Marvel’s Loki series premiered a few days ago revealing many fascinating unknown facts (Loki Death)and solving many MCU mysteries. As the Loki series released, we saw a very surprising reaction from the notorious God of Mischief after watching the footage of his own death from Avengers: Infinity war. Why was the God of Mischief laughing on Infinity war’s Loki death?
The series picks up from where Loki escapes in 2012 from New York. After escaping with the Tesseract Loki ends up in the Gobi desert, Mongolia. Regardless of the effortless start, the notorious God adjourned every bit of his pretentious bluster. Unluckily for him, he was brought back to Earth in a more symbolic extent when Hunter B-15 from the Time Variance Authority arrived and arrested him.
Despite all of his efforts, things didn’t go as the God of mischief wanted. Shoved through the TVA’s organization and often degrading system, Loki who’s usually unruffled reflected a surprising amount of worry. This fear even heightened when he was reckoned guilty of crimes against the sacred team timeline and in result was punished to be wiped out from existence.
Even though he was eventually granted a stay of execution by Agent Mobius, worse was yet to come for the God of Mischief. As if it was not enough getting tortured by the footage from a life he never got a chance to live, Loki rummaged deeper into his file and watched even more key moments in his character’s development journey in Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Loki series features the God of Mischief laughing on Infinity War’s Loki death
The set of footages reached its apex in his brutal death at the hands of the Mad Titan. However, the reaction we got from Loki was quite shocking as after a moment of apparent trauma and saddened anguish, Loki broke in out in a fit of laughter.
The reason behind Loki’s laugh on his Infinity war’s version of Loki death can be added up by an old saying – if you don’t laugh, you will cry. Within a few moments, Loki discovered that the entirety of his evil doings and deceptions amounted to absolutely nothing. For all he knew, everything he did was in vain and caused the deaths of the people he cared about including his brother, Thor. His endeavours to ignore his fondness for his family counted to lose time he’d never get back.
After all his evil plans and schemes, he was made vulnerable by a being that truly lived up to that reputation. For all his declarations about being a God, he got the words – You will never be a God, shot back at him in his last moments.
He was already shaken to the core by the TVA’s ignorance of the Infinity stones and the footage of his lifeline just pulled the last string. After seeing how his life ended so embarrassingly, all he could do was laugh at the tremendous irony of how his life turned out all because of his stupid faults.
In the episode, he was seen speaking of making bad decisions and taking the wrong paths. At that moment, Loki realised that he was not as invulnerable as he’d arrogantly concluded. With all his misconceptions and twisted logic peeled away, he finally saw the reality of himself. He realised that despite his powers and capacities, he was no better than the humans he looked down upon as underlings.
After finding out all this information and a new, more true sense of freedom, we are yet to see what will Loki do with his second chance. This can work in two ways for the God of mischief, either realising that all of his previous purposes were fruitless will make him more bitter or he may embrace the nicer parts of his true self and then free the timeline’s inhabitants while still being a mischievous troublemaker.
In the series, Loki will be seen fighting an evil variant of himself that could help him decide what to do with his newfound liberation. All this could help him become the best version of himself. Well, all will be revealed as the fresh episodes arrive. New episodes release every Wednesday on Disney+.
