First things first, the chapter title itself»Journey into MysteryIt is a reference to the comics where Thor and Loki first appeared in issues #83 and #85 respectively.
The episode told us how everyone who is supposed to be abolished by the Time-Changing Body is actually transported into a world known as the Void, which is at the end of time.
It is in this world where we can see many variants of Loki, such as Classic Loki, Kid Loki, Boastful Loki or Lokidrilo / Crocodiloki. If you want to know more about it, don’t forget to check the note loki Episode 4: Secrets, Curiosities and Everything You Need to Know.
referral vote Loki
We also got a glimpse of Loki’s quirky alternative, Loki running for president. This version was featured in his own comic series called Vote for Loki, where Loki was posthumously reborn as a member of a typical American family. This can be considered a less evil version of the character.
After a vigilant terrorist from the criminal organization, Hydra, goes against the candidates for the presidency of the United States, Loki intervenes and makes an appeal to the people and the press as he speaks with the truth about the corruption and falsehood that exists in America. Policy.
This made all the people fed up with the usual politicians to see in Loki a new option that offered hope for the betterment of the country and a decent life for the people.

Loki has always been a wordless being who literally says whatever he thinks of. This was one of the keys for which he got a lot of support from the American community.
In the end he ran and people split into those who support Loki because they are tired of the usual corrupt politicians, and those who oppose genocide like Loki who runs to rule the largest country in the world, however, the journalist begins to investigate Loki and realizes everything he intends to do, since he Orchestrated the hydra attack. This begins to generate mistrust in people.
After a presidential debate in which Loki was questioned about relevant aspects of society such as public health or economic growth, people realized that Loki was not at all prepared to be a candidate.
His entire campaign was fueled by popular discontent and criticism and vilification of politicians and other candidates. He did not contribute anything and claimed that he was with the people when he only attacked his opponents. Does it sound familiar to you?
Fortunately, Loki lost the choice and eventually returned to being the archetypal villain everyone knows. Today’s class showed us a nod to this version of Loki, although many thought they’d delve deeper into it because of the social impact the comic had.
Who the heck is Ellioth, the purple monster?
The episode also introduced us to Alioth, a purple smoke presence that threatens to destroy everything in The Void but who the hell is he?
In the comics, Ellioth is, like the series, a mist monster that feeds on matter and energy, the first entity that was able to break free from the shackles of time.
The only thing that prevents Alioth from going crazy and deciding to take control of everything in his path is another entity with similar characteristics known as Tempus. Both of them are destined to live an eternal battle and that’s why they can’t eliminate each other, as they depend on the other’s existence to survive.
Another enemy of Alioth is Kang the Conqueror, a villain known for his constant manipulation of time in order to defeat those placed before him, such as The Avengers or The Fantastic Four. This villain will first appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the third edition of Ant man and the waspAnd the komania.
A reference to Kang the Conqueror?
For a moment we can see in the background of the destroyed world of Void a tower that looks like The Avengers Tower or The Stark Tower, however, the letters he carries with him are Qeng, referring to Qeng Enterprises, a company owned by Nathaniel Richards/Kang the Conqueror.
In case you were wondering, yes, Kang the Conqueror is a distant descendant of Fantastic Reed Richards, even bearing the same name as Reed’s father, Nathaniel Richards.
In the comics, Nathaniel founded Qeng Enterprises before Kang became the Conqueror, when he was known as Mr. Gryphon, one of the many nicknames Kang has owned throughout history.
Kang was even a small avenger known as Iron Lad, also an Egyptian pharaoh named Rama Tut, or the right hand of the Guardians of Time, known as Emortus. Time travel has its complications.
Anyway, the Qeng Enterprises building can be seen in the fifth episode of lokiCould this mean we’ll see Kang the Conqueror soon?
Did you manage to see Throg?
Today’s episode of loki He gave us another surprise, a very curious one and one that we should be grateful for. And to take a short and brief shot, we can see Throg, a frog with Thor powers.
Wait, my brain: bull frog? So it is with dear Padawan, in one of the most famous and rare stories of the Asgardian deity, Simon Walterson, a student with a bright future who, by chance, turns life into a frog for the rest of his life.
Encountering Loki, he turns Thor into a frog, and encounters Simon and other frogs, who ask him to help him fight some evil mice. A bull in the form of a frog, recovers the magic hammer of Mjolnir and helps them.
Thor and Simon remain good friends, and in the end, Odin and Thor give Simon their own hammer called Frogjolnir, and Throgg becomes the god of thunder. Additionally, Throgg was part of the Pet Avengers, who faced off against Thanos himself.
Specifically, the bottle that Throg is in has a label that says T365, this refers to the comics great bull #365, the number where Throg debuted.
¿A reference to Thanos?
Speaking of Mad Titan, in the chapter there is a subtle reference to him, and that is that during a short shot we can see Thanos’ alien helicopter. And yes dear Padawan, for a while in the Thanos comics he had his own evil helicopter.
Can you imagine Thanos would have flown over Wakanda in infinity war in your helicopter? It wouldn’t be too threatening or threatening, would it? But, as we tell you, Thanos had his own helicopter and we can almost see it destroyed in the background in a scene in loki. Like Captain America said, I got the reference!
A great and accurate reference, not only to comics, but to popular culture in general, is the advent of the cursed Polybius. In case you didn’t know, Polibyus is a creepypasta about a supposed arcade game that exists in real life that has caused seizures in everyone who played it and even incited them to commit suicide.
During a short shot, we can see the Polybius arcade machine behind Classic Loki, right in the hiding place he has with Kid Loki, Boastful Loki, and our lovable hero Loki. How curious are you, don’t you think?
Yellow jacket in the void?
Finally, there is a small and subtle reference to the villain from the first movie of Ant-Man, Yellowjacket, because in one shot you can see the helmet of the villain. Which could mean that after joining the Quantum Realm against his will, he would have been stranded within the bounds of time, and when he tries to leave, he finds himself in The Void.
Remember that thanks to the Quantum Realm, The Avengers were able to travel through time Avengers EndgameWhich is why it doesn’t seem so far-fetched that Yellow Jacket did the same. The problem is that he is stranded in El Vacío.
What do you think? Did you like this episode as much as we do? Did you see a Thanos, Throg, or Polybius helicopter in the background? Let us know in the comments.
