Marvel Comics

Marvel Comics' popular What If...? series of books has been optioned as a television series for Disney+, leaving many fans wondering what stories might make their way to the small screen. The series will be an animated anthology, which will take much of its content directly from the comics.

That being said, there is a lot of content to choose from, and many of the stories written in What If...? over the years have gone on to influence the Marvel multiverse, which suggests the show could adapt pretty much anything and everything into the new series.

Whatever Marvel and Disney decide to do, the older comics have been cast back into the light leaving many to look back on the amazing series. Fans unfamiliar with them are wondering what they were all about, while those who read the books are considering which stories might be adapted for the new show.

This list compiles the 10 best What If...? stories ever written, and though the TV show won't be arriving until a while from now, it's never a bad time to talk about Marvel's best What If? tales.
