The sixth episode of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law on Disney Plus just introduced an obscure Marvel character to the MCU.
The episode sees Tatiana Maslany’s Jennifer Walters preoccupied with a friend’s wedding, leaving Nikki (Ginger Gonzaga) and Mallory (Renée Elise Goldsberry) to take care of GLK&H’s latest superhuman client. The client in question is Mr. Immortal.
While the character stays true to his comedic comic book roots, it’s unlikely he will be forming an MCU equivalent of the Great Lakes Avengers any time soon.
She-Hulk‘s Mr. Immortal
She-Hulk: Attorney at Law sees the MCU’s Mr. Immortal, real name Craig Hollis (David Pasquesi), coming to GLK&H for help with his divorce, revealing he has a tendency to end his relationships by simply killing himself – only to resurrect moments later.
When Nikki and Mallory pester Mr. Immortal with questions, he again takes the easy way out, jumping out of the window and simply walking away after he fatally strikes the roof of a parked car. However, when footage of the incident and his powers hits the internet, all of his past spouses come forward looking for the compensation they are due.
In Marvel’s comics, Mr. Immortal is a founding member of the Great Lakes Avengers – a superhero team he forms when he decides to use his power for good, but realizes he can’t fight crime alone. The team has changed their name several times in the comics after receiving a cease and desist from the real Avengers, but they seem to keep coming back to the Great Lakes Avengers title.
It’s possible a version of this team will crop up at some point in the MCU, though it looks unlikely this version of Mr. Immortal will ever have much interest in fighting crime.
The first six episodes of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law are now streaming on Disney+, with new episodes releasing each Thursday until Oct. 13.
