Loki: Where Mischief Lies

Loki has always struggled to fit in with his family; not a warrior like his brother Thor, too magically gifted for his father, too mischievous and mercurial for Asgardian society, he just longs to belong somewhere.  Loki finds his somewhere with Amora, a student of magic and the next Sorceress.  When the two get caught breaking into a restricted area, Odin banishes Amora to Earth to live and die as a human and forbids Loki from practicing and using his magic.  Resentful of his father’s anger, Loki becomes further estranged from his family.

 

Years later, Odin sends Loki to Victorian era Earth to track down and stop the use of Asgardian magic that is being blamed for a number of deaths.  Loki sees his assignment as an exile from all he knows-Earth has no magic and the humans are uninteresting and short lived.  At first uncaring of the situation, Loki eventually takes it upon himself to complete the assignment and prove his worth to his father and brother.  Along the way Loki meets and interesting human, Theo, who is part of an organization that polices such unusual situations.  As the two work to together to find the culprit and stop the murders, they become friends and maybe something more.  But a reckoning is coming and Loki will have to make a choice that will not only change him but the Marvel Universe as a whole.
