AEMH and the End of Season One

Ordinarily I don't worry overmuch about spoilers on my site, but I am warning you now, you might not want to read the rest of this if you really don't want to hear me talk about the end of Season One.

So instead, I give you a couple of microheroes to serve as Spoiler Space:

The All-Father!

Jane Foster

OK, spoilers are over!

Now, on to Asgard.

In the classic MU-616, Loki was the impetus who brought the Avengers together.  In many ways, during Season One, his tendrils have been just about everywhere; he formed the Masters of Evil, which has been one of the major thorns in their side.  

All of Loki's machinations (well, maybe not all of them, but a lot of them) come home to roost.   In "The Casket of Ancient Winters", Thor finds that he is exiled from Asgard; he cannot follow the Enchantress back and regain the Casket of Ancient Winters.  

The Masters of Evil prepare the ground, and Loki's forces invade Midgard (that's us).  In their way - only the mortals of the Avengers plus one beleaguered Thunder God stand in their way.  I don't have any real specific knowledge, but we are told that the Avengers get scattered across the Nine Worlds, trying to survive.  In the end, the Norns (or at least the TV guide summary of the season finale) declare that Loki will stand triumphant.

...but can he hold what he has taken against Earth's Mightiest Heroes?

Time will tell the tale - all I know is that in the meantime, I have a lot of Asgardian-related microheroes to do!
