By Josh Wilding - 1/9/2014
LOKI is back and craftier than ever as the All-Mother’s secret weapon against Asgardia’s strangest threats. With his serpent’s tongue, debonair charm, and taste for the uncanny, there’s no assignment Loki won’t take—including the untimely stabbing of THOR! The surprises only start here for the Prince of Lies, as the most conniving corners of the Marvel Universe are blown open this February in LOKI: AGENT OF ASGARD #1!

I don't like his design.. something about his crown and forehead looks off. Otherwise the art looks alright.
themidnightking - 1/9/2014, 2:05 PM
I will definitely not pick this up
Joementum - 1/9/2014, 2:05 PM
Milk it Marvel. Milk it dry.
Joementum - 1/9/2014, 2:05 PM
oh guess you just did
Custer28 - 1/9/2014, 2:06 PM
Loki is a girl?
GliderMan - 1/9/2014, 2:10 PM
Um.. why is this the movie Avengers..
Joementum - 1/9/2014, 2:11 PM
Coming Soon:

Zack Efron IS Loki

No thanks.....enjoy him in the films, but not near enough to warrant a title. Really hope this doesn't mean he's going to be a big focus or get a film or anything :/ Why can't say Dr Strange get a great ongoing title instead? this doesn't look that great, quite the opposite actually

The new Black Widow #1 was fantastic! Great writing and beautiful art
Dustellar - 1/9/2014, 2:17 PM
Loki, most overrated character since Joker.
Dandy - 1/9/2014, 2:17 PM
I think it looks alright but get rid of that crappy tiara. Bring back the devils horn helmet.
PunkRockJesus - 1/9/2014, 2:18 PM
ugh, why does he look like he belongs on a [frick]ing CW Tween show? what the [frick] Marvel...
QuestiontheAnswer - 1/9/2014, 2:19 PM
Lol he looks like a homosexual nymphomaniac.
Magus - 1/9/2014, 2:30 PM
This is a teenage Loki. I assume none of you read Young Avengers. The design isn' the best but "gay sexual deviant" is pushing it.
sameoldthing - 1/9/2014, 2:35 PM
Awful design.
KEEP THE COMICS & FILMS SEPARATE!

It's best to have the creative endeavors of both without mixing it up.
For many years I've watched many CBM's & read hundreds of comics.
NEVER did I get confused why they were not "exactly" the same.

Two different mediums. Two separate entities. People are not stupid Marvel/Disney.
Well...some are.
Doopie - 1/9/2014, 2:36 PM
that is not how I would relax with black widow
Swiftsword777 - 1/9/2014, 2:39 PM
With a Tom Hiddleson-like make-over? Really? More like Ian Somerhalder. Mybe thats who you meant because the design looks shit like Hiddleson
Dustellar - 1/9/2014, 2:41 PM
Oh... I read Young Shitvengers, ehm Young Hipsvengers... Young Avengers, was shit :P
Jefferys - 1/9/2014, 2:50 PM
Days like today that I realise that very little on here actually read comics. Look has been a woman before. Loki also died and was brought back as a child which Thor nursed hoping to raise him better. He went through a time portal and is now a teenager and joined (one of the best comics out) Young Avengers. Loki is far better received with younger audiences than adults who haven't read a comic since Deadpool was introduced. Because comics are now written for a wide variety of audiences other than a small targeted phenomenon.
ALmight - 1/9/2014, 2:54 PM
Hawkeye described it best, Loki looks "One Direction-y."
TelaVizion - 1/9/2014, 2:56 PM
This series is gonna be good. So far what was shown in One Point is good.
Geeksiah - 1/9/2014, 2:58 PM
The Geeksiah speaks.

This is Marvel listening to their fans.
Fans that are not most of you.

Stop bitchin' and just be happy Marvel has a new book that looks somewhat different. (Unless you count Jack of tales)

Loki: Agent of Tumblr (?)
Liverpool4life - 1/9/2014, 3:13 PM
Marvel needs to get rid of Quesada.
HeadPool420 - 1/9/2014, 3:23 PM
When did Loki become a metro sexual?
Nivekian - 1/9/2014, 3:54 PM
Really don't like retrofitting the comics to fit some need to hook the Tom Hiddleson female/ male fans. And the chick Loki really confused people.
xStarLordx - 1/9/2014, 5:06 PM
@Dustellar I agree. While he is pretty cool and insanely overrated. I hope we never get a Loki Movie. My friends at school who have never picked up a comic a day in their life that think they know everything about superheroes and villains and whatnot, don't shut up about loki I'll be happy to see their faces when either a.Loki dies and they shut up or b. Something big happens and they don't know anything about it and I laugh because I know what's going on. Although it would be sad to see him go it would be great to see a lot of "fanboys" shut up and go away. Apparently at my school if you know something about marvel you're supposedly the popular kid. Which is untrue and frankly I'm sick and tired of these fanboys. So if loki dies there is an upside. My point is he is highly overrated and if he were to die a lot of "fanboys" would leave.

Fanboy= Fake comic book fans who think Loki is the greatest superhero of all time.
Nigrutin - 1/9/2014, 5:13 PM
What is up with [frick]ing Marvel and their thing with bad art and ''agent of'' title crap jesus...
TonyChu - 1/9/2014, 6:33 PM
Can't wait to pick this up. I can't believe you guys are not interested in this title.
MischiefMaker - 1/9/2014, 7:34 PM
Ahhh, don't you love the smell of fanboy butthurt??
First off, Swiftword, don't take your low self-esteem out on Tom Hiddleston, it's not his fault that you're jealous that he's probably getting panties in the mail, and you're not. Second, You can talk all the smack you want about those on tumblr, they're not as dumb as you like to portray them as, they can probably run circles around you and they know their stuff. Third, SpiderGir, you're sad excuse for a human being and I hope these friends of yours, kick you down a flight of stairs(I know I certainly would)Jerks, like you don't deserve to have friends. This is the overall "No Newbies allowed" attitude in the comic book fandom is really sad.You need to grow up folks, I'm sorry that you're such sad, petty, people that you would rather be condescending jerks then welcome others into the fandom, and show people the ropes.
If you need me I'll be storming gate and blowing up the so called "gatekeepers"
norseman79 - 1/9/2014, 8:22 PM
To the mongoloid dumbshit above me....

Criticism doesn't always come from jealousy. You've gone and heartily embraced one of the cliche'd "idiot's responses to criticism". Bravo.

"I hope you get kicked down a flight of stairs"

You don't get to call people petty when you wish physical harm upon them because they dislike a character and actor you've got a hard-on for. Can you not see the blatant hypocrisy you've got going here?!

The problem with the fandom isn't related directly to comic book fans. It's the internet. Every little basement-virgin pussy will wish physical harm and talk shit to anyone and everyone they disagree with.

I'm a fan of Loki (not necessarily this book) but you're just so full of shit I had to comment. Take a look in the mirror if you want to see a sad excuse for a human being.

mgeoff88 - 1/9/2014, 9:24 PM
Loki looks creepy as hell on the cover... He looks feminine, which is disturbing.
Tetrahedron - 1/9/2014, 10:46 PM
So Loki's a woman again? :/
AsgardianHobo - 1/9/2014, 11:42 PM
See how you guys are so engrossed in what gender Loki is or intends to be? He has you all looking confused.

The God of Mischief strikes again!
jimoakley666 - 1/10/2014, 2:25 AM
That artwork is bloody lovely. I like the fact that they at least acknowledge that Loki is looking a little... emo... these days. If they're going the Hiddleston route though, I rather they kept that cool-as-[frick] helmet he has in the movies. The tiara makes me think of She-Ra or some such shit.
jimoakley666 - 1/10/2014, 2:28 AM
By the way, I'm not bitching about this change. I think he looks far better than the original horny jester look. This is a cool costume for Loki. Just not the head-gear. Change is good. It's all part of life.
MsDarkPhoenix - 1/10/2014, 5:39 AM


Have you seen the fan art on tumblr? Gay incest which isn't censored.
And to anyone who is wondering why this has the movie Avengers, well this comic is mostly aiming towards the Loki fangirls who suddenly appeared and only know these Avengers. These fangirls are so annoying, some of my classmates asked me to lend them some comics with Thor and Loki and they brought them back damaged. I'm never giving them anything ever again!!

I'm still not sure if I should buy this one... Maybe I'll give it a shot, a couple of issues and then I'll see. I'm not impressed anyway.
AGoodHonestMan - 1/10/2014, 6:18 AM
Fan girls + A hot Loki = Money


Marvel knows this, so they will milk him dry.
ComicBookGoth - 1/10/2014, 8:06 AM
when i Think Loki:





When the public/tumblr Think Loki:




Lest we all forget, he is(TheMajorityOfTheTime) an inherently evil "Villian:.

Melkaticox - 1/10/2014, 10:13 AM
@ComicBookGoth We already have enough "creepy" villains at Marvel, so giving Loki so much charisma and his own personality isn`t a bad thing at all.
...That design is pretty bad, though.
huckfinnisher - 1/10/2014, 1:13 PM
I can dig it although i don't like the crown either and i do miss his old comic look where he was actually intimidating.
