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'm sort of partial to Gaiman's version of Odin, from Seasons of the Mists. Odin was still portrayed as a significant being yet he was also limited alah myths. I liked the whole schemer aspect of him as well as his relative cool. It is sort of reminiscent of Odin from Simonson's run (alah Beta Ray Bill storyline to the Fafnir storyline), except he would be less imposing IMO b/c Ragnorok is over. I wouldn't mind him being more of a retired adviser type.

I loved Millar's version of Loki (except for the final issue). Schemer, troublemaker, anarchist... that would be cool.
