    Excited. This was my gateway into comics. Please let them have Uatu doing the opening narration.

    Regrettably they probably won't be able to do "What If the Watcher saved the Multiverse?" due to Loki bogarting the TVA and the Time Keepers.

    I'll watch it for sure, but I'm just that excited for it. Maybe it will change once I see it.

    I think that this show has so much potential...

    There are so many great What If...? stories from Marvel of yesteryear...

    What if Uncle Ben never died?

    What if Victor Von Doom was aboard Reed's ship?

    What if Professor X was assassinated?

    What if Thor remained a frog?

    What if the symbiote bonded with the Molecule Man?

    What if Zen La wasn't spared?

    The possibilities are, literally, endless...

    Let's not forget What If's greatest success...Mayday Parker, aka Spider-Girl.

    More about how she was given he shaft in the comics. Of course her never featuring her in any media outside of the comics dosn't help either.

    What if the X-Men lost Inferno? That'd make for a pretty good Halloween episode.

    Sadly I think Disney may not be interested in doing the Punisher, which is a shame because he had some good stories. "What If Venom had possessed the Punisher?" and "What if the Punisher's Family hadn't been killed?" remain a pair of my favorites.

    Yes, and:

    What if the Punisher actually killed Spider-Man?

    What if Steve Rogers stayed frozen?

    What if Gwen Stacy lived?

    What if the Hulk never crash landed on Sakaar?

    What if Magus infected the earth?

    What if mutants weren't hated?

    What if the Brood won?

    What if everyone knew Spider-Man's identity?

    Most excited about the Marvel Zombies episode because I know it will never happen in the MCU live action films. And I know it will never get as horrifying and graphic as I want it to get in its animated Disney version but just that it even exists is a feat unto itself...

    Episode 1 was awesome!!

    The choreography was incredible and the action was non-stop!

    Great animation too... I can't wait for the next episode. I kinda wish that they didn't have a trailer for this, because it would be so fun jumping in completely oblivious...

    The second episode was almost as good as the first one. This is really shaping up to be my favorite of the MCU shows!

    are we even sure an animated What If show is a good idea? Especially for people that never read an issue of the old What If comic series during the 1980s and all of 1990s?

    I was a teenager in the mid 1990s and i loved Volume 2 of What If.

    the new What If show caters more towards more for people that only know of the Avengers related movies and Guardians movies.

    Ill pass on the show since i have no interest.

    Ill just stick with reading and re-reading old issues of What If

    By that logic what is the point of adapting anything comic related into the MCU?

    It's pretty simple the show is part of the MCU, it's applying the What If? concept to the MCU. If you don't like the MCU then fair enough, but you seem a bit confused over what exactly the show is.

    It doesn't cater more more the movie fans, it caters solely for the movie fans, which is a far larger fanbase than the comics (and likely includes most of the comic fans too). It's not going to include animated versions of what ifs based on comic events.

    As for the series itself.. i don't care for the voice of Uatu. Lacks the gravitas or mystique that I'd want.

    Episode 1 was fine I guess, but sorta bored me a tad.

    Episode 2 I liked a lot

    Well thats what the What If show is anyway? it caters more towards people that only watch the stupid movies and the What If Show caters more involving the movies.

    I prefer the old What If comic books.

    1990s What If had the best stuff anyway such as Dr Doom becoming sorcerer Supreme, Hulk killed Wolverine, Barbara Ketch becoming Ghost Rider instead of Danny Ketch.

    and even though I never read the original Operation Storm story arc whatever it was in the old Avengers comic, i did enjoy reading the What If alternate story arc 2 parter of Operation Galactic Storm.

    even later in 1997 to 1999, What If got a bit darker with some stuff like turning Peter Parker's mutant kid into a spider monster or whatever. That and Hulk becoming literal radiation or whatever.

    90's Marvel sucked though. The same decade that gave us the rise of Rob Liefeld, the Clone Saga, the worst Avengers uniforms ever ect.
