Disney+'s Loki introduced several memorable characters to The MCU, including the Time Variance Authority's (TVA) animated mascot, Miss Minutes.
Initially serving as a narrator/exposition source upon the God of Mischief's arrival to The TVA, the seemingly affable holo-clock was shown to have a more sinister side towards the end of the season when it was revealed that was actually be in league with He Who Remains and may have been acting as his eyes and ears all along.
Now, some alternate character designs for Miss Minutes have found their way online thanks to the new Marvel's Loki: The Art of the Series book (via @SolvetuneWorld).
As you'll see below, some pretty out-there looks were considered for the character before they settled on a classic clock-face design.
In the Loki season finale, Miss Minutes left The TVA with Judge Renslayer, promising to reveal more about the history of the Time Keepers and the Kang Variant known as He Who Remains. Tara Strong has already confirmed that she will return to voice the character for season 2.
Director Kate Herron will not be returning to helm the second season. Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead will co-direct a majority of the episodes in her stead, with Eric Martin, who penned "The Nexus Event" and "For All Time. Always" episodes, taking over from Michael Waldron as Head Writer.
The season finale concluded with Sylvie (Sophia Di Martino) following through on her plan to kill "He Who Remains" (Jonathan Majors), splintering the Sacred Timeline and causing the rebirth of The Multiverse in the process. We then saw the God of Mischief (Tom Hiddleston) arrive at what he believed to be the familiar surroundings of The TVA, only to discover that he'd actually entered a reality ruled over by another Kang Variant.
