Overall I give it a 6 out of 10…

They really should’ve upped the runtime of each episode and used the first season to keep each story contained to their own universes…Could've teased the Ultron angle at the end…Then they could’ve used season 2 to build in each story and work towards the big Endgame style showdown with Ultron at the end…

As is I really felt zero emotion for just about every character there except for Strange Supreme and oddly enough his episode was the one with the most character depth and development…

@vegetaray - Also…Wasn’t the Spider Man from the Zombie-verse supposed to be part of this team? Or did I just imagine that somewhere along the line…I could swear I saw some leak pics or promo stuff with him assembled with the team…

And thanks for bringing up Gamora. Why didn't they cut her from the episode if her episode wasn't even included? Remember how they didn't have much for captain marvel to do in endgame despite building her up for that movie? Well at least we had the set up story to tell us who she was. Now we just have this weird gamora variant who can destroy infinity stones coming in out of nowhere. Wtf? In an overstuffed story, just don't include the one you didn't have an episode for.

1. I didn't even connect the dots that the future Widow ended up in was the one from episode 3. I definitely wanted to see more of Good Cap, Bad Cap, but I get it. That's actually a nice cap to put on that timeline narratively speaking (given that Widow was so integral to that episode) but everything in What If is playing at a slightly higher speed than the story is built for, so it didn't hit home in that moment

2. I figured the Sakaar Stark episode was pushed to S2 because it didn't impact this season at all, but seeing them just drop into that timeline with zero context was incredibly bizarre. It really hit home how much the pandemic had impacted things if they were willing to release the show with that sort of glaring hole in it

3. This finale was good, but it actually made that Killmonger episode worse in retrospect. I left that episode thinking it was going to be circled back to for the finale in order to show the impact T'Challa's speech had on Killmonger, but in reality he kinda just took his own twisted ideology and bumped it up to multiversal levels the moment his opportunity came up.

4. More Captain Carter, that is all

Overall, I'd give this show a 7/10.
GhostDog - 10/6/2021, 7:52 AM
The whole show felt rushed but had a few gems in T’Challa Star-Lord, Watcher versus Ulton episode and the Dark Doc Strange
Mrtoke - 10/6/2021, 9:46 AM
@BlackBeltJones - those were the only good episodes IMO plus Pym murdering the avengers
GhostDog - 10/6/2021, 9:47 AM
@Mrtoke - yea that one was cool too
IronMan616 - 10/6/2021, 7:52 AM
So this is the only episode where Tony doesn't die. And why didn't the Watcher recruit him too? Eh, just as well, they would've found a way to kill him. Best to leave a version alive.
bkmeijer2 - 10/6/2021, 12:26 PM
@IronMan616 - as soon as I saw the name Mick Wingart in the opening credits I prepared for the worse, but I'm kinda dissappointed now they didn't end up killing him as to keep the joke going

Glad it's finally over
TheWalkingCuban - 10/6/2021, 8:05 AM
Yeah that last one I was like what are they even doin here
cocaegelo - 10/6/2021, 9:24 AM
Killmonger killed Rhodey too! hahaha never forget!
dracula - 10/6/2021, 9:32 AM
with a rushed finale and hit or miss season. DC animation still reigns supreme
heyy1 - 10/6/2021, 4:02 PM
@dracula - i didnt get into the animated films or young justice yet, but Batman TAS and Justice League unlimited are some of the best cartoons period.
dracula - 10/6/2021, 4:23 PM
@heyy1 - 100%

you should check out Young Justice and Harley Quinn

If you want to check out some of the animated films, check out the new animated universe.

Also Justice League VS Fatal Five, its a continuation of JLU. There is also batman and harley quinn that continues batman the animated series, but its not good.

have you read the batman the adventure continues comic. introduces dcau Deatstroke, Azrael, Red Hood and The Court Of Owls

I think that some of these cliffhangers were addressed/dealt with fine, but others I would have liked to have seen more play out. For example, I would have loved to have seen more of the all out epic war between the new Avengers and the Asgardians from ep 3. And as much as I disliked the Killmonger episode, I would have liked to have seen some of the lead up to Pepper and Shuri working together to hunt Killmonger down.
Yeah, I don't think we need to see anymore of Party Thor again; I liked him and his episode a lot actually, but his story felt very much wrapped up.

All this being said, I'm glad that everything very nicely wrapped up with T'Challa Star-Lord. It would have been a shame if something with Chadwick had been left open-ended and unfinished in this show, and that was a great way to wrap his story up.

Of all the characters introduced, the one that I really want to see in live action is Supreme Strange. Of course we have plenty of rumors about Captain Carter showing up. If Chadwick was still alive, I would have wanted to see his Star-Lord in live action. I also like Spidey and Antman from the Zombie episode. Otherwise, there aren't really other characters I'd want to carry over. Ultron Vision was awesome, and it would have been great to have seen some of that translated to live action.

Also, question, but where did the arrow with Zola's code come from? I thought they already downloaded his code into an Ultron Bot (and where did the bot go?), so the arrow being there was a little confusing.
bkmeijer2 - 10/6/2021, 12:20 PM
@HeavyMetal4Life - yeah that didn't make sense to me either. But there are more small inconsistencies in What If, so I kinda gave up on paying attention to them
bkmeijer2 - 10/6/2021, 12:19 PM
Seeing Gamora and Tony really was awkward indeed. They could even just scrapped Gamora out of the episode and it wouldn't have made a difference.

Anyway, I like we got an ending to most, even the Lemurian Star one. Makes sense it isn't Project Insight, but actually another Winter Soldier type situation with Steve.
bkmeijer2 - 10/6/2021, 12:24 PM
Also, that Killmonger twist was pretty bad-ass. Too bad we can't see him get defeated in his own universe though.
Typhoon20 - 10/6/2021, 12:19 PM
Just came here to vent my disappointment. They really wasted Strange here could have been a great 1v1 kinda like Strange v Thanos. Not to mention they wasted Thor as well. All for what ? All the other heroes were far below their level so it didn't feel like a super team. To me you have Strange as the leader followed by Thor and then there's a massive gap with the rest. Didn't feel believable. The way Carter, Widow and StarLord defeated him basically dunno that was disappointing. Cop out. Ah well, at least we're done. I'll probably skip season 2 and only look for reviews for must watch episodes and skip the rest. To me episode 3 was AMAZING. Nothing else came close to that, unfortunately.
bkmeijer2 - 10/6/2021, 12:25 PM
@Typhoon20 - initially I wondered why Killmonger was there, but in the end everybody ended up serving a purpose. I guess that's the reason why they were there (even if that's kind of a lame explanation)
