Alt-History Aftermath Scenarios Implied by Media

The Strike Back TV franchise.

You‘ve got everything from a South African billionaire trying to finance a revolution to create a nuclear armed African super state in Zimbabwe, and Johannesburg narrowly escapes being destroyed in a nuclear fireball, a Terrorist group nearly carrying out a successful attack using weaponized smallpox at a NATO base, renegade North Korean fanatics nearly restarting the Korean War, Russian ultranationalists nearly starting World War Three, multiple false flag plots.....
 
The triggers have originally been sold to Conrad Knox (Charles Dance), an English billionaire and philanthropist based in South Africa, who runs the Knox Foundation, charged with disarming unstable regions. However, it becomes apparent that he is using the weapons to arm his own militia and is using the triggers to build nuclear weapons with the intent of liberating Africa "to a point where its voice is not just heard but listened to."

Excuse me, what the actual fuck? I don't know the specifics, but a white dude trying to do a Killmonger is going to have weird impacts on race relations.

It’s very much woven up in Knox’s family history; his father worked at a bank, and got fired for offering loans to black South Africans if I remember correctly. His big plan is to break a Zimbabwean opposition leader out of prison, overthrow Robert Mugabe, and then create a super state in Zimbabwe.

However, he didn’t actually bother to run the idea of “gee, let’s give Zimbabwe nukes” by the opposition leader first, and the man(I can’t quite remember how you spell his name— Walter Liltulu I think?) is horrified and angered when he finds out. After all, he wants to reintroduce democracy, not turn Zimbabwe into an ever worse pariah state by giving it nukes. The show makes it pretty clear that the scheme, for all Knox‘s high minded rhetoric, is much more based on personal vengeance than actually helping anyone.
 
The Johnny English's movies?
Cause, even if they are spy spoof movies, I'd think that especially the first, (even if its plot, it's a parodic one), with the Queen abdication and the appointing, as her legit/legal successor, of a foreign born king (and a French one, for the first time since William I) over the rest of the UK Royal succession line. Even, if it would be temporal, would have created an ahistorical scenario.

Teds 1 and 2

Not only can teddy bears be brought to life through the wishes of a child, but in Ted 2, the titular Ted is found to be a person under American law.

So, what does this mean for the future of this world? Is Ted the only living teddy bear in this world? What does the world look like now that there is at least one country where teddy bears can be considered as people under the law?
 
I mean Cairo is also leveled to build an enormous solar pyramid
Don't forget that we have giant Sentinel droids as a result of the X-Men in 1973, not to mention the San Francisco Golden Gate Bridge taking a role of the World Trade Center, as a result of the fighting with the X-Men,...

That's true, but with changes to the timeline the Sentinel program is mothballed and Trask denounced as a traitor and the Golden Gate Bridge thing never happens
 
Halloween (2018) and Halloween Kills.

Michael Myers, after escaping from a crashed prison bus on October 31st, 2018, commits the worst single-person spree stabbing that rivals even the worst mass shootings in the history of the United States. He's killed roughly 40-50 people over the course of 24 hours in Haddonfield, Illinois. Among the dead are 2 police officers, 3 corrections employees, and 11 firefighters. At the end of Halloween Kills, the sequel to Halloween (2018), also set on the same night, Michael is cornered by a large mob, who shoot him in the upper torso five times then proceed to bludgeon him with dozens of melee weapons. He proceeds to get up and kill several, making the mob flee. It is then implied that he vanishes or disappears at the end of the movie, or at least that's how I interpreted it.

In the movies, Haddonfield's sheriff mentions that the scale of death and destruction was so large that he had to request the state to help and that Haddonfield's morgue was overflowing with bodies. It is mentioned that several SWAT teams were deployed to look for him as well.

By November 1st, I would expect the Haddonfield murders to be national news, as over 50 people including half an entire town's fire department was slaughtered, and after word comes out that the killings were done solely by knife or melee weapons, everyone would be perplexed. How could one man do this? A massive manhunt would probably be ordered by the Governor, with National Guard troops and the FBI probably assisting to find Myers. Michael probably becomes the most wanted man in the United States, possibly even the world. Many would question how he survived so many injuries which should have killed him (including getting shot 10 times and being hit by a car). This will inevitably be turned into a political issue as well, but I will not delve into that.
 
I think that this movies would have 'interesting' (in the Chinese sense) Althistorical possible implications:

There's also Myers prior history making this even more sensational.

Slasher movies become even more scarce than in our timeline

because Michael Myers murders would make a movie like that into a landmine
 
The zombie army trilogy depicts a world war 2 that ends with a zombie apocalypse averted but with Europe in a far worse state than in our timeline

how would this effect the Cold War and politics up to our modern era?

I’d expect religious and conspiracy theories to be going crazy over Michael’s superhuman abilities. Even the rare cases where soldiers in combat endured traumatic injuries and kept fighting, they usually were using guns, couldn’t really move once the adrenaline started to wane, and required immediate hospitalization (even then, they didn’t take as much as Michael did). Folks would be shouting witchcraft, Satanism, or aliens.
