    Neil Gaiman's graphic novel series The Sandman has several Norse mythology-inspired characters, including the trickster Loki.

  • The Mask 1994

    In the movie The Mask, Jim Carrey's character gets into all sorts of trouble when he puts on a mask of Loki's face.

  • American Gods 2001

    Neil Gaiman didn't leave Loki alone after The Sandman. In 2001 he wrote the novel American Gods, which includes Loki (under the name Low-Key Lyesmith) as a character.

  • LOKI: Heroes of Mythology 2007

    LOKI is a PC video game that gamespot.com calls "a solid rip-off" of Diablo II.

  • Loki God of Fire 2007

    Heavy metal band Manowar released a song about the trickster god called "Loki God of Fire." The lyrics actually sum him up kind of well.

    In Too Human, an Xbox 360 game, you get to play Balder (called Baldur) and fight against Loki and his army of machines.

  • Thor 2011

    The movie Thor is based on the Marvel comic books, and you know what that means: Loki is a total villain.

  • Thor and Loki: Blood Brothers 2011

    This animated motion comic from Marvel seems to have a less black-and-white take on Loki: "But just why does Loki hate his brother Thor? And could it be that this master of mischief isn’t really the villain he’s been branded? Loki's insatiable lust for power and his feud with Thor take on new meaning in this resonant epic."
