What If...?: Episode 1

1. What If... Captain Carter Were The First Avenger?
1943. In an alternate universe, Peggy Carter stays in the room to watch Steve Rogers get injected with the super soldier serum and averts an enemy ambush, but not without leaving him injured and unable to continue with the process. She jumps in and becomes Captain Carter. Gifted with a shield emblazoned with the Union Jack as well as a costume, she squares off with Red Skull in Berlin to prevent him from utilizing the tesseract in Nazi Germany’s favor. Howard Stark creates an indestructible robotic suit for Steve which they call the Hydra Stomper, powering it up with the tesseract’s energy. Red Skull plans an ambush and captures Steve as a prisoner, retrieving the tesseract to bring forth a tentacled abomination from another world, which quickly devours him. Peggy sacrifices herself to shove the creature back into the portal, taking her along with it. Steve and Howard look on to a super soldier they have just lost. Captain Carter emerges on the other side of the portal, 70 years later, with Nick Fury and Hawkeye welcoming her to the future.

Is this canon? I was thinking that the world Captain Carter ended up in was the actual main MCU storyline, but then again Fury and Hawkeye knew who she was, so it’s probably just the same universe but 70 years ahead into the future. Oh well, first reactions. The title itself is self-explanatory. These are alternate scenarios that usually only get to see the light of day in fan fiction forums. I guess the question now is since Disney is obviously capitalizing on this, are they going to make these canon? Are we going to see Hayley Atwell as Captain Carter in live action with the Avengers in a future MCU film? If yes, which film? They can’t just shoehorn every other character from an alternate universe everywhere, and Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness already seems like it will have a lot going on in it as it is. We will just have to wait and see. So far so good, even the animation is top notch and not weird to watch. The only caveat is how short the episode is given there’s no longer any need for much exposition.

“Her one choice gave birth to a whole new history and gave the multiverse a new hero. As for me, these are my stories. I observe all that transpires here but I do not, cannot, and will not interfere. For I am the Watcher” –Uatu
