10 Suspects Who Could Be She-Hulk's Big Bad

Spoilers for She-Hulk: Attorney At Law!

She-Hulk: Attorney At Law gets closer and closer to revealing its big bad. The sixth episode returns to the plot thread involving The Wrecking Crew, who attempted to get a blood sample from Jennifer Walters. Interest in a Hulk's blood implicates a few specific individuals in the MCU, including characters slated to return in upcoming movies and TV shows.

Other suspects remain possible, including ones less obvious. The effort to obtain She-Hulk's blood could connect to the schemes of highly anticipated characters like Doctor Doom, for instance. But equally likely and probable is that this effort links to the ongoing plots involving characters with an interest in subverting what the Avengers established in the MCU.

The Intelligencia

Episode six tipped its hand on the big bad for She-Hulk: Attorney At Law with a reference to Intelligencia. While the episode presents it as a shady website, comic book fans know this is also the name of a key supervillain group. The Leader, among the Hulk's best comic book villains, formed this group in early in his career.

Several iterations exist, but the first included M.O.D.O.K., Mad Thinker, Egg Head, and others. While the group itself may not be the big bad, this comic book Easter egg likely points to who is.

The Leader

Samuel Sterns' exposure to Bruce Banner's gamma-irradiated blood in The Incredible Hulk (2008) hinted at a sinister future for the character. The Leader never manifested in the MCU after but he will in Captain America: New World Order, hinting at the possibility this iconic Hulk villain is the big bad.

The Leader may require She-Hulk's blood for himself or he may seek to experiment on others with it as he did in the comics. The New World Order criminal organization emerged from Hydra in Marvel Comics, but they could be connected to other organizations in the MCU, such as A.I.M.

M.O.D.O.K.

Comic book fans know M.O.D.O.K. served on a few different Intelligencia teams. That puts him in line to be the big bad for the series, especially considering the bizarre villain's interest in science. M.O.D.O.K. routinely creates androids and augments humans, possibly hinting at his interest in acquiring She-Hulk's blood.

Another reason to suspect M.O.D.O.K. lies in his upcoming appearance in Ant-Man & The Wasp: Quantummania. His (presumed) debut in that movie also hints at another possible culprit given where the MCU is headed.

Kang The Conqueror

While a stretch, the possibility exists that Kang The Conqueror seeks She-Hulk's blood for his own purposes. Marvel Studios positioned Kang as the big bad for the entire Multiverse Saga spanning Phases 4, 5, and 6, and his reach likely extends far beyond what is obvious. A brilliant scientist armed with advanced technology, he fits the bill.

Comic book fans know The Wrecking Crew use enchanted Asgardian weaponry and while they could have gotten it from New Asgard, they could also have obtained it from Kang, who may have stolen it from time.

Doctor Doom

Another brilliant scientist with unlimited resources and grand ambitions lives in Latveria. Doctor Doom remains on the sidelines in the MCU at the moment, but that likely changes in a major way in the very near future. He always seeks power and advantage, and he may seek She-Hulk's blood in the same way he's sought vibranium in the comics.

In fact, Doom potentially instigates the conflict in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever to obtain vibranium. The effort to obtain She-Hulk's blood could be part of a larger effort to increase his power.

Abomination

Abomination appears reformed in the new show and Jennifer helped win his freedom. Emil Blonsky's story likely continues despite his apparent evolution while behind bars and that could include him seeking her blood for his own reasons. Blonsky gained his incredible powers from exposure to Bruce Banner's blood.

Abomination may also work for another party. He shares strong ties to several villains in the comics and served on The Thunderbolts, who are coming to the MCU in the near future.

The Power Broker

Sharon Carter went through a lot during The Blip and came out on the other side as The Power Broker. The Falcon and the Winter Soldier revealed she engaged in selling Super Soldier serum illegally on the black market and also is using her connection to the Avengers and S.H.I.E.L.D. to line her pockets and those of her so-far unseen accomplice.

Carter would have as much interest in She-Hulk's blood as the Super Soldier serum and her potential connections to other sinister MCU characters suggests she might be the big bad.

The Contessa

Julia Louis-Dreyfuss reprises her role as Contessa Valentina Allegra De Fontaine in the upcoming movie and there are many reasons to think she is behind the attacks on She-Hulk. Her efforts so far connect her to John Walker and the Super Soldier Serum, a scheme that carries broader implications in the MCU.

She also misled Yelena Belova into attacking Hawkeye, a plot that connects her to other key characters in the franchise who could also be She-Hulk's big bad.

Kingpin

Comic book fans know Kingpin has interests beyond power and money. He often explored superhuman potential in Marvel Comics and his experimental efforts led directly to Black Cat gaining her signature powers. He also contributed to The Spot and The Answer gaining their powers as well.

Kingpin shares a tangential connection to The Contessa through Eleanor Bishop. Given that She-Hulk often visits a superhuman prison, where the Thunderbolts were headquartered in Marvel Comics, the puzzle pieces start to line up.

General Thunderbolt Ross

The link between the Intelligencia and the superhuman prison points toward a likely big bad in General 'Thunderbolt' Ross. In Marvel Comics, the Intelligencia played a major role in Ross transforming into the Red Hulk. They used gamma energy from Hulk to do it in the comics but could use She-Hulk's blood in the MCU.

With Ross leading a Thunderbolts team in the comics and many narrative paths in the MCU intersecting with him, he's the most likely suspect for She-Hulk's big bad.
