In Loki S2E1, we got to see the God of Mischief Time Slipping on multiple occasions. A glimpse of it was already revealed in the Trailer itself. Some fans on the internet have started a discussion that raises a valid query – is Loki’s Time Slipping similar to Mile’s Glitching in Spider-Man Across the Spider-Verse? Well, there are some factors that make both of them completely the same and contrasting at the same time. And in today’s article, we would like to explain that to you too.
Is Loki’s Time Slipping and Spider-Man’s (Miles) Glitching the Same?
Both of these physical issues are remarkably identical in appearance. However, Time Slipping is something that sends Loki to the past and future against his choice. He doesn’t have control over when and where he is sent to. On the other hand, Miles is Glitching in Spider-man: Across the Spiderverse because he isn’t present in his own reality or Universe. But I assure you, that Time Slipping and Glitching are nothing similar to one another. And I have a very good reason to prove that.
The causes and remedies of these respective issues are different and I will explain them below. If not fixed, both of these problems can cause Loki and Miles to lose their existence.
Why is Loki Time Slipping?
As of Loki Season 2 Episode 1, we aren’t sure what’s the actual cause of Time Slipping. However, fans are speculating that it has something to do with Loki being sent through the Time Door by Sylvie. Or else, this is caused because of the death of He Who Remains. There are several reasons for that and I guess, we will get our answers in Episode 2 of Loki. Thanks to Ouroboros who built a Temporal Aura Extractor to fix Time Slipping.
Why is Miles Glitching in Across the Spider-Verse?
Miles’s Glitching is happening because he is traveling through the Multiverse using the Spider Society’s Teleporter. While being teleported, there is a molecular instability in the body that causes Miles or any other Spiderman to Glitch outside of their reality. Thanks to Miguel O’Hara (Spider-Man 2099) who got Miles’s Glitching fixed in the Spiderverse with a Multiverse Wristband.
Time Slipping and Glitching are shown as consequences of messing with Time and Reality. You will know more about it once the rest of the episodes of Loki Season 2 drop.
