IN UNIVERSAL AND MULTIVERSAL ANOMALIES
WHAT IS MARVEL’S SECRET WARS?
Triumphantly, Kevin Feige has revealed Phase 4-6 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Incredibly, it is leading to the most important Marvel event to date: Secret Wars. Originally, the impetus for the comic was to create a new line-up of playsets for the Mattel toy line. In 1984, the Secret Wars crossover event involved a cosmic entity named the Beyonder.
In 2015, the Secret Wars sequel has been one of the most popular Marvel events to date. The premise which inspires Phase 4-6 is based on incursion events that threaten the Marvel multiverse. Let’s detail how two important series and a movie in the MCU may influence Avengers: The Kang Dynasty.
LOKI INTRODUCED KANG AS HE WHO REMAINS
At the end of Avengers: Endgame, Loki finds himself in review by the Time Variance Authority. During pruning, they review his life such as the events leading to his mother’s death and Ragnarok. After embarking on missions through the timeline, they realize Time Variants are causing an impending multiversal war. Now, Loki, Mobius and an unexpected flame must stop the apocalypse.
On the hunt for the renegade Time Variant, the TVA identifies a Loki Variant that has been sabotaging the Minutemen across the Timeline. In 2050 Alabama, the TVA and Loki locate the Variant, who is a female Loki. Eventually, she identifies herself as Sylvie Laufeydottir.
Nathaniel Richards is in fact the creator of the Time Variance Authority. In fact, the agents of the TVA are themselves animatronics captured throughout the Timeline. Originally, he had created the TVA in order to prevent a multiversal war. When Loki and Sylvie discover him, they are given the ultimatum to kill him and unleash the variants or take over in his place.
WHAT IF…? UNLEASHES THE TIME VARIANT KANG THE CONQUEROR
In the multiverse, the Watcher observes from the Nexus of All Realities and narrates its evolution but his race and he have sworn to never interfere. With the death of He Who Remains, the time variant Kang The Conqueror has been unleashed on the multiverse. As alternate timelines form, Watcher must recruit a new Guardians of the Multiverse to stop the threat.
The premise of What If…? is what would happen if Peggy Carter instead of Steve Rogers had become Captain America. When Rogers’ experiment fails, Peggy Carter takes the Super Soldier serum and becomes Captain Carter.
In an alternate timelines, Christine Palmer dies in a car accident. In order to change the past, Doctor Strange uses the Eye of Agamotto and turns to dark magic. He becomes Doctor Supreme.
On an alternate Earth, a young Thor grows up without his half-brother Loki. Also, he never learns to be a hero and organizes rowdy parties across the cosmos. When partying on Earth, he is intercepted by Captain Marvel. A rumble follows.
MULTIVERSE OF MADNESS BEGINS THE MULTIVERSAL WAR
In Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, the Multiversal war begins. In order to stop the events from Spider-Man: No Way Home, Doctor Strange must travel the Marvel multiverse, protect America Chavez and prevent the incursions from parallel universes.
At the beginning of the movie, America Chavez and an alternate Doctor Strange, perhaps Doctor Supreme, are being hunted by a monster. When she arrives in the prime universe, she tells Doctor Strange and Wong that the monster is hunting her because of her powers of dimensional travel across the Marvel multiverse.
Really, Scarlet Witch is the villain in the movie. At the end of WandaVision, she turns to Chaos Magic. In fact, she discovers America Chavez and sends the monster after her across the multiverse in order to steal her multiversal powers. And she intends to use the powers to travel to the dimension where her two children are being held captive.
