From the very moment we realized Loki faked his own death we had an inkling of how mischievous it’s all going to be. God of Mischief, indeed. It would be a lie, that we all didn’t mourn Loki alongside Thor. We all can agree, a story can be as good as its villain is bad. The character of Loki evolved with every movie he appeared in. In Thor we saw the origin of the character, the grievances and the insecurities. We saw his broken heart. But we all hated him in the first movie of the Thor franchise, yes, I said it. The charm of Loki wasn’t there then. Thor: the dark world, though, it gave the room for character growth. We saw and felt the emotions, the charm, the evil glint, and we waited, eagerly for his manipulation. Let’s just say we wanted the bad boy. Thor Ragnarök, evolved the character even more. We saw the brave Loki, the funny one and we wanted more and more of Loki. The favorite villain of the Marvel Cinematic Universe was chosen.
Infinity war gave us a lot of shocks and Loki’s death was a major one of them. But now that does not matter because Loki the series has finally been released and we absolutely loved the episode 1: Glorious Purpose. The villainous character with a twinge of possibility for pretend-forced-goodness. Smirks and the entitled words. Evil with grace. We totally dig it.
In honor of our beloved Villain here are his most iconic dialogues.

- “An ant has no quarrel with a boot.”
- “Can you? Can you wipe out that much red? Drakoff’s daughter? Sao Paulo? The hospital file? Barton told me everything.”
- “Well done, you just decapitated your grandfather!”
- “I’ve been falling… for 30 minutes!”
- “I need to get off this planet.”
- “YES! That’s what it feels! I’m just a huge fan of the sport.”
- “I can’t jeopardise my position! I’ve gained the Grandmaster’s favour two weeks ago!”
- “Do you really think it’s a good idea to go back to Earth?”
