[[caption-width-right:350: This is the 34th issue, and yes, the Watcher [[CrackFic is NOT joking]].]]

''What If?'' is a Creator/MarvelComics series in which each issue explores the consequences of some key event in Marvel history happening differently. These consequences frequently, though not always, turn out to be one of HilarityEnsues or AnyoneCanDie. The series originally ran from 1977 to 1984; a second series ran from 1989 to 1998. It has been occasionally revived in the 21st century for one-shots and miniseries, most often featuring alternate endings to the latest CrisisCrossover.

Notable issues include:

* Volume 1, issue 1: "What if ComicBook/{{Spider-Man}} had joined the ComicBook/FantasticFour?"
* Volume 1, issue 9: "What if the Avengers Had Fought Evil During the 1950s?" - Used as a major plot point in ''Avengers Forever'', this later became semi-canon and led to ''AgentsOfAtlas''.
* Volume 1, issue 44: "What if CaptainAmerica were not revived until today?" - A serious attempt to extrapolate from existing continuity, without using DiabolusExMachina or [[RuleOfFunny Drollery ex Machina]], with some interesting things to say about patriotism and national pride.
* 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 [[LukeCageHeroForHire Power Man]] were a [[ComicBook/PowerGirl Girl]]?", and "What if the ComicBook/FantasticFour were all bananas?"
* Volume 2, issue 105 asked what if ComicBook/{{Spider-Man}}'s daughter (who was stillborn in the regular continuity) had survived and inherited her father's powers. The popularity of this issue resulted in the ongoing ''ComicBook/{{Spider-Girl}}'' series and the MarvelComics2 continuity.

----
!This series provides examples of:

* AlternateHistory: The premise of the series is each issue is set in a different one of the thousands of universes in the Marvel multiverse. Except for the two #34 issues -- those are just the Watcher making stuff up.
* AnyoneCanDie: One of the main draws of the series is that, free from the binds of canon, WhatIf can outright avert ContractualImmortality and JokerImmunity by killing anybody off that it damn well pleases. Expect to see Spider-Man, the Kingpin and even DoctorDoom die a lot through a number of issues.
* ArentYouGoingToRavishMe: In "What if Wolverine had lived during the Age of Conan the Barbarian?" (v2 #16), {{Wolverine}} [[LetsYouAndHimFight fights]] Comicbook/RedSonja and defeats her. When he lets her live, she assumes he's heard about her BestHerToBedHer condition, and prepares to be raped -- and is puzzled (and a bit offended) when he's not interested.
* BestOfAllPossibleWorlds: Even if things seem to be going well at first, they frequently end up worse than the "real" version of events. (There are, however, enough exceptions that listing them all individually would take up too much space.)
* BolivianArmyEnding: The climax of the ''What if ComicBook/{{Annihilation}} reached Earth?" one-shot.
* ABoyAndHisX:
** "I'll be your best friend!" (v2 #92) was the tale of a boy and his robot -- specifically Josh, kid brother of Cannonball, an [[ComicBook/{{X-Men}} X-Man]] and a damaged Sentinel (robot designed to kill X-Men). Many readers questioned why this story was published as a "What If" given that it could've easily fit into Earth-616 canon.
** 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 {{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.
* CanadaEh: "What if Alpha Flight talked like T.V. Canadians?", one of the gag stories in Volume 1 #34.
* 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.
* DeathByChildbirth: The premise of "What If the Invisible Girl Had Died?" (v1 #42) explores a scenario that would have happened if Reed Richards had not prevented this from happening to Sue in "Let There Be... Life!" (''ComicBook/FantasticFour Annual'' #6).
* DetonationMoon: In "What if the Avengers had become the pawns of Korvac?" (v1 #32), Korvac and the Stranger become involved in a shoving match, with the moon itself as the object being shoved. The moon, behaving at least somewhat according to the laws of physics, gets ripped to shreds by tidal forces and forms a debris ring around the Earth.
* DidYouJustScamCthulhu: In the "Newer Fantastic Four" one-shot, Thanos is in possession of the [[CosmicKeystone Infinity Gauntlet]], with Mephisto as his advisor -- and {{Wolverine}} outwits them both by manipulating Thanos' love of [[TheGrimReaper Death]] against him.
* DownerEnding: Frequently, even with changes that seem like they ought to be clearly positive. Often it seemed that the editorial staff had set a policy against alternate universes that were "better" than the primary Marvel universe.
* DramaticIrony: Several issues have characters speculating inaccurately about how things would have been different if the issue's premise had not been true. The very first issue, ''What if Spider-Man joined the Fantastic Four?", ends with this conversation:
-->'''Spider-Man''': Johnny, I can't help feeling responsible for all this. What Sue said...! Maybe, if I hadn't joined the F.F. -- upstaged her, so that she felt left out -- things might have gone differently.\\
'''Human Torch''': Don't talk nutty, webhead. Like the song says -- whatever will be, will be. It's fate -- kismet -- and there's nothing any of us can do about it. If you'd never joined the F.F. things would probably have worked out exactly the same.
* EarthShatteringKaboom: Suffered by Earth itself in "What if the Avengers lost Operation Galactic Storm?" (v2 #55) And this is around the start!
* EatsBabies: "What if the ComicBook/{{X-Men}} had lost ComicBook/{{Inferno}}?" (v2 #6) had a demon-corrupted {{Wolverine}} literally get handed a squalling infant by N'astirh, followed by a claw-popping ''snikt!'' and a barely DiscretionShot of Wolverine bending over the child's body.
* {{Elseworld}}: A short run of issues published in 2006 took this tack, with stories about ComicBook/{{Daredevil}} in FeudalJapan, CaptainAmerica in TheAmericanCivilWar, ComicBook/ThePunisher in {{Gangsterland}} Chicago, and so on.
* 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.]]
* EnemyMine: "What if Iron Man lost the Armor Wars?" (v2 #8) had an outlaw Tony Stark teaming up with some of his armored foes to get back at Justin Hammer, who'd caused his downfall because Ant-Man couldn't stop the "pest control" in the [=TransCorp=] computers.
* EpisodeFinishesTheTitle: Especially in the first series. Later on, issues increasingly got titles that didn't fit the format.
* EvolutionPowerUp: All over the place in "What if the Avengers lost the Evolution War?" (v2 #1).
* TheExtremistWasRight: A short comic in v2 #110 shows the ComicBook/FantasticFour apologizing to DoctorDoom after he [[http://www.marvunapp.com/Appendix3/earthdoomtookover.htm successfully transforms the world into a Utopia]].
* ForWantOfANail: A common plot device.
* 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 DoctorDoom 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.
* FunnyAnimal: "What if the Spider had been bitten by a radioactive human?", a humorous back-up story in v1 #8, replaced Peter Parker and his animal-themed rogues gallery with a cast of actual animals, featuring Webster Weaver, the 'Mazing Man-Spider.
* GenghisGambit: In "What if Magneto ruled all mutants?" (v2 #85), Magneto does this to unite the factions of Acolytes battling on Asteroid M.
* GivingRadioToTheRomans: In "What if Iron Man had been trapped in King Arthur's time?" (v1 #33).
* GoodHurtsEvil: In "What if the Silver Surfer had not escaped Earth?" (v2 #22), Mephisto finally manages to acquire Silver Surfer's soul and brings him into Hell. He realizes too late that the Surfer's soul is so good and pure that its light hurts him. Since Surfer already agreed to be in Hell forever, Mephisto will burn "until time's end".
* HugeGuyTinyGirl: "What if Dazzler had become the herald of Galactus?" (v1 #33) eventually turns into a love story between the two.
* HurlItIntoTheSun: In "The Greatest Sacrifice" (v2 #108), ComicBook/SilverSurfer was unable to overcome Carnage's possession. When he regains control for one minute, he suicides this way.
* ICannotSelfTerminate: Subverted in "I'll Best 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.
* InSpiteOfANail: Although the series typically tends toward ForWantOfANail, it occasionally switches into this trope instead.
** In "What if the Fantastic Four had not gained their powers?" (v1 #36), Reed Richards properly checked the radiation shielding on his spaceship, so the ComicBook/FantasticFour never get their powers. As it turns out, this has absolutely no bearing on their ability to kick Mole Man's ass.
** An even more dramatic example is "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.
* InvisibleStreaker: One of the gag stories in v1 #34 was "What if Reed Richards had not invented unstable molecules?" Part of the answer was that the Invisible Woman was always at least partly visible, because her clothes couldn't turn invisible with her, and she refused to enact this trope.
* JapaneseTourist: One passes in the background in "What if Conan the Barbarian walked the Earth today?" (v1 #13), remarking that "with such happenings, it is little wonder that the yen gains daily on the dollar!"
* KillEmAll: Some issues end this way; often they're "What if the heroes had lost [famous battle]?" ("[[TheDarkPhoenixSaga Dark Phoenix goes critical and destroys the universe]]" happens more than once), but sometimes they result from [[ForWantOfANail seemingly insignificant causes]].
* LamarckWasRight:
** "Brave New World" (v2 #114) had the heroes getting trapped in Battleworld after the events of ''ComicBook/SecretWars'', settling down and having children. All the kids have combinations of their parents' powers ''and'' traits; ComicBook/CaptainAmerica and [[ComicBook/XMen Rogue]][[note]]With Ms. Marvel's personality having taken over[[/note]] have a daughter who has strength, flight, and is a natural leader, while [[ComicBook/FantasticFour Human Torch]] and TheWasp's son has HotWings and [[KillItWithFire fire projection]] (but only when he's shrunk) and is a smartass.
** "Arachnomorphosis" (vol2 #88) dealt with Peter Parker's child by his dead wife (Gwen Stacey) being born slightly disfigured due to the bug bite his father received. In this universe, the radioactive spider bite didn't give Peter superpowers, but instead causes him to suffer from involuntary transformations into a flesh-craving spider-like monstrosity. His son, Ben, is suffering from a similar condition.
* 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.
-->'''Josh:''' This is my family. You want to hurt them – you’ll have to process me too.
-->'''Sentinel:''' JOSHUA CANNOT BE PROCESSED BY THIS UNIT. THIS UNIT MUST PROTECT JOSHUA GUTHRIE.
-->'''Josh:''' Yes, but if you kill my brother and sister, you kill me too...that makes you a threat. What do you do to threats to my safety?
-->'''Sentinel:''' '''ELIMINATE THEM.''' JOSHUA GUTHRIE HAS IDENTIFIED THIS UNIT AS A THREAT – JOSHUA GUTHRIE MUST BE PROTECTED – AT ALL COSTS. *Turns its own handblasters to its head*
* MagicalNegro: The "What if Captain America fought in [[TheAmericanCivilWar the Civil War]]?" one-shot reduces ComicBook/TheFalcon to a cross between a MagicalNegro and a MagicalNativeAmerican (in this version he was raised by the Shawnee tribe and became a shaman). He gives Steve Rogers a [[WhoopiEpiphanySpeech speech about seeing the similarities in people]], uses his [[ReligionIsMagic mystic abilities]] to give Steve superpowers, and then gets killed.
* {{Magitek}}: In v2 #113, Tony Stark becomes Sorcerer Supreme instead of ComicBook/DoctorStrange, and promptly starts working on ways to combine his Iron Man technology with his sorcery.
* MergerOfSouls: In "What If ComicBook/TheAvengers Had Lost the Evolutionary War?" many of the superhumans cut their ties to humanity and leave Earth find their own destiny. 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.
* MissedTheCall: "What If... Barbara Ketch Had Become Ghost Rider" (vol2, #45) had Jack Ketch's sister living and becoming a more violent Ghost Rider than her brother.
* MommasBoy: "Children in the Attic" (vol2, #98) focused on if Mystique hadn't abandoned Nightcrawler. Named Michael, she keeps him locked in a highly furnished attic while she trains the Brotherhood with Destiny. She does love him, but her [[MyBelovedSmother smothering]] and overprotective nature has made him very weak-willed.
* MoreExpendableThanYou: In "What if Sub-Mariner had married the Invisible Girl?" (v1 #21), while Mr Fantastic and the {{Sub-Mariner}} 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".
* MyBrainIsBig: One of the consequences of super-evolution in "What if the Avengers lost the Evolution War?" (v2 #1).
* 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!"
* OppressiveStatesOfAmerica: What CaptainAmerica awakens to in "What if CaptainAmerica were not revived until today?" (v1 #44) -- published, perhaps coincidentally, in 1984.
* PersonalityPowers: "What if the Fantastic Four had different super powers?" (v1 #6) presumes that the ComicBook/FantasticFour have Personality Powers, then explores what might have happened if different aspects of their personality had been at the forefront, giving them different powers.
* OurPresidentsAreDifferent:
** "What if Captain America were elected President?" (v1 #26) has Cap accept nomination and defeat Ronald Reagan and Jimmy Carter to win the presidency. Rogers is the ultimate President Personable and President Action, as epitomized by both his inspirational inaugural speech ''and'' the fact that he takes off in the middle of it to disarm and capture his would-be assassin! After which:
---> '''Secret Service Agent #1:''' And we're supposed to be guarding ''him''?\\
'''Secret Service Agent #2:''' Yeah! But just seeing him makes me feel... ''safer'' somehow.
** "What if Captain America were not the only super soldier in World War II?" (v2, #28) also has Captain America elected President -- but this time it's actually the Red Skull in disguise, and things don't go so well.
* PoisonousPerson: In "What if Captain Marvel had not died?" (v2 #14), [[{{CaptainMar-Vell}} Captain Marvel]] was cured of cancer. Unfortunately, everyone around him starts getting sick with cancer and it's contagious. He caused plagues on Earth, the Skrull, and the Kree before he realized what was going on.
* PowerIncontinence: Averted in ''In the Shadows'' (v2, #90), where a young Scott Summers didn't suffer the head injury that took away the ability to shut off his optic blast, due to the fact that his parents escaped the Shi'ar spaceship that tried to abduct them.
* PresidentEvil: President fake-Captain-America in "What if Captain America were not the only super soldier in World War II?" (v2, #28).
* PsychoElectricEel: In "What if the Spider had been bitten by a radioactive human?", Electro's FunnyAnimal counterpart was an electric eel.
* {{Pun}}: Some of the one-panel-shots from the facetious #34 issues, notably "What if ComicBook/{{Spider-Man}} ahad married the ComicBook/BlackWidow?".[[note]]Naturally, [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spider_cannibalism#Females_eating_males Black Widow ate him]].[[/note]]
* RageAgainstTheHeavens: "What if Dr. Doom kept the Beyonder's powers?" (in ''What If: Secret Wars'') featured DoctorDoom [[AGodAmI retaining the Beyonder's power]], plus a few [[MineralMacGuffin extra trinkets]], then taking on the status quo all the way up to [[PhysicalGod the Celestials]].
* ReedRichardsIsUseless: Some stories attempt to justify the trope by showing what might happen if heroes had shared the wealth. In "What if Iron Man went public?" (v2 #64), Tony Stark shares his technology with the world; it has many good effects, but also falls into the hands of warmongers and supervillains, and Stark is driven to seriously consider extremely drastic measures to undo the damage.
* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: In "What if Caiera the Oldstrong had survived the destruction on Sakaar instead of Hulk?", a story in the ''What If: PlanetHulk'' one-shot.
** In "What If Mary Jane Was Shot Instead of Aunt May?", a take on the ''Back In Black'' storyline, has Spider-Man CurbStompBattle everyone between him and Kingpin after his wife is killed by Fisk's assassin.
* SealedEvilInADuel: The conclusion of "What if Set had Come to Earth?" (v2 #25).
* SequelEpisode: The series had a few, returning to the timeline of earlier issues (or to a new timeline which resembled the earlier issue up until the point the sequel started).
** The very first issue, ''What if Spider-Man joined the Fantastic Four?", had two (contradictory) sequels. In "What if Sub-Mariner had married the Invisible Girl?" (v1 #21), Sue Storm, feeling like a fifth wheel since Spidey joined, leaves the FF and marries Prince Namor the {{Sub-Mariner}}. In "What if the Fantastic Five had invaded the Negative Zone?" (v2 #35), Sue stays with the team and the Fantastic Five take on {{Annihilus}} and DoctorDoom.
** "What if Conan the Barbarian walked the Earth today?" (v1 #13), in which ConanTheBarbarian is temporarily transported to 20th-century New York, was followed up by "What if Conan the Barbarian were stranded in the 20th Century?" (v1 #43). Rather than a direct sequel, it's a what-if of a what-if: What if Conan's trip to the 20th century had been permanent instead of temporary?
* SkullForAHead: The White Skull in the "What if Captain America fought in [[TheAmericanCivilWar the Civil War]]?" one-shot.
* SpiritualSequel: Of a sort. Vol.2's issue 92 was revisited in two different ways in the main Marvel Universe. Joshua Guthrie was given a mutant power and became a student at the Xavier Institute, and a teenager named Juston Seyfert would find an abandoned Sentinel and repair it.
* StageMagician: "What if ComicBook/DoctorStrange were an ordinary magician?" (v1 #34). Baron Mordo's betrayal of the Ancient One is interpreted as him performing his latest trick -- [[SawAWomanInHalf sawing the Ancient One in half]] -- and the Dread Dormammu's great master plan comes down to Strange having to PickACard.
* StoryBranchFavoritism: Played with in the series, where writers were able to print several stories based on [[AlternateHistory Alternate Histories]] of the established canon. Although most of these were stand alone stories, popular entries such as SpiderGirl gained their own series in time.
* SuicidalCosmicTemperTantrum: "What if the Avengers had become the pawns of Korvac?" (v1 #32) ends with a giant Korvac sitting on Earth in a state of bottomless despair, and holding the Ultimate Nullifier. He thinks of everything that ever was, is and will be, and presses the button.
* SuicideByCop: ComicBook/ThePunisher in "The Day I Killed Spider-Man" (v2 #58), after he realises he's been tricked into killing a hero. Specifically, he tracks down the villain who tricked him, and kills him in full view of a bunch of cops who have just warned him they'll open fire if he makes an aggressive move.
* SwordOverHead: Subverted in "What if Wolverine had married Mariko?" (v2 #43) when Wolverine has Mariko's murderer (Her own brother, the Silver Samurai, no less) at his mercy -- he lowers the sword not because he's decided to let the man live, but because he's decided it would be more fitting to do the deed with his own claws. Snikt.
-->'''Wolverine''': Nah, just decided, the honor sword's too good for you. It shouldn't be stained with a traitor's blood. Me? I'm not so fussy.
* TakeMeInstead: "What if the Avengers had been formed during the 1950s?" (v1 #9) sees the hostage DwightDEisenhower beg the Yellow Claw to kill him instead of Jimmy Woo. While the Yellow Claw admires the President's bravery, it would be ridiculous to get rid of his trump card like that.
* ThisIsMySide: A story in ''What If: PlanetHulk'' had a one-man version; Hulk lands on the planet the Illuminati meant to send him to, and he and Bruce Banner get into a back-and-forth war of screwing each other over. Eventually Hulk wakes up and sees that Bruce pulled this trope.
* ThematicSeries: Aside from the Watcher, the series had no recurring characters and usually took place in a different reality each issue. Also, unlike most comic series, there was no ongoing story arcs with one exception. The series simply focused on the concept of "What if" scenerios.
* ThunderingHerd: In the story "What If Everyone Who Ever Had Been an Avenger Had Remained an Avenger?" (in the gag issue #34), the entire hundred-plus man superteam responds to a convenience store robbery... and exit Avengers Mansion in a Thundering Herd.
* TheUnmasking: Occurs in several issues.
* TimeTravel: The "Mirror Mirror" miniseries asked, for example: "What if the Fantastic Four were cosmonauts?" "What if Captain America fought in the Civil War?", "What if Daredevil came from Feudal Japan?" and "What if Wolverine were the Punisher (with him around the time of Al Capone instead of present day)?" Different seeds for hero ideas were scattered in the past and in different countries at times.
* WhatIf: The underlying trope of the series.
* WingedHumanoid: Ben Grimm in "What if the Fantastic Four had different super powers?" (v1 #6).
* WomenAreWiser: Inverted. When Barbara Ketch becomes Ghost Rider instead of her brother, she proves to be far more violent and needs to be stopped.
* WorthlessYellowRocks: In "What if Conan the Barbarian were stranded in the 20th Century?" (v1 #43), ConanTheBarbarian is stranded in the 20th century, where he inadvertently mugs a New Yorker, who tosses all his money at Conan and runs. Conan ignores the hundreds of dollars in bills and keeps the 85˘ in change.
* YouWannaGetSued: The punchline to the gag about "What if Wonder Man were a Woman and Power Man were a Girl?"
-->"Dear Marvel: Our lawyers advise you not to print this gag! Love, your '''[[DCComics D]]'''istinguished '''[[DCComics C]]'''ompetition."
