Kang the Conquerer was first introduced in Marvel Comics as a time-traveling warlord/scientist in 1964. However, it turned out he was also the villain Rama-Tut who had first appeared a year prior. In the MCU, he was introduced in the Loki television series on Disney+, played by Jonathan Majors.
We now have our first official look at Majors as Kang the Conquerer, who is seemingly a variant of He Who Remains, which is what Majors’ character went by on Loki. He sports a more traditional Kang look with the headpiece and robotic eyes. There’s also the movie’s team of superheroes front and center, with Ant-Man, Wasp, and Scott Lang’s (Paul Rudd) daughter, Cassie in the purple.

In the comics, Cassie eventually takes the name Stature and a place among the Young Avengers, who have slowly but surely started appearing in other MCU programs and movies. She first appeared in the Ant-Man’s first solo outing, but with the blip, jumped several years in the future and is in her teens now.
