The TVA! And... the Time Keepers!

 

The Time Variance Authority has been Marvel Comics' "Time police" for a long time; people who messed with the time lines would soon find themselves being arrested by one of their agents, such as Justice Peace.

They were, however, not traditionally affiliated with the Time Keepers, three beings from the end of time (If I remember Correctly, they were actually created by the last agent of the TVA) who governed the timelines much like the TVA did. So this makes sense.

However, one of the beings who never cared about the TVA and actively opposed the Time Keepers was Kang the Conqueror! Like Loki, Kang is one of the Avengers' oldest foes; but he had his origin story in a Fantastic Four book, so they couldn't use him... Until now.

Loki will outsmart the Time Keepers. If Odin couldn't keep him locked up then they likely can't. He's a great escape artist for one. He's also pretty good at finding weakness's in his enemies to take advantage of. That's one of his core strengths. He's smart and he learns quick.

I haven't watched any of the episode as I'm waiting for the series to complete before I binge watch this.  It's very hard to avoid spoilers with all the memes and fan theories out there.  I accidentally spoiled some of the episodes when I was trying to time the subtitles.  But I am excited to watch this as the season comes to a close.  

For whatever plot twists that's waiting to unravel, all I can say is that it was Agatha all along. :lol:

My money's on Immortus.

(spoilers)

 

You got it.. although they made Immortus' ultimate evolution He-Who-Remains. The guy's like a Digimon.

It is in line with the MCU's tendency to fold things into eachother.

It should be interesting to see how Jonathan plays Kang. I hope he will make it a very different performance.

in endgame, they did a lot of time travel shenanigans and brought infinity stones which resulted in thanos coming from a past time and getting killed in the present, all of this is messed up time stuff, why the heck didn't the TVA do anything about all of that? I know they put the infinity stones back, but they didn't put thanos back, or nebula, or gamora, etc.

Well, this actually came up on the first episode when Loki was debating with Mobius.  It was explained by Mobius that this was supposed to happen on the sacred timeline which is why the TVA didn't do anything about it.  My guess is that the nexus where past Thanos came from didn't diverge enough to cause damage to the sacred timeline.  But then, how did Loki know about the Avengers going back in time trying to collect the infinity stones when it hasn't even happened yet on his point in time.  I wouldn't know much since I'm still up to episode 2.

I bet the timeline Thanos left from and thus became a branch ("the universe without Thanos") was wiped out five minutes after he left by the TVA. He did not have to be wiped from the 'sacred timeline' after that since he was definitively destroyed by the Avengers about an hour after he arrived in the future, along with all his minions.

Aha! I just realized why not! Everything that is wiped out, is not really wiped out - it is sent to "Beyond the end of time", let's call it Limbo, to be destroyed by Alioth. I think He-Who-Remains was not confident that even Alioth could defeat Thanos and his minions, and rather than risking it, leave it to the Avengers.
