Who is Kang The Conqueror
today I am going to tell you the whole story of Kang. There won’t be any bits that Kang was seen here or there, Here the whole story would be connected, Which will blow your mind.
The story that I am going to tell today, Is the 5 issue series of Kang the Conqueror in 2021. This is the proper story of Kang. Before this, his pharaoh version, Warlord version, And hero version has been seen in parts at different times. But one thing is clear that he does not value time. But what about destiny, Destiny is a very complex thing for Kang. Changing is the only goal of Kang. Whereas conquering the whole multiverse is easy for him, Conquering himself is difficult.
Nathaniel Richards at age 18 in the 31st century was annoyed by bullying and was bored in his free time. Because there was nothing to do, or better there was nothing to conquer. Time has stopped in this advanced future. That’s why Nathaniel set off and after two years of searching, he found Doom’s library. And he was the only heir to this. And there he faced a robot of Doom. But then Kang defeated the robot and sent the robot to the 20th century. Then Kang upon being asked by Nathaniel says he has been known by many names but in the end, he was called Kang.
It was you in the beginning and I am giving you a chance to get hold of the mysteries of the cosmos. And become what I am now. The time when Nathaniel was annoyed by his timeline, he had no reason to deny this offer. Then Kang takes Nathaniel 65 million years back. One year before the Cretaceous-Paleogene extinction. That means a year before a meteor falls on Earth and the extinction of dinosaurs. Here Nathaniel had one year to become Kang.
Then Kang trains him and shows other Kang’s stories. Then Nathaniel asks him if he goes into the past and changes something then it will create a paradox. But Kang taught him that paradoxes are not our problems but the weapons are. And alongside these weapons, he taught him to use many other weapons. And then Kang said that no matter how good a plan is, it will make you weak. Depending on specific things to happen is an invitation to danger. Kang should know how to win in chaos and disorder. Kang taught him everything and also revealed his weakness. Ravenna.
After this, he told him not to love anyone in any timeline. Then only you can become a conqueror. Nathaniel understood this but in his next big fight, he found Adi. Adi takes Nathaniel to their base and shows him their elder. That elder putting a mark on his eyes tells him, the way he is headed he will find both glory and pain. After singing and dancing with that tribe, Nathaniel comes back. And shares his experience with Kang. But Kang tells him to get out of this innocent facade. But Nathaniel talks about saving those people from the meteor for love.
After this Kang slaps Nathaniel hard on his face and takes him to the tribe. And in front of his eyes destroys the base and kills the people. And at the end of his year, Nathaniel picks up Kang’s armor, Changes it a bit to his fitting, and leaves dinosaurs and Kang to die with the impact of the meteor. But because of the changes he made in the suit, he did not reach when he wanted to. But he reaches his variant Rama-Tut’s empire. Then Rama-Tut’s soldiers attack him and Moon Knight saves him. Moon Knight takes him to Khonshu’s temple where she tells him her real name: Ravonna. Nathaniel then remembers Kang’s words that never love anyone.
But Kang’s words don’t affect him much. Thinking this he becomes Iron Lad, a hero who helps Moon Knight to attack Rama-Tut’s empire. Then that happens for which Kang had forbidden him. Then Rama-Tut’s people bring Nathaniel and Ravonna the Moon Knight in front of Rama-Tut. Rama-Tut uses an ultra diode ray on Ravonna causing her to lose control over herself. And she becomes a slave of Rama-Tut. Watching this wearing his Iron Lad suit, Nathaniel says stop this Nathaniel. Rama-Tut understands that the one standing in front of him is his variant. Who doesn’t have his memories which means even if he kills him he won’t have a problem. Nathaniel says to him this is just the beginning, whatever you do think carefully. Then Rama-Tut instead of killing him, makes him a slave.
Then on Rama-Tut’s order, Nathaniel starts a war against an Egyptian living god En Sabah Nur as Scarlet Centurion. During this he comes across a worthy opponent, the pain given by his opponent frees him from Rama-Tut’s enslavement. Then Nathaniel sets off to seek revenge on Rama-Tut. But during that time there was a fight breaking out between the Fantastic 4 who came back in time versus Rama-Tut. Rama-Tut flees from there. Then Nathaniel searches for Ravonna and finds out that Ravonna is no longer alive. But Kang is alive in the 20th century.
Then Nathaniel goes to En Sabah Nur aka Apocalypse So that he can take revenge on Kang. Apocalypse keeps Nathaniel’s body safe in a sarcophagus for 26964 years. Then Nathaniel travels through time. After being alive for 26964 years in a sarcophagus he finally wakes up in the 20th century. When Avengers were fighting Kang. Then in his armor sneaks into Kang’s ship, where Kang was planning to flee from Avengers. Then Nathaniel comes in front of Kang as Ravonna’s avenger with his weapon, He was about to finish him, and between them comes Doom. Then Doom starts to attack both Nathaniel and Kang. Kang says whatever is happening here, neither I know, nor Nathaniel.
This means whatever happens here, the future is Kang. Doom was beating them badly and Nathaniel says to Kang, they have to beat Doom together. So that they can rewrite the future on which Kang agrees and they both together defeat Kang. After the dust settles, Nathaniel betrays Kang and after keeping his final words on the table he takes his revenge. To make things better he goes back in time as Rama-Tut, He does everything that Rama-Tut did except enslaving Ravonna. Then the same happened again, Fantastic 4 came, and they defeat Rama-Tut. And Rama-Tut or Nathaniel fled. And reached a thousand years later of his birth. A future filled with wars.

He was surprised because of what he saw. He saw Ravonna. Ravonna was shocked to see that Nathaniel knew her name, but still, she tells him that from Earth to space everything has rotten. There is no place to call safe. Then they leave the place and kill the wasteland savages one by one. They fight endlessly and Ravonna tells him she remembers a crater. She doesn’t have parents. She came from space and Earth could not consume her.
The world is a shadow for her and none can defeat her. There is only conquest left. After they kill some more savages, Nathaniel tells her that he loves her. Upon which Ravonna smashes him on the ground and tells him, you understand our tech better than us. You know everything about history, and with all those powers you come to claim me. And I am not what you think. I don’t belong to you. I only belong to myself. Saying this Ravonna leaves.
Then Nathaniel gets up and chooses conquest. And then he sets off to conquest with his cruel savage army. He was tired of defeat. He fights many wars, wins many, and loses many but now he is coming to his actual form. Then during his conquest, he reaches a neuro-kinetic armory. The heart of a time-ship. He starts it and the sound it makes is “Kang, Kang, Kang”. Then Nathaniel becomes Kang and he was out to conquer everything. With his time-ship he defeats many kings from the past, Gets his hold on Cosmonian Monarch, Creates huge war machines, He meets Immortus at the end of time who was once Kang, and he still loses. There was no challenge for him, only conquest.
Then he comes 99 years after his time. He had conquered everything and became Kang the Conqueror. Then there comes the last free ruler princess of Earth: Ravonna. Kang was amazed. He could not believe how could this happen. It’s been 100 years, how is she alive? Kang’s commander asks him if they should start the attack, to which Kang says no, and retreats. Kang’s people were shocked. They needed more conquest. But Kang was shocked himself, the same name and same eye colored woman is appearing before him.
At that point, Kang chooses love and leaves to do something good. He stands with heroes and becomes one. His general makes an army by himself after leaving Kang’s side. But Ravonna sees Kang’s truthfulness, and Kang wins. But before Kang gets his love, Kang’s general Baltag kills Ravonna. Kang sees his past self with Nathaniel while holding Ravonna’s body. But he won’t admit defeat.
He preserved her body and woke her up to save his final conquest. Then he goes to the end of time and creates Chronopolis. And then he binds Ravonna Renslayer to time. Infinite Ravonna in infinite timelines meaning he has infinite chances to save her. The plan was genius, but whenever he came close to Ravonna she used to get farther away. Sometimes plague, unknowingly, She died earlier sometime and sometimes later. Like in years 4000, 2001, Or 4998, 31248, Or 2920. But in 7634, Ravonna comes to fight him.
Kang can’t understand why it’s happening. He tries to explain to Ravonna that by writing her name in time he saved her life. Which Ravonna says he should not have done. Losing all choices Kang attacks Ravonna. Ravonna smiles and tells him that she can’t be free. But someone else will and even if I can’t keep them free from the time I will keep them free from you. While dying Ravonna destroys Chronopolis. While falling Kang realizes Kang was not playing with time but the time was playing with him. But he knew his story was still more because he had seen his future self Immortus. Which meant something could still happen.
Then he goes back to young Nathaniel Richards. To train him and make him like the way he is. But again Nathaniel finds that base, and Kang goes to destroy it. And when he kills the elder he sees the elder is none other than Ravonna. Then the young Nathaniel plans to betray Kang. But it was not Nathaniel’s decision. It was Kang’s. Then after Nathaniel left, Kang wears his Immortus suit. And rises above time and says “Never love”.
This story told many things about Kang, Kang’s future, and the time loop. We saw Ravonna Renslayer in the MCU Loki series. She did not know why He Who Remains kept her there. But she is searching for it. On the other hand, He Who Remains has accepted his fate. And kept Ravonna only close as he can afford to. Because he has accepted his destiny he is calm. Because he knows what will happen, he knows what happened and he decided to things go as is. Looking at Quantumania’s Kang, he is restless, to change his destiny just like Nathaniel.
Talking about good and evil, the sentient who is living in the facade of controlling time, will treat people like humans see ants. If a human has to destroy an ant farm, it won’t take too long. Nor even the ants know what happened to them. But the bad thing is the restlessness of humans. The thing to look forward to is how many farms will Kang destroy to change his destiny.
