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.

I think you are spot on with Loki. It's always how I envisioned him. I never understood why a shape shifter would allow himself to be ugly if it wasn't necessary. And Loki in AOV was my favorite instances of Loki. Especially his dealings with the Red Skull, he really embarrassed Skull in Captain America. I also really liked him in the X-men annual and the Alpha Flight/X-men crossover. Claremont seemed to have a strong affinity for Loki. I'd actually be interested to see him take a run on Thor should the title become available after JMS finishes his run.

As for Odin, I somewhat agree. I have a feeling that JMS may not want to bring him back. I mainly say this because one of JMS's themes is that Thor is Asgard and Asgard is Thor. I don't see how that can be true if Odin is around. I'm sure someone else will bring him back eventually, but I don't see it happening anytime soon. When he does return, I don't necessarily want him to be G's peer, and too involved with cosmic stuff. I do prefer him powerful though. I'd like to see him very enigmatic, rarely seen. Only discussed and having his presence felt. The few times he is seen, they should be brief momentus occasions. I want to bring back more awe with the gods, especially the higher end ones. When Odin appears, everyone around, including most other gods, should be in total shock and awe. And for his enemies, fear and dread. I'd like the same for characters like Zeus or Surtur. Have those beings be totally out of everyone else's league, even Thor's.
