'Loki': Kang the Conqueror and The Time Variance Authority rumored to appear in the Disney + series

If this piece of news is anything to go by, we might just be seeing Kang the Conqueror make an appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. An Illuminerdi report stated that the time-traveling villain might just show up in the upcoming Disney+ series, 'Loki'. The series will also apparently introduce the Time Variance Authority.  The villain has a detailed history in the comics. Created by Jack Kirby and Stan Lee, Kang faced off against the Avengers in the 1964 "The Avengers #8'. 

Previously, there was a Reddit theory that looked at how Harley Keener would be Kang the Conqueror. A fan fleshed out the details in full about how Harley may play a bigger role in the near future. The theory goes on to say that Harley was well on his way to becoming Iron Lad (played by Nathaniel Richards in the comics). If the series sticks to the Iron Lad comic plot, then Harley would eventually become Kang the Conqueror.

While the theory looks believable and yet can't be believed at the same time, there's proof that it could hold true. Kang's signature tool is time travel. The last person we saw who made it possible was Tony Stark and this could mean Harley (played by Ty Simpkins in 'Iron Man 3') did some research of his own and managed to crack the time travel code just like Stark. As the story goes,  Stark met Harley and developed a father-son like relationship with him in Iron Man 3.

At this stage, it is not clear why Harley would choose the path of a villain. The easiest explanations are Harley trying to go back in time and set things right by stopping the whole Thanos affair in the first place. While the theory may seem outlandish, it's something Harley may actually do. Or he's just plain mad at the Avengers for letting their colleague die in the battle against Thanos.

'Loki' will debut on Disney+ in Spring 2021.
