THIS STORY CONTAINS SPOILERS FOR

"She-Hulk: Attorney at Law"

Season 1, Episode 4.

SPOILER WARNING!

The fourth episode of "She-Hulk: Attorney at Law" introduced audiences to Madisynn King (Patty Guggenheim), a seemingly vapid figure whose silliness is apparently a shallow disguise, as she was able to pass through deadly alternate realms with ease. She even went on to ruin “The Sopranos” for Sorcerer Supreme Wong (Benedict Wong), before befriending him.
In a unique game of "6 Degrees of Kevin Bacon,” her creation is all thanks to Wednesday Addams, which may sound odd. However, in 2013, writer and performer Melissa Hunter began her YouTube web series "Adult Wednesday Addams," a parody that follows, as the title suggests, an adult version of the familiar “Addams Family” character.
Jessica Gao, the showrunner for "She-Hulk: Attorney at Law," attributed Madisynn’s creation entirely to Hunter, who wrote the episode that introduces her. Gao credited Hunter for her ability to write such a “funny character” and we have to admit there's something intriguing about a writer who can perfect the dry wit of Wednesday Addams and then turn around and create a flawless antithesis.
