Episode 2 of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law expanded on Jen Walters’s new career as She-Hulk as she was hired by a new law firm to become the head of a superhero division. Meanwhile, the case assigned to her was in relation to Emil Blonsky or Abomination, who she was reluctant to take on as a client and was actually seen busting out of prison to fight in an underground fight club. Those who saw Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings would know that Wong and Abomination fought in that very same fight club. So, was Wong responsible for breaking Abomination out of prison?
It is quite possible that Wong was the one who broke Abomination out of prison for reasons that we are yet to be aware of right now. Blonsky’s prison was quite secure, and probably the only one that could get him out of there was a wizard that could open portals from one place to another.
The fact that Abomination’s fight scene with Wong was seen during the end of episode 2 of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law suggests that this series happens at the same time as Shang-Chi. With that said, let’s look at how Abomination could have broken out of an extremely secure prison cell to fight in an underground fight club against Wong.
Does She-Hulk Happen At The Same Time As Shang-Chi?
Even though there is about a year in between the release dates of Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings and She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, we know for a fact that the timeline of MCU events isn’t quite clear in terms of when a certain movie or series happened and which movie or series came first. This is where it gets interesting when it comes to the aforementioned MCU projects that we mentioned.
Back in the events of Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, we saw Shang-Chi and Katy traveling to Macau, where Xialing, Shang-Chi’s sister, was running a secret underground fight club called the Golden Daggers Club. One of the most interesting scenes we saw during this visit to the Golden Daggers Club was a fight between Wong and a familiar MCU face we haven’t seen since 2008.
Yes, we are talking about Emil Blonsky’s Abomination. However, he wasn’t in his human form in this fight as he assumed the form of Abomination to take on the Sorcerer Supreme, Wong, in a fight. Thanks to his ingenuity as a master of the mystic arts, Wong won the fight, but it was hinted that he and Abomination had arranged for him to win because they were actually friends after the fight and had left the venue together through a sling ring portal.
Going back to the events of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, we saw that Jen Walters was fired from her job in the District Attorney’s Office because the DA thought that she was a liability to them in their future cases. After a few days of hunting for a new job, Jen was hired to become the face of the superhero division of a law firm as long as she assumed her She-Hulk form whenever she was on the job. And the first case she was asked to take on was in relation to Emil Blonsky’s parole.
The last time we saw Blonsky in his human form was during the events of the 2008 Hulk movie, where he tried to kill Bruce Banner but ended up getting defeated. Since then, he had been in a maximum-security prison that he couldn’t escape due to how tight the security was, as Jen Walters herself witnessed the security measures firsthand.
Jen visited Blonsky in his prison cell to find out that the former villain had become reformed. He said that he had changed his ways and had chosen to never assume his Abomination form again after he became more enlightened. Blonsky also made a good case to Walters regarding why he fought the Hulk many years ago. And after Jen conferred with Bruce, who said that Blonsky wrote an apology letter to him long ago, she decided to take the case.
That was when she called her boss to tell him that she was going to accept the Blonsky case, only to find out through the television that there were reports that said that Abomination had mysteriously escaped his prison and was now fighting in an underground fight club. The video of the fight was obviously taken from the Shang-Chi scene where Wong fought Abomination.
This suggests that She-Hulk: Attorney at Law and Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings happened at the same time, considering that the news report indicates that the fight between Wong and Abomination happened during the time when Jen Walters had accepted to represent Blonsky as his lawyer.
Of course, we also did in the post-credit scene of Shang-Chi that Bruce was back to his regular form as a human but was wearing an arm sling for the arm that he injured when he used the Infinity Gauntlet. During the first episode of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, Bruce supposedly healed that arm while also reverting back to his Smart Hulk form when his inhibitor device got wrecked.
This presents a conflict between the timeline of these two events, as this may have been something that the people behind She-Hulk: Attorney at Law overlooked when they tried to make it seem like both of these MCU projects happened at the same time. Of course, it could be possible that the fight scene between Wong and Abomination in She-Hulk was a different fight scene, especially if Wong and Abomination often did this.
Did Wong Break Abomination Out Of Prison?
Of course, the one thing we saw right at the end of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law episode 2 was the fact that the reporter was saying that Abomination was seen fighting in an underground fight club against a person that seemed to be Wong, the Sorcerer Supreme. The reporter also said that Blonsky mysteriously broke out of his prison cell. So, does that mean that it was Wong who broke him out?
During the events of Shang-Chi, we did see that Wong and Abomination were friends, as it was quite possible that they were working together the entire time while they were fighting in the Underground Fight Club. And it was possible that they did this so that they could split the prize money between one another, especially considering that Blonsky was looking to start a new life once he got out of prison.
In the scene with Jen Walters, Emil Blonsky did tell her that he met seven soulmates through the prison pen pal program. He also said that his soulmates had already purchased him a home he could spend his entire life in after he got out of prison.
It is possible that Wong was one of these soulmates that he met. But, in order to give Blonsky the life that he deserved, Wong needed to make some money. As such, he might have employed the help of Abomination to win some money in that underground fight club in what looked like the Golden Daggers Club from Shang-Chi.
Of course, considering that Emil Blonsky was in a maximum-security cell, the only person that could have helped him escape his cell without violence or destruction was Wong, who had the ability to create portals using his sling ring. He must have used his sling ring to portal Blonsky out of his prison cell so that they could both participate in that underground fight club.
