Loki series set to introduce Sera, Marvel's first trans character
The six-episode series will take place after the events of Avengers: Endgame
Marvel Studios is planning to introduce Sera, its first transgender character in the debut season of Loki, the upcoming Disney+ series. The role is being described as a major supporting character who will not only appear on the series but also in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the future.
Sera is an Anchorite. The Anchorites are a small group of male, wingless Angels who were kept inside a temple in Heven, the Tenth Realm. Sera was the only one of the Anchorites who identified as a woman, thus being the first and, so far, only major trans woman in Marvel comics. She also happens to be in a relationship with the character of Angela, daughter of Odin, Loki's father.
The six-episode series will take place after the events of Avengers: Endgame and explore a different version of the story, with Loki, played by Tom Hiddleston, at its centre.
Loki series, directed By Kate Herron, will premiere in 2021.
