He's got his own interests at heart

Are we talking about the stupid movie, or the ACTUAL mythology?

Mainly the movie, because that's where most people know him from. :)
Nyx999 says2013-09-08T15:05:15.6046105-05:00
Ok. *sigh* because I'd REALLY like to debate with somebody about mythology right now.

No matter how you put it Loki is the god of mischief, and mischief has an evil intent it doesn't matter if its the movie, the comic, or the ACTUAL mythology Loki is basically having evil intent at all times so he is looking for the answer yes in this debate.

As far as I know, Loki isn't actually a "Mischief God," or even a "trickster god," like the American god Coyote. He was mostly a "Fire-God." The idea is that, from the standpoint of the ancient Germanic tribesmen, you could never trust fire. Sometimes very helpful, sometimes very harmful, you could never turn your back on it. But, anyway, I don't know of anything in any of the Eddas (the poems and oaths that make up most of Germanic mythology) that call him anything but just his name. Some other German myths call him a fire god.

Well, since the images show him as the Avengers villain, then yes, he is truly evil.

Pictures don't mean anything. You need to get to know him to understand him patriotperson

Mischief isn't necessarily evil. Evil is doing something purposely that is very wrong, while being mischievous is causing annoyance or slight harm. I don't think Loki is actually evil, but he's acts have gone beyond the point of being mischievous.

Well, he wasn't always evil (as seen in the first half of Thor), but after Avengers, you'd think he would be.

He is neither. Loki is an anti-hero.
