Marvel’s What If…?- Season 1 Episode 8 Review

Published

on

What If…?  is the latest Marvel Studios project to arrive on our small screens on Disney +.

The animated anthology series, created by Trollhunters: Tales of Arcadia writer A.C. Bradley and Marvel vet Bryan Andrews flips the script on the MCU as following the creation of the multiverse in Loki’s first season finale, What If…? reimagines famous events from the films in unexpected ways.

After last weeks party with Thor, What If…? is back with the penultimate episode which truly showcased some of the best animated sequences that the series has offered this far. Yes we’ve seen some great animation such as the Zombie episode but in episode 8 they really had a chance to go full on with incredible mind boggling visuals. 

This weeks episode continues from that epic cliffhanger aka the entrance of Ultron, and in this Universe we get to find out what would happen if Ultron ultimately uploaded himself into the vibranium body he had made for him in Avengers: Age of Ultron. This moment erases the creation of Vision. 

“The entire Multiverse at your fingertips, and you spent all your time up there? Wow. Isn’t this more fun than just watching? And to be honest, a lot less creepy on your part. The boundaries of the multiverse are irrelevant to beings like you and me. I didn’t evolve by staying inside the lines. Run, watch, it doesn’t matter. From here, I can see everything. No one can stop me now.”

Ultron to the watcher

What If… Ultron Won?

Synopsis

Natasha Romanoff and Clint Barton seek to destroy the killer-robot Ultron following a cataclysmic event.

Review

In Moscow, which is now an apocalyptic wasteland Natasha Romanoff and Clint Barton are the only survivors of the nuclear catastrophe. They spend the remainder of their days outrunning Ultron sentries as they infiltrate KGB archives and attempt to find intel regarding an AI that can take on Ultron.

We are then shown the moments leading up to the catastrophe as Ultron successfully uploads himself into Visions body. Loaded with the mind stone, the AI manages to kill Thor, Bruce Banner, Steve Rogers and once again Tony Stark. Ultron now powerful unleashes Earth’s entire arsenal of nuclear weapons in order to eradicate the planet. 

When Thanos arrives on Earth with the other five Infinity Stones, Ultron effortlessly kills him and takes the stones for himself and eventually becomes aware of the other worlds in the universe. But even that’s not enough for this maniacal android as he senses the Watcher’s presence, for the first time he starts to attack our not so silent observer. The pair battle their way through the Multiverse crashing through multiple realities, including one where Steve Rogers aka Captain America becomes the President of the United States.

Finally we also get to see Jeffrey Wright’s Uatu The Watcher hesitate to intervene as he helps in the sidelines inside the Nexus of All Realities. He certainly puts up a brave fight, and at the right moment escapes after his giant bald head is almost crushed. Realising that he’s out of options, the Watcher asks episode four’s Dark Strange Supreme for help. Lets hope he can stop the Multiverses impending doom. 

The show is certainly positioning itself for the grandest finale as the eighth episode sets up for what seems to be an explosive one indeed . This episode truly introduces us to a great threat in the form of this new version of Ultron and I for one can’t wait to see the Guardians of the Multiverse next week.
