Recap: Avengers: EMH (Micro-Episode 18) "Lo, There Shall Come a Conqueror"

Well, enough of the red, white, and blue. This week, it's the blue, green, and purple.

I checked Wikipedia's list of flag color combos. Blue, green, and purple isn't one. Also, there's a list of flag color combos.
Again, it's time for the protagonist to shift. This time, it switches to the oddly-dressed future guy! I'll make this simple for you; his name is Kang.

Select your own punchline.
We see Cap defeat the cyclops again, but this time, Kang floats nearby, watching events unfold. Bucky barely notices the flash as he timewarps away to watch the castle crumble. He then warps ahead to the fateful rocket launch and watches it from his magnificent flying throne.

Metron called, he wants his chair back.
He watches as Cap slowly sinks into the ocean. Using manual control, he speeds up time to see if Cap ever left the ocean. Nothing. But before he can do anything further, his computer tells him that there's some bad mojo back in his hometime. Reluctantly, he returns to his spaceship, the Damocles. As he sits in his Fortress of Solitude crystal chamber, his computer informs him that time is rewriting itself. The world is being replaced with a barren wasteland, and the stars are probably going out.

He thinks out loud, blaming Captain America. Apparently, all the chrono-clues point to him.

Kang: "But I saw you meet your end in the 20th century! How can you be responsible, unless..."

Getting an idea, he checks the 21st century.

Kang: "Of course. I did not conquer the Earth just to see it wiped from existence. Damocles, prepare the fleet for timejump!"



So, Kang the Conqueror. The Earth's future is either complete annihilation, or a global dictatorship. Lesser of two evils, I guess. As his fleet gets ready to go back in time, there's a timewave.. thingy that wipes out much of his crew, and nearly his wife, Princess Ravonna. He arrives in the 21st century as his wife flickers between existence and nonexistence in his arms.

Kang: "I'll save our entire timeline. Even if I have to conquer this timeline to do it."

But... if you conquer the past, you're not going to be able to ensure that the future is exactly how you remember it, unless you  already did that in your timeline, but then where are those timeshifts coming from and....

It's either this or a migraine. I choose this.
And so it ends. For now.
