After the last couple, it was nice to have a lighter episode.

Thor at a party..? Is he going to be challenged to a fight by Arthur Dent..?

I really hope they do a "What if..." where they show the alternate reality where the 'Captain Marvel' movie wasn't crap.

So, uhh, Uatu was...surprised?!

I'm guessing VisUltron with all the stones is far, far more powerful than The Watcher realized.

That was a lighthearted episode in contrast to the Marvel Zombies.  Now I know a lot of it was played for gags, but there was an interesting subtext to it all.  Party Thor was able to unite hundreds of worlds,, many of them at war in other timelines, under the Party banner.  Heck, they even came together with "purpose" when the threat of mom coming home happened.  I made the mistake of looking at the IMDB listing for the final episode, so I got spoiled on who that final threat was in the episode.  It will be fun to see how that is addressed!

I think it's just Ultron. Vision was created by Thor, but this dude is from somewhere else given that Uatu was surprised to see him.

I guess this is why we're gonna get Guardians of the Multiverse.

Vision was created by Ultron. Vision was just jumpstarted by Thor when he was taken away from Ultron.

I liked Party Thor, it was dumb, I chuckled a lot.  It was a puffball of nonsense and that was fine.  It was the What If series in a nutshell.  All the episodes of the What If series, no matter how serious, are also nonsensical nothings.

Disney had a real opportunity to at least have a few episodes to pull variant examinations of events in the MCU.  What if the Avengers were able to pull off the gauntlet before the snap.  What if the Sovereign finished Adam Warlock in time to administer justice on the Guardians and they were taken out of the Infinity War/Endgame events.  What if the Guardians were delayed and didn't stumble on Thor in space. What if the Avengers decided not to travel back in time to get the stones or being inexperienced with time travel they botched the trip and had to face the TVA.  What if Thanos made it to Asgard as the events of Ragnarok were unfolding and Thanos had to face Hela and Surtur to get the Space stone.

They should call the series "Why?" instead.  Why is this story being told?  The Agent Carter episode mostly goes nowhere.  Same with Black Panther being chosen by Yondu.  Why?  How would Yondu mistake a human child for a half Celestial.  Why wouldn't Warmonger be the better option since he's out in the world and not hidden behind a vibranium energy shield? If Yondu got BP by mistake and not Peter Quill, then would Ego find Quill and would he embrace the celestial power?   There were some real opportunities that were completely missed.

What If falls in the same pit Wandavision did.  A lot of filler material with no consequence.  Wandavision spent half the series on nonsense filler material, then raced to tell a story in the back half of the season.

Meh, I like both but I think it's a lot of waste with very little in the way of story telling.  Wasted opportunities both.

Meh, meh, meh.

But I liked Party Thor's Loki most of all.  So it was a fine, just fine, episode with some chuckles.
 
2021-09-22 5:14:06 PM  
This episode was the most absurd and stupid thing I've seen in quite a while.  The idea that Loki being raised by frost giants turned the Universe into a place of friendship and civilization-destroying parties?  I f*cking loved it.

nocturn:

How would Yondu mistake a human child for a half Celestial.

That was explained in the episode.  Yondu delegated the kidnapping to Kraglin who mistook the energy signature of vibranium inside cloaked Wakanda for Quill's and took the kid he found.

/FOOM!

Also, what if instead of Steve Rogers being trapped in a suit, Tony Stark survives the snap but is forced to live in an Iron Man suit for the rest of his life.  How about a fun episode with Dr. Strange and Stark experimenting with the stones and arguing whether they are science or magic.

Oops, missed that detail, but Peter Quill still being found by Ego.  What if?  So BP is now a ravager, PQ is left wholly to the influences of Ego and accepts the celestial mind view.  There are better stories to tell then what we got.

Strange's episode and Marvel Zombies were the only two that had real weight.

AdrienVeidt: scottydoesntknow: So, uhh, Uatu was...surprised?!

I'm guessing VisUltron with all the stones is far, far more powerful than The Watcher realized.

He's the Watcher, not the Pre-Cognitionator.


He's been described as basically omniscient, able to see everything at once, which is how he knows, in this series, which stories would be interesting to follow. He sees every reality as they're occurring. Strange, after absorbing every power imaginable, reaches the point of only being able to hear him, and that's reaching a level of being able to destroy a universe.

When VisUltron shows up, he's shocked. That could very well mean he didn't see the event where Ultron succeeds, gathers the stones, and then goes stomping around everywhere. I'm guessing this would have to be happening the same universe as Party Thor, since stones haven't shown a way to jump between universes. It would be akin to Stephen King reading It after he's just finished writing, and seeing a chapter he didn't write that ended up in there.

I'm not sure if that will feature in one of the next two, but that's the first time he expressed actual surprise. I thought it was a neat development and might lead to some arc in the final episodes dealing with Uatu himself.

His death is an absolute point. The furthest he ever got was the unsnappening.

I don't know if it's the alcohol talking, but that episode was all over the place.  It's so weird on who they get for the voice cast. While they're pretty close to catching them, the people they get for Iron Man, Spider Man, and a few others are close, but they get into the uncanny valley of being not quite right.

/Gets a sad every time he hears Chadwick Boseman

I assume it's some sort of budgetary thing on who they do and don't get. Bautista claims they didn't even call him

In the comics, it's known that Uatu only Watches Earth (and the Sol system overall) as there is an entire race of Watchers assigned to Watch all the other worlds.  As we started as a po-dunk mudhole on the back-ass of nowhere, we got a young and inexperienced Watcher, which is why he interferes in the comics.  He wouldn't know about stuff happening off-world until it comes to our system, although he can track Earthicans once they leave it.

The episode was a good change of pace from the seriousness of the previous few, though Bro Thor got on my nerves a bit, mostly because I can't stand 'bro culture' or 'drunk/stoner/party culture'.

I'm thinking that the end scene with Ultron/Vision was referencing the lack of protection that the Asgardians would have provided, which gave rise to such a thing.
 
2021-09-23 11:50:36 AM  
So the Ultron-Vision at the end is shown to have all of the Infinity Stones. Is that something that happened in the comics or is it just a "Really bad things are about to happen for everyone" ending for this otherwise lighthearted episode?
 
2021-09-23 4:09:37 PM  
A reminder that Infinity Stones are only powerful in their own universe.

Infinity Stones from a different universe are paperweights.

I don't think it's happened in the comics, under the theory that only 'living' beings can use them.

skyotter: A reminder that Infinity Stones are only powerful in their own universe.

A hypothesis that since that was said by a TVA clerk it may have been *enforced* by the TVA.  Now that they're under new management that might could be changed.  Comic writers feel little need to hold true to previous writer's edicts.

nocturn: If Yondu got BP by mistake and not Peter Quill, then would Ego find Quill and would he embrace the celestial power?


No.

Ego only found out about (not "detected" but heard news of) Quill because of Quill's run in with the Power Stone.

Since Star Lord T'Challa had already convinced Thanos of the error of his ways, and so never sent Ronin to steal the Power Stone, and Ronin's Power Stone enhanced assault on Xandar never happened.

So young Peter Quill grew up an ordinary boy in Kansas, raised by his grandfather after his mother died.
