This won't be a new thing to cosplayers, who have often portrayed Thor in a female fashion.

But far more common than female Thor, is female Loki.

Which is perfectly natural. Tom Hiddleston in the Thor and Avengers movies made for an androgynous Loki rather than the wrinkled hideous man traditionally of the comic books – which was backed by the younger versions of Loki that have appeared in the comics of late.

And in the Norse legends, Loki was happy to switch genders, for the purpose of trickery.

Regarding the new comic book Loki, Agent Of Asgard, writer Al Ewing stated "Yes, Loki is bi and I'll be touching on that… He'll shift between genders occasionally as well."

But there hasn't been too much of that in the comic series so far. Issue 2 had him shapeshifting genders as a disguise, appearing as Trixie The Hacker.

But in the Original Sin spinoff? The final page of today's issue…  Original Sin #5.3: Thor & Loki: The Tenth Realm?

Image (22)An actual female Loki. And as female Lokis go… that's not very androgynous at all, is she?
