Loki Finale Presents Kang the Conqueror: Here’s What We Know About Him
The master of Time and Space
The finale of Loki Season 1 (Yes, season 2 is confirmed) was not what we expected it to be. It was not about Loki after all. Instead, it was about Sylvie’s revenge and the introduction of another villain of the MCU, Kang the Conqueror. Here is what we know about this character. (Warning- Loki Spoilers ahead)
Loki’s finale episode began with Loki and Sylvie entering a huge castle and meeting Miss Minutes, who is working for Kang, and offering them a deal. Obviously, they refuse and meet Kang. Most of the episode focused on Kang telling them that he is the good variant of Kang the Conqueror, and there are many bad variants out there. Hence, they need to protect the timeline from branching out. He even offers Loki and Sylvie to take up his job, but Sylvie kills him and starts the madness of the multiverse and exposes the world to the bad variants of Kang.
Was Loki About Loki?
After seeing the long episode about Kang The Conqueror, you might wonder whether Loki was about Loki or just a quest to find Kang and know more about him. It is apparent that Loki was not about Loki at all. He has turned out to be a changed man who is not power-hungry and mischievous.
The appearance of Kang the Conqueror also clarifies that he might be the reason for superheroes assembling again sometime in the future, just as Thanos was.
Who is Kang the Conqueror?
In the comics, Kang the Conqueror is a warlord who wants to rule the multiverse by using future technologies and time travel. He is also connected with Fantastic Four, and it might present the opportunity to add that franchise to the MCU in the future. In the comics, Kang became evil after he stranded himself in a distant century with extremely basic scientific knowledge and became a maniacal ruler. He then got addicted to power and travelled through time to claim more and more worlds.
Though Kang the Conqueror might have the same thirst for power as the Mad Titan Thanos, he is probably more evil as he does not want to create a sustainable world as Thanos did. However, Kang is not all evil as one of the good Kangs is Nate Richards, a teenager who later becomes an Avenger, Iron Lad.
