The One Thing Kang Needs to Become Marvel‘s Best Villain
Next month’s Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania will officially introduced Kang the Conqueror as the next big Marvel baddie as the company moves into Phase 5 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. And after the teases for the character we’ve gotten in Loki — where his “variant” turned out to be the power behind the Time Variance Authority — we’re very excited to see how Marvel brings this classic villain to the MCU. But based on what we’ve seen and know so far, we’re also a little nervous.
In our latest Marvel video, we look at what Marvel needs to do to make sure Kang joins the ranks of characters like Thanos or Loki and avoids joining the ranks of the worst Marvel villains ever. We go through Kang’s Marvel Comics’ history, and his motivations, and find all the elements we hope Marvel keeps in bringing him to the screen. Kang can be a classic character — or a little confusing, depending on how he’s used. Watch the video below to see what we mean:
