universe2066 asked: [Eloki random question for you! I see a lot of Loki sympathy on tumblr and while I agree that he has had some major trauma why is it that people tend to gloss over all the carnage he caused because of it? He murdered and maimed plenty of innocents which were completely unrelated. Why does he get a pass when other sympathetic villains don't?]

((It’s a very common misconception that people gloss over the carnage. There may be a subset of fans who do, and who think that Loki is completely not at fault for anything he did, but any self-respecting Loki fan knows exactly why genocide is bad. I mean… yeah, it’s… sort of hard to make an excuse for that, and I don’t know anyone who would want to.

The thing is that, especially when we’re talking amongst ourselves, we don’t mention it much because we get tired of saying “I’m not apologizing for what Loki did, because it was unacceptable — but I do want to examine the familial, cultural, and institutional dynamics that allowed for such a terrible thing to occur.” We say that all the fucking time, because people seem to have this weird conception that all Loki fans do is apologize for him, and it gets exhausting after a while. We all realize that what he did was wrong — that’s not even a question, and we consider it such a common understanding within the community that it doesn’t bear mentioning when we could be talking about something more interesting, like the the damaging effects of traditional masculinity, or Asgard’s socio-political framework.

Loki murdered and maimed plenty of innocents, and that’s not an okay thing — but Odin and Thor have murdered and maimed plenty of innocents, and the reason why that isn’t emphasized is because we don’t really see it on-screen. We see human women and children running from Loki and his Chitauri army in New York — we don’t see Dark Elf women and children running from Bor and his Asgardian army on Svartalfheim. Not because they weren’t there… but because that’s not where Marvel’s ethnocentric lens was pointed.

What most of us have a serious problem with is the seeming myopia with regard to the faults of the so-called ‘heroes.’ None of us minds admitting that what Loki did was wrong, and most of us have done so, at one point or another, often until we’re blue in the face in order to defend ourselves from people who only care to see him as straight-up evil and miss the point entirely — but what pisses us off is that the context is never examined by the fandom at large, nor are the actions of characters like Odin, Bor, and Thor examined through the same critical lens that Loki tends to be. We’re told by narrative convention that Loki is a villain and that Thor is a hero — but many of us are not content to simply accept that, especially considering the striking similarity of some of their crimes, and the cultural and historic environment in which they were all raised, and which some of them even helped create.

Loki doesn’t get a pass. He never has. But there is so much more to his actions than Marvel does justice to (or can, to be fair), and he as a character must reside within the context of Asgardian social and political norms, and not within those of modern, particularly Western human society, because he has no business there. And that’s the difference between examining the faults and actions of Loki, and doing the same to other supposedly villainous characters, especially within the MCU. We have a context for them which is pretty clearly established; Loki’s is far more complex, and ill-understood by the majority of MCU’s fanbase or the casual viewer, which is why it seems like we’re apologizing for him.

Context is important. And most consumers of media, and of the superhero genre in particular, really seem to forget that… on a basis so regular that it’s frankly a bit alarming.))

I’m just going to love the everlovin’ FUCK out of this.

A lot.

THIRDED SO HARD!

I would simply have countered with something snappy and immaturely beligerent, far too hung up on the “why does Loki get a pass” bit to answer the actual “when the other villains don’t” question. 

Why is it that people tend to gloss over all the carnage Thor has caused? He murdered and maimed plenty of innocents which were completely unrelated. Why does he get a pass when other characters with similar histories (i.e. Loki) don’t?

But this? Is 10000x more eloquent and 1000000x more useful than my primitive attempt at the Socratic method. silvertonguedgod, I bow to your far superior explanation skills.

Can someone tell me, are the events of Winter Soldier crucial to what’s going to be happening on Agents of Shield this week? I’m not going to get to see the movie til next weekend so I think I have to skip the show this week as well…

i reblog this for all with same q^^

marvel (or aos production members) gave advice to:

  1. watch aos 1x16 (end of the beginning, already aired) before “tws”
  2. watch aos 1x17 (next ep that airs normally) AFTER “tws”.

Thanks for the help! It’s so hard to keep these things straight sometimes…
