3. Loki, "Thor: The Dark World"
You’d think a movie titled “Thor” would be about the god of thunder. But take a look at the structure: who gets the first and the last scene? Who has the biggest emotional journey? And no slam to actor Chris Hemsworth, but who is more exciting to watch, gets the best lines, and makes the biggest sacrifices? The answer to all of those questions is a resounding, “Loki.” Chances are if the trickster showed up in the real world asking us all to kneel, we wouldn’t hesitate to take a knee. Hey, we were meant to be ruled, right? And Loki definitely rules. - AZ
