In fiction, the narcissist is a frequent character type that usually suggests someone who, if they aren’t a flat-out villain of some kind, are at least a major league jerk. In the MCU, Loki in his self-titled show is told by many people (including himself at one point) that he is a narcissist.
Is he? Lindsay Ellis took a look into that idea.
Ellis in her video essay examines what a narcissist actually is, whether or not Loki actually qualifies as one, and whether or not being a bit of a narcissist is necessarily a bad thing. But then she has a point to make about another Marvel movie that may have featured an even bigger narcissist than Loki if Loki even qualifies as one. Curious? See below for details.
