Open your eyes! –Sylvie (to Loki after they enchant Alioth, “Loki” Episode 5)
He Who Remains at the Citadel at the End of Time
Sylvie and Loki enter the Citadel after enchanting Alioth. Once they enter, they are greeted by Miss Minutes, who tells them that they are in the Citadel at the End of Time and looking for He Who Remains.
These are references from Thor #245 (1976), the debut of He Who Remains. Interestingly enough, He Who Remains debuted in the comics almost a decade before the TVA makes its first appearance in Thor #371 (1986). Writer Kurt Busiek connected He Who Remains and the TVA in Avengers Forever #9 (1999).
He Who Remains is a KANG Variant
Whoot. We didn’t get Mephistoed or Powerbrokered this time. We got the real deal. The Big Bad is Kang. Well, a version of Kang.
Kang in the comics is a “conqueror of timelines”—meaning he learned a lot about time-conquering from observing the actions of He Who Remains. The MCU simplified the storyline and condensed a lot of comic reading by making He Who Remains and Kang the same character in the Loki series.
About He Who Remains from Marvel.com
He Who Remains assists in the birth of the Time-Keepers, the triad of creatures who become the masters of Immortus and custodians of time, using all of the power which the Time Variance Authority amasses during its existence.
The End is The Beginning
Alone in the Citadel at the End of Time in the Temple of Sleepers, He Who Remains is the last director of the Time Variance Authority (TVA). He creates and guards the Time-Keepers, a trio of beings who are fated to survive the end of eternity known as The Cataclysm. As Time-Keepers, they shall teach those of the next universe cycle how to avoid the errors of the past, and serve as living batteries of chronal power—the energy of the TVA’s eternity of existence.
Kang is, essentially, as Jonathan Majors’ character describes him in Loki Episode 6: he’s a Marvel Comics villain comprised of dozens of identities from a multitude of timelines and dimensions, most of which are despotic warlords who love collecting worlds like they are going out of style.
Kang has also been announced as the villain of 2023’s upcoming Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, and has myriad ties to other Marvel Comics characters. He’s an Avengers villain, he has a teen counterpart who’s a founding member of the Young Avengers, Kang may be an ancestor or descendant of Mr. Fantastic (or an imposter posing as one or the other…who knows with how these Kang variants roll).
Franklin D. Roosevelt High School
Remember that pen in Renslayer’s office in Episode 2? We knew it meant something.
Hunter B-15 leads a group of TVA Hunters to Renslayer’s office in Fremont, Ohio (2018) to show them the truth about who they are and who Renslayer is. She was the principal of Franklin D Roosevelt High School in 2018 before she joins the TVA.

Jonathan Majors’ debut outfit is glorious. While he’s not wearing Kang’s classic comic look (see below), he is wearing an edit of a few Kang and Kang alter-ego outfits.
He has a gold circular symbol on his chest, similar to Immortus (a Kang variant). And the tunic portion of Majors’ look echos Jim Cheung’s representation Kang after he removed his helm.
The Council of Kangs
He Who Remains Kang tells Loki and Sylvie why he created the TVA. He explains that he comes from the 31st century (remember the tool from the 3rd Millenium in Episode 1?) and that a variant of himself discovered the existence of a multiverse of realities stacked on top of one another. Around the same time, other variants in other universes made the same discovery and they figured out how to communicate with each other.
They formed a council and shared information until a few bad Kangs ruined it for everyone. The more conqueror-esque Kangs got aggressive and began the multi-universal war we heard about in the Loki Episode 1, and He Who Remains Kang created the TVA to bring and maintain peace to the universe.
In the comics, The Council of Kangs (and then later the Council of Cross-Time Kangs) featured one Kang variant—the Prime Kang—who sought to destroy every other Kang variant.
Comic Book Kang Look
As Episode 6 comes to a close, we see Sylvie push Loki through a portal back to the TVA, but it’s not the TVA as he has known it. TVA agents are racing around, they bump into Loki with no regard, and Agent Mobius and Hunter B-15 have no idea who he is—and Loki notices that the decor has changed. In place of the three Time Keeper Statues we have previously seen, we have a He Who Remains statue dressed in Kang’s classic comic book look, minus his helmet.
