Avengers: The Kang Dynasty Plot
According to Marvel Comics, Avengers: The Kang Dynasty follows Kang the Conqueror appears with his son Marcus, the new Scarlet Centurion in front of the U.N, after Marcus is barely defeated by Goliath, Triathlon, Iron Man, Vision, Wasp, and Warbird, and destroys the building using a blast from a space base, Damocles, which is shaped like a giant sword, but when Wasp talks of the murders he has committed, he shows none of the occupants have been killed. Kang creates a force-field around the group and shows many visions of the Earth’s possible futures, all of them dark and horrific. At first, it is thought he intends to help the Earth, but then he announces that he wishes to conquer it in order to save it.
Kang tells the UN that he will strike at France first. He then announces that any who conquers land in his name will have a place in his new order. Several groups and foes—including the Presence, the Deviants, and Attuma’s Atlanteans, attack across the world. Kang knew that against an invading army, the Earth would unite but against their own, they would be fractured. He then teleports away with the Centurion, by threatening to strike with lethal force if they make another attack. Meanwhile, the Presence is attacking Russia with a group of radioactive ghost-like creatures that most of the Soviet-Super Soldiers have been turned into and who several Avengers members meet.
On Earth 616, Kang and the Scarlet Centurion are gloating over their victory when they are told the Avengers are attacking their main prison. Thor and the Avengers left on Earth free Wasp and many other heroes, taking them to the Master’s base, which they use as their new base of operations. They discover how to activate his technology (the huge ring walls) across America, which proves a massive threat to Kang. Their plan is to distract him so that Warbird, Thor, Iron Man, Wonder Man, and Firestar can attack Damocles Base, with the Master’s technology hopefully taking down its protective force field. Wasp has reservations until the President himself, who is safely at the base, encourages her to do it. She agrees, but first says she has to make some calls.
