She-Hulk: Attorney At Law Episode 5 Easter Eggs: Titania LLC vs Jennifer Walters

The case between She-Hulk and Titania is actually a callback to a real-life event that happened some time in the 80s when The Incredible Hulk on CBS was at the height of its success and that worried Marvel as they bring in She-Hulk so that CBS wouldn't do a spinoff. By that time, it was a battle of Intellectual Property rights.

She-Hulk: Attorney At Law Episode 5 Easter Eggs: Alonzo, The Drip Broker

Is the term "drip broker," familiar? To start, breaking it down, the term "drip" is a slang for fashion so it just means that the "drip broker" works in an underground fashion atelier, similar to another broker already introduced in the MCU -- the Power Broker in The Falcon and The Winter Soldier.

Also, does the name "Alonzo" ring a bell? Well, this name is probably a huge nod to Marvel Studios' President for Visual Effects, Animation, and Post-Production, and Executive Producer of the series, Victoria Alonso, and to the previous Editor-in-Chief of Marvel comics, Axel Alonso.

She-Hulk: Attorney At Law Episode 5 also has a hilarious take on bootleg products. Usually, movies and series bank on their merchandise for promotion and they are highly susceptible to get rip-offs which is funny because there's "Avongers," even "Avingers," with a variety, huh?

Well, the official Twitter page of the Avengers took this opportunity and they renamed their page "Avongers." These brands are really susceptible to a lot of bootleg items and the show recognizes that to be a problem, something that they can make fun of.

Another character straight out of the comics is Luke Jacobson who is connected to Dakota North. In She-Hulk: Attorney At Law, Luke is an established fashion designer for superheroes, he could put some built-in weaponry, some fire or water resistance in suits.

Luke Jacobson appeared in the comics as the client of Dakota North who have threats fashion-related. Though he hasn't appeared in the comics since then, it's a wise choice to pull him out of the papers and into the series. And his attitude? It's very Edna Mode from The Incredibles!

In court, Titania also gives a callback to all those who mocked She-Hulk when it dropped its first look. See, fans compared She-Hulk to Shrek or even his wife, Fiona. Well, life gave Marvel some lemons so they literally made some lemonade.

Jameela Jamil doesn't stop there, she even tweeted, "weird that we have never seen "She-Hulk" and Princess Fiona in the same room at the same time no?" Jamil just threw that right in the open real quick and the makers of the show are fine with it.
