an inordinate amount of suffering.

First, there’s the fact that he’s not really Asgardian. Loki’s own father, the Frost Giant King Laufey, didn’t want him, so Odin adopted him and raised him as a second son. His acute case of imposter syndrome is understandable. Loki believed he was a more worthy successor to his father since Thor didn’t display the maturity necessary for leadership, so when he was passed over, he took the slight extremely personally. Over the years, he lost his mother, Frigga, and Odin.


His much more evil sister Hela tried to kill him, and he’s frequently been estranged from his brother, Thor, his closest confidant and constant competition. In “Avengers: Infinity War,” Thanos strangles him to death (he’d appeared to be dead twice before in the MCU). Though that Loki really did die, death couldn’t completely stop the God of Mischief, who escaped from a new time branch during the time heist in “Avengers: Endgame,” only to be captured by the TVA.

But perhaps the hardest pill Loki has to swallow is that in his Disney+ series, he falls in love with himself (in the form of Sylvie) and gets rejected. This is one dysfunctional family of deities and one man at war with his own soul.
