Kang is Coming
Kang the Conqueror is a time-traveling villain who will be appearing in the Marvel Cinematic Universe soon – and it might be sooner than you think, Marvel Blog True Believers!
For one thing, in the comics, he has a personal connection to Ravonna Renslayer (Gugu Mbatha-Raw), currently appearing every week on Loki. Could this mean that Kang will be appearing in the next two episodes of Loki? We don’t think it’s outside the realm of possibility, especially since the comic Majors is holding up is Avengers #267 by Roger Stern, John Buscema, Jim Novak, Tom Palmer, and Christie Scheele.
In Avengers #267, Kang is on a time-quest to eliminate all of his time divergent duplicates that were created each time he jumped through time. However, he must enlist the help of his former foes, The Wasp, Black Knight, and Hercules, in the hopes that they will help him destroy the duplicates of his own creation! The story is also the debut of the Council of Kangs… sound somewhat familiar already, Marvel Blog True Believers?
Furthermore, Kang is officially the villain of the upcoming Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, where he will be portrayed by Majors, so we might be introduced to the character before the supervillain takes center stage on the big screen.
To brush up on his Kang, Majors visited Golden Apple Comics in Los Angeles, California. This legendary comic shop is frequently visited by the creative teams behind your favorite MCU and Marvel Comics stories, for example, Patton Oswalt, Jordan Blum, and Melissa Fumero all appeared to promote Marvel’s M.O.D.O.K.
Boom 💥 So this is happening now at our shop @pattonoswalt just stoppped in to sign some of the new @Marvel trade paper backs for @MarvelsMODOK he wrote with @BlumJordan They are double signed while supplies last. Also, he signed some M.O.D.O.K legends toys, etc. Woot!!!! #modok pic.twitter.com/WjLrqBLzSp

Next time you plan a trip to Avengers Campus, consider driving an hour (approximately) north to check out a legendary comic shop, and potentially see some real world Avengers sightings!
And, if you can’t take a break from training with your favorite heroes, there was even a virtual reality version of Golden Apple during Wondercon 2021… and you didn’t even need to use the Darkhold to access it!
Where Is Kang?
Do you think that we’ll be getting some Kang on Disney+ before the final episode of Loki has concluded? We want to know your theories, Marvel Blog True Believers! Let us know what you think in the comment section.
