Loki's Arrival

When Thor and Loki came to Earth in order to find their father, Odin, Doctor Strange sensed Loki's presence and summoned a portal which sent him to a dimension where he would fall non-stop.

  • Wormholes created by either the Bifrost or other means like the Monolith or the Tesseract share a lot of functions with some of the inter-dimensional gates listed here. The difference is that a wormhole can only create a "short-cut" between places inside the universe and not to other dimensions.
  • Inter-dimensional travel is also possible through other means beside portals. For instance, Ant-Man was able to travel to another dimension without using a portal; he shrunk until he caught a glimpse of the Quantum Realm. The Spirit of Vengeance is also capable of travelling between dimensions without the need for a portal.
