I tried hard figuring out why He Who Remain’s time device was so familiar to me until I walked pass my apartment lobby:

chromaticsoup

Did you check to see if you could travel through time with it?


Main-Astronomer5288

Good idea but I don’t wanna end up in the TVA


Afanis_The_Dolphin

Just go to an apocalypse. You don't understand the gravity of the situation, you could get us season 2 right now!


Transatlanticaccent

Well shiiiiiiit. Just give us the entire MCU for the next 20 years if we're messing with time. I got a good 2 years of exclusive watch time in me.


Afanis_The_Dolphin

I'm perplexed about how Marvel would react to that. Like it's technically their property... People can't really publish it on the internet, it has their characters ib it.. But like what are they gonna do?


IndyAndyJones7

Sell the completed movies to Marvel


Kratoskiller113

Then who wrote and made the movies if we just sell the already finished product to marvel?


IndyAndyJones7

How would I know? I haven't been then yet. Read the credits when you watch it and find out.


Kratoskiller113

It was more of a hypothetical. Like if marvel just put out movies from the future then they couldn’t have made them in the present, so begs the question on who made these films if no body did in this hypothetical scenario.


souledgar

Using MCU time travel rules, the fact that they are brought here and so they never need to be made again is separate from the future where they were made. Their existence here does not cause a causality paradox with the timeline they came from. They are still made by future Marvel.

Consider the Ship of Theseus


DoctorPan

So, there's this man, he has a time machine. Up and down history he goes — zip, zip, zip, zip, zip — getting into scrapes. Another thing he has is a passion for the works of Ludwig van Beethoven. Then, one day, he thinks, "What's the point in having a time machine if you don't get to meet your heroes?" So, off he goes to 18th Century Germany, but he can't find Beethoven anywhere. No one's heard of him. Not even his family have any idea who the time traveller is talking about. Beethoven literally doesn't exist. This didn't happen, by the way. I've met Beethoven. Nice chap. Very intense. Loved an arm wrestle. No, this is called the bootstrap paradox. Google it. The time traveller panics. He can't bear the thought of a world without the music of Beethoven. Luckily, he'd brought all of his Beethoven sheet music for Ludwig to sign. So, he copies out all the concertos and the symphonies, and *he* gets them published. He *becomes* Beethoven. And history continues with barely a feather ruffled. My question is this: who put those notes and phrases together? Who really composed Beethoven's Fifth?


TheRealKiwiKingdom

Bootstrap Paradox are great, we need more of that in DW


TR3NTiCl3S

That's what they said...


Kratoskiller113

Thanks for this, this is what I was going for. Loved Peter Capaldi in that role.


AvMavAirborne

Ah, the Causality Paradox.


bigbangbilly

Witch hunts I'm guessing. Plus there's this huge leak in Magic the Gathering and they are nit going 5o acknowledge it.


sdcSpade

But how will we know we're not getting weird variant movies like "The Incredible Hulk and the Prisoner of Azkaban"?


Transatlanticaccent

Red Skull as he who shall not be named!


Oceanbriz

But what if you are meant to travel in time?


vietboi2999

what if you not trying is your nexus event? O.o


LordCommanderBlack

The building lost 15 good janitors that way.


Kapow-Warrior

good point


yourpseudonymsucks

I jumped through it headfirst and was transported to three hours in the future.


Professorsnatch_mc

r/UnderratedComments


generalecchi

Any side effect ?


yourpseudonymsucks

headache, confusion, lack of coordination, memory loss, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, ringing in the ears, sleepiness and excessive fatigue


Main_Tea_4164

Is Kang real


BitterFuture

Sometimes there's just no benefit to messing with good design. It's classic for a reason. (Also, you should check your apartment for monitoring devices. Actually, that's probably pointless. Ones from Kang's time are probably smaller than you can see.)


porcos3

Variant!


Known-Temperature288

Your timeline has already been conquered...


demigod-dude28

Lol 🤣


koopardo

Lolki


Mindfish11

Do we know anything about the device that He Who Remains uses? Seems to be an odd piece of tech. I'm wondering if there is any back story to it.


Tiiimmmaayy

I thought it looked pretty similar to the devices the Avengers used while they were time traveling. The one that Tony invented to guide them through time.


roodootootootoo

ooo I hadn't even thought about that! Like a more base, enchanted instead of tech version. Good catch.


flash-tractor

It's just a visually distinct tempad.


Splaishe

Yea either Loki or Sylvie called it a tempad


terlin

Probably just a finely-tuned TemPad.


sergiosala

I personally think is a device from the future, so one day we’ll see why or how they make it. That long plan would pay off nicely.


CaptHayfever

I'm still not sure how Sylvie knew how to work that thing. There's no actual interface.


zima_for_shaw

She's a very "tech savvy" Loki


RoboticCurrents

this is when scott accidentally hits kangs tempad with a shrink disc


SAMO1415

“Sorry I turned your table into a coaster!” -ant man


StarkOdinson117

oo that looks nice


KaneVonDoom

This Black with Gold running through it design element we see in He Who Remains' tech and castle look strikingly similar to both the Eternals ship as well as the fabric under the webbing on the new Spider-Man Black and Gold suit from No Way Home. I wonder if there's some connection or if this is just a bit of coincidence.


sideways_jack

It definitely reminded me of Kitsugi, or repairing pottery with gold -- at least design wise https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kintsugi


narfidy

Which is why I personally think this is not the first Kang to conquer time. Just put the old lab back together after he kicked out the old one


Canvaverbalist

My theory is that the Kangs were imprisoned in a pocket dimension far from all other dimensions, just stuck in their own timelines so they can't mess with the other universes/dimensions [like maybe they did went to war with themselves jumping from one Universe to another, eventually reaching farther and farther universes disconnected from his own until a Lovecraftian Higher Cosmic Being plucked him from this Hyperverse and put him in his own confined Multiverse, like how a human would be annoyed at a bunch of bugs venturing in their kitchen and putting them in a mason jar to fight among each other], this multiverse of his being all of own variations without access to anything else, so he eventually won and streamlined his own timeline into a "Sacred Timeline" and whenever he dies it just goes back to the beginning and starts all over again. So he's just utterly bored because he can't escape this fate. The Lokis, being "Gods of Mischief" are his hope that they'll disrupt the loop and bring some cumulative bits of chaos with each iterations until they eventually change the loop and allow One Kang to escape back into the Hyperverse. It just so happen that Kang managed to discover Universe Jumping because of Tony Stark's work on Time travel, which explains why his Timeline and the MCU are happening in the same Multiverse.


dope-inder

OP is the Kang in making.


Chara1979

It's always so funny when that happens. There was a store in the 90s that used to sell generic "foreign" looking art and furniture and I'd always see stuff from there turning up in Star Trek TNG. We owned at least 2 statues that were continuously used as props on that show.


Jabaman2016

Should you really be in THIS timeline? Should you?


MechaNickzilla

/r/thatsaminiaturebooklight


onlyplay2win

It's called a tampon


INFP-Ca

A giant tempad!


Ducky_Face

Can’t the mods cover the title? Putting spoiler and still having that title there is a spoiler.


Kyro_Sol

🤣🤣🤣 That's pretty hilarious. I don't know if you know this already but it's also the same device Tony and all the Avengers used in endgame to time travel. It's like a hand band tempad. I am also surprised that in 1000 years time, it wasn't practically even a ring but just became huge.


alex494

Its probably larger because the Avenger's actual time pad / time travel anchor took up a whole room and the wrist device was just a GPS to locate timelines and initiate a jump. Kang's probably also has the entire time travel functionality in the one device.


DuncanGilbert

Apparently thats a technique of using gold to fill in imperfections and cracks and pottery. I like the symbolism cuz it means that Kang is the one filing in the cracks of an imperfect timeline


SuperAlex25

YOU ARE KANG!!!!!1!!1!1!1!11


CaptainWhitePanda

Come on don't kid us, we know you're a variant of kang!


okaypuck

My theory: since His dwelling and bracelet feature Kintsugi, the Japanese craft of repairing broken vessels using gold as a sealant, this implies heavily that this is indeed a loop, since everything has been torn apart and put back together already, which makes his “See ya soon.” line ring even truer.


paracog

Well, it was bound to be somewhere.


The_controler

Op is a king variant


jwright721

I think...we’ve crossed...a threshold


SalmanMaxim

Try jumping through it


Positivity_Soul

Great!! Tweet this and tag everyone.


InjectThePain

You’re his variant !


CaptHowdy02

Kang and everyone in this particular Marvel timeline are actually giants.
