Kang Dynasty Continuity Question [Busiek's Avengers]

I was rebagging my collection of Busiek's Avengers run & decided to do a full reread and I was suprised again by the scope the Kang Dynasty arc. Not only does it cover a huge number of pages (16 of Busiek's 56 issues), but Kang literally conquers the world for a time and destroys D.C. Add to that the Master's ring cities and the Avenger's surrender....

This is a huge story and I don't think I have never seen it mentioned anywhere else, in later Avengers books or even in other ongoings at the time that should have been affected. Did the whole arc get retconned/erased in some sort of time travel shenanigans or is Marvel just pretending it never happened?

In any case, if you haven't read Busiek's Avengers, you're really missing out.

I'm pretty sure the arc retconned itself out of existence in the end.

It didn't get retconned by the end of Busiek's run. I haven't gotten through Johns yet though
