The first trailer for She-Hulk: Attorney at Law was full of Easter eggs and goodies to keep fans busy. From a member of the Wrecking Crew to an unexpected appearance by Leap-Frog to the first quick look at Jameela Jamil’s Titania, there was plenty to pick through upon repeated viewings.
The trailer also spelled out one of the series’ important foundations: Jennifer Walters is being brought on to the law firm of Goodman, Lieber, Kurtzberg and Holliway to head up their Superhuman Law Division. And it looks like her first client is Emil Blonsky, who is being held in a VERY interesting looking prison.
Blonsky’s prison seems to be located smack dab in the middle of nowhere, surrounded by nothing but desert, and while Blonsky’s cell is the only one we see, it’d be an awfully big building to house just one prisoner. While we have no way of knowing what other potentially super-powered villains could or could not be among its population, we know that at least one of its residents is a gamma-fueled powerhouse, leaving open the possibility that the prison might have drawn at least some inspiration from the greatest of Marvel’s modern animated series.
For two years, Christopher Yost, Joshua Fine and Ciro Nielli treated adults and kids alike to the weekly goodness known as The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. Following a micro-series that introduced each of the Avengers, the series kicked off in earnest with a two-part event entitled “Breakout.” As you may have guessed, the plot saw a mass escape of supervillains from 4 super prisons: The Vault, The Big House, The Raft and The Cube. The Cube, located in the Nevada desert, housed gamma-irradiated villains (most of whom were enemies of the Hulk) including Bruce Banner and…The Abomination.
The case isn’t being made here that She-Hulk: Attorney at Law will adapt the Avengers: EMH Breakout storyline into its plot. The suggestion is simply being made that it’s possible the prison in She-Hulk, which houses Blonsky, could potentially hold other gamma-irradiated villains, even if we don’t see them in the series. In the animated series, The Leader and the Wrecking Crew (of whom we saw one member in the trailer) were counted among the inmates of the Cube, so it’s not too far a reach to think that maybe, those characters, who exist within the MCU, could be in the prison or find their way their, biding their time for the MCU’s big Breakout moment.
