That's a good question: How does Sinestro's persistence, a fundamental aspect of every major comic book villain, make him better than Loki? We're talking about a God who, at least in the movies, it took a beating from the Incredible Hulk to keep him down just long enough to subdue him, and he's still confirmed to be an antagonist in the next Thor movie.
Persistence by itself would not be enough. That's why I'd mentioned power ring stuff.
Like Loki, Sinestro has been the antagonist in a number of iterations of their heros' narratives. Sinestro wasn't like some one and done guy, and neither was Loki.
Sinestro has fought a bunch of people who've thrown him around and, like Loki and his run in with the Hulk, has lived to fight them again and often get the upper hand.
So, I guess my question is how does getting beaten up by a hero and living, which has also happened to a number of supervillains, make Loki a better villain than Sinestro?
