The secret around the variant that plays with the sacred timeline is revealed at the end of episode 2 of Loki. We find out who is hiding under this hood. And surprise … Attention spoilers!

But whatever, who is she really? This is where things get interesting. In the comics, Lady Loki is simply our Loki, the real one, but in a feminine form. Because over the past six decades, the character has often changed form in the comics, to become a woman and stay that way for several years. Moreover, even before the broadcast of the series, Disney had subtly unveiled a teaser of the VAT file on Loki, in which we could read that Loki is “Gender Fluid”, or non-binary, in short not attached to one gender or another. The Disney Plus show therefore takes a big step towards comics, even if it seems, here, that it is not quite the same person, as this Lady Loki of episode 2 is not quite the Loki of Avengers

In any case, the director of the series, Kate Herron, reckons (via Reverse) that it was very important to make the thing official in the MCU: “Loki is non-binary in Norse mythology and in the comics and it seemed important to ensure that it got canon. “Sespecially because “many people identify with Loki specifically and are looking for this representation “, adds showrunner Michael Waldron.

Why didn’t Loki’s Keepers of Time intervene in Avengers: Endgame?

And Tom hiddleston to specify in EW than “Loki, as a character, has had such a broad and vast identity … He’s always been that character that you can never put in a box, in a box. That you can never totally pin down, and I’m really glad we got to get to that on the show.

Still, we could now see appear in the sequel on Disney Plus even more versions of Loki and why not Kid Loki, another popular incarnation of comics. What about Loki Matt Damon?
