History: (Spider-Man & His Amazing Friends cartoon episode - "The Vengeance of Loki" (fb)) - Loki, the Asgardian god of evil, was the half-brother of the heroic god Thor and son of Odin. Via unrevealed means, Loki came into possession of one of two Twins of the Gods gems, which added to his powers.
(Spider-Man & His Amazing Friends
cartoon episode - "The Vengeance of Loki") - Loki magically sent an iceberg
directly into the path of an oil tanker. He watched from his
throne in the
Forest of Thorns as the ship tried to avoid the iceberg but he made
sure the massive
chunk of ice followed them until it hit, shearing open the hull and
freeing both the
trapped ship of Eric the Viking
and the missing second Twins of the Gods gem,
although Loki was initially unaware the gem was freed. When Loki
soon spotted the gem, he raced from his lair and down the Rainbow
Bridge to Earth.
Landing on Earth, Loki hid as Thor and the Spider-Friends, who had teamed up when Thor's search for the Twins of the Gods led him to the oil tanker being rescued by the Spider-Friends, arrived at the gem's exact location. Thanking Thor for freeing the gem he sought, Loki transformed into a polar bear and attacked Iceman. As they battled across the ice, they fell into the water and near Eric's wrecked Viking ship. Loki stole the second gem from the ship's mast and surfaced. He dropped the polar bear disguise and announced his proposed vengeance against Thor before banishing him and Iceman to the Desert of Despair and the realm of Fire, respectively. With the two heroes gone, Loki assumed Thor's form. Landing on the resurfaced ship, Loki (as Thor) used his hammer to revive Eric and make his speech understandable. He then told the confused warrior that the afterlife would be denied him unless he destroyed all modern cities. Loki then enchanted Eric's blade before blasting Spider-Man and Firestar with his own power and trapping them within the Twins of the Gods gems on his wrists. With the heroes trapped, Loki (still posing as Thor) enchanted Eric's ship and flew it to New York City.
As they neared the city, Loki laughed at the struggling forms of Spider-Man and Firestar within the Twins of the Gods. When they arrived, Loki shouted down to the people how they would all be serving him while Eric rained down destruction. When the crowd turned against "Thor," the fake thunder god smiled. He leaped from the ship and landed on the United Nation building, declaring that he would conquer New York first then the world. When Iceman and the real Thor escaped their imprisonment and returned to Earth via the Rainbow Bridge, the two thunder gods battled. Loki hurtled his hammer at Thor but the real thunder god easily caught it and smacked Loki back before the real Thor pried the Twins of the Gods from Loki's wrists. Having been defeated, Loki was on his knees as his half-brother freed Spider-Man and Firestar. Loki then begged for mercy as Thor banished him back to Asgard, specifically the same prison Loki had previously created for Thor in the Desert of Despair. Loki wondered if that was how it would end for him in such a deserted landscape.

John Stephenson was the credited voice actor for Loki. Stats are approximated from his 616 counterpart.
I don't believe we ever see Loki's hair but his eyebrows are black.
Loki refers to Odin
as "father" but Thor as "half-brother." It's unclear if Odin was Loki's
true father in reality-8107 and Thor was his half-brother due to
sharing the same biological father but different mothers. I feel like
the intention of the cartoon was to reflect -616 by having Odin be
Loki's adopted father and Thor, Loki's adopted brother, with Loki only
referring to Odin as "father" in the sense that, say, a stepson might
refer to his stepfather as "father" if the stepfather had raised him.
Then again, Thor was never Loki's actual half-brother in reality-616 so
again, perhaps in reality-8107, unlike reality-616, Thor and Loki DID
share a biological parent in Odin. If he is the biological son of Odin
then reality-8107 Loki's real name might be "Loki Odinson." --Proto-Man

Earth-8107's Loki has no known connections to:
Eric the Viking
A Viking, Eric had one of the Twins of the Gods gems embedded in the front bow of his ship. Via unrevealed circumstances, he had gotten lost in the North Sea and had become entombed in ice. Revived in the present day, Eric first thought he was in Valhalla but Loki (disguised as his heroic half-brother Thor) told him the afterlife would be denied him unless he destroyed all modern cities. Eric agreed to do "Thor"'s biding and accepted a magic sword to help him.
He stood by as "Thor" banished Spider-Man and Firestar. When "Thor" enchanted his boat, Eric steered it to New York City and while "Thor" spoke of conquering, Eric used his magic sword to fire bolts of force and fire against the city. When Iceman arrived and attacked, Eric mistook him for an Ice Demon and fired force bolts against him. Eric was so caught up in his fight that he failed to see the real Thor's return or Loki's ultimate defeat. Without Loki, the enchantments faded and Eric's ship dropped from the sky. Only a quick ice sled created by Iceman saved both Eric and his ship.
At the break of day, Eric dropped to his knees and begged for forgiveness, which was accepted. When the real Thor departed, he took Eric and his ship with him to Asgard.
