Episode 8: What If… Ultron Won?
I really enjoyed this episode. This is my new favorite. It ties together the series nicely. The watcher is making some big moves in this one and we really get to see how bad Ultron can be.
Here’s my new episode rankings:
- Episode 8: What If… Ultron Won?
- Episode 2: What If… T’Challa Became a Star-Lord?
- Episode 4: What If… Doctor Strange Lost His Heart Instead of His Hands?
- Episode 7: What If… Thor Were an Only Child?
- Episode 3: What If… the World Lost Its Mightiest Heroes?
- Episode 5: What If… Zombies?!
- Episode 6: What If… Killmonger Rescued Tony Stark?
- Episode 1: What if… Captain Carter Were the First Avenger?
The Black Widow and Hawkeye scenes were nice. It was cool to see them being the ones who find the solution.
Ultron is a force to be reckoned with. It was funny seeing Thanos get lasered in half by Ultron. This did make me wonder why Vision didn’t easily defeat Thanos in Infinity war.
Ultron easily collected the stones and gained a suit of armor to boot. His design is really cool and fits the evil robot theme.
He goes on a streak destroying the worlds within the Marvel universe. Captain Marvel shows up to stop him but she didn’t stand a chance and he defeats her with ease. She probably should’ve brought the nuke that was going to be used to stop party Thor.
After destroying everything Ultron loses purpose and his conscious somehow becomes multi-dimensional. He hears the voice of the watcher.
This makes the watcher panic because this is something he never anticipated and he is supposed to know everything.
This was a great tipping point for the show. It’s starting to tie all together.
The watcher hopes that Black widow and Hawkeye will find the solution in time but they don’t and Ultron finds his way into his multiverse hideout.
I like that the solution is the Arnim Zola. Unfortunately we lose Hawkeye when he and Black Widow were escaping with an Ultron drone that they implanted with Arnim Zola’s AI.
It’s kind of neat how they flipped the script of the Infinity war sacrifice. Instead we lose Hawkeye in this universe.
This episode continues to uphold the stunning visuals. I really liked the Armor that the watcher dons in this fight.
The battle between Ultron and the watcher was awesome.
The episode ends with Ultron in the Multi-Verse room saying no one can stop me now. He’s a great villain and I can’t wait for the next episode to see how the watcher is going to take him on.
We also get a small glimpse at the end of the watcher seeking the help of evil doctor strange.
