Revisiting The ‘Loki’ Season Finale: Why Everyone Was Right, and No One Was
The first season of Marvel’s newest series concluded with quite the bang, and amidst the plethora of theories taking over the MCU fandom, we tell you why everyone was right, but no one was, as we are revisiting Loki Season one finale.
A wild, time-traveling adventure led Loki, and his variant Sylvie, to the depths of The Void. Beyond the cloud monster of Alioth, hidden in a citadel at the edge of time, was the answers to who had caused all of the trouble for our two heroes.
As with any Marvel Studios endeavor, one of the most prevalent side effects is the abundance of fan theories that seem to take over the internet.
Fans who have read the comic books note where the two will intersect, and what could potentially come for the characters; while those who adore the movies observe where everything may connect.
Loki has been at the epicenter of such fan theories.
since the series’ beginning- and the announcement that Loki will be the first Marvel project to deal with the incredibly vital concept of time- fans have questioned who could appear, what could take place, and what it all could mean for the greater MCU.
The season finale was one that was the culmination of weeks of fan theories that questioned just who was in that citadel, what was their motive, and who was behind the might of the Time Variance Authority.
It appeared that the answer was in line with what was theorized by the majority of fans; proving that everyone was right, and no one was, as we are revisiting Loki’s season one finale.
It did come to fruition; Kang finally made his debut in the MCU. Just not in the way anyone thought.
Since the conception of the Loki series, and news that the series would heavily deal with time travel in the Marvel universe, fans have suspected the presence of Kang the Conqueror.
Even us at Mickey Blog assumed the warlord would appear during the series.
Kang is one of Marvel’s most prevalent characters and is most known for his dealings with time travel, and his use of time to accumulate world-crushing power.
However, it wasn’t Kang waiting for our heroes in that citadel at the end of time; instead, it was He Who Remains.
Avid Marvel comics readers will know He Who Remains as the director of the TVA, much like the series displayed.
What is fascinating is that Marvel was able to use He Who Remains in alignment with his original comic book origin, while also tying him into the Kang reveal.
It turns out that He who Remains is actually a variant of a character who has already been known to travel throughout the various dimensions of Marvel’s reality.
After Sylvie gets her revenge on He Who Remains, fans get a glimpse at the next great threat to the MCU; Kang The conqueror, with his statue looming large in the TVA, in place of the previous timekeepers.
It appears that everyone was right, while no one was; as Kang, the Conqueror has fulfilled his destine as the MCU’s next biggest threat.
