Kang the Conqueror is shown resting surrounded by the bloody trophies of the Avengers he just killed in the ghost of new Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania fan art. Paul Rudd’s Ant-Man comes face-to-face with the next Avengers-level threat from Jonathan Majors’ Kang the Conqueror in the first entry into the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Phase 5 next month. The film takes place in the Quantum Realm where Kang is trapped and also stars Evangeline Lilly, Kathryn Newton, Michelle Pfeiffer, Michael Douglas and Bill Murray. Kang will eventually take on the Avengers in Phase 6 with Avengers: Kang Dynasty.

Damn artist akitheful reinvented a recently released promotional image of Kang the Conqueror’s new costume with a dark, bloody spin.

Close-ups reveal an array of kits and armor belonging to many of the Avengers, now spattered with the blood of the heroes he presumably eliminated. Ant-Man’s helmet is on view, as well as Thor’s Stormbreaker, and even Thanos’ Infinity Gauntlet equipped with all six Infinity Stones, among others. An ominous, attacking caption teasing the many other iterations of Kang the Conqueror in the multiverse reads: “And if you think I’m bad, just wait until you meet my other variants.

Why Kang The Conqueror is a major threat to the Avengers

The Avengers have dealt with some huge threats over the course of the MCU, with Loki, Ultron and Thanos all battling the team of heroes. Thanos has proven to be by far the strongest opponent to date, even defeating the Avengers in Avengers: Infinity War after he was able to obtain all six Infinity Stones and wipe out half of the universe’s population. However, Kang the Conqueror is expected to be the most powerful being the Avengers have encountered yet. The time traveler has the ability to alter and destroy timelines, and there are a vast amount of Kang variants spread across the multiverse, most of which are intent on the complete domination of all reality.

Phase 4 of the MCU has greatly expanded the roster of heroes, introducing new characters including She-Hulk, Ms. Marvel and Shang-Chi, which could be hugely important going forward. Stronger than ever, the Avengers still face the greatest challenge of their lives when they face the time-traveling warlord in Avengers: Kang Dynasty. Having already lost to Thanos, it seems inevitable that Kang the Conqueror would prevail over the Avengers as the stronger villain. Although they used time travel through the Quantum Realm to eventually undo the Mad Titan’s victory, Kang is an experienced time traveler himself and would likely thwart any attempt by the Avengers to use it against him.

With the Multiverse Saga well underway, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania will introduce the second Kang variant seen in the MCU so far, following He Who Remains from Loki season 1. This variant was more benevolent and kept the sacred timeline in place before he was killed by Sylvie, a Loki variant, thus unleashing all the more barbaric Kang variants on the multiverse. The Avengers’ problem is that even if they are able to defeat one version of Kang, there are many others with the same goals. This makes him a huge threat, and it will take an incredible effort for the heroes to defeat Kang the Conqueror in his many forms, including the one seen in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania hits theaters February 17.
