Star Wars Cosplay Theater: Loki finds your lack of faith disturbing

And now it's time for another sunny, funny, at-least-it's-not-Episode One-y installment of

Tonight's exciting episode: Episode 73: A Norse Hope! Standing in for Lord Vader tonight will be the god of mischief, Thor's villainous brother, and everybody's 2012 internet crush Loki! As our scene begins, Zarrko the Tomorrow Man (yes, it actually says that on his driver's license!) has told his partner in an uneasy rebel alliance against Thor not to frighten him with Loki's sorcerer's ways, and that his sad devotion to the ancient Norse religion has not helped him conjure up the stolen Scandinavian scrolls, or given him clairvoyance enough to find Avengers Mansion (ignoring the general knowledge that it's here). To the surprise of no one, except perhaps the portly gentleman in the rear (a special guest appearance by Orca the Man-Whale, on special loan from Sub-Mariner Comics), Loki does not take kindly to this. That said, when does Loki take kindly to anything? It's like not suffering fools gladly. Who does that? Loki is more the type to gladly make fools suffer:

Panels from Thor v.1 #441 (Late December 1991); co-plot and script by Tom DeFalco; co-plot and layouts by Ron Frenz; finishes by Al Milgrom; colors by Mike Rockwitz; letters by Mike Heisler

Later, Loki was seen chopping off the hands of superheroes and telling them he's was their father. He wasn't really. He just likes cutting off hands.

Tune in next time to Star Wars Cosplay Theater where you'll find Lieutenant Jeb Stuart and the Haunted Tank pretending they're Han Solo and the Millennium Falcon! Until then, as they say in the Star Wars films: "You just watch yourself. We’re wanted men. I have the death sentence on 12 systems!"

Yeah, ordering around a God, does seem to be a...slightly foolish thing to do. Poor Orca looks simply horrified.

So does that Kirby toaster over there. "I am not the droid you're looking for... I am not the droid you're looking for..."
