* Volume 1, issue 34 and Volume 2, issue 34 were both special issues full of one-page gags like "What if ComicBook/DoctorStrange were an [[StageMagician ordinary magician]]?", "What if ComicBook/ThePunisher were a stern yet fatherly type?", "What if WonderMan were a [[ComicBook/WonderWoman Woman]] and [[ComicBook/LukeCageHeroForHire Power Man]] were a [[ComicBook/PowerGirl Girl]]?", and "What if the ComicBook/FantasticFour were all bananas?"

* AGodAmI: "What If the Silver Surfer Had Kept The Infinity Gauntlet" had the Surfer set himself up as the omnipotent God of the universe with the intent of "fixing it". He initially does okay, removing hunger, disease, war and transforms Death into a less terrifying entity, as well as destroying Mephisto. However, the power eventually begins to corrupt him, and when he almost lashes out at his lost love Shala-Bal for questioning him, he comes to his senses, destroys the Infinity Gems, and retreats to an EdenWorld with Shala-Bal as a mortal.

** Several of What Ifs have dealt with the repercussions of Peter either keeping the Venom symbiote or rebonding to it, or it bonding to someone other than Eddie Brock. One of the most famous examples, ''What If: The Other'', had the symbiote [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness abandon Mac Gargan]] to rebond to its "[[{{Yandere}} first love]]" after Peter refused to accept his Inner Spider, resulting in the birth of [[http://cdn.herohq.com/marvel/herohq/images/blog/Poison_hiRes.png Poison]], a being capable of [[CurbStompBattle Curb Stomping]] both ComicBook/{{Wolverine}} and [[MadeOfIron Luke Cage]]. Another has the symbiote jump from Spidey to the Hulk, and then to ''Thor'', combining the powers of all three.

* DealWithTheDevil: "In The Shadows" (vol2 #90) ends with Alex Summers basically selling himself into slavery at the hands of Dark Beast in order to keep him away from Scott.
** "What If the Silver Surfer Was Trapped On Earth" has the Surfer (in this version a member of the Fantastic Four) make a deal with Mephistoa for his soul to save the rest of the Four (aside from Johnny Storm whom Mephisto burned alive). In a twist however, Mephisto discovers that the Surfers IncorruptiblePurePureness burns ''him'', and because of the deal, Mephisto [[HoistByHisOwnPetard is now trapped burning in agony until the end of time]] in the light of the Surfers soul.

* ElvisLives: Played with in "What if No One Watched The Watcher?". Thanos turned a defeated Galactus into an amnesiac with a body resembling Elvis and dropped him in a trailer park. The country woman who finds him helps "Elvis" remember who he was and his "purpose." [[spoiler:When Adam Warlock finds him after beating Thanos, "Elvis" is happier as the "King of Rock and Roll." Having the good woman and her son as support didn't hurt either.]]

* FreakyFridayFlip: "What If Tony Stark Became Doctor Doom?" has Victor Von Doom do this to Tony Stark during their college years, giving Tony LaserGuidedAmnesia in the bargain. Doom, in Stark's body, becomes a hugely successful CorruptCorporateExecutive, while Tony, in Doom's body, achieves a number of doctorates on his own and creates a business empire in Latveria. Later, after Doom (in IronMan-style power armor) is defeated by Stark (in a modified Doctor Doom armor) after attempting to sabotage Von Doom Industries, Doom offers to reverse the mind-swap in exchange for amnesty. Stark declines, stating that Doom has made the name Stark synonymous with corruption and avarice, and he wants no part of that name now.

* ICannotSelfTerminate: Subverted in "I'll Be Your Best Friend!" by Josh's pet Sentinel, when it finally repairs itself enough to identify Josh's family as mutants. Josh convinces the Sentinel that he'll have to gun down Josh to get to them, thus becoming a threat to him, and given Josh gave it a directive to "protect Joshua Guthrie at all costs", the Sentinel concludes that it has become a threat and promptly destroys itself.

* LoopholeAbuse: "I'll Be Your Best Friend!" ends with this. Once Josh Guthrie's pet Sentinel has repaired enough that it can continue its mutant-hunting mission, it goes to terminate Josh's family (Since Cannonball, Josh's older brother, and Husk are mutants.) Earlier however, Josh had given the Sentinel an order to protect him at all costs. Josh uses a loophole in this very directive to convince the Sentinel that it has become a threat to Josh in itself since Josh outright said it would have to kill him to get at his family. The Sentinel promptly destroys itself.

Eventually, they merge with the {{Anthropomorphic Personification}}s of Death and Eternity, and the resulting entity leaves to create a big bang for a new universe, after which it splits into just Death and Eternity. Meanwhile, humanity evolves to the point that the humans merge their minds and become one with the planet itself, transforming themselves into a GeniusLoci.

(v1 #21), while Mr Fantastic and the ComicBook/SubMariner are arguing over who gets to risk his life trying to deactivate a machine that threatens the Sub-Mariner's underwater city, one of the Sub-Mariner's subjects sneaks off to do it himself, explicitly describing himself as "far more expendable".

* NonSequiturCausality: A problem with some issues, most often in the form of "Well, first of all things seem to be going well, but then! Something bad happens! That didn't happen in the original timeline and yet isn't a consequence of the posited change!" Examples include "What If Captain America had formed the Avengers?", which despite being the direct sequel to a much more coherent issue, asks you to make a lot of leaps in logic to make sense of it all. "What If the Hulk killed Wolverine" where the death of Wolverine creates a cosmic imbalance favoring chaos and thus the super villain the Adversary is free to imprison Roma and go on to kill many other X-Men, something he never did even when he fought them in the mainstream continuity. In "What If Professor X became the Juggernaut" the Fantastic Four decide to randomly attack Xavier and the X-Men after the latter trashed the Sentinels that first attacked them, handwaving that Reed Richards was friends with Bolvier Trask, the maker of the Sentinels, resulting in them all losing their powers due to a device that Xavier makes. In "What if The Marvel Super Heroes had Lost Atlantis Attacks," Set contaminates the world's water supply turning nearly everyone into serpent people (including most of the remaining super heroes and villains), except for about eight random superheroes and villains. No reason is given why these particular eight never drank the water, and why others did, other than for the purposes of the story.

** When the Punisher is tricked into killing Spider-Man, he discovers that the police may have been willing to turn a blind eye to him wiping out gangsters but killing a super-hero makes the Punisher Public Enemy #1. Plus, the Punisher finds himself hunted by every costumed hero in New York and openly noting how he's "out my league and over my head" with panels showing his guns useless on the likes of Luke Cage and the Thing, outmatched against Captain America and barely able to escape the Human Torch.

* ShootTheShaggyDog: The first story in "What If Nova Had Been Four Different People" focuses on a woman named Helen Taylor whose husband is murdered. When she gains the powers of Nova, she uses them to set out on a one-woman total war against the criminal underworld, even killing the Kingpin in the process, with the ultimate goal of finding her husband's killer. Reed Richards is eventually forced to put her in the Negative Zone to stop her killing spree. Unbeknownst to Taylor, the man who killed her husband had died the same night as the murder when his car crashed into the Hudson. Since no one knew that he was the killer, no one ever made the connection.

** "What if someone else ''besides'' Spider-Man had been bitten by the radioactive spider?" (v1 #7) offers three stories in which Flash Thompson, Betty Brant and John Jameson, respectively, get bitten by the radioactive spider and attempt to be heroes. Flash is killed, Betty quits after causing Uncle Ben to die and John performs a HeroicSacrifice and inspires other heroes. All three of them end up the same way - due to participating in various events, Peter Parker is inspired to become Spider-Man.
** "What if Jane Foster had found the hammer of Thor?" (v1 #10), where Jane stumbles into the cave that Donald Blake should have and becomes "Thordis". When she arrives in Asgard to deal with Loki, Odin's shocked that a female has the hammer and that it was meant for his son. When Jane stops Ragnarok from occurring, Odin rewards her for her valor by turning her into a true goddess and being his bride and returns the hammer to Donald Blake, who becomes Thor once more.
** "What if Sgt. Fury and his Howling Commandos had fought World War II in Outer Space?" (v1 #14): Thanks to the inventions of Leonardo Da Vinci, mankind has advanced technology including casual spaceflight by the 1940s, but there's still a World War II and it's still got the Howling Commandos fighting in it, complete with all the usual war-comic tropes. Fury's even still a CigarChomper, though you'd think that wouldn't work so well in a spacesuit.

** The codifer for this is most likely "What if someone else ''besides'' Spider-Man had been bitten by the radioactive spider?" in which fate intervenes and allows either Flash Thompson, Betty Brant and John Jameson to be heroes. Flash is killed, Betty quits after causing Uncle Ben to die and John performs a HeroicSacrifice and inspires other heroes. All three of them end up the same way - due to participating in various events, Peter Parker is inspired to become Spider-Man.

* SurprisinglyHappyEnding: Oddly, many issues do end this way. For instance, in "What if Spider-Man had kept his six arms?" (vol. 2 #42), Spider-Man's multi arms cause him to be adored by the public who see him adapting to his mutation akin to a disabled person working through their disability and becomes an inspiration to many. And as an added bonus, having multiple arms also prevents the death of Gwen Stacy.
