What If EponymousKid Liveblogged What If...?
AND SO IT WAS ON THIS WORLD. BUT WHAT IF...?
...I thought you got banned?

You couldn't send me a PM or something? Anyway, assuming you're talking about my brief site ban from like a month ago, yeah, that happened. Eddie changed his mind on appeal and I haven't caused any trouble since. Why, something wrong? Because I don't vandalize, I don't edit war... not seeing the problem here.

What If... Spider-Man Joined the Fantastic Four? (Vol. 1, #1)
Well, this is certainly a change of pace from your Noir series. Definitely more...well, I want to say 'whimsical', but there's probably a better word choice. Getting back on track, I thought that your comments on the work were quite enjoyable, and I hope that you continue to find enjoyment in your Liveblogs.

Hilarious In Hindsight update! Since I wrote this, Spider-Man really has joined the Fantastic Four proper as a replacement for his now-dead friend Johnny.

What If... Thor Battled Conan the Barbarian? (vol 1, #39)
Wow. Can't say that I know much of Conan myself; in fact, I probably know less about Thor than I'd like to as well. But I must agree that this particular issue sounds both awesome and dramatic, and I certainly hope that future issues you report on don't pale too badly in comparison.

I doubt that'll be much of a problem, since I'm specifically picking the best, most notable, most memorable, and worst What If...? has to offer. Not a dull moment in sight, I assure you.

What If... The Fantastic Four had Different Super Powers? (Vol. 1, #6)
Evidently, this world's Doc Doom can't get over a grudge either, so he was going to get revenge on Reed Richards sooner or later as soon as he located him, and had little statues of Reed made to maim in the meantime.

I figured it was something like that. Still, it was pretty silly

I find it interesting that the the original Fantastic Four's powers are apparently aspects of their personality made literal, while these 'What If' versions seem to be mainly based on their interests. Either way, I must admit that I enjoyed reading this entry, and I agree that it's a bit of a shame that the future adventures of this team shall never be told...well, unless someone like you starts Running The Asylum, that is.

What If... Dr. Strange had never become Master of the Mystic Arts? (V. 1, #40)
A lot of the cool imagery in this issue is lifted almost straight from the early Ditko Dr. Strange stories. Whatever else you might say about Ditko, he really knew how to draw weirdness.

I find it a tad funny that, while showing others the unappreciated value of a comic book series through a Liveblog, your own interests have just expanded as well. And I must admit, with otherworldly opponents and mystical powers such as those in this one issue, this Dr. Strange fellow sounds like he's perfectly suited for marvelous adventures that I wouldn't mind taking a gander at.

What If... the Avengers Fought Evil During the 1950s? (Vol.1, #9)
You know, that ending really makes me think about how I'd react if I lived in this kind of universe. I mean, I'd certainly be as confused as the next guy if I had to rely on a rather large ape to save the country from total destruction. But if I knew that he was fighting against the animate skeleton of a freakin' demon, I'd probably let the whole 'non-human' thing slide. When it comes to what little prejudice I have, it stands no chance when you put the forces of the netherworld into the equation. Then again, I could just be babbling nonsense.
EndarkCuli
I get where you're coming from, but frankly I think Eisenhower's decision makes sense given the setting and time period. Well, to a certain point; I really don't see why the Avengers had to stop working together. Couldn't they just stay under the radar or something?

What If... The Vision Had Destroyed the Avengers/Wonder Man had not Died? (Vol. 2, #5)
Yeah, What If... tended to either the Downer Ending (everything went much much worse) or In Spite Of A Nail (the ending winds up being 95% like the way it played out originally.)
SKJAM
Rest assured I'm going to touch on a few more of those "mostly the same" issues in the future. And, I guess, the ones where everything goes wrong, too.
