She-Hulk: Lawyer makes up for the legacy of She-Hulk comics by coming up with as many obscure superhero legal situations as possible.
And in this week’s episode, it created not one but two Marvel Cinematic Universe firsts, one that’s likely to become a big deal in the show’s rising stakes, and one that… probably certainly isn’t.
[Ed. note: This piece contains spoilers for She-Hulk episode 6.]
In episode 6, “Just Jen,” Jen attends an uneasy Thursday wedding while her paralegal Nikki and colleague Mallory Book are back in the office handling the episode’s subplot: a “divorce case” involving that famous founding Avenger, Mister Immortal.
Mister Immortal has the superpower to return from the dead almost instantly when killed. Unfortunately, he’s used that power to cheat seven marriages so far, faking his death and disappearing as soon as he gets tired of it. Through an online forum called Intelligencia, his seven former husbands discovered his cheating and are suing him for damages, and he needs GLK&H’s help. The character choice made comic readers perk up, such as She-Hulk‘s references tend to do.
Who is Mister Immortal?
Oh, have you never heard of Mister Immortal? Well, he founded the *cough cough* Avengers. Sorry, I’ll say it more clearly. He founded the *mumble mumble* Avengers.
Okay, he founded the Great Lakes Avengers. The Avengers of the Midwest.
Created by John “Put She-Hulk on the map” Byrne in the pages of West Coast AvengersMister Immortal’s powers in the comics are essentially as they are She-Hulk. It’s not that he can’t die, but rather that he dies all the time and always comes back in a minute or two, which is horrible. His real name is Craig Hollis, and he discovered his inability to die afterward – you know what? It’s a depressing story, let’s skip it. Along with a few other Midwestern superheroes, he created his own local superhero team, the Great Lakes Avengers.
Here’s a funnier fact about Mister Immortal: he’s on a short list of Marvel characters in the running to be the last one alive at the death of our universe, and one who might be the Galactus of the next. could become cosmos. Correctly!
But Mister Immortal’s case was an opportunity for… She-Hulk: Lawyer to hint at what could potentially become the series’ final climax: the Intelligencia.
In She-Hulk: LawyerIntelligencia appears to be a Reddit style forum, with both public and private subforums. In the subforums, Mallory and Nikki discover one devoted to She-Hulk hate, full of violent threats and other filth.
What is the Intelligence?
Hulk fans will instantly perk up when they mention the Intelligencia, an alliance of the greatest evil minds in Marvel Comics against the greatest strength?: the Hulk and all his gamma-irradiated counterparts. And it looks like She-Hulk is, if the people behind the website aren’t portrayed as the big bad guys, at least use that term “Intelligencia” to echo an existential threat to Jennifer Walters.
As seen in the final moments of She-HulkIn the sixth episode of the sixth episode, some technology equipped organization seems to be connected to Intelligencia, as well as the guys from the construction crew who tried to jump back Jen in episode 3. They are secretly observing Jen and they want her blood for supposedly nefarious purposes.
With only three episodes left – and a Daredevil appearance to weave in – we can expect the action in She-Hulk to start to ramp up, and it looks like Intelligencia will be a big part of that.
