She-Hulk series gives nods to X-Men, Deadpool, Miles Morales, Fantastic Four and more…

September 19th, 2022 by Marc Comments

So, on last week’s episode of She-Hulk, we got a pretty cool nod to chapters that may already exist in the MCU that we love but have not met yet.

In the episode we saw the artwork in the credits showing off Pug’s, played by Josh Segarra, very impressive collection of superhero runners and in among the obvious ones was a few familiar ones but familiar if you read the comics or watched FOX’s X-Men movie as some of the characters have yet to appear in the MCU.

Now, the chaps on this Twitter thread have been trying to work out who all the shoes represent and we’ve put them all below for you but there are still a few unknowns, so if you have an idea, then feel free to let us know in the comments below.

Anyways, here’s the image:

And here’s who the shoes likely represent [the ones in dark type are characters not yet seen/acknowledged in the MCU]:

1 Miles Morales
2 Dr strange
3 Falcon
4 Hulk
5 ?
6 Hawkeye
7 Emma frost
8 Dr doom
9 Wolverine
10 Cable
11 Captain America
12 ?
13 Ghost Rider
14 Nova
15 ?
16 Ms Marvel
17 The Thing
18 Deadpool
19 ?
20 Ironman
21 Namor
22 Green goblin
23 ?
24 ?
25 Electro
26 Captain Marvel
27 Cyclops
28 ?
29 Spider-man
30 Black Panther
31 ?
32 America Chavez?
33 Moon Knight
34 She-hulk

On the inclusion of these very cool Easter runners, er, eggs, director David Bruckner had this to say: “All those Easter eggs in that drawing, a lot of other minds had input there, and I did not. So I can’t really speak to that.”

Thanks, David, very insightful.

So, it looks like Deadpool, X-Men, Miles Morales and the Fantastic Four all may have had their first official mods in the MCU as a throwaway image in She-Hulk and, honestly, I’m ok with that as it’s where the fans are most likely to be looking hardest.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
