One of the things that we saw in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania was the introduction of Kang the Conqueror as the villain that the MCU would eventually have to face. Of course, while the Kang/s that is/are set to threaten the MCU is/are different from the one we saw in Quantumania, the Conqueror was still proud enough to boast about how he has killed Thor in the past. So, did Kang kill Thor, as he said in Quantumania?

Kang did indeed kill Thor in multiple timelines and universes in the past. As a conqueror who traveled to multiple timelines and universes, he could destroy those universes and kill countless members of the Avengers, including Thor himself. That means that he killed Thor multiple times in the past.

While it might be true that Thor is the self-proclaimed strongest Avenger, it is also true that Kang is incredibly powerful and is strong enough to take on an entire army all on his own. We saw how powerful he was during the events of Quantumania, as it was clear that he was powerful enough to not only kill Thor but take on the Avengers. So, let’s look at whether or not Kang did indeed kill Thor.

Did Kang kill Thor?

Like it or not, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is Kang’s movie as it focuses more on Kang the Conqueror and what kind of a person he is. After all, this movie was supposed to be the most important MCU film since Endgame due to how it introduced Kang and the Council of Kangs. And we all know that Kang is set to become a major threat to the MCU in the upcoming Avengers: Kang Dynasty movie.

Of course, Kang the Conqueror served as the primary antagonist that the Ant-Family needed to take down in Quantumania. Equally trapped in the Quantum Realm without a way of leaving it, Kang needed one of the members of the Ant-Family to shrink his ship’s enlarged energy core, which Janet Van Dyne tried to keep away from him years ago when she was still trapped in the Quantum Realm as well. And that was the reason why Kang sent MODOK after Scott and Cassie Lang so that he could get his hands on someone with access to Pym particles.

After MODOK captured Scott and Cassie, they finally met Kang the Conqueror, who had a special task for Ant-Man. But before that, Scott boasted about how he was an Avenger and bluffed about how the Avengers were on their way to the Quantum Realm as they spoke. However, Kang called his bluff.

At that point, it had already been established by Janet that Kang the Conqueror was a man that had traveled through multiple timelines and universes and destroyed all of them. He was a monster that lived to conquer and destroy. And it was his destructive nature that got him exiled to the Quantum Realm.

So, when Scott bluffed about how the Avengers were on their way to the Quantum Realm, Kang had this to say:

“You’re an Avenger… have I killed you before? They all blur together after a while. You’re not the one with the hammer.”

Scott comedically answered that he was referring to Thor and that they were often mistaken for one another due to their similar body types. But the point is that Kang boasted about killing Thor in one of the timelines and universes he conquered. So, did Kang really kill Thor?

In a way, Kang did indeed kill Thor. But he probably wasn’t referring to the Thor we know in Universe-616 because he was still alive the last time we saw him. And Kang has been in the Quantum Realm for a very long time, which means that he couldn’t have killed the 616 version of Thor.

Of course, since Kang is capable of multiversal travel and has technology that far surpasses what anyone is capable of in the current MCU timeline, he has certainly killed a lot of Avengers in the past. That’s because the Avengers, Thor included, would have tried to stop him from exacting his will on the different worlds and timelines he visited and conquered.

As we saw in the movie, Kang had the power to defeat Thor and kill the other members of the Avengers as well. His futuristic suit is so powerful that he has no trouble defeating and overwhelming the Ant-Family and the freedom fighters. It was only when Hank Pym used his gigantic ant army and MODOK betrayed Kang that the Conqueror looked vulnerable. Still, despite his damaged suit, neither Scott nor Hope couldn’t defeat him, as they had to blow up his energy core to defeat Kang.

In that sense, Kang is so powerful that he probably wasn’t exaggerating about killing Thor and the Avengers numerous times in the different universes he conquered. And that means an entire army of Kangs should be more than a handful for the Avengers to deal with in the upcoming Kang Dynasty movie.

Chris Hemsworth’s response

Chris Hemsworth, the actor portraying Thor in the MCU, has always been known for his comedic side, as he likes joking around. And when he found out that Kang was responsible for killing Thor in the universes he visited, Hemsworth sent out a tweet in response to this.

In that regard, Hemsworth joked about how Kang “had never faced him twice,” which was his line in Infinity War when Rocket said that Thanos had already defeated him. Of course, Kang may have faced multiple versions of Thor in multiple timelines and universes. And that means he has faced and killed Thor not only once or twice but countless times already.

However, we can’t say for sure just how wide the gap is between Kang and Thor. That’s something that we will see in the upcoming Kang Dynasty movie when the Council of Kangs becomes a threat to the MCU.
