Marvel Phase 4 has introduced Kang the Conqueror to the MCU through Loki season 1. He will also be appearing as the main villain in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. Kang is being set up to be the big bad throughout phases 5 and 6 in the MCU. He has multiple variants throughout the multiverse and had singlehandedly created the TVA or the Time Variance Authority. One such variant was killed by Sylvie in the final episode of Loki. Similarly, another Kang variant known as Rama-Tut from ancient Egypt is rumored to appear in the MCU as a part of the Fantastic Four project.
The upcoming Fantastic Four project has made a lot of buzz amongst fans. In fact, they have been theorizing about the casting of the actors and the Director who has now been confirmed to be Matt Shakman, Director of WandaVision. Initially, the villain of the Fantastic Four movie was rumored to be Doctor Doom. However, lately, there have been rumors claiming that Rama-Tut a Kang variant will be the main villain.
Rama-Tut is a Kang variant who has been a constant foe of the Fantastic Four and is considered to be one of their fiercest enemies. Considering, how the MCU is trying to set up Kang the Conqueror as a major villain, it might be plausible that he will be the main villain of the upcoming Fantastic Four project. This idea would also explore the concept of the Multiverse and its variants. Moreover, Rama-Tut is considered to be the most dangerous villain of the Fantastic Four. And the MCU has already alluded to the fact that Kang and his variants will be playing an important role even before Avengers: Kang Dynasty.
Rama-Tut was born as Nathaniel Richards, a far-off descendant of none other than Reed Richards aka Mr. Fantastic in the 30th century. Initially, this character started off as a hero. After being visited by his alternate self, Kang the Conqueror, he had decided to change the course of his destiny and refused to become the villain he was meant to be. And this is when he adopted the identity of Iron Lad. However, due to obvious reasons, he found his way back to his original path and began his life as a supervillain. That’s when he was intrigued by the Fantastic Four and decided to become their nemesis. Eventually, he used a time machine created by himself to transport himself to Ancient Egypt where he became the Emperor Rama-Tut. He took control over the entire Kingdom. He even disguised the time machine as a Sphinx to blend in.
During his time in Egypt, he became somewhat of a God figure to the people. The people erected statues of him and worshipped Rama-Tut. They even rejected the old gods under his command. This is how Rama-Tut locked horns with the Egyptian Moon God Khonshu. The same Khonshu who possesses Moon Knight and makes him do his bidding. Rama-Tut even faced off against the Avengers who were helping Khonshu oust him from Egypt. Eventually, he ran into the Fantastic Four who had time travelled to procure a special radioactive herb. He enslaved the Fantastic Four which turned out to be his undoing. With the aid of Khonshu, the Fantastic Four and Doctor Strange in his astral form managed to defeat Rama-Tut.
His powers are obviously similar to those of Kang. He somehow managed to slow down his ageing process to the point where he barely grew old. Rama-Tut being from the future had access to a whole lot of advanced weaponry such as missile launchers and time travel ships. He was also extremely intelligent obviously and skilled in hand-to-hand combat. However, he was significantly less experienced and less refined than the other Kang’s. While this made him reckless and even more dangerous it also gave the heroes the opportunities to defeat him and use his carelessness to their advantage.
