> 5) Psychologically, they are very different. Stark hates warfare, and made it clear during his brief tenure as Secretary of Defense that if he could in any way make it possible, "Nobody need die in war ever again". His entire motivation during Civil War was AVOIDING all-out war at all costs. That could not be more different from Kang´s philosophy - he loves battle above all other things.

Yeah, that's the key thing. Stark tries to control everything. While he does do violent things, it is always with the motive of preventing even greater violence. Even at his worst, his violence is surgical. Meanwhile Kang will deliberate limit himself to make things even more competative so he can enjoy the chaos and combat.

Stark invented anti-She-Hulk nanotech so he could beat her as quietly and safely as possible. Kang refused to go back to the future and come back instantly with an army built up over years in the future, because it would have been an I-WIN button and ended the bloody battles he enjoys.

In many ways they are the opposite. Stark will go overboard on friends in the name of control and peace. Kang will self-limit himself in the name of chaos.

All of those are valid points, assuming that Kang's history is accurate, and that he and/or Immortus are telling the truth. It seems to me that this theory could tie into the formation of The Illuminati, and the Initiative. I never said they were identical or even the same person right now. But the evolution is the story.

Wouldn't it be cool? That one of Marvel's mainstay heroes is actually THE mastermind villian behind everything?
