Loki was the inspiration for the assembling of The Avengers. Loki is at it again in this week’s Marvel Now! Point One. Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie set the stage for their upcoming relaunch of the Young Avengers with their story within this mega issue of tales.
On Earth 212 Loki invites Miss America to lunch to recruit her for a mission. When Loki shows her Wiccan he teases that the multiverse would be better off with the son of the Scarlet Witch in it. The feisty Miss America delivers a punch and warning for the trickster.
The art pops. The humor and action are perfectly paced. Loki breaks the fourth wall to ask our help in recruiting his team. If this is what we can expect from the new series then I’m in! I’m eager to see what the arrogant, hot-headed Marvel Boy does to Kid Loki!
