It’s a fight for the soul of the city! Now that Dick Grayson has inherited more money than he could possibly need, he has an idea on how he can help the city with it-and it’s time for him to announce it to the world! But with Blüdhaven’s so beyond saving, what idea does he have that could possibly save it? Meanwhile, an unexpected figure comes into play with a plan to buy the city (and all the power that goes with it) from Blockbuster. Things are about to get messy for new public figure Dick Grayson, but maybe he can enlist some help from his “friend” Nightwing!

What If…? (Season 1 Episode 2)

Title: “What If… T’Challa Became a Star-Lord?”
Directed by: Bryan Andrews
Written by: Matthew Chauncey
Release Date : August 18, 2021


In 1988, the Ravagers are sent to Earth by the Celestial Ego to retrieve his son Peter Quill, but mistakenly abduct a young T’Challa from Wakanda. He joins them to explore the galaxy. 20 years later, T’Challa has become a famous galactic outlaw mercenary, ‘Star-Lord’, while a reformed Thanos and Korath have joined the Ravagers roster. Nebula approaches the Ravagers, proposing to steal the Embers of Genesis, cosmic dust capable of terraforming ecosystems and eradicating galactic hunger, from the new galactic kingpin Taneleer Tivan. To get close to Tivan on Knowhere, they offer him the Power Stone Orb that T’Challa obtained from Morag. In Tivan’s vast collection, T’Challa finds a Wakandan spacecraft sent to find him, revealing that Wakanda was not destroyed as Ravager leader Yondu Udonta claimed. Nebula seemingly betrays the Ravagers, leading to their temporary capture, as she executes a triple cross on Tivan to obtain the Embers. Tivan’s slave Carina frees T’Challa. The Ravagers and Carina defeat Tivan and his henchmen, the Black Order. Carina frees Tivan’s numerous captives, leaving him at their mercy. Afterward, the Ravagers travel to Wakanda, where T’Challa reunites with his family. Elsewhere on Earth, Ego approaches Quill, who is a restaurant janitor.
