A new documentary delving into the makings of Loki reveals the nicknames of 3 mysterious God of Mischief variants that appeared in the Void.
A trio of unidentified Loki variants have finally been given names. The recently concluded Loki series on Disney+ brought a great many gifts to the MCU, from Owen Wilson’s Mobius to the bright yellow Thanos-Copter. Perhaps the greatest gift of all, however, is the sheer abundance of different Lokis on show. Featured most prominently is Sophia Di Martino’s Sylvie – a female Loki variant who was captured by the Time Variance Authority as a child, but made her escape and lived a life on the run. As great as Sylvie may be, she’s far from the only new Loki in town.
Di Martino and Tom Hiddleston take a trip to the Void in Loki episode 5. Located at the very edge of time, the Void is a dumping ground for the TVA, littered with everything the organization disposes of, from plastic lunch trays to amphibian Thors. Since Loki is one of the TVA’s most valued customers, the Void is also brimming with different variants, including Classic Loki (Richard E. Grant), Kid Loki (Jack Veal), Boastful Loki (DeObia Oparei), President Loki (Hiddleston again) and Alligator Loki (unknown newcomer). However, the presidential variant comes with his own band of followers, all incarnations of the God of Mischief in their own right. Unlike the others, these went identified, leaving fans to conjure up their own names.
In Assembled: The Making of Loki, now streaming on Disney+, 3 of the unidentified variants supporting President Loki’s campaign are given (semi-)official nicknames. According to costume designer Christine Wada, all of the variants had special behind-the-scenes titles. Wada reveals Glamshades Wolfie Loki, who is first glimpsed as a hologram when the TVA flick through their catalog of apprehended variants. He’s wearing a green onesie-type outfit with beads and sporting an impressive ensemble of facial hair. Designated L8941, the combination of face fluff and extravagant shades would explain the “Glamshades Wolfie” moniker. When President Loki and his gang are staring through the manhole, he’s the second from right.
Wada also identifies Pokey Loki A.K.A. In-Prison Loki. This fluorescent fellow stands out thanks to his red hair and rainbow-colored visor, but his nickname derives from the outfit, which comprises of a prison jumpsuit underneath a cape and a ball-and-chain weapon. Perhaps whatever this Loki did to land himself behind bars was the Nexus event that earned him a pruning from the TVA. Finally, there’s Bicycle Loki, easily spotted due to his long horns, which resemble the handlebars of a bicycle. He’s also the variant who appears to be dressed in a pilot’s jumpsuit and helmet, and (appropriately enough) is carrying a two-wheeled mace as a weapon.
In time, Marvel may reveal the backstage names of the other 6 mystery Loki variants. Fans were certainly fond of these colorful characters, and knowing their official variant titles will only increase that popularity. Alternatively, the Void’s gaggle of variants may even return in Loki season 2. The death of He Who Remains doesn’t necessarily mean the Void will cease to exist, so the wild Loki iterations might still be fighting in the underground bowling alley. On the other hand, the splitting of the Sacred Timeline means every Loki from the Void could potentially reincarnate in their natural timelines.
Loki season 2 is confirmed for Disney+.
