Warning: The following post discusses damaged for the latest episode of “She-Hulk: Attorney At Law.”
Well, now you know the turn: Another day means a new round of speculation regarding the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Never mind that fans have been burned many times before when reaching conclusions that aren’t necessarily as dry as they might hope – remember the hype surrounding Evan Peters’ appearance in “WandaVision” “, just for all of that dreaming about the X-Men entering the MCU to transform into Ralph Bohner? Or does “Doctor Strange in Madness’s Multiverse” seem to have surrendered to all of those fans for John Krasinski to take on the role of Reed Richards, only for the alternate universe character to find himself, well, instead. slightly stretched?
Either way, all these examples of lessons learned from the past should probably run through every fan’s mind before anyone jumps the gun and starts setting their expectations too high again. with the latest episode of “She-Hulk: Attorney At Law”…but where’s the fun in that?
In a new pacing change from most other Marvel installments, “She-Hulk” remains largely uninterested in keeping the overall movie circuit moving. Sure, it’s self-aware of all its guests and references, expanding the universe even further by laying the groundwork for some exciting new additions. But in all likelihood, no one expected any major revelations or confirmations from the show teased at the outset as a half-hour legal comedy.
Of course, that doesn’t stop viewers from doing their best anyway. This time, the mouth-watering speech revolves around a certain Marvel character that fans have come to love time and time again. That’s right, guys. I’m afraid we’re talking about Mephisto again.
Mephisto and… Madisynn?
Once upon a time, MCU fans were convinced that the popular comic book villain Mephisto, essentially an extra-dimensional demon who presides over his unique version of “hell”, will appear in “WandaVision” – all of which is seriously lacking factual evidence in favor of it. But as proof that Powers That Be really works in mysterious ways, last night’s episode of “She-Hulk” may have provided us with the biggest tease yet of the character’s existence in the world. MCU. And that latent teasing comes about thanks to ‘s amusing antics party girl Madisynn (Patty Guggenheim). Who else!
This week’s story sees Jen Walters (Tatiana Maslany) wrapped up in a witch’s wits battle between Master of the Mystic Arts Wong (Benedict Wong) and cheap fake magician Donny Blaze (Rhys Coiro), who will not stop bringing volunteers to other spaces as part of his magic show. In one such excursion, however, Madisynn is forgotten in detail (swear, remember!) Her journey into a “land of fire” where she is forced to make a deal with a demon to escape – a demon she describes as “a talking goat” with a penchant for threatening to enslave human souls. As this is not completely admissible in court, but you must admit that the circumstantial evidence here is quite convincing!
Have your goat
Yes, yes, we’ve seen this song and dance before, so why are we now going full on conspiracy theories about Mephisto? Well, for one thing, we can (potentially) rest assured that “She-Hulk” won’t derail the whole story and its chilling tone, just to turn the part to the left by giving Mephisto into action – it’s just another little fun teased in a show bursting with such winks and nods. And, thanks to Madisynn, the writers may have found the funniest possible means of further hinting at Mephisto’s existence in the MCU, somewhere in some “other dimension.”
For those in need of a refresher on why this is such a big deal, Mephisto in the comics has had a pretty wild history with loads of heroes (and villains!) Marvel universe. An equally unlucky group of characters like Thor, Daredevil, Scarlet Witch, X-Men, Avengers, Fantastic Four, Silver Surfer, Spider-Man (although We try not to talk about it), and even Doctor Doom has been on the run from the demon of trouble for decades. Haunted by spirits enslaved for his nefarious purposes, the villain has always stood out in the imaginations of comic book readers and is sure to be a formidable threat should he appear. in live-action in the MCU.
True, Madisynn’s description of a youkai with the hilarious name “Jake”, doesn’t really fit any of the pseudonyms that Mephisto traditionally operates under. (Nearest, as indicated by Comicwould be “Jack Scratch,” but that sounds a bit tight, no?) It’s not an obvious case, as attorney Jen Walters herself would be the first to admit, but anything is possible. !
“She-Hulk” airs new episodes on Disney+ every Thursday.
