Kang the conqueror shows up, doing what he does best, which is to attempt a conquering, and proceed to fail at it. Of course, we've seen Kang before, way back when he was called Rama-Tut and tussled with the Fan Four.
Kang puts the whooping on the Avengers, but is then fooled by Rick Jones and the Teen Brigade (yes, they're still around). I have to believe that Stan assumes that his readers see the Teen Brigade as somehow being analogous to them if they were in the Marvel Universe. I guess that makes sense? However, if I'm going to fantasize about living in the MU, I mine as well envision myself as Spider-Man or a Norse God of Thunder. Probably not Rick Jones. Just sayin'.
- The Avengers do not have a leader at this point in time; they're run as a democracy
- Stan Lee also talks about Kang's time in the year 4,000. It's not pretty.
