A New Marvel Villain Character Is Rumored To Be Featured In She-Hulk

Summer 2022 will usher in a new batch of fascinating Marvel Studios projects, including some that introduce strange new narrative ideas and characters to the MCU. Among the new additions is the Disney+ series She-Hulk : Attorney at Law, which will be Marvel Studios’ first Hulk-centric project since 2008’s The Incredible Hulk, and will star Tatiana Maslany.

As shown in the previously released trailer, She-Hulk will have several explicit references to MCU history, including a reference to Stark Industries and a nod to the Abomination’s appearance in Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. The programme will also introduce some bizarre new parts of Marvel Comics history into the streaming sphere, in addition to Jennifer Walters’ long-awaited MCU debut.

Lizzie Hill of The Cosmic Circus reported that “a porcupine man” will feature in Marvel Studios’ upcoming She-Hulk: Attorney at Law series on Disney+. There were no more details about who would portray the role or how he would fit into the plot. According to the site, this character is most likely a reimagining of Porcupine, a Marvel villain who debuted in Tales to Astonish #48 in 1963 and wore a porcupine-themed outfit. The suit could fire porcupine quills, as well as other physical items and gases.


Alexander Gentry or Roger Gocking, both of whom wore the Porcupine outfit in the comics, are the two most likely candidates for the role. Porcupine has appeared as an opponent in a number of Marvel storylines, including those by Hank Pym and the Fantastic Four. As seen by some of the powers in Eternals and rumors about incoming characters in future projects, Marvel Studios isn’t hesitant to bring in some wacky, comic-accurate characters and storylines into Phase 4. Even She-Hulk is indicating that it will be unlike anything else in the Marvel Cinematic Universe on Disney+ in the last eighteen months.

Porcupine might play a range of roles in this new streaming series, from one-off villain to a permanent thorn (or quill) in She-side Hulk’s for the course of the nine-episode run. Jennifer Walters’ work life might bring her into contact with a wide range of interesting and unexpected Marvel characters, and Porcupine, based on She-Comedy Hulk’s narrative, appears to fit right in. On August 17, She-Hulk: Attorney at Law will launch on Disney+.
