One of the strongest antagonists in the Marvel comic, Kang The Conqueror supposedly has unimaginable powers like rewriting history. Kang from the core is a normal human being with no cosmic abilities of his own. But he fills the void with the help of advanced technology and strong will.
Since his debut in 1963, he has been an iconic Marvel character. With a number of incarnations, each one having different abilities and powers, Kang is known to have fought with a multitude of heroes. Whether it’s Kang himself, Rama Tut, or Iron Lad from the Young Avengers, Kang has a wide range of powers to use against his enemies and sometimes, himself.
1. Time Travel
Kang is known as a time traveler from the 30th century. His ultimate goal is to conquer all the eras, however, our Marvel heroes always have one or the other way to create trouble. This is one of his greatest cosmic power, attained by his alter ego, Nathaniel Richards. Time travel can be stated as the key to who Kang is and what he wants.
2. Advanced Technological Skills
The invention of varied technologies is one of the greatest examples of his technological and cosmic abilities. The major portion of his army consisted of robotic foot soldiers that he created. Also, the anti-gravity floating chair can be seen in his debut appearance in the comics. He also invented other unique arms such as Damocles Base, his giant sword- shape spaceship to launch his conquests.
3. Body Transfer
Inspired by Doctor Doom, Kang created his suit of armor keeping in mind the possibilities of him being dead. He uses technology in a way that keeps his core surviving even though his physical body does not. His helmet was created such that transferred his soul to another body that kinda makes him immortal. Also in the finale of Loki, there were certain unclear references that he or his variant would reappear through reincarnation even if He Who Remains was killed.
4. Energy Blasts
Among the variants of Kang The Conqueror, Iron Lad is said to be the most powerful. In addition to the suit of armor, he also has the ability to fire powerful energy blasts with the help of his suit. These blasts are far more destructive than the concussive blasts Kang’s Battle Armor produces.
5. Enhanced Strength and Endurance
Kang’s Battle Armor efficiently provides him with all the superpowers, be that strength or endurance. His suit is produced using highly advanced synthetic alloy brought by him from the 40th century. This suit helps him resist most of the physical attacks. He has the ability to project a force field from the armor which can even absorb the energy of a nuclear blast and can help in damage control.
