What If…? decided to show fans how easily the Avengers could have defeated Thanos this week. However, some fans aren't loving how the Mad Titan met his end. "What If Ultron Won?" shows how another villain decided to use the Infinity Stones. In this reality, the team doesn't stop Ultron from getting Vision's body, and then once he defeats the heroes he looks out on a desolate landscape. Thanos pops in through a portal and before he can get a hit in, the robot literally cuts him in half with a laser beam. It's pretty brutal but very effective. Now, that is going to rile some people up. The Avengers had to throw everything but the kitchen sink at the villain to emerge victorious in our reality. For a moment though, maybe it all could have been that simple. (Or maybe Ant-Man could have taken one for the team, as many Internet commenters still love to joke about.) Check out some of the jokes down below:
Series head writer A.C. Bradley spoke to EW about the final stretch. "The most liberating part of What If…? has been writing things you'll never see in the movies, which includes killing off our heroes, ending the world, just going full out," Bradley mused. "I'm excited for people to see that we're not going in there clueless, that there was a bit of a bigger plan. I'm aware that many of the episodes end tragically, and there might be a reason. I'm hoping people have enjoyed the ride so far, and that the finale gives them everything we promised."
