Loki Season 2 Episode 5 Uncovers a Marvel Comics Character's Hidden Identity

Marvel has just shown that Loki had Verity Wills as a part of his plan all along in a surprising twist.


In Loki Season 2 Episode 5, they showed a secret identity of a character from the Marvel Comics. On Twitter, user @ImSheWhoRemains found out that Hunter B-15's real name is Verity Willis. It turns out she's a cool character from Loki's Marvel Comics stories. In Loki: Agent of Asgard, she traveled with Loki all over time and helped save the world from big problems. In the comics, Verity has a special power - she can tell when someone is lying and figure out the truth. This is really handy when you're wandering around the Marvel Universe with a Loki from a different timeline.

In the comics, Verity goes with Loki to a place where he fights with an evil version of himself called King Loki. This is kinda similar to what's happening in the Disney+ Loki show. But at the end of all this fighting, it might not be another Loki waiting for him, but a more bad guy. The fact that Verity is in an MCU show shows that Marvel Studios likes to give a little nod to the comics without actually saying the character's name on the screen. Mixing things up is a big part of the MCU, like the music at the start of the shows and the extra scenes after the credits.

Life "In the Past" Was Not the Same

Loki Season 2 Episode 5

Loki Season 2 Episode 5 is all about seeing familiar things and meeting people we've met before. The person in charge of designing the show talked to Marvel.com about making O.B.'s workshop in a different timeline. Kasran Farahani wanted viewers to feel like they've seen things like this before, but also a little different, like déjà vu. So, for all our time-traveling friends, there are things in their stories that remind us of what we've seen before, like Hunter B-15 helping out in her other life.

"I think that was something throughout the episode we were talking about you wanted it to just feel like you're home with these characters, but truly uncanny in the true sense of the word. It's home-like, and that is what makes it feel familiar, but also potentially really odd. A lot of that was trying to capture, again— and this was a through line in Season 1, bringing it through here— a little bit of that Wizard of Oz feel of, its home, but it's not. It's filled with familiar faces, but they're not the people that you know," Executive Producer Kevin Wright said during the piece.

Loki Season 2 is Coming to an End Soon


Tom Hiddleston, a favorite in Marvel Studios, is back in Loki Season 2 as the tricky God of Mischief. The show is all about time-traveling fun and will be available on Disney+ starting on October 6th. Loki is joined once again by Mobius, played by Owen Wilson, as they try to make sure time stays on the right track. After the events of Season 1, when his variant Sylvie, played by Sophia Di Martino, caused some trouble by offing He Who Remains and bringing Kang the Conqueror's anger to the Multiverse, Loki needs to go on another adventure to prevent reality from falling apart.

We last saw Loki in the post-credits scene of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, where he and Mobius were keeping an eye on one of Kang's mysterious variants. In Loki Season 2, the story of the Multiverse Saga in the Marvel Cinematic Universe will continue.
