What If…? Season 1 Episode 5 – What Did You Think?!
Warning: There are spoilers ahead for the fifth episode of What If…?
In the comics, the Marvel Zombies can actually speak and occasionally feel remorse. However, that wasn’t the case for their big MCU debut. Although the zombified heroes could still use all of their skills. The fifth episode of What If…? has hit Disney+, and we want to know what the Superhero Hype community thinks about it! This post is a place for all of you to leave your own reviews, thoughts, or anything else you want to say about What If…? season 1 episode 5.
This story took an alternate path from both Avengers: Infinity War and Ant-Man and the Wasp. In the Quantum Realm, Hank Pym was reunited with his wife, Janet van Dyne. However, she was infected by a zombie-like virus which they brought back to Earth. Scott Lang was the first to fall, and the Avengers succumbed soon after. That’s also why Bruce Banner found a nearly empty New York when he came crashing through the window of Doctor Strange’s Sanctum Sanctorum.
After a close encounter with Zombie Iron Man, Zombie Doctor Strange, and even Zombie Wong, Bruce found survivors. Or rather, they found him. Hope van Dyne led a group that included Spider-Man, Bucky Barnes, Sharon Carter, Happy Hogan, Okoye, and Scott’s friend, Kurt, for some reason. Together, they discovered that someone claimed to have found a cure for the zombie plague. However, they lost several of their party along the way.
Eventually, they found Vision hiding out at a compound, and he explained that the Mind Stone was the potential cure. T’Challa was also there as Vision’s prisoner, and he revealed that Vision had tricked them. Vision was feeding survivors to Zombie Wanda Maximoff after luring them into a trap. Vision later felt remorse for his actions, and he sacrificed himself to give up the Mind Stone. But by the end, only Spidey, T’Challa, and the severed head of Scott survived.
While the Mind Stone may cure the zombie plague, Zombie Thanos was waiting for them outside of Wakanda. And he had all of the Infinity Stones except one.
