The Major Loki Variant MCU Fans Think We'll See In Season 2

The following article contains spoilers for "Loki" Season 1 and "Spider-Man: No Way Home."

"Loki" did a lot of heavy lifting when it came to introducing the multiverse within the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It was the first show to bring audiences the Time Variance Authority, who work on behalf of a mysterious figure to ensure the Sacred Timeline remains intact. You see, various deviations can occur, and it's up to the TVA to trim those delinquent branches to keep the time stream flowing smoothly.

By the end of the season, Loki (Tom Hiddleston) and Sylvie (Sophia Di Martino) dispatch He Who Remains (Jonathan Majors) but not before he gave them a dire warning of what would happen if he weren't there to keep time in place. He has a legion of variants who will go to war with one another yet again to establish ultimate supremacy over time.

We've already seen the cracks in the multiverse occur with "Spider-Man: No Way Home" and how villains from different "Spider-Man" franchises were brought into the MCU. It's bound to get even crazier with the onslaught of "Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness" and "Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania," with the latter introducing viewers to one of He Who Remains' variants — Kang the Conqueror. It won't be the last time we hear the term "variants" used in the MCU, and fans are hopeful we'll see another one of Loki's in his self-titled show's second season.

Fans expect All-Father Loki to appear in Season 2

It's established in "Loki" that an infinite number of Kang the Conquerors are vying to be the one true god of the timeline. As such, it makes sense for there to be an endless number of Lokis as well, and we were introduced to a few of them in the first season of the show. Most notably, "The Nexus Event" ends with the Loki we all know and love meeting his variants, namely Classic Loki (Richard E. Grant), Boastful Loki (DeObia Oparei), Kid Loki (Jack Veal), and Alligator Loki.

That's a lot of Lokis, but they're far from the only ones out there. After all, it's a big multiverse, and fans have some ideas of what other Lokis we could come across once Season 2 gets off the ground. As u/MySpaceOddyssey posts in a Reddit thread, "Unless I'm mistaken, the villain of the Agent of Asgard comics was a future version of Loki who became king. This, when taken with Loki's tendency to cause nexus events, and his admitted desire of being 'king of space' (not to mention the Asgardian history established in Thor: Ragnarok), suggests that the new multiverse contains not just a bunch of Kang the Conquerors, but also at least one All-Father Loki who's also vying for multiversal domination." 

It certainly makes sense that out of all of the Lokis out there, one would attain the ability to conquer the universe and then would set their sights on controlling every universe. Other fans seemed very interested in this idea, with u/OrganizationNo208 writing, "To see a semi reformed Loki go up [against] who he basically wanted to be would be very interesting." Will the All-Father Loki make their way to "Loki?" That remains to be seen, but with the entire multiverse at its disposal, anything is possible.
