A good Loki is a pain in the ass Loki. The All-Mother gives him the Asgardian equivalent of “Go outside and play, boy,” and sends him to New Jersey. As The Inventor was last working on some device capable of creating gravitational singularities, that could be bad news for Asgard and Midgard. Loki is tasked with checking out Kamala’s high school to ensure there aren’t any leftover brainwashed kids lurking about.
Upon arrival in Jersey, Loki is directed to the Bruno’s convenience store if he hopes to find high school students to question. Loki overhears Bruno pining away for Kamala, and trying to work up the nerve to ask her to the Valentine’s Day dance. Ever helpful, Loki writes an anonymous love letter to Kamala on Bruno’s behalf.
Nakia warns Kamala that the letter could be from a crazy person, but Kamala’s curiosity gets the best of her and she attends the dance hoping to see if she can uncover her admirer’s identity. Instead, she witnesses Loki (again, trying to help) spiking the punch with truth serum.
Of course, hormonal teenagers blurting out every honest thought that pops into their heads can’t be good.
Kamala dashes out to become Ms. Marvel and confronts Loki. After a bit of embiggened manhandling and Loki getting a taste of his own medicine (literally), they call a truce. Loki agrees to place a ward of protection over their school before he goes.
Good thing for Bruno, he didn’t drink the punch so he was in no danger of revealing his feelings for Kamala. The two friends fist bump it out.
- This was a fun break from the usual. And it’s always nice to see Kamala interacting with other parts of the Marvel universe.
- It was laugh-out-loud funny whenever Loki was referred to as a “Viking hipster.”
