Journey Into Mystery Focuses on Lady Sif, Loses Tumblr Support

With new Journey Into Mystery writer Kathryn Immonen shifting the focus from Kid Loki to Sif, will the book be able to maintain its mildly creepy Tumblr following?

The Outhouse has focused a lot in the past on the creepy Tumblr following of Stephanie Brown, the former Batgirl who is rumored to be returning in a DC fourth wave book. However, obsessive fanbases of questionable motivation are not relegated only to DC's teen girl characters. Kid Loki, the teenage boy version of the villain Loki, has a respectable Tumblr following of his own. That following is not pleased with the most recent Marvel NOW! announcement.

At Marvel's Next Big Thing conference call today, Immonen did her best to quell fan disappointment, even trying to compare Sif to Kid Loki by saying, "I see a similarity with her and Loki because neither of them can ever be Thor, and I think that would have more effect on her than anything else." Immonen is likely missing the appeal of the Kid Loki character, however, which has nothing to do with Thor and everything to do with a vulnerable, likeable teen character that many fans identify with, and some... well, let's not get into that.

Fans reacted quickly to the announcement.

"Nononononononononononononononononononoooooooooo", said Tumblr blogger Ikollovesleah.

Fellow tumblr user Lokibrony had no words to add, but instead posted a picture of Loki looking sad, an image which was liked/reblogged nearly 100 times.

The Outhouse offers its condolences to fans of Gillen's Journey Into Mystery, which was, in this reporter's opinion, the best book currently being published by Marvel, and looks forward to upset tumblr fans reblogging a link to this article along with angry comments calling us douches, asshats, or meaniefaces. We prefer being called hilarious, funnier than you, or the lover of fine wine and women, but we appreciate your publicity.

Immonen and Valerio Schiti take over Journey Into Mystery with issue #646,
