] Jane Foster
: [slaps Loki
] That was for New York! Loki
: I like her.
: After all this time, now you come to visit me, brother? Why? To mock? Thor
: I need your help. And I wish I could trust you... Loki
: If you did, you'd be the fool I always took you for.
: Born to be a king, I ask one thing in return: a front seat to watch Earth burn.
[Thor and Loki commandeer a Harrow
: Look, why don't you let me take over? I'm clearly the better pilot! Thor
: Is that right? Out of the two of us, which one can ACTUALLY fly?
[the Harrow takes out a building
: Not a word...
: [to Odin during his trial
] It's not that I don't love our little talks, it's just... I don't love them.
: [about Frigga
] You had her tricks, but I had her trust! Loki
: Trust? Was that her last expression, trust? While you let her die? Thor
: What good were you in your cell? Loki
: Who put me there? WHO PUT ME THERE? Thor
: YOU KNOW DAMN WELL WHO! YOU KNOW DAMN WELL!
: [lets go of Loki
] She wouldn't want us to fight. Loki
: Well, she wouldn't exactly be shocked. Thor
] I wish I could trust you. Loki
] Trust my rage.
: Malekith! I am Loki of Jotunheim, and I have brought you a gift!
[throws Jane to the ground
: I only ask for one thing in return; a good seat from which to watch Asgard burn!
: Did she suffer? Thor
: I did not come here to share our grief. Instead I offer you the chance of a far richer sacrament... Loki
: Go on. Thor
: I know you seek vengeance as much as I do. You help me escape Asgard, and I will grant it to you. Vengeance. And afterward, this cell. Loki
: You must be truly desperate to come to me for help. What makes you think you can trust me? Thor
: I don't. Mother did. You should know that when we fought each other in the past, I did so with a glimmer of hope that my brother was still in there somewhere. That hope no longer exists to protect you. You betray me, and I will kill you. Loki
: Hm. When do we start?
: [tries to steer the boat into a tiny crevice in the mountain wall
] If it were easy, everyone would do it. Thor
: Are you mad? Loki
: All this because Loki desires a throne. Loki
: It is my birthright! Odin
: Your birthright was to die as a child! Cast out on a frozen rock. If I had not taken you in, you would not be here now to hate me. Loki
: If I am for the axe, then, for mercy's sake, just... swing it!
: This is so unlike you, brother. So... clandestine. Are you sure you wouldn't rather punch your way out? Thor
: If you keep talking, I might.
: [aboard a Dark Elf ship
] I thought you said you knew how to fly this thing. Thor
: [looking at the controls, clearly lost
] I said 'how hard could it be.'
: Brother, whatever you're doing, I suggest you do it faster.
: [looks at Jane
] What I could do with the power flowing through those veins... Thor
: It would consume you.
: [on Jane
] Say goodbye. Thor
: Not this day! Loki
: This day, the next, a hundred years, it's nothing! It's a heartbeat. You'll never be ready. The only woman whose love you prized will be snatched from you. Thor
: And will that satisfy you? Loki
: Satisfaction's not in my nature! Thor
: Surrender's not in mine!
: One son who wanted the throne too much, and other who will not take it. Is this my legacy? Thor
: Loki died with honour. I shall try to live the same. Is that not legacy enough?
[offers the hammer
: It belongs to you, if you are worthy of it. Thor
: I shall try to be. Odin
: I can not give you my blessing, nor can I wish you good fortune. Thor
: I know.
[turns to leave
: If I were proud of the man my son has become, even that I could not say, it would speak only from my heart. Go, my son. Thor
: Thank you, Father.
: [appears from Odin's guise
] No... thank you.
: And what of Thor? You'll make that witless oaf king while I rot in chains? Odin
: Thor has to strive to undo the damage you have done. He will bring order to the Nine Realms and then, yes... he will be king.
: [turns Thor into Sif
] Mmm, brother, you look ravishing! Thor
: It will hurt no less when I kill you in this form. Loki
: Very well. Perhaps you prefer one of your new companions, given that you seem to like them so much.
[turns into Captain America
: Oh, this is much better. Costume's a bit much... so tight. But the confidence, I can feel the righteousness surging. Hey, you wanna have a rousing discussion about truth,honor, patriotism? God bless America...
[Thor destroys a statue of Bor
: Well done, you just decapitated your grandfather!
: [holds up his shackles
] You still don't trust me? Thor
: Would you?
: ...No, I wouldn't!
: I will tell Father you died with honour. Loki
: I didn't do it for him.
: [observing the Marauders in prison
] Odin continues to bring me new friends. How thoughtful!
: You know this is wonderful! This a tremendous idea! Let's steal the biggest, most obvious ship in the universe and escape in that! Flying around the city, smash it into everything in sight and everyone will see it! It's brilliant Thor! It's truly brillian...
[Thor hurls Loki out of the ship, and jumps out with Jane in his arms... into a skiff piloted by Fandral
] I see your time in the dungeon has made you no less graceful, Loki! Loki
: You lied to me! I'm impressed.
: [as Kurse stares at him
] You might want to take the stairs to the left.
: Betray him and I'll kill you. Loki
: It's good to see you too, Sif.
: If you even THINK about betraying him... Loki
: You'll kill me? Evidently there will be a line.
: [mockingly comes to attention before Odin and laughs
] I really don't see what all the fuss is about. Odin
: Do you not truly feel the gravity of your crimes? Wherever you go there is war, ruin and death! Loki
: I went down to Midgard to rule the people of Earth as a benevolent God, just like you. Odin
: We are not gods! We're born, we live, we die, just as humans do. Loki
: Give or take five thousand years.
: [to his mother
] Is that how I am to while away eternity... Reading?
: I am a fool... Thor
: Stay with me. Stay with me!
: You can at least furnish me with a weapon. My dagger, something!
[Thor puts something in Loki's hands...
: At last, a little common sense.
[Thor handcuffs him
] And I thought you liked tricks.
: Thor! After all this time now you come to visit me! Why? Have you come to gloat? To mock? Thor
: Loki, enough! No more illusions.
[illusion fades, everything in sight is broken, Loki is sitting on the ground looking devastated
: Now you see me, brother!
[Thor flies the Harrow, but is off to a rocky start and destroys a lot of columns in the building
: I think you missed a column.
: [as he kills Kurse
] See you in Hel, monster!
: You are a vain, greedy, cruel boy! Thor
: And you are an old man and a fool! Odin
: Yes... I was a fool, to think you were ready. Loki
: Father... Odin
: [to Loki
] FIE! Odin
: Thor Odinson... you have betrayed the express command of your king. Through your arrogance and stupidity, you've opened these peaceful realms and innocent lives to the horror and desolation of war! You are unworthy of these realms, you're unworthy of your title, you're unworthy... of the loved ones you have betrayed! I now take from you your power! In the name of my father and his father before, I, Odin Allfather, cast you out!
[Dr Selvig wanders around an underground base
] Nick Fury
: [greeting him
] Dr. Selvig. Erik Selvig
: So, you're the man behind all this? It's quite a labyrinth. I was thinking that you had taken me down here to kill me. Nick Fury
: I've been hearing about the New Mexico situation. Your work has impressed a lot of people who are much smarter than I am. Erik Selvig
: I had a lot to work with: the Foster theory, a gateway to another dimension... it's unprecedented...
[Fury doesn't respond
] Erik Selvig
: ...isn't it? Nick Fury
: Legend tells us one thing; history, another. But, every now and then, we find something that belongs to both.
[Fury opens a suitcase, which contains a small cube
] Erik Selvig
: What is it? Nick Fury
: Power, Doctor. If we figure out how to tap it, maybe unlimited power.
[Loki is seen in a reflection, smiling
: [whispers to Selvig
] Well, I guess that's worth a look. Erik Selvig
: Well, I guess that's worth a look.
: Loki, this is madness! Loki
: Is it madness? Is it? IS IT? I don't know what happened on Earth to make you so soft! Don't tell me it was that woman?... Oh, it was. Well maybe, when we're done here, I'll pay her a visit myself!
[Thor gets mad
: I never wanted the throne, I only ever wanted to be your equal!
: Loki, you must go to the All-Father and convince him to change his mind. Loki
: And if I do, then what? I love Thor more dearly than any of you, but you know what he is. He's arrogant, he's reckless, he's dangerous! You saw how he was today. Is that what Asgard needs from its King?
[Loki walks off
: He may speak for the good of Asgard, but he's always been jealous of Thor! Volstagg
: We should be grateful to him. He saved our lives. Hogun
: Laufey said, there were traitors in the house of Odin. A master of magic could bring three Jotuns into Asgard. Fandral
: Loki's always been one for mischief, but you're talking about something else entirely!
: [hanging from the edge of the Bifrost
] I could have done it, Father! I could have done it! For you! For all of us! Odin
: No, Loki.
[Loki stares for a moment, then loosens his grip
: Loki, no... NO!
[Loki falls into a wormhole
: Look at you. The mighty Thor! With all your strength! And what good does it do you now? Do you hear me, brother? There's nothing you can do!
[Thor smashes the Bifrost
: What are you doing? If you destroy the Bridge, you'll never see her again! Thor
: Forgive me, Jane!
: Why have you done this? Loki
: To prove to Father that I am a worthy son! When he wakes, I will have saved his life, I will have destroyed that race of monsters, and I will be true heir to the throne! Thor
: You can't kill an entire race! Loki
: Why not?... And what is this new found love for the Frost Giants? You, could have killed them all with your bare hands! Thor
: I've changed. Loki
: So have I. Now fight me!
: Why don't you tell her? How you sent the Destroyer to kill our friends, to kill me! Frigga
: What? Loki
: Well, I must have been enforcing father's last command. Thor
: You're a talented liar, brother. Always have been. Loki
: It's good to have you back. Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to destroy Jotunheim!
: What troubles you, gatekeeper? Heimdall
: I turned my gaze upon you in Jotunheim but could neither see you nor hear you. You were shrouded from me like the Frost Giants that had entered this realm. Loki
: Perhaps your senses have weakened after your many years of service. Heimdall
: Or perhaps someone has found a way to hide that which he does not wish me to see. Loki
: You have great power, Heimdall. Did Odin fear you? Heimdall
: No. Loki
: And why is that? Heimdall
: Because he is my king, and I am sworn to obey him. Loki
: He was your king. And you're sworn to obey me now. Yes? Heimdall
: Yes. Loki
: Then you'll open the Bifrost to no-one! Until I have repaired the damage that my brother has done!
: Tell me, Loki, how did you lead the Jotuns into Asgard? Loki
: Do you think the Bifrost is the only way in and out of this realm? There are passages between worlds to which even you, with all your gifts, are blind. But I have need of them no longer, now that I am king. And I say, for your act of treason, you are relieved of your duties as gatekeeper and no longer citizen of Asgard! Heimdall
: Then I need no longer obey you!
[draws his sword
: The house of Odin is full of traitors... Thor
: Do not dishonor my father's name with your lies! King Laufey
: Your father is a murderer and a thief! And why have YOU come, to talk of peace? You long for battle, you crave it! You're nothing more than a boy trying to prove himself a man! Thor
: Be warned, this boy grows tired of your mockery!
[Jotuns surround the Asgardians
: Thor, stop and think. Look around you, we're outnumbered... Thor
: Know your place, brother! King Laufey
: You know not what your actions would unleash... I do. Go now, while I still allow it.
[Loki has to restrain Thor
: We will accept your most gracious offer. Come on, brother...
[Thor turns to leave
] Frost Giant Sentry
: Run back home, little princess. Loki
[Thor smashes down the Sentry
[Loki appears in Jotunheim
] King Laufey
: Kill him. Loki
: After all I've done for you? King Laufey
: ...So you're the one who showed us the way into Asgard. Loki
: That was just a bit of fun, really. To ruin my brother's big day, and to protect the realm from his idiotic rule for a while longer. King Laufey
: I will hear you. Loki
: I will conceal you and a handful of your soldiers, lead you into Odin's chambers, and you can slay him where he lies. King Laufey
: Why not kill him yourself? Loki
: I suspect that the Asgardians would not take kindly to a king who had murdered his predecessor. Once Odin is dead, I will return the Casket to you...
[Laufey stands, his expression hungry
: And you can return Jotunheim to all its, uh... glory. King Laufey
: I... accept.
[Laufey is about to kill Odin
] King Laufey
: It's said you can still hear and see what transpires around you. I hope it's true, so that you may know your death came at the hand of Laufey.
[Loki strikes him down from behind
: And YOUR death came by the son of Odin!
: I will not fight you, brother! Loki
: I'm not your brother! I never was!
: [activates the Destroyer
] Ensure my brother does not return. Destroy everything.
[Loki appears in front of a fuming Thor
: It's unwise to be in my company right now, brother. Today was to be my day of triumph! Loki
: It'll come, in time. If it's any consolation, I think you're right. About the Frost Giants, about Laufey, about everything. If they were able to slip past Asgard's defenses once, who's to say they won't try again? Next time with an army. Thor
: Exactly! Loki
: There's nothing you can do without defying Father.
[Thor looks at Loki
: No! No, no, no, no! I know that look! Thor
: It's the only way to ensure the safety of our borders! Loki
: Thor, it's madness!
[Thor, Loki, Sif and the Warriors Three meet Heimdall
: Leave this to me. Gatekeeper, we seek... Heimdall
: You're not dressed warmly enough. Loki
: I'm sorry? Heimdall
: You think you can deceive me. Loki
: You must be mistaken... Thor
: Enough! Heimdall, may we pass? Heimdall
: Never has an enemy escaped my watch until this day. I want to know how it happened. Thor
: And tell no one where we have gone until we return. Understand? Volstagg
: [to Loki
] What's the matter, silver tongue turned to lead?
[Sif and the Warriors Three enter Asgard's throne room
: Allfather, we must speak with you urgently... Loki
: [on the throne
] My friends. Fandral
: Where is Odin? Loki
: Father has fallen into the Odinsleep. Mother fears he may never awaken again. Sif
: We would speak with her... Loki
: She has refused to leave my father's bedside. You can bring your urgent matter to me, your King.
[Sif and Warriors Three hesitantly kneel before Loki
: My King, we would ask that you end Thor's banishment. Loki
: My first command cannot be to undo the Allfather's last. We're on the brink of war with Jotunheim. Our people need a sense of continuity, in order to feel safe in these difficult times. All of us must stand together, for the good of Asgard. Fandral
: Yes... of course. Loki
: Good. Then you will wait for my word. Volstagg
] If I may, beg the indulgence of your Majesty, to perhaps reconsider... Loki
: We're done!
[while interrogating Thor, Coulson steps out for a moment...
: Loki. What are you doing here? Loki
: [as a SHIELD agent
] I had to see you. Thor
: What's happened? Tell me, is it Jotunheim? Let me explain to Father... Loki
: Father is dead. Thor
: What? Loki
: Your banishment, the threat of a new war... it was too much for him to bear. You mustn't blame yourself. I know that you loved him. I tried to tell him so, but he wouldn't listen. It was so cruel to put the hammer within your reach knowing that you could never lift it. The burden of the throne has fallen to me now. Thor
: Can I come home? Loki
: The truce with Jotunheim is conditional upon your exile. Thor
: Yes, but... couldn't we find a way...? Loki
: And Mother has forbidden your return. This is goodbye, brother. I'm so sorry. Thor
: No. I am sorry. Thank you for coming here. Loki
: Farewell. Thor
[Loki leaves, just as Coulson returns
] Agent Coulson
: [having heard Thor
] "Goodbye?" I just got back.
: How do I look? Loki
: Like a king.
: We should never have let him go... Fandral
: At least he's only banished, not dead. Which is what we'd all be if that guard hadn't told Odin where we'd gone. Volstagg
: How did the guard even know? Loki
: I told him. Fandral
: What? Loki
: I told him to go to Odin, after we'd left. He should be flogged for taking so long, we should never have reached Jotunheim... Volstagg
: YOU told the guard? Loki
: I saved our lives, and Thor's! I had no idea Father would banish him for what he did.
[Thor is smashing down Frost Giants
: Thor! Loki
: WE MUST GO! Thor
: Then go!
[Odin discovers Loki holding the Casket of Ancient Winters
: STOP! Loki
: Am I cursed? Odin
: No. Loki
: What am I? Odin
: You are my son.
[Loki turns and looks at Odin
: [features briefly blue and chill
] What more than that?
: The Casket wasn't the only thing you took from Jotunheim that day, was it? Odin
: No. In the aftermath of the battle I went into the temple and I found a baby. Small for a Giant's offspring, abandoned, suffering, left to die. Laufey's son. Loki
: Laufey's son? Odin
: Yes. Loki
: Why? You were knee-deep in Jotun blood. Why would you take me? Odin
: You were an innocent child. Loki
: No. You took me for a purpose. What was it?... TELL ME! Odin
: I thought we could unite our kingdoms one day. Bring about an alliance, bring about permanent peace... through you. Loki
: What? Odin
: But those plans no longer matter. Loki
: So I am no more than another stolen relic, locked up here until you might have use of me? Odin
: Why do you twist my words? Loki
: You could have told me what I was from the beginning! Why didn't you? Odin
: You're my son... I wanted only to protect you from the truth... Loki
: What, because I... I... I am the monster parents tell their children about at night? Odin
] No! No! Loki
: You know, it all makes sense now, why you favored Thor all these years, because no matter how much you claim to love me, you could never have a Frost Giant sitting on the throne of Asgard!
[an overcome Odin collapses
: Guards! Guards, please help!
: [about Odin
] So why did he lie? Frigga
: He kept the truth from you so you would never feel different. You are our son, Loki, and we your family.
: We mustn't lose hope that your father will return to us, and your brother... Loki
: What hope is there for Thor? Frigga
: There's always a purpose to everything your father does.
: [deleted scene
] Thor is banished. The line of succession falls to you. Until Odin awakens, Asgard is yours. Loki
: [turns around and takes hold of the Gungnir spear
: Make your father proud. Loki
: [turns around to face Frigga, with Gungnir in his hands
] My King.
[bowing slightly and smiles lovingly at Loki
: Do the Frost Giants still live? Young Thor
: When I am king, I'll hunt the monsters down and slay them all! Just as you did, Father! Odin
: A wise king never seeks out war. But he must always be ready for it.
[walks off, his sons run after him
] Young Thor
: I'm with you, Father! Young Loki
: So am I! Odin
: Only one of you can ascend to the throne. But BOTH of you were born to be kings!
: I want to know what you've done to Agent Barton. Loki
: I would say I've expanded his mind. Natasha Romanoff
: And once you've won, once you're king of the mountain, what happens to his mind? Loki
: Oh. Is this love, Agent Romanoff? Natasha Romanoff
: Love is for children. I owe him a debt. Loki
: Tell me. Natasha Romanoff
: Before I worked for SHIELD, I, uh... Well, I made a name for myself. I have a very specific skill set. I didn't care who I used it for, or on. I got on SHIELD's radar in a bad way. Agent Barton was sent to kill me. He made a different call. Loki
: And what will you do if I vow to spare him? Natasha Romanoff
: Not let you out. Loki
] No, but I like this. Your world in the balance, and you bargain for one man. Natasha Romanoff
: Regimes fall every day. I tend not to weep over that, I'm Russian... or was. Loki
: And what are you now? Natasha Romanoff
: It's really not that complicated. I've got red in my ledger, I'd like to wipe it out. Loki
: Can you? Can you wipe out that much red? Dreykov's daughter, Sao Paulo, the hospital fire?
[Natasha's calm demeanor starts to break
: Barton told me everything. Your ledger is dripping, it's GUSHING red, and you think saving a man no more virtuous than yourself will change anything? This is the basest sentimentality. This is a child at prayer... PATHETIC! You lie and kill in the service of liars and killers. You pretend to be separate, to have your own code. Something that makes up for the horrors. But they are a part of you, and they will never go away!... I won't touch Barton. Not until I make him kill you!
[Natasha's eyes start to bulge as her face turns fearful
] Slowly, intimately, in every way he knows you fear! And then he'll wake just long enough to see his good work, and when he screams, I'll split his skull! This is MY bargain, you mewling quim!
[Natasha turns and takes several steps away
] Natasha Romanoff
: [starts to cry
] You're a monster! Loki
] Oh no, you brought the monster. Natasha Romanoff
: [quickly dropping her facade
] So, Banner... that's your play. Loki
: ...What? Natasha Romanoff
: [on the intercom
] Loki means to unleash the Hulk. Keep Banner in the lab, I'm on my way. Send Thor as well. Natasha Romanoff
: [turning back to Loki
] Thank you... for your cooperation.
: The Chitauri are coming. Nothing will change that. What have I to fear? Tony Stark
: The Avengers. That's what we call ourselves; we're sort of like a team. "Earth's Mightiest Heroes" type thing. Loki
: Yes, I've met them. Tony Stark
: Yeah, takes us a while to get any traction, I'll give you that one. But let's do a head count here: your brother the demi-god; a super soldier, a living legend who kind of lives up to the legend; a man with breath-taking anger management issues; a couple of master assassins, and YOU, big fella, you've managed to piss off every single one of them. Loki
: That was the plan. Tony Stark
: Not a great plan. When they come, and they WILL, they'll come for you. Loki
: I have an army. Tony Stark
: We have a Hulk. Loki
: I thought the beast had wandered off... Tony Stark
: You're missing the point! There's no throne, there is no version of this where you come out on top. Maybe your army comes and maybe it's too much for us but it's all on you. Because if we can't protect the Earth, you can be damned well sure we'll avenge it!
: [as Fury tries to leave with the Tesseract
] Please don't. I still need that. Nick Fury
: This doesn't have to get any messier. Loki
: Of course it does. I've come too far anything else. I am Loki, of Asgard and I am burdened with glorious purpose. Selvig
: Loki, brother of Thor. Nick Fury
: We have no quarrel with your people. Loki
: An ant has no quarrel with a boot. Nick Fury
: Are you planning to step on us? Loki
: I come with glad tidings of a world made free. Nick Fury
: Free from what? Loki
: Freedom. Freedom is life's great lie. Once you accept that, in your heart...
[walks up to Eric Selvig and touches him with the scepter
: ...you will know peace. Nick Fury
: Yeah, you say "peace," I kind of think you mean the other thing. Clint Barton
: Sir, Director Fury is stalling. This place is about to blow and drop a hundred feet of rock on us. He means to bury us. Nick Fury
: Like the pharaohs of old. Selvig
: He's right. The portal is collapsing in on itself. We've got maybe two minutes before this goes critical. Loki
: Well, then...
[Barton shoots Fury, they leave
: What's the matter, scared of a little lightning? Loki
: I'm not overly fond of what follows...
: You WILL kneel before me!
: How will your friends have time for me, when they're so busy fighting you?
[taps Stark with his scepter, but the Arc Reactor stops the effect
: [tries again, with no success
] This usually works... Tony Stark
: Well, performance issues, it's not uncommon. One out of five...
: [after Thor charges at Loki's duplicate and gets locked in a prison
] Are you ever NOT going to fall for that?
: Kneel before me. I said, KNEEL!
[Loki stamps his scepter on the ground, causing a shockwave that intimidates the crowd into silence as they all kneel before him
: Is not this simpler? Is this not your natural state? It's the unspoken truth of humanity, that you crave subjugation. The bright lure of freedom diminishes your life's joy in a mad scramble for power, for identity. You were made to be ruled. In the end, you will always kneel. German Old Man
: [slowly rises to his feet
] Not to men like you. Loki
] There are no men like me. German Old Man
: There are *always* men like you. Loki
: Look to your elder, people. Let him be an example.
[Loki aims a blast of power from his scepter at the old man when Captain America leaps in front of the intended target, deflecting the blast with his shield back at Loki, knocking him down
] Steve Rogers
: You know, the last time I was in Germany and saw a man standing above everybody else, we ended up disagreeing. Loki
: The soldier. A man out of time. Steve Rogers
: I'm not the one who's out of time.
Agent Phil Coulson
: You're gonna lose. Loki
: Am I? Agent Phil Coulson
: It's in your nature. Loki
: Your heroes are scattered, your floating fortress falls from the sky... where is my disadvantage? Agent Phil Coulson
: You lack conviction. Loki
: I don't think I...
[Coulson shoots Loki with his BFG, causing Loki to be blown through the wall behind him
] Agent Phil Coulson
: So that's what it does.
: Please tell me you're going to appeal to my humanity Tony Stark
: Uh, actually I'm planning to threaten you. Loki
: You should have left your armor on for that. Tony Stark
: Yeah. It's seen a bit of "mileage" and you got the "glow-stick of destiny". Would you like a drink? Loki
: Stalling me won't change anything Tony Stark
: No, no no, threatening! No drink? You sure? I'm having one.
[Loki awakens to find the Avengers staring down at him
: If it's all the same to you, I'll have that drink now.
: Enough! You are, all of you are beneath me! I am a god, you dull creature, and I will not be bullied by...
[Hulk flattens Loki with repeated smashes into the floor
] The Hulk
: Puny god.
: The Chitauri grow restless. Loki
: Let them gird themselves. I will lead them into glorious battle. The Other
: Battle? Against the meager might of Earth? Loki
: Glorious, not lengthy. If your force is as formidable as you claim. The Other
: You question us? You question HIM? He, who put the scepter in your hand, who gave you ancient knowledge and new purpose when you were cast out, defeated? Loki
: I was a king, the rightful king of Asgard! Betrayed! The Other
: Your ambition is little, born of childish need. We look beyond the Earth to greater worlds the Tesseract will unveil. Loki
: You don't have the Tesseract yet. I don't threaten, but until I open the doors, until your force is mine to command, you are but words. The Other
: You will have your war, Asgardian. If you fail, if the Tesseract is kept from us, there will be no realm, no barren moon, no crevice where he can not find you. You think you know pain? He will make you long for something as sweet as pain.
: Loki, turn off the Tesseract or I will destroy it! Loki
: You can't! There's no stopping it. There is only the war! Thor
: So be it!
: The Tesseract is showing me so much. It's more than just knowledge, it's... truth. Loki
: I know. What did it show you, Agent Barton? Clint Barton
: My next target. Loki
: Tell me what you need. Clint Barton
: I'll need a distraction.
[Barton grabs his bow
] Clint Barton
: And an eyeball.
: Where is the Tesseract? Loki
] I missed you too. Thor
: Do I look to be in a gaming mood? Loki
: Oh, you should thank me. With the Bifrost gone, how much dark energy did the Allfather have to muster to conjure you here, your precious Earth? Thor
: I thought you dead. Loki
: Did you mourn? Thor
: We all did. Our father... Loki
: YOUR father! He DID tell you my true parentage, did he not? Thor
: We were raised together, we played together, we fought together. Do you remember none of that? Loki
: I remember a shadow, living in the shade of your greatness. I remember you tossing me into an abyss, I who was and should be king! Thor
: So you take the world I love as recompense for your imagined slights? No, the Earth is under MY protection, Loki! Loki
] And you're doing a marvelous job with that! The humans slaughter each other in droves, while you ideally threat. I mean to rule them. And why should I not? Thor
: You think yourself above them? Loki
: Well, yes. Thor
: Then you miss the truth of ruling, brother. A throne would suit you ill. Loki
: I've seen worlds you've never known about! I have grown, Odin's Son, in my exile! I have seen the true power of the Tesseract, and when I wield it... Thor
: Who showed you this power? Who controls the would-be-king? Loki
: I AM a king! Thor
: Not here! You give up the Tesseract! You give up this pointless dream!... You come home.
: ...I don't have it.
[Thor threatens Loki with his hammer
: You need the cube to bring me home, but I've sent it off, I know not where. Thor
: You listen well, brother. I...
[Thor is knocked off the mountain by Iron Man who tackles him in mid-flight
: I'm listening.
[Fury is visiting an imprisoned Loki
] Nick Fury
: In case it's unclear, if you try to escape, you so much as scratch that glass...
[Fury hits a button on the machine and opens metal iris panels around the chamber
] Nick Fury
: ...it's 30,000 feet straight down in a steel trap. You get how that works? Ant... boot. Loki
: It's an impressive cage. Not built, I think, for me. Nick Fury
: Built for something a lot stronger than you. Loki
: Oh, I've heard. The mindless beast, makes play he's still a man. How desperate are you, that you call on such lost creatures to defend you? Nick Fury
: How desperate am I? You threaten my world with war. You steal a force you can't hope to control. You talk about peace and you kill 'cause it's fun. You have made me VERY desperate. You might not be glad that you did. Loki
: Ooh. It burns you to have come so close. To have the Tesseract, to have power, unlimited power. And for what? A warm light for all mankind to share. And then to be reminded what real power is. Nick Fury
: [walks away
] Well, let me know if "real power" wants a magazine or something.
: Kneel! Steve Rogers
: Not today!
: Curse you, Loki, for convincing me to bring this creature to my realm! Thor
: Stay your hand, Hela! We shall retrieve the Hulk! Loki
: WE? The Hulk's fists have addled your mind, Thunderer! Thor
: Fight with me, brother, or die alone! Loki
: Not much of a threat, considering we're already in Hel...
: Enough of this ridiculousness! To think that Loki, Prince of Darkness, should waste his time with defending Asgard!
[Loki raises his arms to enact a spell, but Thor stops him
: Nay, brother! We leave together, for you still have much to answer for! Hela
: Indeed. You both do. For today Hela has relinquished a soul, and she demands one in exchange! Thor
: You may try to take my soul, death goddess, but I will make you fight for it. And your realm has suffered much already this day. Hela
: You speak the truth. So I shall take HIS soul instead! Loki
[souls break out of the ground and grab Loki's ankles
: Thor! I helped you! Thor!
[Loki is dragged into a crevasse
: I could fight you for Loki's soul. Hela
: Will you?
: No. Hela
: He is my father; his stay will not be eternal. But know this, Odinson: your soul will be mine, and I will keep it for ever! Your fate is inescapable! Thor
: We shall see!
: [trying to pick up Mjölnir, through the Hulk
] I... will... have... this... hammer! Thor
: [mystically summons the hammer back to him
] Nay. You shall have its thunder!
[first lines in "Hulk vs. Thor"
: Outside of the world you know, there exists the realm eternal, Asgard. The shining light of the Nine Worlds, Asgard is home to the gods... all of whom bow down before the AllFather, Odin. Odin's lifeblood flows through Asgard, and Asgard is Odin. His power is all, and he keeps the Asgardian realm safe. But once each winter, the AllFather must rest and enter the Odinsleep. While Odin slumbers, his absence leaves Asgard vulnerable and this is when the wicked descend upon his kingdom. For seven days, an onslaught of trolls, giants, dark elves and demons seek to take control of the Nine Worlds. But they are eternally defeated by HIM... my arrogant, oafish brute of a step-brother... THOR!
: [as he takes command of the Hulk
] And so begins the end of Thor.
: You don't know what you've done! With no one to rein the Hulk in, he'll tear down your entire world! Loki
: I find your prattling useless, mortal... just as you are now useless to ME!
: [battling the Hulk
] Why have you come here? Loki
: [speaking through the Hulk
] Why, to kill you, of course, dear stepbrother! Thor
[Loki throws Thor through a wall
: [throwing punches
] I have waited an eternity for this: to crush you with my bare hand, to match your might, to feel your life fade away at my hands...
: Come to your new master, Mjolnir, and let us smite my stepbrother, for there are none stronger than Loki now...
: [to Hela
] The Hulk's soul is rightfully yours, daughter. Take it! Bring the Hulk to Hel! Merge the two halves of his soul, and claim him!
: The creature's power is INCREDIBLE!
: [watching the Hulk
] What is that monster doing? It marches towards Odin.
[Thor breaks into Loki's hideaway
: Loki! I would have words with you! Loki
: No! You were at Hela's door! I defeated you!
: The Hulk shall be sent back to Midgard, and then you shall answer to Odin! Loki
: Fine! Take the creature! It provided me with amusement enough, seeing him pummel you nigh-unto death!
[Amora discovers Bruce Banner has been slain by Loki
: You... you fool, you've killed him! Do you know what you've done? Because the mortal died here, Hela claimed his soul! Without his soul, I cannot return him to Midgard! Without Bruce Banner... the Hulk cannot leave Asgard!
: [choking Loki
] I saw the beast's eyes, brother. It will not stop until all of Asgard is destroyed, until Odin has been broken! You have brought about a new Ragnarok down upon us all! Loki
: It's possible I made a poor choice...
[Thor and Loki arrive in the Nordic Underworld
: Long have I wished never to visit this realm... Loki
: I always forget how busy a time the Odinsleep is for my daughter. Dost thou see any newly arrived friends here, brother? Thor
: Have a care, Loki, lest ye stay here!
[Thor and Loki meet Hela, queen of the Norse underworld
: Hail Hela, goddess of the dead. Hela
: The sons of Odin risk much entering my realm... Thor
: The Nine Worlds of Asgard are in great peril, including Hel and Middle-Earth. A new Ragnarok is upon us. We need your help. We need Bruce Banner.
[Hela dismisses her guards
: The mortal's soul is MINE, Asgardian. As yours nearly was this very day, and may well be again... Thor
: You would risk everything for the sake of one soul? Hela
: As YOU yourself would do, Odin's son. Loki
: Ah, but you do not have a soul, daughter. You have HALF a soul, you have Bruce Banner. You need the Hulk to complete your prize...
[Loki joins Thor in battle a little late, just as Thor is about to be broken
: My apologies... I was enjoying the performance.
: Hear me, human. You have been brought to Asgard, for in all the universe, only *you* have ever brought near defeat to the Mighty Thor. Bruce Banner
: What? I couldn't. Loki
: Not thee, Bruce Banner, for you are a sad, sniveling creature. I speak of your other half. I speak... of the Hulk.
: There is one day left of the Odinsleep. As always, the Asgardians will emerge victorious against the siege of darkness. My brother will seek peace and then... then I shall destroy him!
: Although the City seems to be humming along as usual, the mighty Thor is troubled... Thor
: I sense an aura of evil over the City. I feel it lurking, ready to pounce! I cannot pinpoint its presence... but whenever it strikes, Thor shall be ready!
: Far below, in a shadowy alley... Loki
: [watching the sky
] You would not be so confident, thunder god, if you knew your archenemy Loki was on earth once more!
: Thor! You dare force your way back to Asgard, against my imperial command? Do you compel me to do battle, with my own son? Thor
: A thousand pardons, noble father! I did what a warrior must do! An innocent life depended on my finding Loki! I could not shed that risk! Loki
: Words! Naught but hollow words! Odin
: Forbore! I have heard enough... Odin
: [to Thor
] Back to Earth with you! I shall suspend my judgment until you return! Begone!
: If I were foolhardy enough to fight you, you would defeat me. But you cannot strike at one who stands quietly before you. your stupid honour would not permit it! Thor
: Take heed, evil one, I have my breaking point!
: My first concern is to free the girl! But then, hated one, I shall return and repay you! Loki
: My shrewdness and cunning will ever be more than a match for your brute strength!
: Meanwhile, in Asgard, the lordly Odin watches the scene with compassion, and finally reaches a momentous decision... Odin
: Although Thor may not take the forbidden female for his bride, I shall save her from certain death!
[writes on a scroll
: Loki, by my imperial command, you are to take this message to Ardo the Healer. He will find a remedy for the one called Jane.
[gives the message to Loki, and walks off
: I shall obey at once, noble one... the word of Odin is indeed the law, but laws can be broken! The girl must die!
: Meanwhile, in Asgard, Balder the brave intercepts Loki... Balder
: I'll deliver that message, crafty one! Loki
: Can it be? My own peers turning against me? Balder
: Nay, Loki, we are not thy peers. For none can match thee in villainy and deceit! Narrator
: And so Balder rides furiously across the wild and savage chasm... Balder
: I dare not fail! For it means the life of she who my dearest friend holds ever in his heart!
: [about Odin
] When I think of all the millennia I've wasted on that... gigolo! Loki
: Oh, he does tend to giggle.
: I say thee nay! Loki
: You're always saying thee nay, naysayer! Thor
: I'm rubber and thou art paste. Whatever thou sayeth, bounces off of me and sticketh to thou with haste, so sayeth Thor. Loki
: Oh, your teeth are brighter than you are. Thor
: Ooh, you take that back you horn-helmeted toad! Loki
: Make me.
: Ooh, oh. I just can't win. Loki
: Eh, welcome to my world. Enchantress
: Oh well, I've got three episodes of Scandinavian Idol recorded. Later.
[disappears in a cloud of magic
: What are you doing in my seat, BFF? Loki
: Oh, just keeping it warm for you. M.O.D.O.K.
: Really? Well, it's *my* throne and I don't want your skinny Asgardian butt warming it.
: Don't worry about them. They're powerless. I'll help you destroy the others. M.O.D.O.K.
: I don't need your help, imp. Loki
: You know, my cousin called me an imp once, and to this day he doesn't walk right. M.O.D.O.K.
: Oh, yeah?
: Finally, my vengeance will be realized on your pathetic planet! I will harness the power of Galactus! He will have the earth for breakfast and Asgard for lunch! Spider-Man
: Wow, he's gonna be pretty full. That's quite a lot of protein, even for a big guy.
: Can't we talk about this? Galactus
: No! I bet you taste minty and cool. I need a palate cleanser!
: Got your nose. Abomination
: But how will I smell?
: Thor is a baby, Thor is a baby.
: You con't even have a real weapon. What are you gonna do, build me a tree house with your hammer? Ooh, scary! Thor
: Dost thou make mockery of me? Well, dost? Loki
: Bro, seriously, when art thou gonna to stop talking like that? Ceriously, we're in the 21st century. Thor
: I warn thee, base sibling, take it back!
: Hello, Ymir. Ymir
: You require an answer, Loki. And my answer is yes! I will help you to defeat Asgard!
