by the sounds of it its someone who can manipulate luck and chances, so could this be the return of Pouka?
They do call Loki the Trickster for a reason. My money’s on him.
Interesting though . . . Hermod seems to have discovered the Speed Force
More likely, he and other gods like Hermes/Mercury are the origin of it. And they are probably the only ones that can use it at any speed with no ill affects.
Can we call it the Hurry Up Force instead to avoid any copyright issues? ^_^
If your ability allows you to sidestep all obstacles and get directly to your goal, then that isn’t cheating. It’s using your abilities which the games are all about aren’t they? It’s like having a foot race, and not allowing anyone with two legs or more to enter.
But what if their abilities aren’t what’s getting the job done?
Loki is a trickster. Tricks are his abilities.
I wonder, is it proper to call that a “sedan chair”? It looks more like an SUV.
And that first panel so reminds me of most gangster/mobster films at one point. Limo with darkened windows pulls up, rolls down a window, and says to person “We need to talk. Get in.” It then pulls away and they talk, usually ending with a warning or “an offer that he cannot refuse.”
Well, Hel does go all out with her stuff… including her tricked out sedan chair. And I’m glad you noticed the little nod there. Seth actually threw in the tinted windows and such to make it look a lot more mobster than I originally thought about when I wrote it up. It’s good to see someone noticed it.
I don’t see why it isn’t possible that they just sent Hermod to get the axe, after all he could have just zoomed over to the centre, and zoomed back before the other pantheons even left the starting line…
yeah…that’s where my money would be…
If I had any…money
Can someone please explain to me this sentance?
“He tracks you down by taking the long way into a dimensional pocket…all the time?”
Is this “dimensional pocket” a shortcut or something from the school to Odin’s home? If it is, what is the short way into a dimensional pocket? Thanks in advance.
Or is Hel’s “cab” the dimensional pocket?
Hel’s personal sedan chair is much roomier on the inside than its appearance on the outside. So that’s what’s considered the dimensional pocket (it’s her little piece of Helheim away from Helheim). The basic rules of a pocket dimension is that there is typically one way in and out (in Dungeons & Dragons terms the opening to a bag of holding… or in Star Trek terms if you want to consider a holodeck a virtual pocket dimension, the arch would be the way in-and-out). Since these dimensional pockets are out of the way so normal people won’t stumble upon them (and what some people hide in them), they’re not easy to get into without taking the “short” way in (the door to Hel’s sedan chair, the arch, the opening of the bag of holding, etc).
I think the pocket is hef’s cab
And this is a taxi that you do NOT want to take, or try to stiff the driver on. (i.e. tip heavily) If you do, there will literally be Hel to pay.
Heck, even taking this cab is likely to result in a “hell of a ride”.
On a “green note”, since that seems to be Hel’s favorite color, you will notice that her sedan “chair”, is completely eco-green and made of recycled materials. There are no emission from is use since it is powered by zombies, which are recycled items in themselves. And the body and frame are made from the bones and corpses of many different people and creatures. (I can see a cat next to the human leg on the roof, for example.) Even the chair that she is sitting is is made from recycled bones. (Norse mythology does state that she has a throne of bones from which she rules Nefhiem, IIRC)
Is it just me, or does the round skull near the left corner on the roof of the HelMobile look like Jack Skellington’s head?
Sounds to me like Odin is helping them cheat!
