Despite the ups and downs her life’s had recently, things seem good for Jen Walters. She’s got powers, recognition, and a good job. The only problem is that she’s perpetually single. And that a shallow super/influencer hates her guts. And that some mysterious group tried to take her blood for themselves.
It seems like another day in the life of Jen Walters, Lawyer Superhero.
Jen Becomes a Bridesmaid
So, the plot of this episode kicks off with Jen going to the wedding of a friend from High School. And for once, she’s excited to go as She-Hulk and show off the dress she got. But, in a hilarious case of irony, the bride takes issue with this. She doesn’t want Jen to outshine her. Thus, Jen spends the reception as Jen in a dress that’s too big for her, being belittled by the bridesmaids.
Oh, and to top it off, Titania shows up to get revenge. So, yeah, not fun.
At this point, the show established its sense of humor fairly well. Jen’s well aware that some aspects of her life suck. However, rather than getting mad, she blows it off with passive-aggressive remarks to the fourth wall. It works, but you can tell the stress can get to her. Thankfully, her inevitable fight with Titania ends with the latter humiliating herself.
The Curious Case of Mr. Immortal
Meanwhile, Nikki and Mallory deal with an unusual divorce case with a man named “Mr. Immortal.” What’s unusual? The fact that Mr. Immortal cannot die.
No, seriously. There’s a Marvel character whose superpower is embodying the rule of Comic Book Death. He can jump out a window, eat cyanide, and pull a Kenny McCormick. He’ll just come back. And unlike his comic book counterpart, this one uses his powers to get out of conversations and relationships he doesn’t like.
I had to stop myself from laughing over this. The man cannot die no matter what, and he uses his power to bail on his ex-spouses. Maybe it’s Marvel commenting on how passive everyone would be if we could say no to death. Or maybe they thought it would be hilarious, which it is. Thankfully, Nikki’s so good with people that she talked Mr. Immortal’s ex’s into a settlement rather than a lawsuit. All eight of them.
I like how funny he is in the MCU, but in the comics, this man was the leader of a branch of the Avengers.
A New Threat Emerges
At the end of the episode, Nikki and Mallory find this website, Intelligencia, an Expy of Reddit, toxicity, and all. However, the most disturbing thing is that there is an entire section dedicated to hating on She-Hulk. To the point that there are death threats against her.
If it wasn’t clear before, there are people out there for Jen Walter’s blood. The people who hired the Wrecking Crew are going to try again. And if they get She-Hulk’s blood, there’s no stopping them from making an army of Hulks on the black market. So Jen should start worrying now! I know I am!
