She-Hulk Spoilers for Episode 2 follow.
She-HulkX the second episode brings some pretty big changes to the character of Jennifer Walters. After losing her job, a cheerful green giantess finds work at a law firm that specializes in litigation involving non-human beings. The public also gives her a superhero codename, for better or worse.
And then there are ramifications what Wolverine’s Easter egg is also worth considering.
But unlike the first episode, Jen won’t have her cousin He-Hulk to help sort it all out. Near the end of this week’s story, Bruce accidentally cuts off She-Hulk in the middle of a conversation when the Sakaaran spaceship he’s commanding suddenly blows away from Earth.
It may not be the best time for the Hulk to leave once Jen begins to sort through the Hulk’s life, but it’s obvious that there is a pressing issue here that needs to be addressed. Bruce Banner wouldn’t just run away from the galaxy for no reason. But what is this problem? And why should he go right now?
Back in the beginning of the first episode, Jen and Bruce were busy investigating the case of Captain America’s cute, innocent flower when a spaceship crashed into them, setting off the events that led to She-Hulk’s gamma transformation.
Back at the Hulk’s secret base in Mexico, he mentioned that the ship was actually Sakaaran in nature. In fact, “class A courier ship”. The pair are quick to skip this in favor of more pressing concerns, but as Bruce points out, it’s clear that someone from this planet was “trying to get a message across”.
The nature of this message was not entirely clear, although given the nature of this attack, it’s safe to say that Sakaar had the Hulk crossed off his collective Christmas card list.
Remember when we first visited MCU’s Sakaar in Thor: Ragnarok? In this movie, we learned that Bruce was trapped in his Hulk form for two years fighting as the Grandmaster’s greatest champion. Nice job if it works. Except for all the deaths and a critical lack of consent.
Around the same time, the Sakaarans revered the power of the Hulk to the point of worship, but when Thor appeared, everything changed. After one rebellious escape, “friends from work” left Sakaar in disarray.
While we don’t know exactly which Sakaarans chose to play their grudge after all this chaos, we do have a few guesses. Grandmaster Jeff Goldblum could have sent someone to try to kill the Hulk, or maybe someone else decided to get revenge on Bruce for all the civil unrest that his escape provoked.
In any case, it’s clear that the Hulk is now in someone’s crosshairs, so he does what any Avenger would do and flies his spaceship right into the firing range of said crosshair.
Given the Hulk’s history with Sakaar, Grandmaster Goldblum’s return seems likely, but fans are also wondering if this arc could introduce another, even more important character to move the Hulk forward.
Now we’re going to ask you to give up faith for a moment and imagine the possibility that Bruce had sex during his time on Sakaar. In the form of the Hulk. Yes, we know that some of you have already considered this possibility just for fun, and yes, the physical logistics of this really
hot? scary to watch. However, there is actually a very good reason why this might be true.
In the Marvel comics, Hulk fathered a child named Skaar during his time on Sakaar. Not the most inventive name, let’s agree, but at least the lucky young Skaar inherited gifts from both his father and his mother, Cayera, who was a local Sakaar.
I know it RagnarokThe Hulk had some sort of personality during his time on the planet, although she was pissed off in every way, there’s a small chance that he could fall in love and impregnate someone like Cayera in the MCU. Fu, we know.
She-Hulk It takes place a few years after this movie, plus the Skaar comic is aging faster than the average human, so it’s entirely possible that the Hulk’s gamma-ray-infused sperm product will soon explode on our screens as adults in the MCU. And if he is anything like his father, baby Hulk will probably be furious.
Does this mean that Skaar could be the one who piloted the Sakaar spaceship? Probably not, as the Hulk is now inside of him and doesn’t mention Jen’s random new son during their call. However, the vengeful, abandoned Skaar may have sent a ship to get the attention of the pope…
Or maybe, just maybe, the MCU version of Cayera sent him in because she’s mad at all the years the Hulk didn’t pay child support. She-Hulk this is a legal comedy after all, and this Sakaaran arc is clearly going to bite our Hulks in the ass by the end of the first season.
What could be more suitable for She-Hulk final than a fun green custody battle among the family? Because of this, everything else that happened to Jen now seems small compared to her.
It’s probably not a coincidence that Marvel just announced a new Sakaar series called “Planet Hulk: Destroyer of Worlds“which will be released in November, as soon as She-Hulk ends with Disney+…
Whatever happens, let’s just hope the show doesn’t forget that Jen still has to stand front and center as the most important character in her own show. The Hulk’s sudden departure here seems to confirm that, but we don’t trust him or the frail Banner to keep their smutty drama at bay for long.
She-Hulk Attorney at Law airs weekly every Thursday on Disney+.
