In 'Thor: Ragnarok,' Thor's cunning adopted brother Loki plays a big part in the story, much to fans' delight. Long a crowd favorite even when he was the villain in 'The Avengers,' Loki's mercurial loyalties shape him into a character who is always compelling, and a fine foil for the upright Thor.

When Iron Man 3 came out in 2013, I remember the Internet cheering when Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow) got in the last punch on bad guy Aldrich Killian (Guy Pearce). “The girl gets the bad guy in the end!” The Internet heralded this as a semi-feminist great moment in an ultimately disappointing film.
