“He looks strong and animal and dominant, a beast of sex.”
~ Portia Da Costa
When I think of the word Dominant, I immediately think, Alpha Male which is described as: a man tending to assume a dominant or domineering role in social or professional situations. Being an Alpha and Dominant go hand in hand.
Loki is intelligent and commands presence wherever he goes. He is able to articulate his ideas and orders in a clear and concise manner. He is in control, even when it looks like he isn’t. This is the mark of someone who carries the Dominant trait.
One thing I noticed about him though the course of the three films is his ability to adapt and use whatever is in front of him to push his ultimate agenda. A good chess player is able to anticipate all the possibilities and see the game ten moves ahead, always prepared for whatever comes his way. This is what Loki does. He studies the world around him as a chess player does the game board. Self preservation. He is maintaining his control in every eventuality.
There is another reason I chose Dominant to describe Loki. While we haven’t seen any romantic interest for him in the films, there is an over abundance of it in the Marvel fandom. Fangirls can’t get enough of this sinful character. Enter Loki’s Dirty Whispers, a submission-based tumblr page that focuses on the fantasies of those fans. Loki takes center stage as the Dom of their dreams.
How do you see this trait in Loki? Alpha Male? A Dom? Whatever you see when you look at him under this light, there’s no denying that he has a commanding presence that even six Avengers could not overshadow.
