The What If …? – 84% have surprised fans with their unexpected alternative stories from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but perhaps the most shocking was the last episode, which showed a universe where Ultron made his plans, obtained the body of vibranium (which in the line from the original time it is inhabited by Vision) and took over the Infinity Gems, by snatching them from Thanos himself, in a scene that has given much to talk about.

However, some events in What If…? They seem a bit out of place, and that is the case of the most recent chapter, that as much as it has excited the fans, it is not very clear a detail that has been described by . and some users on social networks as a hole of plot. If they are already here, it is no longer necessary to remind them what is happening, but here it goes: Thanos appears walking through a portal with the Infinity Gauntlet, with five of the six Infinity Stones, and when Ultron sees him, he breaks it apart. half with a lightning bolt coming from his forehead, where the Mind Stone is embedded.
In the original timeline, however, Thanos makes a very great sacrifice to obtain the Soul Stone: taking the life of his most beloved daughter, Gamora. On What If…? the problem is that later we see that Gamora is alive with the Guardians of the Galaxy – 91%, how did the Mad Titan get the Soul Stone without that sacrifice?
Given that Red Skull (the guardian of the Soul Stone) tells those who arrive on the planet Vormir that they must sacrifice the most precious thing they have, and Thanos loved Gamora most of all, it is difficult to understand how he obtained the Stone if it was not as seen in Avengers: Infinity War – 79%; in . they raise the possibility that perhaps there is another way to get hold of the powerful object, but there is no way to know.

If we scratch more at these kinds of inconsistencies, we would find a lot more, but perhaps it is worth sitting down to enjoy the animated series without thinking too much. At least the most recent episode of What If…? could do what Avengers: Age of Ultron it didn’t, give us a really scary adaptation of the comic book villain. In the Joss Whedon-directed film, the evil robot was epically humiliated and wasted, and fans had long awaited his redemption, but the multiverse had to emerge for it to take place.
The next chapter of What If…? will bring together several of the superheroes of these parallel universes, known as the Guardians of the Multiverse, and they will be in charge of facing the great threat that is Infinity Ultron. Who knows if the formidable villain will ever make it to live-action, but fans can rest easy knowing that he is a canon character within the Marvel Cinematic Multiverse.
The animated series have great potential for Marvel Studios, and in addition to a second season of What If…? that we will see in the future, there are plans to continue expanding the franchise with new productions, as advanced by the producer Brad Winderbaum to Variety a few months ago:
We realized that there are a lot of great possibilities that you can explore with animation. Any project that we are going to do has to be something that needs animation so that the story can be told. There is very little desire in taking a piece of intellectual property that is popular because we are going to make a movie and do an animated show about it. We are not going to do that.
