Loki Season 2: Miss Minutes Is the Scariest Villain of the Mulitverse Saga


Miss Minutes’ villainous turn in Loki is the stuff of nightmares, proving that she’s just as terrifying as the Kang variant that created her.

This article contains spoilers for Loki season 2.

Phases 4 and 5 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe have had some pretty intimidating villains thus far. From Gravik (Kingsley Ben-Adir) and his plans to take over the Earth for all Skrulls to Wenwu (Tony Leung) and his ancient rings of power to He Who Remains (Jonathan Majors) and the threat of his variants, the stakes of the Multiverse Saga have been just as formidable to overcome as Thanos and those who came before. But there’s one Loki villain who might just have them all beat – the sentient A.I. clock we all know as Miss Minutes (Tara Strong).

Now stay with me here. I’m not saying that Miss Minutes is necessarily the strongest or most powerful villain. What I’m saying is that she is by far the most ruthless, sadistic, and terrifying villain we’ve seen thus far in the Multiverse Saga, and maybe even the entire MCU.

It doesn’t help that a lot of villains in this era of the MCU have had somewhat reasonable motivations for their actions. Gorr the God Killer (Christian Bale) was heartbroken after losing his daughter and sought revenge on the Gods for her fate. Namor (Tenoch Huerta) wants to protect his people. Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen) has lost everything and everyone she cares about and just wants to find a world where her children exist. The Flag Smashers are fighting for the rights of refugees displaced by the Blip. Even though we may not agree with their actions, it’s hard not to still have some empathy for the things that villains like these are fighting for.
