Loki as brother is missing Thor, but Loki as the future lord of the world must forget him
This art is fucking beautiful, man.
Loki is essentially two minds crammed into one body. One half is the power-crazed god of chaos who wants the Tesseract, who wants dominion over the realms, who wants to see his former captors (how he view his “family”) on their knees for what they did to him. The other half is the loyal son of Odin, brother of Thor, prince of Asgard; the boy of two worlds.
Both personalities are warring against each other constantly and it’s an exhausting struggle. What we saw in The Avengers was the power-crazed half. He was so beaten and scared of Thanos/the Chitauri, he didn’t care who got in his way as he attempted to reach his goal so he could spare his own life and follow through on his end of the bargain. However, there were moments when the other half made an appearance (on the mountain, atop Stark Tower), and those were the most heartbreaking moments in the film. And they were always with Thor.
Thor is the only one who will ever be able to get through to Loki. He’s the only one who will always love Loki as he did when they were still brothers, before everything was torn out from beneath their feet. (Just look at the pain on his face, I can’t even imagine what he’s going through.)
For Loki, Thor is his greatest weakness and his greatest strength. The power-crazed half of his psyche wants nothing more than to hate his false brother, but the still-innocent half loves Thor so strongly that it renders the power-crazed half unable to kill Thor even when given the opportunity.
It’s going to be a terrific fight, and Loki knows Thor is the only one capable of saving him from himself. The only question that remains is: will he have the strength to let him?
