One of Marvel’s premiere series thus far is none other than Loki, a project that expounded on the story of what has been perhaps the MCU’s most iconic villain; that developed into a series that was among the MCU’s best.
Not only did Loki brilliantly explore one of the universe’s most interesting and conflicted characters, but it also developed into what is perhaps the most consequential of all Marvel Disney+ outings.

With the near destruction of the TVA in the series first season, and the death of the organization’s orchestrator, He Who Remains, there will likely be more Renslayer in season two, except with a varied allegiance to the forthcoming Kang the Conqueror; the main villain teased in the season one finale.
We can’t wait for Loki season two, and Renslayers return, in what should be a fantastic continuation of the character’s story.
