“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. ¬†ūüôā

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*
