Loki, as played by Tom Hiddleston on TV’s Loki, who is a god, now has a new name: God Loki. And I’ll tell you what, that’s pretty confusing.
The revelation comes courtesy of the official Loki social accounts, which posted a graphic featuring Loki’s look from the series finale of the Disney+ show. In it — and spoilers if you haven’t watched — we see the all-powerful Loki who traveled the bridge from the Time Variance Authority (TVA) to the end of time, repaired the multiverse through sheer will alone, and now sits on a throne of gold for all eternity.
Fans had speculated that he might be called the God of Stories now, as he is sometimes in the Marvel comic books. Or perhaps the God of Time, since that’s what he is. Also possibly Loktree, because he sort of turned into Yggdrasil the World Tree. But nope! He’s God Loki.
Again, I would like to emphasize, that Loki has always been a god. A Norse god, to be precise, he is also known as the God of Mischief. He’s spent multiple movies and 12 episodes of a TV show telling us he’s a god. However, perhaps this is the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s (MCU) way of delineating things a bit, since way back in 2011’s Thor it was explained to viewers that the Asgardians (including Loki) aren’t necessarily actual gods so much as highly advanced aliens. Now, Loki is a god, in a greater sense, as all of the multiverse flows out of him.
Loktree is much funnier though, they should have gone for that.
