“The saddest thing about betrayal is that it never comes from your enemies.”  ~ Horus Fe-Nix

There comes a moment in every man’s story that defines them. For Loki, that moment was when he realized that his entire life, all his expectations for his future had been based on a lie.

To him this was a betrayal. He believed he knew who he was and what his role was in the future of Asgard. The venomous words Odin spoke in the first Thor film must have felt like a killing blow to everything Loki had been taught to believe about himself. He had to reconstruct his identity from the ashes of the life he had known.

That moment, that betrayal, cemented a resolve inside of him that led him down the path of the villain, but Loki still retained elements of the Anti Hero deep inside himself.

What do you think?  Had Loki not been betrayed by those closest to him, would he have chosen the path he did?

  1. Surely I’m not the only one, but I seriously hate Odin. I feel like he went out of his way for most of the first film to alienate Loki and make him feel like total shite. Even the way he broke his heritage to him was, like, seriously cold, and then *bam* convenient Odin sleep? No, old man, that’s not how this works. Don’t even get me started on how he treated him on the Rainbow Bridge at the end. Stone cold Odin.

    That being said, I wish Loki would see that he’s Thor’s favourite, even if he’s not Odin’s 😦

    • I feel the exact same way. Odin’s treatment of Loki had me so pissed by the end of the movie. But I really wish Loki could see that even through it all Thor still loved him and treated him as a brother, offered him hope. *sigh* I think Loki may just be afraid of being betrayed again. Fool me once…
