After six intense rounds of voting, we can officially crown Loki as the Ultimate Marvel Villain! The Trickster God who attempted to take over Earth, faked his own death to return to Asgard and rule under false pretenses, and came this close to betraying Thor on Sakaar has won the hearts of fans everywhere with that wink-and-a-smile charisma and not one but two separate redemptive arcs.
Were we surprised? A little, yes. Thanos is, after all, the Big Bad of the Infinity Saga, and considering what happened between him an Loki in Avengers: Infinity War, well… Let’s just say we leave it up to each individual voter to determine how to make their picks in these showdowns, but if it were a true contest of power, we all saw how the championship round here actually went down. At the very least, the final tally was a close one, with Loki taking the victory by a margin of just 52% to 48% of the vote.
Thanks once again to everyone who participated in this showdown, whether you took it very seriously or had a bit of fun with it. We welcome fans of all stripes here, and that’s what makes these fun in the first place. With that, we’ll see you all at the next big showdown!
