Marvel Teases That The MCU Will be Getting Mutants (Not the X-Men)
The seventh episode of She Hulk: Attorney At Law clearly explained the MCU's need for mutants. Organizing the X-Men is simply one aspect of what it was about. Because of what happened at the end of Ms. Marvel, the mutant gene is now an official part of the MCU canon.
The needs of mutants in the MCU are quietly explained by the seventh episode of She Hulk: Attorney at Law. The reveal in the finale of Ms. Marvel, which made the Mutants finally exist, opened the door for Marvel to introduce a number of characters from the X-Men comics as heroes and villains. So, if Marvel wants to use Wolverine, Magneto, Cyclops, and the rest in the future without using the Multiverse, the things that happened in Ms. Marvel should be seen as a must.
The She Hulk series proves that the relevance of mutants extends beyond the X-Men. When She Hulk episode 7 introduced two lesser-known characters, Jennifer Walters showed apathy when Abomination told her about El Aguila and Man-Bull. Thus, she hated to hear unnecessary backstories. Jennifer’s comment explains why the MCU’s decision to include mutants was wise. Because audiences now acknowledge that individuals can naturally possess powers, Marvel no longer provides the origin stories for each of its super-powered characters. To put it differently, Marvel can introduce mutant characters like El Aguila and Mr. Immortal, who have already appeared in comic books as mutants.
Marvel: Phase 4 Will Introduce Mutants
She Hulk’s decision to engage Mr. Immortal and El Aguila raises the total number of known mutants in the MCU in Phase Four to three, with Ms. Marvel apparently being the first one introduced, assuming the MCU is staying true to its comic book origins. Interestingly, a fourth is expected to make its debut before Phase 4 is finally over. Tenoch Huerta, who plays Namor, confirmed in a statement that the Sub-Mariner in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever will enter the MCU in November, and he will be a mutant.
Marvel Mutants Outside the X-Men
Several Marvel characters have greater chances of emerging in the MCU as a result of the presence of mutants. even though some of them have no connection to the X-Men at all. The origin of so many heroes and antagonists, such as Toro, the Melter, Vance Astro, Whirlwind, and Dark Star, justifies their capabilities, although mutants are primarily associated with the X-Men team. There’s also Sabra, who is confirmed to make her live-action debut in Captain America’s: New World Order.
She Hulk: Attorney at Law is a great example of how the concept can help MCU. Even though the majority focuses on the inclusion of the mutant gene, with enough screen time allocated to where they have been, a number of lesser Marvel Comic characters that usually wouldn’t have worked in upcoming MCU episodes and films might now be added with pleasure.
