We are just three episodes in and ‘Loki’ has already given us so many moments to cherish for. However, it was the ending moments of the second episode where we were introduced to a new character that completely took our breath away. Fans got the first glimpse of the Loki variant that was causing all the chaos and the newest variant turned out to be a female version of Loki.

A lot of people claimed that it was Lady Loki while others believed that Sylvie has made her debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). According to comics, Sylvie was just an average girl living in Broxton until the Asgardians moved their home to Oklahoma. One day Sylvie woke up with magical powers. Unbeknownst to Sylvie, these powers were given to her by Loki (Tom Hiddleston) for yet unknown purposes. She takes on the name Enchantress and joins the Young Avengers. Later, it is revealed that Loki had granted her the powers and was using her for his own needs.

In the comics, Sylvie is a youthful aspirant, Enchantress, and can take any form. Additionally, she has the power to travel to an undefined distance.

Since the introduction of her character, there have been a lot of claims about the real identity of Sylvie. However, it seems like actor Sophie Di Martino has finally addressed the matter and given a new perspective to all the discussion. While speaking in an interview with Screen Rant​, Di Martino revealed that Marvel has created an “original character” and Sylvie’s story is an entirely new story.

She said, “The character is Sylvie and she’s her own character. The show is inspired by the comics and by lots of different things in the comics, but our story is a brand new story and a new backstory for Sylvie.”

Di Martino’s remarks mean that fans might not see any kind of twist regarding who Sylvie is. However, we should not forget that it is Marvel we are talking about and the actors are told to not spoil the fun for fans. So, it might be another instance where Di Martino is just being tight-lipped about what might happen in future episodes.

As far as the series is concerned, Loki and Sylvie are currently trapped on Lamentis-1 and are finding a way to get out of the dying planet. Meanwhile, we get to know that all the agents working at the Time Variance Authority (TVA) are variants. On the other hand, the duo is trapped. The plan is to get the Ark to take off before the apocalypse destroys the moon. Sylvie agrees, and both of them try to enter the Ark before a big chunk of the planet obliterates it.

However, it is yet to be seen if they escaped the planet or not. ‘Loki’ returns with a new episode every Wednesday on Disney+.
