As usual, for those of you who may not have watched the Marvel What If episode 8 series , be careful because this discussion contains SPOILERS .
I can’t believe that the Marvel What If series has 2 more episodes left. And the first episode of the last 2, aired on September 29, 2021. And the title of What If Episode 8 is, “What If….Ultron Won?” .
Vision Fusion Ultron
Well, from the title of this episode, it’s clear that this plot focuses on the modified plot of the MCU film, Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015) and a little inspiration from Avengers Endgame (2019). This episode invites us to wonder what if in Avengers: Age of Ultron , Ultron managed to merge with Vision.
And the answer to that assumption is revealed in a gokil in What If Episode 8 . Specifically, Ultron fused with Vision , making him an invincible figure. He and his troops, destroy all the world ( multiverse ) that he came.
Even Captain Marvel (Alexandara Daniels) can’t beat this combined AI android. Because of all this, only Black Widow (Lake Bell) and Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), the Avengers team were left.
The two of them then tried hard to find a way how to defeat Ultron. Finally, both of them find the answer through the former Captain America villain , Armin Zola (Toby Jones).
More specifically, Zola, who is now in the form of a computer algorithm, is transferred into one of his Ultorn drones . So from here, Zola must find out the whereabouts of Ultron’s real body and figure. But unfortunately when doing the detection, Zola couldn’t do it. This is because Ultron is not in the permanent world. Then where is Ultron?
Ultron VS The Watcher
Turns out he’s in The Watcher’s (Jefffrey Wright) observation room. Yes, for the first time through What If Episode 8 , Ultron became the only character in this series who managed to see and enter The Watcher’s “unseen” headquarters.
The Watcher and Ultron also fought very fiercely. Unfortunately, even though The Watcher had tried half to death, Ultron still managed to outperform him. Feeling unable, he goes to the Strange Supreme (Benedict Cumberbatch) confinement universe .
Watchers then for the first time, will not only ask Strange for help, but will also violate his main principle, not to interfere with what is happening in his universe / earth .
Then will Strange Supreme and The Watcher be able to stop Ultron? Well , we will know the answer next week in the last episode of this series which will air on October 6, 2021.
The conclusion of What If Episode 8, this episode is an episode that has a very high level of significance. In addition, it is possible that it will have a very large effect on the entire MCU shutter. Specifically, What If Episodes 8 and 9 later, will also provide major changes to one or more of the Phase 4 films.
