The post-credits scene of Ant-Man & the Wasp: Quantumania proves why Kang is the most dangerous villain that there is for the MCU. The arrival of the Council of Kangs just shows how powerful he is as a being, regardless of the universe or timeline where he came from.
He Who Remains once said in Loki, "If you think I'm evil, well, just wait 'til you meet my variants. He wasn't wrong when he said that, in fact, controlling the main timeline through the Time Variance Authority has kept his variants at bay, a villain so vile that could have been stopped had Sylvie gave up on her vengeance.
