"Not every version of me was so... so pure of heart. To some of us, new worlds meant only one thing; new lands to be conquered."
He Who Remains to Loki and Sylvie Laufeydottir[src]

Nathaniel Richards is one of the hostile variants of his original self, dubbed Kang the Conqueror due to his goals to conquer as many of the alternate universes as he could during the Multiversal War. He was able to return after He Who Remains' death and had become the new ruler of the Time Variance Authority.


Multiversal War

Defeated by He Who Remains

Kang was formed as a variant of Nathaniel Richards, otherwise known as He Who Remains. Kang eventually found the existence of the Multiverse and met up with all his other variants. However, instead of looking for peace, Kang along with other villainous variants wanted to conquer the other universes, starting the first Multiversal War in the process. Kang and the other variants were eventually stopped by He Who Remains, who weaponized a creature named Alioth to end the war. He Who Remains then created the Time Variance Authority and the Time-Keepers to secure the "Sacred Timeline" and prevent Kang and the other variants from returning.[2]

He Who Remains' Demise

In the wake of He Who Remains being murdered by Sylvie Laufeydottir, Kang was able to return, and took complete control of the Multiverse. He also became the new ruler of the Time Variance Authority, erecting a statue of himself in the Headquarters, and changed it to fit his liking. As Loki returned from the Citadel at the End of Time to warn the TVA about Kang, he found and looked upon a statue of Kang, discovering that he had already been able to take over.[2]


"If you think I'm evil, well, just wait till you meet my Variants."
He Who Remains to Loki and Sylvie Laufeydottir[src]

According to He Who Remains, Kang is ruthless and power hungry, as he saw the Multiverse as a place waiting to be conquered.[2]
