What If...T'Challa Became a Star-Lord? Review

Spoiler Free Review


Wow. That's really all I need to say about episode two of What If.. I mean from the story to the numerous characters to hearing the late Chadwick Boseman's voice as he plays T'Challa for the last time. This episode really had it all and with that, let's review!


I said it in the paragraph above but hearing Chadwick's voice again is the best thing about the episode. This episode truly felt like with one decision, an entire universe gets changed and I mean an ENTIRE universe! By now, you probably know the backstory of the episode and its actually not that hard to understand; Yondu and the Ravengers take the wrong kid...big yikes. Instead of taking Peter Quill in Missouri, they take T'Challa of Wakanda. That's all of the episode I will tell you but seriously, go watch it...it's a great episode. In my review I did of episode one, "What If Captain Carter Were the First Avenger", I gave it a good 8/10...yeah, I might want to change that only because of how amazing episode two was. I honestly think I was on such a "new Marvel content high" that I was always going to think episode one was amazing and that's probably not a good way at looking at a show like this because they all will be different. This episode actually felt like a What If comic and I really love that about it as the first episode was kind of like a fast paced origin story, and that's totally fine. I think I would change it to a 6/10 now.


I did wish we got more action from this episode but the little that we did get was great. The animation is still amazing and my stance on that won't change throughout this series. Having some actors come back to voice their characters was again fantastic. Speaking of characters, they really brought back some crazy ones and some surprises! Maybe some villains are good and some good guys are bad and that's all because Yondu snatched up the wrong kid! The amount of characters we had from the Guardians of the Galaxy fused with those from Black Panther was a mixture that I didn't know I needed until now.

Now that I think about it, each episode of this season will probably always have some of the same plus's for me so instead of saying them over and over again, I will tell you about my honest opinion for that particular episode. So, what was my honest opinion on episode two, well...it absolutely blows the first episode out of the water and I did like episode one.


Overall, this is what all these episodes should feel like and that is a fun, well paced, and truly a comic book adaptation of What If. "What If..T'Challa Became a Star-Lord" gets a 9/10!
