Who Is Kang The Conqueror?

So, we know who plays Kang The Conqueror, but what’s the back story of the popular Marvel villain?

Nathaniel Richards, otherwise known as Kang or Kang The Conqueror, is one of the biggest villains in the world of Marvel. The character is fairly complex, as he has had various iterations over the years.

Before Kang was the mighty villain he is today, he was known as Nathaniel Richards, a 31st-century scholar who was fascinated with history and the time travel technology created by Victor von Doom. Richards eventually travels back in time to ancient Egypt and becomes Pharaoh Rama-Tut.

Rama-Tut then battles the Fantastic Four and eventually travels to the 20th century where he meets Doctor Doom. The two work together and Rama-Tut enters his second iteration as Scarlet Centurion.

After a battle with earth’s mightiest heroes, The Avengers, Scarlet Centurion attempts to return to the 31st century but arrives a thousand years past the 31st century. After discovering a war-torn earth with advanced weapons, Richards enters his third iteration of Kang The Conqueror and begins taking over planet Earth.

What Are Kang The Conqueror’s Powers?

Unlike many of The Avengers and other Heroes Kang battles, he has no superhuman abilities and is simply a genius. Kang has a deep background in history and is a master physicist who specializes in time travel.

After various trips through time, Kang has amassed quite the collection of advanced weaponry and holds advanced armor and weapons to use against The Avengers and other Heroes.

Kang The Conqueror may not have any powers or abilities, but his massive arsenal of advanced technology and extraordinary genius is what makes him a real threat.
