In the comics, Kang’s attempt to travel back in time to persuade his younger self to accept his fate backfired. Instead, he killed his future self and became IronLad, causing a time paradox. This was finally rectified when he returned to the future and became Kang the Conqueror, fulfilling his destiny.
Kang the Conqueror is a future-traveling villain who is one of the Avengers’ most formidable adversaries. During one of Kang’s time travels, he came across a younger version of himself being tormented, especially by a youngster who threatened to put Kang in the hospital and financially destroy his family. Despite the Avengers’ persistent interfering, the elder Kang revealed to the younger one all of their future exploits together, and that the two of them would become great. Despite the fact that Kang provided his younger self with a replica of his own power armor and the opportunity to kill his bully, the young Kang rebelled and escaped to the twenty-first century.
When Kang arrived, however, the Avengers had already disassembled, forcing him to seek information on their locations on his own. Kang would find the remnants of the Vision (another Avenger who died during Wanda’s breakdown) after breaking into an Avengers tech vault and, after downloading his memories into his armor, discover a fail-safe plan that would lead him to younger heroes who could replace the Avengers in the event the team fell, and would then form the Young Avengers.
Iron-brainwaves Lad’s remained in the Iron-Lad armor, which, when combined with the Vision and his A.I., created a completely new individual, a type of “Young Vision.” While this new Vision recalled certain details from his time as Iron-Lad, particularly his companions, he was fundamentally a new person. However, because the Iron-Lad armor was originally Kang’s, Tony Stark and the Avengers had to monitor this new Vision because there was a potential Vision was evil. The vision became a full member of the Young Avengers after assisting the Young Avengers in preventing another Kree-Skrull conflict from erupting. Vision joined the Young Avengers as a full-fledged member. The vision would also fall in love with Stature, Scott Lang’s daughter and a member of the Young Avengers, and eventually, join the Mighty Avengers.
Despite the fact that the original Iron-Lad has made appearances over the years and the original Vision has reverted to his previous demeanor, Iron-first Lad’s debut was unforgettable and sad. Kang had been a significant villain in the Marvel Universe for a long time, pursuing conquest and power at any costs. Kang was transformed into a tragic figure by Iron-Lad, who refused to accept his evil fate and attempted to live a better life as a hero. The young Kang, on the other hand, could never have such a life since it would be the end of history as we know it. Kang the Conqueror became one of Marvel’s greatest heroes accidentally and without recollection, deciding to forego a life of glory and pleasure for the protection of his companions and the rest of the world. Iron-Lad, as we know him, is no longer with us, but his heroic legacy will live on.
