Thor's brother Loki to come out as bisexual

Loki, who steals the movie in the latest movie, “Thor: The Dark World,” comes out as bisexual in the comic book (but not the movie—yet).

Tom Hiddleston portrays the Avengers villain Loki, (see the video) and he is truly evil (despite a few nice turns in the film).

However, in the comic book world, “Thor” writer Al Ewing gave a preview to the upcoming “Loki: Agent of Asgard” comic book that is scheduled to be released in early next year.

The character will be very gender-fluid, according to Ewing on a question-and-answer session online with fans.

“Yes, Loki is bi and I’ll be touching on that,” Ewing said. “He’ll shift between genders occasionally as well.”

He is a shapeshifter, of course, and so the gender switch is a given for anyone who is rather curious. The bisexual bent is a new step for Marvel, and fans seem to love the idea. In the past, Loki has been portrayed or thought-of as specifically gay.

On Tumblr, one user nicknamed Homoviking wrote in response to the news, “Aahh what a beautiful day, the sun is shining, the sky is blue, loki is canonically bisexual.”

It’s another perhaps negative portrayal for bisexual activists, but at least it’s acknowledgement of bisexuality.
