It's been a busy few months for Loki — as well as Tom Hiddleston, the actor who portrays him — and things will likely get more eventful once Thor: The Dark World hits theaters Friday, Nov. 8. Even though Loki is a dangerous supervillain and spends most of his time throwing knives, making himself invisible, and plotting against his adoptive brother, deep down he's really just like the rest of us. Loki, too, likes to curl up with a good book, kick back and relax at home, and even hang out with kids — lest we forget, he literally has all the time in the world. In honor of the much-anticipated sequel's release this week, we're taking a look at some of the times Loki was actually low-key:

1. Pondering His Life

It's not easy having daddy issues, you guys.

2. Public Speaking

Addressing a crowd can be nerve-wracking, but it really does help to imagine the audience in their underwear.

3. After a Long Talk With a Good Friend

"Wow. I never thought of it that way."

4. Curling Up With a Good Book

What do you think he's reading? Probably something about sorcery, but our bet's on Catcher in the Rye.


See more of Loki being low-key after the jump.

5. Babysitting

Loki isn't exactly the first person we would leave our little ones with, but you have to admit, even him pushing this little girl out of her chair is better than that time he pushes Tony Stark out a window.

6. Remembering a Joke Someone Told Him

It's always funnier the next day, you know?

7. Posing For His Profile Photo

Since Loki "just needs a little love," online dating is the natural next step. This shot is definitely a keeper.

8. Letting His Hair Down After a Long Day of Work

All that mischief-making and mystic-cold generating can take a lot out of you.

9. Daydreaming

"How cool would it be to win the lottery?"

10. Enjoying His Alone Time

Even Loki gets overwhelmed by his responsibilities from time to time. You can't just plot to overthrow your brother every single day.
