As we wrote back when season 1 first aired, Ravonna’s place in the comics starts out with her being a princess from the 40th century whose empire is conquered by Kang, before she eventually falls in love with her conqueror. Due to comic book shenanigans, she is temporarily killed and while she is dead, Kang looks for a way to save her. Eventually, the conqueror is made to choose between saving Ravonna’s life or getting powers to kill the Avengers, choosing the latter.
Of course, Ravonna is magically revived, and when she finds out Kang betrayed her for power, she sets out to fight both the Avengers and the Fantastic Four, amassing enough power to defeat Kang and take over his whole empire.
While the Ravonna we meet in “Loki” season 1 is not the same Ravonna from the comics, there is still a way forward. Granted, season 2 already finished filming and there was probably not a lot of time to change course between the recent allegations and now. But there is still time before phase six brings the “Kang Dynasty” and “Secret Wars” in 2026 and 2027 to make Ravonna the true conqueror.
