It’s hilarious because, yeah, egotistical and a monument to his own face, but it struck me as how that’s 100% an Asgardian thing to do. Everything I have ever learned about Asgardian architecture and design, from studying all the different sources as best I can, is two things:
They love giant ugly statues and E V E R Y T H I N G is made out of gold.
The only thing Loki is missing here is a water feature and I would not be surprised if he put a goddamned fountain in the middle of that big ugly statue of himself. SERIOUSLY, I LOVE IT, IT’S SUCH AN ASGARDIAN THING TO DO, YOU CAN TAKE THE LITTLE SHIT OUT OF ASGARD, BUT YOU CAN’T TAKE THE ASGARD OUT OF THE LITTLE SHIT.
This is the greatest thing I will see all day, Peter trying to fly Loki’s body over to the real Loki, crashing onto the pavement, muttering, well, shit, he thought Loki could fly????, and then having to find a different way there.
