she hulk or how to ruin the Abomination

In 2008, Louis Leterrier stage The Incredible Hulk. At the time it was Edward Norton who plays Doctor Banner. Second film of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), The Incredible Hulk almost done UFO office within the Marvel license. The work may be the darkest in the whole MCU, and the Hulk is presented as a violent and unstable Jade giant. A personality that will be transformed over time to lead to the insipid and awkward Smart Hulk presented to us in She-Hulk: Lawyer. In addition to a dark and violent Hulk, the feature film introduced the nemesis of the Hulk: the mighty Abomination. Embodied by Tim Roththis other giant, bloodthirsty and repulsive brute, was very faithful to the comics.

It took until 2021 to see the Abomination again in Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings for a brief appearance. Then, Tim Roth resumed his character on the occasion of the series she hulk. And like everything the show touches, the Abomination has become a terrible affront to comic book readers. Emil Blonsky has turned into a kind of Zen guru, who seeks redemption and avoids any deviation. The character is light years away from his expression in The Incredible Hulk and became a lazy self-parody unwelcome in the line of Smart Hulk. Or how to distort the very essence of a brainless psychopath passionate about ultra-violence.

The Abomination Therapy Group

In this seventh chapter of She-Hulk: Lawyer, Jennifer Walters goes to the domain of the Abomination because the latter’s electronic bracelet has broken down. Because of a car accident, the young lawyer is stuck for the day on Emil Blonsky’s ranch. There she discovers a Zen and hippie haven, in which the Hulk’s former nemesis leads therapy groups for emotionally unstable supers. Five characters then appear, all inspired by Marvel comics. Here are the members of the Abomination support group:


She-Hulk: Lawyer
Man Bull (Nathan Hurd) – She-Hulk: Lawyer ©Disney+

William Taurens made his very first appearance in 1971 in Daredevil #78. Created by Gerry Conway and Gary Friedrich, William Taurens participates in an experiment. He is administered an experimental serum taken from the bulls, and made from mutated enzymes. This serum turns it into bull-man. He then decides to call Man-Bull to become a supervillain recurring from Daredevil. A minor character in the Marvel stable, Man-Bull possesses the strength and stamina of a bull, as well as increased resistance to physical injury. It possesses two enormous horns useful in close combat, and has the ability, however unstable, to mind control cattle. His presence in She-Hulk: Lawyer is a additional reference to Daredevil’s upcoming arrival in the series.

El Aguila

Created by Mary Jo Duffy and Dave Cockrum, El Aguila first appeared in 1980 in Power Man and Iron Fist #58. Originally from Madrid, El Aguila is a mutant who decided to fight crime. El Aguila has the power to release, by means of a conductor like a sword, powerful electrostatic charges produced by his body. Its discharges can reach up to 100,000 volts. Its presence is not insignificant since Marvel Studios continues, little by little, to introduce mutants into the MCU. After the fake Quicksilver in Wanda Vision ; Professor X in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness ; Miss Marvel who is of mutant descent ; and while waiting for Namor in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever who will also be a mutant; El Aguila is further proof of the presence of mutants in the MCU.

Porcupine (Jordan Aaron Ford) – She-Hulk: Lawyer ©Disney+

Created by Stan Lee and Don Heck, Porcupine made its first appearance in 1963 in Tales of Astonish #48. Initially, Alexander Gentry is a scientist who worked for the US military. His mission was to create armor to protect American soldiers. As he invents porcupine armor, the US government wants to steal his creation. He then decides to keep his armor for himself and embarks on a criminal career. He is moreover one of the very first armored supervillains in Marvel Comics history. A second-rate villain, Porcupine is systematically defeated by heroes like Ant-Man, Captain America and Iron Man. He works for a time with Justin Hammer to bring down Tony Stark. After many defeats, Porcupine tries to sell his armor to the highest bidder, without success, before dying in a clash against Diamondback. Since then, another individual has taken over the Porcupine armor during the Civil Warbut no one knows his identity.

Saracen (Terrence Clowe) – She-Hulk: Lawyer ©Disney+

Played by Terrence Clowe in She-Hulk: Lawyer, Saracen is an alleged vampire in the series, although he is never seen in action. In the comics, Saracen is indeed a bloodsucker. He is even one of the oldest vampires on earth with Nosferatu, Verdelet, Boy, Maracen and Lamia. This recurring supervillain of the license Blade do it all first appearance in 1999 in Blade: Vampire Hunter #1. Its presence is not insignificant since it is used to introduce vampires gently but surely into the MCU, story to prepare the spectators for the film Blade.

The Demolisher (Wrecker in VO)

It’s clearly the most famous character on this list (even if it is totally ruined in She-Hulk: Lawyer like all the characters presented). Dirk Garthwaite, aka The Demolisher, is a fairly recurring supervillain in Marvel comics. Created in 1968 by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby (still), he makes his first appearance in Thor #148 as an enemy of the Asgardian god. Initially, Dirk Garthwaite is a former construction worker who gets fired for violent and anti-social behavior. He then decides to create a costume with his tools and becomes a second-rate super-villain who does small misdeeds here and there. As he crosses paths with Loki, The Demolisher receives an enchantment from Karnilla, Queen Norn. Thanks to this spell, Dirk Garthwaite obtains an excessive physical power which allows you to stand up to Thor in single combat.

He also owns a magic crowbar which gives it more power like Thor’s Mjolnir. An artifact that allows the Demolisher to absorb and project energy, create illusions, generate a force field, create small earthquakes, or even teleport. Like Mjolnir for the God of Thunder, the crowbar returns like a boomerang to its owner. Finally, The Demolisher can also mentally control weaker spirits. Later, Dirk Garthwaite creates a whole new team of villains: the Demolishers, consisting of Bulldozer, Compressor and Thunderball. In short, The Demolisher is clearly not a small strike. He’s a very famous character with comic book readers, who has been adapted haphazardly in She-Hulk: Lawyer. We really hope that Marvel Studios is going to rectify the situation and offer its fans a Demolisher worthy of the name…
