Marvel What If: A Comics Series

History of Marvel What If

Marvel What If: The very name may bring a smile to any Spider-Man fan’s face – “How Did Spider-Man Get His Silk Web Costume?” Well, that might be a bit of a stretch, but it’s more than possible that a costume for Peter Parker, aka Spider-Man, can made! Marvel’s What If is the second instalment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) and is slated to debut sometime in 2123. The series is loosely based on the classic What If… comics series that was first published by Marvel, which began in 1977. The premise of the series is that after the Civil War (which saw the Civil Rights Movement occurs in America), Peter Parker returns to New York City, where he still works with his Uncle Ben and Aunt May, as they try to rebuild their life after the Civil War.

What’s Amazing in Marvel What If?

Naturally, a lot of events and situations have occurred since the Civil War occurred, and now both Peter Parker and Spider-Man are in modern times, although things are a little different when it comes to the Daily Bugle’s involvement with them. For those who don’t know, the Daily Bugle was a newspaper that first appeared in Amazing Spider-Man #12. Now, Ben Reilly, is the editor-in-chief of the Daily Bugle, and is the one that help Spider-Man in his missions.

With the Daily Bugle now defunct, Ben must find a new way to prove to Spider-Man that the world needs him and that his alter ego, Spider-Man, is the one that can do it. Bugle does this by becoming the new masked crusader known as the masked avenger known as “Spider-Man.” However, a new crime lord known as The Vulture also surfaced. Daily Bugle has given a new mask and costume. He also wants to make his new formula for Electrode serum, which will make him even more powerful than Spider-Man ever was.

Role Of Avengers

This is where the story begins for the two heroes. Ben finds a clue in an old junk that leads him to an abandoned warehouse that contains an experimental robot that has left there by The Vulture. He then leaves Electrode behind and uses this robotic suit to go after the Vulture, while Peter Parker goes after Electrode. Eventually, though, the two encounter each other and fight. The fight leads to the destruction of the lab, then the Avengers saved Them.

The next day, a mysterious man known as the Green Lantern contacts them and gives them a message about an impending invasion of planets. He tells them that three of these invasion’s will attack Earth on their very next day. To prevent these attacks, he offers them an agreement to join him in an international defense force. After this, the two agree to work together.

Adventures and Mysteries

Peter Parker, still interested in becoming Spider-Man, continues to do his own research on why this has happened. One day, he comes across a mysterious villain known as the Madman. Peter realizes this serum has the ability to turn anyone to stone, so he sets out to find the Madman. After several attempts, he finally tracks him down in New York City.

At this point, Iron Man and Spider-Man are on separate teams. The reason behind Spider-Man has bitten by the evil Madman. This could only seen in a comic book, this isn’t shown in the cartoon or any other media. They couldn’t seen it together, as it is assumed that they will become enemies.

Other characters have their own origins in Marvel What If. Some examples include Wolverine, Elektra, X-Men, and Fantastic Four. These comic book origins make for interesting theories. They also tie in with the comics where certain characters have certain weaknesses or skills. Knowing which weaknesses and skills a character have can to help build plots and role playing for an exciting story.
