Marvel fans were shocked by Loki and Sylvie’s ‘incestuous’ kiss in the season finale.
In Wednesday’s game-changing season finale, LOKI fans finally got to see the moment they’d been waiting for, and social media comments were split down the middle.
Loki, Marvel’s newest comic book serial, officially finished its first season on Disney+. Despite the fact that a mid-credits stinger confirms the God of Mischief will return for another round of time-hopping mayhem, many viewers will be hesitant to return after this week’s controversial kiss.
With the latest episode of Loki, Tom Hiddleston’s Norse trickster Loki Laufeyson and his female variation, Sylvie (Sophia Di Martino), sparked a sensation among Marvel fans.
Following a brief but memorable encounter on the doomed moon Lamentis-1, the two variations have gradually grown closer over the course of the series.
By the end of the first season, Loki and Sylvie had finally had a kiss at the edge of time, with the fate of the multiverse on the line.
Sylvie, however, stuck to her nefarious ways and sent her male counterpart falling back down to the TVA.
Many Loki fans were astonished Marvel was ready to add such an atypical relationship to the long-running franchise, even if their romantic interchange appeared inevitable by the third episode of the series.
Loki’s narcissistic fixation with a version of himself from another timeline was even compared to incest by some viewers.
“Despite knowing [full]well that kiss was coming even as a betrayal, I still find it disgusting,” one Twitter user commented.
“Please Marvel, let Taika [Waititi] write and direct season 2, is it too much to ask?” they asked.
Director Taika Waititi is presently working on the Thor: Love and Thunder sequel, which will regretfully not include another appearance by Loki.
“So they really went through with the incest???” wrote another disgruntled admirer. I stopped watching after the fourth episode.”
“Stop,” said a third. Stop with the honest talk. It’s akin to incest. During the first part of the episode, I was uneasy.”
Others viewed Loki and Sylvie’s connection as a setback for Marvel’s LGBTQ+ portrayal, given that the supervillain had previously been confirmed as canonically bisexual.

Another disgruntled Twitter user added, “This was so f****d up.”
“As a bisexual person, seeing someone in my favorite franchise share my sexuality only to kiss a version of themselves.”Brinkwire Summary News”.
