Question about Kang

Ever since I finished Loki S2, something hasn't sit quite right with me.

I always interpreted the concept of the TVA as something that prunes EVERY universe that results in a variant of Kang, but I understand that the accepted explanation is that it prunes BRANCHES of the Sacred Timeline that lead to a variant of him.

In that case, If the whole point of the TVA /The big dog cloud (Don't remember his name, my bad) is that it stops people from crossing to the sacred timeline, how did America Chavez get over? How did 838 in MoM send them back home? How did every villain in No Way Home get there? And if the entire point of Kang is that he's a genius to the point where every variant of him is a potential threat, how could they do it and he couldnt?

Even if we accept the alternate explanation, that the TVA prunes every universe (I don't remember them ever specifying actually,) then how does the Council of Kangs exist?

The only explanation I can think of is that the TVA DOES prune every universe (Thereby negating the risk of Kang coming over,) and Loki killing Kang stopped that, allowing the other kangs to appear. This works well enough time-wise if you assume that the TVA exists far enough outside time that every event that happens there has an impact on the full history of every universe, then it makes sense for the MCU we follow having an openness to the multiverse.

The main issue boils down to, if everyone else is able to travel to and from 616, why can't Kang?


ok, I did a little research and apperantly MOM ended differently than I thought and Christine from 838 didn't send then back home, America did. Even then, it's still possible AND strange still did it by accident in no way home

    This is why i’m not a fan of the whole multi-verse stuff.

    My head cannon for this is that, up until Loki’s season one, there’s only one universe, the sacred timeline, then with the death of HWR, the multiverse exploded into existence, everywhere all at once. Hence suddenly Janet having a life full of experiences down in the quantum realm, multiple Spider-Men, MoM etc…

    I know you can find holes theory but damn it works for me 🤣

    Due to the TVA existing outside of time, Loki’s destruction of the Temporal Loom affects the universe retroactively. Since the loom was destroyed, there has now *always* been a multiverse. It is a literal, canonical retcon.

    Here’s a question that may or may not blow your mind. How do we know we’ve been following the sacred timeline?
    I much prefer the idea that there’s nothing special about our timeline compared to the others.
