Loki is one of the most popular characters in the films of Marvel Studios. After the six original Avengers, Tom Hiddleston's character is one of those that has more appearances in that cohesive universe, and therefore his life, death, and resurrection have been the subject of many theories.
One of the main speculations about Loki has become popular after the premiere of Avengers, Setting that God for fraud He was actually mentally controlled during the events in the film.
But during the subsequent deliveries of the MCU, there was no concrete evidence to support that theory, bypassing the approach to the territory of speculation and speculation abounding with films of this type.
However, now the biography of this version of Loki on Marvel's official website has confirmed this Loki was not fully in control of his actions during the Avengers.
An extract from the biography of Loki recalls how the character survived his apparent death at the end of Thor's first film, noting that "upon arriving at the Sanctuary through the reddish-caused by Bifrost, Loki met the Other, the ruler of the ancient race of aliens, Chitauri and Thanos ".
So far, everything is a familiar story that ended with Thanos revenge and Loki's death at the start of Avengers: Infinity War, but the confirmation of the theory comes in the second part of that description.
"Bringing the god of deception power over the favorite kingdom of his brother, Earth, Thanos asked him to return to Thessalonica," says the biography. "Circumcised with a scepter who acted as a device for controlling the mind, Loki can influence others. But without knowing, the scepter also influenced him, prompting hatred for his brother, Thor and the inhabitants of the Earth. "
That is, during all the events of the Avengers, Loki acted under the influence of the scepter he made a gem of a mind. This subject influenced him, just as Loki had used with Hawkeye and Eric Selvig to help him realize the Chitauri invasion.
The idea that Loki could be under some influence, raised Thor in the film, especially when he in his first meeting with Loki asks "Who controls the supreme king? " intrigued by Loki's claims about the power of the Thesaurus and the worlds he would not have imagined.
Also remember that the sketch was given to Loki by the Other, who at one point in the film uses it to contact him and threatens to be troubled if he fails to conquer the Earth.
In that sense, the description not detailed whether the impact of the center was considered part of the Thanos plan or this was a collateral effect on the proximity of a diamond that no one took into account, as happens with Bruce Banner in the same Avengers.
However, this update of Loki's biography does not look like a coincidence, I remember soon the character will have its own series in Disney + streaming and also according to the filtered photos Avengers: Endgame will return to the Battle of New York by Avengers, where Loki will have a new look.
