Now that the Infinity Saga has ended, and the Multiverse Saga appears to be wrapping up, we're approaching the time for our next big supervillain in Avengers: Secret Wars and Avengers: Kang Dynasty. As the name of this latest Avengers film conveniently mentions, we know that it will focus on the threat posed by the fearsome Kang the Conqueror.

Kang the Conqueror is just one of his many names, as he uses his power over the realm of time travel to transform the universe into a pattern that suits him. He is known for his villainous efforts against the Avengers throughout Marvel comics history. He is one of the most formidable villains the Avengers will face, with some considering him even more powerful than the fearsome Thanos.

Kang himself has no special powers or training to speak of, unlike most Avengers who count themselves among billionaires, gods, and those with exceptional skills and superpowers. He is, however, a genius, and thanks to his genius, he found a way to control time travel, and avoid all the nasty side effects that Tony Stark warned us about in Avengers: End Game.

For many years, Victor Von Doom, Mr. Fantastic's nemesis from Fantastic Four, was believed to be related to Kang the Conqueror, but it was later discovered that Kang had a much more unexpected relationship with the Fantastic Four. .

Nathaniel Richards

Reed Richards, also known as Mr. Fantastic, is known as the leader of the Fantastic Four, but in the comics, it is his father, Nathaniel Richards, who is the founder of the group. Nathaniel Richards was a time-traveling superhero who was seen in many iterations throughout the comics, sometimes appearing as a villain, sometimes as a hero. Some perceptive fans have noticed that, according to the cast list for Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, the actor who plays Kang, Jonathan Majors, is named Nathaniel Richards.

Although it is doubtful whether he is the Nathaniel Richards who was Reed's father, and the founder of Fantastic Four, it is possible that, as a descendant of the Richards through time travel, Kang was named according to his father or grandfather. This means that Kang and Mr. Fantastic are directly related, but it has not been confirmed how closely or directly related the two are.

Now that the integration of the X-Men and the Fantastic Four into the MCU has been confirmed since Disney took over the intellectual property, we are impatiently waiting to know how Marvel will go about it, apart from their quick appearance in Doctor Strang in the Multiverse of Madness. With the announcement that Hugh Jackman will play Wolverine once again in the upcoming Deadpool 3, we can assume that this is how the X-Men will be reintroduced at least. Will Kang and Reed Richards' relationship be Marvel's way of reintroducing the Fantastic Four into the MCU?
