All The Comic Book Easter Eggs In She-Hulk Part One

SPOILER WARNING – THIS POST CONTAINS SPOILERS FOR THE FIRST THREE EPISODES OF SHE-HULK, IF YOU HAVE NOT SEEN THE SHOW, SAVE THIS POST AND READ IT AFTER WATCHING!

We’re officially a third of the way through She-Hulk, so it’s time to do my first Easter Egg run down!

Episode 1

QR code from She-Hulk

The QR Code

Marvel is at it again by adding QR codes into their episodes! This one is in the restaurant toilets, and if you scan it, it takes you to Jennifer’s origin issue on Marvel Unlimited, which you can read for free!

Sakaarian ship in front of Jennifer’s car

The Sakaarian Ship

Bruce and Jennifer crash the car after being shocked by the appearance of a Sakaarian ship in front of them – could this be leading to a Planet Hulk situation, where Bruce becomes the leader of Sakaar?

Titania played by Jameela Jamil

Titania

Titania is one of She-Hulk’s villains – I’ll be going into more detail about her when she becomes a villain in the show!

Episode 2

Jennifer being asked to work for GLK/H in the first volume of Dan Slott’s She-Hulk run

GLK/H Hiring Jennifer

Just as it happens in the She-Hulk Dan Slott run, Jennifer is hired for the superhuman law division of GLK/H! It even happens in the show in the same bar as the comics!

Blonsky in his cell played by Tim Roth

Abomination

Less of an Easter Egg, and more the appearance of a classic Hulk villain. Though usually, Blonsky is a villain for Bruce, not Jen – the two have fought in the past though!

News site shot, which says ‘related articles. Man fights with metal claws in bar brawl’

The Clawed Man

Possibly my favourite Easter Egg of the bunch, but we have our first reference to Wolverine in the MCU! This news headline states that a clawed man has been fighting in a bar – who do we know has claws, and was first seen in the very first X-Men movie fighting in a bar, and who’s favourite bar, ‘The Princess Bar’ has already been seen in Madripoor? That’s right, Wolverine! After Charles’ appearance in Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness and the mention of ‘mutation’ in Ms Marvel, I think it’s safe to say that mutants will be coming to the MCU sooner than we think!

Bruce Is On His Way To Sakaar

Another clue towards the Planet Hulk theory – Bruce is now on his way to Sakaar, on the Sakaarian ship that originally flagged him down in episode 1. He could be going to maybe try and save the Grandmaster from Gorr The God Butcher (there were scenes filmed where Gorr killed him in Thor: Love And Thunder, but they were cut), but it’s looking more likely that we may be getting a Planet Hulk adaption instead. The groundwork was set in Thor: Ragnarok with the gladiator Hulk storyline, so Marvel could definitely be heading towards it!

Pug played by Josh Segarra

Pug

One of Jennifer’s friends in the Dan Slott run – he’s also a lawyer who works for GLK/H, and they actually live in the same building. The only problem is, Pug is in love with Jennifer, and she has no idea!

Comic books on the shelves in the GLK/H offices

The Comic Book Shelves

These are actual Marvel Comics on the shelves on GLK/H, and there’s a reason why they’re there – in the Dan Slott She-Hulk run, Jennifer, Pug and the rest of the lawyers use Marvel Comics to fight their cases! Yes, that’s right, Marvel Comics exist inside of the world of Marvel Comics, and because they’re issued by the Comics Authority, they count as legal documents, and so can be used when setting superhero law! It may not be mentioned in the show, but it looks like the MCU works out its laws in similar ways…

Episode 3

Mallory Book played by Renée Elise Goldsberry

Mallory Book

A lawyer also at GLK/H, and until Jennifer caused a bit of trouble, she had a perfect record for winning every case she took on. It’s safe to say, Mallory and Jennifer don’t get along all that well…

Reporter asking if Jennifer got her powers from a mafia hit gone wrong

The Mafia Hit Gone Wrong

This line is a direct reference to Jennifer’s origin story, where she was shot in a mafia hit gone wrong!

Another QR code

Another QR code appears underneath a youtube video, this code leads you to issue two of Savage She-Hulk on Marvel Unlimited.

The Wrecking Crew

The Wrecking Crew

Usually a Thor villain team, this crew have also faced off against The Defenders, Iron Fist, and She-Hulk herself. They’re a little small time, and actually appear in Dan Slott’s She-Hulk run in Hank Pym’s ‘Big House,’ which is a prison where inmates are shrunk down to ant size and kept in tiny cells!

The Leader played by Tim Blake Nelson in The Incredible Hulk (2008)

The Boss

Less of an easter egg, more of a theory. One of the members of the Wrecking Crew says that The Boss won’t be happy that they didn’t get what he wanted from Jennifer. My guess is that this person is The Leader – a Hulk villain, also affected by Gamma Radiation. The reason why I am suggesting it’s him is because the character has already appeared in the MCU, specifically in the 2008 Incredible Hulk movie, played by Tim Blake Nelson! I could be wrong, but with Tim Roth as Emil Blonsky turning up, it is possible that Marvel is bringing back another previous villain!

And that’s all the easter eggs I’ve seen so far in She-Hulk! What was your favourite? Did you spot anything else? Let me know in the comments below!
