Marvel series What If? has indeed asked many questions . . . Mostly, the series poses possible outcomes, if things has taken a different turn in the MCU. For example, the most recent episode saw a zombie invasion. This video assesses MCU Easter-eggs and other important references. But what you won’t get are the unique circumstances May The Verse Be With You presents here, exclusively . . .
What if Thor were never Thor,
or Tony Stark stayed selling guns
Bruce Banner minus gamma,
S.H.I.E.L.D. and Hydra not at war?
Let’s say Hawkeye was not good,
that his arrows were shot with hate;
or, can you imagine this:
Blade, without vampire blood . . .
Groot – but not of leaf and root
Gamora’s skin with polka dots;
Drax the Duck, Howard the Drax –
Rocket wearing Black Panther’s suit!
Steve Rogers – the enemy –
Bucky Barnes of Jotunheim,
and Loki being born on Earth –
Stephen Strange born Nick Fury . . .
Okoye crowned Wakanda’s king
Peter Quill born a mad Titan;
Scott Lang just a criminal –
Spiderman – without web-slinging!
