In the new series we're introduced to Loki when he's in a diner and had made some sort of magic circle out of junk food. Which then starts flying and talking to him. In font other comics use for Mephisto. Loki has apparently summoned a demon through a sausage.
Teddy: I don't know who you are, or why you're flying around like a guardian angel, but please keep doing that.
Miss America Chavez preemptively clamps Loki's mouth shut to keep him from reciting an escape spell. Then her parents show up.
Blue Mom: America, put that god down immediately.
Red Mom: Stop this. Come home. You have a decade worth of studies to catch up on.
Miss America: [releases her hand from Loki's mouth] &$#% that.
Billy and Kate text each other while she's still in outer space with Noh-Varr:
Billy: Kate keeps texting about skrulls. And cute boys.
Teddy: Two of my favorite topics.
Billy: I'm saying we're in deep trouble. Also, hugs.
Loki attempts to sway America, Teddy, and Billy to his side by asking if they've seen Game of Thrones and compares himself to Tyrion Lannister. This only earns him deadpan silence.
And of course Miss America has no idea what Game of Thrones is anyway.
From issue #4 we have Noh-Varr and his inner monologue. And changing the club's music halfway through.
"She is my favorite Hawkeye. I have met another one, though. We didn't make love. He was a man. Also fond of purple."
"Oooh, nice seats."
And moments later we have this:
Hulkling: Your boyfriend is cute.
Kate: He is totally faking it.
Noh-Varr: My faking it is total.
Still under a parasite's spell, Captain America and Thor have a conversation in the Avengers Mansion, being completely oblivious to the fact that an alien spaceship is attacked by hordes of zombies and superhumans right outside the window.
The circumstances are far from funny (Loki has abandoned them and a horde of brainwashed adults are heading their way), but Miss America's Leaning on the Fourth Wall zinger crosses over with Badass Boast.
Billy: It's all my fault. I don't know what to say. Miss America: Oh yeah? I do. But you guys are rated PG-13.
All of the "Yamblr" recap pages done in the form of Tumblr pages are crammed with jokes. If nothing else, Gillen knows his audience. The solicits are also very funny.
Part of the Young Avengers' dimensional travels has Loki saying, "Let's get out of here before something horrible inevitably happens." He turns to find six hideous versions of Exterminatrix (Noh-Varr's old fling) advancing on them. His response? "I hate you, inevitable horrible!"
America is banned from the Korean barbecue restaurant on Earth-212 as a result of her punching Loki through the wall. It's the only time you see her actually look sheepish as she apologizes to the waitress.
In Issue 11, the Running Gag of Loki getting punched in the face. Were it not karmic, you'd almost feel sorry for the guy!
Prodigy asking Miss America if she was drinking before going through her dimensional portal got a smile out of this troper.
As the gang are leaving the party, a Funny Background Event shows Transonic carrying a sleeping Pixie and Doop as the designated driver, scowling with his arms crossed as he stands on the loading ramp.
Billy:And... done. So... I'm the Demiurge. This is nice. What can I do? Anything. Yeah, anything. I'm giving birth to the future right now. And the past. And... oh, this is strange. It's like cradling all reality in my arms. They all look so cute from up here. Oh, it's tempting. But do I really want kids?
The entire first meeting between Billy, Tommy, and Quicksilver is hilarious. The Young Avengers and Magneto are standing with Pietro, while Billy starts to explain that Magneto didn't force them into anything. He's abruptly cut off mid-sentence, with the next panel being identical... except Billy and Quicksilver are gone and everyone is staring in shock at the space where they used to be. The next page shows that Quicksilver simply picked Billy up, threw him over his shoulder, and ran. Even better, Billy's just so nonchalant about hanging over his sort-of uncle's shoulder while the landscape blurs past, like he's picked up like a sack of potatoes and dragged around at superspeed all the time.
Billy: I have to be honest with you... this is not how I was hoping we'd meet.
And then Pietro and Tommy have a race. While Billy is still hanging over Pietro's shoulder.
Tommy: I suppose it must be a blow to the old ego, knowing there's a version of you out there that's younger, better looking... and faster.
