She-Hulk Episode 3 Gives Us A Hilarious Peek Into Wong's Mysterious Past

Contains spoilers for "She-Hulk" Season 1, Episode 3

Besides Jennifer Walters (Tatiana Maslany) as the absolute star of the show in "She-Hulk: Attorney at Law," the new Disney+ sitcom laced with gamma radiation also unashamedly homes a host of heroes from other corners of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. After some light anger management from Jen's bartending behemoth cousin, Bruce Banner, aka the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), and the promise of a particular devil yet to reveal himself, this week saw a visit from the Sorcerer Supreme himself, Wong (Benedict Wong). Last seen (at this point, at least) to be scrapping with Emil Blonsky, aka the Abomination (Tim Roth), the fan of Hunka Hulka Burnin' Fudge dropped in to help his former opponent at Jen's request.

Naturally, though, being the excellent attorney she is, Jen does a background check on her witness, revealing some shocking truths about the man who helped turn the tide in the battle against Thanos and held his own against the Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen). Before he was the protector of known and unknown universes, it seems that Wong had a life that Marvel fans may never have anticipated. Like many other heroes before their life-changing events, he seemingly led a mild-mannered existence that, given how vital time travel has become in the MCU, is something we'd kill to see in the future. Well, it's either that, or we get his supervisor involved, and we don't mean the Ancient One (Tilda Swinton).

Wong used to work at Target before discovering the mystic arts

During a background check done by Jen's paralegal, Nikki Ramos (Ginger Gonzaga), it's revealed on Wong's work profile that before he helped Stephen Strange, aka Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch), make sparkly circles and fend off inter-dimensional beings, he had a pretty uneventful day job. For an impressive nine years, Wong kept the forces of angry clientele at bay when he worked as a sales associate at the Kamar-Taj Target. Clearly, the long hours and stress of delivering consistent top-level customer service got the better of him, and he instead took up the job of a librarian while listening to Beyoncé on repeat.

It's always fun to see Marvel characters get fleshed out, and it's nice to know that there are heroes besides Peter Parker (Tom Holland) who had pretty timid lives before being thrown into universe-changing events. The only thing that we need to see now is just what kind of Target employee Wong was, and given his appearance in so many MCU stories of late, it would be an excellent opportunity to shed some light on the history of this underappreciated hero. Why don't we go back further to a less magical moment in Wong's life? For now, we can only wait and see if we'll be getting more Wong when "She-Hulk" stomps onto Disney+ again next week.
