Synopsis: She-Hulk discovers Titania owns the name “She -Hulk” and is suing her for trademark infringement.

 

The Story

Titania sues She-Hulk for trademark infringement, which creates a problem as She-Hulk cannot represent herself with such a high-profile case. In order to address this Mallory Book is brought in to represent She-Hulk. Elsewhere, Nikki goes on a bit of a secret mission to find an exclusive fashion designer that only caters to the style of superhuman beings, which is part of her plan to give She-Hulk a fashion Make Over. 

 

The Acting

Tatiana Maslany does a pretty good job of carrying the show in the titular role. But this week Ginger Gonzaga gets a chance to shine in her role of Nikki Ramos and gets some truly funny stuff to play with. I loved the little dance she did when she succeeds in getting the fashion designer to work on some outfits for She-Hulk.

Jameela Jamil gets some fun stuff as Titania and I really enjoyed how she tried to endorse her own products during the court case. But it is Renée Elise Goldsberry who stole the show as She-Hulks lawyer Mallory Brook, who is not particularly impressed with her client.

 

Overall

This series continues to entertain with its mix of light drama and comedy. I loved the idea of the title character being sued for copyright infringement and I loved the argument that Jennifer tries to make about her alter ego’s name when she cites the fact that no one has tried to sue Dr. Strange or Thor. The cast is fantastic and the weekly stories have been fun, but there does not seem to have been much in the way of an overarching story.

Titania is making for an interesting villain, but she seems to be more of a nuisance than a real threat to the show’s heroes. Hopefully, that will change over the next few weeks.  Despite having a few funny moments. This episode felt a little flat when compared to previous weeks.
