The zombies episode of Marvel’s “What If…?” has been added to the Halloween collection on Disney+ as part of the Hallowstream event. It’s the episode that makes the most sense for Halloween, but it’s not a true Halloween episode.
If you read my initial review of the episode, you know that Hank Pym accidentally brought a zombie virus from the Quantum Realm to Earth, and the Avengers were decimated while trying to fight it. There are very few members of the Avengers team that haven’t been infected, but Wasp, Spider-man, and the Winter Soldier joined up with Happy Hogan to work to find a cure. However, they found Vision feeding Black Panther and Ant-Man to a zombie Scarlett Witch.
This is a wild episode that can be a lot of fun and brings some fantastical elements to the Marvel universe. Zombies are often associated with Halloween so it makes sense that this was added to the Halloween collection. However, there’s no timeframe set aside for the episode, so it’s not a traditional Halloween episode.
In the grand scheme of things, I think this is a good way to incorporate Marvel into the Hallowstream event, but it’s not necessary. I find the episode a lot of fun, but the zombies are not for everyone. I think it’s a good episode of TV, but, in the end, it’s only a middle-of-the-road episode for Halloween fun.
What do you think of the zombies episode of Marvel’s “What If…?” being in the Halloween collection.
