Marvel Is Teasing a Massive Kang vs Doctor Doom Battle

Doctor Doom looks worse for wear in a new teaser for Marvel’s Timeless, hinting at a conflict with the time-traveling Kang the Conqueror.

A new teaser for Marvel’s Timeless suggests Kang the Conqueror’s time-traveling exploits will see him cross paths with Doctor Doom.

Timeless is an upcoming one-shot written by Jed MacKay with art by Kev Walker, Greg Land and Mark Bagley. The comic will be used to set up the next year of Marvel storylines by bringing Kang face-to-face with potential tomorrows. In a new teaser image for the special, a disheveled Doctor Doom sits on a throne. Though the good doctor recently received a massive mystical power-up, this piece of art shows Doom surrounded by complicated machinery and gears, hinting at some of the technological advances that Timeless will apparently tout. The teaser is accompanied by the text, “What plans does Doctor Doom have for the future of the Marvel Universe?”

This is the latest in a series of teasers for Timeless, advertising the multiple futures possible through its narrative. An earlier image offered up a look at Anatoly Petrov, who will accompany Kang on his journey and serves as a viewpoint character for readers. Another image showed Thanos wielding an Infinity Stone-powered Mjolnir, which calls back to the dark future of the Marvel Universe first hinted at in Donny Cates and Geoff Shaw’s run on Thanos.

Speaking about how the one-shot will be used to launch new stories, writer MacKay explained, “I will say that we’ll be seeing these ideas play out for years to come.” He also elaborated on the issue’s core narrative, saying, “Kang finds himself challenged by a rogue, severed timeline that has fought off the entropic decay that would normally have dissolved it and seeks to reattach itself to the main timeline. The chronal gravity of this rogue timeline is playing hell with the main timeline. It’s up to Kang to sort it out.”

This one-shot won’t be the first time Doctor Doom and Kang the Conqueror have crossed paths. As two of the oldest villains in Marvel’s roster of rogues, they have battled across multiple eras. Recently, the Kang the Conqueror miniseries explored one of their earliest encounters, in which Kang defeated Doom with the help of one of his variants. It’s possible Doom’s reappearance in Timeless is teasing at a rematch between the two.

Outside of comics, Kang the Conqueror is set to be one of the featured players in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. The film will be the third in the Ant-Man series and will see actor Jonathan Majors play the time-traveling tyrant first introduced in Loki. Majors insists that his role in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania will feature an entirely different character than his appearances in the Disney+ series. As is often the case with Kang, only time will tell what the future holds.
