Loki Laufeyson, Marvel’s version of the Norse god, is one of the most enigmatic figures in comics. Although his first appearance was in Timely Comics’ Venus #6 in 1949, the true origins of the trickster lie in Journey Into Mystery #85 in 1962. This Loki was written into existence by Stan Lee, along with his brother, Larry Lieber, and drawn by Jack Kirby. Introduced as a foil for Thor, Loki would evolve into one of the greatest villains in Marvel Comics history – not to mention in the MCU.
Although we all have a propensity for romanticizing years past, few of us would ever choose to revisit high school, even if somehow afforded the opportunity. To be young again would be one thing – but to be a teenager? Most of us remember that particular period of time as being awkward, painful, and often unnecessarily cruel. Few of us have fond memories of our high school years. Can you even fully trust the rare person who speaks with joy of their high school years?
The Marvel Cinematic Universe launched Phase One in 2008 with Iron Man and that one movie managed to alter the entire landscape of film. From there, Marvel slowly built its universe from the ground up, introducing its heroes to the general population. What began as unsteady footing eventually became solid ground as Marvel Studios realized that as long as it made a good movie, even the more obscure characters could become household names.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
