Loki is the Norse God of Mischief, Thor’s trickster brother, and moral flip-flopper of the Marvel Universe. However, comicbook readers and fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe tend to forget that his adventures have granted him powers that make him an unforgettable force and threat to heroes and villains. Here is a list of ten of Loki’s powers that turned him into one of the Marvel Universe’s most adaptable anti-heroes/villains.
10. Transference Of Power
Loki has been known to boost the physical, telekinetic, and telepathic abilities of his allies, sometimes begrudgingly to his brother, Thor, to survive. He can even create new superhumans on a whim, permanently granting them powers.
9. Sorcerer Supreme
With the title lifted from Dr. Stephen Strange, Loki’s magical skills are far more reinforced. Not only that, but he also has the help of the Vishanti a trio of super-powered beings comprised of Agamotto the All-Seeing, Omnipotent Oshtur, and Hoary Hoggoth.
8. Super-Human Speed
In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Loki’s speed, while not on par with speedsters like Quicksilver, was fast enough to catch one of Hawkeye’s arrows in mid-air. His Frost Giant and Asgardian ancestry endow him with super-human reflexes, making him far more agile than mere humans.
7. Shapeshifting and Possession
Loki had previously been a shapeshifter, forming himself into animals that still resembled his appearance. In Secret Invasion: Dark Reign, he took his abilities to a new level, possessing Lady Sif, moving her soul into an elderly woman’s body and taking over her presence.
