The early days of the Avengers saw the supergroup facing off against space phantoms, masters of evil, lava men, and even the Hulk! However, the first really impressive threat came from the future when Kang the Conqueror arrived from the 40th Century. He had already taken over the Earth but had grown bored with his kingdom as there were no challengers worthy of his mettle. Browsing the historical database, he saw footage of the Avengers and identified them as a possible contender. Kang’s arrival in the 20th Century proved his biggest mistake as he found the Avengers impossible to defeat and also created a divergent timeline.
Time travel stories in comics are common, but the tale of Kang the Conqueror ranks amongst the best of them. In the latest Avengers microsode ‘Lo, There Shall Come a Conqueror!’ viewers are introduced to the complex domination plan of all time from Kang and the threat posed by the Avengers that challenges all that he has worked for.
