How Powerful Is Kang the Conqueror Compared to Other MCU Villans?


Over the years, the MCU has given us a range of villains, from alien warlords to genocidal robots, each with their unique strengths and weaknesses. But Kang is unlike any of them. With the ability to manipulate time, space, and reality itself, Kang could pose a threat to the entire fabric of the MCU. In this article, we’ll take a closer look at Kang the Conqueror and compare his power level to some of the other notable villains we’ve seen in the MCU.

As a time-traveling villain with vast knowledge of the multiverse, Kang has been touted as one of the most formidable adversaries that the Avengers could face after his introduction in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. But just how powerful is he compared to other MCU villains?

Kang the Conqueror vs. Thanos

Thanos is by far the most iconic villain ever to show up in the MCU. He’s also one of the strongest and most powerful. It takes a lot to take him down (literally, since his durability is off the charts), and as it happens, we’ve already covered the fight between Thanos and Kang, and the outcome was as you would have expected. Thanos would outclass Kang the Conqueror regarding raw energy projection, strength, durability, and speed. Thanos is also quite brilliant, so Kang would have trouble catching him unprepared.

Kang the Conqueror vs. Ronan

It’s only fitting that Thanos is followed by his “once upon a time” second-in-command, Ronan. Ronan is not the sharpest tool in the shed, as it happens. First, he rebelled against Thanos and thought himself smart enough to scheme behind his back. Second, he got fooled by Guardians of the Galaxy in an undignified way and got killed by the very thing that he sought. Even with the Power Stone under his belt, Ronan could not stand against Kang the Conqueror. Kang has unparalleled intelligence and potential at his disposal. It would be a clear win for him.

Kang the Conqueror vs. Ultron

Ultron is one MCU villain who could give any other villain a run for his money. He is, naturally, brutally intelligent, almost indestructible, capable of transferring himself to his army of drones, extremely strong and agile. How would Kang compare to him? Badly as it would seem, as Ultron extremely outclasses him, even when it comes to intelligence which should be Kang’s strong suit. Kang can win this only with some time-traveling tomfoolery involved. In any other case, it’s a clear win for Ultron.


Why Kang Has Scars on His Face? Explained 

Kang the Conqueror vs. Loki

Loki is extremely mischievous and petty, and even though he is an extremely powerful and durable Frost Giant, he would still have difficulty dealing with Kang. Kang is intelligent as well, has mad energy projection skills, and seems to be far more brutal than Loki. In my opinion, Kang would be able to take down Loki one-on-one.

Kang the Conqueror vs. M.O.D.O.K.

M.O.D.O.K. appeared in the Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania as Kang’s errand boy. It’s unlikely that it would come to a conflict between the two as Kang is the only reason that M.O.D.O.K. can function. Now, we’ve already covered in detail how the fight between M.O.D.O.K. and Kang would play out, but if you’re not interested in the long version, Kang will win.

Kang’s powers are versatile. He is more durable and mobile, and once again, Kang’s next-gen tech is the only reason why M.O.D.O.K. is not deformed. Additionally, the MCU version of M.O.D.O.K. seems to be a lot weaker than his comic equivalent.

Kang the Conqueror vs. Gorr the God Butcher

Gorr was introduced as a villain in Thor: Love and Thunder. He was introduced as someone who was a threat to an entire Council of Godheads and our favorite Asgardian god as well. Considering that Gorr has an entire spreadsheet of gods he killed over several millennia of existence, I doubt that he would have much trouble against Kang. He is durable, nearly indestructible even. He is quite agile and has strength comparable to Thor. Besides, he has a sword that Kang’s tech can’t counter. The winner of this duel would be Gorr.

Kang the Conqueror vs. Taskmaster

The MCU version of Taskmaster was significantly weaker than the comic version, and if it came to a fight between two villains, I am absolutely sure that Kang would be able to deal with him swiftly without much trouble. With his 41st-century armor, Kang turns into a superpowered durable beast. Taskmaster’s fighting skill wouldn’t be enough to deal with Kang’s powerful energy blasts.


What Is the Council of Kangs? Members, Powers, Enemies

Kang the Conqueror vs. Dormammu

Dormammu is in a power category of its own. He is a cosmic entity, and I don’t see an angle from which Kang the Conqueror can come even close to beating him. Sure, Kang is a Nexus Being, but that doesn’t mean much when you’re facing an entity that practically rules over an entire dimension. This one goes to Dormammu

Kang the Conqueror vs. Ego

Kang would have no trouble dispatching Ego’s mortal Avatar. He might have trouble dispatching the planet that Ego formed around his core. No matter how powerful Kang the Conqueror is, he can’t go alone against a Celestial. His intelligence would seem funny in a way, and so would his armor-enhanced physiology. This one goes to Ego.

Kang the Conqueror vs. High Evolutionary

Now, High Evolutionary is technically not yet a villain in the MCU. He is yet to be introduced in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, but we’ve already covered the hypothetical fight between the two villains based on their comic book powers, and as it turns out. High Evolutionary would win due to having godlike powers of creation at his disposal. It would be a close match because both villains depend on technology when it comes to their physical aspects. Still, High Evolutionary’s intelligence is by far superior, as well as his destructive potential. Kang might be able to time travel, affect probability, or something like that, but High Evolutionary wins in terms of raw power.
