At the Mercy of Loki

Season: 1
Episode Number: 4a
Season Episode Number: 4a
Production Number:


Voices: Chris Wiggins (Thor), Len Carlson (Loki), Peg Dixon (Jane Foster), Bernard Cowan (Narrator, Odin).

Plot: Loki has kidnapped Jane and brought her to Asgard and has tricked Thor into following him. But what is the Trickster's master plan?

Review (Warning! Spoilers!): This episode follows the adventures seen in Journey Into Mystery #116, in which Thor and Loki are on trial for lying to Odin. But the events that lead up to the trials are actually an entirely different story, one that Grantray-Lawrence Animation didn't want to tell.

So in order to bring everyone up to speed, they create this completely new chapter using scenes found in past episodes. They do a good job crafting a new tail in order to make the other two chapters make sense.

There are some things here that you won't see in the rest of the series since this is a made up episode. One of those things is one sequence of extremely fast cutting made up of stills from elsewhere in the chapter. I was quite surprised to see this as it doesn't fit in with anything else in the Marvel Super Heroes.
