roxxon explained

Minor spoilers for Loki episode two follow.

You might have noticed their flashing neon signs throughout Loki. Specifically, the signs for Roxxcart, the big-box store where thousands of people are taking refuge from a coming hurricane and where Loki and the Time Variance Authority agents descend on a mission in episode two of the Disney+ Marvel series.

But Roxxcart and its neo-futuristic signage is more than just a chance for Loki to flex its Blade Runner influences — it’s a reference to Roxxon, a famous corporation in Marvel Comics. Could there be room for two enigmatic organizations in one show? Here’s what you need to know about Roxxon.

loki doctor who

Do you remember how the feverish speculation surrounding the next lead in the legendary science fiction series Doctor Who would always, inevitably land on Tom Hiddleston? Rallying cries of “Tom Hiddleston as the 12th Doctor!” or “Tom Hiddleston should be the 13th Doctor!” frequently circulated the internet, as did fan art that depicted the Avengers star in front of the TARDIS, that blue box in which the Doctor traveled in time and space.

Well, fans kind of got their wish with Loki, the new Marvel series on Disney+ starring Hiddleston as the God of Mischief after he gets arrested by the Time Variance Authority for “crimes against the Sacred Timeline.” A rogueish protagonist who flouts the laws of time? An intimidating organization run by cosmic figures with a penchant for high collared capes? Time travel rules that are a little wibbly-wobbly timey-wimey?

Yes, Loki is basically Marvel’s take on Doctor Who, the long-running BBC sci-fi series about an alien who goes on whimsical adventures in time and space. Loki is a little less whimsical and a lot more higher budget, but the show’s time-hopping plot certainly recalls a few episodes of Doctor Who (it even shares actors, with Gugu Mbatha-Raw having appeared in Doctor Who as Martha Jones’ sister Tish). This is especially true in this week’s episode of Loki, which calls to mind another “Volcano Day” in Doctor Who, but with a very different approach.

Josta Soda in Loki

The Time Variance Authority in the Disney+ series Loki has a weird vibe going on. Yes, it has a familiar bureaucratic feel, but it still feels a little bit off and out of this reality (which, it is). The show creators intentionally made the TVA feel this way, and used obvious and tiny touches to create its odd ambiance.

One of those small touches is Mobius’ (Owen Wilson) favorite drink: Josta soda. Josta was a real product from the ‘90s, and it had a tumultuous, short-lived life in our reality. Mobius, however, is a diehard fan — could his predilection for it tells us something about him? Read on for the true history of Josta, as well as a speculative take on why Mobius likes it so much.
