Loki will be portrayed as pansexual and genderfluid in an upcoming YA Marvel novel.

Marvel is releasing a series of three novels focusing on anti-heroes in 2019. One novel will focus on Loki, Thor’s adopted brother and nemesis.

Author Mackenzi Lee took to Twitter to answer questions about the project and informed fans that Loki is “canonically pansexual and genderfluid character.”

When a fan questioned if this was just to make the LGBT community feel represented, Lee replied that in the comics Loki is known to take on female forms.

“First, it’s about time the LGBT+ community was represented in superhero narratives.
Second, in the comics, Loki is reborn as a woman & uses female pronouns & often takes on female forms like the Scarlet Witch and Lady Sif. Odin calls him my child who is both.’ So,” Lee responds.

Another fan confirmed that Loki’s mythology includes gender fluidity.
