    1. Strange Supreme - 9/10
    2. If Thor Were an Only Child? - 8.5/10
    3. If Earth Lost Its Mightiest Heroes? - 8/10
    4. If Killmonger Rescued Tony? - 8/10
    5. If Captain Carter Were the First Avenger? - 7/10
    6. Zombies - 7/10
    7. T'Challa Star-Lord - 7/10

    This was my favourite episode of the season, with Strange and If Earth Lost it’s Mightiest Heroes tied for close second.

    Enjoyed every episode, but Captain Carter is at the bottom!

    Man, Party Thor was just so, so much fun!

    The MCU has treated Howard the Duck better than George Lucas did.

    Huh that's weird they would push What If's Assembled episode to that date. Usually they do the week after the show ends, which in this instance would have been October 13th

    So now we’ve been introduced to the series main villain, Ultron Prime the threat to the multiverse.

    This seems like a version of Vision in a Ultron body with all the infinity stones and will undoubtedly be a though nut to crack. His look means business.

    He looks pretty badass! Going to be cool to see Paul Bettany voice a much more sinister version of Vision.

    I don't think we're gonna be hearing Paul's voice since this is technically supposed to be Ultron. We've already heard James Spader (or someone that sounds like him) in the 1st trailer, so I'm thinking this is his voice.

    I always thought Ultron was such a cool looking villain, shame they kind of missed the mark with that interpretation of the character. This version looks even cooler, imposing and fearsome.

    Now looking at Ultron Prime and his army I feel like they are going to need a lot of firepower to cope with this level of threat.

    Man I am so excited for these final two episodes. Ultron Prime looks badass and scary asf just from his couple of seconds of screen time and I can't wait to hear James Spader's voice again.

    Ultron was a character that always had alot of potential in the MCU and while he didn't live up to expectations I definitely think they could redeem him a bit in this show if these last two episodes deliver.

    It's odd that so many of you have the Captain Carter episode ranked so low. I don't know if I rank it as the BEST episode but I think it's the best example of the question this show asks. Everything wasn't drastically different for one reason or another. Just one simple change: Peggy Carter staying instead of going to watch in the observatory. One different action changes the course of everything.

    Idk, I thought it was well done.

    I agree, I like it a lot as well. I'm gonna hold off on ranking the episodes until the season is over. I've already changed my thoughts on some episodes lol.

    I liked it pretty well. But it I liked Starlord, Zombies, Strange, and Thor episodes even better.

    Fair enough.

    For this show I find it difficult to rank the episodes because they're all so unique. By definition of the entire show they are all their own thing (though I do realize they are culminating in a grand finale).

    The What If...? concept seems to work best with taking left turns or going into unexpected quarters based on the history we know.

    The Capt. Carter episode was for many just a character swapped and rushed version of TFA, so it didn't do much with the inherent concept to many eyes.

    My updated rankings:

    1. Zombies
    2. Ultron Prime
    3. Strange Supreme
    4. Fury’s big week
    5. Killmonger
    6. Captain Carter
    7. Party Thor
    8. T’Challa Star Lord

    I guess I definitely like the dark/serious episodes more than the lighthearted ones (although the Zombies episode felt like it had the perfect balance between the two)

    I left the series after 2 episodes. As I have stated before, I don't watch animation anymore other than Rick and Morty and Invincible. I left MODOK after two episodes and I have not watched the Simpsons, Family Guy or South Park in years. I will watch Bob's Burgers if I am able to catch it when it's on. None of the newer Animation Domination shows have caught my attention enough for me to stay after a few episodes. I tend to give live action shows more of a chance more so than Animation but a lot of the newer shows this fall haven't been great.

    I liked the first two episodes, but I believe this show has gotten so much better since then atleast for the most part and if it ends on a strong note that would make it even better. I've been loving pretty much every episode after two with the exception of Zombies and even that epsiode I still enjoyed to a degree.
