Warning: spoilers!

Disney+ has released the Loki season finale and after a wild ride, fans finally found out who the man behind the curtain is. 

Or, as he is referred to in the episode, "He Who Remains". 

In his first appearance in the role, Jonathan Majors is revealed as Kang.

Or is he Kang? Yes, and no.

In the original comic book, Kang the Conqueror is actually Nathaniel Richards, a descendant of Reed Richards in an alternate future of the 30th Century.

Nathaniel would discover a time machine made by his ancestor, and use it to travel to the distant past.

For each instance that Kang traveled back or forward in time, an alternate version of himself chose different paths.

One variant of Kang would eventually become Immortus, the Master of Time. 

His primary task is to ensure nothing prevents the Time Keepers from coming into being while also fixing the problems his Kang versions caused.

At the end of the Loki TV series, Loki and Sylvie discover that the Time Keepers are just a fabrication and the only person who created the TVA is "He Who Remains".

This is revealed to be the character portrayed by Jonathan Majors. However, it is incorrectly referred to by casual fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Kang.

More accurately, this is the MCU version of Immortus.
