Loki is only two episodes in, and already has a new character raising tons of questions. Originally dubbed colloquially as Lady Loki (Sophia di Martino), the secretive character may not be who viewers initially thought.
The premise of the show follows Loki (Tom Hiddleston) after he’s captured by the Time Variance Authority (TVA), an entire world of pencil pushers and armed task forces dedicated to keeping the universe on one timeline. Loki pairs up with Agent Mobius (played by a white-haired Owen Wilson) to take down a variant causing trouble in the timeline: another version of Loki.
But after the variant version of Loki was revealed in the second episode, fans realized it may not be a female version of Loki at all, but Enchantress, a magical character also related to the God of Mischief.
Who is Sylvie/Enchantress in the Comics?
In the comics, Sylvie Ashton is a regular girl from Broxton, Oklahoma. Her life changes irrevocably when the Asgardians decide to make her town their new home. One day, she wakes up with magic powers, including sorcery, teleportation, and telekinesis. Ashton takes on the name Enchantress (inspired by the Asgardian Amora) and joins the Young Avengers. She even takes on a faux Asgardian accent sometimes. She eventually discovers she’s actually been given powers by Loki himself, for no real reason other than–you guessed it–causing mischief.
Nothing has been confirmed yet in the TV show, although one fan noticed a possible hint to Sophia di Martino’s character in the international credits of the second episode.
