This problem didn’t start with Johnathan Major’s legal difficulties. These problems have been brewing since Loki, but Ant-Man and the Wasp Quantumania made us think that Marvel is squandering their best villain of all time. Check out our MERCH Store Here →

#Kang #Marvel

So picture this: you have a new big bad in the MCU that has the potential to eclipse the Mad Titan Thanos.

This villain is so powerful that he’s essentially unkillable because there are infinite versions of his throughout the multiverse.

Doug: oh tell me more

This villain has an interesting motivation, and he already won and conquered the entire multiverse and ruled it as a god.

Doug: who is this amazing–are you listening to me?

No…what were you saying?

Doug: who is this amazing sound guy?

This is Kang the Conquer.

Doug [disappointed]: Oh

A villain who had the makings of the MCU’s best villain. And yet…. somewhere along the way, Kang lost all of his momentum. Somehow, the Darth Vader of the Multiverse saga was demoted to Snoke.

And this is made far more egregious after the introduction of the High Evolutionary in Guardians of the Galaxy vol 3, a villain who’s easily one of the MCU’s best.

Doug: So why Kang isn’t as good as him?

Well let me see if I can explain what went wrong with Kang, what Marvel is doing wrong, and attempt to fix this broken multiversal boy. And I think there is a way for Kang to be one of the best MCU villains. Now, next I – (on phone)

Doug: what are you doing on your phone?

Now, back to Kang. So, one thing before we start.
The Jonathan Majors real-life situation has nothing to do with the Kang problems. That stuff is very serious and still ongoing, so let’s focus only on the character the actor is portraying.

Alright, there are 4 major problems with Kang. So let’s go over each one of them, and then how Marvel can learn from these mistakes and fix Kang.

When the MCU initially introduced us to Kang, he was presented as the most powerful being we have ever seen in this franchise.

He’s a multiversal ruler who literally lives in a castle that observes time itself.

He knows it all, he has seen it all. And he manipulates time basically like a god.
He even has the tech that turns the Infinity Stones into [paper weights].

This is a very good introduction.

This Kang is He Who Remains. One of many variants of Kang.

Doug: Variants?

Those are other versions of people from other universes.

This persona explains that eons ago he won a multiversal war against all the other Kangs. He saved reality from his variants by erasing them and their timelines from existence. So this one Kang has already killed all the other Kangs.

After winning the war, he created a new separate universe called the sacred timeline. He ruled every moment in time. He literally had a script for everything that happened and will happen.

He enforced the timeline to ensure that his variants will never return to threaten the multiverse.

Doug: I miss the days when a purple guy just wanted to collect a bunch of colorful magic rocks

Yes, the multiverse worldbuilding is very ambitious compared to the Infinity Saga. At times too ambitious for its own good, to the point it becomes tediously convoluted storytelling.

During this Kang’s long exposition dump, he keeps telling Loki and Sylvie about the dangers of his variants. How they are far worse than him, and how they’re the true threat to the multiverse.

And we eventually meet one of these other personas in Ant-Man and the Wasp Quantumania.

This variant is Kang the Conqueror. That was confirmed by Marvel.

In his initial introduction, Kang appears as a truly menacing and fascinating villain.

In those conversations with Janet, we can see that this is a multi-layered character, someone who’s motivated by a misguided god complex to save reality from himself.

The scene when Kang meets Scott and Cassie, and basically force-pushes everyone – gave me some Darth Vader vibes. I really love this Kang in these two scenes.

But then, it all starts falling apart.
