KEVIN is a clone of GLaDoS, the villain in Valve’s “Portal” series of games. Both are similar in design and properties and act as the final boss of the main characters (even their lairs look similar). Like its MCU rival, GLaDoS is a super-intelligent machine that hangs from above and dictates the course of the story. In “Portal”, the computer torments the human protagonist, Chell, with convoluted puzzles that slowly lead her to her death. “She-Hulk” is a lot less sick, but it’s arguably just as terrifying knowing the show’s seemingly formulaic nature of the MCU.
Seriously, it’s great to see a clear nod to the villain of one of the best video games of all time. “She-Hulk” is also just the latest project to borrow GLaDoS. Guillermo del Toro famous used the same voice behind GLaDoS (Ellen Mclain) for “Pacific Rim.” More recently, a similar voice can be heard in the “M3GAN” movie trailer, which features a sentient robotic doll. Looks like GLaDoS is everywhere if you work hard enough. While it’s unclear if we’ll ever see KEVIN again in the MCU, at least GLaDoS has reached another level of cultural relevance. Maybe this was her plan all along.
All episodes of “She-Hulk: Attorney at Law” are available on Disney+.
