In Loki episode 1, it is said that:

Magic powers? They're no good in the TVA, Mr. Laufeyson.

How come Loki is in human form throughout his time in the TVA, then, as he is actually (genetically) a Frost Giant?

    I know, that's why I said it's related, not a duplicate. It explains why Loki looks like a human most of the time, but doesn't explain why he still looks like a human in the TVA.

During the time of adoption, Odin changed Loki's look entirely to look more like an Asgardian rather than a Frost Giant by touching him.

Although Loki still can return back to his Frost Giant look, if he gets the freezing touch from other Frost Giants.

  • But this is magic that makes him look like this, no? And all magic is prohibited in the TVA... Commented Jan 25, 2023 at 19:56
