Have you watched the first episode of Marvel What If? There are some interesting easter eggs in it, you know. Let’s see more!
After Marvel Studios comes the first episode of Marvel What If…? leaves a lot of question marks and some unexpected scenes. Starting from the presence of the Iron Man Armor called Hydra Stomper and Peggy Carter’s role. She replaced Steve Rogers’ role as Captain Carter. In each episode, there is a different story that is not continuous with each other. That’s why many Marvel fans are waiting for the story. What else will be present in Marvel What If…?
So, on this occasion, the Dunia Games team will discuss Easter Eggs from the first episode of Marvel What If…? which you may have missed. Let’s look at it in more detail.
- Opening from Marvel What If
The opening scene of Marvel What If can be said to show many things, one of which is a variety of characters present in this series. If you look closely, you can find the parents of T’Challa, Peggy Carter, Steve Rogers, Thor, Vision, Proxima Midnight, Obadiah Stane, Hulk, Doctor Strange, Captain Marvel, and The Collector. Of course, this makes Marvel fans even more curious, what else will be present in Marvel What If.
- Peggy Carter’s Transformation
One of the most dramatic scenes in Captain America: The First Avenger is when Steve Rogers transforms into a tall, muscular figure. In Marvel What If, the scene changes position to Peggy Carter in it. Still being irradiated with gamma rays and Super Soldier serum, Peggy has drastically changed to become muscular and has her strength multiple times.
- Blood from Peggy
After the scene of Peggy Carter’s transformation, she was asked for some blood tests and what had changed in her. If we look at Falcon & The Winter Soldier, the blood became an essential point in the creation of Isaiah Bradley. He became a victim of the experiment to make Super Soldier serum from Steve Rogers’ blood. Whereas in Captain America: The First Avenger, there is no blood-drawing scene at all.
- Peggy Punches Boxing Bag
The scene of Captain America punching a bag can be said to be a scene that shows how strong he is, even though this scene appeared in the movie The Avengers until this iconic scene is back by Peggy Carter, who has been given serum in episode 1 of Marvel What If. Of course, the bag that Peggy punched came loose just like Steve did.
- Tønsberg – Norway
Red Skull was also present in the first episode of Marvel What If. Red Skull found the Tesseract to the corners of the earth and finally found it in the Tønsberg area, Norway. Indirectly Tønsberg also became a village for the Asgardians when Asgard was destroyed and ravaged. Of course, it’s no secret that Tønsberg has many mysteries to explore in it.
- Peggy’s Motorcycle
Still taking the reference from Captain America: The First Avenger, where Steve Rogers also uses a motorbike as his vehicle. Using the same motorbike that Steve used, Peggy in Marvel What If also comes with an iconic motorbike during the second world war. Of course, this makes us reminisce about how dramatic the scenes in Captain America: The First Avenger was.
- Operation Where Eagles Dare
When Captain Carter intercepts a train containing the Red Skull, it is called Operation Where Eagles Dare. It turned out that Operation Where Eagles Dare itself was taken from a film with the same title, and the mission was also the same, namely a small group of soldiers who were conquering the German army. Of course, Marvel What If itself made Operation Where Eagles Dare a tribute to the film.
- Hydra Stomper C-15
The appearance of the Iron Man Armor driven by Steve Rogers is astonishing. It looks pretty similar to the first Iron Man armor created by Tony Stark. The advanced technology that is present in the Hydra Stomper is indeed quite confusing. In addition, there is a C-15 stroke that references the Comic Captain America #115 where Steve is fighting the Red Skull for the Tesseract.
Red Skull has a very different plan from the one presented in Captain America: The First Avenger. Red Skull shows a monster from another dimension which is thought to have the name Shuma-Gorath who is the enemy of Doctor Strange. The appearance of Shuma-Gorath itself in the comics is that it has many giant tentacles and has one big eye.
- The Sword Peggy Uses
Peggy Carter can reference Captain Britain, who uses the Excalibur sword as his primary weapon. Either Marvel Studios gets the connection from that, or Peggy doesn’t have any other weapon options. You could say Captain Carter’s appearance does look very significant using a sword, where he can save Steve when captured by the Tentacles.
