At the end of Thor, we see Thor holding onto Odin and Loki holding onto Thor. Loki lets go and falls into the wormhole.

We know he survived because he's the main villain in the Avengers.

How did he survive falling into wormhole? If he was just teleported and not killed, would he not have ended up in Jotunheim which was being destroyed?

Similar question in scifi too… – Ankit Sharma Mar 6 '13 at 6:03
I would say Odin used his powers on Loki so he would survive – user6688 Nov 10 '13 at 18:35
@olivianovak Have you any reasoning behind your comment? – PriestVallon Nov 19 '13 at 23:54

It is never said explicitly how exactly he survived, but in The Avengers it is hinted that he was saved by the Chitauri and their leader. A mysterious character by the name "The Other" tells Loki:

The Other: You question us? You question HIM? He, who put the scepter in your hand, who gave you ancient knowledge and new purpose when you were cast out, defeated?

He created the illusion of him falling just as he created the illusion of him dying in "Thor: The Dark World".

Any evidence to support this claim? – Meat Trademark Sep 23 '15 at 13:00

Gods can only be killed by another god, or banished otherwise, loki is also able to contort himself and controll the elements as well so the worm hole wouldnt have killed him just made it diffucult to come back –odin and thor are upset because they can only travel to realms using the rainbow bridge, loki basically got lost in the heavens and the wormhole made it a one way trip

What particular aspect of him being a god made him survive? – PriestVallon Feb 16 '15 at 0:50
Perhaps you should add that into your answer. – PriestVallon Feb 16 '15 at 0:57
