Marvel Has Seemingly Retconned Loki's Actions In AVENGERS To Make Him Appear Less Villainous

An updated Marvel.com profile for Loki (Tom Hiddleston) appears to have retconned a somewhat minor, but still intriguing detail relating to his villainous actions in the first Avengers movie. Check it out.

Has Marvel retconned Loki's past to make him appear less villainous? That certainly appears to be the case, if an updated profile on the character over at Marvel.com is any indication.

As we know, Loki was the main baddie in Thor before returning as the antagonist of The Avengers in Joss Whedon's first film, and it was there that his bastard level was raised to new heights as he set about attempting to enslave the human race, killing a lot of innocent people in the process.

But what if The Mad Titan was more directly responsible for The God of Mischief's actions that we realized? The listing reads:


"Arriving at the Sanctuary through a wormhole caused by the Bifrost, Loki met the Other, ruler of the ancient race of extraterrestrials the Chitauri, and Thanos. Offering the God of Mischief dominion over his brother’s favorite realm Earth, Thanos requested the Tesseract in return. Gifted with a Scepter that acted as a mind control device, Loki would be able to influence others. Unbeknownst to him, the Scepter was also influencing him, fueling his hatred over his brother Thor and the inhabitants of Earth."

This may seem like a rather minor alteration, but it could make all the difference if Marvel is planning to allow Loki to continue down his path of redemption and ultimately become a full-fledged hero at some point. In his upcoming Disney+ series, perhaps?

Of course, there is the small matter of the character being dead, but we're pretty sure Thanos' "no resurrections this time" post-kill statement in Infinity War will not prove to be accurate.
