Loki has made its way to Disney+ and it is straight-up awesome. Featuring Tom Hiddleston as the lead character Loki, he sets the narrative for his character quickly. And I personally like this element. Loki, only with its first episode, did not fail to answer some questions. The elephant of the room was obviously talked about. Yes, I’m talking about the Endgame time heist. The Disney+ series Loki has explained why the time in Avengers: Endgame did not break the multiverse.
Here’s Why the Endgame Time Heist Didn’t Break The Multiverse
The possibility of time heist being a plot hole can now never be in question. Thanks to the concept of the Time Keepers, Sacred Timeline, and the regulators of the TVA. It was, after all, the Time Keepers that intended for that time heist to happen. It was all part of the Time Keepers’ plan to preserve the main timeline. Thus, none of their activities during the time heist can be classed as an offense.
But we all kind of saw it coming, didn’t we? The Ancient One told Bruce Banner that the Infinity Stones must be returned to exactly the same time and place they were retrieved from. This had to be done in order to prevent a branch reality. Even in the eyes of the TVA, creating a branch reality is a serious offense. But Steve didn’t allow the TVA to intervene. He clipped all the branches himself.
Loki Avoids All Endgame Time Heist Question
After giving us the Time Keepers, Marvel has successfully closed the book on Endgame time travel plotholes. So now, there can be no questions on Captain America creating a timeline branch by returning to the past. Also, the fact that Gamora stayed in the Sacred Timeline despite being a variant after her Infinity War death is also now clear. All of this was on purpose, as intended by the Time Keepers.
But, that is not it. Now, one cannot question the problematic branch created in 2014 by the death of the version of Thanos who leaped forward in time to fight the Avengers in Endgame. But who apart from the Time Keepers were aware of these consequences? You guessed it right. It’s Doctor Strange. Given his foresight into the future, he was able to do so. But for the TVA, Steve broke no rules. Moreover, the timeline branch he created was presumably allowed to exist alongside the Sacred Timeline because it was in service of its preservation. So with just one episode, Loki has answered the biggest question about Avengers: Endgame.
Why Are Loki’s Actions Considered A Crime By The TVA?
So, one can question that the Avengers could make a branch reality but Loki cannot? Why is that? Honestly, it all boils down to just one simple statement – Because the TVA said so. It’s pretty simple. The Time Variance Authority is now bigger and stronger than anything you know in the MCU. They have the Infinity Stones lying around being used as a paperweight. The same Stones that once brought together wiped out half of life in the entire Universe. But if the TVA did not intend it to be, then it’s a crime.
That is why Loki shows the God of Mischief being arrested in the initial moments of the first episode itself. They waste no time in doing what they think is right. Moreover, they have all the track of your life, including the past and the future. As Mobius stated himself, the TVA knows your past and future. Miss Minutes; presentation explained that the Multiverse was thrown in disarray because of the temporal war for supremacy. Hence, Loki’s branch reality is something that is not intended by the TVA. That’s why it’s a crime. So now, we wait for the show to progress in hopes of more clarification.
Loki stars Tom Hiddleston as the God of Mischief, Owen Wilson as Mobius M. Mobius, Gugu Mbatha-Raw as Ravonna Lexus Renslayer, Wunmi Mosaku as Hunter B-15, and Sophia Di Martino, Richard E. Grant, Sasha Lane, and Eugene Cordero in undisclosed roles. The first episode is now streaming on Disney+.
