Marvel Studios 10th Anniversary
Loki is one of few powerful characters from the supernatural realm of Asgard, who have been worshipped as divine being. Odin, when the leader of the Asgardian gods, led his people in a war against their enemy, the frost giants from the land of Jotunheim (one of the nine worlds of Asgard). Laufey, king of the frost giants, was killed in battle and the rest of the giants were defeated. Surveying the spoils of war, the Asgardians found a small Asgardian god-sized child hidden at the giants main fortress. This infant was Loki, whom Laufey had kept covered due to his shame over his son’s small size. Odin remembered his father Bor’s dying words to adopt the son of a father killed by his hands; Odin recalled his dad Bor’s perishing words to receive the child of a dad executed by his hands; Odin embraced Loki into his own family, bringing up Loki like a child alongside with his biological son, Thor.
