After the long sketch that was the first episode of ‘She-Hulk: Abogada Hulka’ (She Hulk: Attorney at Law), I had quite curious to know what Jen’s life would be like once he jumped the cake of his public conversion into the emerald colossus of Disney +.
By the way, from here spoilers for “Superhuman Law”, episode 1×02 of ‘She-Hulk: Lawyer Hulka’.
Thus the episode begins by describing, via the news, the battle between She-Hulk and the Titania by Jameela Jamil to later have her moment of glory at the bar, being chanted by her peers. However, her performance in her trial has led to it being declared null and void, as a result of which she has not liked anything in the firm and she ends up being fired from her.
After an unsuccessful search for a new job, Jen goes to her parents’ house, where they try not to touch certain topics. Obviously it arises. There we have a father and daughter moment, in which Jen is reminded that she is not the only Hulk in the family and that, so far, she has not destroyed a city.
We jump to the bar where (nice detail) they’re playing ‘Ally McBeal’ on the TV. Mr. Holloway will appear there to offer him a job at his firm. The trap: They don’t want Jen, they want She-Hulk, for its new division specializing in superhuman cases. The trap (2): the first case involves the reintegration into society of Emil Blonsky (Tim Roth), aka Abomination.
In this way, Jen is faced with two dilemmas: seeing that no matter how talented she is as a lawyer, what sells is to be a green mass and, incidentally, having to defend one of his cousin’s nemesis. Of course, just when she decides to accept the case, the hare jumps: images of Abomination have been leaked fighting in a “sort of clandestine fight club” that would indicate his escape from prison.
The fan’s eye will have caught that the images correspond to the fight with Wong that we saw in ‘Shang-Chi and the legend of the Ten Rings’. Taking into account that in the post-credits scene of said tape we see Bruce with his arm in a sling, we can guess that the footage is relatively old. But we will check it out in the next episode.
Expanded trailer syndrome
Continuity details aside, marvel, we need to talk. It is not that I am not enjoying the series (and in fact I am), the problem is that, at the moment, I am not watching anything that is not a slight expansion of trailers. At least these two episodes are following to the letter what is sensed in the advances.
While I want to love Marvel fiction, I’m still somewhat halfway with ‘She-Hulk’, maybe also because the structure of the episodes of the series and the half-hour format are not entirely well matched. Fortunately, in this episode there begins to be more chicha.
