What if the device that will destroy the following major antagonist Kang the Conqueror had previously been hinted about in MCU phase 4? We should investigate this fascinating notion, so let’s return to the comics and go to 1969!
KANG THE CONQUEROR OF THE MULTIVERSE
It’s no secret that Kang the Conqueror poses a threat to the multiverse in the same way that Thanos did to the universe. The latter is able to govern space and time simultaneously. He is a strong scientist who has elevated his degree of global knowledge, much like Tony Stark. Loki’s most recent episode revealed how he had managed to rule his own realm and what the safeguard was that had kept him from visiting other universes but was now broken. All Phase 4 films to date, as well as Phase 5 films most likely, have been based on the same concepts of time, space, order, and chaos. We shall learn how to overcome Kang by considering these four important aspects.
Investigating the ancient, extremely old Marvel comics for this is intriguing. If Kang is a character that first appeared in Fantastic 4 in 1963, he swiftly establishes himself as a key figure in the Marvel tales of the era. In a huge three-act spectacle similar to the MCU at the moment, he becomes the main danger as early as 1969, with Phase 4 highlighting him, Phase 5 imposing him as a menace, and Phase 6 seeing his collapse. In the comics, Loki enters into a mad wager with the Grandmaster, a villain who has already appeared in the post-credits sequences in Thor: Ragnarok and Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2, and he uses this wager to psychologically coerce the Avengers into fighting on his behalf. In order to rig the results, it will be essential to wait for the Black Knight’s accidental arrival and to persuade our two villains to go in the future so that they may start again at a period when he won’t be present. And that’s when Kang’s problems start.
KANG: A MAGIC PROBLEM?
If Kang is a man of science, magic is his weakness since it is something he cannot predict. Kang also pulled the Ebony Blade, the Dark Knight’s blade, into his portal while time-traveling. a magical object that is also cursed and connected to Dane in the mind. After a few adventures, he will be able to use this mental connection to find Kang no matter where he is as long as the sword is in the same dimension and the same chronological period as him. Kang didn’t know how to fight the Dark Knight (who had gathered every soul from every Bane of the worlds that existed) since Kang was an unexpected component in his calculations.
It is very likely that the MCU version is different. This is, after all, a story that will be over 62 years old when Avengers: The Kang Dynasty comes out, but sources may have roots in that story. Already, phase 4 has installed three crucial elements against Kang: artefacts (with Bane and his sword in The Eternals but also Shang-Chi and his rings, the statuettes of the Egyptian gods in MoonKnight), Magic ( of chaos in particular with Doctor Strange 2, Wandavision and upcoming Agatha series) and other dimensions, with Spider-Man, Doctor Strange 2and America Chavez , the Loki series whose first Season 2 footage has leaked, and Ms. Marvel . Kang only manages to master one of these three aspects, the rest will be a playing card for the Avengers . Either way, we’ll get more details in the upcoming Ant-Man & the Wasp: Quantumania movie , which will finally show us Kang the Conqueror in action and if his modus operandi changes during the move from the comics to the MCU.
