Kang's Last Battle Teased In Shocking New Look At Marvel Future

In a new look at the future of the Marvel Universe, Kang the Conqueror’s last battle in the pages of Marvel Comics will be told. The upcoming one-shot Timeless #1 will not only feature a dramatic adventure for the supervillain across time but will set up what’s coming next in the Marvel Universe, as many teases, first appearances, and more will be revealed in the wide-ranging new story.

Marvel Comics released the first Timeless one-shot in 2021, as the comic set the stage for what was to come in the Marvel Universe. The comic featured Kang the Conqueror looking across time and teasing storylines that would occur, including Lin Lie becoming the Iron Fist, Iron Man becoming a literal god, Jack of Hearts returning from the dead, and Punisher working alongside The Hand. While not all the teases from last year’s issue have come to fruition, the comic showed a glimpse of some of the year’s biggest storylines – even if Marvel missed their chance at making Kang their biggest villain that year. Now, Timeless is getting a 2022 edition.

In a new announcement, Marvel Comics revealed Timeless will be getting a 2022 edition from Jed Mackay, Salvador Larroca, Greg Land, and Patch Zircher, which sets up the next year for the Marvel Universe. The announcement teases a “dramatic” journey for Kang the Conqueror as the time-traveling villain will search for “one thing he cannot have.” Kang, who might be more despicable than Thanos, will be on the run from the events of the Marvel Universe’s future, as the synopsis of the issue specifically refers to “the last battle of Kang the Conqueror.” Check out the Kang-starring cover for Timeless #1 by Kael Ngu, which features the villain kneeling before the Marvel Universe.

In a Marvel press release, Jed MacKay shared that the comic will be “bigger and better than ever” while teasing Kang’s last battle potentially being his “last one.” The solicitation for the issue shares additional details about Timeless #1 by Marvel Comics and the journey the time-traveling Kang the Conqueror is about to face.

The new Timeless one-shot will set up what’s coming next in the Marvel Universe, as Kang the Conqueror’s last battle will unfold. The one-shot will be a must-read for fans of Marvel Comics who want a glimpse into the future of Marvel Comics and Kang the Conqueror’s potential role in upcoming stories – which could get much larger considering Kang’s forthcoming role in the MCU. Timeless #1 arrives in comic book stores and online retailers on December 28, 2022.
