Took me a few days to catch up. Enjoyed all the episodes so far. Nebula, Peter Quill, Grandmaster and Captain Carter have been my favorites.

The Hela episode was ok, probably my least favorite so far.

Was surprised they got Blanchett to come back to voice Hela.

I thought it was great.
Also not surprised they got her back. They’ve had a ton of original actors do the voices in this series.

I liked Hela’s episode too. Went a very different direction than I thought it would.

And again, by going back that far in time (I would guess they are in the late Ming Dynasty), the 1602 set up is getting more and more obvious.

These last few eps should be interesting.
Spoiler:
Kahhori
Captain Carter and the Earth 1602 crew
Hela and Wen Wu
… and Dark Strange




It’s gonna be interesting.

I am throughly enjoying ALL the episodes. Wife watched the Quill episode with me, and we were both in tears toward the end.

and the Christmas episode with all the Die Hard winks was fun!

Bring Kahhori into a live-action project ASAP!

Check out Rez Dogs on FX and Hulu. She's one of the leads and it is just a damned good show.

So Kahori is the first original MCU character, except for Echo, who debuted in Hawkeye a year ago.

Ok.

Ok.
Echo is a character from the comics, not original to the MCU.

Once the MCU character originality was established in that article, the following sentence made a completely different point.

It said:
Much like Echo ... Kahhori provides much-needed Indigenous representation to the MCU

It did NOT say
Much like Echo ... Kahhori provides an original character.

The 1602 episode was pretty good at balancing all the heroes.

The reveal was cheesy but fit the story.

I’m excited for the wrap up tomorrow.

Yeah, I spotted him twice. Once, sharpening his axe and then in the battle in the hall taking a swipe at someone. I thought it was cool.

I was surprised that…

Freak/Happy showed up again..

I am . . . not sure what the point was. I fell asleep for ten minutes, woke up as Peggy put her hands in the box, and watched to the end. Then I rewound it, figuring I missed the point. Nope. Maybe it will make more sense tomorrow.

Finale was fine.

Overall I enjoyed this season more than the first.

That was a badass finale. Kahhori and Peggy fighting with all the different weapons was cool as shit.

I didn't like how this season didn't feel as connected. But overall, I enjoyed it.

Really enjoyed the whole season and again the final 2 episodes kicked ass.

Waiting for the “1,632,707 Easter eggs you missed video” for that final episode. There was whole lot going on there!

Well, that was … strange. I agree, the finale was pretty good, but it felt like something that should have been built up to throughout the season, and something that easily could have been.

So, the 1602 episode was completely pointless. Too bad, as that one had potential to be really cool.

I think they need to decide are these one-offs or a continuing series (even if it is just in each season). Either is fine, but mixing the two strategies isn’t working.

Season 3 … Streaming soon?

Wasn't too excited about any of the episodes this season. And now knowing that Kahhori is a brand new character, kind of let down her and her people don't somehow get to us having Thunderbird, Warpath or Mirage since they are from different tribes. Weird using Capt Carter as the one to tie most of these episodes together, as if there's a bigger future for her in the MCU.

I really enjoyed this season and there were some things that I loved including that Kahori episode but the season ended with a clunk for me.
Dont think I needed another season of this that was Evil Dr Strange trying to get his wife back again.


It seemed like it was trying. To be an interconnected storyline throughout but the Hela wp jumped right to the 1602 episode and I didn’t understand how it got there.
Felt like an episode was missing in between.

Re: Marvel Studios What If...? (Disney+) -- Season 2 -- Premieres 12/22/23

This was one of the best seasons of an MCU show so far. I actually didn't like that everything was so tied together last season. I like the random "what if" stories. Stays more true to the intent of the comics, IMO. But I didn't mind that much that Carter was kind of a thread through many of them. I didn't really like the finale with Strange's re-hashed plot, but the fight at the end was pretty cool. Looking forward to the next season!
