She-Hulk Episode 7's Clever Reference To A Marvel Comics Legend You May Have Missed

"She-Hulk: Attorney at Law" may be another in a long line of Marvel Cinematic Universe TV shows on Disney+, but over the course of its 1st season, it has differentiated itself from its predecessors. Not only is it the first MCU sitcom, but it also pushes the limits of Disney's family-friendly mandates, exploring the struggles of its titular lead as she navigates her career as a lawyer and the humiliating ordeal of online dating in her mid-30s.

Tatiana Maslany shines as Jennifer Walters, but "She-Hulk" is also packed full of small details that act as rewards for hardcore comic book fans. Some of these occupy entire plotlines, such as Episode 6's inclusion of Mr. Immortal (David Pasquesi), who fans will remember as a member of the satirical Great Lakes Avengers team. However, since many of the Easter eggs are scattered across the background of "She-Hulk," even die-hard comic obsessives may only notice them upon rewatching the show.

One such reference is hidden in "She-Hulk" Episode 7, and it pays homage to one of Marvel's most legendary comics writers who helped make She-Hulk the character fans know and love.

She-Hulk honors comics writer Dan Slott with yet another Easter egg

"She-Hulk" comics writer Dan Slott took to Twitter, drawing fan attention to a "She-Hulk" Episode 7 Easter egg that references him. Across his long and legendary career, Slott has worked on some of the most celebrated runs in comic book history, including a stint on the "She-Hulk" series that inspired the Disney+ show. As Slott highlighted, the tow truck Jen hires near the end of the episode bears the name, "Slott Towing," paying homage to his source material. The truck's driver is even named Dan, as indicated by his name tag.

However, this is far from the first time Slott has gotten his own Easter egg in the MCU. In his tweet, he pointed out three previous ones scattered around the "Spider-Man" trilogy. First up, in "Spider-Man: Homecoming," when Peter Parker (Tom Holland) performs a background check on Aaron Davis (Donald Glover), he finds that Davis lives on "Slott Ave." Next, in a shot from "Spider-Man: Far From Home," an Italian street sign bears the name, "Calle del Slotto," meaning Slott Street. And, as if that weren't enough, when Peter and his classmates touch down at JFK airport at the end of "Far From Home," a limousine driver can be seen holding up a sign for "Slott."

The reason these Easter eggs have, until now, been in "Spider-Man" movies is that, aside from his work on the "She-Hulk" comics, Slott wrote for the relaunched "Amazing Spider-Man" and "The Superior Spider-Man" series, as well as multiple "Avengers," "Fantastic Four," and "Iron Man" stories. Given the influence Dan Slott has had on Marvel comics, he certainly deserves to be memorialized in the MCU.
