Check out this episode!


  1. I was collecting New Mutants and X-Men during the Asgard epic, and of course I loved it. So this What If was lots of fun. The story came together quite nicely and fit this volume of What If using more recent events, rather than "classic" ones. Not sure how I read it. I don't have a copy of it, maybe I borrowed it from a friend back in the day. Sigh.

    But it suffers from two problems.

    The cover. It's a striking image, but a HUGE spoiler for the story. I'd rather have seen a montage of the X-Asgardians, and saved the surprise of Throg fighting Storm for the inside.

    The ending. I've said it before, but my main turnoff from What If is the sad endings. It's like a rule, "see, this all ends badly, so aren't you glad the regular stories didn't go this way?" The coda with Loki was completely unnecessary, except to be a deliberate downer.

    Always a treat to hear Dr G, and my man Rick! You guys are great together! Well done! Till next time, Watchies!

  2. And you hate hate hate.....where is the love man!

    I can easily ignore the is such a tack on. But, I think you are wrong on the cover. It is soooooo iconic.
