New premiere of the Marvel Cinematic Universe this Wednesday with the sixth episode of What If…? on the streaming service Disney+. On this occasion the central characters were Killmonger, voiced by Michael B. Jordan, and Tony Stark, although without the interpretation of Robert Downey Jr. It was another vibrant episode and the fans made it clear on the networks are their reactions.
This program takes the viewer to know worlds totally different from the conventional reality of the MCU, something that can be given thanks to the power of animation. Today’s delivery was called “What if … Killmonger rescued Tony Stark?”, with the following synopsis: “An American soldier named Killmonger rescues Tony Stark when his Humvee is attacked in Afghanistan”.
When the antagonist of Black Panther interrupts the events in Afghanistan, at the same time displaces any future project of Stark to become Iron Man, which means that in that universe the Avengers could not get together. Killmonger serves as a US Navy SEAL and manages to gain Tony’s trust after revealing Obadiah Stane’s plans against him.
This leads to Killmonger conveniently introducing him to an automated combat robot under the excuse that it is his doctoral thesis. The genius, millionaire, playboy and philanthropist helps him without problems by contacting the arms dealer, Ulysses Klaue, since they need vibranium, but it is all about a trap in which James Rhodes and T’Challa die, with the voice of the late Chadwick. Boseman, and until then we did not know his true motivation.
Upon returning to the United States, he betrays Stark and assassinates him, something that intensifies a war with Wakanda that had begun after Rhodes’ death. Killmonger arrives with Klaue to his nation, but he also turns his back on him and kills him to offer it as proof that he is no longer with the Americans and only wants to return home. The war conflict unfolds and finally the villain achieves what he was looking for from the beginning: to be the next Black Panther.
