The only way we can stop misogynists from poisoning the culture is by astroturfing the most juvenile insults imaginable. If we donít force ďpinched pee-peeĒ into the lexicon, then the manchildren win.

I was coming at from "welp being mature, intelligent adults doesn't seem to slow them down. gently caress it. Maybe we can out-five-year-old them or something." I'll admit that it's got a lot in common with Trump's "Maybe we can cure COVID by huffing bleach."

One thing I love about She-Hulk is that the MCU is really starting to feel like the Marvel universe. Introducing Mr. Immortal and his legal troubles is a simple way to show how superpowers affect normal people without being part of some superhero/supervillain fight. Heís just some rich narcissist that is terrified of confrontation who happens to use his powers to coast through life. Much like Titania (so far) not being some criminal robbing banks, but an influencer who is just jealous of the protagonist. We get to just live in a silly comic book world without all the other comic book movie tropes.

This and Ms. Marvel are my favorite series because of the intersection of normal people and super-weirdness. While I like Kamala Khan better as a character, I like She-Hulk better as a show. No huge world-threatening stakes (so far, fingers crossed) or big over-arching plots. Just small, fun bits with regularish people colliding with the super aspects of the MCU.

On the one hand, snapping seemed more like "deletion" than a conventional sort of murder, it might bypass whatever his immortality mechanism is.

On the other, (and this is probably misremembered from like 15 years ago), he has a really strong form of immortality, like, "survive to the heat death of the universe" immortality. He might not be targetable? Like, were Celestials/Eternals/other cosmic-level beings affected by the snap, or was it just mortal life?

I guess the big question is whether the snap is a Destroy effect or an Exile effect.

I'm leaning on exile because clearly you can bring all creatures back into play.

It was not intended as an exile or time-out when Thanos snapped though?

Iirc Tony undid the snap itself, he did not wish for everyone to be "unbenched" from not existing.

Edit: oh yeah, right. Bruce, not Tony. It's been a while. Point still stands.

Bruce did the unsnapping. Tony did the snapping for the bad guys.

Did we ever see who the bride was getting married to? I'm rewatching the episode in the background and I swear we never see them.

No we don't. At least there was no formal introduction. I guess the point is that it's her wedding and that the groom is a bit part.

surely itís the other way around right? Exiled permanents are much harder to bring back than destroyed ones. Unless the snap itself functions as a persistent enchantment which I donít think it does.
