I have a question about three tropes.

  • "Normal Fishina Tiny Pond: By Asgardian standards, he's a Squishy Wizard."
  • "Overshadowedby Awesome: To the rest of Asgard, part of the reason for his self esteem issues."
  • "Magic Knight: Along with his cunning and sorcery, Loki is also a fairly formidable physical fighter who uses capoeira, knives, and a staff to hold his own in battle against heroes such as Thor. However, by Asgardian standards, he's a Squishy Wizard."

Is actually Loki weak by Asgardian standards?

-Of fact, Loki seems to be the fourth strongest Asgardian. (Odin, Thor and Heimdal are the first three.)

He's definitely weaker than Heimdall.

Anyway, in the opening fight of the original Thor Loki was definitely a lot less effective against the frost giants than the rest. His style seems better for one-on-one encounters, though.

In one of the deleted scenes from "Dark World" Frigga and Thor discuss how Loki's powerful magic was a gift from her. I assumed, as I'm sure most people do, that his magic was inherited, thus a product of Jotenheim, not Asgardian as it appears it really is. What trope is this? Aside from All There in the Manual, I suppose.

Anyone got a picture of Loki that shows more of his outfit, like Thor and Odin?

Who is the "Perrikles" mentioned in Malekith's entry? Google doesn't reveal anything useful to me, and the only one I can think of is the Greek statesman Pericles, which seems like an odd comparison.

EDIT: I've hidden the Composite Character entry for Malekith until someone can provide the necessary context.

I'm considering redirecting this page to Marvel Cinematic Universe, since it seems redundant to have two pages listing the same information, or less. Any responses?

Actually, since that page is going to have to be split due to it getting too large, it may be the other way around and it'll be split to the separate film pages.

Then where will SHIELD, Chitauri, and Stan Lee go?

Well, they can remain on the MCU page for the time being, now that the current issue of page length has been averted.

Type the word in the image. This goes away if you get known.
If you can't read this one, hit reload for the page.
The next one might be easier to see.

How well does it match the trope?
