‘She/ Hulk’ Law Firm is One Big, Meta, Easter Egg
The long-awaited Disney+ series is just a couple of days away, and with its promotional campaign heating up, and the premiere finally over, were in the home stretch to its official release; one of the coolest things we’ve uncovered is that the She/ Hulk law firm is one big, meta, easter egg.
There are few characters in the massive pantheon of Marvel lore that are as unique as Jennifer Walters; a hero who shares a very interesting perspective with only a few other Marvel heroes, as a part-time New York City Lawyer, and part-time superhero.
Her upcoming Disney+ series will be set to delve deep into the world of a young woman’s journey in the incredibly competitive business that is the legal profession, a pursuit that gets all the more complicated when she accidentally gets a blood infusion from her cousin, Bruce Banner.
That’s not all that makes Walters an all-around unique character, as she has consistently had the power to break the fourth wall in the source material, giving her a very unique ability that is only granted to one other Marvel character; Deadpool of all heroes.
This makes She/ Hulk the perfect outlet for Marvel to include a whole host of easter eggs that will fit perfectly in the fourth-wall-breaking world that they inhabit, and that is not seen any better than in maybe the biggest wink that Marvel Studios could give.
As it turns out, the She/ Hulk law firm is one big, meta, easter egg; and it acts as a nod to some of the most important names in the history of Marvel.
Shown in the most recent trailer for the series= a fantastically filmed commercial- it was described that GLK/H is an acronym for Goodman, Lieber, Kurtzberg, and Holliway, and those first three names are hallowed in this Marvel Universe.
Although Holliway is in reference to a character in the series, the three other names in that title are names that every Marvel fan will know, and will know well.
Marvel Studios’ #SheHulk : Attorney at Law, an Original series, starts streaming Thursday on @DisneyPlus.

Goodman is a reference to Martin Goodman- the man responsible for launching Timely comics, the publication that would eventually become Marvel. Lieber is in reference to Stanley Lieber, the birth name of our beloved Stan Lee, and Kurtzberg, the birth name of Jack Kirby
There will certainly be a lot of these kinds of easter eggs throughout the series, and this is a perfect note, to begin with as it is smart, meaningful, and very well hidden; everything that makes a very good, and memorable, easter egg.
