CanWeGetSomeToast (on X, formerly Twitter) shared the information for the episode in question, “What If… Hela found the Ten Rings?.” According to the post, the episode will see Hela be “kicked out of Asgard like in Thor: Ragnarok.” However, rather than finding herself in Hel, Hela winds up in Ta-Lo from Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings and is accepted by its inhabitants, also learning their martial arts. The post then mentions that Odin will invade and “war between Asgard and Ta-Lo will break out,” while also bringing up that Hela’s armor will be “all white instead of black and green.”
