๐Ÿ“ธ: Marvel Studios

๐ŸŸข Plot ๐ŸŸข

She-Hulk discovers Titania owns the name “She-Hulk” and is suing her for trademark infringement.

๐ŸŸข Quick Thought Spew ๐ŸŸข

I enjoyed this episode. But not for the main plotline though. The side plot with Nikki and Pug. Nikki and Pug are easily becoming my favorite characters in this series. Their friendship is great and just their personalities in general is fun to see. They KIND OF remind me of Scott Lang’s/Ant-Man friends. I say KIND OF because those guys are ridiculously funny and no one can hold a candle to them. But like I said, their friendship is the best thing about this episode.

๐Ÿ”ด Summary Spoiler Spew ๐Ÿ”ด

Main Story

At the end of the last episode Jennifer Walters got served papers from Titania. Titania is suing Jennifer because she trademarked the term “She-hulk” and Jennifer is using it without permission. Since she trademarked the name she started a whole cosmetics line with shampoos, perfumes, etc. She even created ad campaigns featuring her new line.

Jennifer has a colleague represent her in the court hearings, Mallory Book. In court Titania’s lawyers show that Jennifer is in the wrong because there are many instances where Jennifer is caught saying she does not want to be associated with the name “She-Hulk”. The Judge sides with Titania until Jennifer and Mallory can prove that Jenifer does embrace the name before Titania trademarked it.

Mallory in court does prove that Jennifer embraced the name because she created a dating profile as “She-Hulk” and went on multiple dates as “She-Hulk”. The judge at the end of the day rules in favor of Jennifer and tells Titania to stop using the name “She-Hulk” and to stop selling her cosmetic line.

I was not too much of a fan of this storyline. I get that they were probably showing that Jennifer has come to terms and now likes the name She-Hulk, but the whole thing is just weird to me. Jennifer’s character this whole time just talks about how much she hates her Super name and just whines about it.ย 

Also, she does not even go out and save anyone. She just whines and hasn’t done any lawyering. I am hoping she starts to get in the groove of things these next few episodes. I have been waiting for that moment where the show catches me and just reels me in. I really do want to like this show!

Side Story

Pug comes up to Nikki in the office and asks her if she will go with him to pick up new Iron Man 3 shoes. Nikki agrees ONLY if Pug agrees to help her find a person who can make super hero clothes. Pug agrees and they head to a Boba shop that is a front for the clothing store. They see that this person sells bootleg Avengers clothes. The clothes say Avingers and Avongers. The guy who runs the Boba place tells them about a legit guy who does make Super Hero clothes.

I NEED an Avongers shirt like yesterday. I also like that they have their version of Jordan’s in the MCU. Would be cool if they made Iron Man 3’s a real thing. I am sure people would gobble those right up.ย 

They head over to a guy named Luke’s place. He agrees to see them because they say that She-Hulk is an Avenger. Luke agrees to make Jennifer new clothes that will fit her in regular form as well as Hulk form.

Jennifer goes back to Luke’s because he is done with her clothes, but we sadly have to wait for the next episode to see the clothes. This last scene was THE BEST! We see Luke grab a hat box that is for another client and we get a peek inside the box. It is Daredevil’s, Matt Murdock, helmet.

FINALLY! Finally we see Daredevil’s helmet. Since it was announced that he would be in this show I have been waiting for the episode to come. I really hope they give him a bigger role knowing how much people have been waiting for Charlie Cox to return as Daredevil after the Netflix show was cancelled. It was great seeing him in the newest Spidey movie, but I hope She-Hulk has him for a longer time than Spidey had him for.

Knowing Luke creates Super Hero clothes, I wonder who else is his client. He is making a whole business out of it, so I hope we get to see who he works for in other movies or other series.
