Review | She-Hulk: Attorney At Law (1×03 The People vs. Emil Blonsky)
“She-Hulk continues to be a fun and entertaining series while also addressing sexism and misogyny in a meaningful way. This is another great episode.”
Today is Thursday so it is once again time for our weekly dose of Marvel with the latest episode of She-Hulk: Attorney At Law.
Last week’s episode ended with the revelation on TV that Emil Blonsky left his cell to fight in Macau. That is what we saw in Shang-Chi. And this episode is about the consequences of what happened. Leaving his cell to then return to it, is a problem for his parole. So Jennifer Walters has to deal with that. Obviously, as you might expect that is when we see Wong’s return. He has a costume similar to the one he wears in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. He has always been a slightly comedic character. Thus, it is a great fit to have him in this series. Plus, his interactions with Jen are really good.
The Emil we see is a different version from The Incredible Hulk. It is the same character but he has changed. This allows Tim Roth to explore another side of the character. What the writers have done perfectly works for a sitcom.
Right from the premiere, this series has dealt with sexism and misogyny, acknowledging women’s problem at work. We see it through dialog and different situations. Marvel reflects our society. As such, it is so important to address these issues. And the series is doing it in a meaningful way. This episode also deals with the misogyny within fandom. We see tweets from men complaining that there is a “female version of Hulk.” That is exactly the reaction we saw from some men in the Marvel fandom. I love how this series is aware of the fandom discussions and actually makes use of it.
THE INFAMOUS FORMER CO-WORKER
This episode also deals with an extremely funny situation concerning Dennis Bukowski, Jennifer’s former co-worker. And that involves Megan Thee Stallion. We spend more time with Pug, one of Jennifer’s new colleague. And this character is actually likeable. He is the contrary of Dennis. Just like the first two episodes, stay during the credits as there is a mid-credits scene. It is another fun one.
She-Hulk continues to be a fun and entertaining series while also addressing sexism and misogyny in a meaningful way. This is another great episode.
