In What If S1E1:

In What If S1E1, a being known only as The Watcher takes us into an alternate universe where Steve Rogers never became Captain America. When Steve is injured, Peggy Carter receives Dr. Erskine’s serum to become the world’s first super soldier. Fighting back against Col. Flynn and his misogynistic attitude, Peggy mounts an attack against the nazis, led by Johann Schmidt, and reclaims the Tesseract for the Allies. Along with Howard Stark & Steve Rogers in a HYDRA stomper suit, Captain Carter liberates a group of POWs, which includes Bucky Barnes and the Howling Commandos. Together, they defeat Red Skull & ultimately end the war. But Captain Carter sacrifices herself to do so and is transported through time and space by the Tesseract. She ends up in the Avengers facility in 2012, face-to-face with SHIELD director Nick Fury and Agent Clint Barton (Hawkeye).
