‘JIM’ is fundamentally a book about peace time, which is a weird thing. Loki has not thrown a single punch in the entire run so far. We’re going on 20 issues, not including tie-in issues, in a Marvel Comic and our main character hasn’t done anything physical against anyone else. That’s amazing and I didn’t even notice it. It was just the very natural way the character went. I even gave him a weapon at certain points, but he just never gets it out,” Gillen said with a laugh. “So yes, we have Loki and he sees some horrible stuff and he’s still sensitive enough to actually respond badly to it. He’s just not hardened to it.”
I think this is essentially why I really love JiM, already a bit more than X-Factor (just a bit, and X-Factor is kind of peace time too lol). Loki is not naive but still innocence. We have people around who have all kinds of expectations and doubts about him, and he who has yet to fully know himself. The comic is giving Loki a lot of time for development and a lot of development, I guess if Loki is to turn bad again, this fall of his would appear very much everyone’s failure.
Some comments I saw mentioned that maybe Leah would disappear. That’s quite possible and interesting.
And Gillen admitted to lurking extensively on Tumblr. Heh.
