In What If S1E8:
In What If S1E8, Ultron defeated the Avengers, annihilating humanity with a nuclear holocaust. Natasha Romanoff & Clint Barton are the only two Avengers (and possibly people) left on Earth. After stealing the Infinity Stones from Thanos, Ultron becomes aware of The Watcher and the multiverse. While Ultron & his minions are out destroying other universes, Black Widow & Hawkeye head to Siberia. They resurrect Dr. Zola’s program and use his code to try and destroy Ultron, but they are unsuccessful. Clint dies in the fight, leaving Natasha alive but alone. Ultron then attacks The Watcher, who finally realizes he must intervene to save the multiverse. The Watcher allies with Supreme Strange, who is his only hope of stopping Ultron.
This episode stars Jeremy Renner, Jeffrey Wright, Lake Bell, Ross Marquand, Toby Jones, and Benedict Cumberbatch.
