“And you, sir, are very attractive. Therefore I will stare at you.” ~ Unknown

I’m not sure if I have an argument for this one…or even need one. But let’s get into it and see if something worthwhile comes out.  🙂

Tom Hiddleston is handsome, ergo Loki is handsome.

But I’m not going to stop there, oh hell no.  Loki is sinfully sexy. He is the diametric opposite of his brother, Thor, in almost all ways, especially in looks.  This is a good thing, though.

The Hero is supposed to be fair and muscular, dashing and attractive.  While the Villain is dark and of a more slender build, predatory and cunning.  Sound like a pair we know?

They’re archetypes, instilled in us since childhood. We’re taught to identify the villain based on his appearance.  Seriously, just watch any children’s film.  It’ll make total sense then. But we all know that isn’t how it works in the real world.  No one is completely good or evil.  We all have varying shades of darkness inside of us.  It’s how we choose to act on these dark impulses that define us. I think this applies to Loki as well.

We all grow up and see things without the cut and dry, black and white influence of childhood. It’s important to not judge a book by it’s cover. Loki is no different. I found a post from Tumblr that made a very good point while making me laugh.  Here it is:

Just a side note, while Loki fits the physical description of an archetypal villain, he also fits the anti hero mold in this category as well.  Tall, dark, and handsome…*ponders the possibilities*

Is Loki handsome?

Hell yeah. You wouldn’t be reading this if you didn’t feel the same way. Admit it…*winks*
