What If…? Season 2 Director Settles Major Infinity Stones Debate

The second season of Marvel’s What If…? was released on Disney+ last month, and there’s no denying Peggy Carter/Captain Carter (Hayley Atwell) has become the star of the series. In the finale, “What If… Stranger Supreme Interviened?,” Peggy gets a major power upgrade when fighting Strange Supreme (Benedict Cumberbatch). Peggy wields all of the Infinity Stones, which caused a debate among Marvel fans. Many didn’t understand how she could wield all of the stones and come out unscathed when they killed Tony Stark in Avengers: Endgame and damaged Hulk’s arm. Recently, What If…? director Bryan Andrews appeared on ComicBook.com‘s Phase Zero podcast, and explained how Peggy was able to use the Infinity Stones.

“You have to really freeze frame and take a look. When Kahhori sends the Stones to her, they’re surrounded in Kahhori’s power so there’s a layer of Space Stone energy,” Andrews explained in the interview. Of course, Kahhori (Devery Jacobs) is the original superhero who debuted during the new season of What If…? You can watch the clip in the tweet below:
