Loki is honestly one of the greatest Marvel characters ever brought to the big screen, even when he was a sneaky villain who constantly did infuriating things he was so likable. After recently watching a Youtube video ranking Loki’s best moments I decided I might as well make my own list. So here it is. My ten favorite Loki moments.
10. “Get help.”
While the movies established Loki and Thor as brothers they were portrayed as feuding brothers for most of their time together in the MCU but Thor: Ragnarok did give us a glimpse into their lives as children. The “Get help” is not only funny but so cute. I wish we could’ve had more time with them doing brotherly things but maybe we still can.
Marvel has made plenty of entertaining films that have left fans of all ages clamoring for more but there are those rare gems in the franchise that are truly outstanding movies. Marvel is heralded for its incredible use of humor and Guardians of the Galaxy and Thor: Ragnarok is among the funniest installments in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But what makes them so great isn’t just the numerous amount of jokes but the truly enjoyable storyline and characters. Both of these films with its laugh-out-loud humor and vibrant colors brought a standard to the Marvel’s funnier installments and have become ultimate fan favorites.
When Avengers: Endgame concluded I knew I had seen the end of an era. An etch in a stone that had been such a part of my life for so many years. And even though Spider-Man: Far from Home was the MCU film to officially bring Phase 3 to an end it still feels as if Endgame was the last true Marvel Studios movie.
Now, everything is a blank. The story has to start over. Black Widow isn’t a sequel to a previous film. It is a prequel that is taking us back to shortly after Captain America: Civil War, leaving me still feeling a bit abandoned considering that I don’t know what the heck is going on moving forward!
After watching several Marvel movies over the weekend and concluding my partial marathon with an emotional viewing of Captain America: The First Avenger last night, I truly feel the ache of the loss of these Marvel films.
For so many years, we’ve gotten MCU movies at a steadily increasing pace. Of course, by now we would have gotten another film in Black Widow if not for the deadly virus COVID-19 and that only makes waiting for another Marvel movie even more agonizing.
Gosh, I can’t wait until The Falcon and the Winter Soldier and WandaVision later this year. I need to see my superhero peeps because honestly…I miss them.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day.
Into the Rift, the Valkyrie flew, their formation showcasing a powerful and united unit. Surrounding them, in the Netherrealm, or as the Asgardians called it, the Middle Passage, were massive turrets of brimstone that rose in the darkness. The black sky was punctured by a myriad of colorful lights that cast the Valkyrie under a rainbow-colored glow.
The Netherrealm was undoubtedly ethereal but the dangers in the darkness kept the Valkyrie tense and ready to fight. It wasn’t long before those exact dangers emerged from the deep; shadow-like creatures called Nevix clambering up the brimstone turrets. Their moaning cries filled the air as they clawed and jumped at the Valkyrie, their open maws revealing fiery innards.
“Keep formation and follow me!” Samantha yelled as she slashed a Nevix that was jumping at her from above.
Samantha entered the courtyard with Priscilla at her right shoulder. The Valkyrie turned to her, their expressions resolute as they awaited her command. Behind each of them stood a beautiful Pegasus, powerfully muscled and understandably proud, as if they knew they were the most beautiful creatures in the universe.
Samantha mounted her very own Pegasus, a gorgeous mare she named Destiny. She then turned to her fellow Valkyrie who was mounting their own horses. Their eagerness for the mission was apparent in their expressions, in the tightness they held the manes of the Pegasi, but there was an undeniable air of fear that lingered over them. They had all fought beside Hela in great battles against formidable foes. They had watched in awe as the Goddess of Death mowed through enemies like a scythe in a wheat field. And they all knew that none of them could defeat her. They could only hope that together they would be enough. Continue reading Valkyrie: The Kings of Asgard?: Chapter Five→
Sunlight was what woke Valkyrie the next morning. Groggily she woke, her eyes registering the bright streams of light pouring into the room from the window. She rolled over, expecting to feel Tarthon’s warm body next to her. Instead, she felt only emptiness.
Her eyes snapped open and she sat up. Tarthon was nowhere to be seen. She jumped out of bed, quickly throwing on some black leggings over her underwear and a tank top over her matching black bra. She then scrambled into her boots and charged across the room, opening the door of her apartment and looking down the hall. He was still nowhere to be seen.
