(Thor the Mighty Avenger#5 (fb) - BTS) - Loki, as with all Asgardians, was forbidden by Odin to reveal to Thor the reasons for Thor's exile from Asgard.

(Thor the Mighty Avenger#2) - Jane Foster showed Thor pictures from an old book that included Loki.

(Thor the Mighty Avenger#3) - Thor experienced a nightmare (likely generated by Loki) and woke up suddenly to find an image of Loki, the trickster using a mirror trick to appear. Almost detected by Asgard, Loki planted a spell in Thor's mind that later caused Thor to see false and mutated visions of those around him, such as seeing Giant-Man as an aggressive Frost Giant.

(Thor the Mighty Avenger#5 (fb) - BTS) - Loki hunted through old books of forbidden knowledge and came across the magical book, the Bifrosticon.

(Thor the Mighty Avenger#5 (fb)) - Thor was watching television alone when Loki emerged from the screen using astral projection through electronic media. This mode let Loki acquire Midgard's English language and a large amount of information on Midgard. For hidden motives, Loki summoned the magical tome, the Bifrosticon, and passed it to Thor so that the exile could travel to Bifrost, the rainbow bridge that led to Asgard. Loki quickly cut contact to evade detection by Asgard.

Loki as Merlin( Free Comic Book Day 2011 (Thor the Mighty Avenger)#1) - BTS (fb) - Loki accessed a magic tome that unexpectedly threw him back in time back to King Arthur's realm. There he imprisoned Merlin and took his role, claiming a regeneration to explain the face change.

(Free Comic Book Day 2011 (Thor the Mighty Avenger)#1) - Loki visited Merlin in a dungeon and angrily threw a goblet at the caged but defiant Merlin before leaving. Merlin used the residual magic to enchant the cup to transport any hero who touched it. Loki later rode with King Arthur and Sir Gawain, the latter having recovered the mystical Holy Grail, an item of vast power that Loki secretly coveted. Captain America and Thor appeared suddenly, torn from their time by the goblet enchanted by Merlin. Loki distracted the others with a magical dragon construct and fled with the Grail on horseback, pursued by Captain America and Thor. However, Merlin was unleashed from his prison and generated a swirling portal to shunt the Grail to another dimension, but Loki greedily hung onto the Grail and was also sucked into the portal, which then shut.

It can be assumed he had the same parentage as his "standard" Earth-616 counterpart.

Preliminary sketches (in the collected edition) show a costume design for Loki that included a harness with a sword and dagger hidden on his back.

I wonder if the Bifrosticon was really an old book. Its name and specific spell suggest that it many have been generated by the mischievous Loki.

I consider the FCBD 2011 issue part of Earth-10091 given the writer and artist, costumes and character context of Thor. It's also included in the compendium collecting all of this Thor the Mighty Avenger series.

The Bifrosticon was an old magical tome discovered by Loki. Loki passed the book to Thor, who then used the book's spell to transport himself to the foot of the rainbow bridge, Bifrost. It was left behind on Earth.
