With that being said, the Time Variance Authority agent has echoed loud his morality and loyalty throughout the series. However, the most intriguing part included his bonding with Tom Hiddleston’s God of Mischief, AKA Loki. While their chemistry and friendship were indeed sublime, it all went heartbreaking when Mobius died after getting pruned. With that being said, a new version of Mobius is going to appear in Loki 2; but nothing could match the charm original version carried with him.

Agatha Harkness

But as the story proceeds, Wanda Maximoff comes to know that Hahn’s Agatha Harkness is none other than an evil witch. With that being said, the character established her as a right fit in the premises of Marvel’s WandaVision by getting transformed into a scheming and cackling villain by the end.

Yelena Belova

With that being said, the intriguing combination of Yelena’s versatility and Pugh’s spectacular performance is what makes the character the best new addition in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
