She-Hulk Easter Egg Pays Tribute to Iconic Marvel Writers

The journey of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law has been a unique one, with Jennifer Walters / She-Hulk (Tatiana Maslany) having quite the Marvel Cinematic Universe introduction. The live-action Disney+ series has been mashing established MCU lore with Jen’s comic roots, and the results have been hilarious and unexpected. A blink-and-you’ll-miss-it moment from the show’s recently-released fourth episode paid tribute to those roots in a pretty great way, borrowing the names of some of the biggest She-Hulk comic creators. Spoilers for Episode 4 of She-Hulk below! Only look if you want to know!

Partway through the episode, Jen scrolls through a to-do list dotted with items. These include “File discovery request for Kraft v Soule” and “Compile depositions for Lee v Byrne.”

These names will be important to She-Mass comic perusers — Stan Lee co-made She-Mass and wrote her most memorable issue, Savage She-Mass #1. David Anthony Kraft composed each resulting issue of Savage She-Mass. John Byrne composed and drew most of the Hair-raising She-Mass run (and furthermore showed up in it as himself on numerous occasions). What’s more, Charles Soule wrote one of the latest She-Mass performance runs, which started in 2014.

This is perhaps of the most beguiling way that She-Mass has honored the comics — something a need for head essayist Jessica Gao.

“For me, it was John Byrne’s run that a) made me fall in love with the character in the first place,” Gao told ComicBook.com earlier this summer. “But b) I consider that — and most people do, this is nothing new — it’s the iconic She-Hulk run. He was the one who introduced the fourth-wall breaking and kind of the meta nature of this character, and how she was self-aware and knew she was in comics. So for me, that’s quintessential Jen. That’s quintessential She-Hulk, actually, I should say. There’s been so many iterations of Jen in the comics, and she really started out a little bit more timid, a little bit mousier, and as she kinda went along — more in the Dan Slott and Charles Soule runs, you started to really see this career-driven working woman, who had a very strong sense of right and wrong. We’ve really brought a lot of those traits into Jen.”

She-Hulk: Attorney at Law follows Jennifer Walters as she navigates the complicated life of a single, 30-something attorney who also happens to be a green 6-foot-7-inch superpowered hulk. The nine-episode series welcomes a host of MCU vets, including Mark Ruffalo as Hulk, Tim Roth as Abomination, Charlie Cox as Daredevil, and Benedict Wong as Wong. The cast also includes Josh Segarra as Augustus “Pug” Pugliese, Jon Bass as Todd, and Renée Elise Goldsberry as Mallory Book. Executive producers are Kevin Feige, Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Brad Winderbaum, Kat Coiro and Jessica Gao. Co-executive producers are Wendy Jacobson and Jennifer Booth.
