Secret Wars Is Different: She-Hulk Makes Reveal About Upcoming Project

She-Hulk: Attorney at Law’s recent teaser shows a minor detail that suggests the much-anticipated Secret Wars project is going in a very different direction than expected. When it comes to borrowing stories from other sources, the MCU has a tendency to take creative liberties, and the Marvel Multiverse will be no exception. As a result of projects like Loki and the Multiverse of Madness, the next wave of MCU films will feature a clash of universes akin to the Secret Wars. When it comes to that clash, Titania may provide a clue in the form of the antagonist.

To set the stage for future events like Secret Wars (1984), a direct sequel that didn’t do nearly as well, and a much larger-scale event in 2015, Secret Wars was Marvel’s first major crossover comic. Battleworld, a patchwork planet assembled by the cosmic being known as The Beyonder, is the setting for the original story’s epic showdown between the Avengers and the X-Men. This battle pits Spider-Man and the Hulk against Magneto and Doctor Doom, among other villains. While the logic for the 2015 event is largely the same, it will include worlds from across the Marvel Multiverse rather than just the Earth-616 Universe.

Why Secret Wars Storyline Could Be Different

It’s possible that Marvel is going to do something unexpected by combining the 1984 and 2015 Secret Wars events rather than just using the 2015 event alone. However, despite the fact that the MCU is almost certain to be setting up for a Secret Wars-style event, it appears that whatever plot is being set up may actually be borrowing from one of its predecessors. It would also be consistent with the MCU’s tendency to select and choose from comic storylines rather than adapting them completely.

The fact that Titania will appear in the upcoming Disney+ series makes sense because she is one of She-only Hulk’s reliable foes who isn’t related to her cousin. The storyline for a future Secret Wars episode could be quite different, though. Titania, as she first appeared in the Secret Wars storyline from 1984, was a normal woman who was sucked into the original Battleworld and given superhuman abilities by none other than the cunning Doctor Doom himself.

Will There Be A Secret Wars Crossover In She-Hulk?

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness’ ending suggests that Marvel is moving toward a Secret Wars-style scenario. but it’s taking more cues from the 2015 Secret Wars, rather than the 1984 one, which didn’t use multiverse theory at all, making Titania’s appearance noteworthy. Using Titania in the MCU’s version of the storyline would at the very least be a nod to the 1984 event. She-Hulk, on the other hand, is likely to take her cousin’s place in a crossover for the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Titania’s treatment, on the other hand, is in keeping with the MCU’s habit of cherry-picking details from across the vast continuity of Marvel to use in its films. Even if a film does use some elements of a comic book storyline or idea, the filmmakers tend to pick and choose the best ones to fit in with the ever-expanding MCU. The fact that Titania appears in the MCU before Doom does implies that her origin story will be quite different.

In the MCU, The Power Broker, better known as Sharon Carter, was granted her superhuman abilities, so it’s safe to assume she’ll be a hybrid of the first Marvel villain to go by that name. Her appearance in She-Hulk: Attorney at Law suggests that Marvel is looking to draw from the Secret Wars story rather than just its most recent one next big crossover, and that implies it will probably look a lot different from either of them.
