What If…? (Vol. 1)

    (Marvel, 1977-1985)
™ and ©1977 Marvel Entertainment Group

In many of the great epics of Marvel “history,” we often are left to wonder, “Yes, but what if…?” What if the X-Men’s Phoenix had not died? What if Captain America, frozen from World War II, had only now been found? What if the Fantastic Four had never taken that fateful ride in space?

Now many of these questions can be answered. In What If…, we can explore the alternate realities that spring from those turning points in Marvel history.
