Kang the Conqueror

Kang is a would-be ruler of the Earth who originates from the 4th millenium.


REAL NAME: Undetermined


Kang claims to come from the 31st century, and while his story cannot be verified, the technology he carries with him is significantly more advanced than that of modern Earth. Kang wears a suit of armor, and has previously been equipped with energy weapons and a force-field generator which was impervious even to Nu’s attacks. Kang travels through time by means of a large ship, called his “time ship.” When not wearing armor, Kang appears to be a normal human.

Kang has not demonstrated any skill in hand-to-hand combat, but he is proficient in using energy weapons. He escaped from the Big House by re-configuring 21st Century technology, although if he managed to travel in time or just teleport away was not determined.


Kang the Conqueror first encountered the Avengers when he arrived, apparently from the future, with the intent of conquering the Earth. The heroes made it clear that they would oppose his bid for domination, and he used his technology to generate androids, each a version of one of the Avengers. Kang claimed these were “future versions” of themselves, and the androids demonstrated terrible power. The Avengers were eventually victorious, however, and Kang was stripped of his technology and imprisoned.

During the massive break-out at the Big House, Kang managed to kill the pilot of the Crimson Dynamo armor, and then re-configure the technology in the suit to allow him to vanish. He has not made his presence known to modern Earth since that time.
