What does "come out on top" mean? Does it mean "be the No.1 in something" or "jut win something"?
You are correct! It actually means both. "Come out on top" does mean to be the number one in something and also means to be the winner of something. In Loki's case, Loki wants to "come out on top" by winning the war against the Avengers. Ex: He came out on top in this year's elections. Ex: She came out on top in the debate.
