Loki's Season 2 Finale Credits Featured A Villain Hiding Next To Iron Man (Again)

Contains spoilers for "Loki" Season 2, Episode 6 — "Glorious Purpose"

Marvel fans are in for a time-bending extravaganza with the Season 2 finale of "Loki." And much of the plot is foreshadowed from the very beginning of the episode when the opening logo sequence for Marvel Studios runs in reverse. It's a neat trick, but it isn't the only thing out of the ordinary that fans may have caught on to.

One "Loki" fan caught something amiss with Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) in the opening of the previous episode, "Science/Fiction": Miss Minutes (Tara Strong) appears in the Marvel logo right after he performs his famous snap from "Avengers: Endgame." It could've been a one-off thing, except she materializes in the same spot for "Glorious Purpose" — only since the logo plays in reverse, she shows up first.

Could this merely be a permanent fixture of the Marvel opening credits? It seems unlikely, especially since she's in the space of Iron Man's snap. That's a pivotal moment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and her being there feels significant in some way. But what could it mean?

Could Miss Minutes' presence indicate more of her vindictiveness to come?

Miss Minutes appearing in the Marvel logo may simply be an Easter egg, but it could mean much more. After all, "Loki" Season 2, Episode 6 ends with Ouroboros (Ke Huy Quan) rebuilding Miss Minutes after resetting the TVA's system in Episode 4. She seems friendly, but there's even a joke where they're still worried she could try to kill them all. She is an all-powerful artificial intelligence, so she could easily fall back on her old ways and try to eliminate her adversaries, all to appease her love: He Who Remains and his numerous variants (Jonathan Majors).

Miss Minutes may even become a more integral component of the larger MCU. All of this is building toward "Avengers: The Kang Dynasty," which will presumably feature a ton of Kang variants. If Kang is there, Miss Minutes may not be far behind, and she could conceivably be part of that plot. If she's there with TVA technology, she could even go back to important moments in the MCU, such as Iron Man snapping during "Endgame," and change them to help with Kang's goals.

But this is all purely speculation. The most reasonable explanation for Miss Minutes being in the Marvel logo for two episodes is that it's a fun blink-and-you'll-miss-it moment. Then again, who knows? Marvel is known for laying the groundwork for future storylines far in advance, and this could be one of them.
