The latest Marvel series has been taking fans on a journey just three episodes in. This series revolves around Jennifer Walters/ She-Hulk played by Tatiana Maslanny, who is a lawyer in Los Angeles. However, her life turns upside down after she gains Hulk’s power in an accident.
Bruce Banner/ Hulk is Jennifer’s cousin. The third episode of the live-action series has proved that the series is wholeheartedly a superhuman legal comedy. And we are not just talking about the very shocking cameo by Megan Thee Stallion which broke the Internet. The series also had a lot of Marvel references for fans to enjoy.
The latest episode saw Dennis Bukowski asking for help from the GLK&H after he has been fooled by Runa. Runa is a shapeshifting Light Elf from New Asgard. These elves were made by Bill Mantlo and June Brigman in Alpha Flight #50 as the Light Elves are considered one of the many residents of the Nine Realms of Asgard.
The group has its own set culture and life but this way of life becomes subject to getting targeted by Thor villains.
Asgard Is Not A Place
Runa had to appear in court because of Dennis and she argues how she should have diplomatic immunity across the world. She repeats the mantra that both Thor and Odin follow in Thor: Ragnarok as she says, “Asgard is not a place, it’s a people.”
For just a few seconds, She-Hulk introduces Mallory Book, another attorney at GLK&H. The character was created by Juan Bobillo and Dan Slott in She-Hulk #1. She is known as the “face that never lost a case” and was a former queen who turned into a lawyer.
In the comics, Mallory becomes Jen’s rival with time and she becomes the chairperson of Fourth Wall Enterprises as well. The company actually wants to ruin the life Jen has made but Mallory forgives Jen and they become friends.
Mirror & Shadow Dimension
When Wong played by Benedict Wong is confronted by Jen about Emil Blonsky’s case, he suggests that they send him to the Mirror or the Shadow Dimension. We have seen the mirror dimension in Spider-Man: No Way Home during the fight scene between Doctor Strange and Spider-Man.
However, the Shadow Dimension might be a nod to Thor: Love and Thunder as Gorr the God Butcher was said to be operating from the Shadow Realm.
Erase Everyone’s Memories
Wong then goes on to suggest that he will not be erasing people’s memories after Jen shoots down the realm idea. He says it is something he does not want to get into again. This is also a nod to No Way Home or it might be instances when Wong and Strange have erased people’s memories before.
She-Hulk asked her friend, Nikki Ramos to track down Wong and then she breaks the fourth wall. Jen says she knows the audience is excited to see Wong and confirms that the show will not have a cameo every week. However, she goes on to say that the previous two episodes had cameos though.
But as she was talking to the audience, her hands were off the wheel of her still-driving car. This could be a nod to the self-driving car she got from US Archer.
The Wrecking Crew
The latest episode ended with Jen fighting the Wrecking Crew just outside her apartment. They were trying to take her blood for a “boss” they were talking about. The crew was made by Len Wein and Sal Buscema in Defenders #17.
This crew is led by The Wrecker who is a construction worker turned criminal. His crowbar accidentally lights up when he is mistaken for Loki. He recruits three other people, Bulldozer, Piledriver, and Thunderball.
