After three months of promotion material, SheHulk: Attorney At Law began its run on Disney+ today with its first episode. This episode featured She-Hulk as the main character and also opened up plot points about other Avengers such as Steve Rogers or Tony Stark.
Warning – The rest of this article contains spoilers for Episode 1 of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law.
Episode 1’s early portions answered some long-standing questions, including the question about Steve Rogers being a virgin during his time in MCU. Fans even got another near-F-bomb from the Marvel Studios Disney+ show, as Episode 1’s post-credits scene featured Jen and Bruce discussing Steve’s escapades during the USO tour in the 1940s.
There’s also the Tony Stark question, as Iron Man and the Hulk formed the formidable Science Bros throughout their last few appearances in the MCU together before Tony died heroically in 2019’s Avengers: Endgame. Episode 1 provided some insight into Tony’s final years, and gave fans an opportunity to see some of his activities with Bruce Banner in The Blip.
She Hulk Refers to Tony Stark, The Blip
Episode 1. Marvel Studios’ Shehulk: An Attorney at Law provided viewers with an update about what Tony Stark had been doing in Marvel Studios’ MCU over the five-year-long Blip in Avengers Endgame ..
When Bruce brings Jennifer Walters to Mexico, he uncovers a secret lab beneath his cabanna that is filled with Stark-level technology. This lab was filled with testing and monitors, which Bruce used to perfect his skills as The Incredible Hulk following Thanos’ Snap.
Banner confirmed Tony’s lab ” a few years back” during The Blip as Bruce used the lab to blend his Hulk personality and his human one:
Bruce : “This was where I spent The Blip fixing me and integrating Hulk Banner identities .”
Jen : “In this small beach house laboratory .”
Bruce: “Yeah. Tony made it for me several years back. Tony Stark. Tony Stark used to joke about it being a loaner and that he would just come by one day and get it back .”
Later: Bruce shows Jennifer the tiki bar he built with Tony, though he admits that Tony did the majority of the work and Bruce sat and drank all the time.
The bar also includes their initials B.B. Bruce and T.S. reminisced about their Blip time. Bruce called it “a great time in a difficult time ,”, leading Jennifer and him to have a toast as they continued drinking all night:
Jen : You built this bar hand ?”
Bruce: “Oh yeah.”
Jen: “That’s impresssive.”
Bruce : “Yeah Tony and me. Tony mostly drunk, but he just sat there complaining about Steve .”
Jen: “Oh, Steve.”
Bruce – “It was good fun during a difficult time .”
How Marvel Revisits The Blip in She-Hulk
The moment when half of the universe disappeared after Thanos gained the Infinity Gauntlet has been unsurprisingly one of the most important moments in MCU History. It has been mentioned in almost every MCU project released in Phase 4. Given Tony’s and Bruce’s relationships in MCU it makes perfect sense for it to be back in play for SheHulk
After his fallout with Captain America Tony appeared to be more out of the norm with Pepper Potts, his daughter Morgan and also helped Bruce with his personality disorder. Their relationship was growing since The Avengers Tony made every effort to ensure that Bruce could manage his dual personality with all of the technology and resources available.
Whether Tony will return in future episodes remains a mystery. However, Marvel ensured that Tony’s impact was as strong as ever as Phase 4 is quickly coming to an end.
