I agree but thats ALSO how the What If comic goes. So for those of us familiar with the book thats kind of a little meta thing that gives me a little bit of enjoyment. If they made a direct show adaptation of the comic this is EXACTLY what it would be. Would the show be better if they made 2 hour long episodes that fully explored things? Maybe? Probably? But what it is is fun little peeks into scenarios. And in that respect I enjoy it for what it is.


I used to love What If? When I first got into comics in the early 90s, then after I got back into them in the early 2000s I really enjoyed Exiles because it was essentially a serialized version of What If?.

I am kind of hoping that is what we get out of this. Captain Carter. Repentant evil Dr Strange, Star Lord T'Challa, Zombie Survivor Spiderman. All team up exiles style to fight off Shuma Goratha or whatever that tenticle monster is.


These are my opinions. This is how I feel. Others may feel differently. This needs to be stated for some reason.

Based on the trailers for the series and some of the open credits scenes, my bet on the big bad they team up to fight is
Spoiler:
Successful Ultron. There was a shot of “Vision” wearing Ultron armor that people suspected was Ultron having successfully gotten that body. Additionally we have a brief scene of Captain Carter fighting Ultron Drones and a shot of her standing next to morally ambiguous Strange.

Though is it just my ears, or did Hawkeye sound different in the first bit? Like he was putting on an accent.

Doesn’t really matter, just wondering. Still well up for watching this!

The real question is: did they write a full Rogers: the Musical for verisimilitude's sake, and can we see the the whole uninterrupted thing as an extra episode?

They kind of teased that, but I suspect ultimately it was easier to just go comic accurate on this one rather than come up with a reason why his daughter's name was Kate Bishop.

So that was pretty decent. Killmonger got his win.
Seeing the mother as the General of the Dora Milaje was cool. As was the war rhinos
Attacking wakanda seemed, odd to me, they did not now they where a technological powerhouse and all they knew was a wakandan spear was the one that did it.....but how did they know it was wakandan.

I kind of want to go back and rewatch them all again. I suspect The Watcher is becoming more obvious a spectator as time goes on, discounting his actual interaction with Strange. I don’t think I noticed his silhouette in the background until the third episode, and in this last one you could straight up see his facial expressions as he watched what was happening.

I've noticed that too, definitely seems to be more...defined.

Seizing private assets and invading a completely unknown country on the basis that maybe one of them killed a rich guy is either a huge leap of logic or a snarky bit of satire. At the very least it was one of those "What If comics have to breeze by things" moments that definitely felt odd.

Loved canonizing the Vegeta armor as a result of Killmonger's love of anime though.

Well, he isn't JUST some rich guy. He is the primary inventor, manufacturer, and distributor of military hardware for the united states. It would be like having another country assassinate Oppenheimer right after inventing the nuclear bomb. Our country would be like.. "That was our asset."

Didn't they literally recover t'challas body at the scene of Rhodes death? that was probably the real impetus for war. Tony just added fuel to the fire. They were like "the prince of Wakanda attacked one of our secret deals and now Tony Stark is dead. Wakanda is trying to make a power play."

I’m really enjoying this weeks one. It’s silly. Very very silly, it knows it and it doesn’t care!

Though it is strange to see Thor without a beard.
