We’ve found a familiar friend — or foe, depends — in the Big Apple. 

Loki, God of Mischief (and king of my heart), is sweeping into New York Comic Con (NYCC) in the form of a Madame Tussauds wax figure. The Loki figure is inspired by his character in the Battle of New York sequence — you know the one — from Marvel Studio’s The Avengers (2012). He’ll feel right as home as he makes his world debut in front of Grand Central Terminal, which you’ll recognize from the aforementioned battle scene (and its historical legacy outside the MCU). The figure, which features his classic headpiece, a glowing scepter, and a green and gold cloak, is so detailed and lifelike that passersby might think they’re actually passing Tom Hiddleston in Midtown.

Loki’s home sweet home will be the Hall of Heroes in Madame Tussauds New York in Times Square. Although Loki is used to going it alone, he’ll have some company as he joins other Marvel heroes including Black Panther, Spider-Man, and Thor, and the legendary Stan Lee.
