Every Version Of Kang In The Post-Credits Scenes. Kang and his various incarnations have made their way into the Marvel Cinematic Universe as the next major threat to the multiverse, as seen in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.
While Kang the Conqueror, played by Jonathan Majors, officially debuts in the film, his different versions from the comics also appear in the post-credit scenes. The shattering of the Sacred Timeline has allowed multiple versions of him, a time-traveling tyrant who has destroyed entire universes and trillions of lives in his multiversal domination, to enter the MCU. He was first introduced in Loki as He Who Remains.
Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania’s end-credit scenes reveal numerous variations of Kang, with four resembling variants from the original Marvel Comics.
Every Version Of Kang In The Post-Credits Scenes
Immortus, a Kang variant with blue skin, a beard, and a large hat, is depicted as the leader of the trio in the post-credits scene. He voices his concerns about the Kang variant, which was exiled to the Quantum Realm, and confirms that the heroes of Earth-616 have started affecting the multiverse. He summons various Kang variants from across the multiverse to address the situation.
In the comics, Immortus is Kang’s oldest self, ruling a realm called Limbo, which is beyond time and space. He realizes his younger self’s threat to the timeline and has collaborated with the Avengers to thwart Kang’s plans. He has also served the Time-Keepers, though the MCU has altered that relationship. As seen in Loki, He Who Remains created the Time-Keepers to run the Time Variance Authority.
The Kang variant garbed in the regalia of an Egyptian pharaoh is undoubtedly Rama-Tut. In the source material, Rama-Tut is a version of Kang who travels back in time to conquer Ancient Egypt. He is also the first Kang variant that the Fantastic Four encounters when they time-travel to the past. Rama-Tut has also crossed paths with a young En Sabah Nur, a formidable mutant who eventually becomes the primary antagonist of the X-Men, as well as the Egyptian moon god Khonshu. Moreover, a few hidden references in the MCU have helped to confirm that this particular Kang variant was hinted at in Moon Knight.
Kang Prime Or Scarlet Centurion
The third Kang present in Ant-Man and the Wasp quantumania lacks the color red but could be the Scarlet Centurion variant due to the similar head and shoulder tubes as in the comics. The Scarlet Centurion is a name, and appearance Kang adopts after being driven out of Egypt as Rama-Tut by heroes, including Apocalypse and Khonshu.
Inspired by Doctor Doom, the Scarlet Centurion wields futuristic weapons and hypnotic devices to manipulate opponents. Alternatively, the third Kang could be Kang Prime, a traditional Kang iteration who fell in love with Ravonna Renslayer in the comics. However, it needs to be clarified if the banished Kang is intended to be MCU’s Kang Prime. Kang’s relationship with Ravonna Renslayer will be explored in the MCU, but it’s unknown which Kang variant will appear.
Council of Kangs
In Quantumania’s first post-credits scene, an army of Kang variants appears in a massive arena summoned by Immortus. The sheer number and variety of Kangs make distinguishing or counting them all problematic. The stadium is surrounded by giant statues of Kang the Conqueror, suggesting the location to be either Limbo or Chronopolis, the base of Kang’s operations in the comics.
Interestingly, the final shot of the Kangs cheering is taken directly from Avengers #292, where Kang Prime is introduced to the Council of Kangs amid thunderous applause. The Council of Kangs will pose a significant threat to the Avengers in the upcoming film, Avengers: The Kang Dynasty, set to release in 2025.
Victor Timely Will encounters Loki and Agent Mobius.
Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania’s conclusion introduces a noteworthy Kang variant, Victor Timely. In the comics, Kang traveled to the 20th century under this guise, establishing the town of Timely and building a successful robotic manufacturing empire using his time-travel abilities. The MCU hints that Victor Timely will have a significant part in the forthcoming Loki season 2.
The final post-credits scene sees Loki and Agent Mobius observing as Victor showcases his futuristic technology to an audience in the early 1900s. After Sylvie, a variant of Loki wreaked havoc on the Sacred Timeline, the God of Mischief is now aware of Kang’s strength and the threat posed by his various incarnations. Therefore, Loki season 2 may take up where Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania leaves off, exploring the character of Kang in more depth.
