I’D BEEN TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHAT WAS GLOWING IN ROSE’S EYES AND I REALIZED
IT’S A WOLF. A GOLDEN WOLF TURNING TO SHOW ITS FACE, IN HER EYES. THE BIG BAD WOLF.

I swear no one notices the fact that Loki has obviously been TORTURED
like no he’s totally doing this all of his own free will
Yep, totally. Not like he’s having problems walking, or is showing clear signs of exhaustion or anything.
That said, Tony Stark came out of hell humbled and became more heroic in the wake of it. Loki, by contrast, had more of a Heart of Darkness experience, which Hiddleston has mentioned as a factor in his portrayal of Loki: he didn’t come out a hero, he came out something else, held together by stubborn pride and spite, a king in his own mind, betrayed and byronic hero-like in his own mind.
It’s not that they don’t realise Loki has seen some serious shit and possibly been tortured; it’s that his actions, his tics, and his ability to maintain control and still hide behind psychotic-smiling masks and put on a performance worthy of a prince and a lie-smith for S.H.I.E.L.D. and Nick Fury after taking down so many soldiers with apparent ease earlier, despite his obvious pain and exhaustion visible here––these things make it obvious he’s injured in ways that make him more dangerous than pitiable. Like a lion with sore teeth that becomes more likely to eat humans is more monstrous than pitiable.
Loki is like that throughout the Avengers film: an animal in pain, one ankle in a metaphorical steel trap, and given the choice between lashing out at whoever is near, and giving in to the desire to gnaw through his own leg, he’s choosing confrontation and manipulation, and using all his teeth for it.
SOMEBODY HOLD ME THIS IS GENIUSLY DONE. SOMEBODY HOLD ME.
I think I could watch an entire series of that. :) Maybe more.
