What if…? is set to feature several fascinating alternate realities, but a zombie-hunting Spider-Man with the powers of Doctor Strange is arguably the most intriguing. This storyline will not only give Spider-Man a whole new set of powers, but the deaths of Iron Man, Captain America, and Hawkeye are a radical departure from the main MCU storyline. It is not yet clear how these heroes become the living dead. However, this will surely be a unique aspect of the series when the episode airs.
