All of Marvel’s T.V. Series

Spoiler Alert

Ever since Avengers: Endgame, Marvel has released five TV series, some that weren’t the best, and also some that will go down in all of TV series histories.


The T.V.-Series that Marvel has made are WandaVision, Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Loki, What If, and now Hawkeye. The one with the highest IMDb is Loki, the one with the highest Rotten Tomatoes was What If, and the one with the lowest Rotten Tomatoes was The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.


So let’s start with WandaVision. During the first two episodes, Wanda and Vision are living with each other in the ‘50s or ‘60s while both Wanda and Vision still have their powers. Everything seems fine but then some weird stuff happens, foreshadowing the next episodes. Then, they jump to the ‘70s and ‘80s in the third episode, and then the fourth episode takes a turn. We find out that all these weird things are actually from S.W.O.R.D., which is technically an alternative S.H.I.E.L.D. The fifth episode takes place in the ‘80s and ‘90s and the rest of the episodes are in the 2000s. Vision is convinced that something is wrong, but Wanda tries to convince him that everything is fine. This one was my personal favorite because of the cliffhangers and how everything seemed okay, but it was always eerie and mysterious like someone was controlling the people of Westview. I also loved how we got to learn about Wanda’s past after getting a glimpse of it in Avengers: Age of Ultron.


The Falcon and the Winter Soldier was technically ‘Who is going to take Cap’s role as, well, Cap.’ The main villain is Karli Morgenthau and the Flag Smashers who agree with Thanos’ idea that half of the population flourished when the other suffered, so instead of snapping with the stones, she and the Flag Smashers aim to commit genocide. Another controversy is that Sam (Falcon) gives up Cap’s shield, and John Walker, this soldier from the army, comes in, takes the shield, and pretty much makes everyone forget about Captain America. He ends up doing some bad stuff and gives up the shield to Sam who fights with Bucky (Winter Soldier) against the Flag Smasher. I did like some suit-up scenes, and how they brought back Zemo, the villain in Civil War, but I did expect more.


Loki was a very interesting series that I liked a lot except for the ending (I’ll explain why). In Endgame, Loki escapes after the Avengers go back in time to get the stones, and he is captured by the Time Keepers, who are technically people who make sure nothing wrong happens in time, and when Loki goes into the present after when he was supposed to be dead. They then recruit him to help them capture a Loki from another universe, and he later teams up with her. When they finally find the key to stop the Time Keepers, which they find out are corrupted, she screws it up and everything Loki knows becomes a memory.


The next one is What If, was the Watcher watching alternative universes. The episodes are What if… Captain Carter was the first Avenger, What If… T’Challa became Star-Lord, What If… The World Lost its Mightiest Heroes, What if… Dr. Strange Lost his Heart Instead of his Hands, What If… Zombies, What If… Killmonger saved Tony Stark, Killmonger, and What If… Thor was an only child. Episodes eight and nine are about Ultron, with Vision’s power, who destroys literally everyone, everywhere, but not in the alternate universes. When he finds out about the Watcher, all the main characters from the previous episodes team up and save, well everyone. To know more about it, read Henry Rempe’s review on it.


The newest TV show was about Hawkeye, who is in New York with his kids on Christmas, and his biggest fan, Kate Bishop, finds the Ronin suit, wears, and puts him in a lot of trouble. He has to fight someone who, like him, has hearing problems, but her father was killed by Ronin, so she wants revenge. We eventually find out that Kingpin was behind it, and they stop him. This TV show was very funny, and thrilling. 


Those are all the Marvel TV shows. I hope you enjoyed my recap on all of them.
