Kate Dickie and Liz Carr both make their Marvel Cinematic Universe debuts in the premiere of Loki season 2 as the honorable Judge Dox and Judge Gamble, respectively. Despite playing a relatively minor role in the episode, both characters hold a fascinating history in Marvel Comics.
While seemingly set up to be the more important of the pair in Loki season 2, Kate Dickie’s Judge Dox certainly has a simpler history in Marvel Comics. The character only appeared in one issue of She-Hulk Vol. 2 as The Honorable Mr. Paradox, alongside his clones that included Mr. Ouroboros, another new MCU character, played by Ke Huy Quan. Both characters were destroyed by the Retroactive Cannon at the end of the issue, leaving a relatively minor mark in the comics.
Liz Carr’s Judge Gamble is an entirely different story, however. Only appearing in 5 issues of Marvel Comics, Gamble is a former TVA agent who quit the agency following a disagreement about their methods. Stealing a time machine, Professor Gamble traveled the timeline in a shapeshifting time machine, not dissimilar to that used by the titular character in Doctor Who.
It’s not likely Liz Carr’s Judge Gamble or Kate Dickie’s Judge Dox will resemble any facet of their characters from the pages of Marvel Comics. If Ke Huy Quan’s Ouroboros teaches fans anything, it’s that Loki season 2 is playing fast and loose with comic book canon. While certainly a good thing for the story Marvel is trying to tell, it’s also a tad bit disappointing that fans won’t be seeing Carr in Gamble’s trademark purple suit.
Who else is attached to Loki season two?
