Sixteen reasons why we can’t help but love Loki

Even though he’s technically considered a villain in the Marvel universe, there’s just something that makes us constantly root for Loki. No matter what we do, we can’t help but love him.

As much as we feel like traitors saying it, we may go to the movie theater or pop in our DVDs to see Thor, but we stay for Loki. We feel so lucky to have been able to enjoy Loki in all of his glory in three separate movies. Well, we haven’t technically seen Thor: The Dark World yet at the time of publication, but we know that we’re going to enjoy watching Loki. Who wouldn’t? It’s Loki!

We’re not sure if it’s the way the character has been written, Tom Hiddleston’s portrayal, or a combination of the two that makes Loki such an irresistible character. But, regardless of what makes us relate to and really care for Loki, we’re just happy to have him in our lives. We do know one thing though: We can’t wait to see what Thor: The Dark World brings for Loki and our love for him.

Even though there are numerous reasons why we love Loki, here are just a few of our favorites.
