Marvel Studios has the first season of Loki ended with a spectacular ending in episode 6 and far-reaching episodes for the entire MCU. What exactly happened and why all of this could have such an important meaning for the further phases of the Marvel universe, you will learn in our message.
Spoiler warning! Don’t read on if you haven’t seen the season finale yet.
Arrived at the end of time and space, Loki and Sylvie meet Nathaniel Richards aka Kang, who has not yet been called that in the series. The 31st century scientist created the TVA to protect the real timeline from its bellicose variants. Some other versions of the character played by Jonathan Majors cause chaos and destruction in the universe as Kang the Conqueror. Now Loki and Sylvie are supposed to take over the TVA and thus control the real timeline – an offer from Kang who, compared to his variants, does not want to be a power-obsessed ruler.
Sylvie decides differently and transports Loki back to the TVA with a time portal before she then kills the scientist. The real timeline is now unprotected and is divided into countless parallel worlds. At least now, the multiverse has arrived in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. We see the first effects when Loki arrives at the TVA. Not only were the statues of the time keepers replaced by Kang the Conqueror, Mobius suddenly no longer recognizes Loki. Either Sylvie’s action changed the whole story and the plot of season 1 is more or less meaningless – or Loki is now on a completely different timeline.
Will Kang become the new Thanos in the MCU?
One can call the variants of Kang the next super villain of the Marvel Universe. As the ruler of space and time, Kang is also much more frightening than the danger that Thanos posed. We already knew about Kang before Loki. Jonathan Majors was actually supposed to take on the role in Ant-Man 3. The surprise appearance in the season finale makes it clear that Kang is now an important topic in the MCU. From now on, fans will meet different variants of Nathanial Richards, which can be friendly or even completely crazy. Maybe we’ll see Loki, Sylvie and Kang again in Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness in March 2022.
