Jen comes out, breaks her Inhibitor and blasts through the screen to the Disney+ home menu. She angrily confronts the She-Hulk writer’s room in the Marvel Studios offices on the Disney studio grounds, demanding to speak to “Kevin.”

She meets KEVIN – Knowledge Enhanced Visual Interconnectivity Nexus, of course – a giant AI brain with the most advanced entertainment algorithm in the world, using it to produce near-perfect products. The robot version of Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige tells She-Hulk she can’t choose what happens in her story. “Why not?” she asks. “To be mine show.”

“Incorrect,” the robot responds. “It’s KEVIN’s show.” Regardless of the creative property, Jen notes, “Can we agree it’s a legal comedy? I’d like to make my closing argument.”

Jen explains to KEVIN — and the audience — that almost every Marvel movie ends with a high-stakes storyline and a climax. for Jen, hair there is a balance between life as Jennifer Walters and as She-Hulk.

About Todd, Jen says, “The powers aren’t the villain. He is.” The Hulk doesn’t have to go back to Earth to explain why he spent most of the season on the planet Sakaar. “Save it for the movie,” Jen tells KEVIN As for the Abomination, “I just want him to hold himself accountable.” Oh, and she wouldn’t mind crushing Matt Murdock/Daredevil (Charlie Cox) again. One more thing: “When do we get the X-Men?”

Before she can comment on the direction of Season 2, the Disney+ platform bug has been fixed. She no longer has access to KEVIN. “You’ve wiped out the exciting ending that KEVIN had formulated,” growls the robot.

“Yeah, that’s what Hulks do. We break things,” says Jen. Bruce destroys buildings. I destroy fourth walls and bad endings. And sometimes, Matt Murdock.’

After some creative disagreements with KEVIN, “HulkKing” is arrested; Blonsky surrenders himself to serve a 10-year prison sentence for violating parole, the “karmic price” he has to pay for his actions; and Jen reunites with Daredevil. During a cookout with the Walters/Banner family, Smart Hulk returns to Earth to introduce someone to the family: his Hulk son, Skaar (Wil Deusner).

The finale ends with She-Hulk cleared of her previous conviction and back to work as a lawyer Jennifer Walters. On the steps of the courthouse, the so-called “Difficult Diva of Law” makes her case: “The message we’re sending is that if you attack, harm or harass innocent people, I’ll come get you.” When asked if that means in court or as a superhero, She-Hulk says, “Both.”
