sometimes I post comic panels

Older Loki: To what end…?

Younger Loki: You said why is the force that turns the gears of the universe. So why do you do this?

Older Loki: To become the ultimate power in all creation. To live forever. To see those I hate ground down before me. I wish to stand at the highest point. I wish–

–I wish to rule all things… and the means to that power can never be found in the dirt beneath the huts of our people.

(Thor v3, #12)
