Thor Jealousy

Jealousy

Loki's consumed by jealousy: of his brother, of his father, of everyone and everything around him. In fact, we could just repeat all of Loki's lines here and have the whole "jealousy" thing covered. And Thor himself gets a bit green-eyed when yearning for Asgard from his exile on Earth.

A lot of the drama in Thor concerns people wanting what others have, and they're defined not just by what they want, but how they resist—or fail to resist—the urge to claim it.
