What If…? S1E3 Review – What if Hope Joined SHIELD?
Marvel's What If...? series keeps bringing great episodes. What makes this series work so well is the 10+ years of MCU content that the show can play off of. It also shows how small changes can have big consequences. The real catalyst to this episode is "What if Hope joined SHIELD?". This plays on so many things. Like her father in the MCU wanting to keep her out of SHIELD and danger. In this reality, he didn't keep her from that and she ended up dying which leads Hank Pym down a path to being the crazy SOB we've seen glimpses of in the comics. It also shows what happens if Fury's plan to have the Avengers to protect against larger threats, never formed. We get Loki, with the full weight of Asgard behind him, taking over Earth.
It's been a blast seeing how these small changes could have the affect on the world we know from the movies. For a series a lot of folks weren't looking for, it's really knocked the first three episodes out of the park and we can't wait for more.
