OMG
AMAZING
also, I showed one of my friends at school today a picture of Loki (since they apparently HAVEN'T SEEN THE THOR MOVIES) and SHE SAID HE WAS UGLY! I was all like "WHAAAAAAAT??!" and proceeded to attempt to contemplate how someone finds Loki unattractive!

People (like myself) like Loki because we understand and relate to him. Seeing the pain underneath it all, and relating to the feeling of being lied to, being hurt and being told you were never enough for anyone. The reason he hurt and killed a lot of people is because he finally snapped from all of that pain and suffering he went through, in his mind it was about conquering and becoming a king which really isn't that different from what Odin did, yet people still consider him a good person (I do too but I certainly don't consider him with out flaws). Unfortunately, like a lot of us, His pain went unnoticed by the people he cared about the most. The worst part is that he doesn't even hate his father or his brother even though he says that he does. He just wanted them to view him as a worthwhile person "I never wanted the throne, all I ever wanted was to be your equal". I'm not saying what he did was a good thing whatsoever or that I condone this kind of behavior, i'm pretty sure most Loki fans will tell you the same, but he is someone that you can relate to when you've been hurt to the breaking point. I do think he is a good person, he has just made some really bad mistakes, and those mistakes got people killed unfortunately. However, he had to grow in his own way just like Thor did. In the last two movies since this has happened, he has learned and became a better person for it even if he isn't 100% on the side of "Good"

Even if you go the route that he is a villain and nothing else, you can also appreciate just how well developed his character is. He has a great backstory, he has a charming charisma that makes you want to trust him, he is really funny and able to make you laugh, and in general it's very satisfying when he's brought down a couple of notches from his god complex. (really love that scene with the hulk xD) 

Um the other part is because he is played by a really great actor, who is a very kind person in real life so I think maybe that plays a big part too. It doesn't help that Tom (his actor) is incredibly good looking as well.Anyways this is just my oppion on why and I understand if you don't like him you don't have to.

Very cool!  At first, I get more an impression of gorgeous color but little detail.  Close, and rapt, attention shows a LOT of detail.

This is one of my absolute favorites! I'm in love with everything about it. And it's amazing the kind of imagination a simple word can ignite...."After"
