‘She-Hulk: Attorney At Law’ Does What It Is Supposed To

by Frank Martin

After this week’s episode of She-Hulk: Attorney At Law went live there was immediate disappointment online about Daredevil (Charlie Cox) failing to appear. This most likely stems from the fact that last week’s episode had a bit of a Daredevil teaser. But those that are complaining about the lack of the character are missing a pretty decent episode. After all, the show is titled She-Hulk: Attorney At Law, Not “can’t wait to see Daredevil.” There were two separate storylines in this episode, as has become the custom, and both were fairly interesting. One even had the introduction of a comics character that is actually pretty awesome.

She-Hulk’s primary storyline dealt with Jennifer Walters (Tatiana Maslany) coming to terms with just being herself. She was hoping to go to a wedding and finally show off her Hulk self and be proud of it, but things weren’t exactly going to plan when Titania (Jameela Jamil) decided to scheme herself into the wedding. Of course, a superhero brawl between the two was inevitable. This one more than made up for the awkward fight scene in the show’s first episode and the intellectual battle the two fought in the courtroom last week.

But this episode’s best storyline focused on Mr. Immortal (David Pasquesi). The story by itself wasn’t at all important for She-Hulk’s character or the Marvel Cinematic Universe at large. At least, not yet. But Mr. Immortal is a very interesting character, and the MCU version of him was equally compelling — a rather sleazy guy who used his immortality to try and escape broken marriages. It’s unclear if he will have a future in the MCU or if the Great Lakes Avengers that he’s typically a part of is on the horizon. But either way, She-Hulk is presenting itself as a great series that doesn’t just move Jen Walters forward, but also has great supporting roles that expand the universe.

She-Hulk streams Wednesdays on Disney+.
