Up until, ‘Avengers: Endgame’, Thanos was considered one of the most brutal villains that the Avengers have fought against. The Titan giant posed a threat over the entire Universe, as his intentions were teased in the ‘Avengers’s’ post-credit scene. After Thanos’ defeat in the events of ‘Avengers: Endgame’, the introduction of the MCU’s next baddie was inevitable, resulting in Kang the Conqueror becoming the ideal replacement as the MCU’s new saga revolved around the multiverse.
Kang is being set up as the overarching villain of the Multiverse Saga just like Thanos was for the Infinity Saga, However, Kang is far more terrifying than Thanos, but the former has his entire Council set, with each version belonging to the different multiverse. Here are three reasons why Avengers will find it extremely difficult to stand a chance against this Kang-the Conqueror.
Kang Has Multiple Variants
Is it easier to defeat the villain with a huge army, but extremely difficult when the villain himself is the army? The Avengers did fight two different versions of Thanos throughout Infinity War and Endgame and now the Avengers, but now the saviors of the world will face the entire council of Kang.
Till now the fans have been introduced to two different different insights into Kang. The fans have seen a complete story about Kang, from being banished to the Quatuam Realm to witnessing the entire council of Kang. The fans learn about his past, his goals, and his ambitions but the majority of his story elements were missing in the final Loki’s first season.
Additionally, Kang’s many variants gave several opportunities for Jonathan Majors to portray a villain that creates a totally different energy than Thanos. Majors said, “The exciting thing about getting to originate that character on the page in the MCU was sorta of creating a totally different energy than what Thanos is, which is measured and principled, almost monk-like in his evil aspirations. And obviously, He Who Remains is a much more squirrelly, chaotic, narcissistic presence. So that was a lot of fun.”
Introduction Of Kang Sets Up The Base For Multiverse Saga
Kang-the Conqueror made his first on-screen appearance the post-credits of ‘Loki’ and then in 2020, the fans finally uncovered his true intentions. Both the films were Multiverse-foucsed era of MCU which will finally pave the way to ‘Avengers: The Kang Dynasty’ which will solely be Kang-centric.
However, Kang the Conqueror has proven himself to be an even greater threat despite having been defeated in his first two appearances. But what makes Kang so terrifying is that there are an infinite number of versions of the villain each with their own ulterior movies and destructive tendencies.
Kang Has Much More Impact Than Thanos
Kang stands out from Thanos because of the scale of his impact. Wiping out half of the universe is apparently nothing when compared to the level of destruction Kang can cause.
Jeff Loveness once described him as almost this infinite Thanos, as he can do what Thanos can across every single universe, “Kang is a top-tier, A-list Avengers villain. What do you do when you feel you’re not enough against that? How do you step up to face the challenge of this generation, who is Thanos on an exponential level? He’s almost this infinite Thanos. I think we’re setting things up for a pretty dynamic story”.
