I wonder when Kang turns up he will kill the Timekeepers like he did in Avengers: Forever

Time-travellers going back in time to change the future in comics are no different than War Machine suggesting to go back in time to kill Thanos as a baby. The only difference is that other time-travellers seldom have a smart Hulk to tell them it doesn't work like that.

It's easy to miss this kind of nuance since we have an out-of-universe perspective of what transpires in the comics, but interally there's no reason why people have to understand the mechanics of time-travel unless they're Kang or Doctor Doom.

Which begs the question, what's the point of time travel if not to go back to make changes to the past, which would render the act of doing so pointless if it has no effect to the reality that you're trying to alter. At that point an organization like the TVA would make sense as it would constantly be cleaning up the messes as all these alternate timelines are being created by people attempting to change the past. As you said, there's no way for any of us to know and from our perspective it's still only theoretical, so the storyline potentials are literally endless and boundless. That's why I believe this show was made, in part, to shore up any loose ends or inconsistencies in the MCU that people have pointed out thus far and also be put in place to explain future issues that may arise in MCU. I guarantee, there will be at least a few hiccups when they attempt to weave the X-Men and FF into the MCU, and nothing like a little time travel, with some help from the Multiverse, to cure those ills.

Ya, it's gone back and forth, just with no consistency. I know the rules they wanted to set up, but they rarely stuck by them, and certainly not 100% of the time. How many times have time traveling character's plans been based on "undoing" something in the past to "fix" the future? Bishop, Cable, Kang? That's comics. My point is that I don't think the MCU is gonna be able to just ignore the rules they set up like the comics do. Now here's the fix. What if the MCU version of the TVA has always been behind the scenes "cleaning up" or "removing" all the alternate time streams that are created when a character thinks they are "changing" the past? Because, as the theory goes, if time travel will ever exist, then it's always existed. I'm totally down with that idea, and it would actually create some leeway for time travel stories in the future.

I'm not ripping the show by any means (not yet anyway), but I think my original point was just because the TVA was created many, many, many years ago does not mean the show based on it didn't "rip off" elements from shows like Quantum Leap.

But the time-travel rules they used for Endgame are pretty much the same as the rules in the comics. These rules have been broken from time to time, but a time-traveller being able to jump in time within their own timeline is an exception, not the norm. The comics have even had to come up with ways to explain the instances of time-travel within the same timeline.

Didn't comic book Age of Ultron ignore these rules tho? Especially when Logan went back to prevent his past time traveling self from doing something to Hank Pym.

TVA was established in comics about 3 years before Quantum Leap ever aired (and nearly 30 years before Umbrella Academy), and time travel/alternate timelines are a staple in Marvel and DC comics  (well before Umbrella Academy or Quantum Leap). Might not be for you, but hardly a rip off.

Well, just because the TVA was established in the comics many years ago does not mean that the production of this show based on the TVA, which started production a few years after Umbrella Academy and many years after Quantum Leap, could not have ripped off elements from both those shows. One major differences in the TVA is that in the comics, changing something in the past does change the present, but the Infinity Saga blasted that out of the water in the MCU, so technically the comics version and the MCU version are completely different. I'm also of the opinion that the show looks to have strong elements of both shows (more so from QL), but I don't necessarily call it a bad thing. I mean there's only so many directions you can take a theoretical concept like time travel so they're all gonna resemble each other in one way or another.

I'm interested in how Marvel Studios plans to work around these new time travel rules they've set for themselves. My feelings are that they're gonna use the same cop out they used in End Game and make sure each show or the end of each assignment goes back to the exact moment it began, effectively changing the past without creating a new future. It still doesn't make sense by the rules they themselves created, but they made it work once so they can make it work again.

So, some sorta "Quantum leap/umbrella academy' ripoff?  Time traveling Loki? No gracias.
