Did Loki just set up the Multiverse of Madness?

Three years after Loki was killed in Avengers: Infinity War by Thanos, he has returned to screens in a blaze of glorious purpose. Following on from the Marvel Studios logo in his iconic green and gold, the first episode of Loki kicked off the series nicely.

It introduced Agent Mobius and the Time Variance Authority, set up the storyline for the following episodes, and gave the titular character some truly heart-breaking, excellent development delivered impeccably by Tom Hiddleston. However, it has also left fans with a lot of big questions moving forward.

Much like WandaVision, Loki is exploring a completely new aspect of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and so even with a healthy amount of exposition from Mobius and Miss Minutes, there are still question marks over what is to come.

Of course, this is by design as it would be incredibly boring if there was no mystery to the story, but some aspects that require elaboration may go further than just Loki.

Some may have a huge affect on the wider MCU as a whole moving forward, while others may have relatively little impact, but all have left fans dying to know what happens next.

8. Is The TVA The Greatest Power In The Universe?

Let's start with a question posed by the titular character himself after seeing the power of the Time Variance Authority. He had been stripped of his magical powers, he could have been erased from the universe in an instant, and he was well and truly trapped.

However, it wasn't until he saw the drawer full of useless and powerless Infinity Stones that he was able to sit back and appreciate the unrivaled power of the organization. Maybe they really were created by a trio of god-like space lizards to maintain the sacred timeline, and just maybe he really had more than met his match.

He described them as formidable, but that appears to be the understatement of the MCU so far. For the last 13 years, the Infinity Stones have been built up as the most powerful items in the universe, taking Thanos to the levels of basically being a god, but even he would have been rendered powerless by the TVA with ease.

There have been some wonderfully strong beings, artefacts, and characters littered across the MCU so far, but it could be that Loki just introduced the most powerful of all, and by some margin.
