Meet Kahhori, Marvel's first original superheroine for the What If...? series

Marvel has introduced its new superheroine Kahhori, a character not born in the comics and specially designed for What If…? Season 2, the multiversal animated series that is part of the MCU. This is how Marvel has presented her, sharing the story of this Native American who is closely related to the Tesseract. Let's learn more about Kahhori and what we can expect from her in the future from Marvel Studios.

This is Kahhori, an original What If…? character

Kahhori will be the protagonist of an episode focusing on the indigenous tribes of North America before the arrival of the Europeans, leading to a story about what would happen if the Tesseract fell into the hands of a young Mohawk girl in that time and region of the planet. It is then that Kahhori will begin to search for the origins of her powers.

The episode was created in collaboration with Mohawk Nation members such as historian Doug George and Mohawk language expert Cecelia King to ensure its cultural authenticity: "It tells a remarkable story from a Native-Mohawk perspective which is truly unique and historical, and will give the viewers a new, challenging and entertaining perspective on this land's first peoples. The story is dramatic, the characters fully realized, and the action sequences are breathtaking," says George. "The episode is exceptional in another sense--it is done with the complete cooperation of the Mohawk people from dialogue to adornment," the historian assures.

In addition, episode writer Ryan Little adds, "Kahhori, pronounced ‘KAH-HORTI,’ is a real, Wolf Clan name, meaning ‘she stirs the forest’ or is someone who motivates those around her. In her debut adventure, Kahhori will have to live up to her name to recruit powerful allies into the fight to save her people and change the course of history forever.”

At this time, there is no premiere date for the second season of What If…? on Disney+ as part of the MCU.
