I was wondering if this was established during the Stan Lee/Jack Kirby era. I read a few of those Journey issues in trade a long time ago, and my memory might be wrong on this (It usually never is if it's comic,movie or written related. Am I pathetic?),but I don't recall them discussing being related or brothers. Was it ever established why Loki had such a hatred for him and Odin? In addition, did he have set power levels during The Silver Age, or did he get more powerful later on?

I've never read the mythology, but is the comic(Or cinematic.) version of Loki similar to his mythological one? From what I read, the Loki of myth was more of a trickster god, and not really all that violent or dangerous. He was more manipulative?

Thanks for the help.

I do not remember when it was first brought up in the comics but it is. They are still his offspring, at least of sorts. Some writers had different takes on that.

Loki is different and similar to the myth version. In myth he is not Thor's brother. He is more of a brother of Odin, as Odin helped him form from the entity that he was.
