I love how kid!Loki is trying to be a force for good in this lifetime, but basically lies, cheats and tricks his way through achieving these goals, which often have negative side-consequences. Making enemies of former allies, and, well, enemies of former enemies. I think Volstagg is coming around, though.
What do you do when you have, on the face of it, a clean slate to begin afresh, but a dark past that won't go away? Is it tempting sometimes?
