Quote:I once suggested on the board to merge Mandarin & Kang the Conqueror into one single character in the MCU.
Quote:If Mandarin is revealed to be a chrononaut, it would explain why he has been a legend for millennia:
According to the 'All Hail the King' DTV short film :
"So, you mean to tell me that you don't know the history of the Mandarin himself? He was a warrior-king. Inspired generations of men through the Middle Ages, perhaps even further back in time."
Quote:It would not be the first time that a MCU villain is actually the combo of multiple comics characters.
- MCU Whiplash = Crimson Dynamo + Whiplash + others
- MCU Hela = Hela + Cul Borson + Angela (and, obviously, her background is also inspired by the First Born, an antagonist of Wonder Woman)
- MCU Yellowjacket = Darren Cross + Hank Pym + Rita DeMara + ...
Quote:Besides, thanks to the Doctor Strange movie, we already know that time manipulation is possible in the MCU.
Quote:For example : in the MCU, the Mandarin / the Conqueror could actually be ... Andros Stark.
Quote:Instead of being a descendant of Nathaniel Richards, he is a member of the Stark family coming from the future.
Quote:In his own future timeline, he developed a technology based on the Time Stone which Tony Stark had the opportunity to analyze after Infinity War.
Quote:In the MCU, his alias could be Gregory Andros (since Gregory Stark is Tony Stark's "evil twin" in the Ultimate Universe).
