  • 1st appearance of Ikol, a future Loki who is merely an echo of Loki's younger self
  • [Theory - throughout the first three phases of the MCU, Loki‘s Hero’s Journey began as a villain and ended as a martyr.

Loki might travel to the future where he encounters himself as an old, failed god and then to his past to influence his younger self to avoid a bleak future. A mischievous young Loki could outwit his older self and travel to the time of the present MCU. Reminder: this is only a theory]
