“She-Hulk” is the lady of Marvel Deep Cuts

After teasing Daredevil’s long-awaited arrival in the MCU to close Episode 5, She-Hulk: Attorney at Law Her inclusion of another major crossover character in this week’s batch was delayed and focused on a wedding instead. On the heels of another tragic wedding in Westeros during the latter part of Dragon HouseAnd the Strong woman He offers a lighter marriage in the movie Just Jen. Episode six contains some social commentary about the awkwardness and quirks of modern-day weddings and a gorgeous guest appearance from comedian Patty Harrison as the future bride, while providing plenty of drama: There’s a brawl on the dance floor between Titania and She-Hulk, a promising new love interest for Jen, and a precursor to this season’s obvious true villain, Intelligencia.

Two-thirds of the way through a nine-episode season, sitcom-style structure Strong woman settled into a rhythm. Each week, we can count on the 30-minute legal comedy to focus on two lines, one that—if not both—involves the GLK&H case and another that somehow relates to Jane’s life outside of the courtroom. (Along with Jane’s maid of honor duties, this week’s episode featured an amusing B-plot plot centered on a divorce case involving a man who abuses his gift of immortality.) The cameos and cross characters are from other MCU franchises, as they were teased in the trailers that preceded the series’ release. What was more unexpected is Strong womanA tendency to incorporate deep characters from the comics into their world.

From the forgotten brother of Sam Wilson and a superhero named Leap-Frog For a fashion designer presented in a short period North Dakota series, Strong woman He continues to weave in obscure or lesser known characters from the comics like Easter eggs or even in larger roles. These types of references have always been a staple of MCU projects, providing hidden gems for Marvel Comics fans to constantly appreciate and search for, but the creative team behind them Strong woman He seems especially happy to bring up characters that even avid readers might not realize. (I, for example, had to look up Luke Jacobson after Griffin Matthews debuted in the MCU in the role in last week’s episode. Never heard of him before North Dakotawhich ran for only five issues in the late 1980s, although it appears to have been far ahead of its time).

as such Strong woman Writer Cody Ziglar explained in a recent episode of Crooked Media’s X-ray vision Podcasts, it all comes from a book room filled with a host of longtime comic book fans, starting with lead writer Jessica Gau, whose first job was in high school at her local comic book store. With a pair of Marvel executives in the room to help decide which characters were taboo and which were fair game, the writing team explored a plethora of options.

“At one point, we had two different boards, one like the big board with story elements and one that just had the characters or parts we pitched,” Zieglar said. “I felt like I was doing a comic book crap nerd, like, ‘What mysterious character can I find that someone else hasn’t picked up?’ “

The sixth episode of the program Strong woman He may have taken the hero out of Hell’s Kitchen, but he has already appeared with one of the founding members of the Avengers. And when I say “Avengers” I mean Great Lakes Avengersa team so ridiculous that – during its inception in 1989 West Coast Avengers comic written by Sexy She-Hulk Creator John Byrne Hawkeye and Mockingbird hopped on a commercial plane to Wisconsin just to see if the team was real. Led by the so-called Immortal Master, a death-defying man named Craig Hollis, the Great Lakes Avengers are eventually recognized by Captain America and the Avengers in an official capacity and will even come to their aid in battle from time to time.

However, Hollis’ debut in “Just Jen” does not come in the form of an audience-facing superhero attempting to establish an offshoot of the Avengers in the Midwest but in the form of a (kind of) immortal con man who finds himself in the middle of a divorce case Seven ex-husbands. It’s a playful premise and use of the comics character, with the TV version bearing little resemblance to its comic counterpart. Except, that’s his habit kinda deathas he did within minutes of meeting Hawkeye and Mockingbird at West Coast Avengers:

Together with Mister Immortal, this week Strong woman The chapter features the first mention of a group known as Intelligencia, a super-villain team of comics bringing together some of the greatest evil minds in the Marvel Universe, including a number of big hitters like Doctor Doom. Despite having a roster consisting mostly of well-known characters, Intelligencia is among the more enigmatic teams of super-villains in a long line of them, with their most notable appearances in 2009-2010. falling structures The intersection at which they formed occurred. But leave it to Strong woman A creative team not only to incorporate a lesser known superstar into a development that suggests they will be the Big Bad for the season but also to remake the group as an online forum for “hate babies” that seems certain. Much Like incel pockets from Reddit and 4chan.

No matter how hard Titania tries to get in Jen’s way, it’s becoming clear that she won’t be the villain who will invite She-Hulk into action as her superhero as the show raises its stakes in the final third of the season. With the episode’s closing scene sparkling, Intelligence is preparing to enter the next phase of their plan to eliminate the She-Hulk, after their unsuccessful attempts to collect some of her gamma-rayed blood by the unlucky Wrecking Crew in Episode III. Outside Can Awesome Andy (the robot that appears frequently in Dan Slott’s Strong woman Comics) and MODOK (the villain that is set to appear in it Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania next year), it seems unlikely that any of the actual Intelligencia members from the comics will appear in the main part of Strong womanThe first season. However, MCU Intelligencia’s similarity to the comedy crew is worth watching.

With only three episodes left in the season, Strong woman It continues to be an entertaining weekly affair, even if it remains something of a mixed bag. A lot of the wedding plot line falls for Episode VI, especially the climax fight between Titania and She-Hulk that ends with Titania slipping on some ice. But her saving grace is the birth of an incredible legal team in Nikki and the Mallory Book, as well as a superhero divorce case that further demonstrates why a series manipulates the absurd events of the superhero world from a more coherent but absolutely absurd point of view. The view can – and should – continue to occupy a place in a cinematic world that often takes itself seriously. Since I’m all set to see Daredevil Charlie Cox return to action in the coming weeks, I’m very interested to see any mystery character from the comics Strong woman It may turn into the next.
