What If…? Season 2 Review

What If...? Season 2 (Marvel)

Things have gotten a little twisted in the Multiverse and we get to see the stories in the second season of Marvel Studios’ What If…? on Disney Plus. This season forms part of Phase 5 of the Multiverse Saga in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Review (no spoilers)

The latest season of What If touches on most of the movies and content from the first four phases with a subtle Phase 5-related tease…sorry, not spoiling any juicy details. The story continues with the multiverse theme and we get to experience how the story could have gone in a complete different direction. The stories that are explored are a real creative combination of both new elements as well as current story arcs that come from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

If you don’t listen carefully you could easily miss some of our favorite references in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Many of the original cast returns to voice our favorite heroes and villains.

It really takes you back to the Infinity Saga and makes you excited for what could potentially be new events that might occur in the Multiverse Saga, thinking back to how we got to experience Captain Peggy Carter in Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness. A brand new character is also introduced in What If …? Season 2, a character I hope will make a turn in the live-action adaptation of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

As always, the way this series ends is always spectacular and filled with emotion.

Here is the titles of each episode in Season 2:

  • Episode 1: “What If… Nebula Joined the Nova Corps?”
  • Episode 2: “What If… Peter Quill Attacked Earth’s Mightiest Heroes?”
  • Episode 3: “What If… Happy Hogan Saved Christmas?”
  • Episode 4: “What If… Iron Man Crashed into the Grandmaster?”
  • Episode 5: “What If… Captain Carter Fought the Hydra Stomper?”
  • Episode 6: “What If… Kahhori Reshaped the World?”
  • Episode 7: “What If… Hela Found the Ten Rings?”
  • Episode 8: “What If… the Avengers Assembled in 1602?”
  • Episode 9: “What If… Strange Supreme Intervened?”

I highly recommend watching Season 1 of What If…? to get the background and gist of the Guardians of the Multiverse.

A 5 out of 5 rating for What If…? What If…? takes us on a journey through the multiverse, leaving us hungry for more stories, more time and more adventure.

It makes me ponder the question…“What If… there are more stories to tell?”

What story would you like to see in What If?

X-Men ’97 Review | Nostalgic, Epic & Marvelous!

Published

on

X-Men '97 (Disney)

Get ready for action-packed adventure, many surprise cameos and a storyline that takes

Plot

A band of mutants use their uncanny gifts to protect a world that hates and fears them; they’re challenged like never before, forced to face a dangerous and unexpected new future.

X-Men ’97 (Disney)

Review

X-Men ’97 is a revival of the classic 1990s animated television series. The storyline picks up directly after the events of the original series, maintaining continuity and preserving the beloved elements that made the original a hit show back in the day. Many of the original voice cast members have returned, including Cal Dodd as Wolverine, Lenore Zann as Rogue, George Buza as Beast, Alison Sealy-Smith as Storm and Adrian Hough as Kurt Wagner/Nightcrawler, which adds a layer of originality and contributes to the overall nostalgia of the television show​. Here I’m feeling like a little kid again, watching the show on a Saturday morning. I was 7 years old when it was on television in the early mornings, and it still brings back fond memories.

There were a number of new stars who joined the show such as Ray Chase who replaced Norm Spencer as Cyclops, Jennifer Hale who replaced Catherine Disher as Jean Grey, Holly Chou who replaced Alyson Court as Jubilee, A.J. LoCascio as Gambit, Matthew Waterson as Magneto, J.P. Karliak as Morph, Isaac Robinson-Smith as Bishop, Ross Marquand as Professor Charles Xavier and Gui Agustini as Roberto da Costa/Sunspot.

X-Men ’97 (Disney)

The series starts off in a world where the X-Men grapple with the loss of Professor Charles Xavier. Amidst all the chaos and uncertainty, Magneto rises to the occasion and becomes the new leader of the X-Men. This provides additional drama and the team dynamics is frequently tested with the new leadership. While dealing with the new leadership dynamics the X-Men finds themselves still dealing with people who would stop at nothing to end all mutants. The storyline doesn’t hold back on the action sequences and themes such as grief, loss and acceptance are touched on throughout the series.

The trailer of the show doesn’t spoil anything for the viewer, and I highly encourage you to watch every intro and try to spot any new changes. The show provides many cameos and easter eggs, keeping my hopes alive of a potential crossover.

The story ends with a twist, leaving you hungry for the next season, and as any Marvel movie or television show would have it, a mid-credits scene to whet your appetite for what’s to come. If you are new to X-Men you can still jump in and watch the television series, but I highly recommend watching the original series to get you up to date with most of the lore and history of the X-Men.

X-Men ’97 keeps the legacy of our favorite mutants alive with a well-written story that is filled with emotion, surprises and promises of more adventures.

Thank you Beau DeMayo for an eXcellent story! I rate this show a 5 out of 5!

Will we skip the intro song? No! I don’t think we will. Make sure to catch the show on Disney Plus!
