Owen Wilson's mustache on Loki is a very important tribute to Marvel history

From today it is available in the catalog of Disney Plus Loki, the new series of the Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe what brings back to Tom Hiddleston embodying the evil version of the God of Deception who escaped with the Tesseract during the events of Avengers: Endgame.

Undoubtedly one of the highlights of Loki’s episode 1×01 is Owen wilson, who plays in fiction Mobius, TVA’s office manager, the Time Keepers who are dedicated to preserving the Sacred Timeline and preventing it from being altered, something Loki accidentally did when he eloped with the Tesseract.

But we are not going to focus on Wilson’s good portrayal of the character in the loki series, but in his appearance, since the mustache he sports is a tribute to the former Marvel editor Mark Gruenwald, who died in 1996.

Gruenwald was a major figure in Marvel in the 1980s and early 1990s, being a screenwriter for Captain America for more than a decade and especially known as the creator of the USAgente as well. He was also editor of several iconic series, such as Avengers, The Almighty Thor and Iron Man, among others.

But more importantly, Mark Gruenwald was the editor and co-creator of The Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe, a manual that, in a similar way to TVA, tries to bring order to the fictional universe by organizing its history and creating power statistics for the most die-hard fans.

The Loki series is available on Disney Plus from today June 9, 2021, premiering a new episode every Wednesday.
