Where Will Fans See Kahhori in the MCU?

As previously mentioned, Kahhori is an original superhero that will be debuting in the MCU's animated What If...? series on Disney+.

Since she is an original character, that means that she isn't an adaptation of any character from Marvel Comics, and her story will be entirely new and fresh when she appears in the upcoming show.

Due to her being Native American, it is possible that she could appear in the episode that is set in 1602, which also could be the same one that a version of Peggy Carter is in.

It is possible that Kahhori could also appear in future MCU projects, but not likely. If she is in the 1602 episode, she will most likely be a hero from the past.

The actual abilities and powers that Kahhori will possess are unknown at the time, and those most likely won't be revealed until the release date for the upcoming season of the show is closer.

Season 2 of What If...? is expected to hit Disney+ sometime in early 2024.
