Welcome to day 23 of the Jimmy Trims daily December advent calendar countdown! This year Jimmy has handselected the very best #stanlee
creations as we close out 2018 and for today we have probably the best Marvel villain never to make a cinematic appearance.
On the 23rd day of Christmas, Stan Lee gave to us, #kangtheconqueror
Kang first appeared in The Avengers #8
(Sep. 1964), and was created by writer Stan Lee and artist Jack Kirby. Rama-Tut first appeared in Fantastic Four #19
(Oct. 1963). Nathaniel Richards, a 31st-century scholar and possible descendant of Reed Richards' father, becomes fascinated with history and discovers the time travel technology created by Victor von Doom. Richards then travels back in time to ancient Egypt aboard a Sphinx-shaped timeship and becomes the Pharaoh Rama-Tut, with plans to claim En Sabah Nur—the mutant destined to become Apocalypse—as his heir. Rama-Tut's rule is cut short when he is defeated by the time-displaced Fantastic Four. An embittered Richards travels forward to the 20th century, where he meets Doctor Doom, who he believes might be his ancestor. He later designs armor based on Doom's and, calling himself the Scarlet Centurion, pits the Avengers team against alternate-reality counterparts. He plans to dispose of all of them, but the Avengers manage to force him from the timeline.
Richards then tries to return to the 31st century, but overshoots by a thousand years, discovering a war-torn Earth that uses advanced weapons they no longer understand. He finds it simple to conquer the planet, expanding his dominion throughout the galaxy, and reinvents himself as Kang the Conqueror. But this future world is dying, and so he decides to take over an earlier, more fertile Earth.
