In the post-credits scene of Ant-Man & the Wasp: Quantumania, the Council of Kangs convened and everyone finally sees the different variants of Jonathan Majors' character. One of them is the one who looks the eldest, Immortus. Who is he and how will he play a role in the future of the MCU?
Who is Immortus in Ant-Man & the Wasp: Quantumania?
Ant-Man & the Wasp: Quantumania post-credits scene just revealed the many variants that Jonathan Majors would all portray in the MCU, the Council of Kangs and one of the leaders of the variants is Immortus, an older variant of Kang who seems to be highly respected among all of them.
Immortus has a raspy voice and wears a purple and green garb, with blue skin, sports a tall headpiece, and his eight-pointed star in the middle of his suit. Looking at how the others answered to him, he is highly respected. Immortus is the one who called out all the Kang variants to meet.
In the comics, Immortus is introduced in Avengers #10 (1963) as a separate time-manipulating villain but it was later clarified that Immortus was actually another variant of Kang the Conqueror, making sense considering how powerful the character is as a villain.
Born in Earth-6311, Immortus is Nathaniel Richards of the said timeline. He is the future self of the variants of Kang, the one who reached the old age, and he has a, generally, more peaceful outlook on everything else as compared to the other variants.
Immortus is personally taught by the Time-Keepers, a time-travelling group from the end of time and the last of their existence, and he became their agent. Immortus became the ruler of Limbo, and the Custodian of Time.
In the MCU, it is Immortus who called upon all of the Kang variants because "they," possibly referring to the Avengers, are starting to get into the multiverse. Immortus showed the others the flowing sacred timeline where incursions are happening here and there. Immortus then claims, "We're late."

This is actually something that has been mentioned by Kang the Conqueror to Janet. Kang said that he has seen what happens at the end of time, endless incursions, and it is all because the Council of Kangs played with each of the realities like children.
Immortus seems to have a wider knowledge among the three of them and his capability to call all of the variants of Kang means that they respect him, or a call from him has to have some weight, thus, they respect him.
