tbf I am NOT okay with how he corners him in a space where he can’t escape. It screams of bullying and like prison guard brutality. I don’t like this side of Thor, I’ll freely admit it.
yes let’s assume thor is doing this for no good reason (because that’s SO typical of him to HATE LOKI) yeah let’s make it even because it’s only fair and just for an IMPRISONED WAR CRIMINAL to be on even ground with someone he’s tried to kill twice now who is burdened with the task of cleaning up the messes loki left
i see where the logic lies, yes, i’ve truly seen the light
WHY ARE SPIDER-MAN AND LOKI AND HOT DOGS A THING???
because it is a really good thing!!!!!!!
fun fact: spidey and loki are buddies because spidey saved loki’s daughter once.
Comic Appreciation → So let’s talk about magic. We can dicker on the exact rules, if you like. There are all sorts of grimoires and cryptonomicons. I’ve got an AD&D manual somewhere. At the core though…

lol the amount of people who think loki and thranduil are really really similar.
i think it says less about how people see thranduil and more about the lengths that people will go to so they can turn loki into something he’s not.
loki is the villain. thranduil, while antagonistic, IS NOT A VILLAIN. in fact, by the end of the book (spoiler alert!) he’s very fond of bilbo and the two are totally bros. and he helps save the day.
thranduil is old, hardened, paranoid of outsiders, ill-tempered but he is not cruel or malicious. he didn’t send his troups to fight against the dragon not because he didn’t care but because he wasn’t willing to sacrifice his people to a lost cause. his dislike of dwarves probably stems from their murder of king thingol and their contribution to the fall of doriath.
loki isn’t nearly as compassionate as thranduil has shown to be. loki kills people for the fun of it and wants to rule humanity because he thinks he’s superior. thranduil stops his own mission because humans are suffering and he decides to help them.
by saying the two characters are similar you’re either turning thranduil into the villain he’s not or turning loki into the hero he’s not. either way, you’re misenterpreting and over-simplifying both characters. wow congrats.
these dudes are not the misuderstood woobies you think they are.
