Loki Episode 5 SPOILERS Follow! In Loki Episode 5, "Journey Into Mystery" Tom Hiddleston's Loki gets to explore the strange world he woke up in, after being "deleted" by the Time Variance Authority. Turns out the realm was a TVA dumping ground - a place at the end of time, where unwanted variants and timelines can be consumed by an entity called the Alioth. One of the most fun aspects of this wild concept is that the realm at the end of time contains a treasure trove of deep-cut Marvel Comics Easter eggs - including the infamous Thanos-Copter!
The Thanos-Copter comes from a late-70s Spider-Man comic, in which the Mad Titan Thanos inexplicably decorates a one-man helicopter in his image, in an attempt to steal a Cosmic Cube from the street-level hero, Hellcat. The Thanos-Copter has become a running joke in Marvel lore, often showing up as an Easter egg gag. And now Marvel fans are celebrating having the Thanos-Copter arrive in the Marvel Cinematic Universe!
