Marvel’s Loki comic author supported this present line’s utilization in the series
Daniel Kibblesmith, author of Marvel’s Loki: The God Who Fell to Earth, supported the utilization of his “God of Outcasts” line from his comic in Disney+ series Loki.
The author posted his appreciation on Twitter, contrasting his original comic panel including the line to the broadcast variation, where it is spoken so anyone might hear by Classic Loki, depicted by Richard E. Award. “I’m Loki, god of outcasts,” the comic scene reads, “They see themselves in me. And I in them.” The comparison was hence retweeted by Loki chief Kate Herron, who said thanks to Kibblesmith for his contribution. “I gave a panel of [Daniel Kibblesmith]’s incredible comic to Tom [Hiddleston] on our first day of shooting. Thanks for letting us use your words Daniel and writing Loki so beautifully.”
In the show, the line is said in Episode 5, “Journey into Mystery,” which is named for the Marvel comic series that presented the antihero and supervillain. After Loki’s pruning transports him to the void toward the finish of time, he runs over four different variations of himself, who salvage him from the cloud-like monster, Alioth. In the wake of arriving at the variations’ shelter, Classic Loki clarifies his Nexus Event, whereupon he says, “Because we, my friends, have but one part to play: the God of Outcasts.”
Made by Michael Waldron and directed by Kate Herron, Loki stars Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Owen Wilson as Mobius M. Mobius, Gugu Mbatha-Raw as Ravonna Renslayer, Wunmi Mosaku as Hunter B-15, Tara Strong as Miss Minutes, Eugene Cordero as Casey, Sasha Lane as Hunter C-20 and Sophia Di Martino as Sylvie, with Richard E.
