Unlike other villains, Loki has proven himself to be a cunning guy who has tricked everyone into doing what he wants i.e create chaos where there was none. So when in 2011, Loki was transformed into a child, many doubted if this was really true or just one of his crazy tricks. The Kid Loki did not remember any of his past actions and was more of a big heart than his former self, but former adversaries(basically everyone) were always put into an alert mode because he was LOKI still.
(Not)Born This Way
One of the most twisted things Loki has ever done was when he transformed into a lady. His transformation shocked the other gods and he used woman’s coercion to get everyone to trust her. He had actually taken over the body of Lady Sif but no one suspected his ruse. He then went back in time, killed Odin’s father, Bor, arranged for Odin to adopt him in the first place, convinced the Asgardians that the heroic Beta Ray Bill was a shape-shifting Skrull, and kind of weirdly enjoyed being in the body that Thor had sex with.Thor soon found out but he had already formed an alliance with Doctor Doom that led to a lot of Asgardian deaths.
Loki is often calculated when he makes his move and he has often created villains, just to make the world a more violent place. Villains like Jinku the Lava Man, the Weather Maker, The Executioner, the Enchantress, the Super-Skrull, Surtur, Cobra and his partner Mr. Hyde, and Skaggs were all Loki’s doing, giving them powers and setting little seedlings into their minds about what should happen.
