Ant-Man 3: 10 Ways Kang The Conqueror's Introduction Will Change The MCU Forever
10. Ant-Man's Punishment
When Scott Lang emerged from the Quantum Realm in Avengers: Endgame, he went to Earth's Mightiest Heroes with an idea: to travel through time and stop Thanos. With Tony Stark's help, they managed to achieve that, and the ramifications are bound to be felt for a long time to come.
Sure, Captain America put the Infinity Stones back where they belonged, but only after The Avengers had created a series of new, branching timelines as a result of their actions... even Steve Rogers ultimately decided to head back in time to live out his life with Peggy Carter! In a roundabout way, all of that is Scott's fault as he's the one who helped set the Avengers' time-travel plan in motion.
With that in mind, it's no great surprise that Kang the Conqueror is going to come looking for Ant-Man, and it seems likely he will want to punish the hero for the affects his actions had on the timeline.
Not only does this make Ant-Man one of the MCU's most important characters, but if his actions created Kang, he may also be one of the most dangerous. The question is, will it be here that Scott finally goes the same way as his comic book counterpart by being killed off? It seems likely.
