She-Hulk Just Name Dropped an Obscure '90s Marvel Villain

Marvel Studios has been doing some incredible things with their series on the Disney+ streaming service and that hasn't changed with the release of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law. She-Hulk has been upping the ante on what the Marvel Cinematic Universe could be week after week, and there haven't been any signs of slowing down. The series has been revealing a bunch of obscure characters from the comics week after week and will even bring Daredevil (Charlie Cox) back in an upcoming episode of the series. This week's episode was no different. She-Hulk introduced us to Mr. Immortal and even name-dropped an obscure villain from '90s comics. During the episode, Lily Cromwell, a.k.a. Baroness Blood, who was a member of the Legion of the Unliving, was brought up. In the comics, The Legion of the Unliving was a group of vampires who were brought together by Dracula. While it's highly unlikely that we'll see vampires this season, it's pretty cool to hear the name drop.

The series recently went through some controversy over how the titular character's visual effects looked. She-Hulk was still being worked on when the first teaser was released so the CGI was unfinished, and fans tore the look apart. With the series so close to premiering, the people behind-the-scenes are spoke on fan outrage. During the TCA's, Jessica Gao, Kat Coiro, and Tatiana Maslany revealed how they felt about the CGI fiasco.

"In terms of the CGI being critiqued, I think that has to do with our culture's belief in its ownership of women's bodies," Coiro said. "I think a lot of the critique comes from feeling like they're able to tear apart the CGI woman. There's a lot of talk about about her body type and we based it on Olympian athletes and not bodybuilders. But I think if we had gone the other way, we would be facing the same critique. I think it's very hard to win when you make women's bodies."

"This is a massive undertaking to have a show where the main character is CG," the head writer says. "It's terrible that a lot of artists feel rushed and and feel that the workload is too massive. I think everybody on this panel is stands in solidarity with all workers. We stand in solidarity with what they say the truth is," Coiro who directed episodes of the series continued. "We work with them, but we're not behind the scenes on these long nights and days. If they're feeling pressure we stand with them and we listen to them."

"I feel incredibly deferential to how talented these artists are and how quickly they have to work. Obviously, much quicker than probably should be given to them in terms of like churning these things out. We have to like be super conscious of the work conditions which aren't always optimal." Maslany added.
