Was Loki the son of Odin?

In the Poetic Edda and Prose Edda, two of the very few sources of information regarding the figure, Loki is described as a son of the giants Frbauti and Laufey. Loki also had two brothers (Helbindi & Byleist) of whom nothing is known. The same source also describes Loki as the "contriver of all fraud" and features Loki mixing freely with the gods for a long time, even becoming Odin's blood brother before murdering Baldr.

No, the WGA deemed this based on the original screenplay "Baby Formula" with no main characters and no story lines continuing from The Mask. In a new story involving the mask, only Ben Stein (Dr. Neuman) returns for a cameo in the picture.

Well good sir... In a Nintendo Power magazine a few years back, after the first mask movie was made, it was rumoured that there was a sequel coming up, and you could have a chance to star in this movie thanks to a competition in a nintendo power magazine. Unfortunately this was about 7 years ago... the movie was never made. All those kids wanting to be cameos.. Nope.. the movie was never made.. Instead now this is a sequel.. great.

This movie is less about the Norse Mythology. It does feature the Norse Gods Odin, Loki, and mentions Baldr and Thor, but the only thing they stuck true to was Loki's shapeshifting. No mention of Baldr killed by Loki, which was also in the Norse Myths.

No. Originally "The Mask" was created by writer John Arcudi and artist Doug Mahnke in the early 1990s in the form of a series of comic books. The first movie ("The Mask"), was a loose adaptation of these comics, and was originally going to be the replacement of the "A Nightmare on Elm Street" series, but Chuck Russell (Director of "A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors" and "The Mask") decided that the movie would work better as a comedy instead.

"Son of the Mask" itself was adapted from an original screenplay by Lance Khazei titled "Baby Formula." "Baby Formula" was never intended to be a sequel to the Mask nor was it originally intended to be a kid's movie. "Baby Formula" has been described as having been inspired by "Rosemary's Baby" and "Who Framed Roger Rabbit" and originally intended for a more adult audience.
