Is Loki a good guy, a bad guy, or does he fall somewhere in the middle?
Loki is traditionally depicted as someone who is very self-focused and traditionally leans toward the side of evil. He certainly showed his dark side in movies such as Thor and The Avengers.
However, Loki has also shown a less evil side in movies such as Thor: Ragnarok and Avengers: Infinity War. This doesn’t suddenly make him a hero, but suggests there is some goodness in his character.
