The war in ‘War of the Realms’ escalates due to a meal

War and death are dishes best served cold.

Spoilers ahead. You’ve been warned.

Jason Aaron and Russel Dauterman have been building towards War of the Realms for some time now. It’s the war of wars that involves all 10 realms in the universe. Thor is on one side leading the heroes (or so we might think) and Malekith the Accursed is on the other. The first issue of the main event is out this week and it is filled with monsters, fight scenes, and great heroic moments. It all really starts to get go down, however, because of a meal.

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly comics podcast!

In a scene two thirds of the way through the book, Loki has come face to face with his father. His mother is by his side.

He stands in his father’s way from taking over Midgard, aka Earth.

That looks painful. Yep, Loki was eaten by his father. What a way to go, although some might argue it’s fitting given how much of a jerk Loki was in his life.

Just to confirm things, the superheroes looking on react with about as much shock as us.

When it comes to superhero events this might go down as the most epic meal to kick things off ever.

I highly recommend you read the whole issue as this was only a sliver of the entertainment. You can purchase War of the Realms #1 today.
