    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:

      Quote:

      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.
    For example:
    - 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 + ...
    Etc.



    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).


Daaaaaaaaaamn.

YES PLEASE.
