Whereas this final episode’s A-story offers with Jen trying to venture a picture of self-confidence at her cousin’s marriage ceremony, her lawyer coworkers Nikki (Ginger Gonzaga) and Mallory (Renée Elise Goldsberry) take care of an particularly troublesome consumer that places a creepy web site (“for hateful man-babies,” in Mallory’s disdainful phrases) named Intelligencia on their radar. Although largely a swipe at 4chan or Reddit, the identify of that web site serves a good higher objective as a reference to a supervillain group within the pages of Marvel Comics.
Historically led by M.O.D.O.Okay. and the Chief, Intelligencia was shaped as a form of suppervillain assist group between good felony minds to pool their sources and rise up to every kind of mischief. Naturally, they set their sights on Bruce Banner’s Hulk throughout their first main look in a crossover occasion titled “Fall of the Hulks.” Right here, they established ties with Normal Thaddeus Ross (performed by the late, nice William Damage within the MCU) and in the end grew to become the group chargeable for creating Pink Hulk … a villain that might very effectively flip up within the MCU itself down the road.
The “HulkKing” actually factors to somebody with connections to the gamma-irradiated large man, which may point out doable suspects like a recast Normal Ross/Pink Hulk, Emil Blonsky/Abomination (though he appears to have reformed himself solely and left his felony methods behind him), or maybe Tim Blake Nelson’s Chief. In any case, it might be pure to reintroduce him earlier than in “She-Hulk” earlier than his large reappearance within the subsequent “Captain America” movie.
Is that this what “She-Hulk” is resulting in (pun most undoubtedly supposed) in its closing episodes? Tune in to new episodes on Disney+ each Thursday to seek out out.
