In 1989, Marvel Comics revived its alternate universe anthology series, What If?, for a second run of stories. Replicating the formula of its predecessor, What If? Vol 2 told imaginative tales which put a spin on established Marvel continuity.

These tales ranged from What if Namor had joined the Fantastic Four? to What if Spider-Man had kept his six arms?, and What if the Vision had destroyed the Avengers?. They were intriguing and inventive alternate reality yarns, which made the comic a joy to read.

What If? Vol 2. ran for a period of nine years, ending in 1998. During its time on comic book shelves, the comic amassed 114 regular editions, as well as one-off special.

If you’re keen to find out what the titles of all those comics are, then you are in luck. In this post I am listing all of the comics in Volume 2, for you to cast your eyes over.
