Marvel fans, get ready for a surprising twist in the world of Steve Rogers, also known as Captain America, in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). While many believed that Steve Rogers had his well-deserved happy ending in Avengers: Endgame, Marvel’s animated series, What If…?, has thrown a curveball by introducing an alternate version of the beloved character.

Hasbro has now released a new Marvel Legends action figure that sheds light on Steve Rogers’ return in What If…? Season 2, potentially revealing exciting developments.

What Happened in What If…? Season 1?

In the first season of Marvel’s What If…?, we encountered an alternate Earth where Steve Rogers had a different destiny. Instead of becoming the iconic Captain America, this version of Steve donned a massive Iron Man-inspired suit called the Hydra Stomper and fought alongside Peggy Carter in World War II.

While this alternate version of Steve was intriguing, the character remained largely shrouded in shadow during the first season, leaving fans curious about his fate.

Hasbro, known for its popular Marvel Legends action figure line, has now unveiled a new figure that provides a fresh glimpse of Steve Rogers’ design for What If…? Season 2.

What If...?

This fully-articulated figure is part of Hasbro’s Build-A-Figure series, meaning that each character in the wave comes with a piece that can be assembled to create the complete Hydra Stomper figure.

The figure even includes a swappable head sculpt featuring an unhelmeted Steve Rogers likeness, styled animatedly but still reminiscent of Chris Evans.

The Marvel Legends Hydra Stomper figure is appropriately scaled to tower over regular-sized action figures, accurately capturing the imposing presence of this alternate version of Steve Rogers.

What If…? Season 2 – What to Expect

While the release date for What If…? Season 2 remains uncertain, one thing is clear – it will delve further into Steve Rogers’ story and his Hydra Stomper.

This season could potentially explore a darker narrative, drawing parallels to Bucky Barnes, who was brainwashed and became a threat to the heroes. Steve Rogers’ return promises to bring fresh twists and turns to the MCU.

What If...?

The surprise return of Steve Rogers in What If…? Season 2, as hinted by the new Marvel Legends action figure, has sparked excitement among Marvel fans. This unexpected development promises a thrilling continuation of Steve Rogers’ story in an alternate universe.

Stay tuned for more updates on the release date and plot details of What If…? Season 2 as Marvel Studios and Disney+ prepare to deliver another dose of animated MCU excitement.
