Official Avengers Twitter Goes Knock-Off As She-Hulk Episode 5 Tribute
Episode 5 finds Walters sued by the fashionable influencer Titania over the usage of the name She-Hulk. Walters’ lawfirm, Goodman, Lieber, Kurtzberg & Holliway (GLK&H), decides to counter-sue Titania with an injunction to get her to stop using the title while Walters’ friend and colleague Nikki Ramos (Ginger Gonzaga) aims to get the titular hero a makeover. After receiving a tip of an underground superhero outfitter, Ramos and co-worker, Augustus « Pug » Pugliese (Josh Segarra), arrive at a boba tea vendor who sells knock-off Avengers gear out of a backroom. With names like Avongers or Avingers, the bootlegger offers mugs, boxers, and t-shirts featuring images of slightly dissimilar Marvel superheroes such as a shovel-wielding Thur, a generic blonde-archer Hawkguy, and a purple Holk.
In honor of the hilarious knock-off gear featured in She-Hulk: Attorney at Law episode 5, the official Avengers Twitter account has also rebranded itself in a similar vein. The account’s logo now features an Avongers logo with knock-off versions of Thor, Hulk, and Captain America. The account’s bio now reads, « Earth’s Toughest Heroes » instead of the Avenger’s classic tagline, Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.
The change to the account is an apt homage to the She-Hulk: Attorney at Law episode, highlighting the show’s playful comedy while still maintaining the theme of the Twitter profile. The show’s fans have also recently taken to social media to express their desire for authentic Marvel-licensed merchandise of the knock-off gear featured in the show. Although the Twitter revamp is humorous, it is likely a temporary change that will find the account reverting to its original theme within two weeks.
