SUNDAY COMICS- A Few Words (and fan art) About Hunter B-15
LOKI is good, but let's talk about HUNTER B-15 ♥
They did their best to hide Wunmi Mosaku in the armored uniform of Hunter B-15, field commander of the Time Variance Authority minutemen unit that nabbed everyone's favorite adopted Odinson in the first episode of LOKI. But not enough to hold back my fanboy crush machinery.
MEET HUNTER B-15 of the almighty Time Variance Authority
I stopped swooning long enough to draw HUNTER B-15 this week. I also wrote some words about the show on my movie review blog.
Hunter B-15 is brought to life by Wunmi Mosaku, whom I have already fallen in love with in the Spectrum On Demand streaming show TEMPLE, where her character Mercy King uses her feminine wiles to wrangle her thirsty ex-lover Keith into helping her hunt down the bumbling getaway driver whose ineptitude landed her son in jail.
Mosaku shifts brilliantly from brutal to maternal to seductive from one moment to the next in TEMPLE, and she has cranked her badass black lady vibe up a notch in LOKI as the unflinching steel-toe-booted jawbreaker Hunter B-15.
Hunter B-15 wears her power- both physical and bureaucratic- on her sleeve, and fearlessly speaks her truth even in the face of other authority figures.
Consistently at odds with Loki and Mobius (his TVA handler - played brilliantly by Owen Wilson - who enlists the doomed Asgardian to help catch a more murderous variant), Hunter B-15 is probably being set up as the typical company loyalist with an axe to grind with the (anti-)hero of the story.
If that's all they do with her, it will be a shame, because this character has potential.
