Everyone who knows Loki knows how evil and sneaky he can really be. But, what about MCU Loki? Has everything he's done all the way from Thor, to Thor: The Dark World been part of his plan to rule Asgard? Well, in this article we will analyze every important thing Loki has done throughout the MCU to find out.
In Thor, we were first introduced to Loki as the shadow that hides behind the glory of Thor himself. Fed up with it all, Loki gets Thor banned from Asgard and deemed unworthy of Mjolnir. Think about it, could Loki have purposely fought alongside Thor against the frost giants knowing at the time how much Thor loved to fight and would then be punished by Odin? Then of course after Thor was banished, Loki made his move in becoming the ruler of Asgard. But could Loki have made a plan B just in case things were to go sideways? What if, after his fight with Thor, he purposely didn't let Thor save him?
2. The Avengers
So, in The Avengers we find Loki alive and well. How could this be possible? From everyone's understanding, Loki dies at the end of Thor. Could this have been Loki's plan all along? What if Loki's plan B was to then team up with Thanos and the Chitauri ? As we all know, Loki's main goal is to rule Asgard, so why would he all of a sudden want to take over New York City? Doesn't make much sense right? Well, I have an explanation for that. What if Loki knew that his attack on New York would fail knowing that afterwards Thor would take him back to Asgard? Sounds like a pretty good plan to me.
3. Thor: The Dark World
And then finally we end back up on Asgard. In Thor: The Dark World, Loki is now being held prisoner, but could being a prisoner have been his plan from the start? Could Loki have somehow known that Malekith would come to attack Asgard, which then lead to Thor asking him for his help as a way to be freed? Not a bad idea right? But what about Loki faking his death? Before the fight that Thor and Loki had with Malekith, the two came up with a plan to destroy the Infinity Stone. Though it is unclear whose plan it was in the first place, we can easily assume it was Loki's plan from the start. Knowing that he wouldn't last in a fight with Malekith and his soldiers, could Loki then have made the plan to fake his death as a way to get back on Asgard while Thor headed to Earth, leaving Asgard defenseless and finally giving Loki his chance to pose as Odin? But what happened to the real Odin you ask? Well it looks like we'll just have to wait and see in Thor: Ragnarok.
