The narrator of the show, Uatu the Watcher describes how different the world Hulk was sent into. It was uncanny that the place was deserted and the heroes are full of zombies. The cliffhanger in the end, as seen by Uatu, meant that it might be the end of such universe. Will it be?

It was a surprise to see Scott, especially when it was shown that he was the second person next to Hank Pym to become a zombie. He was such a comedic relief; his dad jokes and zombie puns were superb! One could easily go laughing on the floor. Well, classic Scott. Only a head cured by Vision, his new companion is the cape of Doctor Strange flying him to get him somewhere else. He survived with Spider-Man and T'Challa.

The Winter Soldier, it's no surprise he is one of the survivors in the apocalypse. He's a killing machine and he can shoot guns. He knows how to put the zombies to their final resting place that he did this to Captain America and took his shield. Still ruthless as ever, he sacrificed himself distracting Wanda so the rest could go to the jet. His fate remains unknown as Wanda threw him far away, not seen whether he survived or not.

The one who found the cure, Vision sent out signals to other survivors about it. He was based in New Jersey, the place where Arnim Zola was found by Cap and Nat in Captain America: Winter Soldier, and there he figured out a way to reverse the process of being zombified. However, it turned out that he has a different agenda: feed the survivors to Wanda. In the end, he, himself, took out the mind stone off of his forehead to save the world.

The head of the Dora Milaje, Okoye, is one of the few survivors who remained and it's no surprise considering the fighting prowess she has.

In the end, she found T'Challa but ended up slaughtered by Wanda.

Happy remains to be a personal chauffer of everyone, even in the zombie apocalypse. Presumably, he stayed with Spider-Man or was with him when the zombies attacked. However, when they reached the train station and split up, he was an unfortunate casualty when zombie Hawkeye targeted him and the only weapon that he had was a hand blaster from Stark.

Being the agent that she was, being a survivor in the zombie apocalypse would be easy for her, unless a hero zombie gets in the way. For Sharon Carter, this is what happened. He came face to face with Hawkeye and got hit, almost being a casualty in the process. It was Cap that took her to being a zombie and Hope got inside of her mouth to kill her off. "I'm covered with Sharon," said Hope.

The friend of Scott Lang survived the apocalypse as well. He was their machine guy. He compared the zombies to Baba Yaga, a Russian folklore, like what he described Ghost in the film. In the end. She got eaten by Wanda when she got out of her enclosure.

Of all the characters, only Peter was not voiced by his real-life counterpart. Tom Holland's contract would possibly be breached if he would do the voice of Peter in What If..? as his portrayal only includes that of films. Instead of facing another lawsuit, Disney deemed it best to have Hudson Thames voice Spider-Man, he sounds like Tom Holland, too!

Spider-Man is the heart of the episode. He was their ray of sunshine in the darkest days of Earth. He remained with a jolly personality and in the end, he survived with it. He recognized the loss of Uncle Ben and all the ones he loved, including Aunt May who presumably became a zombie. Hope saw hope in Peter. With the mind stone in his hands, they fly to Wakanda not knowing the threat they would be facing there.

Marvel's What If..? Episode 5 is now streaming on Disney+.
