The show imagines what would have happened if various key events in the Marvel Cinematic Universe had happened differently. What if, for example, Peggy Carter had become Captain America — Captain Carter, in this case — instead of Steve Rogers? Or, what if Marvel Zombies, like a zombified Scarlet Witch/Wanda Maximoff, from the Marvel comic book universe had infiltrated the MCU.
