Loki Is The Bi Frost Giant, Officially. Will There Be T-Shirts?

Loki is a gender-fluid pansexual trickster god of the Marvel Universe. as they were of Norse Mythology. It's only now that they are being a bit more open about it on the comic book page. And because Loki has become one of the more loquacious characters, such discussion is generally danced around and played with rather than addressed outright, whether in the comic books…

Loki
Young Avengers

Or on the television…

But with Al Ewing co-writing Thor with Donny Cates, drawn by Salvador Larroca, we get a chance for Al Ewing to revisit that aspect of Loki, as he advises Thor about what to do about the recently broken Bifrost Bridge, that joins Asgard and Earth – or Midgard.

Marvel Comics
Thor #27

That may be one of the best Loki puns to date, even when Kieron Gillen was writing the character, and that's saying something. While also being as on the nose as a midday TV drama. Can we expect Bi Frost Giant T-shirts for NYCC, or will we have to wait for SDCC? Home-made ones for MCM or Thought Bubble anyone?
