Loki’s army

For months, we’ve been trying to decode just who this alien army that Loki summon in the upcoming Avengers are. So, who are they? They’re not Skrulls. They’re not Atlantians. I guess they could still be the race that Beta Ray Bill is, whatever they’re called. Not that you can tell from this latest clue courtesy of Art Asylum and Marvel Select action figures:

The weird arms and torso kind of made me think of something created by J.J. Abrams for one of his movies, but what say you guys? Can anyone help out a brother with an I.D.?

Thanks to the peeps over at the SuperHeroHype Forums, we have some kickass .gifs of the so-called aliens from the TV spot for The Avengers.

What we do know (or think we know) is that these guys are part of Loki’s Army. What else do you think you know?

I hope there are some references to these guys in the comics and that they weren’t just randomly created for the movies. That’d be pretty bullshit.

In any case, we’ll find out on May 4.
