When “Loki” graced our screens in its debut season, the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) introduced us to a figure more enigmatic than the titular character – He Who Remains, a variant of Kang, masterfully played by Jonathan Majors. But with the inception of the multiverse after Sylvie’s shocking decision to kill him, there’s an indication that a new character might be wielding even more authority within the Time Variance Authority (TVA).
A Surpassing Power in the TVA
As “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania” fans anticipate Jonathan Majors’ portrayal of Kang the Conqueror, it’s becoming clear that Loki’s second season might be introducing a character who could overshadow He Who Remains’ influence within the TVA. And no, it’s not another variant of Kang.

Enter OB, a promising new character to grace our screens in the imminent second season. Portrayed by Ke Huy Quan, this character’s importance cannot be understated, especially after the tantalizing hints dropped by Kevin Wright, “Loki’s” executive producer, in a chat with Entertainment Weekly.
According to Wright, OB isn’t just another figure navigating the corridors of the TVA. He’s essentially the backbone of the organization’s technological frontier. As Wright elucidates, OB has a deep connection with every technological marvel within the TVA – he either birthed it into existence or maintains its optimal performance. He stated: “His job is basically every piece of tech, every computer, every thing that is running at the TVA. He either designed it, or he fixes it and keeps it running.”
Deciphering OB’s Role in the Upcoming Season
With the release of the “Loki” season 2 trailer, fans got their initial glimpse of Ke Huy Quan in his MCU debut. It’s evident that OB is embedded within the TVA’s “Repairs and Advancement” sector, a pivotal position given the technological heartbeat of the TVA.
The trailers have further highlighted the relationship between OB and Owen Wilson’s charismatic character, Mobius M. Mobius. The dynamics between these two becomes apparent when Mobius seeks OB’s expertise to unravel the enigmatic condition plaguing Tom Hiddleston‘s Loki. Labelled as “time-slipping” by OB, this affliction seems poised to be a central plot point in the upcoming season, suggesting that Quan’s character will have a significant role in aiding the God of Mischief.
In conclusion, as we gear up for another time-twisting, reality-bending adventure with “Loki” season 2, it’s evident that the narrative’s compass might pivot around the technological prowess of OB. With a domain that potentially surpasses even He Who Remains, OB promises to be an integral component in Loki’s latest escapades.
