OPINION–After Loki‘s stunning season finale, fans are asking just one question: who could the mystery villain be? Referred to only as “He Who Remains,” this character was introduced on Loki’s final episode as one who cut the current timeline off from all other timelines to protect the universe from his own villainous variants. While his true identity is a Major mystery, our comic book experts have begun speculating as to who he could be.

Aang. It may seem a bit out of left field, but what if He Who Remains is actually Aang the Avatar, using his airbending powers to manipulate the winds of time?

Kaine. In the comics, Kaine was one of several clones of Spider-Man, but lacking Peter Parker’s sense of morality. And if that doesn’t sound like someone who has a bunch of evil variants, then we sure don’t know what does!

Kangaroo. And speaking of obscure, irrelevant Spider-Man villains, could this actually be the lesser-known archfiend the Kangaroo, hopping all over the timestream?

Nicole Kang. Let’s also not rule out Nicole Kang–yes, the real-life actress who plays Kate Kane’s adoptive sister on Batwoman. After all, has anyone ever seen her and Jonathan Majors in the same place at the same time? Or even in the same timeline?

Chang. Experts believe that He Who Remains was demonstrating signs of textbook Changnesia.

Kull the Conqueror. He Who Remains did refer to himself as a conqueror, after all. Surely, if he was going to be a 4-letter “K” name from Marvel comics followed by a title of “the Conqueror,” then this one would have to be it!

Iron Lad. The Young Avengers team included Iron Lad, a time-traveling hero from the future. Is it possible that He Who Remains could even be a future or variant version of this young hero? Only time will tell!
