Loki | What is Alioth and how can it affect the future of the MCU?

Published

If you haven’t watched Loki fifth episode, then don’t read this article to avoid spoilers.

Loki’s penultimate episode ended the series, although it didn’t show much in terms of storytelling and script development. And much of it revolves around the threat at the time, the dreaded Alioth. Based on the comics, the character is portrayed in the series as a living cloud that takes the form of a dog, whose food is based on the matter and energy of time travelers who are cast into the Void. Virtually invincible, it serves as a sort of watchdog that prevents the variants pruned by VAT from returning to their chronologies. This makes him a real bogeyman of the variants, who spend the rest of their lives running away from him. However, as we saw at the end of the episode, Loki (Tom Hiddleston) and Sylvie (Sophia Di Martino), with the help of Papy Loki (Richard E. Grant), manage to bewitch him and enter his mind, opening a portal to the unknown.

Created in 1993, the comic book version is a little-known entity for having immeasurable power. He is a timeless cosmic entity. Not only that, but he’s also considered the first character to cross the barriers of time, becoming immune to them. Simply put, Alioth the Usurper can live on different time frames and wreak havoc on all of them. With this level of power, the few times he appeared were in Avengers stories involving villainous Kang, The Conqueror. And as was to be expected, such a dreaded entity would not be content to live without demonstrating its influence and its capabilities to the weakest. Thus, the purple cloud forms a colossal empire that not only rivals that of Kang, but is estimated to be three times the size of the Conqueror.

Enjoy watching:

And not surprisingly, these two overpowered despots are mortal enemies. In fact, it is Alioth’s presence that stops Kang’s desire for new lands. After all, Kang is the most famous time traveler in the Marvel Universe. And since Alioth’s powers include feeding on matter and temporal energy, Kang is literally a plate for his rival. The fear of being destroyed by the enemy is so great that the Conqueror creates special barriers to protect his kingdom, Chronopolis.

Alioth’s presence in the final episode, as well as the Easter Egg of the Qeng Business Tower, whose comic book owner is Kang himself, seems to indicate that the big name behind the TVA is Kang, the conqueror. Villain who has already been chosen to appear in Ant Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. They are enemies, after all, and the Purple Cloud usually doesn’t appear in storylines that don’t involve the Conqueror. Moreover, the very presence of Ravonna Renslayer (Gugu Mbatha-Raw), who is Kang’s wife in the comics, is already a good indication of the villain’s presence in this story. Only that’s it. In the MCU, everything that looks like a duck, nothing like a duck, and quacks like a duck are actually a duck. How not to remember the fake Mandarin (Ben Kingsley) in Iron Man 3 or the Mephisto in WandaVision? So, as much as anything indicates that the big villain of Loki’s plot is Kang, Marvel may surprise you. If he’s himself, that points to a completely unstable future for the MCU, as the biggest threat will be a villain who can travel and change timelines at will.

The last episode of Loki will be broadcast this Wednesday (14) on Disney +.
