Odin just admitted to Thor that he’s his favorite child, and while the comments occur in a somewhat playful moment, it further justifies Loki’s turn to villainy and defiance of his powerful father. In both the comics and the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Loki becomes a villain after learning about his true heritage as a frost giant. The God of Mischief has always felt Odin favored Thor as a son, and now the former All-Father just said the quiet part out loud.

Loki is the adopted son of Odin, who saved him as a baby following a battle with frost giants. Odin promised both Loki and Thor they had the potential to succeed him as the King of Asgard, but following the revelation about his connection to the frost giants, the trickster god rebelled against his home. Loki (correctly) believed Odin would never allow a frost giant to sit on the throne of Asgard and suggested he always favored Thor over him. Now, Odin just revealed Thor is his favorite son, proving Loki wasn’t exactly wrong about his chances to become King and defying his dad.

In a brand new preview for Thor #17 by Donny Cates, Michele Bandini, Elisabetta D’Amico, and Matthew Wilson, Thor and Odin meet up with Frigga – who’s become a badass warrior alongside her daughter, Angela. However, before they can have a full family reunion, Angela informs Thor and Odin they’re being attacked by the Koragants from Muspelheim, who are drawn to the smell of blood. After Angela tells Odin and Thor to join the fight, the former All-Father quips that the God of Thunder is his favorite child. Thor responds by telling him it’s not exactly a high bar to clear.

 

 

 

While Odin questions whether they can survive the waves of monsters, Frigga reveals herself to be the God of the Hunt and returns on a massive beast armed with arrows and a turret.

While Thor doesn’t take Odin’s remarks about being his favorite child overly seriously, there’s little doubt Loki would have been honored to hear the moment – as he’s never been told the same. Ultimately, Odin’s favoritism for Thor over Loki (even when it’s not spelled out so obviously) was a major turning point in the God of Mischief becoming a villain and turning against Asgard. Odin’s poor parenting really screwed up his adopted son to the point where he’d become one of his greatest adversaries. Calling Thor his favorite son so openly is an excellent reminder of why Loki became who he is. Thor #17 is in comic book stores this week.
