Usually Scott is my favorite character, but, yeah, kinda wanted to throw him down a garbage chute shortly after he came back. I'd be lying if I said I didn't enjoy Peter's How-To video, though.

I've never cared for Marvel Zombies either. But at least they checked off that box so now we don't have to touch the concept again.

But they will touch it again, though.

I mean, I'm no fan of it either, but Marvel wouldn't keep going back to the "Our characters are now zombies" well if it didn't sell loads of comics and merchandise.

The dude is just a head. It's either the jokes or a ungodly amount of screaming and wailing.

I thought it was pretty good. Basically every episode of What If? has been a bit off, but not so much that I didn't enjoy it. I felt the same about this one. I liked the group they got together. Kurt, Happy, Sharon, and Okoye were good additions who don't usually get much time in the spotlight. Zombies are always kind of silly, but they had a lot of fun with it.

Surprised this hasn't been posted yet:

Hawkeye coming Nov 24, seems to have a sort of Christmas vibe, and though she isn't explicitly named we do see Kate Bishop in action.

Kinda surprised there's no sign of a certain Widow as the ending of Black Widow seemed to imply their paths would cross sooner rather than later, but maybe that's either being kept secret or saved for another series/movie?

It's not a secret, they're just not putting everything in the trailer.

I like the tone of this. They're definitely taking the right comic influences for a Hawkeye show.

Caught up with What If... liked the Dr. Strange episode fine, it was fun to look at, was predicatbly non-plussed by Zombies. I get that the only way to have a Zombie story be any fun is to be a bit blase about death, but I don't really want that with a bunch of characters I've gotten to really like in other stories. The show tries to have it both ways which just results in the aforementioned whiplash between sad and quippy.

If you have subtitles on it names her as Kate explicitly.
I wasn't expecting a lot out of this, but if they manage to get a feel close to the Matt Fraction run (which it looks like they're going for at least in part) that can only help.

Well, they're outright using the Fraction-era logo, so expectations have gone from very low to very high :)

Also, hey! It's Charlie from the Bumblebee movie!

Sure would be nice for one of these What If episodes to not end in either everyone dying, and/or rampant character assassination.

Looks like the sweatsuit mafia from the Fraction/Aja run is making an appearance!

My one-sentence review of Shang-Chi;

"Every time I sit down to watch a movie, *this* is the experience I'm hoping to have"

If you gave me a hundred guesses who the final boss was going to be, I wouldn't have said The Dweller in Darkness

I'm not very familiar with that character. So, while I understood that it probably is some big mystical baddie in the comics, probably belonging to the magic/martial arts wing of Museum of Marvel, its lack of, well, character or discernible personality made it kind of like "big evil RPG dragon takes over as final boss." Not exactly a Necron, but also something that kinda came out of left field?

I enjoyed the movie nonetheless, though I'm aware it's fairly divisive as a work of representation.

No, that's... pretty much the same; it's just usually an octopus instead of a dragon, and he's more of a Dr. Strange bad guy

What if... the writers threw all kinds of logic out the window to do pure, nonstop college comedy and slapstick and threw in a suddenly serious cliffhanger to make quota but c'mon, it's still funny.

I mean it didn't make ANY sense but it was still the most entertaining episode so far :p
