I'm pretty sure both Loki and Odin will come back, how they come back who knows but anyway I would love to see both Loki and Odin come back but much more evolved.

Loki - Should be like he was in the Acts of Vengence storyline and the X-Men annual. He should be less cartoony evil and much more of a schemer, subtle, and intelligent. He should also be incredibly charming like he was to Storm, since it's so much easier to believe someone's lies when there charming and personable. There should always be doubt if Loki was involved in whatever scheme since he plays with peoples/Gods minds with ease. But finaly they should STOP drawing Loki as a hook nosed old geezer, he's NOT the God of ugly and like todays society it's so much easier to believe peoples lies when their good looking. Loki should have dark good looks in contrast to Thor's blonde buff look. Besides, even the ugliest God should make Brad Pitt look like dog meat.

Odin - First get rid of the beer belly and whiskey nose. He should be regal and imposing and have an air of power even when entering a room. He should be mellow in age and much tempered, in past issues he was just as rambuctius and arrogant as Thor himself and could be quite petty. Perhaps Odin should be much more in the background and more concerned with Cosmic/universal affairs than just asgards well being. Plus he should be much more involved in cosmic decisions involving the other cosmic entities, he should be shown as a peer to Galactus and be at those Abstract "shindigs" that Galactus and even the Stranger is at most of the times. Plus I would love to see him as more of a Ambassador to the other Pantheons and have regular meetings with the other Sky Fathers on cosmic affairs.

Good post. Loki’s character has drifted all over the place. Under Jack and Stan he was an evil weasel and later became more of a thorn under Buscema’s run. Subsequently it all went a bit rubbish, until Walt and to an extent DeFalco gave some sense of stability to the character, albeit quite differently. The AoV crossover was good and demonstrated how Loki would easily manipulate various top shelf villains as it should be. In terms of evil and scheming, Loki’s peers are Mephisto, Thanos, Hela, Pluto, Karnilla and even Dormammu - anything less is a plaything.

Odin under Stan, Jack and John was perfect though a bit of a raver. I’d like to see him with the Council of Gods and the cosmic big guns as you say – remember when he appeared at The Trial of Galactus and his testimony carried such weight based solely on who he was? That’s the way it should be.
