While some people think that the Marvel Universe has milked itself dry, there are still others who believe and know that the franchise has a multitude of potential and ideas that they may branch off of, such as Loki

Fans saw a number of TV shows come into fruition under the banner of the MCU and while some were good and others were forgettable, there was one show that truly stood out from among the rest. That show, of course, was Loki. Tom Hiddleston reprises his role as the God of mischief yet again. This time he goes on an adventure without the help of Thor constantly overshadowing him.

Loki takes the tesseract on a ride with him during the events of Endgame or technically, during the events of The Avengers. He gets caught up with some time-keepers that use him to find a variant of himself.

Other than all of that, here is why this MCU series is the best of them all.

Loki does a better job explaining the multiverse

While WandaVision has some great moments and hints at the multiversal existence, it fell flat when exploring more of the lore of the MCU, specifically the multiverse. Loki has been able to explore the history and inner-workings of the multiverse through the eyes of the anti-hero Loki.

Audiences understand multiversal jumps and how going back to national tragedies like the destruction of Pompeii does not affect the timeline or create a split in the multiverse. The show seemed like a great precursor to what fans received in Spider-Man: No Way Home.

The show works almost as a history lesson for fans that didn’t read the comics, like myself. Its classroom-like structure and gripping storytelling dives deep into all things mysterious with an ardent passion for time travel.

Loki is still the most interesting character in MCU TV

Whether you love him or you hate him, people were dying for a spin-off Loki movie or series inside of the MCU. The character’s presence is almost unmatched by any other villain seen thus far. Hiddleston captures the essence of Loki and it’s a treat to finally see the character get his time to shine.

What makes it so watchable is the fact that Loki is an unpredictable loose canon and with that sort of character being loosed upon the Marvel franchise, fans continue to watch to see if the character is truly good or if he is bad to the bone.

Seeing other Loki variants just made the story even better once fans were able to digest some of the TVA’s history and focus more on the other Lokis. One of them even killed Thor which sounds like an alternate universe that would make millions on the big screen.

Loki leaves people wanting more

By the end of the first season, fans meet up with “He Who Remains” , a variant of Kang the Conqueror, who lets Loki’s variant Sylvie kill him but at the cost of causing a cataclysmic change to the multiverse.

The MCU’s original Loki is transported back to the TVA where nobody recognizes him and where a statue of “He Who Remains” has been erected. Season 2 has begun shooting and fans are already hyped for what direction the series could go into next.

WandaVision and MoonKnight were good, but the level of hype just wasn’t there at the end of their seasons. Loki has a multitude of possibilities in the multiverse and that is what makes it great.
