Funko unveiled a new addition to its collection for the streaming series featuring one of the fan-favorite characters of the show. The new Funko Pop! What If…? Zombie Iron Man Glow-In-The-Dark (GITD)Funko Pop! Vinyl Figure is an Amazon Exclusive depicts Anthony Stark from Earth-2149.
The fifth episode of What If…?, “What Would Happen If… Zombies!,” relies heavily on comics, the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and famous pop culture productions.
Released last Wednesday (8), the highly anticipated chapter imagines a plague of zombies, which infects the members of the Avengers and causes the surviving heroes to search for a cure.
The entire narrative of the episode references the Marvel Zombies comic book (2005) by Robert Kirkman and Sean Phillips. The issue also explores stories with zombies that possess a certain consciousness.
The zombies in What If…? aren’t hyper-intelligent, but the Avengers members sure know how to execute their abilities and use them to their advantage in hunting people down to eat. Falcon can fly, Hawkeye can use a bow and arrow, and Captain America remains skilled with the shield.
Bucky Barnes is forced to confront his zombie best friend when the makeshift Avengers team tries to take a train to Camp Lehigh – and discover more than a bit of conflict along the way. The character is emotionally affected when Okoye kills Falcon in front of him, but everything gets more complicated when Steve Rogers succumbs.
The Cloak of Levitation is the first hero when Bruce Banner is attacked, causing Wong to cut off his head with a portal. However, the accessory is a key figure throughout the episode – mainly for saving Spider-Man from being crushed by a train and eaten by zombies.
While the surviving Avengers were leaving for Wakanda, Thanos made it to Earth after collecting five Infinity Stones – although the villain also became a zombie. Regardless of how he turned undead, the chapter suggests how the character became a deadly enemy… as always!
