Yes. It is. The first movie was supposed to be about you learning that lesson. Remember that, Thor?
No, of course you don’t. Nobody else does, why should you?
Except that at the end he solves his problems by liberal application of his magic hammer. And the real lesson is that that’s better than trying to think your way through problems. Because only bad Loki does that.
Why do I bother?
…no, the lesson was “a good ruler attacks in defense rather than for fun”, and Loki’s idea of “thinking through things” is “attack it in waves and let other people take the brunt of it/force everyone into submission/don’t understand the meaning of ‘quit’/when in doubt try to make it cry since you’re susceptible enough to it that you think it works on everyone”.
this is literally the worst fandom ever lol omg
loki thinks things through, decides carefully that the best course of action is genocide
thor acts on impulse, thinking in moments alternatively he must sacrifice himself or sacrifice his only (as far as he knows) means of ever seeing the woman he loves again to protect people he DOESN’T EVEN KNOW from dying
and you little fuckers decide that thor is a bad person who hits things all the time with his hammer and poor baby loki is just unfairly maligned for how smart he is?
you stupid little shits REALIZE that the joke here is that Loki has tried to solve his problems TWICE now by alternatively
- attempting to invade and take over another planet via warfare
so him telling Thor that “hitting” things is him being a hypocritical little shit, he might not have personally been the one doing the violence (no, he used the bifrost and the chitauri army to do the hitting) but he has used violence to solve every problem he has had in the MCU, whereas Thor has solved his problems via self-sacrifice, learning to put other people’s feelings and lives before his own.
Why do you bother? Because you’re sure as hell not actually contributing.
