Glorious writing is glorious.

I love Whedon.

No one is stopping me, so I’m just going to explain why the writing in this scene is so glorious. 

First of all: context. Loki has just sent his brother flying down the ship, testing (his words) if “Gods really are immortal as humans think”. He is about to go away, but Coulson says “You’re gonna lose”, and so he stops. 

If Coulson had howled like a wounded dog, showed him he was in any way feeling inferior, probably even used other words, Loki would have snickered at him and continued walking away, but the words sound as a matter of fact, not as a retort. Coulson states Loki is going to lose and Loki stops, looks back and urges him to continue: “Am I?” he asks, and he waits for Coulson to answer. Loki has other plans, plans he would never stop for what he sees as an inferior being, but he pauses to hear what he has to say, because, despite being the smart one and reading the battlefield as no one else could, he has always been seen by others as the inferior, as the losing one, and he has never found as satisfying answer as to why. Loki’s skills, in his own eyes, are not inferior: he loves lies and deception and sees them as an art that should rightfully put him over everybody else, except that no one regards it as highly as he does. Until now, however, the people who did shun him were Asgardian warriors he thought to be stupid (and thus blind to his charm), but this time it is Coulson, who is in a government agency but is not a field soldier, is not strong, or buffed like Thor: he is a strategist, and in this he is a lot more similar to Loki than any other Asgardian warrior, and so he is someone whose answer to “Am I?”, whose reason for not being afraid, Loki perceives, might be different. But, of course, the answer is not worth listening because Loki cares about what Coulson says, but because he needs to disprove him: Loki has already proved wrong what the Asgardians think of him (they are a stupid race of warriors), and the moment he does the same with the reasons of someone who is not a warrior, will further clear, in his own mind, his own sense of inferiority. He could kill him in rage, but just killing Coulson for saying that would always leave the wound open within him, would corrode him with the possibility of there being another reason, so Loki needs to listen and he stops.

And then Coulson says “It’s in your nature.”, and Loki walks toward him, everything else forgotten. Coulson has touched a nerve, because nature is something Loki has no control over, and something he knows has marked him as an inferior from the very moment he was born as a frost giant, as a being he has always seen as monstrous and as subjugated to Asgardians. And this very nature has always marked him as inferior to Thor: Thor and Loki both have enormous powers, but while Loki is naturally inclined to magic and illusion, Thor is a natural warrior. Even before knowing he was a frost giant, he has always desired to be like his brother (life is a lot easier for the champions), but his own nature, which Loki likes a lot, would never allow that. The choice was trying to be a warrior to fit in the Asgardian society, or follow his trickster nature, and Loki chose the latter, and now, if his nature is losing, then it is Loki’s own fault if he’ll always be the one to be put down. So being told that words, makes Loki “needy” to disprove Coulson’s words more than ever. He walks toward him, explaining what is wrong and talking to your enemy it’s not a good strategy, you should kill him, but he needs to make him see he is wrong, because Loki itself needs to see that he is wrong.

And then Coulson says: “you lack conviction”, and that makes Loki really blind with rage. He does not admit it to itself (and so he still tries to deny it) but he really lacks conviction. Sending Thor spiraling down the ship? He doesn’t think for a second that would kill him, he has already seen Thor surviving worse. And, later, when he sticks a knife in Thor’s side? SERIOUSLY LOKI ARE YOU EVEN TRYING? The truth is that he is not, and going outside of the scope of “The Avengers” for a second, in “Thor&Loki: Blood Brothers” (watch it) Loki admits it, after hours spent trying to convince himself of the opposite: “I don’t want to kill Thor.”, he says. He wants to put him down, rise above him, and he hurts him in every way he knows for this very reason, but killing his a different thing: he still loves his brother, and without him, he’d have nothing left to top. However, being told so sting. Needing his brother, not being able to kill him, still marks Loki (in his devious mind) as the inferior, as the losing one, as the one in the glorious shadow of Thor. So Coulson blinds Loki with rage, and rage makes his brain slow, and that is the reason Loki does not realize the “bullet” is coming and does not teleport away before he gets hit straight in the chest.

And this, this is the only way Coulson could ever hit Loki, by making him blind with rage. How do you hit someone whose strength is greater than yours? With words. Coulson knows it, because he would not have his job if he didn’t, and Loki knows it too, and still falls for what usually is his own weapon. And he falls for his weapon because of his feelings, which is the thing he’s been trying to put aside since the events in Thor, and is the thing he tries not to listen to when Thor asks him to go back home. And of course he doesn’t: when feelings get hold of him, he loses, and this scenes proves it again to him.

When writing, the rule is that every scene should move the story forward, or explain something about the characters. This scene does two things:

1) It shows how Loki is weak to attacks to his own persona, how his feelings make him vulnerable, and in doing so pursues his character and makes him an incredible villain.

2) Makes Coulson a badass, someone who is able to top the trickster God with tricks, and in doing so, makes us relate and cheer for him, and makes us care about his death, which is an important plot point later.

And in top of all, makes it believable for a human being to defeat a God. There is no deus-ex-machina. There is psychology.

This is, hands down, brilliant storytelling in action, and someone everyone who tells stories should aspire to write.

Also, Coulson last sentence: “So that’s what it does”. To explain why this is even greater storytelling, I’ll just quote Whedon itself:

“Make it dark, make it grim, make it tough, but then, for the love of God, tell a joke.” 
― Joss Whedon 


(and all this is Joss Whedon fangirling at its finest)

Also so human. Gonna die? Might as well stab this god right in his pride before I go.
