Heat Exhaustion Symptoms
- Muscle cramps
- Pale skin
- Profuse sweating
- Sunken, dark eyes from dehydration
Do I need to remind you what he looked like during this entire scene?
He’s sweaty, his blood circulation isn’t working well due to vasoconstriction (namely, look at how pale his lips are,) and he’s got dark, sunken in eyes. Now we’ve got a point in which he trips and almost falls for some inexplicable reason. Well, let me ask you this.
How do you torture a frost giant?
Whedon wouldn’t just put in clips like this for no reason. He’s trying to show us something. The Loki we see here in this scene is not a healthy Loki, it’s a Loki who is weak and pale and probably focused on just staying conscious—a Loki who has probably been tortured by Thanos into submission and then sent out to do his dirty work for him, that way Thanos will never get the blame. Loki is just the puppet in the grand master scheme of things. Thanos is using him.
The Loki we see in Thor is radically different from the Loki we see in The Avengers. Sure, post-Thor, Loki is emotionally unstable, and maybe a little nuts, but he wasn’t a murderer. The only reason he went after Jotunheim is because he was having identity issues. Murder wasn’t something that was normal in his repertoire, yet we see him doing it frequently in The Avengers. The Loki we see at the end of Thor doesn’t want to live, let alone take over an entire realm that he had no interest in before. Something drastic must have happened between the two movies to have made Loki have such a huge character change.
It’s said that Thanos caught/rescued Loki after he fell from the Bifrost. Well, what did he do after that? Thanos is known for having telepathic powers, and since he had to have caught Loki knowing who he was and how strong he was, he likely broke into Loki’s mind to find out all of his fears and weaknesses. And once he found out all of Loki’s darkest secrets, it was easy to break him. He and the Chitauri took the Loki we saw in Thor and tortured and corrupted him until he was warped into their own personal demigod, ready to do their bidding. Why do you think Loki spouts off all these quotes about how “Freedom is life’s great lie,” and “In the end, you will always kneel”? He’s projecting.
So, when he trips? That’s the aftershocks of torture. That’s a Loki, weakened and struggling to stay upright, pushing forward through the pain because, otherwise?
“You will long for something as sweet as pain.”
He has to keep going because the alternative isn’t a question.
Reblogging this photoset again because OH MY WORD LOKI NO.
^ that response is why I’m reblogging
NO MY BABY
I caught this a few times in and wibbled, but I figured it was because getting SHAT OUT by the Tesseract like that probably wasn’t the most pleasant of experiences, and yes, probably very hot (Especially considering the panels up the side of the landing pad were glowing red with heat after the energy left his person) ON TOP OF whatever heat-based torture he had to endure. I hadn’t really considered that as a means of tormenting him, but it does make perfect sense. Headcanon Accepted. It really wouldn’t have done to have been out in that desert in the daytime, he had pretty good timing, but I suspect that too was intentional.
I also noticed that the SHIELD agent he took with him makes sure he’s okay and picks up his pace to place a hand on his back and keep him upright. That’s a damn good agent, considering people still retain a great deal of their personality (Selvig’s general kookiness and love of science, Clint’s dry and quick wit) that guy’s a good man.

This scene will forever give me shivers
THE most underrated scene in the entire movie. It was perfect. And do you know how often I see gif sets of it? This is the second one I’ve seen since the movie came out (It’s been over 5 months, now).
So let’s just pause for a moment from reblogging gifs of Tony’s sass, Loki’s sex appeal, or Bruce’s fluffiness and just appreciate this nameless, old, German guy and how, even though he knew he would probably die, he stood up to a tyrant to prove that the human race wouldn’t give up their freedom so easily.
emily why the fuck you think it necessary to give me these feels
Seeing as that took place in Germany, think that there’s no better place that that scene could have taken place in. Givin’ the time frame, he or his parents could have easily lived through WWII. They bowed to a tyrant once; Never again.
Learn from your elders people- let him be an example.
So I’m actually stunned, because I think that I’ve just come up with something insightful in regards to Loki that I’ve never heard or seen mentioned before. Considering how poured over and deeply analyzed this character is, I’m shocked that there’s anything left. Maybe somebody else has mentioned this before, but here goes anyway:
When Natasha is interrogating Loki, she says that she wants to save Hawkeye to help make up for all the “red in her ledger.” Up until this point in the conversation, Loki has been his regular calm, amused self. But when Natasha says this, he snaps, berating her for being childish and sentimental, screaming at her, making a point to say the most vicious things to her possible, and altogether losing his shit far beyond anything else we’ve seen from his character. Personally, it frightened me more than when he jambs that thing into the guy’s eye and just smiles.
So we should ask ourselves, why did Loki lose his shit in that moment? Why did he react to Natasha’s comment with such venom? It didn’t do anything to directly serve his purposes, so that makes me inclined to think that it wasn’t calculated. He was having an honest emotional response to what Natasha had said.
I realized, what their “conversation” boils down to is Natasha talking about redemption and Loki claiming that redemption is a pipe dream. When he insists that Natasha will never be able to make up for her past, it becomes clear that Loki is really talking about himself, and how he is certain that there is no hope for his own redemption. And I think he goes on to say such vicious things just to prove his point. To remind himself that this is who he is now and that there is no going back. When Loki screams at Natasha, he is really screaming at whatever small part of himself still wants to turn back from the dark path he’s set himself on.
Loki breaks my heart.
I’ve never noticed this before…. Fandral you scoundrel.
