In the episode titled “What If…Strange Supreme Intervened?” from Season 2, it is revealed that Strange Supreme attempts to resurrect his lost universe from Season 1, using dark sources of power.

Only through his own sacrifice does he manage to conquer his grief-filled demons and successfully bring back his world.
Strange Supreme’s Plan Explained
Strange Supreme’s plan involves using a multiversal forge to rebirth his reality. Initially claiming to contain universe-killers, Strange’s true mission is darker and less altruistic. He captures hero and villain variants to feed his multiversal forge, aiming to resurrect his universe and bring back his lost love, Christine Palmer. The captured Kahhori, a Tesseract-powered Mohawk warrior, becomes a key element in his plan, leading to a confrontation with Captain Carter.
How Captain Carter and Kahhori Defeated Strange Supreme
Captain Carter, armed with the Infinity Stones from Season 1’s variant of Erik Killmonger, is already powerful. During the final battle, released variants provide Peggy and Kahhori with additional weapons, including Hela’s crown, a Hulk-Thor variant’s sword, Mjolnir, The Ten Rings, and more. Despite Strange Supreme transforming into a massive winged demon, Captain Carter, wielding all six Infinity Stones, manages to create an opening. Peggy’s attempt to reach the man Strange once led to his ultimate sacrifice, bringing back the destroyed reality.
What’s Next For Captain Carter And The Watcher
The final scene of Marvel’s What If…? Season 2, Episode 9 suggests Uatu taking Captain Carter back to her original reality. However, Captain Carter proposes taking a scenic route to explore other possibilities before the introduction of the MCU’s new multiversal tree. This serves as a strong hint for What If…? Season 3, already confirmed. A released clip features Bucky Barnes and Red Guardian, anticipating more exciting realities within the MCU multiverse. While the release date may be uncertain, fans are eager for the potential revelations in the upcoming season.
