What If Marvel Wasn't Dumb?

I'm convinced that Marvel gets their "new" ideas from old What If? comics.

Case in point:

Hmmmm, seem familar? This comic, like most of the line is probably retarded and probably ends with:
A)The Universe Blowing Up,
B) Galactus,
C) Both A & B or
D) Someone joins S.H.I.E.L.D.

They are all like that. All of them. Some of them even start with option D. Its gotta be about 20% of the line that features the tagline "What if INSERT NAME had become an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.?"

I tell you what if. It would suck ass. That's what if.

You want a headache? Go back and look at your old What If? comics. You want a migraine? Read them. It'll make you think, though. You'll think, "What if Marvel wasn't dumb?"

But, always remember:

It was cool when Korvac destroyed the universe, but then Marvel decided it had captured lightning in a bottle and ended every What If story that way.

Except for the ones where the character joined SHIELD...

You're on to something with the Hulk the Barbarian theory though. It's 10 years behind DC, when they used to take old "Imaginary Stories" and put them in continuity.

Those updates sucked too

Yeah. And what if Hulk altered reality by punching it? Wouldn't that be dumb? Stupid marvel.
