11 Of The Craziest Things That Happened On Episode 1 Of Marvel’s New “What If” Series Now Streaming On Disney Plus

what if marvel series
  1. Agent Carter becomes a super soldier instead of Steve Rogers.
  2. After taking the serum, Peggy comes out looking mighty … um … masculine! What the f*ck Marvel! Like, I get it, but I also don’t get it. None of their other women heroes look like a body builder. But go awf or whatever.
  3. There’s a lot of sexism in this. But I guess that fits the time period? *rolls eyes* Oh and Peggy handles it with class! You’ll see what I mean when you watch it.
  4. Hydra is Hitler’s organization!! Was this always a thing or is this new? I have no clue. Either way I am shocked!
  5. Bucky was taken by Hydra. But y’all probably knew that?
  6. Peggy is now … Captain Carter. So put some respect on my good sis name!
  7. There’s a new suit called the Hydra Stomper? And of course it looks very “Stark made this”-ish.
  8. Not gonna lie here, Peggy … sorry Captain Carter is JUST as reckless as when Captain America was a man. And I kinda like it! They let her be just as braggadocious as the men were.
  9. Peggy and Steve are together! Is that even crazy?
  10. The monster the Red Skull had ended up killing him. And I haven’t laughed so hard at that kind of irony since … well since a few days ago when I watched The Suicide Squad.
  11. Peggy and Steve pulled a page from the Queen and Slim handbook, and planned a date mid battle! Like sis can you focus! Dickmitized much? Sheesh!

But yeah … I think that’s everything you need to know.

If you haven’t seen What If episode 1 yet and you’re NOT a hardcore Marvel fan, read this before watching it. Like ASAP.

Episode 1 was honestly okay. It grew on me after my brain slowly adjusted, but I honestly wasn’t emotionally attached to this story. I haven’t seen all the Marvel films, so I was completely lost for this episode, and I didn’t enjoy it as much as I thought I would. Although I do love the idea of Captain America being a woman.

However … now that Cap is Black, I’m good. Take me back to THAT reality please! Thanks.
