Marvel Fans Hope Kang Won’t Replace An Iconic MCU Villain

May 14, 2022

Fans went crazy when Jonathan Majors debuted as kang the Conqueror in the Loki finale, with his appearance instantly fueling theories that the time-traveling tyrant was to be the MCU’s next big bad. What’s more, continued Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness Breaking reality, it’s widely believed that the next big Avengers-level event movie could be an adaptation of Secret Wars.

So the obvious conclusion is that Kang would be the main villain of an MCU version of Secret Wars. Except that idea seems to make a lot of comic book readers angrier than the Hulk. ‘Kang’ is trending on Twitter today as Marvelites let it be known that they would revolt if Marvel ever took Doctor Doom out of the equation in a Secret Wars browse.

It all started with a viral tweet from @hradesi14 that described Kang as the new Thanos. But many believe that Victor Von Doom deserves this honor.

That’s what people want.

Don’t even try to replace it, Marvel.

Doom is the real new Thanos.

There is no Secret Wars without Victor.

That is to say lightly…

There have been a lot of Secret Wars controversy online lately, as comic book readers previously gunned down fans who thought a movie of the 2015 event would lead to tons of cameos, when it’s more of a focused arc on the characters centered on Mr. Fantastic and Doctor Doom. An adaptation of the original from the 80s Secret Wars might lead to more crossovers, but Kang isn’t that bad either. So it remains to be seen what Kang’s ultimate battle will be and when and where Doom will make its MCU debut.

'Fast X' fans can finally rest easy with Scott Eastwood's return confirmed

What we do know is that the majors will return next February Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumaniawith a The Fantastic Four restart planned later in 2023.
