The long-anticipated premiere of "Loki" made its debut on Disney+ early Wednesday, and while viewers tuned in to watch the latest science fiction offering from Marvel, at least one of the references was based on a real-life person.

In the show centered around the God of Mischief, played by Tom Hiddleston, Loki is taken through a vision quest by Mobius M. Mobius, played by Owen Wilson. While looking at Loki's past, Mobius brings up one of his favorite Loki encounters.

In a replay of the vision, Loki is wearing a business suit and sitting on an airplane headed toward Seattle. Loki gives the flight attendant a note, and when she walks away, he tells her she should probably read it and says he has a bomb. It then cuts to a scene where he jumps off the plane and gets sucked back to Asgard.

When the vision ends, Mobius says, "I can't believe you were D.B. Cooper!" to which Loki replies that he did it because he lost a bet to Thor. While it seems like just another time Loki was up to no good, that scene is based on a true story, and one of the biggest unsolved mysteries in the United States.

Who was D.B. Cooper?

The story begins on Nov. 24, 1971, when a man calling himself Dan Cooper bought a one way ticket to Seattle from Portland, Oregon. The FBI described him as "a quiet man who appeared to be in his mid-40s, wearing a business suit with a black tie and white shirt."

When the flight was midair, he handed a note to a flight attendant and told her he had a bomb before showing it to her. She then took a note to the plane's captain that demanded four parachutes and $200,000 in twenty-dollar bills.

The plane then landed in Seattle where the hijacker let all the passengers free in exchange for the money and parachutes. With some crew members still on board, the flight took off again, headed toward Mexico City.

What happens next is where the story gets even more mysterious. It's not known exactly where, but before the flight reached Reno, Nevada around 8 p.m., Cooper jumped out of the plane with the parachute and money in hand. The plane eventually landed safely in Reno.

The FBI opened an investigation into the incident and still not much is known as to who Cooper was. There is no report on whether he made a safe landing or died, nor any information as to where he may be.

Over 800 people were deemed as suspects, with one man being the lead suspect due to a similar hijacking five months later. However, that man didn't match the physical descriptions the flight crew gave of Cooper.

The FBI suggests that Cooper may have died before landing due to his parachute being unable to steer. It was also confirmed that a young boy found a package of twenty-dollar bills near Vancouver, Washington in 1980, that were the same bills given to Cooper. 

With no hard leads, the FBI closed the case in 2016 and all evidence has been preserved at the FBI Headquarters in Washington, D.C.

The case is dubbed as "one of the great unsolved mysteries in FBI history," and if the first episode is any indication, Loki may be the reason behind more of the most mysterious events in history.

"Captain America: The First Avenger" (2011): A top-notch World War II origin story for Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) comes earliest in the timeline, introduces the heart and soul of the MCU, and flings our hero into modern day to meet Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson).

"Iron Man" (2008): Now’s the time for the other important origin, of genius playboy billionaire Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) and his journey toward being a tin man with a heart. This is also a totally fine place to start – since it’s the first movie – but it’s cool to know a little more about Fury’s initiative when he arrives to recruit Stark.

"The Incredible Hulk" (2008): True, Mark Ruffalo is a WAY better Bruce Banner than Edward Norton, but it’s still helpful to watch this chapter to figure out how the Hulk came to be with the whole gamma radiation thing. For those who want a speedier experience, it’s totally skippable.

"Thor: The Dark World" (2013): It’s a forgettable movie, but The Aether, one of the Infinity Stones, possesses Thor’s girlfriend Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) and gets transported to outer space oddball The Collector (Benicio del Toro). His appearance sets up …

"Guardians of the Galaxy" (2014): Here’s where we finally get an explanation of the all-powerful Infinity Stones and their appeal for Thanos. More entertaining, though, are the talking tree and raccoon best friends and rogue-ish Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) trying to explain “Footloose” to space assassin Gamora (Zoe Saldana).

"Spider-Man: Homecoming" (2017): “Homecoming” is the MCU’s version of a teen movie, as Holland’s Peter Parker tries to figure out a balance between being a kid and a hero. The crazy-smart rookie also has to deal with the Vulture (Michael Keaton), a criminal salvager using alien tech for various misdeeds.

"Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" (2017): The sequel reveals that Star-Lord’s dad Ego (Kurt Russell) is a god-like Celestial with designs on universal consumption. Speaking of parents, Gamora’s sister Nebula (Karen Gillan) makes it clear she wants to off their bad dad, Thanos. (Yes, don’t forget about him.)

"Avengers: Endgame" (2019): A desperate attempt to set things right ends badly, and five years later, the remaining Avengers travel through time and space to collect the Infinity Stones before Thanos can nab them. The result is a thrilling climax filled with huge action and emotional sacrifice.
