Episode seven of the Marvel animated series on Disney Plus, What would happen if…?, is the lightest, funniest and most crazy of the whole anthology. But also, the one that has closed with a scene that opens the doors to the most sinister moment of the entire season. After Thor managed to straighten the wrongs of his great intergalactic party, he has met a ultron variant. One that also bears the body of Vision and what appears to be all the Infinity Stones.
Until now, the series had insisted on its anthological quality. Especially for its aim to show the possibilities of the multiverse to a new level. But it is clear that the end goal of all stories is directed to a conclusion. One that can be seen both in the mid-season trailer and in various leaks about the plot of the first season.
According to various rumors, the show will culminate its first episodes with the creation of the Avengers of the Multiverse, assembled by Uatu. And apparently the final scene of chapter seven, with the arrival of Ultron and an army of robots in his image and the like, makes up the theory.
Everything seems to indicate that Captain Carter, the Supreme Doctor Strange, StarLord T’Challa, Thor and at least two other characters, will form a team. The mission? face an all-out threat that apparently has just made its appearance. Ultron, in a version in which he managed to take over Vision’s body and also collect the Infinity Stones, could be. Of course, the big question from fans lies in how the super advanced robot managed to triumph and in which line would he find himself.
The great villain of What would happen if…?
To understand a little about the origin of the dangerous threat that the Multiverse Avengers will have to face, you must first analyze their history. The Ultron that closes episode seven belongs to a timeline in which the robot managed to transfer its consciousness to Vision’s body; from that fact it follows that could have beaten the Avengers from his timeline; Also, that he had the opportunity to go in search of the Infinity Stones.
In fact, in the chapter there is an immediate reference: In the middle of Thor’s great party, someone extends the Infinity Gauntlet to him. There is not enough time in the scene to analyze if he is carrying the stones, but if so, it would indicate something else: Ultron is a multiversal traveler. Even more complex is the fact that by possessing the Mind Stone (which he wears on his forehead), was able to establish the origin and power of the rest of the gems. In particular, how to combine them. Which makes him an enemy of great importance and unknown.
If this is the case, there are several things to keep in mind. In the comics, the Infinity Stones can only be used in their home universe; lose their power when crossing storms into parallel universes. In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it happens in the same way and that is demonstrated in Loki. Now, Ultron can use the stones to open portals and send his army to conquer other places. Which could explain the final chapter of chapter seven of What If …?
Anything else to keep in mind?
Also, if we stick to the comics, Vision’s body can absorb the power of the Infinity Stones. So it is surely completely invulnerable. Although he cannot use the stones in other timelines, he cannot be injured or destroyed. And in his timeline he is virtually invulnerable and almighty.
This small caveat of the use from the consciousness of the Infinity Stones, may explain the surprise of The Watcher at seeing the arrival of Ultron in What if …?. It is quite possible that the villain used the stones to erase his timeline to watchers of the Watchers race. Is this the definitive motive that makes Uatu follow the tradition of his comic book version and intervene in events? Most likely, yes.
