Fan Art for the Ant-Man: Quantumania Comic Cover Launches the MCU’s Kang Dynasty
In an incredible new throwback, comic-style Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania fan art, the Kang Dynasty begins. Jonathan Majors will make his first appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe since Loki, in which he played the Kang variation, He Who Remains. When Paul Rudd’s Ant-Man and his family to dragged into the Quantum Realm, they will battle the final adversary of the Multiverse Saga, Kang the Conqueror. The recently released final trailer depicts Kang the Conqueror and the new villain, M.O.D.O.K., as residing in this hidden dimension.
Jacob Crump’s incredible new fan art reimagines parts from the teaser, notably Kang’s devastating energy blast, in the shape of a vintage comic cover.
The caption “He can rewrite existence… and break timelines” parallels Janet Van Dyne’s warning to Ant-Man, who appears familiar with Kang the Conqueror. The bottom tagline suggests “the birth of a new dynasty,” implying that Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania might lead into Avengers: The Kang Dynasty.
Kang’s Ability to Surpass Thanos in the MCU
Kang the Conqueror is widely expected to be the MCU’s greatest threat since Thanos. The Infinity Saga pitted the Avengers against the Mad Titan, who sought the Infinity Stones to remove half of the universe’s population to prevent congestion and exhaustion of resources, which he did in Avengers: Infinity War. Avengers: Endgame created the conclusion of the Infinity Saga. Now that the multiverse has to be release due to He Who Remains’ death in Loki’s season 1 finale, more than just the universe is at stake; Kang the Conqueror is determine to fight for control of every universe.
His unwavering belief distinguish Thanos’ persona that he was doing the right thing. Even though he ultimately lost, Thanos’ snap triggered the five-year absence of half of the universe’s population, resulting in a tidal wave of implications seen throughout Phase Four, including The Falcon & the Winter Soldier, where some believed Thanos was correct. According to Ant-Man director Peyton Reed, Kang the Conqueror is a skilled strategist with a desire for war; thus, whereas Thanos’ philosophy makes him a multifaceted adversary, Kang is more likely to be absolutely ruthless, egotistical, and brutal in his intentions.
However, He Who Remains attempted to prevent the more vicious Kang forms from controlling timelines, so there may be some nice Kang variants among the bad.
Kang has a significant advantage against Thanos in terms of multiple appearances. His campaign will not finish with Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania and with rumored cameos in Loki season 2. In at least one other production before Avengers: The Kang Dynasty, Kang the Conqueror will have plenty more opportunity to flesh out his character and reveal his reasons. Given this, it’s difficult to envision him being defeated in his upcoming clash with Ant-Man, especially since he’s already confirme to return.
The MCU has the opportunity to debut Kang with a bang, and given that Scott Lang expected to die in his threequel, there is no better way to establish him as the most dangerous menace yet than by killing off one of the most adored Avengers in his first appearance.
