Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness Makes What If Essential Marvel Viewing

Even though the What If…? episode centered around Strange deals with a demonic and destructive version of the character, he’s ironically born from a kinder and less egocentric variant of the original. Strange Supreme never ended his relationship with Christine, meaning she was there during his fateful car crash and died in the wreckage. With the Time Stone, he becomes obsessed with preventing her death and fails over and over again due to reality insisting that what’s done is done. This obsession leads to the death of an entire universe.

From what we’ve seen of Multiverse of Madness, Christine is getting married to somebody else and Strange, while at the wedding, is probably feeling raw about it. Considering Scarlet Witch is being presented as a foil for him, it makes sense to contrast one’s excessively-powerful existence with the tragedy of love lost. We do not know how badly this Christine situation will affect Strange, but from What If…?we know how far it could take him.

The Power of a Sorcerer

It’s always nice to clang the action figures together and What If…? did a pretty good job with that. For one, we know how dangerous an unhinged Hank Pym can be. From the mainline MCU, we’ve already seen that Strange is on another level compared to Thor and Loki. Strange also was the best overall counter against Thanos when Thanos had four of the six Infinity Stones (Thor, despite burying Stormbreaker into Thanos’ chest, was more of a right place / right time situation).

We get some more use of our Multiverse of Madness magic users and what they’re capable of in What If…? In the zombie episode, the zombified Wanda is last shown running into battle against the Hulk. When she’s revisited in the finale, there’s no sign of Hulk so… I guess that speaks for that! The finale also has a team of characters from various worlds take on a variant of Ultron powered by the Infinity Stones. While Strange Supreme was outmatched, his power level was so ridiculous that he was easily the MVP and the main reason why the heroes lasted as long as they did.

Doctor Strange and Scarlet Witch may have their limits, but What If…? gives us an idea of ​​how much damage they’re capable of.

Uatu the Watcher’s Broken Oath

The final episodes of What If…? are dedicated to the series’ narrator Uatu the Watcher being roped into the story and reluctantly having to bring together the Guardians of the Multiverse to put an end to Infinity Ultron. Earlier on, in the Strange Supreme episode, Strange called out to Uatu for help, but Uatu refused. In the finale, Uatu had to break his oath for once in order to save the multiverse and probably because it was partially his fault that Ultron became aware of all the other realities.
