CBR Review: Loki #2

I recently reviewed Loki #2 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "How many times have we seen Loki kill Balder, either directly or through someone else? There’s an interesting tie-in to the mythological roots of Thor and the Aesir when Marvel tells and retells the same stories from different perspectives, in different ways, but it’s also tedious. Loki brings about Ragnarök by killing Balder. That’s the way it happens and, in the past few years, it seems to have happened a lot. In fact, at least two current mini-series for Marvel have plots rooted in that act, including, unsurprisingly, Loki, where, in the second issue, he kills Balder. Why? Because he’s Loki and that’s what Loki does."
