One of Marvel’s most popular wacky comic books, What If? is heading to Disney’s streaming service as an animated series. /Film reports that the series, based on the alternate universe comic book, will be overseen by Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige.

What If? was Marvel’s series that went into the strange, dramatic, often comedic and sometimes tragic stories of the Marvel Unvierse which could have happened, but didn’t. Examples were stories like “What If Professor X Had Become the Juggernaut” or “What if Venom Possessed the Punisher?” The series first launched in 1977 and has run over 200 issues over the years. The new series will explore how the Marvel Cinematic Universe might have unfolded if key moments in its history had not occurred as they did in canon, and (obviously) will not be canon stories set in the MCU.

Disney+ is set to be the home of a few Marvel series, including one focusing on Loki. The service launches later this year.
